What is Facelift Surgery?

Technically known as a rhytidectomy, face lift reverses the effects of age, gravity, genetics and sun damage, among others. It reshapes or contours the lower two-thirds of the face. The upper one third of the face is usually rejuvenated by brow lift or forehead lift and eyelid surgery.

Facelift surgery when combined with an eyelid surgery along with a brow lift or forehead lift, rejuvenates the entire face. When combined with other procedures such as rhinoplasty or chin and cheek augmentation, a facelift gives altogether a new and fresh look. The double chin can also be removed at the same time by liposuction.

Facelift rejuvenates the face by improving the signs of aging such as:

  • Mid-face sagging
  • Lower eyelid creases
  • Creases extending along the nose to the corner of the mouth
  • Excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw
  • Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease

Am I a good Candidate?

If you feel that your face looks tired and excessively old as a result of sagging, drooping and excessive facial creases, or have a slack jaw and neck line, or if you have any of the below mentioned problems, you may be a candidate for face lift. You should be in good physical health, physically and emotionally stable and have realistic expectations from the surgery.

  • Lines running from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth
  • Wrinkles, extra fat or loose skin in the neck.
  • Wrinkles or loose and sagging skin in the cheeks or near the cheekbones
  • Do not have a well-defined jawline

Type of Facelift Procedures?

There are a number of facelift options available in India to suit your needs. Some of them are listed below:

Standard or Traditional Facelift: Done under general anesthesia, this procedure is suitable for people looking for a complete facelift. It targets the larger area of the face and addresses various problems of ageing like sagging skin, lines around the mouth and creases around the eyes, jowls, fat on the face, etc.

Mini Facelift: It is less invasive and more focused on the lower cheeks, the jaw regions of the face, and the neck. Advantage of a mini face lift is that it causes less scarring (sometimes called short-scar facelift), swelling, pain and recovery time is less and the cost is also lesser than the cost of a traditional face lift.

Superficial Muscular Apo-neurotic System (SMAS) Facelift: This technique concentrates and tightens the deeper underlying tissue, the SMAS layer. It is a rather complex and extensive procedure. It lifts and tightens the cheeks, jowls, and the neck.

Minimal-access cranial Suspension (MACS) Facelift: It is one of the safest and most popular face lifting techniques. The procedure improves the jawline and excess jowling along with improving the grooves and lines running between the mouth and the nose. It also targets the saggy skin and wrinkles near the cheek bones.

One can also opt for additional procedures like blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, facial implants, or fat transfers for more enhanced facial results. Our skilled plastic surgeons will guide you about what procedure you should opt for achieving your individual goals and optimizing the results.

How is Facelift done?

Step 1

An incision is made at the temples above the hairline and follows it in front of the ear, extending the incision behind the earlobe in the natural crease.

Step 2

The surgeon then separates the tissue and the muscles, trims or removes the fat and then tightens the underlying muscles.

Step 3

He then tightens the deep muscles, pulls up the excess skin above it backwards, trims it and stitches it back.

What is the Recovery after Facelift like?

It is normal to have mild pain and discomfort for a few days after the surgery which can be managed with pain medications.

Your plastic surgeon shall advise you to wear a bandage on the face to avoid any clot formation, which shall be removed after a week along with the stitches.

You can resume routine activities and light exercises in about two weeks, and strenuous work and exercises after six weeks.

What Results Can I Expect from Facelift?

The results of the face lift are quite gratifying. You shall get smooth and taut skin on your face and neck which shall make you look younger and fresher than before.

The face lift is usually able to turn the clock back on your face by 8 to 15 years, depending on the procedure you require.

I recently traveled to Mumbai for a lower body lift and breast lift. As an American nurse living in Saudi Arabia I was apprehensive at first and did months of research. I chose IndiCure because of Dr. Jagannathan. I traveled alone and spent almost 3 weeks there undergoing 2 separate procedures. I was pleasantly surprised. The surgeries both went flawless. All of the hospital staff was amazing. Read Michelle Williams's Review About IndiCure Here
