Are you a candidate for the facelift procedure?

Facelift or rhytidectomy is an example of plastic surgery which is performed in order to flatten the face skin and eliminate wrinkles or other consequences of ageing. The surgery is a choice if you have been bothered with creases below the eyelids or along the nose, unwanted deposits of fat tissue in the neck or face area and jowls which have appeared due to decreased muscle tone.

One more common reason for facelift is sagging skin below the chin and jaw line which makes a patient with average weight to look obese. These features may appear in younger age due to smoking, obesity, poor diet or inheritance. In this case the procedure is also helpful if you are determined to change the lifestyle first.

The screening for the procedure is used not as much as to evaluate the complaints as to understand the vision of the result you have and the reason why you are willing to have such procedure. It should be stressed that facelift does not give a guarantee that your social problems will be solved. On the contrary, the surgery is not advised if such goals are expressed because you have to be focused and prepared for psychologically challenging path ahead.

What to expect during the preparation for the facelift?

Finally, if you meet with the mentioned criteria a preparation for the surgery will begin. During the first consultation you will be asked about your medical history, so as to make it easier prepare some answers at home. You should consider all diseases that you had or maybe have, medication you are taking now – this also includes over-the-counter drugs and herbal substances. Information about previous surgeries and your reaction to anaesthesia. Also name any allergies you may have.

Later the surgeon will introduce you with the steps of surgery – what type of anaesthesia will be applied, where the incision will be made, how you will feel after the procedure and the ways to facilitate the process of healing. During this part you should be an active participant of the conversation. Do not hesitate to ask any questions. You will be more relaxed while knowing what to expect. Besides, the doctor is usually willing to take a photo of you in order to compare it with the results in the future.

What are possible risks?

You will also discuss the results and possible adverse effects. Although it is uncommon, you need to understand the risk and confirm it by signing a special form. It may include complications due to anaesthesia such as respiratory system disorders or allergic reaction to used medications. As in every surgical intervention there is a risk of infection and bleeding.
What concerns the facelift procedure, it carries the risk of visible scars, hair loss in the incision site, injury of nerve structures which may appear as a facial asymmetry and changes of skin color. These adverse effects sometimes require repetitive surgery or other ways of treatment.

Before facelift

Several weeks prior to facelift you will have to undergo some tests as well as physical examination to evaluate your health condition. Also, you may be given some instructions which may include restrictions of smoking or drinking alcohol. By the way, you will be asked to stop taking certain medications such as aspirin and the drugs from group called NSAIDs in order to prevent bleeding during the surgery and recovery period.

How facelift is performed?

There are three possible ways to perform the facelift surgery: traditional, limited facelift and neck lift. The surgeon will choose the most suitable way depending on what areas you want to change.

During the traditional facelift operation an incision is performed in the hairline starting from the temporal area and going down around the ear to the lower part of the scalp. Later excessive fat tissue and skin is removed followed by lifting of underlying tissues which will be re-draped and sutured in higher level. After performing traditional facelift you will see flatter skin on your forehead and improved lower part of face.

Other types of surgery are performed similarly, but the incision takes place lower and is smaller itself. As the definition implies limited facelift and neck lift improves the lower part of your face and neck.

What happens during postoperative period?

The recovery period may take from 4 to 6 weeks. For the first days after the surgery you will be wrapped in the bandages in order to decrease the swelling and bruising. In addition, your head should be in the higher lever (usually it is recommended to sleep on 2 pillows) while sleeping to improve these symptoms. To relieve the pain medications should be applied. On the second week after the surgery you will feel much better. The bandages will be removed, although the result still will not be satisfying. With the time the puffiness and bruising of your face will decrease and the final results will be visible. What concerns surgical scars they will be hidden by your hair or ears, to make them less addressed ask special unguents for your doctor.

Eventually, the final result of facelift will be flattering and rejuvenated from 10 to 20 years.
