Beverly Hills, CA plastic surgeon Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz offers a full spectrum of facial plastic surgery procedures. One of the most common surgeries is a facelift. This surgical treatment focuses on precise areas of the face to correct loose skin and wrinkles to create a smooth, more youthful appearance. Based upon your aesthetic goals, a facelift can focus on the areas around the eyes, the mid-face area and cheeks, the bottom section including the mouth, jowls, and neck, and more for an all-around younger look. The type of facelift used depends on your desired outcome, the health and condition of your skin, the degree of skin laxity, lifestyle, age, and other factors. Some individuals are ready for a full facelift, while some may only need a mid-face lift, or upper face lifting. Dr. Schwartz is an experienced surgeon who understands the anatomy and complex intricacies of a facelift procedure. The objective is to produce a natural-appearing result that's undetectable and aesthetically appealing.
Ideal candidates for facelift surgery are frustrated by noticeable facial wrinkles and lines whether it be the face as a whole or a specific section, such as the mid-face and lower face. A facelift can target various sections depending on our unique signs of aging. It's also important to note that age doesn't always define the timing to have cosmetic facial surgery. There are countless unique concerns and reasons, in addition to numerous lift types depending on the concerns being addressed. The treatment chosen will be different for patients who are in their 30s vs those who are over 60. Skin laxity is one of the key components in the decision making process. Patients should be physically healthy and be a nonsmoker, and also have expectations that are realistic.
"A+ overall experience. I had an orbital blow out a while back from a snowboarding accident. Over the years I have noticed some issues with the first surgical repair. Seeking recommendations from Doctor Schwartz, I made an appointment that was long overdue. From the moment I entered the office, I was greeted by very professional and extremely pleasant office staff who made me feel welcome. Dr. Schwartz’s and his staff were very friendly and easy to discuss my issues with. We discussed several options and made me feel very comfortable in how to move forward. I was very pleased with my experience with Dr. Schwartz, his staff, the Roxbury clinic and my overall experience that day. I would highly recommend Dr. Schwartz as he is very knowledgeable, caring and very passionate about his work."- T.S. / Google / Jun 07, 2017

Regardless of your aesthetic concerns, there are numerous facelifts to consider. Some facelifts treat the upper area of the face, and other lifts focus on the lower two-thirds. Moreover, some techniques are a bit more invasive than others. It's very common for some individuals to have a brow lift, or BOTOX and fillers to complement the outcomes. Some of the more known facelift techniques include:
- Full Facelift
A common surgery for older adults, the full or "traditional" facelift usually incorporates an incision near the hairline, extending down to the temple region, stopping near the base of the ears. The deeper layer of facial muscles are delicately stretched and securely tightened to create a lifted appearance, which reduces excessive wrinkles and sagging. A full facelift is used for patients who show signs of aggressive aging. During a full facelift, several treatments may be combined, including an eyelid lift to address the eyes or neck reduction for the lower region.
- Mid Facelift
Incorporating a similar method to the mini facelift, the cheek lift (known as a mid-facelift) addresses the droopy features around the cheekbones as well as the upper jaw. The mid facelift works great for those who desire improvement to middle to lower region of the face, which also includes the jowls.
- Lower Facelift
A lower facelift corrects the neck region and chin and sometimes the jowls. Methods of nonsurgical nature, such as Kybella or laser skin tightening, can also be applied for chin augmentation and a younger-looking neck.
- Mini Facelift
When undergoing a mini facelift, a tiny incision is placed near the ears to elevate and pull the skin gently, which helps the mouth and jawline. This technique creates nice and subtle enhancements that look beautiful and natural.
What to Expect
No matter which facelift procedure you undergo, the primary goal is to produce a gorgeous and visually appealing result. Most facelift surgeries are often completed while under TIVA anesthesia. The timing of the procedure depends on how invasive the surgery is, in addition to if other procedures were combined. The majority of patients feel and physically look better after about a month. You you can expect a smoother and younger-looking facial appearance. Overall, the face will appear rejuvenated and fresh.
