Erase signs of aging from your face
Wrinkles, dropping jowls, and slackening of skin are all results of aging and exposure to the sun. Facelift is most effective for removing sag from under the chin and wrinkles from the cheeks.
The procedure is most successful for healthy individuals with good remaining skin elasticity, though improvements can be made in most people. A facelift can erase signs of aging from the face creating a tighter, firmer and more youthful look.
Usually it's performed under a local anaesthetic. Incisions start at the temples and run down the hairline, in front of the ear, continuing backwards into the lower scalp. These incisions allow the surgeon access to the skin of the face and neck, which is lifted from the underlying tissue. Fat is removed and muscles and tendons strengthened depending on the patient and the desired result. The skin is resettled over the adjusted fat and muscle and excess skin removed at the incision edges.
The procedure varies depending on the individual and the work that is required: a standard length for the operation is from 2 to 3 hours.
Facelifts are often extensive operations. Following the procedure there may be considerable discomfort and swelling for a few days, with tubes being left in place to aid drainage from the areas operated upon. Bandages may remain in place for 1 week, during this time the head should be kept elevated, as much as possible, to reduce inflammation and swelling. Stitches are usually removed at the end of the first week. Most swelling and discomfort will have subsided after 2 weeks to a month. Full recovery to normal feeling may take up to 6 months.
After surgery blood may gather in areas operated upon though these can be drained subsequently. There is a danger of damage to the nerves of the face causing loss of feeling: such damage is usually only temporary. Infection is a risk as it is with all invasive surgery.
