Learn more here about the different methods of facelift surgery available, and find out which one may be the most appropriate facial rejuvenation solution for you.

How can a facelift help me?

Like it or not, the face is typically one of the first areas to show the signs of aging. With sun exposure, stress, and other factors, facial aging can progress quickly and make a person look and feel much older than they actually are. For patients who are frustrated or embarrassed by the following concerns, facelift surgery may be a fitting solution:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Skin laxity/loose skin
  • Heavy brow
  • Drooping jowls
  • Hollow cheeks
  • Volume loss
  • Deep facial folds
  • Downturned mouth/constant frown
  • Tired or angry appearance

What’s the best age for facelift surgery?

When it comes to facelift FAQ, “What’s the right age for facelift surgery?” is nearly always at the top of the list. While full facelift surgery is typically reserved for patients in their 50s, 60s, and older, there are a number of other facelift approaches that can help patients turn back the clock at a younger age. More important than age, however, is the nature and severity of the patient’s complaints. For instance, patients with advanced signs of facial aging may benefit most from a full facelift, while patients with mild to moderate wrinkles and skin laxity can often reach their goals with a less extensive procedure, such as a mid-facelift.

During your initial consultation for a facelift in Beverly Hills, Dr. Hakimi will thoroughly evaluate your concerns, discuss your desired outcome, and determine which kind of facelift may be most appropriate for you. Popular types of facelift surgery include:

  • Full facelift (traditional facelift)
  • Mini facelift
  • Mid-facelift
  • Lower facelift

Additionally, Dr. Hakimi may recommend a brow lift, neck lift, or facial fat transfer to complement your facelift surgery and give you even more complete, natural-looking, and long-lasting results.

Can I still get a facelift at 70 years old?

Absolutely! Many patients choose to wait until later in life to undergo facelift surgery. While facelift results at an advanced age may appear more dramatic, patients who get facelift surgery at a younger age often enjoy longer-lasting results. In either case, Dr. Hakimi takes great care to ensure the most artistic and natural-looking outcome possible. Rather than simply pulling the skin tight or transforming your face altogether, the goal of facelift surgery with Dr. Hakimi is to reverse the signs of aging and make you look like a younger and more refreshed version of yourself.
