How can a facelift enhance your life?
Embracing your age begins with putting your best face forward – and for facial rejuvenation and creating a natural, no procedure compares to the transformation of a facelift. With an exquisitely subtle lift, you can place your natural beauty front and centre. It’s not about looking different or younger, it’s about framing your age in the best way possible with defined contours and a tight, lifted silhouette.
Forget what you knew about the facelift – over the years, this procedure has evolved to minimize recovery and offer the most discreet, subtle incision possible. Just as you’d frame artwork, a facelift showcases all your best features by addressing the skin’s own canvas: your skin. A facelift, also known as a Rhytidectomy, is a beautiful way to restore youth, vitality, and suppleness. It can also revive self-confidence, and the lust for life. The profile is toned and tightened, and the facial contours that are too drab are refined and sculpted. While temporary solutions like injectables and dermal fillers can provide some improvement, only a surgical facial lift can make the dramatic, enduring changes.
IS IT RIGHT FOR YOU
Are you a suitable candidate for a Facelift?
You would be a great candidate for a facial lift if you have issues, such as:
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
Deep Plane Facelift
The same incisions are used for a deep-plane facelift as a short-flap, with an additional extension that extends to the hairline below the ears. The procedure involves lifting the underlying support tissues, as well as lax, drooping, or sagging skin. As the skin and supporting tissue are moved upwards toward the ears, any laxity around the cheeks or upper neck will be corrected. This facelift technique is very natural looking.
Mini facelifts are used to reduce signs of aging when there is minimal sagging or early jowls. Because of the incision, which extends from the top of your ears to the bottom of your ears (tragus), this procedure is sometimes called a “short-flap” facelift. It ends just below the earlobes.
These incisions at the hairline are used to draw your skin upwards and remove excess skin tissue. This results in tauter, smoother skin. The mini facelift tightens and contours the SMAS (a region of muscle on the lower side) to give you a more youthful appearance. For young patients with no sagging or heavy jowls, the mini facelift is a great option.
There are several steps involved in the facelift recovery process. Patients are admitted to aftercare facilities for their immediate recovery. Aftercare facilities usually allow patients to stay for the first night, where they can receive one-on-one nursing care in a private room. It is normal for swelling and bruising to occur during healing. This may take up to several weeks before they disappear completely. The bruising starts in the lower part of the face, just in front the ears, and then moves down the neck and décolletage within the first week.
Patients are advised not to exercise for the first two weeks. They should also avoid strenuous activities. Patients who have had a facelift usually return to work in two weeks. A facelift is usually completed after 3 to 6 months once all swelling has subsided.
