A facelift is the most comprehensive approach to treating facial wrinkles and sagging caused by aging. The surgery varies in range from minimally invasive ‘lunchtime lifts’ to more extensive, sophisticated surgery. A facelift removes excess skin, tightens underlying tissues and muscle and redrapes skin on the face and neck.
A facelift surgery is required to improve the visible signs of aging due to heredity, gravity, environmental conditions, and stress etc. An aging face not only loses skin elasticity and develops looser skin, but also loses fat and muscle tone. The obvious signs which necessitate the procedure are :
➞ Sagging in the middle of your face
➞ Deep creases below the lower eyelids
➞ Deep creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth
➞ Fat that has fallen or has disappeared
➞ Loss of skin tone in the lower face
➞ Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw can give even a person of normal weight the appearance of a double chin
A facelift procedure is performed through an incision starting in the hair or hairline above and in front of the ear (the temporal region). The incision is extended downward in front of the ear, comes under the ear and then upward behind the ear ending in the hair or hairline behind the ear. The skin and fatty tissues are then lifted off the underlying muscle and fascia (connective tissue) as far forward as is necessary to correct the loose skin problem. The underlying muscle and fascia can be tightened with sutures if the surgeon feels it is necessary. The skin is pulled back and upward and the excess skin removed. The wound is then closed with sutures and skin staples. Drains may be placed. Bandages are then applied.
Facelift is very satisfying procedure to most patients. It achieves a youthful appearance in all the patients which lasts approximately 10 years. The surgery is performed in an outpatient setting. Pain and discomfort after surgery are minimal. Once the dressings are removed after approximately 3-5 days, the patient can resume social activities using makeup to cover bruising and hair over the ears to hide the sutures.
