Frequently Asked Questions
1. Am I a suitable candidate for Facelift?
The greatest candidates for facelift surgery are who have some evidence of facial aging but still have some skin elasticity. Persons in their 40s to 70s are the most common candidates, however older people are rarely considered.
2. Does Facelift Operation hurt?
Patients report minor soreness in the evenings following the facelift procedure. Due to the action of swelling, a small pain may be felt. The majority of people who have had a facelift are discharged from the hospital the day after the procedure.
3. Should I get a Facelift operation with Neck Lift?
A neck lift is usually performed at the same time as a facelift. Because the sutures used in a neck lift can be put around the ears, combining a facelift and a neck lift can help with skin healing and scarring. Even so, a neck lift can be performed without undergoing a facelift.
4. Where are Facelift incisions made?
Facelifts vary depending on the patient's desired results. An incision is created in the hairline near the temples in the most frequent surgery. The incision is made in front of the patient's ear, down to the earlobe and hugging it, then back to the lower scalp behind the ears. Fat and extra skin on the face can also be removed or redistributed. The underlying muscle and connective tissue are relocated and tightened. If there is just minor sagging of the skin, a micro facelift can be performed with less incisions. Excess skin and fat will be removed from the neck if a neck lift is also performed. The skin of the neck will be pulled up and back and tightened. This is commonly accomplished by making an incision just beneath the chin. The incisions are meant to mix perfectly with your natural hairline and facial structure.
5. How visible are scars after a Facelift?
The scars of a skillfully performed facelift procedure are nearly impossible to see after healing. The doctor will place them in creases and other natural hiding spots to hide them from notice. The incisions are strategically placed in the ear canal, behind the ear, and in the hairline to ensure that they are not visible. After a brief period of recovery, onlookers will observe that the patient appears to be a younger, more refreshed version of himself/herself, with no obvious scarring.
