The Face-Lift is one of the most well-known cosmetic procedures, and for good reason.
It’s one of the most rewarding plastic surgeries for both the patient and the physician, in terms of its power to reverse the effects of aging on the face and to restore the spirit of the individual. A face-lift removes excess fat and skin, tightens the underlying muscles, and re-drapes the skin of the face and neck. A full face-lift surgery can have a dramatic impact on someone who feels they have lost their youthful glow.
For some people, a mini-facelift is all that’s needed to turn back the clock several years.The procedure is generally performed under general anaesthesia taking upto 3 hrs . An overnight hospital stay is recommended. A light dressing will be applied over your face with two small drains on each side. The dressing and the drains will be removed the next morning.
A compression band will be applied which has to be worn for 24 hours during the first 10 days and then at night. You will be given pain medication to ease your pain. You will experience numbness and swelling over the operated which will resolve in the next few weeks.
