What Is a Facelift?
Years of sun exposure, stress, gravity, and significant weight loss can certainly take a toll on the face — the most visible part of the body. There is little we can do to hide deep creases, stubborn wrinkles, fatty deposits, or neck folds, but a facelift can help to reduce or reverse such visible signs of aging on the lower two-thirds of the face. For more dramatic and comprehensive results, a facelift can be combined with other procedures such as eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping. A facelift can offer patients a fresh, natural appearance that provides balance and makes them look as young as they feel.
How Is a Facelift Performed?
A facelift involves making incisions around the perimeter of the face. Through these incisions, undesired fat deposits are suctioned out, muscles are tightened, excess skin is trimmed, and the remaining skin and tissues are gently pulled smooth and taut before suturing. Your face will appear more slender, alert and refreshed.
What Can I Expect During Recovery from Facelift Surgery?
You will need stitches, bandages, and drains for the first few days. You may experience some bruising, numbness, or thinned hair near the scar; these fade within a few weeks. Many individuals are back on their feet in a few days but will have limited activity for a number of weeks. The face may feel stiff or appear distorted and bruising and swelling will be present. Most patients can return to work in a couple of weeks. You should be gentle with your hair and facial skin for a while and, over time, the scars will fade almost entirely.
