Intro to Facelift

Are you ready to turn back the clock and get a more youthful-looking face? A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that can give your face a more youthful appearance by removing extra facial skin and reshaping the lower part of your face.
In 2016, more than 107,250 women and 13,700 men underwent facelift surgery in the United States. So, it is an extremely popular surgery, and both men and women can have it.
Facelift surgery divides into different types, such as full facelift, mid-facelift, and mini facelift. Your cosmetic surgeon will choose the technique or type that suits your needs.

    • Are in their 40s to 60s, but younger or older people can be candidates as well
    • Exhibit symptoms of facial aging
    • Have realistic expectations
    • Have good skin elasticity
    • Are not smokers

    Preparation for Facelift

    To receive all facelift benefits, you must first choose an experienced plastic surgeon with a proven record. You and your surgeon will discuss many things during your facelift consultation, including your goals and objectives, medical history, allergies, medications, and drinking habits. Moreover, your surgeon may do or suggest the following:
    • Examine your physical and mental condition.
    • Discuss facelift types and options and their complications.  
    • Take clinical pictures of your face and neck after getting your permission.
    • Suggest you undergo a blood test or take new medications.
    • Use certain products to prepare the skin of your face.
    • Avoid certain dishes and beverages.
    • Quit smoking.

    Steps of Facelift

    In most cases, facelift surgery is performed in an outpatient facility. Your surgeon may need anywhere from 2 to 5 hours to complete the surgery, and you can usually return home the same day. Facelifts have evolved substantially in recent decades as plastic surgeons continue to gain a better understanding of the features of the face. In short, the steps of facelifts usually involve the following:

    1. Anesthesia

    Obviously, anesthesia administration is the initial stage in facelift surgery. Most surgeons prefer general anesthesia, but some surgeons may choose a mixture of local anesthetic and moderate sedatives.

    2. Incisions Making

    Your surgeon makes an incision behind your ear in the hairline. The incision runs at the front of the ear and continues to the top of the ear. Also, your surgeon may make a small incision on the crease beneath the chin to target this area.

    3. Repositioning of Muscles & Tissues

    To reposition and tighten the underlying muscle and connective tissue, your surgeon pushes the skin outward and removes some fat and excess skin. They may also suture the tissues with glue to secure them in their new location.

    4. Incisions Closure

    Finally, your surgeon uses tiny sutures to seal the wounds and facilitate healing.

    Recovery After Facelift

    The nurse will take you to a room for observation after finishing your facelift surgery. Once you’re stable after a couple of hours, you’ll be able to return home. The recovery phase may include:
    • To reduce swelling and bruising, the doctor will put a bandage around your face and tell you how to care for your incision site.
    • Your surgeon may write a prescription for painkillers to relieve your pain.
    • You may need two weeks before returning to your usual activities. 
    • Wait 4 weeks before engaging in more rigorous activities, such as exercise.
    • You can maintain the benefits of your facelift by avoiding the sunlight, applying moisturizer to your face, and consuming a well-balanced diet.

    Risks of Facelift

    Thankfully, complications and side effects of facelifts are uncommon, especially if a trained and experienced surgeon performed the surgery. However, like any other surgery, risks and complications are still feasible in some cases, and they may entail the following:

    • Anesthesia complications
    • Infection, bleeding, or bruising
    • Temporary damage to the facial nerves
    • Abnormal collections of blood (hematoma)
    • Asymmetry between the two sides of the face
    • Hair loss around the incision site
    • Death of skin tissue (skin necrosis)
    • Persistent numbness

      I would highly recommend this centre due to my excellent experience with my rhinoplasty surgery and everyone who was involved including the doctors, assistants, nurses and drivers. They are super friendly, helpful and understanding and available to contact whenever needed. I would especially like to thank Mr. Feras and Mr. Hashim for their help and support throughout the time of my surgery. The environment of both the hospital and the clinic was really clean and organised. Overall I had an outstanding experience and have no complaints.

      D: Halil Ibrahim is one of the best, very great doctors, wonderful and humane. The trip was successful under the leadership of Mr. Hashem, but I had a small blame on the nurses other than that. .Aicha Almalih 😘😉
