As an expert in facial surgery, Dr. Hicks delivers unparalleled care to every patient from the moment he gives them the facts about the procedure.
A Southern California facelift procedure, also called rhytidectomy surgery, can turn back the clock, restoring your youthful appearance. Age, stress, gravity, and the sun all take a heavy toll on your face. Over the years, deep creases, sagging skin, and fat deposits can appear, making you look older than you feel. A facelift can correct these problems.
The Facelift Process
At the start of the facelift process, you will meet with Dr. Hicks for a consultation in order to ensure that you are a good candidate. Most of our Southern California facelift patients are in their 50s or 60s, but a facelift can also benefit younger patients after massive weight loss. The ideal candidate for the procedure is in good overall health and has realistic expectations.
During a facelift, excess skin and fat are removed and the muscles are tightened in the lower two thirds of your face and your neck. As a result, your face and neck will be firmer, smoother and younger looking. Other procedures, such as eyelid surgery or a forehead lift can be performed at the same time as your Southern California facelift for a more dramatic effect.
Once the procedure has been completed, you will need to rest and recover. Recovery involves staying home from work for a time, caring for your incisions properly, and avoiding physically taxing activities for around two weeks. Bruising and swelling will be present but are only temporary and can be reduced using cold compresses.
Excellent service, friendly atmosphere, office staff and doctor made me feel very comfortable and at ease. All my concerns and questions were answered and procedure availability was perfect. Post op has been great. Doctor was available after hours via telephone and genuinely concerned with my recovery.
We have compiled a general list of Commonly Asked Questions to give you a clear understanding of the process. As a highly experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Hicks is also happy to give you more details about the procedure and to address any questions and concerns that you may have.
Our Before and After Gallery lets you view facelift before and after photos so that you can see actual examples of facelift results.
The price of a rhytidectomy depends on many factors. Facelift cost is impacted by the type of anesthesia used, the amount of time the procedure takes to perform, the exact techniques utilized, and various other factors. We also offer numerous financing options, including CareCredit, Alphaeon, Prosper Healthcare Lending, and United Medical Credit.
