What To Expect From A Facelift

Updated on February 27, 2011

The Basics Of A Facebook

Our society puts a great importance on physical beauty these days. As a result, cosmetic surgeries like facelifts are growing in popularity.

Cosmetic surgery has reallye evolved over the years. Originally it was only used in extreme medical emergencies or for those who had the money to afford it. As the technology of cosmetic surgery has advanced, the cost for many procedures are going down.

One of the most popular form of cosmetic surgery is the facelift, also known as rhytidectomy. This medical procedure addresses wrinkles and sagging skin. Some people use this surgery to tighten up the skin after weight loss. Others use it to address aging to give their face a younger look.

While the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery showed that three-fourths of procedures performed by surgeons in 2010 were non-surgical or the likes of botox injection or microdermabrasion , women over 35 were more on the surgical procedures like facelift and rhinoplasty.

Facelifts are proven to improve physical appearance. In the latest medical journal of the American Society of Surgeons, their studies of patients who have undergone rhytidectomy confirmed that patients have rated themselves to be 12 years younger in age after the surgery. Most of the patients in the study said the results met their expectations.

The procedure lasts for two hours, in the average. It may be an outpatient procedure or may require hospitalization. The surgeon makes an incision within the hairline. It is important that the incision being made should hide later any evidence that the procedure was done. Surgeon then separates the skin of the face from its tissues.  Surgeon then tightens the muscle and the tissues so that sagging and looseness of the face will be addressed. Excess skin will also be trimmed from the edges of the original incision.  A suture can close the incision after.

As with other surgical procedures, you can also be satisfied if you know what you want to achieve as a result. Most cosmetic surgery procedures are not covered by insurance thus it is best that you have full information, including the costs and risks, of what you will be going through.
