Modern facelift procedure
Facelift procedures used by Dr. Torkian are a far cry from those done only a decade ago. The stretched and over processed look seen on some celebrities is a result of trying to correct signs of aging by simply stretching the facial skin back. This does nothing to lift the underlying muscle structure, which is the cause of the problem. As a double board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Torkian is intimately acquainted with deep facial structures and how to correct them. His work is heralded as beautiful and natural, providing his delighted patients with a younger version of themselves.
A facelift can be targeted to correct different areas of the face. The mid face area is usually the first area corrected, however, patients can also have wrinkles and frown lines corrected by having a brow lift along with a mid face lift. A neck lift can be done if it is determined that lifting the midface area won’t achieve the correction needed in the neck. Finally, for patients with bags under the eyes or hooded eyelids, eyelid surgery in Beverly Hills can be done either alone or in conjunction with a facelift.
Injectables have revolutionized the field of facial rejuvenation. They are non invasive and can give a patients a preview of what a facelift might do for them. Many patients begin with remedying lost fullness in the cheek area using the appropriate injectable, and adding Botox to the treatment to relax frown lines. There are injectables that have recently been approved for use in the fine lines around the mouth called smoker’s lines. As well, injectables can be used in the back of the hands to restore youthful plumpness. The hands are often neglected in rejuvenation programs, yet the hands can give away age faster than the face.
An exciting non surgical treatment for double chin has recently been approved by the FDA. Kybella® is an injectable that dissolves chin fat over several months, leaving a more defined chin and neck area. The downside with injectables during a non-surgical facelift in Beverly Hills is that they aren’t permanent. For patients with advanced signs of aging, a facelift is really the best option since injectables would provide only a slight improvement.Learn more about facial injectables
