Overview of Facelift in the Los Angeles Area

Undergoing a facelift in Beverly Hills is an effective way to lift sagging skin, eliminate wrinkles, and reduce other signs of aging. This results in a younger-looking and refreshed appearance.

What Is a Facelift?

A facelift, technically called a rhytidectomy, is a facial cosmetic surgery targeting the mid and lower face. With the help of specialized techniques, drooping skin is lifted to attain a more well-defined appearance.

Areas that may be treated during a facelift include the cheeks, under-eye area, jaw, chin, and neck. It can either be performed separately or in combination with procedures like the brow lift, neck lift, and eyelid lift for more comprehensive results.

Am I a Good Candidate?

The facelift procedure is commonly performed for patients ages 40 or older. Ideal candidates for facelift surgery are in good overall health, are non-smokers, and have realistic expectations.

Visible skin laxity is the major consideration for candidacy, but patients should still have some degree of skin elasticity to be eligible. Patients must not have any underlying conditions that could get in the way of healing and recovery.

Your Facelift Consultation

In order to determine your compatibility for facelift surgery, your consultation will involve a physical examination of your face and neck. Photographs may be taken for your before-and-after comparison so you can see the dramatic changes.

Dr. Davis Nguyen will review your medical history, including any current medications and supplements. You will be asked about any past surgeries, pre-existing health conditions, and allergies. The type of anesthesia to be used will also be discussed during this time.

An individualized treatment plan will be developed to address your specific concerns. You will be able to ask any questions you may have regarding the facelift process.

The Facelift Procedure

First, anesthesia will be administered. Then, incisions will be made in less visible areas in order to camouflage post-surgical marks. Incision site and size depends on the type of facelift you are getting—they can be in your hairline, under your chin, and/or around your ears.

Tissue will be lifted, removed, and/or redistributed until the desired outcome is achieved. The incisions will be closed with stitches.

The process can take several hours, especially if done in conjunction with other cosmetic rejuvenation surgeries.

The Recovery Process

Your recovery can take a few weeks, depending on the complexity of your procedure. A bandage will be applied over the treated areas to minimize swelling and bruising. Rest with your head elevated to hasten the healing process.

You may feel a degree of pain and discomfort for the first few days, which can be managed with medications as directed. You may be able to return to work after two to three weeks.

Cost of Facelift Surgery

The cost of a facelift varies from patient to patient due to Dr. Nguyen’s specialized approach to each unique case. The anesthetic and surgical fees may affect the overall price. There will be additional costs for any combination procedures.

As an Anesthesiologist who works closely with Dr. Nguyen, I can tell you that he is an excellent surgeon and collogue. He cares greatly for his patients both inside the operating room and out. He works meticulously and never rushes any procedure. Patient well-being and desired outcome are his top priorities. I can only give my highest recommendation as he is definitely one of the best.

Dr. Nguyen is truly an artist! I see him for injectables (as well as my husband) and get botox and fillers. It looks so natural that when I tell my close friends they're shocked and don't even believe I had anything done. He's very kind, patient and has such a beautiful fancy office and friendly staff. It truly is such a pleasure going to see him and always leave his chair feeling more youthful and confident. Highly recommend him for any surgical or non-surgical procedures!!

I was considering some top Beverly Hills plastic surgeons--and while they were all skilled, I wasn't confident until I met Dr. Nguyen. When I saw how artistic, meticulous and caring he is--he was my only choice. He is the perfect combination of brilliant surgeon, compassionate doctor and artist. Every single detail in his practice is like being in a 5 star hotel. Most importantly, every person who works with him is gracious, warm, and 5 steps ahead of anything you need. Dr. Natalie, Gaby, Van and Jessica are so lovely, gentle, positive and reassuring --they may be actual angels. As for the results, I look 10-20 years younger (depending on the day) and very natural. I am super open about telling my friends and clients what I've done, when they remark on how much better I look. Whenever I find someone or something amazing--it should be shared!! When people find out what I did, and how natural it looks---ALL of them want Dr. Nguyen's number. This is a complete rave review, and if you become one of Dr. Nguyen's lucky clients--you will be writing one too. I recommend Dr. Nguyen and everyone who works for him with unlimited gratitude and enthusiasm.

Our Philosophy

We feel that the approach to facial plastic surgery by both patient and doctor should be a conservative one, and the result should appear natural and balanced.

There are several core philosophical principles that drive our practice. We feel that the approach to facial plastic surgery by both patient and doctor should be a conservative one. We feel that results should appear natural and balanced so that a patient looks like the best version of his or herself, not a bizarre approximation of someone else. We believe that the best outcomes are achieved when a patient and surgeon share a common objective and when there is consensus regarding aesthetic taste. We encourage a holistic approach to anti-aging because true youthfulness requires a combination of attitude, physical well being, as well as appearance.

While facial plastic surgery is often pursued to restore a youthful appearance, its results are most effective when a patient is vigilant about preserving mind, body, and spirit alike. Last, and perhaps most importantly, we believe that each of our patient’s needs is unique and that their course of treatment should reflect that of uniqueness. We strive to give the utmost in personalized care and service. From your first phone call to our office through your final follow-up visit, you will be given the time and attention needed to help you realize your individual aesthetic goals.
