Face Lift

As you age, your skin loses its suppleness, especially in the face and neck region, which causes sagging, creases, wrinkles, cheek hollows, and a decrease in skin elasticity. Dr. Nilesh Satbhai offers a facelift, a cosmetic surgery that helps reduce these signs of aging and restore youthful contours.

What is a Facelift?

A facelift is a type of cosmetic surgery that tightens and lifts facial tissues while removing loose or excess skin. This procedure can be done on both your face as well as the neck for an overall more youthful appearance.

What are the different types of Facelift Surgery?

Dr. Nilesh Satbhai offers the following types of facelift surgery:

  • Traditional facelift: Also called a “full” facelift, this involves making an incision from the temple to the back of the ear. Traditional facelifts have the most drastic results and address the majority of signs of aging.

  • Mini facelift: This type of facelift involves making smaller incisions than a traditional facelift. The incision begins at the hairline, goes down and around the front ear, but does not go behind the ear as in a traditional facelift.

Who is the right Candidate for a Facelift?

You are the right candidate to undergo a facelift if:

  • You are overall healthy, both physically and mentally.
  • You are not suffering from any significant medical problems that could hinder healing and recovery.
  • You don’t smoke or are ready to quit smoking for the time period advised by the doctor.
  • You have realistic expectations from the surgery.

What to expect at the consultation for Facelift Surgery?

During a consultation for a facelift, Dr. Nilesh Satbhai will get familiar with the patient’s demands and requirements. Dr. Nilesh goes through everything in detail with them and guides them through each part of the process. Dr. Nilesh is also a firm believer in following up with the patients to ensure that they completely understand the procedure and have all of their questions answered. Dr. Nilesh goes over everything that is there in the process, including risks and complications, and anticipated results.

How is Facelift surgery performed?

  • The procedure begins with an incision in the hairline near the temples. The incision then runs forward, hugging the earlobe, then behind the ears, into the lower scalp.
  • If the patient requires a mini facelift due to minimal sagging or laxity of skin, a mini facelift is performed. A mini facelift involves a shorter or limited incision that begins in the hairline and continues around the ear without extending beyond it.
  • When performing a neck lift, the incision begins in the front of the earlobe and proceeds to the lower scalp. A small cut is made under the chin as well.
  • During the surgery, underlying facial muscles and connective tissues are tightened, as well as any surplus fat or loose skin from the face is removed.
  • Dissolvable sutures are used to close the incisions. Skin glues are sometimes utilized to close these incisions as well.

What is the cost of Facelift Surgery?

When it comes to the cost of a facelift, insurance does not cover the procedure because it is cosmetic surgery. The facelift surgery cost is based on the following factors:

  • Type/method of facelift
  • Surgeon’s expertise and qualifications
  • Consultation charges
  • Location of the clinic
  • Cost of facility
  • Cost of dressings, medical examinations, post-surgery garments

Benefits of Facelift Surgery

Many people choose facelift surgery as a result of the numerous benefits it offers. The following are some of the benefits that facelift surgery may provide:

  • Tightens the skin and reduces wrinkles
  • Redefines the jawline
  • Improves face contour
  • Boosts one’s self-esteem and self-confidence

How is recovery after a Facelift?

  • During the healing phase, you’ll be given specific instructions on caring for surgical sites and your general health, as well as painkillers to reduce your discomfort.
  • You may be using bandages to treat swelling and bruising on your face. A surgical tube is also used to aid in the reduction of swelling and the removal of excess blood.
  • A few days later, the bandages will be changed, or you may even be able to use an elasticized facial sling.
  • Permanent scarring will occur; however, these scars will be in the hairline and therefore not noticeable.
  • If dissolvable sutures are not used, you must go to the doctor to have sutures removed.
  • During this time, you should avoid intense physical activities and direct sunlight.
  • Please do your scheduled check-ups as planned.

What are the potential complications associated with a Facelift?

  • Hematoma is a common complication of a facelift procedure. Hematoma is basically a collection of blood under the skin that causes swelling. It occurs within 24 hours of the operation, and if treated promptly, it does not damage skin or tissues.
  • Facelift surgery may induce infection, a response to anesthesia, and bleeding just like any other major operation.
  • Nerve damage is another potential problem. If nerve injuries occur, they might cause damage or affect nerves that control muscles, sensation, and so on for a short time or permanently.
  • After surgery, sloughing is a common occurrence. Sloughing is the shedding of the skin due to a lack of blood flow to the face tissues.
  • Hair loss at the incision sites is possible either temporarily or permanently.

Keep in mind that these risks and problems are uncommon. Dr. Nilesh Satbhai places the safety of the patients above everything else, taking every precaution to prevent any risks or unpleasant events from happening.
