A facelift is a rejuvenation procedure performed to reduce signs of facial ageing. It removes surplus, excessive skin from the face and neck, and enhances the underlying facial tissues to restore facial contours. The facelift procedure is carried out to restore a youthful, smoother and glowing appearance to the face, without altering the basic characteristics of the patient. It helps in reducing the facial wrinkles, loose skin, jowls and age-related volume loss associated with the aging process.

Why is Facelift done?

Aging is one of the primary reasons behind facial changes and its effect on your face. Through the years, time begins to take a toll on your facial appearance; the skin loses its elasticity, leading to wrinkles and jowls. Facelift surgery allows you to remove the unwanted signs of aging and take back the youthful fresh skin. The main aim of the facelift procedure is to restore the facial contour and reduce wrinkles, sagging skin, and jowls with minimal downtime.

A facelift surgery is often combined with other surgical procedures like eyelid surgery, neck lift, forehead lift and nasal surgery. This helps in creating more balance and harmony on the face and achieves a more natural look.

What is the Recovery Process Like After a Facelift?

The recovery time after facelift surgery varies from one individual to another. Immediately after the surgery, you will experience swelling and bruising along with minor pain, which can be managed with antibiotics and painkillers as per the doctor’s instructions. Generally, within two weeks, one will be ready to resume normal daily activities, although strenuous exercises should be avoided for a few more weeks. It is also important to wear sunscreen to protect your post-op skin from the sun’s damaging rays and to follow the doctor’s aftercare instructions carefully.

Are There Any Potential Risks or Complications Associated with Facelifts?

Like any surgery, the facelift procedure carries certain risks and potential complications such as:

  • Scarring
  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Loss of sensation in the treatment area
  • Skin irregularities, lumpiness or uneven healing

These risks can be minimized with an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon. Our highly skilled Dr. Prajwal K Rao has years of experience in performing facelift surgery and emphasizes the use of safe techniques to minimize risks.

How Long Do the Results of a Facelift Typically Last?

The results of a facelift can last upto 10 years or longer with the right aftercare. However, one should bear in mind that aging is natural and can’t be reversed or stopped. So, it is possible that with age, wrinkles may appear again due to the effects of gravity and the skin’s inability to retain its elasticity.

Also, proper lifestyle practices like not smoking, regular exercise, and proper sun protection can help you maintain beautiful and youthful results for a longer period of time.
