A Successful facial plastic surgery cam make you look young just like the one you wanted.
Q. What is a Facelift Surgery ?
Face lift surgery is a surgical procedure designed to smooth the loose skin on the facial skin, jowls, and neck in both the men and women. A facelift technically known as rhytidectomy can't stop the aging process. But it can do is improving the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping the skin of your face and neck. A facelift can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping.
Q. Who goes for a facelift ?
Persons with the following features go for a facelift : -
- Persons with deep lines or foldsrunning from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth
- People with loss of a well-defined jawline
- Ones with deep wrinkles in the cheeks
- Persons with loose skin, wrinkles, and excess fat in the neck.
In this procedure, underlying tissues are tightened, excess fat is removed, and the skin is gracefully re-draped for a natural and more youthful appearance.
Q. How is a Face-lift performed ?
The surgeon makes a vertical incision from the temples to the upper part of the ears. This incision, which is usually made behind the hair-growth line so that the resulting scar will be concealed, is the one used in upper or temporal lift surgery. In mid lift surgery (cheeks), the same temporal incision we just described extends further down in front of the ears and follows their natural outline to the back (periauricular line).
By means of this incision, the surgeon separates the muscle and the skin from the face, he tightens them and replaces them further up to achieve a more youthful look. He cuts the excess skin and muscle and sutures. In order to rejuvenate lower areas of the face, such as the outline of the jaw, it is necessary to perform neck lift surgery. In order to perform the neck lift, the surgeon makes an incision that has two sections: the first one is vertical and extends behind each ear (retroauricular), and the second one is horizontal and extends about 2 inches (5 cm) along the hair-growth line on the back of the neck (mastoid).
In some cases it may be necessary to make a small incision under the chin and/or a liposuction of the double chin to obtain better results. By means of these incisions, the surgeon separates the muscle and the skin from the neck, he tightens them and replaces them further up to achieve a more youthful look. He cuts the excess skin and muscle and sutures.
Local anesthesia and complementary sedation, or general anesthesia, according to the complexity of the case.
Length of surgery
Between 90 minutes and 2 hours if it is partial. Between 3 and 4 hours if it is complete.
No hospitalization is required if the surgery is performed with local anesthesia. If it was performed with general anesthesia, you will be hospitalized for one day or one night.
Face lifts help to boost up your self esteem and help to create a much younger looking you. The face lift operation takes place for two to three hours and drastically improves facial appearance by doing away with fine lines and loose facial skin.
Recovery time following face lift surgery varies. Many patients return to work after 3 weeks after their face lift. Most women can disguise the effects of face lift surgery with make up after 10-14 days.
Sometimes the facelift can cause hamper to the facial nerves which can be dangerous. The excessive bleeding and scars can be seen in the facial skin. To avoid theses you should consult doctors before and after your surgery.
Temporary swelling, dryness in the skin, numbness, can be felt. For men the beard-growing area is repositioned or shifted. You can also feel the muscle tightening and light injuries in the earlier days but that cures with the after surgery medicines and proper care of the skin
