Defy the Aging Process with Facelift Surgery
One thing that is inevitable in life is growing older. Wrinkles, loose skin and developing jowls will happen in time. This is the result of a person’s skin not being able to retain oil and moisture. This causes it to lose its elasticity. Many people don’t like how this affects their appearance. In many cases, facelift surgery could be the solution for the aging dilemma
A facelift is designed to remove undesired wrinkles and tighten the skin on a person’s face. Many people report that having a facelift improved their self-esteem. In other cases, people regained self-confidence. When the effects of aging are becoming more noticeable, some people begin feeling inhibited. After having facelift surgery, they are back to their usual personality. They have their confidence back. It is a quick and effective way to improve the self-image of a person. The results are almost immediately noticeable. Plus, after face lift surgery, less products and supplements are needed.
Facelift surgery can be performed alone or with other procedures. These include brow lift surgery, forehead lift or nose reshaping. Depending on the decision of the doctor, a person may be sedated, have local anesthesia or general anesthesia. Incisions will be made above the hairline where it meets a person’s temple. It could go behind a person’s earlobe and extend to their lower scalp. This may be only one incision. Another incision could be made below a person’s chin. Fat tissue will be removed from beneath the skin. Loose skin will be taken away and muscles will tighten. Liposuction may be done on the neck and jowls, and then the incision will be closed with stitches.
Once the surgery is performed, the patient’s head will be supported on pillows for a few days. This will reduce the swelling. There should be only minimal discomfort after the surgery. In some cases, a small drainage tube is placed under a person’s skin behind their ear. This will drain any blood that could collect there. Most discomfort can be relieved with standard pain medications. A person may have some temporary numbness of their skin. This will go away in a matter of weeks. After a day or two the drainage tube will be taken away. Bandages are removed within five days. A person’s face will appear bruised and a bit puffy. Everything is usually back to looking like normal within weeks.
Most patients are very satisfied with the results provided by face lift surgery. Most of the scars from the procedure are hidden in a person’s hairline. They may also be concealed in the natural lines of a person’s face. The scars will fade after a period of time. In some cases, a doctor will advise someone who has had face lift surgery to limit their exposure to the sun. People continue to age. The youthful appearance provided by the surgery can last a decade or longer.
