Facelift

Facial aging is one of the frequent causes in our practice. The passage of time affects us all to a greater or lesser extent. In a recent publication, it becomes evident that as one ages, the head widens, the forehead flattens, the eyes dwarf 1. Added to this is what was previously known, and that is that the facial bone structure decreases, the tissue Subcutaneous becomes thinner, bone reduces facial fat and skin atrophy occurs with a sagging.

In recent years, regenerative medicine for skin maintenance has gained space. This means that we can currently delay facial cervical aging and with it the need for treatments such as a facelift.

Now, when the time comes, medical treatments have limitations and are not capable of producing the desired changes. It is at this time that the face and neck lift has its role.

There is no certain age to undergo a facelift, but it is the state of each person that dictates the moment in which intervention of this nature could be performed.

FACELIFT

Description

Facelift is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging on the face and neck. As individuals age, the skin and muscles of the face region begin to lose tone. The facelift cannot stop the process of aging. It can improve the most visible signs of aging by tightening the deeper structures, re-draping the skin of the face and neck, and removing selected areas of fat.

A facelift can be performed alone, or in conjunction with other procedures, such as a brow lift, liposuction, eyelid surgery, or nasal surgery.

Types of Facial & Neck Lifting

Facelift surgery is individualized for each patient. The best candidates for facelift surgery have a face and neckline that has begun to sag, but whose skin has elasticity and whose bony structure is well defined.

Anterior Facelift

If the patient wants a facial rejuvenation but not so intense in the neck, we opted for an “anterior” facelift.

The facelift improves the position of the cheeks, reduces the nasolabial folds and improves the jawline and tightens the skin of the neck.

Cervicofacial Facelift

If the patient wants a maximum neck correction, we opt for a cervicofacial (antero-posterior) facelift, using this operation the tissues of the face and neck are treated with special intensity.

Cervicofacial Facelift

Half Third Lifting / Cheek lifting

The cheekbones lift, it is used as an alternative to filling the cheekbones or nasolabial folds and produces an effect of lifting the cheekbones.

The treatment through surgical face lifting. There are several modalities of face lifting depending on the needs of each patient. If the patient wants a maximum neck correction, we opt for a (antero-posterior) facelift, using this operation the tissues of the face and neck are treated with special intensity.

The interventions are carried out under general anesthesia, although sometimes we do it under local anesthesia and sedation, and we recommend a night of hospitalization. Paradoxically, the postoperative period is not painful, although it does cause some discomfort.

After the intervention, a chin guard is applied and must be worn for 10 days. The stitches are removed 10 days after the intervention.  From a social point of view, it is necessary to have at least 15 days of isolation; This will also depend on the type of intervention you have undergone.

Cheeklift / Midface Lift

It is the great unknown since there are few plastic surgeons specialized in this procedure. The cheek lift is used as an alternative to the fillers of cheekbones or nasogenian folds

The mid-third or cheekbone lift produces:

  • Lifting effect on the cheekbones, eliminating the oblique line (which usually appears on the cheeks as an initial sign of aging in younger patients)
  • Attenuation of wrinkles in the nasogenian folds
  • Increased volume of the cheekbones.

The cheekbone augmentation in this case occurs in a more uniform and natural way since it is the cheekbones themselves that are returned to a position they occupied years ago.

In addition, it is performed without visible scars and does not require skin removal. The results are permanent.

The definitive alternative to fillers

It is a very good option for those patients who are fed up with fillers and want a more effective and long-lasting treatment.

If you are tired of facial fillers or if they give you an undesired effect due to being artificial or insufficient, cheek lift using this method can be a good alternative.

It is performed under general anesthesia and the procedure lasts 45 minutes, without admission.

Large bruises do not usually occur, although the cheeks can be swollen for a few days, which is usually pleasing due to the volume effect it produces until it finally settles.

In those cases in which the volume of the cheekbones is scarce, a lipofilling of the cheeks with a graft of your own fat by means of lipotransfer.

The interventions are performed under general anesthesia, although sometimes we do it under local anesthesia and sedation, and we recommend one night of hospitalization. Paradoxically, the postoperative period is not painful, although it causes some discomfort.

After the intervention, a chin guard is applied that must be worn for 10 days.

The stitches are removed 10 days after the intervention.

From the social point of view, it is necessary to have at least 15 days of isolation; This will also depend on the type of intervention to which you have undergone.

Brow Lift / Fox Lift

The periocular region is one of the areas where aging and falling eyebrows are most noticeable. Excess skin in the upper part of the eye can make it difficult to see and give a saddened image.

It is important to assess the drooping of the eyebrows before performing an upper eyelid rejuvenation procedure. (upper blepharoplasty) ,sometimes the drooping of the upper eyelid can be due to a drooping eyebrow.

The treatment of the fall of the eyebrows is surgical, although in mild cases it can be treated with botulinum toxin.

  • In men of a certain age, it may be indicated to make an incision just in the upper margin of the eyebrow to use it as an elevation point.
  • In younger patients, an endoscopic technique can be used whereby an incision is made inside the scalp and anchor points are launched inside the skin up to the eyebrow.

There is no certain age to undergo an eyebrow lift and it is the state of each person that dictates the moment in which an intervention of this nature could be carried out.

Like any other intervention, it can be subject to complications of both the scar and the the adjoining tissues. With the passage of time the situation of the eyebrows can fall again.

In the first days you can expect some slight bruising that could be seen in the eye area. It usually resolves in 10 days. The points are usually removed 10 days after the intervention.

Upper lip lift

Facial aging is one of the frequent causes in our practice. Often overlooked is the fact that the upper lip is an important part of the aging facial appearance.

As you age, the subcutaneous tissue becomes thinner, that is, facial fat decreases and skin atrophy with sagging occurs.

This affects the upper lip in two ways:

  • lengthening the distance between the nose and the beginning of the vermilion and
  • thinning the vermilion of the upper lip.

In some cases, this elongation and thinning appears in middle age due to either premature aging or a constitutional factor.

This affects women to a greater degree than men, certainly due to the greater fragility of female tissues.

There is no certain age to undergo an upper lip lift, but it is the state of each person that dictates the moment in which an intervention of this nature could be carried out.

This is a procedure performed under local anesthesia, by which a portion of skin is removed just below the nose and the upper lip is raised.

The incision is partially hidden within the nostrils and in the folds wings.

After the intervention you can return home.
The stitches are removed 10 days after the intervention.
In the first few days you can expect some slight bruising, you will experience some tightness despite which you will be able to eat and drink normally.
