Facelift in Tarzana

Facelift - Marc Cohen M.D, Tarzana Surgeon


As we age, UV exposure, gravity, environmental factors, and stressful situations take a toll on your face and neck, causing the facial muscles to gradually slacken and the facial skin to become looser and less elastic. Over time, folds, lines, and fat deposits begin to appear.

A facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to counteract the signs of aging and make the skin on your face tighter and smoother. This is usually achieved by removing fat, tightening underlying muscles, and trimming excess skin. The result is a natural, youthful, and fresher look that can shed 10-15 years in your appearance.

What to expect

A facelift is done under general anesthesia, and typically requires two night's stay in the hospital.

The procedure is customized for each patient to create a harmonious and attractive look through the combination of volume restoration and judicious tightening. The operation involves re-supporting the underlying facial muscles and removing excess skin to give you a smoother and firmer facial appearance.

Recovery typically takes about 10 days, with most patients resuming normal activities two weeks after the procedure.

Who is the right candidate for a facial lift?

Generally, facelift patients are expected to have completed a weight loss program before turning to a facelift operation. Dr. Cohen may recommend facelift surgery to improve:

  • Deep creases beside your mouth
  • A sagging jawline
  • A blunted neck line
  • Your overall facial appearance for a youthful look
