What exactly is facelift surgery?

The face lift surgery is also termed as rhytidectomy, and thus the ultimate goal of this procedure is to give the patient a youthful appearance. The procedure involves reshaping the lower part of the face by eliminating the excess skin. 

Rhytidectomy is a procedure that tightens the skin under the face or lower part of the face, which is loose, hanging and so is now termed as jowls. Further, the procedure is performed to remove excess skin and fat near the chin and neck.

What Facelift Surgery Can Do/ Can’t Do

  • Remove jowls.
  • Improve face contour.
  • Enhance confidence.


  • Stop future aging.
  • Alter face shape.

In many patients Pinch Blepharpolasty is Needed

On lifting the skin sometimes, some skin accumulated under the lower eyelid. in this situation, jsut the extra skin is removed. the extra skin to be removed is assessed with a pinch, hence it is called the pinch blepharoplasty. the skin incision is closed with 5.0 nylon, and stiches are removed after 5 days

Understanding Facelift Surgery

It’s also vital to have a full body check-up to see if the patient is a good candidate for surgery. It’s also crucial to dispel any preconceived notions regarding the procedure. To avoid any future mishaps, you should also consume any over-the-counter remedies. If you’re taking aspirin, you should stop taking it right away. It is also critical to stop smoking and drinking alcohol before surgery. This might lead to difficulties during the rehabilitation process.

Once after the procedure, you will be sent home with the dressings and the procedure might get a week or two to heal. If the sutures are not absorbable then you might have to meet the doctor to get them removed. You might expect some bruising and swelling and so you are advised not to take any intense workouts or any adverse reactions.

Let us shed some light on the negative effects of this cosmetic surgery, since they are the same as those of any other cosmetic operation. The surgery has no long-term repercussions. Aging and gravity might have an impact on the consequences. The patient may have numbness around the surgical region as a result of nerve injury. Skin discoloration may also develop as a result of the procedure. An allergic response to prescription drugs might also develop in certain people. Some individuals might have extended scarring following surgery, which is undesirable and can make the overall appearance appear unappealing. Prolonged swelling is also a possibility.
