Most of us are far too aware of what happens to our face and skin as we get older. Rather than maintaining that perfectly smooth and firm skin of our youth, the skin on the face experiences wear and sagging as the years go by. This is caused by genetics, environmental factors or just simply the aging process. So while it may be unavoidable, men and women don’t have to live with sagging skin forever.
Face lifts are a safe procedure that can greatly change your appearance and the way you feel about your looks as you age. Speak to your doctor first to discuss the problem areas you wish to fix, and they will tell you what is possible with a face lift.
The consultation is one of the most important parts of the process of a face lift surgery. Making sure the doctor and patient are on the same page is essential to achieve the desired results.
A face lift is used to tighten the tissues underneath the skin of the face, and relocate the fat pads in the face to a higher position. This combats the natural process of sagging that happens over time as we age.
After a face lift, patients will have a firmer and more youthful appearance.
The surgeon will make an incision above and across the hairline, then following the crease around the ear and lower scalp, which reduces the appearance of scarring. They will separate the skin away from the fat, and tighten the muscles of the face so they will look more youthful.
Any excess muscle or fat after the procedure is cut away or suctioned out to improve the contour.
They will use dissolvable sutures so you won’t ever have to go back in and have these removed.
Before surgery, it’s so important to let your surgeon know if you are taking any medications, whether prescription or non-prescription. You should also tell them whether you have any allergies or medical conditions.
It’s important to stop smoking for at least 2 weeks before surgery, because this can affect how you react to the anesthetics. Smoking can also prolong the healing process post-surgery.
Also stop taking Aspirin, blood-thinning medications and vitamins and herbs for at least 2 weeks before surgery, as removing these will reduce the chance of post-operative bleeding.
When you wake up from a face lift surgery, your head will be in bandages which will help to reduce bruising and swelling.
It might be a little bit of a shock to see yourself this way, but don’t worry, it’s perfectly normal!
The doctor might insert a small tube under the skin behind your ear to help drain out any excess fluid.
The bandages will be loosened and removed after a few days, but the doctor will probably have you wear a compression garment for a few weeks during the healing process.
It’s important to follow all doctors instructions during the recovery time. All garments and bandages must be worn for the time recommended, in order for your body to heal itself properly.
Don’t perform any strenuous activity after surgery, because you want to avoid putting tension on the wound. And avoid any dental work as this could also place stress on the face.
If all goes well, recovery time for a face lift is around one to two weeks. While there may still be some swelling, most people are back at work in two weeks.
Face lifts are a safe and common procedure. However, there are risks involved with any surgical procedure that are important to understand.
Some risks associated with face lifts can include numbness near the ears, as these nerves may be traumatized, and infection. Your doctor should give you antibiotics to prevent the start of any infections during recovery.
Swelling, bruising, soreness and bleeding are also common side effects that should be reduced within a week or two.
