Thinking About A Face Lift?

Begin The Face Lift Process

Women and men in their 40s, 50s and 60s are tending to turn to face lifts to give them a more youthful appearance that they could not otherwise achieve. Face lifts have become a very popular type of plastic surgery in this county. When some people notice a sag in their facial skin or wrinkles that they do not want to see, it is easy to turn to plastic surgery for a quick fix. A face lift can smooth out lines all over your face as well as remove excess, sagging skin that might make you look heavy or droopy in the face.

In most cases, face lifts are performed in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia with sedation, or under general anesthesia. The incisions can vary depending upon peoples’ hairlines and facial features, but the surgeon typically starts in the hair above the ear. They will then follow the front edge of the ear and curve around your ear lobe and then back into the hairline behind the ear.

Once the plastic surgeon has elevated your facial skin, the next deeper layer of the face with muscle attachments is then tightened for a more natural look. The facial skin is gently re-positioned and lifted, with the removal of excess skin as well. Some people like to combine other plastic surgeries with their face lift like an eyelid lift.

Most of face lift patients are able to have their sutures removed within 12 days. The amount of pain and swelling differs from person to person. Most bruising and swelling will decrease within 10 to 14 days. This means that you could possibly leave your home without being in pain or self-conscious of your appearance. Shortly after you can resume your normal work or regular activities. In most cases, the final results will be visible 4-6 weeks after the procedure.
