What is a facelift?

A facelift can revitalize the lower face, especially the jowls. It will not address folds and creases in the brow or forehead, or be able to combat aging around the eyes. It will, however, tone and refresh the skin around the upper neck, jaw and cheeks.  In a facelift, excess sagging skin will be elevated and trimmed, natural fat pad position and volume restored, and neck muscles tightened.

For comprehensive improvement, Dr. Zampell can use fat grafting in combination with a facelift to help reverse facial volume loss. In many cases, a concurrent brow lift and blepharoplasty can be performed to create improvements across the board.

Patients pursuing facelift surgery are often concerned about looking "pulled" or "taut". Understanding that with a facelift less is more, Dr. Zampell is very sensitive to their concerns, and uses only the most conservative surgical techniques that produce elegant, natural outcomes tailored to the patient's unique anatomical structures.

What are the benefits of a facelift?

  • Smoother, tighter skin
  • Improved jawline
  • More attractive profile
  • Increased confidence in one's image
  • Results can be enhanced with facial fillers
  • Helps reverse unwanted signs of aging

Who makes a good facelift candidate?

Good candidates for a facelift are typically in their 40s, 50s or 60s and would like to see a more youthful face when they look in the mirror. Patients should be non-smokers who are mentally and physically healthy, with no major medical concerns and reasonable skin elasticity.

Potential patients should be realistic in what they believe a facelift can accomplish aesthetically. A facelift can help tighten sagging jowls, reduce wrinkles and lines, firm up underlying facial muscles and reduce the hollow areas underneath the eyes, but it cannot make you look like a completely different person. Dr. Zampell will help determine your candidacy during your confidential Beverly Hills consultation.

What will my recovery entail?

As with most surgeries, you will experience some swelling, bruising and tenderness. Dr. Zampell will do her best to minimize these side effects through her cutting-edge, conservative techniques. Dr. Zampell will send you home with a detailed aftercare plan and will schedule follow-up visits to ensure your recovery stays on track.
