Face Lifts

As you age,your face sags and looses volume.A facelift can reduce sagging skin on the face and neck, helping these areas to appear firmer and fresher. Your bone structure, heredity and skin texture all play a role in how many "years" a facelift can "remove" and, to some extent, influence how long will it last.This surgery can be done under local of general anaesthesia.

This surgery is done on one side at a time, through incisions that are placed in the hairline, in front of or partially within the ears as well as behind the ears. The incisions are designed to keep the resultant scars as invisible as possible. If needed, tightening of sagging muscles is also performed. The skin is then redraped and excess removed. Most of the scars will be well hidden within the hairline or within the normal lines and creases around the ears.

Patients who do not have a significant amount of excess skin sometimes may be candidates for an endoscopic facelift which is a minimally invasive surgery. Using an endoscope, the plastic surgeon can smooth the skin and tighten the muscles through very small incisions that are easily concealed. Depending on which areas of the face and neck require correction, incisions may be placed in the lower eyelid, upper gum line, beneath the chin or behind the ears.
After facelift surgery, the dressings may be removed on the next day and you may experience temporary skin discoloration and some tightness or numbness in the face and the neck. Healing is gradual, so expect to wait several months for optimal results. Since your skin will remain somewhat sensitive for a few months, protection from the sun, including daily use of a sun block, is essential. You can wear cosmetics shortly after surgery.

Latest advance in facelift surgery is to do a fat grafting procedure to the face at the same time.Restoring the volume of face with fat injection is a very effective procedure.Fat acts as a filler and has your body's stem cells to cause rejuvenation of the skin.Laser skin rejuvenation of the face can also be done after the face lift surgery to improve the results.These surgeries are routinely done at Image medical centre by Dr Anup Dhir.
