A Facelift Surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is used for creating a more youthful facial look. This procedure can effectively reduce sagging skin on the forehead, cheeks and jawline while fixing other facial changes that come with age.
The natural process of ageing causes facial tissues to lose their elasticity which the skin gets loose and wrinkles start appearing on the face. The soft facial tissue, the fascia (SMAS) that supports it, and the connected ligaments start stretching as their elasticity is lost. The drooping tissue as well as the loosening skin that surrounds the cheeks creates sort of a hollow look at the front of cheekbones. This leads to the formation of wrinkles, double chin, or deepened nasolabial lines.
Depending on the skin condition of an individual and the effect of ageing on their appearance, a facelift surgery that tightens the SMAS layer, muscles and removal of excess skin may be needed to create a younger look.
Facelift surgery is recommended for individuals with:
The Endotine Facelift surgery uses a dissolvable implant for effectively elevating and fixating soft tissue at a desired position. The implant is affixed at various contact points. It can effectively fix wrinkles and any sagging skin issues. In addition, the procedure can help with even tissue distribution to restore those youthful facial contours.
The Endotine Facelift surgery is recommended for the treatment of mild-to-moderate skin laxity problems targeting mid-face, neck, forehead, cheek, and jowls. The procedure can be helpful in smoothing wrinkles, crepey skin texture that results from uneven fat tissue distribution, and lighten nasolabial folds. It can also improve one’s facial contours. Post-procedure bruising and swelling usually subsides in 7-10 days and the patients can start their routine activities in 14 days time.
This Facelift procedure helps with mid-facial skin laxity problems and leaves minimal scars behind. Individuals who start exhibiting droopy jowls, had previously undergone lifting procedures, or wish to have quicker post-procedure healing are the best candidates for Mini Facelift surgery.
Unlike other traditional procedures, mini facelift surgery uses short-scar endoscopic facelift method to vertically reposition any underlying muscles as well as the fat tissue in mid-face. This facelift surgery can give a youthful look to the patients’ cheeks and brows while improving their mid-face contours. It also eliminates any hollowness that is caused by tissue migration. Depending on the patient’s condition, additional fat grafting surgery may be needed for plumping up any areas with volume loss to achieve a more rejuvenated look.
Generally, it takes 10-14 days for bruising and swelling to subside. Patients can return to their daily activities in 3 weeks time.
An incision is made behind the hairline, allowing the surgeon to access the soft tissues around the mid-face area.
Sutures are used to correct the position of the loose tissues and fat pads before they are anchored to the deep temporal fascia.
The incision is closed with sutures and they remain hidden behind the hairline. Cheek area appears rejuvenated and lifted.
The traditional facelift surgery is a comprehensive procedure that can address several ageing problems. It helps rejuvenate all the areas between the patient’s forehead and neck, bringing about long lasting results to make people look 5-10 years younger, at least. A full facelift is recommended to patients with serious skin laxity issues, excessive facial skin, deep facial creases, or uneven distribution of the subcutaneous tissue. This surgical procedure is also advised when minimal results are achieved from any other facelift surgery methods used previously.
