With advancements in facelift techniques and highly predictable outcomes, the facelift has emerged as one of the popular plastic surgery procedures today. The procedure typically involves incisions that may be placed in the front of the ear or behind the ear, usually extending into the scalp. A full facelift procedure may take at least five to 10 years off the patient’s face.
The procedure is usually performed on people in the age group of 40 to 70. Candidates who still have some amount of skin elasticity remaining in the skin will be able to achieve the best results with facelift. People who are bothered by the conspicuous signs of aging on the face may consider this surgery to achieve significant and long lasting facial rejuvenation results.
Facelift Surgery Techniques
Facelift surgery may be performed using the traditional surgical technique or a less invasive endoscopic technique. The traditional surgery is usually performed when the focus is on improving the lower face, mid face, and the neck region. Excess fat and skin will be removed through the incisions, and the loose and separated underlying muscles will be tightened to lift the face.
Stubborn fat deposits, sagging skin, jowls and mid face, double chin, nasolabial lines, and creases under the eyelids may be improved substantially with the traditional technique. In some cases, the surgeon may employ the endoscopic technique, particular if the upper face is involved. This technique is relatively less invasive and more precise. It involves the insertion of a miniature camera through the incision. The surgeon can view the deep underlying areas of the face on the monitor, and make targeted surgical improvements.
Facelift procedure can be used to achieve dramatic or subtle improvements in the facial appearance, as per the patient’s personal aesthetic goals. Wrinkles and fines can be reduced considerably, loose skin is removed, and the patient can expect a tighter, smoother, and firmer face that looks much more youthful and rejuvenated for a long time to come.
