Los Angeles Face Lift

A Face Lift or Rhytidectomy removes excess skin and repositions fat and muscles to correct jowls, deep lines from the nose to the mouth, and minimal to moderate neck laxity which naturally occur with aging. Some patients having facelift surgery may also require a neck lift, neck liposuction, or neck muscle repair (platysmaplasty) for more extensive neck treatment. Since a face lift does not change the quality of the skin itself, a chemical peel or laser resurfacing is often performed in the same setting.

Usually 45 and over, however in some cities including Los Angeles, face lift surgery may be performed as early as the 30's depending on the patient's needs.

Los Angeles Face Lift Surgical Technique:
The incision is made in front of the ear, inside the ear, and then extends behind the ear by the earlobe. The skin, fat, and muscle are separated, lifted and then re-draped to a more youthful-appearing position. Often times, the fat and muscle are sutured in place to prevent premature descent. Dr. Hoenig is an expert in the deep plane face lift, SMAS lift, and other advanced facelift surgery techniques. Extra care is taken in suturing the incision to minimize the scar, rendering it virtually invisible after the initial healing period.
