turn back the clock and restore the refreshed, youthful appearance With The Facelift Surgery

As we age, our body slows its natural production of collagen and elastin – two proteins that contribute to the underlying structure, quality and resiliency of your skin. Eventually, you lose volume in your face, resulting in deep wrinkles, jowls along the jawline and a “turkey neck” – loose, crepey skin under your chin and on your neck.

While all these issues are a completely natural part of growing older, it’s understandable that you may feel self-conscious about your aging face and neck. However, with a facelift performed by a board-certified cosmetic surgeon, you can turn back the clock and restore the refreshed, youthful appearance you enjoyed years ago, or even address premature signs of aging before they settle in.

What Is a Facelift?

During a facelift surgery, a qualified surgeon such as Dr. Pradeep Sinha will lift and firm the underlying facial muscles and remove excess skin, which smooths deep folds and leads to a tighter and more uplifted appearance.

According to WebMD, the best candidates for facelift surgery are people who have begun to show wrinkles, sagging skin and other signs of facial aging, but whose skin elasticity is still of good enough quality to allow them to bounce back from the procedure.

Additional factors that will influence your decision to get facelift surgery include:

  • Loose skin on your face and neck makes you feel self-conscious about the way you look
  • You wear clothing such as turtlenecks and scarves to mask your aging neck
  • When you see yourself in photos or in the mirror, your face makes you look much older than you feel
  • You are concerned that your aging appearance has begun negatively affecting your career or personal relationships

Choosing a great facelift surgeon

When you’re planning to get a facelift, the most important decision you have to make is which facelift surgeon you’re going to choose to perform the surgery. Choosing the right surgeon can very easily be the difference between you being delighted with the results, or wishing you never had it done.

Understanding Your Facelift Options

No two facelift patients are alike, both in terms of unique facial anatomy and surgical goals. That’s why there is no “cookie-cutter” approach to facelift surgery.

If you’re considering getting a facelift, the first thing you should know is that there are two types: a full facelift and a mid-facelift. Though both options involve the surgical removal of excess skin and the tightening of the facial muscles, a full facelift requires a longer incision and is a more extensive surgery. This type of facelift addresses the area just below the lower eyelid, the nasolabial folds and the jaw area.

If your primary concerns are sagging and wrinkling around your mouth and jawline, but you do not have sagging in your lower eyelid area, you may be a good candidate for a mid-facelift. During your consultation, you and your doctor can determine which type of facelift will suit your needs, or if a different procedure would be better for helping you meet your facial aesthetic goals.

How to Choose a Facelift Surgeon

Facelift surgery is a highly complex procedure that requires a thorough knowledge of facial anatomy and a specific skill set, in addition to a highly developed eye for aesthetic detail. Not all physicians who practice cosmetic surgery are trained to perform facelifts, which is one reason it’s so essential to do plenty of research before choosing a facelift surgeon.

Without a doubt, the most important factor in choosing a cosmetic surgeon to perform your facelift is board certification. That’s because anyone with a medical license is legally allowed to advertise their services as a plastic surgeon, even if their training and expertise is in a different branch of medicine.

Choosing a board-certified cosmetic surgeon will ensure you are working with a doctor who has specific hands-on experience in cosmetic surgery, including facelift techniques, and that your procedure will be performed in an accredited surgical facility.

When you are meeting with potential cosmetic surgeons, ask about their background: Where did they earn their degree? How long have they been in practice? Also, find out how many facelift procedures each has performed, and be sure to ask to see lots of before-and-after photos to help you get a feel for a cosmetic surgeon’s aesthetic approach.

If you are a male patient considering facelift surgery, ensure each cosmetic surgeon you interview has experience performing facelifts for male patients; since male and female facial anatomy are unique, men and women require different surgical approaches. Get more helpful tips on choosing a cosmetic surgeon from the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.

The Top 5 Benefits of Facelift Surgery

What can a facelift do for you? You may wish to consider facelift surgery if you have one or more of the following concerns.

1) You have significant skin laxity and sagging.
Younger people have plenty of the so-called “building blocks” of skin – collagen and elastin. Collagen acts like the scaffolding of your skin, while elastin is what gives it resiliency and firmness. However, as we age, our natural production of these two proteins diminishes significantly, leading to loose, drooping skin. During facelift surgery, your surgeon will remove this excess skin and tighten what remains, leaving you with a refreshed and youthful appearance.

2) You have deep facial creases and wrinkling.
Severe facial wrinkles may also result from lost collagen and elastin. By lifting the underlying tissue of the face, a facelift can lessen the look of the nasolabial folds or “parentheses lines” that form between the mouth and nose. Your skin will show fewer lines and creases as a result.

3) You have excess skin around your neck, chin and jawline.

Excess fat and skin often accumulate around the lower face and neck area among aging people, leading to the appearance of jowls and an overall lack of definition along the lower jaw. By tightening lax facial tissue, a facelift can significantly improve the appearance of your lower face, while providing enhanced contour and tone to your jawline and neck area.

4) You have significantly less facial volume and muscle tone than you used to.

A lack of volume and muscle tone – particularly in the mid-face area – is another consequence of the aging process. Lifting and tightening the underlying muscles provides them with a stronger foundation, as they will no longer be stretched out. This process will create a fuller and more youthful face.

5) You always look fatigued, sad or angry.

The combination of lax skin and deep-set wrinkles can make you look constantly tired, unhappy or upset, even if you’re normally a cheerful person. You may be projecting a message that you are unapproachable, which could cause others to avoid you due to your perceived mood. A facelift can soften your facial expressions by smoothing wrinkles and making your face appear more uplifted. Facelift surgery can help reveal your true self by showing the world how relaxed and happy you are on the inside.

Fast Facelift FAQs

If you still have concerns about getting a facelift, here are answers to some of the most frequently asked patient questions.

What is the ideal age for a facelift?

As cosmetic surgery becomes more common, there’s really no such thing as a “typical age” for a facelift anymore. People in their late 30s have facelifts, as do people in their 70s and every age in between. As long as your doctor determines your skin quality is sufficient, you can get this life-changing surgery.

What should I expect at my facelift consultation?

Your consultation is your opportunity for both you and the surgeon to ask each other a list of questions and get a feel for whether you can establish a solid partnership that will help you get your ideal surgical outcome. Be honest about why you think you need a facelift, then listen carefully while the surgeon gives you a realistic evaluation of what is possible. Bring photos of yourself from when you were younger to show how you used to look; that way, your surgeon can give you the most natural results possible. At your consultation, you and your surgeon will also discuss fees, anesthesia and any risks associated with a facelift procedure.

Recovery And Post Op

Following a facelift surgery, you’ll need to follow Dr. Sinha’s post op recovery advice in order for the healing process to go smoothly. Once the surgery is finished, the incisions on your face will be bandaged and some swelling is completely normal.

You will usually have a follow-up appointment with your surgeon the day after your facelift surgery so they can check that everything is healing as it should be and there are no unexpected problems.

Is facelift surgery safe?

In general, facelift surgeries have a long track record of safety and effectiveness. In fact, nearly 127,000 facelift procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2017 alone, according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Naturally, the more years of experience your surgeon has, the better your outcomes will be.

The most common facelift risks include a chance of infection, hematoma, nerve damage and resulting numbness, and permanent discolorations caused by the bruising. During your consultation, you will need to be up-front with your surgeon about your health history. If you have specific risk factors, you may not be qualified to get this surgery safely.

How much does facelift surgery cost?

According to 2017 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a facelift is $7,448. However, facelift costs can vary widely, based on factors such as where you live, surgeon’s fees, anesthesia fees, prescription medications, operating room costs and other related expenses. During your consultation, ask about all these separate expenses so you do not have any surprises on your final bill.

Will my health insurance cover any of the costs of my facelift?

Most health insurance policies do not consider a facelift surgery to be medically necessary, so they will not usually cover the costs. However, ask your chosen cosmetic surgeon if they offer any financing plans to allow you to pay for your surgery in installments, rather than in one up-front fee.

Are You A Good Candidate?

Facelifts are one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery performed today. They provide both men and women with an extremely effective way to combat the common signs of aging on the face. As we get older, our skin begins to sag and this can be a very undesirable thing to many people, especially when it starts affecting the appearance of their face.

What does the surgery entail?

A facelift operation is an outpatient surgery performed while you are under general anesthesia. It typically takes between three and five hours to perform; longer if you choose to have additional procedures performed at the same time. Your surgeon should place the incisions as inconspicuously as possible in areas such as your hairline or behind your ears. In the simplest possible terms, a facelift surgeon will loosen the facial skin from the underlying fat and muscle, tighten the muscles underneath, then re-drape the skin, trimming off excess tissue before suturing it into place.

How long is the recovery time?

The average recovery time for a full facelift is 10 to 14 days, while you can expect a slightly shorter recovery process for a mid-facelift. Your face will be swollen, sore, tender and probably bruised for several days. You will go home with your face bandaged, and you will need to wear these dressings for the first few days after surgery. Sutures are usually removed during the second week. Swelling will be at its worst about three days after surgery, and will begin to disappear within the first few weeks. Your doctor will send you home with specific post-operative instructions to minimize discomfort, bruising and swelling as much as possible. Following these directions to the letter is key to a smooth recovery process.

Will I have any scarring?

Scarring is a given with all surgery, but the incision lines from a facelift usually heal extremely well. As mentioned above, your surgeon will make the incisions in discreet areas, so they should be relatively unnoticeable once they heal fully.

Are there any activity restrictions to expect with this procedure?

You will need to rest and take it easy after your surgery. Depending on how extensive your facelift was and how strenuous your job is, you can expect to return to work about a week to 10 days after your surgery. If you still have some residual bruising at this point, you can conceal it with makeup. With your surgeon’s permission, you should be able to resume most of your normal daily routine after two to three weeks.

When will I be able to see the results of my facelift?

As your swelling subsides, you will begin noticing that your facial skin and underlying muscle appear firmer, usually within weeks of your surgery. Be patient, however, as it can take months for the final results to emerge.
