Do you want to look ten years younger? Are you tired of wrinkles appearing on your face? Here is one of the problems of this century, the aging of the skin. With the yield in life expectancy, today it's a whole generation that is mulling over with the problem of wrinkles.
Brands of all kinds rush to boast the merits of the latest product in fashion however, one of the most effective treatments of facial wrinkles is the facelift or cervicofacial lift.
The facelift procedure
With age, the skin loses its elasticity and wrinkles, eventually widening, making your face more tired and dull. The effects of time are visible on your face in your thirties and become more pronounced during your life.
In your fifties, you notice a significant loosening of the facial skin, your features are then marked by an excess of fat especially on the cheeks. The oval of your face is therefore less clear and the jowls start to appear.
As of the sixties, the whole face loosens. You will notice more prominent jowls, your neck begins to look like a turkey neck and the whole of your face loses its oval.
Today, the cervicofacial lift makes it possible to correct the damage of time. It treats facial sagging and allows you to look ten years younger. Indeed, the face lift tightens your skin at the level of face and neck. This procedure can restore physical and psychological well-being in people who are very affected by aging.
Cervico-facial lifting: how the procedure works
A first consultation is systematically performed before a procedure of cosmetic surgery. This is the opportunity for your doctor to know more about your expectations and your needs. They will also examine your face as a whole and adapt your treatment to your morphology.
Each surgeon has their own method of face lifting. Nevertheless, some basic steps will always be taken to contribute to the smooth running of the procedure:
- The surgeon makes incisions in your temples
- Then extends them along the face to form a "U". These incisions are located as close as possible to the ears in order to be as invisible as possible
- Then, removes excess skin and redrapes your skin
- At the end of the procedure, applies a compressive (pressure) dressing around your head and you will have to keep it during your night at the clinic
After the procedure, you will notice the appearance of edema and bruises on your face. These will disappear after a few days. You may experience some pain, but it can be relieved by taking analgesics.
Facelift: anaesthesia, duration, hospitalisation
A cervicofacial lift can be done under general anesthesia and usually requires one night of hospitalization. This intervention lasts between one and two hours.
Facelift: before/after results
The facelift dramatically improves the appearance of the face. The re-tightening of the various anatomical structures (skin, muscles, fat) of the face and neck allows the patient to find their appearance from ten years ago.
After two to three months, the mirror already shows a good picture of what the final result will be. The scars, still a little pink, fade towards the sixth month. The face has a relaxed and refreshed look.
The result must be visible while being discreet with well camouflaged scars, an intact earlobe, a smooth skin restoration without creases and especially no aesthetic incongruities that catch the eye.
A facelift usually lasts ten to twelve years. A second procedure can be done after this time, but it is not necessary in most cases. Indeed, the facelift will not prevent the normal aging of the skin.
