This type of procedure is made often performed on those ranging in age from 45 to 55 and can help reduce the signs of aging and rejuvenate the bottom part of the face. During a lower facelift, the underlying connective and muscles tissues known as the smas are lifted, facial skin is tightened and excess skin is removed. This surgery typically takes about three hours to perform. Recovery times about two to three weeks will start to notice more and more results in that same time period.

The mid-facelift is usually performed to rejuvenate the middle portion of your face. It targets the area around the nose, eyes and corners of the mouth.

The final result will continue to evolve for a few months.

1. What is a Facelift?
The facelift, technically known as rhytidectomy, is a plastic surgery procedure which can improve aging signs in the mid to lower face and neck, including sagging in the mid-face area, creases below the eyes and loose skin and fat below the chin and jaw. For individuals concerned with facial aging, the facelift can restore a dramatically more youthful and rested facial appearance. Facelift procedure is not for the upper face per se, for that part of the face, a Browlift is the suitable procedure.

2.How do I know if a facelift is right for me?

If you are interested in improving aging signs in your face and/or neck, a facelift may be right for you. Patients are often looking to address creases below the eyes, sagging in the midface area, loose skin and fat in the chin and jaw, and/or jowls. Candidates for facelift surgery should also be in good overall health, should not smoke, and should be realistic in their goals for improvement. A quick assessment from the Clinic Center doctor will give you the necessary information about the suitability of the surgery for you.


3. How is the facelift surgery performed?
The face lift operation is most frequently performed using general or light sleep anesthesia. Patients usually sleep during the procedure and awake with very little memory of the operation itself. The incisions will be placed as inconspicuously as possible within or above the hairline. They usually begin behind the hairline at the temples, and continue in a natural line in front of the ear. The skin is separated from the fat and muscle below it. The underlying muscle and other tissue are tightened and the skin itself is pulled back, trimmed, and sutured into place. Sometimes, surgical staples are used instead of sutures.


4. What can I expect the recovery to be like after a facelift?
After surgery, a bandage will be applied to the face and head and drainage tubes may be inserted at the incisions sites if necessary. The drainage tubes are typically removed on the day after surgery. Some discomfort, swelling and bruising can be expected. Patients often experience a sensation of tightness or tension in the face and neck. Discomfort can be alleviated with medication. Stitches are typically removed after seven days, and work and most non-strenuous activities can usually be resumed after two weeks.


5. When will I be able to return to work or exercise after Facelift?
Most patients that undergo a facelift can return to work in two weeks time. You will spend your first week with us in Clinic Center, therefore after one week of getting back to home, you will be able to go to work without a problem. Regarding exercises, it is recommended not to exercise within the first three weeks of a Facelift surgery.

There is no “usual age” for a face lift. It can range anywhere from the 30’s to the 80’s. However, a face lift can produce better results in those who are more mature or need extensive lifting and tightening or rejuvenation. In Clinic Center, our doctor will help you to achieve the most suitable procedure for your age.
