Face lift

Face Lifting

As you age, gravity, sun exposure and the stresses of daily life take their toll on your faces and necks. Deep creases appear, the jaw slackens, and the neck develops loose folds. Facelift corrects these signs of aging by tightening the fascia, trimming excess skin, giving your face a fresh and youthful look.

What facelift can do for you?

Facelift, rejuvenates the face and neck. Facelifts are most effective for patients who want to correct:

  • Midface sagging
  • Creases under the eyes
  • Creases between the nose and mouth
  • Sagging areas of fat
  • Loose skin and fat in the chin and jaw

What facelift surgery can't do?

Facelift is a restorative surgery, and cannot change your fundamental appearance or stop the aging process.

A facelift can only be performed surgically nonsurgical rejuvenation treatments cannot achieve the same results.

Further, facelift will not rejuvenate the brow, eyelids or nose.

Are you a candidate for facelift?

The best candidates are:

  • Men or women whose skin has begun to sag but has some elasticity
  • Have a good general health
  • Do not smoke or smoking should be completely stopped at least a few weeks before a facelift, and not restarted for a week or more after the facelift surgery.
  • Have realistic expectations from the surgery
  • Are considering a facelift for personal reasons, not because of pressure for someone else

What to expect with facelift?

Facelift are typically done under general anesthesia. The way a facelift is performed differs depending on the surgeon, the patient’s facial structure and the extent of correction desired.

After your facelift the incisions will be wrapped in bandages, drainage tubes may be placed in the area. The tubes will be taken out in two days. If any surgical clips are used to hold the incisions, they will be removed one week after the facelift along with the stitches.

At first, you may experience swelling, numbness, bruising, and a feeling of tightness in the face and neck. Your face may look uneven and your facial muscles may feel stiff. Mostly these usually resolve within weeks, and returns to normal within a few months. Scars become less red, raised or itchy in time.

You should be gentle with your skin and hair during the recovery period. Men may need to shave behind the neck and ears where beard-growing skin will be moved.
