There are many creams and procedures that may make your face look younger, but the best option to reduce or remove the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles that are caused by age is a traditional face-lift.
Technically known as rhytidectomy, a facelift requires several surgical techniques that combine to smooth wrinkles and tighten skin.
The aim of a facelift is to rejuvenate the appearance of the face. The deep anatomical structures of the face are the platysma muscle, orbicularis oculi muscle and cheek fat.
These lead to the development of jowls, downward folds in the cheeks, and sagging muscles around the eyes. The skin is also a factor, but the skin must be lifted to deal with the issues underneath first.
There are several reasons that your face starts to age such as heredity, stress, environmental conditions and gravity.
Some of the most common signs of aging are:
• Creases below the eyelids
• Creases along the nose to the corner of the mouth
• Fallen or displaced fat
• Sagging cheeks that creates jowls
• Fatty deposits under the jaw and chin that creates a double chin even in thin people
Our doctor will remove the stitches after 12 or more days. You may be prescribed medication to help relieve any discomfort you may have.
Your face will appear swollen and bruised for some time. You may use cold compresses to help relieve the bruising and swelling. In many cases, the doctor will ask you to keep your head free of any accessories.
Smoking, even second-hand smoke, can cause problems in the healing process such as increase the possibility of tissue death and make any scarring worse.
If you are a smoker, it may be recommended to quit smoking some time before and after surgery. In most cases, people who have had a facelift can return to work or their daily activities in two to three weeks.
When the surgery and recovery period is over, you’ll look years younger for years to come.
A facelift cannot stop the aging process, and it won’t change your fundamental appearance.
Non-surgical anti-aging treatments cannot have the same effect, but may help extend the time before you need a facelift.
