With aging comes slackened, buckled skin and a general downward shift in facial tissues as gravity
and degeneration take their toll, all resulting in an older, more tired or angrier appearance.
When performed properly, a facelift rejuvenates the face and neck by removing selected localized fat
bulges (the jowls) while resuspending others (the malar fat pads along with the nasolabial folds) and
tightening deeper sagging structures (muscle and connective tissue-SMAS), concluded by a skillful redraping of the skin.
As a Beverly Hills facelift specialist, Dr. Randal Haworth states: "The human face is a sandwich in the sense that it is comprised of different layers- skin, subcutaneous fat, fascia and muscle with nerves and blood vessels running through and between them. Consequently, performing a facelift is always challenging since the plastic surgeon must appreciate and surgically address the different thicknesses, textures and elastic qualities of these individual layers to redrape them in relationship to each other and the underlying shape of the skull."

The facelift is a commonly performed plastic surgery.

Furthermore, Dr. Haworth has performed facelifts on people with every racial characteristic and anatomical variation, including Caucasians, Middle Easterners, Hispanics, Asians, and African Americans.Most Appropriate Candidates for Facelifts
Facelifts are generally performed on an outpatient basis at The Haworth Institute
using sedative or general anesthesia. However, Dr. Haworth has his patients spend a night
or two in an accredited aftercare facility to monitor for any of the infrequent complications which may arise.
To perform your facelift, Dr. Haworth begins by making the necessary incisions in and around the ears. Dr. Randal Haworth, a specialist in facelift in Beverly Hills has the acute skills and eye for detail to deliver the most natural-looking results. After making the incisions, Dr. Haworth elevates the skin by separating it's undersurface from the underlying fascia and muscles. The extent to which he does this depends on each individual and their unique aesthetic problems.
At this point, utilizing unique techniques he has developed over 17 years of practice, Dr. Haworth then raises the deeper structures by "tightening" the SMAS or superficial muscular aponeurotic system with special sutures. In this way he can diminish the troublesome nasolabial fold, eradicate the jowl and redefine the jawline. The aging neck can be dramatically rejuvenated by re-draping the skin, removing excess fat and tightening the unwanted platysmal bands.
Once these deeper facial anatomic structures are vertically secured bilate rally and symmetrically, the skin is finally redraped and inset into its new position utilizing the skills of an expert tailor and watchmaker. What separates a good from a spectacular facelift result is obsessive attention to detail, avoiding tension across the skin incision during closure and the recreation of the beautiful facial contours of youth.
Dr. Randal Haworth, a specialist in my facelift in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, goes on to say, "Since every patient is unique, a facelift has to be strategically and precisely tailored to each individual. The plastic surgeon needs to perform the facelift in accordance to the underlying bone structure and each patient's idiosyncratic aesthetic and social goals."
Dr. Haworth, being a facelift specialist in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, explains to his patients that
a facelift may not only address a sagging midface, troublesome jowls and ill-defined jawline, but it may also
dramatically tighten and correct a sagging neck ("turkey gobbler" neck). In the last few years, Dr. Randal Haworth
has perfected techniques whereby he can perform a neck lift (Also known as a cervicoplasty) independent of a full facelift.
A neck lift is relatively easy to recover from and patients can generally return to their normal activities within a week or so. This is ideal for busy professionals, celebrities and others who cannot take much time off from their demanding schedules. Dr. Haworth goes on to say, "What is especially appealing about a neck lift is that it not only tightens and rejuvenates an aging neck but it also reestablishes a youthful jawline, while minimizing the appearance of jowls. Considered it a lower facelift, if you will."
A classic facelift will deliver a smooth, fresh, rejuvenated look that can last for years.
However, it can't stop the clock. Depending on how you age over time, you may safely touch up the
procedure one or more times, perhaps seven to fifteen years down the line. Adjuvant therapies such as
advanced fractionated laser treatment, fat transfer, lip lifts etc. can also be employed to optimally maintain your new visage.
Occasionally plastic surgery does not achieve the exact results you had hoped for. You must remember, however, that surgery isn't a means of achieving perfection but improvement. However, if you are unhappy with the appearance of your face after having undergone previous facelift surgery, Dr. Randal Haworth offers revision (or secondary) facelift. As a top facelift surgeon in Beverly Hills known for his technical and aesthetic precision, Dr. Haworth has extensive experience with revision patients who can expect notable improvement but still must have realistic expectations as to the end result.
When evaluating any potential revision facelift patient at his Beverly Hills office, Dr. Haworth will review certain salient details of your previous procedure to determine what may have been done and what went wrong so that he can correct the underlying mistakes. Often times, the cornerstone of this revision facelift procedure usually requires an astute appreciation of skin tension and vectors. One of the top revision facelift specialists in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, Dr. Haworth uses a variety of different techniques to achieve this goal.
Among the traits possessed by the world's top facelift specialists are an advanced understanding of the facial anatomy and functionality and an exceptional surgical skill is required to perform these procedures. Dr. Randal Haworth says, "Even though refined technical skill is required with facelift surgery, an artistic vision with exceptional aesthetic sensibility is also necessary to allow a result to transcend from good to great. I consider it a constant challenge, reminding me to always critically evaluate and better myself in the process."
Dr. Haworth's facelifts are significantly more sophisticated than in generations past, resulting in far more subtle, natural and yet effective outcomes than ever before.
Understanding this wide spectrum of facial types has lead Dr. Haworth to analyze each face with his multidimensional approach. His unique method of surgical facial rejuvenation is more visual than mathematical. He realizes that the deeper structures must be suspended more vertically (since human faces tend to sag vertically) whereas the skin must be redraped at a slight tangent - a bivector suspension.
Dr. Haworth simply refers to his method as a modified classic or traditional facelift, in which he employs a 270° skin redrape, customized "high SMAS" technique along with judicious defatting of the jowls and a Z-plasty corset platysmaplasty.Volume Equals Youth
