At The Roxbury Institute, all of our facelifts are completely tailored to your unique needs. Even though aging affects everyone at some point, it doesn’t affect us all the same way. As such, we approach each individual client with fresh eyes, addressing your specific signs of aging to restore a fresh and youthful look. Throughout this process, we will aim to make changes that are extremely-natural looking and will subtly enhance your features, rather than dramatically altering your appearance. In this way, we’ll avoid the overdone, “pulled back” look that is characteristic of so many poorly performed facelifts.
When sagging skin, heavy jowls and wrinkles transform the face you see in the mirror, it can be a disconcerting experience. Fortunately, you don’t have to accept these unwanted changes as an inevitable fact of life. With an expertly performed facelift at The Roxbury Institute, you can improve these signs of aging and restore a refreshed look that can take years off your appearance.
An overview of a facelift
A facelift has the ability to rejuvenate your appearance by addressing telltale signs of facial aging. When performed with skill and precision by a highly experienced surgeon, the procedure is designed to:
- Tighten loose and sagging skin
- Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
- Restore firm and attractive facial contours
- Redefine the jawline
- Restore a more youthful facial appearance
For many of our Beverly Hills patients, facial aging impacts more than their looks – it affects the way they feel about themselves. They no longer enjoy taking photos or even socializing because of their aging face. When this occurs, a meticulous facelift at The Roxbury Institute can enhance more than your aesthetic appearance – it can improve your self-esteem and the way you interact with the world.
Your facelift will be performed under general anesthesia, which means you will be unconscious and completely comfortable throughout the procedure. From there, we will select a strategic surgical approach that is in your best interest, depending on the severity of your signs of aging and the cosmetic issues you’re having addressed.
For example, if you have advanced signs of aging such as deep lines, wrinkles, excess fat, sagging skin and jowls, you may require a traditional full facelift. With a lengthy incision that begins at the temple and runs around the ear and down to your neck, this approach allows us to produce the most dramatic results. If your signs of aging are less severe, you may qualify for a mini facelift. With smaller incisions and a shorter recovery time, this is a great way for younger patients to target earlier signs of aging on the jaw, cheeks and neck.
Regardless of the approach used, our goal during surgery will be to tighten the underlying muscles, remove excess fat and firm sagging skin, all while restoring a fresh and youthful appearance. Once your procedure is complete, we will close the incisions to minimize any scarring and ensure a discreet final outcome.
