Generally, it corrects the sagging facial skin and muscles and even restores firmness for creating a youthful look.

The procedure of Facelift surgery

There are three main types of facelift surgery; traditional surgery, keyhole surgery, and many other techniques. You will need to talk to your surgeon to know which process is best for you. With this simple and effective technique, one can easily achieve a balanced and rejuvenated look. The procedure is considered a day case and it is performed under local anesthesia. The whole procedure takes three to five hours. However, the time can increase depending on the type of surgery the patient opts for.

How is Facelift surgery done?

The surgeon makes a surgical incision along the hairline, into the hairline to the far side of the ears, and down past the front of the ears. The incisions are done carefully so that the scars get hidden by the natural crease of the face or by your hair. Once the incision is made, the surgeon remains careful in separating the skin as well as the underlying tissue before repositioning the fat and firming the facial muscles. The skin is then lifted and sutured into place. The excess is removed and the face is strapped in bandages to prevent infection.

It is the basic procedure of facelift surgery. However, depending on the type of facelift surgery one chooses, the process will vary. To know the types, consult a surgeon today!
