Facelifts have become as commonplace as a visit to the doctor. But most people do not always know everything about this treatment option and, even though many will say they’d like to try this rejuvenation method out once or twice, it is best to truly know the ins and outs of the procedure. One may wonder what kind of advantages and disadvantages are noted. Some may wonder if facial injections are expensive, while others want to know the reputation and effectiveness of the doctor and their staff. In short, if someone wants to have work done on their face, he or she should really determine if the procedure is right for them.
A rhytidectomy, otherwise called a facelift, is obviously a type of cosmetic surgery whose principle is to diminish the effects – normal and biological – of collagen (skin) collapse. Generally, it is the cheekbones and the cheeks that are most affected by this natural phenomenon. But of course, all patients wanting to get a facelift usually have different needs and desires, and that is why the cosmetic surgical field provides treatments to people with varied situations.
The lifting of the temporal region is made towards the corner of the eye, not far from the cheekbone. A cervicofacial lift allows people to say goodbye to their jowls and to give their neck some structure. Mask lifts are more popular because they completely alter the patient’s appearance, changing the shape of the cheekbones, or even the axis of their eyes. Frontal lifting deals with forehead skin, which it enhances, like the muscles that reign there.
To be able to undergo a facelift, the doctor should first consider that there are different elements involved: the condition of the skin, but also the person’s face, and the reasons why they decided to get a facelift, and how the skin recovers according to different manipulations. Depending on the facelift chosen, you will be under local or general anesthesia, and most of the time the hospitalization does not exceed forty-eight hours. But folks should know that a full recovery usually takes three good weeks. You will not see the results right away, especially since the face will be swollen and/or bruised. It is important to know this so as not to be shocked right after the operation.
