Male Face & Neck Lift Los Angeles, CA
Dr. Hughes has performed hundreds of face and neck lifts, and he has developed a variety of short scar techniques, which make it very difficult to determine if anything has been done. The results can be dramatic or subtle, but they are always natural and always tailored to meet the needs of the individual whether they hail from Los Angeles or Boston, Beverly Hills or Pittsburgh.
Dr. Hughes typically makes only an incision hidden around the ear (periauricular incision). The incision does not extend into the forehead or into the hairline.
The hairlines are not shifted as you may see in other facelifts. Dr. Hughes is able to get natural results without giving away that something has been done. Many famous models, actors and personalities have had facelifts — some are easy to identify, some are not.
Look at the photo galleries of facelifts and see for yourself. The cheeks are natural as are the necks and jowls. The scars are imperceptible. The ears appear unaltered. There is no wind tunnel look, and Dr. Hughes’s patients do not appear pulled or frozen.
Typical recovery is about 1 week of bruising and swelling, which varies from person to person. There is very little pain associated with the procedure. Complications are relatively rare and will be explained in detail during your consultation with Dr. Hughes.
Frequently, people with signs of facial aging want to address their wrinkles or folds, particularly the nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Dr. Hughes offers both fillers (Restylane, Radiesse, Juvederm) for these, which are temporary, and facial fat grafting, which is largely permanent.
In addition, Dr. Hughes may recommend upper and lower eyelid surgery (or upper and lower blepharoplasties) or a brow lift to complete your transformation. A little or a lot, Dr. Hughes can satisfy your desires.
