There are few things that can affect a person’s self-esteem more than not being happy with their face. While there are serums and creams that help the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sometimes we have to go a step further to get what we want. In those cases, we look to a Facelift (rhytidectomy).
A facelift will reshape the bottom part of your face, by removing excess skin. By removing that excess skin, a facelift gives your face a more youthful appearance. It can also tighten loose skin around the jawline known as jowls.
With over 100,000 women and 13,000 men in the USA getting facelifts in 2016 alone, it is a very popular procedure.
In addition, a facelift can also help tighten the sagging appearance of cheeks, the deepening fold from the side of your nose to the corner of your mouth (marionette lines) and the sagging skin beneath your chin on your neck.
In the lead up to your surgery, you will receive instructions from your doctor. Some will be with regard to any medications you take. Some, like blood thinners, will need to be discontinued in the run-up to your procedure. Make sure to inform your doctor of any and all medications you take.
After the procedure, you will likely feel some moderate pain, and some draining from the incisions. This is normal, and to be expected. You should also expect certain levels of swelling, bruising, and numbness.
Your doctor and nurses will also provide you with information to ensure your comfort while you recover. These are important and are to be followed.
