Facelift: What to Expect

What’s facelift?

A facelift is a surgical procedure that includes the removal of wrinkles on the face by surgery. This treatment is usually aesthetic in nature and recommended to individuals pursuing a more youthful look. This procedure:

  • Eliminates and tightens the loose skin,
  • Reduces the drooping of the cheeks around the jaw line,
  • Raises the edges of the mouth
  • Decreases the wrinkles between the cheeks and the mouth.

Throughout a facelift, the skin flap is pulled on each side of the face, and the tissues underneath the skin are surgically enhanced to give the contour of the face a younger silhouette. Before the flap is closed, extra skin is removed.

The Scar

A traditional facelift scar often starts in the hairline of the temples poceeds across the ear and finishes in the lower scalp. Fat can be sculpted or reallocated from the face, the jowls and the neck, and the fundamental tissue is repositioned, and the deeper levels of the face and muscles are also raised. Your outcome should not only preserve a much more youthful and restful appearance, but also motivate you to feel more confident about yourself.

Self-care                                                                                                                                        

Self-care at home within the first three weeks will help you recover and reduce the likelihood of complications. Follow the directions for wound care as instructed by your surgeon. Do not select the crusting scabs that will grow on your cut. Follow the instructions as for when you can start using shampoo and cleaner and what types you should use. Avoid the use of makeup. Avoid physical or intense exercise or sport. Be careful about direct application of the sunlight to the incision for three weeks then use a protection of SPF 30 or higher.
