How to Get the Best Possible Results for Your Facelift?
What is Facelift?
One of the most noticeable consequences of aging is the loss of the volume of facial fat deposits, which over time leads to the effects of gravity. This can lead to gradual sagging of the skin, which accumulates in the chin and neck area, along with the loss of elasticity of the soft tissues.
A facelift is the most effective treatment to counteract sagging skin build-up. This minimally invasive surgical procedure rejuvenates the patient's face, identifies their contours and slows down the aging process.
The facelift is a cosmetic intervention of which the main purpose is to combat facial aging. The skin is lifted with minimally invasive surgery to remove wrinkles and blemishes on the face and neck. This is an aesthetic procedure performed under general anesthesia without hospitalization.
A facelift targets the face and neck, achieving a rejuvenating effect, especially in the cheekbones, chin and neck area.
The facelift is the best cosmetic procedure for the patient's skin to rejuvenate. Generally, other complementary interventions may be required to remove some wrinkles, spots, or smaller defects. The ideal treatment for each patient is decided by our facial aesthetics specialist on the first day of the visit.
Thus, the facelift is applied to:
Eliminate the deepest wrinkles on the entire face and neck.
Eliminate the grooves and folds of the lips, chin, forehead and neck.
Soften the well-known "goose's foot." These wrinkles tend to be quite thin, and to completely eliminate them, it is necessary to complete the removal process with another aesthetic treatment, such as Botox.
Eliminate deep wrinkles around the eyelids.
How long is the recovery from Facelift?
Most patients feel some discomfort after facelift surgery, but medication can alleviate sensitivity. Bruising and swelling worsen after 2 days and may continue for a few days. Recovery normally takes about 2 weeks, and vigorous activity can continue after 4 weeks. Stitches are removed approximately 5 to 10 days after facelift surgery.
After the facelift surgery, you should expect some pain, bruising, swelling, and soreness. You will be prescribed pain medication to alleviate discomfort.
It is essential to take the correct amount of medicine that has been prescribed.
You should maintain facelift results. It's unrealistic to assume that you shouldn't do anything else after you've had a facelift. In fact, it's important to take care of yourself to make your facelift look great over the years. On average, the facelift lasts 7-10 years before the patient is old enough to need additional work. Things that help to maintain the results of your facelift include:
• Apply cold packs to reduce any swelling and help ease the pain
• Wear a button-up shirt, as this will avoid having to pull any clothing over your head
• Avoid wearing makeup
• Do not apply pressure to the wounds
• Hold off from extreme physical activity
• Avoid direct exposure to the sun
• Not smoking
• Using sunscreen
• Medical Skin Care
• Skin rejuvenation procedures
• Maintaining weight stability
