Facelift surgery is being used for improving the visible signs of aging in the face and neck such as relaxation of the skin of face which cause sagging and deepened he fold lines between nose and corner of mouth.
The best age to go for facelift is in the age of 40 to 60 when the signs of aging begins to be prevalent. At this age deep lines, wrinkles, fine lines sagging skin can be corrected by different surgical and non surgical techniques.
You should go for facelift surgery when you notice skin loss due to elasticity and loss of facial volume which result in jowls on lower face deep wrinkles and loose skin on the neck region. Some people are bothered by these aging signs so face lift is the best solution for this.
Facelift surgery will provide you the dramatic result up to 15 years after the procedure. This procedure is less invasive like mini facelifts or has given moderate results that last from two to six years.
Most patients experience some discomfort after surgery but medications are given for relieving tenderness. Bruising and swelling is there after two days and they can even persists for few days.
Patients with a mild degree of jowling and sagging skin are often good candidates for a mini-facelift. This procedure is less invasive that allows a cosmetic surgeon to tighten deep facial tissues through shorter incisions, typically located along the hairline above each ear and/or in the natural creases surrounding the ear. These incisions are used to lift structural tissues around the cheeks, thereby refining the jawline, and rejuvenating a “tired” appearance.
A standard or “traditional” facelift addresses the problem of aging which is in advanced stage around the mid-face and neck. It is a more extensive surgery requiring more recovery time and the results are more dramatic. Through incisions located just behind the hairline, starting near the temples, and around the front of the ear, hidden in the natural folds, a cosmetic surgeon can reach the deeper tissues beneath the skin and reposition them and remove excess skin to smooth creases, eliminate jowling and sagging skin under the chin, and restore a naturally youthful contour to the face and neck.
Bruising and swelling are normal after a facelift, and will be at their peak about 2 days after surgery. After that, bruising and swelling will gradually get better, and should be difficult to notice after about 10 to 14 days. Even so, many patients feel comfortable going out in public about a week or so after their procedures.
You may feel some tightness and numbness on your face and neck. This tightness generally resolves within two months.
Keep ice on your face and neck, Avoid bending over for one week and sleep with the head of your bed elevated for 1-2 weeks.
It is recommended to wear the support strap for 4 weeks.
Recovery after surgery takes around 2 weeks and you have to restrict your physical activity and you can resume your normal activity after 4 weeks. Sutures are removed after 5 to 10 days.
The result after facelift surgery will be visible after one month of the surgery and you will get the best result at 6 months.
Possible complications of the surgery includes nerve injury, infection and reaction to anaesthesia, hematoma and scar formation.
As you get into your routine after a facelift, it’s especially important to keep your face protected from the sun. You will be more vulnerable to sunburn for several weeks after surgery, plus staying out of the sun will help scars heal as inconspicuously as possible. Wear a wide-brimmed hat and apply sunscreen regularly.
Maintaining a healthy, stable weight is important as significant weight fluctuations can cause skin to stretch out again. You should also adopt a consistent, quality skin care regimen to keep your skin healthy and protected from unnecessary aging.
