Surgeons today usually operate patients over 40 years, although many people are considering this type of surgery even when they are younger.
It is important not start young because according to studies, every six years would be submitting to such operations. Be realistic and discussed with your doctor if a face lift Procedure is right for you depending on your age. It is also important to know how this procedure and the risks is performed. This an important question to know everything that will make the surgeon in your face. Some doctors may do a facelift with general anesthesia and others use local anesthesia. In a simple facelift, an incision is made on one side of the face, usually from temple to one side of the ear and then behind it.
The doctor then carefully separates the skin and tissue under the skin (subcutaneous tissue) and removes excess fat and tissue. Then, the remaining skin is pulled back and sewn in place. The same is done on the other side of the face. There are other more complicated face lift Procedures that require more work to deeper muscle and tissue level. Likewise, to stretch the front, an incision near where you start the hairy body and eliminate double chin makes an incision under the chin. As with any surgical procedure, a facelift can have complications that include: bleeding or excessive bleeding, infection, nerve damage problems related to anesthesia and problematic healing. In this case, it is important that the doctor knows your medical history well, for which it will make a series of questions and studies before surgery. If you have had a history of keloid scarring (lumpy scar), I do not agree this surgery.
It is normal to feel some stiffness in the face and even lose some sensitivity. There may also be itching (itching) in the place where the points where the wound is closed. Points are usually removed after a week, but taking 2-3 weeks for the bruising (bruises) and swelling are reduced. The total recovery time is estimated at 1-2 months, but this is not absolute since it depends on your overall health, skin elasticity and hereditary factors. Tell your doctor to show you pictures of people who have this type of healing and this will help you better understand the dimensions of this risk. After the face lift Procedures, it is necessary to drain the blood that runs under the skin to minimize the risk of infection.
Something that is essential is to make sure that the plastic surgeon who will perform the procedure is a qualified, experienced person, who is also the anesthesiologist and the site where they will perform the procedure is equipped with everything needed if that there is some complication, as always hope that everything goes smoothly, but it is always better safe than sorry.
