Why Facelift?

why facelift

As you age and the aging process begins, the skin naturally loses its elasticity and becomes more fragile. Reduction in the production of natural skin fat also leads to  dry skin and wrinkles, External factors such as sunlight, lifestyle, smoking and facial movements such as frowning or laughing and genetics are also involved in the aging process of the skin.

Ultimately, all of the above factors can cause deep wrinkles on your skin. Preventing or delaying this natural process has always been a great concern. One of the methods used to rejuvenate the skin is facelift. This method is very effective and consists of several techniques. Depending on the diagnosis of your surgeon, this may be done with or without surgery. In addition to facelift surgery, non-surgical facelift procedures are also described below.

Non-Surgical Facelift

Non-surgical face lift is a combination of non-surgical methods designed to refresh and rejuvenate the skin. Compared to surgical facelifts, these procedures do not require incisions, general anesthesia, or hospitalization. The results of non-surgical facelift rejuvenation are also significant. These methods include the following:

Filler Injection
Dermal fillers are the basis of non-surgical face lifts. These injectable gels instantly restore volume along the cheeks, temples, lips and under the eyes. Dark shadows disappear and cause youthful vitality.

Fat Injection
Using adipose tissue extracted through liposuction from other areas of the body, these fat cells are processed and re-injected into the face to increase facial volume.

HIFU therapy is a new technique used to lift the face and tighten the skin.

Thread Lift
This is a delicate operation that gently pulls the skin of the face to make it smoother and younger. This treatment does not require a recovery period.

What Is Facelift?

Facelift surgery is significantly effective in relieving sagging skin, as well as deep wrinkles.

Facelift Techniques in Iran

One of the most important parts of preoperative consultation is determining the type of procedure; determining the type of face lift surgery varies according to the costs, goals of the operation, the length of the recovery period, and much more.

Complete Facelift
In this method, the extra skin under the chin, lines around the lips, sagging around the cheeks, wrinkles around the eyes etc. can be treated. This method of face lift covers a large area of the face and can largely eliminate the appearance changes caused by aging.

In mid-facelift, the cheeks are raised, more attractive cheek lines are created, the nasal folds are eliminated and the lower eyelids are improved. If necessary, it can be combined with other facelift methods. Mid-facelift  is the best method for candidates who do not have sagging skin on the neck.

This method is used to treat sagging skin and remove excess skin on the lower part of the face. It is mostly used in young people who are experiencing aging of the lower part of the face.

Lower Facelift

Preoperative Preparations

First, you will consult with a plastic surgeon about a facelift. This visit will include the following:

A Complete History and Physical Examination
This step includes questions about your past and present medical conditions, previous surgeries and their complications, history of smoking and drug or alcohol use, medications, your expectations from the results and full physical examination.

Medication Instructions
You will receive instructions on what medications to stop and when. For example, you may be asked to stop taking blood thinners such as aspirin or supplements at least two weeks before surgery.

Facial Examination
The plastic surgeon takes pictures of the face from different angles and close-up photos of some features. He will also examine your bone structure, facial shape, fat distribution, and skin quality to determine your best options for facelift surgery.

Washing Your Face and Hair
On the morning of surgery, you will be asked to wash your hair and face with antimicrobial soap.

Avoid Eating
You will be asked to not eat anything the night before the facelift. You will be able to drink water and take medications that have been approved by your surgeon.

How It Is Done?

In general, a facelift involves lifting the skin and tightening the underlying tissues and muscles. Face and neck fat may be removed, redistributed or restored. Then the excess skin is removed and the wound is sutured or closed.

Incisions in this procedure depend on the technique used and the patient’s preferences and may include hairline, chin, or ear.

A facelift generally takes two to four hours, but may take longer if other cosmetic procedures are performed at the same time.

Postoperative Care

After a facelift, you may experience the following:

  • Mild to moderate pain, discharge from incisions, swelling, bruising, and numbness that are usually transient.
  • Your incisions are likely to be covered with bandages that apply gentle pressure to minimize swelling and bruising. A small tube (drain) may be placed under the skin behind one or both ears to drain excess blood or fluid. Your doctor will inform you as to when they should be removed.
  • Rest your head up.
  • Avoid heavy activities for a few weeks. Normal activity is not harmful and absolute rest is forbidden as this increases the risk of blood clots in the arteries of the lower extremities.
  • Sexual activity is prohibited for up to two weeks.
  • Use painkillers as recommended by your doctor.
  • Rub cool packs on the face to reduce pain and reduce swelling.
  • The day after surgery, your surgeon will likely remove the drain tube, apply antibiotic ointment to the incisions, and place new bandages on your face.
  • About a week after surgery, your doctor will remove your stitches and assess the wound.

The Recovery Period

Make sure you ask about aftercare of the operation site from your doctor. If you have any questions, consult your doctor.

Ask your doctor about the medications that have been prescribed and how they should be taken.

One of the most important points after surgery and during the healing period is to take care of the wound and pay attention to the symptoms around it. Tell your doctor if you have any problems or abnormal symptoms.

Possible Side Effects

Facelift is generally a risk-free procedure, but it can have side effects such as:

Following a facelift, it is normal to feel pain in the head and neck for two weeks.

After the surgery, some bruising develops that moves down the neck and usually goes away a few weeks after the operation.

Face Swelling
Similar to pain, swelling is also common after facelift surgery and heals after two weeks.

Scar Mark
Usually the surgical scar (scar from a surgical incision) disappears after the facelift.

Temporary anesthesia, hair loss, stiffness and puffiness of the face and slow recovery process are other complications of facelift surgery that are temporary and transient.
