Cosmetic Surgeries as low as $122/month*
A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure performed to perfect signs of aging like jowls caused by loss of skin tone in the lower face, deep creases under the eyes or that extend from the nose to the corners of the mouth, or sagging skin.
Types of Facelifts
There are several kinds of facelifts that can be available, and they include:
Regardless of the type, the procedure takes two to five hours. Some kinds of facelift require only a local anesthetic while others need a general anesthetic. In the latter case, the patient may spend the night in the hospital. The results of a facelift typically last between five and ten years.
The Recovery Period
Most patients need about a week to recover from their facelift surgery, although they may resume normal activities a day or two after the surgery. Bruising, swelling and discomfort are typical and may last for a few days. Any sutures or staples will be removed five to ten days after the surgery.
During the recovery period, the patient should follow the doctor's instructions concerning post-operative care. The patient needs to keep any bandages or incisions dry and follow instructions regarding bathing or washing.
It takes two or three weeks to recover fully from a facelift as the swelling and bruises fade. Some muscle stiffness and numbness will persist for a while, and this is normal. Scars from the procedure typically fade after about a year.
