As a person gets older, the tissues and the skin lose elasticity. This results in the loosening of the skin and development of the wrinkles. A facelift is a surgical procedure that intends to tighten facial tissues, smoothing out folds or wrinkles, and removing excess skin.
A facelift surgery only focuses on the bottom two-thirds of the face and sometimes the neck.
How is that a facelift works?
During the face lift surgery, the surgeon repositions fat and tissue under the skin to:
helping in smoothening out the creases on the face
removing the excess skin that is responsible for “jowls”
lifting and tightening of the facial skin.
How is face lift surgery performed?
Facelifts vary depending on the desired results. An incision is made in the hairline near the temple region of the face. The incision goes in front of the ear, down in front of and hugging the earlobe, then back to the lower scalp behind the ears.
Fat and excess skin might be removed or repositioned from the face. The underlying muscles and connective tissues are redistributed and tightened. If there’s minimal skin sagging, a “mini” face lift may be done. This, however, involves shorter incisions.
If a person wants to get a neck lift too, then it is performed by removing excess skin and fat. The skin surrounding the neck is tightened and pulled back and hence can get rid of the double chin.
The patient will often have a surgical drainage tube after surgery as well as bandages wrapping around the face.
There are various risks associated with a face lift surgery such as-
Anesthesia risks (which are always associated with any type of surgery)
bleeding or hemorrhage
infection/sepsis due to the usage of non sterilized equipment
pain or scarring
Loss of hair where the incision is done
problems associated with the wound healing and repair
What should a person expect after face lift surgery?
Post-surgery, the doctor will likely suggest medications to subside the pain. The person may or may not have pain or discomfort besides inflammation, reddening, and formation of contusion. Everything this is all the way normal.
The surgeon will give the patient some instructions on when to and how to remove the dressings or drains and when to make a follow-up appointment.
Once the swelling goes down, you’ll be able to see the difference in how you look. As far as your skin “feeling” normal, this usually takes several months.
One should give oneself for about two weeks before getting back to a normal level of daily activity. If one wants to perform a more strenuous activity, like exercise, one should wait for about four weeks. Still, the tolerance level of every person is very different, so one should always consult his/her doctor to get the best treatment for oneself.
To get a facelift surgery done, one should always consult a well-renowned plastic surgeon.
