What Is a Facelift?

An anesthetic procedure to improve aging signs in the face and neck is rhytidectomy, otherwise known as a facelift. Facelift results in a fresher facial appearance. After this surgery, there would be some changes; including:

  • Facial sagging caused by skin relaxation
  • Intensification of the fold lines at the corner of the mouth and between the nose
  • A loss of fat or disappearance of fat
  • Cheek and jaw jowls develop
  • Skin loose and fat accumulating on the neck, resulting in a “turkey neck” or double chin.

A variety of factors can contribute to the loss of youthful contours in the face, including thinning of the skin, the loss of facial fat, gravity, sun damage, smoking, and heredity and stress.

In addition to a facelift, brow lifts and eyelid surgery can give an aged eye and invigorated appearance. To replace the volume lost because of fat transfer, fillers might be suggested. To improve the skin’s quality and texture, IPL, dermabrasion, peels, and laser treatments may be available.

Why Should You Get a Facelift?

As we age, the skin begins to lose flexibility, and facial muscles miss a volume. Ultimately, this appears in “jowls” on the lower face, long wrinkles, and loose skin on the neck. While this is a regular part of becoming older, patients disturbed by these symptoms of aging may get a facelift as a good solution. If any of the following represent you, a facelift is an option to recognize:

  • You seem self-conscious about the way your face & neck looks due to stooping skin
  • You use turtlenecks and scarves not because you desire to, simply because you want to cover your aging neck
  • When you see your image, you feel that your face presents you to look much older than you feel
  • You think that an aged face is negatively affecting your profession or personal relations

Patients commonly experience an upsurge in self-reliance following a facelift, as their appearance fully portrays their healthy, active vibe.

What Does a Facelift Operation Can’t Do?

A facelift does not replace your significant appearance and cannot prevent the aging process as corrective surgery.

A facelift can only be done surgically; minimally invasive rejuvenation treatments cannot achieve the same results but may help delay the time a facelift becomes appropriate and complement the surgery results.

Some minimally invasive approaches, such as stem cell facelifts, are of unproven advantage.

How Much Does a Facelift Require?

As the American Society of Plastic Surgeons researched, the medium cost of a facelift was around $7,448 in 2017. That doesn’t include clinic or surgical center expenses, anesthesia, or similar expenses, so that the final price may be higher.

Your cost will differ depending on your wanted results, the expertise of the operator, and your geographic place of the operation center.

How Does a Facelift Work?

Through a facelift, your surgeon repositions fat plus tissue beneath the skin to:

  • improve smoothing out your wrinkles
  • displace excess skin that’s making “jowls.”
  • raise and stretch the facial skin

What’s the Plan for a Facelift?

Facelifts differ depending on your wanted outcomes.

Traditionally, a cut is made in the hairline near the temples. The cut moves in front of the ear, down in the act of hugging the earlobe, then back to the lower scalp of the ears.

Fat and excess skin may be separated or redistributed from the face. The underlying tissue and connective muscle are redistributed and stiffened. However, if there’s insignificant skin sagging, a “mini” facelift may be arranged. This includes shorter cuts and less trouble.

If a neck lift is additionally done, the excess skin and fat will be discharged. The skin of the neck will be compressed and stretched up and back. This is usually done within a cut just beneath the chin.

The cuts often possess dissolvable stitchings or skin glue. In any instance, you might need to return to the doctor to remove the stitches. The cuts and incisions are made so that they would get covered with your hairline and facial structure.

You’ll regularly have a surgical waste tube after the operation as well as bandages covering your face.

Models of Facelifts

Facelift surgery is individualized to a patient’s demands, and a corrective surgeon will tailor their methods accordingly.


Patients who display a moderate degree of wrinkles and sagging skin are usually good nominees for a mini-facelift. This small invasive method allows a corrective surgeon to stretch deep facial tissues within smaller incisions, typically positioned along the hairline above each ear or in the natural creases enclosing the ear. Anatomical tissues near the cheeks are raised and stretched into these incisions to fix jowling, improve the jawline, and renew a “tired” look.

A mini-facelift can be done using regional anesthesia with sedation or customary anesthesia; your cosmetic operator will suggest the best choice for your individual demands. A mini-facelift can aid you in approaching undesirable signs of aging before they become too assertive, delaying the need for more extensive surgery for many years.

Regular Facelift

A regular or “traditional” facelift will address moderate to advanced aging more thoroughly around the mid-face and neck. While the operation is more extended than those as a mini-facelift, and thus more rehabilitation time is needed, the effects are more dramatic. Through cuts located just behind the hairline, beginning near the temples, and around the front of the ear, covered in the natural folds, a cosmetic surgeon can reposition the more penetrating tissues beneath the skin and discharge excess skin to smooth creases, eliminate howling and sagging skin beneath the chin, and revive a naturally youthful contour to the face and neck.

Are There Any Side Effects or Dangers?

There are risks and dangers basically to every medical operation, such as a facelift. Risks can be:

  • Bleeding
  • Anesthesia dangers
  • Contagiousness
  • Cardiac events
  • Blood clumps
  • Pain or scarring
  • Hair damage at the surgery sites
  • Prolonged swelling
  • Difficulties with wound healing

Speak with your surgeon about all of the dangers associated with a facelift to ensure the procedure fits you.

What to Assume Following a Facelift

Subsequent to the surgery, your surgeon will likely order pain medicine. You may or may not have any pain or distress along with swelling and bruising. This is all reasonable.

Your surgeon will guide you when to withdraw any dressings or drains and make a follow-up interview.

Once the inflammation runs down, you’ll be ready to see the difference in how you look. As far as your skin “feeling” standard, this usually takes several months.

Typically, give yourself approximately two weeks before returning to an average level of daily activity. For more challenging activities, like exercise, wait around four weeks. Everyone is different, though, so ask your doctor when you can expect to be able to resume your usual activities.

To help extend the results of your facelift, moisturize your face daily, protect it from the sun, and live a generally healthy lifestyle.

The results of a facelift aren’t guaranteed. You might not get your desired results from one surgery. Sometimes a subsequent surgery is necessary.

Talk with your doctor about what you can do to help ensure a successful facelift and what you can reasonably expect from the surgery.
