Fighting Signs of Aging with a Facelift

Fighting Signs of Aging with a Facelift

In short, facelift in Dearborn improves the signs of aging predominantly in men and women in their 40s and 50s. If your mid face shows signs of aging and you do not have severe excessive skin around your jawline or neck, a mini facelift is the perfect procedure for you. The procedure is popularly known as the short scar or weekend facelift.

Who makes a good candidate?

If you have noticed that your jawline is not defined anymore due to sagging and excessive fat, you are an ideal candidate for a mini facelift. It benefits those in their 40s and 50s most in removing signs of aging. Your surgeon may also combine it with another procedure like liposuction to enhance your results.

What is the procedure for a facelift and a mini facelift?

The facelift procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia and sedatives so that you are awake yet your face is numb. However, some surgeons may prefer a general anesthesia so that you sleep through your procedure.

The procedure for a mini facelift depends on your surgeon’s technique and your facial structure determines the incision and sequence. The skin is first separated from the fat and muscle below it before excessive fat from around your neck and chin area is trimmed or suctioned to enhance your facial contours. The underlying muscles and tissue are then pulled tight, and after excision of extra skin, the incision is closed with sutures. Your surgeon uses metal clips in your scalp.

What is the recovery like?

Facelift recovery, just like any procedure,  will vary from case to case. Most patients do not feel much discomfort after their mini facelift but if you do, your surgeon can prescribe pain medication. Drains might be used behind your ears for draining any blood and your head is bandaged to reduce bruising and swelling. These are usually taken off within 5 days.

The numbness in your face may take a few weeks or in some cases, even months to completely disappear. The scalp takes a while longer to heal but the stitches are removed within 7 days while the metal clips may be left for a while longer.

Most patients are up within a day or two, but you must take it easy for the initial week. Be gentle with your face since the skin remains tender and numb for a while. Ensure you follow the aftercare advise your surgeon gives you. Most people return to work within 10 days after their surgery, any bruising can be hidden with makeup.
