Typically, women come to mirror more than ten times a day. As the time passes, many of them consider making a facelift surgery and return back to the youth.
Facelift plastic surgery is a complex surgical operation aimed at correcting age-related changes in the skin and deeper structures of the face (muscles, subcutaneous fat), and neck. It is important to understand that during cosmetic surgery facelift you may have all areas of the face or only one of them treated. These areas are: top (forehead), middle (eyes, nostrils) and lower (chin). If you have all areas lifted simultaneously it is called circular facelift, and if the areas are treated separately it is called partial facelift – for example: brow lift procedure, midface lift surgery, chin lift plastic surgery, lower face lift procedure and neck lift procedure.
You may consider facelift surgery procedure if you have:
The circular face lift
Typically, doctors advise to make a circular facelift only people aged 40 to 60 years. If wrinkles and other middle-age signs are not too distinct, the patient may be advised to do endoscopic facelift. During endoscopic facelift less incisions are made.
In some cases, your doctor may combine facelifting surgery with other types of surgery on face: chin liposuction, plastic contour face lipofilling, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and installation of facial implants.
How is the operation of face lift going on
Before making a face surgery the doctor will advise you to undergo medical examination and pass tests to exclude cardiovascular disease, allergies to medications. Moreover, at this stage, it is advisable to stop smoking and take pills (including contraceptives and food additives). Before the operation, it is desirable to wash your hair thoroughly.
Plastic surgery for face is done under general anesthesia, rarely under local one (if it is only for the individual face areas). The average duration of facelift surgery is 5 hours. Incisions are made in the head, covered with hair – and hair is not removed.
What happens after facial plastic surgery
The patient should be in a hospital for the first three days after the face lift. Like after most operations, after the face lift plastic surgery patient is prescribed antibiotics and painkillers. You should be prepared to have some bruises and swelling (especially on the third day after surgery). Stitches are removed in 5-7 days, then in a day or two you can use makeup and wash your hair.
But doctors advise to return to work no sooner than two to three weeks after a successful face lifting operation. It is important to remember that the result is not instantaneous – your face will look younger only in 2-2,5 months.
Results of face plastic surgery
After having facelift you’ll get younger face without wrinkles, with right face oval, without excess skin. The result of plastic surgery for face usually lasts for several years.
The cost of facelift depends on the type of face lift procedure – whether it is whole face lifting surgery or only partial face lift. It is also important to take into account the status of a surgeon considering the facelift cost.
