Types of facelifts

Upper facelift

In specific places all over the eyes, the aging process is easily discernable in most people and can tremendously impact on the general appearance of the face. The skin starts to get deprived of its elasticity, the constructive tissues are insufficient and the bone mass also deteriorates. An upper facelift, also referred to as the brow lift provides patients with the opportunity to halt these effects of the aging process in very great measure.

This operation consists of the patient remaining under local anesthesia for the surgeon to carry out all the steps involved in the surgery. If a patient has a high hairline, their treatment will be done openly, while the patient with a lower hairline enables the doctor to carry out major endoscopic incisions.

The incision is done from one side of the forehead downwards to the cheeks but will not materialize at the back of the ears. On the cutting line, the surgeon will then detach the skin from the concealed tissue beneath to adjust the loose muscle and the depressed fat pads that are held in place using some thin stitches.

After stitching up the wounds using intracutaneous stitches, the surgeon will then apply light gauze so that the wound will repair on its own without any noticeable scars remaining. Generally, the operation lasts about 1.30 hours and is particularly applicable for people looking to lift specific areas of their faces such as the forehead, cheekbones and eyebrows. This upper facelift procedure is generally cognate with blepharoplasty, which is a procedure done on the eyelids. Together, these two procedures can bring about a reinvigorated and fresh look.

The Full Facelift Procedure

The full facelift procedure is undertaken for the purposes of lessening appearances of facial wrinkles and other manifestations of the aging process. The procedure reverses adverse effects of time, stress and the skin’s susceptibility to the elements. The muscles concealed beneath are lifted and tightened. The facial features as well as the contours and general structure of the face are enhanced and reanimated. The procedure is generally performed on the upper, middle and lower areas of the face.  . It’s ideal for people with face and neck wrinkles. This is a preferred method for the enhancement of discernible signs of the aging process on the forehead, the jaw, the cheeks and the neck. This operation can be done with anesthesia and requires that the patient stays in hospital for 1 day. Recovery time takes about seven days due to the swelling that happens after the operation.

Neck lift

Neck lift surgery, also referred to as neck liposuction, achieves the desired effect of lessening the effects of aging that are brought about by hereditary factors, gravity and the recognized process of aging with time. An aesthetic neckline can be brought about by decreasing a double chin also known as a turkey waddle.

Neckline lift surgery can be accompanied with a facelift for patients with easily noticeable bands in their necks or the glut of fat below the chin. This type of surgery mostly requires a very small incision below the chin to get rid of the fat to aesthetically enhance the appearance of the neck.

Pre-Operation
  • The necessary preparatory checkup is carried out during a meeting with the specialist who is expected to perform the procedure. This is also an opportunity to deliberate on your specific case and to bring up any queries you might have about the operation.
  • Aside from this, there are a number of factors that you need to be aware of before the procedure. Smoking is regarded as detrimental to the process of healing and can bring about necrosis. It is for this reason that patients are advised to stay away from smoking for at least a day prior to the surgery.
  • No medication with aspirin should be consumed prior to and after the operation. Aspirin has the effect of thinning blood and this interferes with the process of healing.
  • Ensure that you let your doctor know prior to the operation which medications, if any, that you might be on, particularly if one or more has the following properties:
    – Aspirin
    – Alka-Seltzer
    – Bayer productsx
    – Excedrin
    – Pepto-Bismol
    – Ibuprofen

The Procedure

Generally, facelift operations are done while the patient is under local anesthesia and can also be under a moderate tranquilizer. This is essential for the patient to remain composed because this is an operation that requires extreme precision. A complete anesthesia can also be an alternative that the patient can discuss with his or her doctor.

The incision starts right on top of the hairline at the temple and runs right behind the earlobe and beneath the scalp. In the event that neck treatment is also necessary, minor incision might also be done below the chin.

The specialist will then detach the skin from the fat and muscle tissue, firm up the muscle and membrane beneath, pull the skin back and then trim the surplus fat. Fat tissues might also undergo a process of trimming or suction especially around the neck and chin to enhance the frame of the neck as well as the jawline.

Once the required changes have been undertaken, the wound will be stitched up. There are instances where a small tube will be appended behind the ear for a limited time to ensure that blood is drained.

Finally, the wounds are then wrapped using a gauze to support the process of healing. Scars, blemishes or inflammations can only be evident right after the procedure and will vanish in little or no time.

In the last step of each facelift type, the wounds will be covered with a thin bandage to ensure it remains clean and support the healing process. Scars, bruises or swelling will only be visible in the intermediate aftermath of the operation and will disappear over a short period of time.

Post Operation
  • After the operation, it is essential that the healing process is given sufficient time. It is important to refrain from the use of hair dye products for about 4 to 6 weeks after the operation.
  • Squeezing the area gently with cold water or ice in the first 24 hours can help lessen the bruising and swelling that generally happens after facelift procedures. Ensure that the bandages as well as the stitches are not moistened when you go to the bathroom to shower.
  • Most times, facelift operations will not result in major swelling or pain. Nonetheless, discomforts and minor pain can be experienced around the incision areas although this will soon disappear 24 hours after the procedure.
  • Patients might also experience tightness or numbness in a few areas of their faces although this is regarded as typical and will dissipate in 6 to 12 weeks. There are rare instances where numbness will be experienced for about nine months. It is advisable to consult your physician and they will prescribe painkillers mostly Tylenol or Hydrocodone.
  • Cut down on physical activity to allow the wounds sufficient time for healing. You are advised not to completely desist from moving your head and never to bend over for a period of 3 weeks.
  • Do not smoke before 2 weeks elapse
