Facelift is a surgery in which the most visible effects of ageing are reduced.As people age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, and the stresses of daily life can be seen in their faces. Deep creases form between the nose and mouth; the jawline grows slack and jowly; folds and fat deposits appear around the neck. A face lift can correct the most obvious effects of the aging process by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping the skin of your face and neck. A facelift can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping. The most common question in regards to a fact lift is how long it will last? This is impossible to state, as there are many factors involved – the amount of skin removed; age and general condition of the patient; type of the skin as well as its condition and texture; amount of previous sun and wind exposure as well as healing ability. Skin aging continues after this operation, even though the excess skin and wrinkles have been removed. On rare occasions, a minor secondary procedure may be advisable. The operation does not stop the aging process. A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical treatment to reduce many of the signs of facial aging. This very popular procedure is designed to tighten and lift loose and sagging skin, muscle, and fatty tissue for a more youthful and refreshed appearance. The most common facial areas that people desire to be improved are the jowls along the jawline, the folds that develop around the nose and the mouth, and excess skin and fat and folds in the neck area. Facelift surgery does not “stop the clock” – we all continue to age, and our facial appearance is controlled by factors such as genetics, health, weight changes, smoking, and environmental exposures. However, by correcting many or most of the sagging and skin looseness changes, facelift surgery can be an excellent rejuvenation option enjoyed by many patients. For some, however, their concerns are predominantly the fine wrinkling and irregular pigmentation that sometimes affects the aging face – these changes are not affected by facelift surgery, but are improved by other approaches such as chemical peels. Incisions for facelift surgery are typically placed along the hairline and in discreet areas near the temples and the ears, so any residual scarring should be virtually invisible to others. The treatment can typically be performed as a day-procedure. There is a recovery process; however, it will differ with each patient. DR Gang prefers to do the face lift by MACS technique which is safe and gives better results and speedy recovery.
