WHAT IS A FACELIFT?
As we age, facial skin and facial muscles lose tone, this process being more pronounced from the age of 40.
The objective of a facelift, also called rhytidectomy, is to obtain a rejuvenated and natural-looking face. It is not about looking like someone else, but about recovering a younger version of yourself.
The surgery technique consists of removing the excess skin after repositioning the muscle layers, the skin and the fat. The incision usually begins in the temple area (inside the hair), extend down in front of your ear and continues around the earlobe, behind the ear and the scalp.
Scars are perfectly camouflaged. The intervention is performed with general anesthesia or with local anesthesia and sedation.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF FACELIFTS?
FACELIFT RECOVERY PERIOD
Once the lifting surgery is complete, the wounds are closed with stitches, leaving small tubes under the skin so that no exudate or blood accumulates.
The patient will leave the operating room with dressings, bandages on the head and a drainage system. Although hospitalization is not necessary, it is recommended that the patient be accompanied so that he can be assisted in the following hours after the intervention.
The postoperative period is practically painless, although uncomfortable. To reduce inflammation, we use a special facial mask (hilotherapy) that provides cold and constant temperature of 15ºC.
The day after the intervention, the surgeon removes the bandages and evaluates the incisions and the condition of the face. The recovery time will last around two weeks. As in other plastic surgeries, the patient will experience swelling and bruising in the treated area. These symptoms will fade gradually.
Fifteen days after the intervention, the patient can return to normal life and begin with the usual routines and activities. You should be especially careful with sun exposure. Face lift surgery does not involve serious risks or side effects.
To ensure success, you need to use a team of highly experienced plastic surgeons with access to the right technology. It is also essential to carry out a correct preoperative study and medical control after the intervention.
