Facelift in Mumbai

Everyday stresses of life like inadequate sleep, poor eating habits, stress, pollution, smoking, sun exposure, etc. accelerate the process of aging by directly or indirectly affecting our skin and body. You will be surprised at how early you will start noticing those wrinkles, fine lines, and loose, sagging skin on your face and neck. If these signs of aging on your face are bothering you, be rest assured that you are not alone.

What is Facelift?

As we age, the skin tends to become loose and begins to sag from loss of elasticity due to collagen loss combined with the effects of gravity on the skin over a period of time. Ageing is a fact of life, but looking at your age is not. Early signs of aging can be countered by minimally invasive methods like anti-wrinkle injections, fillers, threads, and radiofrequency. These methods can delay a facelift until late signs of aging start appearing.

As you age further, the skin becomes more lax, inelastic, and youthful volume from the upper cheek and midface decreases. Late signs of aging like deep creases, wrinkles, jowls, or hanging loose skin from the middle and lower face, and loose neck skin appear.

A facelift or rhytidectomy is a surgical procedure that addresses not only the loose, sagging skin of the face and neck but also the muscles, fat, and fascia underneath to restore a natural-looking, youthful face.

What are some common reasons why you may consider facelift

  • You have sagging skin in the mid-face.
  • You have deep creases below the lower eyelids.
  • You have deep creases between the nose and corner of the mouth.

A facelift cannot reverse or halt the aging process but help you look younger and feel your best by subtly improving your natural facial features, lifting the sagging skin, and smoothing unwanted wrinkles.

  • You have lost the fullness in the face as a result of loss of facial volume from fat that has fallen or is displaced.
  • You have jowls or loose skin and excess fatty deposits under your chin and jaw.

A facelift can easily set the clock back in time by eight to ten years to give a younger, fresher, and rejuvenated appearance.

More Questions about Facelift

Will the recovery after facelift be painful?

If you are sensitive to pain, we will always be available to assist you in making your post-operative period pain free.

Will the scars be visible?

The scars are hidden along the curves of the face in front of the ear and behind it. They usually heal well, and scars can be easily concealed within the hair in females.

When can I start exercising post-surgery?

Light exercises like brisk walking, yoga can be started in one week after suture removal. Jogging and other strenuous exercises can be started after 4 weeks.

When can I resume work after facelift?

It usually depends on how you feel. Most patients safely resume work as early as 10-14 days post face lift surgery. Desk work or computer based work can be resumed immediately within 5-7 days of surgery if you are comfortable being seen with some swelling and bruising.

When can I travel by flight after a facelift?

Any air travel is advised at least after one-week post-surgery to allow the swelling to reduce so that there is no difficulty in clearing the ears during your flight.

When can I drive after a facelift?

It is advisable to drive after a facelift after about 2 weeks because of the tightness of the face. You should be comfortable to drive by 2 weeks.

How long do the results last?

The results of a facelift are permanent. You shall forever look younger compared to how you would look without the surgery. With the continued effect of gravity and as you will continue to age, the facial laxity may cause the skin to re-sag over 7 -10 years.

Will I have to re-do a facelift?

A re-do surgery may be required when tissues eventually “re-sag”. Skin laxity can be treated with a repeat procedure. You will still look younger than what you would have looked without the procedure.

What is a mini-facelift or a short scar facelift?

A facelift where the incision is not extended behind the ear and may involve lesser dissection of the face is termed as mini or short scar facelift. It usually does not address the neck and is meant only to address the face.

What are the other procedures that can be performed along with a facelift?

A brow lift, blepharoplasty (eyelid correction), botulinum toxin (anti-wrinkle injections) for forehead lines, chemical peels, and laser rejuvenation are common procedures combined with a facelift.

Will I have a pulled-up and tight appearance after my facelift?

Immediately post-surgery, the face will appear pulled up and tight for a couple of weeks until edema settles. With time a natural-looking result will be evident.

What are the potential risks and complications of a facelift?

The specific risks and complications associated with your surgery will be discussed in detail during your consultation with Dr. Sudhanva.

Will my insurance cover facelift?

A facelift is a purely cosmetic procedure and is not covered by insurance.

What is a liquid facelift?

Use of botulinum toxin and fillers to improve the wrinkles & address the lost facial volume is a liquid facelift. It can be highly effective in younger patients who are not yet candidates for a facelift. It can add the lost volume; however, it does not treat sagging and lax tissues and excess skin.
