Face Lift

We can no longer say that facelift surgeries, commonly pursued for aesthetic concerns, are only preferred by women in today’s era. Facial rejuvenation procedures, highly sought after among modern men, are often chosen to address skin laxity and sagging that occur on the face after a certain age. There is no age limit for this procedure. By making incisions in the skin, intervention is performed on the underlying connective tissues, facial muscles, and sagging tissues. Through these deep tissue manipulations, loose and sagging elements are repositioned to their natural positions on a normal face, effectively correcting any existing irregularities. Endoscopic facelift procedures involve small incisions of 1 to 2 millimeters, which are hidden within the hairline, resulting in no visible scarring. In traditional methods, these incisions are placed in front and behind the ears, blending with the natural lines of the face, and gradually becoming invisible as they heal.


What is a facelift?

A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that aims to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck. It involves removing excess facial skin, tightening underlying tissues, and repositioning or redistributing fat to restore a more youthful and rejuvenated facial appearance.

Who is a suitable candidate for a facelift?

Suitable candidates for a facelift are individuals who have noticeable signs of facial aging such as sagging skin, deep creases, jowls, and loss of facial volume. Good overall health and realistic expectations are important factors. A consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon is necessary to evaluate your specific concerns and determine if a facelift is the appropriate procedure for you.

How is a facelift performed?

A facelift is typically performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. The surgeon makes incisions, usually hidden within the hairline and natural contours of the face, to access and lift the underlying tissues. Excess skin is then trimmed, and the remaining skin is re-draped and sutured into place. In some cases, additional procedures such as liposuction, fat grafting, or neck lift may be combined with a facelift for optimal results.

What is the recovery process like after a facelift?

The recovery process after a facelift can vary depending on the extent of the procedure and individual factors. Initially, there may be swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with pain medication and proper rest. A compression garment may be recommended to support the face during the healing process. Most individuals can return to work and light activities within two weeks, but it may take several weeks to fully recover and see the final results. Strenuous activities should be avoided for a few weeks.

Are there any risks or potential complications associated with a facelift?

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications associated with a facelift. These can include infection, bleeding, adverse reactions to anesthesia, scarring, changes in sensation, hairline distortion, asymmetry, and dissatisfaction with the results. It’s important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon experienced in performing facelifts and discuss potential risks and complications with them. Following their pre- and post-operative instructions carefully can help minimize risks and achieve optimal results.
