DEFINE Lift in Beverly Hills, CA

Definition Delivered

If you're considering a facelift, you understand that the ultimate goal is to see a younger, refreshed version of yourself, not to see a facelift. That's why a technique that provides incredibly natural-looking results and also incorporates improvements from the hairline down to the neck is ideal. Our Beverly Hills DEFINE Lift does this and can give you exactly what you want to see in that mirror.

DEFINE Lift at Plastic Surgery Institute

At Plastic Surgery Institute in Beverly Hills, Dr. Ritu Chopra is committed to providing his patients with the most natural-looking facelift possible using the DEFINE Lift technique. Along with Dr. Chopra, the entire staff at PSI is passionate about patient care, unmatched results, and an overall outstanding experience.

What is a DEFINE Lift?

The DEFINE Lift is a specialized facelift designed by Dr. Chopra that includes multiple procedures and the most cutting-edge techniques to produce incredibly natural-looking results. DEFINE is an acronym for:

  • D-eep plane
  • E-xtended
  • F-acelift
  • I-ncluding
  • N-eck and
  • E-levation of brows

By using the superior method of the deep plane facelift combined with other techniques for facial rejuvenation, the result is totally comprehensive and transformative while still remaining exquisitely natural in appearance.

Extended Deep Plane Facelift

The deep plane facelift adjusts and lifts the face on a deep level, and the muscles, tissues, and skin are all repositioned together so that instead of a tight-skin appearance, the result is a natural, refreshed look. While a standard deep plane addresses primarily the midface, cheeks, and jowls, the extended deep plane can also effectively address aging lower in the neck.

Neck Lift

As part of the DEFINE procedure, the neck lift can smooth wrinkles, eliminate excess skin, and reduce turkey neck or banding. Typically, incisions are made under the chin, near the ears, and near the hairline to achieve this result.

Brow Lift

The brow lift is included with the DEFINE technique to provide lift, wrinkle reduction, and smoothing in the forehead and near the eyes. This part of the procedure is typically performed by making incisions very close to the hairline above the forehead.

Benefits of a DEFINE Lift

With the DEFINE Lift Beverly Hills patients are offered a truly comprehensive, top-to-bottom facial rejuvenation option and includes benefits like:

  • Firmer, tighter skin and muscle structure
  • Defined jawline
  • Smoothed wrinkles and fine lines throughout the face
  • Brighter, lifted eye look
  • Younger, more vibrant appearance
  • Single recovery period

DEFINE Lift Candidates

Ideal candidates for this procedure are those with significant wrinkles, skin laxity, and other prominent signs of aging in the face and neck.

Consultation and Preparation

During your consultation, Dr. Chopra and his team will take the time to get to know you, discuss your health history, and talk about your specific aesthetic goals. They will also provide you with a detailed treatment plan and provide specifics on any necessary preparation required before surgery.


As one of the most prolific deep plane facelift surgeons in the country, Dr. Chopra is incredibly passionate about every technical detail and delivering only the best patient care. With this in mind, the DEFINE Lift procedure is performed under general anesthesia and typically takes about four to six hours to complete.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Recovery time will depend on the patient, but in most cases, it takes about two to three weeks for full recovery, and the healing process will continue for a few months. Optimal results may take up to a year, and many patients see great results for 10 to 15 years. To help speed recovery, we partner with post-surgical recovery centers like Aura After Care and Immortelle Med Healthcare Group to bring you the highest quality of care for your recovery process.

DEFINE Lift Frequently Asked Questions

Since this procedure is performed under general anesthesia, you will need someone to drive you home as well as stay with you for about 24 hours.

The primary recovery after this surgery is about two to three weeks, depending on the patient. While recovery is usually longer than after a standard facelift, this combination of procedures means only one recovery period instead of the potential for multiple if these surgeries were to be performed separately.

Serious risks with this procedure are rare but could include bleeding, infection, or numbness.

In many cases, our patients see results that last as long as 10 to 15 years, especially with great skincare. Dr. Chopra also provides three sessions of Morpheus8 with the laser specifically targeted for tone and texture and a skincare consultation with medical-grade skincare products to help extend your results.

The cost of a DEFINE Lift in Beverly Hills will depend on the scope of surgery needed to achieve optimal results for you.
