If you’re ready to be thrilled with what you see in the mirror each morning and haven’t been lately because of wrinkles, sagging, and an aged appearance, facelift surgery may be the answer for you. To achieve a natural-looking facelift that enhances your features and is simply a more refreshed you, it’s important to choose a surgeon who possesses not only excellent technical skill but a fine-tuned eye for artistry.
Dr. William Harris is AAFPRS fellowship-trained, board-certified, and specializes in facial plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery. In addition to his technical qualifications, Dr. Harris has a natural artistic talent and passion, which lends greatly to his techniques and approaches when it comes to facelifts. He strives to deliver the best facelift Beverly Hills has to offer. His goal is not to alter and change, but to enhance the features for a natural-looking end result.
A facelift is a cosmetic facial plastic surgery procedure that reduces the appearance of aging in the face, jawline, and neck areas.
An expertly performed facelift can address sagging skin, loss of volume in the cheeks or temples, loss of facial tone, deep wrinkles, fine lines, jowls, and other signs of aging. As a facial plastic surgeon will make incisions near the ears, temples, and sometimes a very small incision under the chin in order to naturally restore the underlying tissue structures in the face to a more youthful position as well as addressing skin laxity.
Both men and women commonly seek out a facelift surgery to reverse the signs of aging in their face and see a younger version of themselves.
Anyone who has moderate to severe skin laxity, deep wrinkles, loss of volume in the cheeks, reduced jawline definition, or other cosmetic concerns related to aging are good candidates. It’s important for any Beverly Hills facelift patients to be in generally good health, not have chronic conditions that could hinder healing. Smoking cessation is also strongly advised.
During your one on one consultation with Dr. Harris, he will take his time to get to know you, your aesthetic goals, and your specific reasons for interest in undergoing a facelift. He wants to ensure that each patient receives fully personalized care and will go into detail with you about any questions or concerns you might have. Prior to your surgery, we will ask that you stop taking certain medications and supplements for a couple of weeks.
Facelift surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and takes about four to five hours in an outpatient setting. Discreet and precise incisions will be made near the ears and close to the hairline.
In some cases, a very small incision will also be made under the chin. Next, the underlying tissues will be repositioned while avoiding any tension or “pulled” look for a natural lifted result. The skin will also be repositioned artfully to give a naturally youthful look.
After your facelift procedure, your face may feel tight, heavy, or itchy, but the pain is usually minimal and serious pain is rare.
Typically after a few days, these initial side effects will ease, and you will start to feel more normal. Many patients see great results within just a few weeks, but it typically takes three to four months to see optimal, final improvements.
Thanks to the skillset and dedication of Dr. Harris, a fully accredited private surgery center, and a mindset of surgical excellence and the highest level of patient care, Harris Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics is unmatched in quality.
Dr. Harris believes the key to a flawless cosmetic facial procedure is to revitalize your natural features, not reimagine them.

With a skilled surgeon, there is very little risk with the procedure. In rare cases, complications could include bleeding, infection, or nerve damage.
In most cases, facelift patients enjoy the results for 10 to 15 years, but natural aging continues to occur and they are not permanent.
The majority of facelift patients are between their 40s and 60s, but there is no specific age requirement as long as signs of aging are present and of concern and a lift would offer benefit to the patient.
