Throughout our lives, many factors including heredity, gravity, stress, environmental conditions, and sun exposure, can cause the face, our most visible feature, to age right before our eyes. These visible signs of facial aging, including a loss of skin elasticity and firmness, sagging tissues, wrinkles, and sun-damage, can strongly influence how we feel about ourselves and how others see us. Individuals who are energetic and excited about life can appear tired or sad due to the loss of youthful contours in their brow, eyelids, midface, jaw line, and neck.

A Facelift is designed to lift, smooth, firm and reverse the visible signs of facial aging. By correcting sagging facial skin and muscles, removing excess fat, and restoring firmness, a Facelift can create a more youthful, rested, and vibrant appearance. If the signs of aging on your face bother you, an array of non-surgical and surgical treatments including laser and chemical skin resurfacing, injectables and fillers, contour threadlifts, microfat grafting, mini or "MACS" Cheek and Facelift, or a full "SMAS" Facelift, may be the right choice for you. When appropriately selected and applied, facial plastic surgery combined with adjunct treatments can result in a long-lasting, natural, and youthful look.

Neck Lift Surgery

For many people, the neck is the first area to show signs of aging such as weakened neck muscles that cause the appearance of "bands" around the neck. Frequently performed in conjunction with a Mid-Facelift or facial implants, a Neck Lift can improve an aging neck by significantly reducing the appearance of sagging skin under the jaw. Depending on each patient's individual needs, Neck Lift surgical procedures may be performed as an outpatient procedure using either local anesthesia, with deep sedation, or general anesthesia and may take 1.5 to 3 hours. Performed by Dr. Golshani, Corsette Platysmaplasty is an advanced Neck Lift technique, which allows for very significant improvements in neck and jawline contours.

Over time, many patients feel that their eyebrows begin to look droopy, causing them to look sad, depressed, and even angry. Such droopiness or sagging usually occurs in conjunction with other signs of facial aging. A Brow Lift can tighten loose skin, remove excess forehead wrinkles and correct drooping eyelids. The best results are evident when patients' eyebrows are elevated to a natural level. Many patients, therefore, choose to have a Brow Lift in conjunction with upper and/or lower eyelid surgery to achieve optimal results.

As with any other surgical procedure, a Brow Lift is individualized and based on the quality of patients' skin, muscle tone, and bone structure. Dr. Daniel Golshani will take all of these factors into consideration to determine the appropriate procedure or combination of techniques that will create a face that looks more alert and youthful.

Our eyes are one of the first things that other people notice about us. Regarded as one of our most important facial features, the eyes enable us to communicate and connect with others. Unfortunately, due to hereditary factors and signs of aging, the eyes may not be able to communicate as effectively as we mature. If your upper or lower eyelids have puffy, dropping, or excess skin that make you appear sad or tired, cosmetic eyelid surgery may be right for you.

Blepharoplasty, or cosmetic eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin, tissue, and fat that contribute to puffiness and bags in both the upper and lower eyelids. More specifically, Blepharoplasty treats:

* Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or hides the natural contour of the upper eyelid

* Excess skin that hangs down from the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision

* Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the upper eyelids

* Bags under the eyes

* Droopiness of the lower eyelids

* Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid

The benefits of your surgical procedure result in a more youthful, rested and energetic appearance and reveal a smooth, firm contour of the eyelids. Equally important is perhaps the benefits patients feel emotionally. Because of the improvement in the appearance of their eyes, Dr. Golshani's patients often express feeling more alert, energetic, and youthful.

A new surgical technique utilizing excess fat from the patient's own body as a natural, living filler, Microfat Grafting can achieve precise structural changes to the specific areas it is placed. Also known as Liposculpture, this detailed procedure gently removes excess fat from areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, hips or thighs and, after special cleansing and preparation, it is injected into areas of the body that need filling. Microfat Grafting can help to soften wrinkles on the face, smooth out fine lines around the lips, make the lips and cheeks fuller, enhance flat buttocks, create a stronger looking jaw line and improve the appearance of scars. It can create a full, youthful appearance in the cheeks, temples and lips.

Because the adipose fat cells are living components of donor regions, unwanted fat cells can be moved as a graft, resulting in natural and permanent augmentation in 50-75% of cases. In addition, because your own adipose cells are used in this treatment, there is no chance of rejection or allergic reaction. Microfat Grafting is a safe, natural and effective way to improve facial and body contours. Secondarily, a benefit may be liposuction and aesthetic contouring of the donor site.

A strong factor in defining balance and harmony among facial features, the nose is the central and most prominent feature of the face. When the nose is out of proportion with the rest of your facial features, it can negatively influence an individual's self-image and self-confidence. Normal nasal function, with respect to breathing, is also important in maintaining health. A chronically obstructed nasal airway can significantly affect the life-style, sleep cycle, and overall health of an individual.

Whether you have a personal desire to improve your appearance, seek to improve breathing function or are self-conscious about the size or shape of your nose, cosmetic surgery of the nose, or Rhinoplasty, may be right for you. It can improve facial symmetry and balance, straighten a crooked nose, correct for breathing abnormalities, or reduce the size of an overly large nose by changing the shape of the bridge, tip, or nostrils. Functional corrective procedures such as septoplasty, and submucous turbinate resection often complement aesthetic Rhinoplasty to achieve improved function and well-being in the patient.

The first step in achieving the results you desire with nose surgery in Beverly Hills of the nose is a personalized consultation with Dr. Daniel Golshani M.D. For your rhynoplasty in Beverly Hills. Consultations typically include an evaluation of your individual case addressing both aesthetics and nasal airway function, a discussion of your primary concerns, the options available for surgery of the nose including both "Closed" and "Open" Rhinoplasty techniques, the possible outcomes of surgery, risks or potential complications, and the course of treatment that may be most beneficial to you.
