Over the years, facial features gradually change as a result of natural age-related changes. Depending on heredity, individual anatomical features and lifestyle, for some, the first signs of aging appear earlier, and for others later. At a certain point, the reflection in the mirror ceases to please: the face loses youth and freshness, its oval may become pronounced wrinkles and a flabby chin, cheeks droop. 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 circular facelift, is a surgical procedure aimed at eliminating wrinkles and signs of aging, as well as giving the face and chin area a more youthful appearance. The operation will help eliminate the changes caused by age and stress. As a rule, a circular facelift is performed on patients aged 40 to 60 years.
What is facelift surgery? There are several types of facelift. During your pre-op consultation, your doctor will discuss your 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 that you follow your doctor's instructions.
What to expect during recovery? Recovery begins immediately after the operation. Your face may be covered with a bandage to help control swelling, and small drainage tubes may be placed under your skin to keep fluid from collecting. Discomfort after the procedure is negligible, pain medications can be taken. Each patient recovers at their own pace, but in general, you can count on the following schedule.
