Also known as Rhytidectomy, a face lift is a surgical procedure that is aimed at reducing wrinkles, thus eliminating signs of ageing. The procedure also tightens sagging skin along the cheeks and the skin, giving you a younger looking skin. This procedure is suitable for both men and women, and are popular for both cosmetic and aesthetic reason. Facelift is also a standard procedure in reconstruction surgeries, especially when removal of a tumor or extra growth from the face is involved.
The usual process
The most common method of facelift surgery involves making an incision from the temple and flowing down and behind the ears, before meeting at the other end of the hair line. In case of a sagging jaw line, an incision will be made under the chin to correct this. Once the incisions are made, the skin is lifted and pulled back and the overlapping excess skin is trimmed away.
Once this is done, excess fat is removed, the muscle is tightened and the skin is re-stitched along the cut lines. Once the surgery is completed, the patient is expected to stay in the hospital for atleast a day, so that the doctors can monitor the healing progress and make sure that there are no further complications.
Modern face lifts are performed using keyhole surgeries, where small incisions are made on the skin and the procedure is completed using an endoscope to remove excess fat and offer skin lifts. This reduces chances of scars and also reduces healing time.
Pre surgery preparation
Like all surgeries, a face lift too requires a fair degree of preparation. You need to take all the necessary pre-surgery precautions in order to minimize any chances of complications.
