Facelift

Young people have smooth, round faces with a very toned skin due to evenly distributed fat in the fat compartments. Their bony contours are also very well defined. Over time due to UV damage to the skin from sun exposure, age and genetics the skin starts to change with a breakdown of collagen causing wrinkles and sagging. This causes prominence of lines below the eyes, on the sides of the nose, folds of skin over the chin, jawline, and neck. Face-Lift Surgery or a Rhytidectomy is a surgery to restore a more youthful appearance by removing major wrinkles and sagging skin. It involves tightening the facial and neck muscles as well as the removal of any excess skin. Not only does a rhytidectomy improve facial appearance but also has a dramatic effect on the neck, enhancing its contour and profile.

With facelift, the patient can look 5 to 10 years younger.

Face Lift Procedure

    A rhytidectomy is frequently performed in conjunction with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), forehead lift, chin augmentation, and/or liposuction, to create an overall rejuvenation of the face. The facelift procedure can be performed again as gravity continues its effects after the first surgery. Facial rejuvenation surgeries are performed in inpatient surgical centers. General anesthesia is commonly not required, but can be used for long procedures to help you relax and get a better result. Dr. Mohan Thomas will make incisions inside the hairline at the temple, in front of the ear, then around the earlobe and behind the ear, ending at the scalp area. Excess skin is detached, and drooping connective tissues and muscles are tightened. In some cases, deposits of fat are removed from under the chin and neck. Incisions are closed with small stitches. The procedure may take up to 2 - 4 hours depending on whether any other procedures are performed at the same time.

Recovery from facelift surgery: What to expect

    Initially, you will have a large dressing around your head. You may have surgical drains coming out from your neck. These will be removed in approximately 24 hours. Stitches around the ears will be loosened or removed in a couple of days. The scalp stitches will be removed in 7 - 10 days. To diminish scarring, the doctor may remove the sutures in stages. Scarring fades quickly. Swelling and discoloration usually decrease within two weeks. Tightness in your face will be felt for several weeks.

    We recommend that you avoid sun exposure for several weeks after surgery. Complications following facelift are rare. These include bleeding, facial nerve injury, infection, discoloration of the skin, asymmetry, numbness, and scarring. Chances of infection are rare due to the large blood supply to the face. As stated, the likelihood of bleeding is greater if you take aspirin or blood thinners within 2 weeks of the surgery. The risk of complications is higher in diabetics, persons with a history of radiation, autoimmune, and collagen disease as well as in smokers.

    During the initial weeks following surgery, the facial skin and area around the ear may remain numb. There may also be some temporary discoloration as the healing process begins, which may take a few months to disappear. Occasionally, the facial nerve gets bruised during the course of the surgery, resulting in temporary loss of function. However, permanent damage to the facial nerve is rare. The healing process is gradual, so you will not notice final results for a few weeks. A single procedure often achieves the desired results. Most patients who have had facelifts are pleased with their new, youthful looks.

Modified facelift in combination with endoscopic surgery of the brows and minimal surgery in the chin/neck area can give a youthful appearance but, it may not be as dramatic as a full face neck lift. The recovery time for such a procedure is just a week and is a daycare procedure with the patient going back home in the evening.

The possible complications in a facelift are as follows-

  • Since this is a very technique sensitive surgery, complications may occur sometimes.
  • Facial nerve damage is a complication which can occur when there is an injury to the facial nerve branches. Most of the times, the palsy was seen because of injury to the nerve is transient, and patients do recover from such events.
  • A hematoma is one of the complications where the blood gets collected and below the skin.
  • These complications are not uncommon, and the expertise of the surgeon depends on how well such complications are handled.
