What is a Facelift?
A facelift is a cosmetic surgery that eradicates the signs of growing older on the lower portion of a person’s face. It hides wrinkles and fine lines, lifts up sagging skin and even removes fat from the face.
The Best Candidate for a Facelift
Facelifts are usually performed on people between the ages of 40 to 60. Both men and women receive facelifts to reduce sagging skin, tighten the skin around their jawlines and increase the elasticity of their skin. When you get a facelift, you won’t look drastically different, just younger.
The Facelift Procedure
Most facelifts are performed as outpatient procedures and are often done in a doctor’s office. Some people prefer to have them in a hospital or an outpatient surgery center. The procedure takes about two hours. The length of time and location you choose for your procedure will be determined by the extensiveness of the work you are having done.
The Facelift Recovery
Most people experience a bit of fatigue right after their facelift. About four days after the procedure they tend to get their energy back, but it is still suggested that they take it easy. Most people find that speaking, eating and drinking present some difficulties for a few days post-procedure.
It can take up to a few months to completely heal. Your general health before the procedure will influence your recovery time. Patients that take the time to rest after the procedure find their healing time is shortened. Even if you are feeling energetic, the doctor recommends against any strenuous activities for at least three months.
A facelift is a safe and practical way to fight the signs of aging and return your skin to its beautiful, youthful state.
