Why Do I Need a Facelift?
What Is the Difference Between a Facelift and a Mini Facelift?
New techniques like the mini facelift have been developed to reduce the visible signs of aging without the lengthy recovery time. A mini facelift in Beverly Hills is often considered to be a minimally invasive surgery, since it involves smaller incisions than a full facelift, along with incremental tissue pulling. This results in minimized scarring and downtime.
A traditional facelift, on the other hand, involves larger incisions and deep tissue manipulation. This provides more dramatic results.

What are Dr. Nguyen’s Patients Saying?
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.
