Facelift in Thailand

If you’re considering a facelift, it’s important to choose the right surgeon. Our board-certified plastic surgeons have performed facelift surgeries in Thailand for over 20 years.

No matter how well you stay out of the sun and care for your skin, everyone eventually succumbs to gravity and lost facial volume. While facial volume loss produces a hollow appearance around the eyes and in the cheeks, gravity causes the skin to sag and create the appearance of jowls and “turkey neck.” Fortunately, advancements in aesthetic treatments are enabling more and more people to counteract these signs of aging. As a result, more people are keeping their youthful looks and enjoying the best things in life longer.

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure used to reduce visible signs of aging in your face and neck. A facelift can include removing excessive facial skin, smoothing out wrinkles or skin folds and tightening the facial tissues, effectively “turning back the clock” on aging by making skin appear smoother and more youthful.

Facelift surgery is suitable for men and women who have a well-defined bone structure, but are concerned about sagging skin in the face and neck. It is considered one of the most effective and satisfying surgical anti-aging treatments that provides long-lasting results as well as a dramatically improved facial appearance.

The Procedure

There are many different types of facelifts, and each is tailored to meet specific needs.

Traditional Facelift

A traditional facelift (also known as full facelift) addresses signs of aging, such as deep wrinkles and sagging skin on the jawline, cheeks, and neck. It involves incisions that begin from the temples and extend along the hairline, around the ears and down to the neck. Your surgeon will tighten the the skin and underlying muscle to a achieve a more youthful appearance.

Mid facelift

The Mid Facelift targets the area from the upper cheeks to the lower eyelids, enhancing the depth of the cheekbones and smoothing the nasolabial folds for a refreshed look.

Neck lift

A Neck Lift specifically addresses signs of aging in the neck and jawline area, eliminating loose skin and excess fat to restore a smoother, more defined neck contour. During your consultation, your surgeon will recommend a particular procedure that is best suited for your specific needs.

Best Candidates For a Facelift

Ideal candidates for facelift procedures possess a strong underlying bone structure and good muscle tone, but with noticeable skin laxity and sagging in the mid to lower facial regions, including the cheeks, jawline, and neck. Having realistic expectations and being in overall good health are also important for the best outcomes and recovery from the surgery. Skin elasticity and the individual’s healing ability are key factors in the success of the facelift, emphasizing the importance of a healthy lifestyle and adherence to pre- and post-operative care instructions.

Facelift Recovery

After surgery, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Prescription medication can help manage your pain. You will need to keep your head elevated for several days to help reduce swelling. Most people return to work within two weeks of the procedure but may take longer depending on the type of facelift undertaken. If you’re traveling to Thailand from abroad, you should be prepared to stay in Thailand 10-14 days after your procedure.

Many people are worried about visible scarring following facelift surgery, and this is understandable. However, advancements in surgical techniques have significantly contributed to minimizing their visibility. At Interplast Clinic, we prioritize careful incision placement in less noticeable areas and provide comprehensive aftercare instructions to ensure optimal healing.
