face lift

(Rhytidectomy)
*Recovery times / Results May Vary
 

Aging of the face is inevitable, over time the skin begins to loosen on the face and neck. Crow’s feet appear at the corners of the eyes. Fine forehead lines become creases and then, gradually, deeper folds. The jawline softens into jowls, and beneath the chin, another chin or vertical folds appear at the front of the neck. Heredity, personal habits, the pull of gravity, and sun exposure contribute to the aging of the face. As the aging population grows, it is obvious why Rhytidectomy has become the third most desired facial plastic surgical procedure.


Facelifts are most commonly performed on patients in the 40-60 age range. However, the procedure can produce good results for people in their 60s, 70s and 80s as well. You may be a good candidate for a facelift if you have any of the following types of conditions:

1. A deep line that runs from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth known as the “nasolabial fold”
2. Loss of a well-defined jawline – Deep wrinkles in the cheeks and sagging skin near the cheekbones known as jowls
3. Loose skin, wrinkles, or excess fatty tissue in the neck.
 

There are 5 specific parts for the Facial and Neck surgery that the patient should be concerned which are Forehead, Temporal area, Anterior (Mid-Face) ,Lower Face and Neck . These 5 areas can be lifted by surgical procedures.

 
What is Facelift ?

Like the facelift, a neck lift elevates and redrapes the skin of the neck and tightens the underlying muscle (the platysma muscle). Excess fat is generally removed as well. Some patients may be candidates for a neck lift alone; some may even be candidates for liposuction alone to the neck. However, most patients who have enough droop or laxity (looseness) to require a neck lift also require a facelift to tighten the tissues of the neck.

Result and Follow up

The surgery time is varied to the numbers of the concerned areas, approximately from 1 to 4 hours. The patient will need to undergo general anesthesia during the operation. Lab Check-up is required to the patient before the surgery.

Scar is almost invisible because incision will be done above hairline following down the natural line in front of ears and curve behind the ear lobe along the crease of the ear and into or along the lower scalp.

Mostly discomforts can reduce by pain medication but if there is any unusual happen patient should tell to surgeon in time. There will be numbness on skin around surgery area but disappear by 2 – 4 weeks. 

Aftercare is important and final result takes time for fully 2 weeks.
