Face Lift

*Recovery times / Results May Vary

Facial aging 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, the folds deepen. 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 full facelift surgery, or a Rhytidectomy, has become the third most desired facial plastic surgical procedure.

We perform facelift surgeries (rhytidectomy) in Bangkok, Thailand that include neck lifts. Schedule an appointment with a surgeon to discuss all the aspects of your facelift, including expected results, recovery time, and the cost of such a procedure in Bangkok.

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 facelift surgery if you have any of the following:

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.

After a face and neck lift, patients should see a significant improvement in the forehead, temporal area, anterior (mid-face), and lower face and neck.

What is Facelift ?

Facelift surgery is a procedure that reduces excess skin and lifts and tightens the remaining skin on areas of the face that are prone to sagging and drooping. The procedure elevates and redrapes the skin of the face and tightens the underlying muscle (the platysma muscle). Excess fat is generally removed as well. Although some patients may be candidates for liposuction in the neck or a neck lift alone, 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.

What is a Necklift?

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. The neck lift also helps to tighten the skin of the face. The overall effect of both a face and neck lift is a reduction of the wrinkles, sagging and jowls, and a younger looking patient.

Result and Follow-up

The surgery time depends on the number or areas to be treated, but ranges from 1 to 4 hours. The patient will be placed under general anesthesia during the rhytidectomy. A lab check-up in Bangkok is also required before the surgery.

After the facelift surgery, discomfort can be reduced by pain medication, but if there is any severe discomfort the patient should inform the surgeon. There will be numbness of the skin around the surgery area, but this should disappear within 2 – 4 months.
