As the effects of ageing set in, we all dread looking at the mirror as the image that stares back at us, is not very appealing. The dark spots, pigmentation, sagging chin, wrinkles, etc., are not something we want to admire. Almost everybody wishes to turn back time and go back to youthful, glowing skin. With this constant urge to look and feel young, cosmetic surgery has made significant advancements to restore youthful looks. One such advancement is rhytidectomy or known as facelift in layman terms.
What is it? In its current form, it does more than just remove wrinkles. It includes a combination of multiple surgeries and exercise routines, which are aimed at restoring a youthful appearance. The surgeries are aimed at removal of excess facial skin that causes the sagging, may include tightening the underlying connective tissues which are responsible for the firmness of the skin, and redraping of the skin over the face again. This is followed by an exercise regimen that continues to improve the tone of the facial muscles.
Types of facelifts: Though facelifts are advised for people above 50 years of age, depending on patient requirements, it could be done even in younger people. The type of facelift depends on the problem that is being corrected. Some of the common types are:
- SMAS: This is used to lift the layer of tissue under the skin which eliminates sagging in the facial and neck area.
- MACS: This technique is useful when there is mild sagging around the neck area.
- Full facelift: Reduces ageing effects from all regions of the face.
- Mid facelift: Sagging of the cheek area, flattening of the nasolabial folds, and eyelid surgery are done to improve the appearance of a face that is flat around the cheek area.
- Thread lift: Sagging in the eye, forehead, etc., can be corrected by inserting a thread and literally pulling up the underlying tissue.
Plan for recovery: Depending on the extent of surgery, facelifts require considerable time to recover. It is advisable to plan for this, be it time off from work or household activities. It is important to give sufficient time for complete recovery.
Time for results to show up: Initially, there would be significant bruising, discomfort, and swelling. These will subside over a week to 10 days but bear in mind that for the actual result to show up, it could even take up to 6 months.
Surgeon’s Experience: Choosing a right surgeon is extremely essential, as an inexperienced surgeon can do more harm than good. Have a detailed discussion and set the right expectations to avoid disappointment.
If the ageing effects are really bothering you, go ahead and get a facelift.
