Facelift surgery also called rhytidectomy, is a type of operation procedure that lifts and tightens facial tissues. A facelift is able to involve removing excess tissues like an extra skin, smoothing out folds or wrinkles, and tightening facial tissue. It doesn’t include a brow or eye lift, although these processes may be done at the same time as a combination with facelift operation.
A facelift is only focused on the bottom two-thirds of the face and often the neck or décolletage. Patients get the facelift process for lots of various reasons. The most common reason is to help disguise appearance signs of skin aging.
If you have any signs of aging like wrinkles and you prefer to make your appearance better than before visit a plastic surgeon and discuss your expectations. During a consultation, your physician will go over:
1. family and personal medical history
3. possible contraindications, including smoking
4. the patient’s surgical goals
5. alternatives to facelifts if the patient is not a candidate for medical reasons (like if the patient has a condition that increases the risks of undergoing general anesthesia)
Your physician may also ask you to:
1. stop smoking
2. discontinue use of aspirin, anti-inflammatory pain relievers, and any herbal supplements to reduce the risk of bleeding and bruising
3. apply specific products to your face before the procedure
You can do the following methods to help extend the results of your facelift process
1. Moisturize your face daily.
2. Protect your skin from the sun.
3. Get plenty of sleep.
4. Eat a nutritionally dense, balanced diet.
5. Drink plenty of water.
6. Talk with your surgeon if any concerns arise.
