Face Lifting

Face Lifting

Generally, the procedure involves elevating the skin, tightening the underlying tissues and muscles. Fat in the face and neck may be removed, redistributed or sculpted. The skin is then placed back over the newly shaped structure, the excess skin is removed and the site is stitched.

Description And Symptoms
Effects/ Causes

A facelift is a common form of cosmetic surgery that includes the improvement of visible signs of ageing in the face and neck. Sakhiya Skin Clinic offers a variety of facelift treatments to meet your specific needs.

Rhytidectomy, also known as a facelift, is a surgical cosmetic surgery that aims to rejuvenate the face and neck by treating apparent signs of ageing. Gravity, sun exposure, genetics, and lifestyle choices all contribute to the formation of face wrinkles, sagging skin, and loss of young features over time. A facelift provides a comprehensive way to offset these effects, allowing people to seem more young and rejuvenated.

Facelift Treats Signs of Aging Such As:

  • Sagging Facial Skin: Restoring elasticity and firmness.
  • Deep Facial Folds: Smoothing lines from nose to mouth corners.
  • Lost Facial Fat: Rejuvenating volume and contours.
  • Drooping Cheeks and Jawline: Addressing jowls.
  • Excess Neck Skin and Fat: Eliminating the double chin appearance.

Procedure for a facelift

The surgeon relocates fat and tissue beneath the skin during a facelift to:

  • Help with removing wrinkles.
  • Elevate and tighten the facial skin.
  • Eliminate extra skin that results in sagging or “jowls”.

Rhytidectomy or face-lift is a surgical procedure performed to improve the visible signs of aging in the face and neck like:

  • Sagging of skin
  • Fat that has fallen or disappeared
  • Loose skin and excess fat around the neck

Aging is a natural process which includes thinning of skin, loss of facial fat leaving behind wrinkles and saggy skin.

Other procedures might be performed to get a complete look.

What facelift surgery cannot do?

It is restorative surgery, done to improve your looks; it will not slow the aging process. The results are not permanent but the effects are expected to last 5 years.

Causes For Facial Ageing –

Gravity: The gravity pull on skin and tissues causes sagging, particularly in the lower face and neck.

Sun Exposure: Prolonged UV radiation exposure accelerates ageing, wrinkles and uneven pigmentation.

Genetics: Sometimes genetic factors influence skin ageing and certain ageing-related facial traits.

Lifestyle: Unhealthy habits such as smoking and poor diet promote ageing by reducing skin renewal and suppleness.

Is facelift treatment painful?

Generally, during facelifts, discomfort is normal, and temporary and can be managed with prescribed medications.

How long does facelift recovery take?

The recovery time varies from person to person, but it normally takes 2-3 weeks. Gradually, swelling and bruising will reduce.

Will my facelift results look natural?

Plastic surgeons aim for natural-looking outcomes that enhance your appearance without making you look "overdone". The purpose is to renew the appearance rather than just to alter it.

Can facelifts be combined with other procedures?

Yes, a facelift can be paired with additional cosmetic treatments such as eyelid surgery, brow lift, or dermal fillers to achieve total facial rejuvenation.

How long do facelift results last?

The effects of a facelift are long-lasting, yet the ageing process continues. A healthy lifestyle and regular skincare can help to extend the results.
