Over the past few years, the term facelift surgery has become a topic of increased
interest and discussion. The cumulative effects of time, gravity and
heredity show on any face. The facelift surgery itself, also known
as rhytidectomy, is performed to correct double chins and sagging jowls.
The modern-day, long-lasting facelift operation, involves the permanent
removal of undesirable accumulations of fat. As well, sagging muscles
and connective tissue are repositioned and re-supported.
Because excess fat is now removed in the operation, patients no longer
need to lose weight before surgery. In fact, for people who previously
had chubby cheeks or a fat neck, one of the benefits of facelift surgery
is an apparent loss of weight following surgery. The overall effect
is a younger, fresher and more vibrant (yet natural) appearance.
Often lumped under the term facelift are a group of operations designed
to rejuvenate faces that show signs of aging. These include blepharoplasty
(eyelid surgery), brow and forehead lift, mid-face lift, and skin resurfacing,
Improves sagging facial skin, a slack jaw, and loose neck skin by removing
excess fat, tightening muscles, and redraping skin. Most patients who
desire a facelift are men and women over 40 years old, seeking to remove
the most visible signs of aging.
Temporary bruising, swelling, numbness and tenderness of skin. Tight
feeling and dry skin. Men will permanently have to shave behind ears,
due to the repositioning of beard-growing skin.
Back to work: 10 to 14 days. Avoiding strenuous activity: 2 weeks
or more. Bruising: 2 to 3 weeks. Facelift patients should avoid alcohol,
steam baths and saunas for several months. Must limit exposure to sun
for several months as well.
Infection, bleeding. Poor healing and excessive scarring. Asymmetry
or change in hairline. Injury to facial nerves (usually temporary but
may be permanent.
Usually lasts 5 to 10 years.
(Placement of the incisions and the sequence of events depend on a
patient's facial structure and the surgeon's technique) Generally,
incisions begin above the hairline at the temples, extending in a natural
line in front of the ear, and continues behind the earlobe to the lower
scalp. The surgeon separates the skin from the fat and muscle below,
trimming or suctioning fat from around the neck to improve the contour.
He or she then tightens the underlying muscle and membrane, pulling
the skin back, and then removes the excess.
