The facelift is one of the most popular procedures among Dr. Schwartz’s patients – primarily due to his ability to accomplish impeccable, extremely natural results.
An overview of a facelift
To prepare you for your Thousand Oaks facelift, Dr. Schwartz will thoroughly explain what you can expect from the procedure during your initial consultation. During that time, he will carefully evaluate your unique needs and make recommendations that will ensure an optimal outcome.
To begin your actual surgery, one of our board certified anesthesiologists will administer general anesthesia to ensure your total comfort and safety. As he specializes in limited incision facelift surgery, Dr. Schwartz will often create substantially smaller incisions than are typically used with a traditional facelift – allowing for a more natural result and a quicker recovery time. Through those openings, Dr. Schwartz will carefully tighten the underlying muscles, targeting unwanted fat, re-contour the face and treat excess sagging skin. Once your smoother and youthful face has been restored, he will expertly close the incisions to ensure the resulting scars are virtually imperceptible.
In many cases, facelift surgery is combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures, including brow and eyelid surgery, fat grafting, and laser skin resurfacing. Each patient’s procedures are customized to produce the ideal results, as gone over during their consultation in Dr. Schwartz's Thousand Oaks office.
