Configuring Contours with Competence and Expertise
Because of the impact of gravity, sun exposure, heredity, and other pressures, wrinkles and loose, sagging skin appear on the face as people age. By addressing apparent indications of aging, a facelift can make men and women look younger and “turn back the clock.” A facelift involves the removal of extra skin, tightening of underlying tissue, and repositioning of soft tissue in the face and neck. With the best infrastructure and personnel, Medica’s team of skilled cosmetic and reconstructive surgeons makes our patients’ dreams into reality. Our surgeons are skilled and experienced in using the most up-to-date techniques to give our patients the finest possible results.
What Really Happens to Your Skin?
Because of heredity and lifestyle, aging manifests itself early in life. Changes in our facial appearance are caused by both internal and external forces. Dry, flaky skin replaces once-smooth skin. Dyschromia appears as brown and red patches, as well as damaged capillaries. Collagen, a protein found deep within the skin, gives structure, while elastic fibers offer tone. As we age, our structure and tone deteriorate. Fat pads become misplaced and feeble as the fat beneath the skin (subcutaneous fat) thins, and bone thins.
The end consequence is a sagging and deflated appearance. The oval-shaped face of youth is replaced by deep lines of facial expression, jowls, cheek hollows, and a turkey neck.

The Advantages of a Facelift
There are surgical and minimally invasive methods available to restore a more youthful appearance while preserving the patient’s personality.
Facelift surgery, as done by our expert surgeons, gently turns back the clock, giving you a younger, healthier appearance while restoring youthful features that are essential for a beautiful, natural-looking you.
Who is Eligible?
A facelift may be the answer if you’ve noticed indicators of facial aging such as cheek deflation, jowl development, skin laxity, or simply notice you’re appearing weary or melancholy. Our doctors will assess your condition and discuss face rejuvenation alternatives with you during the initial visit.
Basically, a facelift surgery essentially constitutes tightening of the skin and supporting underlying soft tissues which have sagged owing to aging and gravity with imperceptible scarring. Overnight hospital stay is generally required. Smokers and patients on anticoagulants have to stop consuming them for at least a week prior to surgery. Smoking is prohibited for three weeks during the postoperative period to facilitate healing. The common complications are bleeding and nerve injuries.
What Happens in Facelift Surgery?
Patients are given pain and relaxation medications, as well as tumescent local numbing medicine. Although many patients report little to no pain, you will be given a prescription for home pain medication during the early postoperative period.
After one week, you may return to work. However, post-operative bruising and swelling commonly last for two weeks. As a result, schedule a one- or two-week period before any significant social gathering. It should take about 4-6 weeks for you to fully recover. Each patient may experience a different level of recovery.
The length of time it takes to recuperate following a facelift is mostly determined by the treatment itself. You’ll start to feel better in 7-14 days, and most people recover in 30 days.
Facelifts are generally regarded as safe, and complications are uncommon. And the complications that may arise (if they arise) are common with any major surgical procedure where you have to go under. The following are some of the possible adverse effects:
- Hematoma i.e., it’s a blood clot that forms outside of a blood vessel.
- Hair loss in the location of the incision
- Anesthesia-related side effects
- Blood clotting
What are you taking away?
Facelift surgery has more advantages than only physical ones.
- Many satisfied patients report an increase in self-assurance.
- Then comes a boost in self-esteem.
- Patients have stated that they are “happier” and that they are looking and feeling their “best.”
- Many people stated that it improved their quality of life.
A brow lift and eyelid surgery to revitalize aged eyes are two more operations that may be performed in conjunction with a facelift. To replace the lost fatty volume, fat transfer or fillers may be recommended.
