What is surgical face lift?
As you age, your facial muscles loosen and your skin becomes less elastic, creating folds and lines. A face-lift operation can give you a more youthful appearance by reducing saggy skin and wrinkles. Face-lifts can lift your whole face, or just your brow area, lower face, or neck.
The effects of a face-lift usually last for seven to 10 years. Your face will continue to age. You’ll get the best results if you maintain a stable body weight, have skin with good levels of elasticity, don’t smoke and have good bone structure.
- In a traditional face-lift, we will make a surgical cut in your hairline, down past the front of your ears and then up into the hairline again behind the ears. Cuts may also be made under your chin if you want to lift a sagging jawline.
- Your skin is carefully separated from the underlying tissues, followed by removal of the excess fat, or tightening the muscles or surrounding tissues in your face.the final step is to lift your skin, pull it back and trim off any excess skin.which is then stitched back to the line where the cut was made.
- Afterwards, your face is wrapped in bandages. Depending on the exact procedure, these may run under your chin, around your ears and/or over your head. They are usually taken off after a day or two, before you go home.
