Facelift is a very complex surgery but it’s results are accurate and permanent. Depending on a patients’ wish and medical indications the extent of the surgery is chosen individually: forehead, middle-face, lower-face or full face lifts can be performed.
Many different procedures of face lifting exist. The differences are mostly the type of incision, the invasiveness and the area of the face that is treated. Each surgeon practices multiple different techniques of a facelift surgery. Expectations of the patient, her/his age, possible recovery time and areas to improve are some of the many factors taken in consideration before choosing a technique of the surgery.
Successful facelift’s result – natural looking face and well rested appearance.
Facelift is performed under general anesthesia and requires three to four hours to complete. After the surgery bruising and swelling are expected for 2-3 weeks, numbness could last as long as six months; sutures are removed after 7-14 days following the surgery and depending on wounds, special garments are recommended for approximately one week. Therefore, after facelift surgery it is advised to stay 7-14 days in Lithuania (depending of the extent of the surgery). Scars will remain firm and pink for about six weeks and then begin to fade over several months.
Who can have a facelift?
As any other surgeries, this surgery is not suitable for all patients. Patients having medical (physical and psychological) problems, cigarette smokers, patients with hypertension and diabetes and those who experience hypersensitivity to anesthesia must be examined thoroughly before taking this step.
The most common potential complications can be necrosis of the skin flaps, infection, hematoma, nerve injury, hair loss, hypertrophic scars, pigmentation changes, prolonged edema, earlobe traction deformity, chronic pain. These complications are very rare, if the patient was indeed suitable for the surgery, if the doctor had required qualifications and if the patient had followed postoperative recommendations.
