Facelift Surgery

Facelift surgery, medically known as Rhytidectomy, is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures. It aims at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles along with other tell-tale signs of ageing. The primary objective of this surgery is to enhance the overall look of the jaw and face. It is this surgical procedure that reverses the effects of stress, time and exposure to the elements.

We are COSMECTO working in close connect with some of the leading and renowned cosmetic surgeons in Delhi, India. While performing this procedure, a cosmetic surgeon would lift and tighten the underlying muscles of the face for creating aesthetically pleasing appearance, contours and rejuvenate the facial structure. Then the excess pockets of skin and fat can contribute to a tiring and aged appearance.

How is facelift surgery performed?

Most facelift methods focus on the lower facial areas such as cheeks, jowls and jawline. It can also focus on the forehead or the mid-face. In some methods, deeper facial tissues might be tightened or repositioned for restoring a more youthful contour. In some other methods, addition or removal of fat tissue fillers or fat might be necessary for achieving the best results. Today, several different methods exist with results that can be consistently durable, safe and reliable. Incisions made depend on the area of the face that is being treated and the amount of change a patient wants.

Once the cosmetic surgeon makes the incision, several degrees of undermining your facial skin is performed, and the deeper layers are lifted. Undermining is a process that separates the overlying skin of the neck and face from the tissues and muscles deep to the skin. This, in turn, loosens or frees neck and facial skin so that it can be re-draped at the end of the surgery, ensuring the skin is smooth.

Then the surgeon would raise the skin from the neck, temples and cheeks, and reposition and lift the underlying connective tissue, removing excess skin and fat. In case, the surgeon performs this procedure in conjunction with other procedure like neck lift, the surgeon would bring the neck muscles together; stitch them at the midline for forming a string sling of muscles that supports the entire jaw and neck. Depending on the need of a patient, the surgeon might also include liposuction of the jowls and neck. Also, facial implants might be added for increasing the shin or cheek volume.

Finally, the surgeon would re-drape the skin over the nee underlying structure and close the incisions made using small metal clips or stitches. As and where the need be, drainage tubes might be inserted too. A supportive, padded dressing is applied.

The main goal of the cosmetic surgeon performing this surgery is to help you achieve the new and natural-looking results. We also make sure that your entire surgical experience is comfortable. Throughout the surgery, pre and post-operative care, we make sure that you feel relaxed.
