Facelift Surgery Candidates
Most facelift candidates are adults over the age of 40. This is the age where sagging skin truly begins to become a problem. That said, as long as your health is stable, this procedure can be performed at almost any age, even well into the 70-80s. Following a facelift, you will continue to experience facial aging, but the effects will be far less pronounced. You will continue to look younger than you would if the procedure had not been performed.
Facelift Surgery Procedure
A facelift is typically performed under general anesthesia, but can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation if you prefer. You may be a day patient or require an overnight stay in a post-surgical facility afterward. This procedure can be combined with other procedures such as liposuction of the neck, fat grafting, and more.
Movement of the deeper tissues gives a longer-lasting result, with less tension and pulling on the skin. For most patients a “sub-periosteal” technique may be the best method for a achieving a good result. This technique involves lifting all the soft tissues upwards on the cheekbones and tightening the neck muscles.
Bulky dressing must be worn on your head and neck for 24-48 hours after your surgery. You can expect some bruising of the face and neck for about 2-3 weeks afterward. Temporary weakness of facial movements is common during this period.
In most cases, facial swelling will settle within the first 5-7 days. Your facial skin will remain numb for about three months as the tiny branches of the sensory nerves in the skin are cut when the skin is undermined. A facelift can be repeated after 5-10 years if needed.
