Over the years, facial features gradually change as a result of natural age-related changes. Depending on heredity, individual anatomical features and lifestyle, the first signs of aging appear earlier for some, and later for others. At a certain moment, the reflection in the mirror ceases to please: the face loses its youth and freshness, its oval can become indistinct, pronounced wrinkles and a flabby chin appear, and the cheeks sink. When age-related changes can no longer be corrected with the help of cosmetic procedures, plastic surgery comes to the rescue. A circular facelift (facelift) allows you to cope with the problem of soft tissue prolapse and correct even pronounced wrinkles.
A facelift, or facelift, is a surgical procedure aimed at removing wrinkles and signs of aging, as well as giving the face and chin a more youthful appearance. The surgery will help reverse the changes caused by age and stress. As a rule, a circular facelift is performed on patients between the ages of 40 and 60.
What is a facelift surgery? There are several types of facelifts. During your preoperative consultation, your doctor will discuss the appropriate options with you. Typically, the incision is made in a natural line behind the ear and then extended around the earlobe to the edge of the hair, where it is easier to hide. A small incision may also be needed under the chin.
Preparing for Surgery To achieve the best results from a circular facelift, it is very important to follow your doctor's instructions.
What to expect during recovery? Recovery begins immediately after surgery. Your face may be covered with a bandage to help regulate the swelling, and small drainage tubes may be placed under your skin to keep fluid from collecting. Discomfort after the procedure is negligible; medications can be taken against pain. Each patient recovers at his own pace, but in general, you can count on the following schedule.
On the day of the facelift • Visible bruising and swelling that can be reduced by keeping your head slightly higher than your body at all times
