LOS ANGELES & BEVERLY HILLS
Rediscover a youthful, masculine look with a Facelift for Men in LA by Dr. Ariel Ourian. Specifically tailored for men, this procedure lifts and rejuvenates, maintaining your natural rugged charm while turning back the clock.
Who is a good candidate for Facelift?
Men are often good candidates for a facelift if they have one or more of the following concerns:
- Moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles around cheeks, nose, mouth and neck
- Sagging of the skin and tissues in the cheeks
- Loss of volume and hollowing of the cheeks
- Sagging of skin around the jawline that create jowls
- Generalized facial descent
- Loose and poorly contoured neck, resulting in a “double chin” or “turkey neck”
A facelift addresses loose skin and wrinkles in the midface, neck and jawline, meaning that it does not address concerns in the eye area or forehead. Men concerned about wrinkles around the eyes or forehead should consider procedures such as browlift, blepharoplasty, or Botox injections, which can be paired with a facelift for many patients.
Before pursuing a facelift, candidates should be generally healthy overall. Patients shouldn’t smoke or take blood-thinning medication. Dr. Ourian, a top Beverly Hills male facelift surgeon, will determine if a facelift is your best option during your consultation.
How is a Beverly Hills Men’s Facelift performed?
Dr. Ourian’s signature Beverly Hills facelift for men is usually performed under general anesthesia, but some patients may be candidates for the procedure to be performed under sedation. Incisions are made in front of and behind the ears, with special care taken to ensure scars are inconspicuous within the hairline or natural contours of the face. Dr. Ourian will determine the proper incision technique for each patient on a case-by-case basis. As needed, incisions may be made under the chin to perform a neck lift. Commonly, men are more concerned about sagging skin near the jawline and neck than wrinkles throughout the face compared to women, so utilizing neck lift techniques is often necessary.
Once incisions have been made, the tissues of the face are repositioned for a more youthful, elevated look. Dr. Ourian will use one of several techniques to achieve this, including a deep plane facelift approach or an SMAS facelift. Any excess skin will be removed, and when the tissues have been repositioned, the skin will be re-draped over the face. Upon completing these steps, the incisions will be closed.

What Procedures Can I Combine with a Facelift for Men?
A facelift will address signs of aging in the midface, but most patients seeking a male facelift in Los Angeles are concerned about aging signs in other areas. These patients can pair their facelift with other procedures, such as a brow lift or blepharoplasty. These reduce forehead lines, crow’s feet, or sagging eyelids for a pleasant, younger, and more awake look. Botox injections are a nonsurgical option for men who want to reduce lines around the eyes or forehead and have less loose or sagging skin in the area.
How Much Does a Male Facelift in Beverly Hills Cost?

In the Los Angeles area, a facelift usually ranges between $10,000 and $25,000. Pairing your facelift with additional procedures will result in a higher overall cost.
