Advantages, Procedure and After-Surgery Precautions of Facelift Surgeries

By Skin & Hair Academy  |   January 13, 2016

Technically termed as ‘rhytidectomy’, facelift surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure used for giving a youthful appearance to your face by improving aging signs on your neck and face. It is done by removing excess skin, tightening underlying muscles and tissues, and re-draping skin on the affected areas. So, if you have midface sagging, jowls, double chin or marionette lines, you can have them corrected through a facelift surgery.
Who can benefit?

A facelift surgery can be beneficial for you, if you have:

Mid-face sagging

Deep creases below your lower eyelids

 

Deep creases on the sides of your nose, extending to your mouth’s corners

Loose skin under the jaw and chin

 

Jowls in the lower face

 
Facelift surgery procedure
  • The plastic surgeon gives you local or general anaesthesia, or sedation
  • Surgical cuts are made
  • Some fat tissue is lifted from the skin, loose skin is removed or moved, and muscles are tightened
  • Sutures or stitches are used to close the incisions made
The recovery period
  • The surgeon may place a thin, small drainable tube under your skin to facilitate drainage of blood collected there
  • Your head may be wrapped in bandages to minimize swelling and bruising
  • You may need to take pain relievers to reduce any discomfort after the surgery
  • You may feel some skin numbness, which automatically goes away within a few weeks
 
 
Precautions after surgery

Avoid any NSAIDs like ibuprofen and aspirin for a couple of weeks after the surgery

Do not smoke, and do not even get exposed to 2nd hand smoke after the surgery

Do not bend, lift or strain the area

You can wear concealing makeup under your surgeon’s supervision only
