Balance beyond aesthetics
Facelift – Rythidectomy – is a surgical procedure that diminishes the visible signs of face and neck aging, such as wrinkles, deeper laugh lines, under chin fat deposits and submandibular and neck sagging skin.
The facelift addresses the middle and lower floors of the face as well as the neck. The surgery requires 24 hours hospital admission, so the patient will remain hospitalized after the surgery until the next day. The lifting is performed under general anesthesia with an average intervention of 2.5–3.5 hours.
Depending on the surgeon’s preferences, the patient’s facial structure and the desired results, the type of facelift procedure could be different. Remember that every patient is unique.
If we discuss the classic facelift, the incision starts in the region of the temples in the hairline, goes down in front of the ear, and I like to preserve the exact shape of this area, going under its lobe towards the hair line of the back of the head. In this way, all the problems of the middle, lower and sometimes cervical floor of the face are corrected. For the neck surgery, an incision could be necessary under the chin.
You probably heard about the mini facelift. In this case the incision is shorter, going above the ear, in front of it and ending behind the ear. This procedure can be performed in some situations, for example when the reduction of the nasolabial folds and mandibular line need correction and tightening.
During a facelift consultation we will discuss the following:
The doctor will take care to:
During the consultation we advise you to ask all the necessary questions for a better understanding of this intervention. It is very important that you understand all aspects of a facelift surgery.
Don’t be afraid to discuss everything you need with your doctor, as she will help you through this procedure.
For the patient’s comfort during the intervention, we will administer anesthesia. This surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia.
After the surgical intervention, the patient presents with edema, bruising and a feeling of tension in the face. These conditions will disappear over time, a few days to a few weeks after the surgery. The scars will have a pink color at first but become barely noticeable over time. The results of the facelift will last for about 10-15 years, after which the surgery will need to be repeated if you want to maintain your youthful appearance, as the skin continues its aging process.
New techniques that include liposuction of certain anatomical regions, a special “fibrin glue” to fix the neck flap, lowering the temperature of the face and neck 24 hours after the surgery can be discussed and applied accordingly.
