Face Lift for a Youthful and Beautiful Face
Some people experience aging sooner or more markedly than
other people, and in Western Society, aging is sometimes considered to be less attractive as well. That is to say
that most people are not excited to see that their faces are becoming a little wrinkled and droopy, that the cheeks
and the chin are not as full as they used to be, or that the sun and other natural causes have left their mark on
the skin in the form of spots, scars, or discolorations. So many people are
searching for ways to find that bit of youth again or improve their beauty either by using skin care or cosmetic
surgery; many turn to the fantastic results that a face lift can offer. Face lift is a form of anti aging
The face lift is a tool that plastic surgeons use to help people fight their signs
of aging. The medical term for such a surgery is called Rhytidectomy, and is becoming more and more popular as the
population begins to age.
Face lift Procedure
Basically, a surgeon with plastic surgery experience and an eye for art will be
able to remove what excess skin and tissues are drooping, sculpt the remaining tissues, and redrape the skin in a
lifted position, so that the individual looks much younger than before. Often, this procedure is done with a local
or general anesthesia, and can be done as an outpatient hospital procedure.
What incisions need to be made to lift the skin and remove tissues are generally
placed in a site that will allow what scarring may occur to be hidden within natural folds of the face, in the
hairline, or other places that are fairly undetectable.
Face lift Contraindications
It may be difficult for a person with poor elasticity of the skin to undergo a
successful face lift. If there is not extra skin available, the result may end up that the person has a permanent
“wide-eyed” look. Aspirin, blood thinning medication, and some acne medication can also be contraindicative for
Face lift Price
A full face lift can cost a person quite a bit of money, about $7,000 - $9,000
with all things considered. However, some people opt for the face lift a bit at a time: beginning with the brows,
or perhaps working with the skin underneath the chin. However, each doctor offering this particular treatment may
charge a different amount of money.
Face lift Complications
There are always going to be risks when an individual goes through a surgical
procedure, and these will generally include things such as infection, allergy to anesthesia, overcorrection of the
surgery, and damage to facial nerves. However, these seem to be minimal for most patients. Many, however, will feel
tightness in the face, some swelling and sensitivity for some days following the face lift procedure.
If you experience serious or painful symptoms, your Physician will prescribe you an appropriate treatment to
fight against these health issues.
