What is a Facelift?
A facelift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that is performed to reduce the signs of facial aging. The facelift is considered a fairly extensive surgery and does feature some downtime. Facelifts have been used to address:
- Sagging skin
- Extensive wrinkling
- Nasolabial folding
- Fine lines
- Loss of facial volume
There are several different types of facelifts, each designed to target a different area of the face. Types of facelifts include:
- SMAS lift
- Deep-plane facelift
- Thread lift
- MACS facelift
- Composite facelift
The facelift is often referred to as a form of facial rejuvenation. The facelift is a major form of this type of procedure. Small amounts of wrinkling or lines may be better suited to a more subtle procedure.
How Does a Facelift Work?
Facelifts are most frequently performed in a hospital setting, as the procedure itself may take several hours. While the different types of facelifts vary slightly, the surgery itself is generally very similar.
During a facelift:
- Anesthesia is administered, typically through both an IV and local injections
- An incision is made that runs from the temples of the head to the ears
- The skins is “lifted”, tightening the muscle and tissue in the face simultaneously
- Excess skin or fat may be removed
- The incision is closed
The facelift incision is designed to avoid visibility through the hairline. Facelift recovery does take some time, due to the lengthy nature of the procedure. Many people elect to stay in a hospital overnight. Day-to-day activity is typically viable after 2 - 3 weeks.
