Facelift surgeries, also known as a rhytidectomy, have improved in recent years and are highly effective at creating a youthful appearance. This corrects visible signs of aging that are present on the face and neck by restoring contours that have been lost over time. Facelifts reduce sagging in the middle of the face, lift fallen fat, corrects deep creases, and improves loss of skin tone in the lower portion of the face by redraping the skin.

Candidates for facelifts are adults who are in good health and take care of their skin. The average cost of a facelift is $3,500 to $20,000 in USA, UK, and Australia. Mini-facelifts are also a common type of cosmetic surgery and are less invasive.

How Do Facelift Procedures Work?

Facelift surgery should be performed by a physician who has a high level of knowledge in facial anatomy. We work with highly skilled physicians who have received the proper education and training to perform facelifts. The exact technique that is used is specific to the individual's needs with their facial structure. General anesthesia is used before the procedure begins. The plastic surgeon makes incisions around the front of the ears to separate the skin from underlying muscles and tissue. The physician begins to reposition the facial tissues and remove the jowls that have developed. Excess skin is then removed with the remaining skin is placed back over the tissues. There may also be extra fat that is also removed at the same time. This allows the skin to appear taut and smooth with less wrinkles present. Dressing will then be applied to face to protect the areas where incisions were made. Facelifts take an average of two to four hours to complete.

The recovery process after a facelift involves two weeks of rest. Bruising and swelling can be expected, but should begin to heal two weeks after the surgery is performed. Exposure to the sun should be avoided because the skin is more vulnerable to burning during the recovery process. Medication will be prescribed to alleviate discomfort or pain that is experienced. Cold compresses may also be used to reduce the amount of inflammation that is present. Staples or sutures that are used will be removed within five to 10 days.

Patients who undergo facelifts can expect to continue aging after the surgery is performed, but they will still look years younger due to the effectiveness of the procedure
