IN PERSON & VIRTUAL
They say that in life, there is no reset button. But when it comes to your facial profile, Dr. Daniel Gould has found one. The reset deep plane facelift in Beverly Hills is a complete facelift and neck lift with a surgery plan built on Dr. Gould’s unique foundation as both a fellowship-trained top plastic surgeon and a Ph.D. in cellular bioengineering.
Before, during, and after the procedure, Dr. Gould makes sure your face and body receive care at the cellular level to encourage healing and reverse the signs of aging up to 15 years. Take charge of your timeline by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Daniel Gould.
With the Reset Deep Plane Facelift, Dr. Daniel Gould set out to re-engineer the facelift process from top to bottom using his experience and advanced teachings from some of the top facial plastic surgeons in the country. He combined the most effective face and neck restoration techniques to create a comprehensive procedure that offers results that are more impressive than the sum of its parts.
The Reset Facelift begins with an anatomic approach. Dr. Gould goes into the deeper foundations of the facial support systems and releases the tension across these structures, simply rebalancing the facial compartments. He then moves these structures back to their native anatomic locations.
In this way, the procedure ensures a natural result as it matches the anatomic foundations of your face. There is no pulling because this is not a face pull… it’s a face lift! Furthermore, since Dr. Gould places no tension across the skin, there are no bad scars. Tension creates a wide or upraised scar: a fundamental principle of plastic surgery. Dr. Gould’s approach releases tension and replaces the native anatomy without tension. This means the incisions heal amazingly well.
In the neck, Dr. Gould takes a similar advanced approach that releases deep tension, removes deep fat, and resets the position of the neck muscles. This “Crevasse” technique is something Dr. Gould has described with close friend and colleague Dr. Ben Talei. In his unique approach, which he has described in textbook chapters and scientific articles, he profoundly refines the neck, achieving the best possible results and creating crisp jawlines in patients that may even be more well-defined than what they had when they were younger!
The Reset Deep Plane Facelift can reset the timeline of your face and neck by up to 15 years. The procedure addresses wrinkles, loose skin, sagging cheeks and jowls, deep creases along the nose and cheeks, crepey skin around the neck, lack of definition around the jaw, “turkey neck,” and other signs of aging around the face, neck, and decolletage for Beverly Hills patients. More importantly, it can do so in a natural way avoiding the classical pulled or tight look of other more common but less anatomic procedures.
During your Beverly Hills consultation, Dr. Gould will review your aesthetic profile and health history to determine if any health problems could prevent you from safely undergoing surgery. If you are in good health, don’t smoke, and suffer from sagging skin along the face or neck, you are a good candidate for Reset Deep Plane Face Tightening. He will also send you for a preoperative health clearance with your doctor or another physician who focuses on preoperative health optimization for surgery.
Dr. Gould also has a specific pre-surgery routine that he requires patients to follow to make sure they optimize their health before surgery, including taking nutritional supplements that boost collagen and promote wound healing. Dr. Gould will review these plans with you in detail during your consultation to ensure no health issues could impact your surgery plan.
The Reset Facelift is more than just a procedure. It also comes with Dr. Gould’s Ph.D-quality before and aftercare guidelines. The aging process is well understood. It involves a combination of ptosis, or sagging of the skin, with involution of the fat of the face and resorption of the bony structures of the facial skeleton. There are also changes in cellular metabolism. With Dr. Gould’s focus on your cellular health at each step in the process, your body will be fully prepared before surgery so that you can recover more quickly and experience more pronounced results after surgery.
Reset facial tightening incorporates a fully personalized deep plane facelift to restore the midsection of the face. By repositioning the skin, fascia, and deep plane musculature, Dr. Gould can eliminate wrinkles, sagging skin, hollows, and deep creases to take years off the appearance of your face without changing the unique characteristics that make you you. This helps move volume back up to the upper face and can help create a more heart-shaped face.
For the neck and jawline, Dr. Gould performs the Crevasse technique. This delivers what he calls a “three-dimensional reset” of the jawline (he wrote a textbook chapter detailing this procedure that aspiring surgeons around the country now use). This 3D reset creates better definition and true depth along the neck and jawline without visible scars when performed as part of a deep plane facelift.
Because of the comprehensive nature of Dr. Gould’s approach, Reset Facelift patients in Beverly Hills also experience a much more comfortable post-surgery experience. The benefits of Dr. Gould’s unique approach to aftercare include reduced fog from anesthesia after surgery, reduced swelling when compared to “typical” aftercare recommendations, faster healing, and a greater overall level of satisfaction with the final results.
As you go through Dr. Gould’s post-surgery recovery plan, you will see the post-surgery swelling go down, and your skin begins to tighten. With each passing day, your results will become more visible. You will see smoother, tighter skin, a defined jawline, a more youthful facial shape, and depth along the neck. While even a Reset Facelift will not stop your skin from aging, it will turn back the clock between ten and 15 years. Further treatments and proper skin maintenance can further prolong the rejuvenating effects.

You are kept quite comfortable during surgery as you are under general anesthesia. The next day, Dr. Gould will have you undergo a hyperbaric treatment that delivers oxygen to your cells and have you receive a lymphatic massage to thwart additional swelling after surgery. Dr. Gould’s unique post-surgical treatments aid in rapid recovery to reduce pain and discomfort after surgery.
The two most common side effects from a facelift include developing a hematoma—which is a build-up of blood under the skin and usually results from too much activity. Dr. Gould can drain the excess fluid with a syringe if this happens. The second common side effect is an infection at the incision sites. You will receive post-treatment instructions for caring for your incisions, including how to keep your face clean for optimal results. There are extremely rare risks of nerve injury, which is less than 0.9% in this technique. More commonly, swelling in the face and the muscles can interfere with muscle function and make your smile appear heavy for a few weeks as swelling subsides.
A facelift is a highly customized surgery. Therefore, the cost of the procedure will differ with each patient. During your consultation, Dr. Gould spends significant time listening to your facial and skin concerns, discussing your options, assessing and taking photos as needed, and devising a surgical treatment plan to meet your needs. The cost of your outpatient facelift surgery is discussed immediately after the consultation with Dr. Gould’s coordinator.
A rhytidectomy (face lift) is a cosmetic facial rejuvenation procedure and is not covered by medical insurance. However, we offer payment and financing options for your convenience.
Each procedure targets the lower portion of your face to correct sagging skin, jowls, and volume loss in your cheeks. The deep plane facelift is a specialized approach that targets the deeper structures and resets the foundation of your facial fascia or connective tissue. Traditional facelifts pull that fascia or remove some of it, or more commonly, they simply tighten it in a vector and remove skin. Studies have shown a deep plane may have more longevity, but Dr. Gould does it because it looks more natural and less pulled or odd. It makes sense that redraping the fascia is better in concept than tightening it externally. These same concepts apply to the neck, and the Crevasse technique also improves your neck look.
During your consultation, Dr. Gould will discuss non-surgical options with you for you to consider—these include RF treatments, Morpheus8, Profound, FaceTite, as well as dermal fillers.
Your surgery is an outpatient procedure, which means you can return and recover at home with a home nurse, or you may choose to stay overnight in an aftercare facility to be available for an appointment the next day. In either case, you will need someone to drive you home and help you for the first 24-48 hours after surgery.
