As you age, your skin loses its suppleness, especially in the face and neck region, which causes sagging, creases, wrinkles, cheek hollows, and a decrease in skin elasticity. Dr. Sudhakar Prasad offers a facelift, a cosmetic surgery that helps reduce these signs of aging and restore youthful contours.

What Is A Facelift?

A facelift is a type of cosmetic surgery that tightens and lifts facial tissues while removing loose or excess skin. This procedure can be done on both your face as well as the neck for an overall more youthful appearance.

Types Of Facelift Procedures

Facelift surgery can be done in a variety of ways. Traditional facelifts and mini facelifts are the two common types of facelift surgery.

During the consultation, Dr. Sudhakar Prasad will analyze the facial structure, understand the patient’s requirements and choose the appropriate type. The doctor will then establish an attainable goal and expectations for the surgery.

Who Is The Right Candidate For A Facelift?

You are the right candidate to undergo a facelift if:

  • You are overall healthy, both physically and mentally.
  • You are not suffering from any significant medical problems that could hinder healing and recovery.
  • You don’t smoke or are ready to quit smoking for the time period advised by the doctor.

Dr. Sudhakar will also share technical and essential information about the surgery, risks and complications that can arise throughout the procedure, recovery period, and suggestions for a comfortable and quick recovery.

What Is The Procedure Of Facelift Surgery?

To ensure that the face is bacteria-free before surgery, the surgeon requests the patient to clean their face and scalp with germicide soap ahead of time.

The first step in a facelift procedure is to put the patient under general or local anesthesia, which prevents him or her from feeling any discomfort during the surgery. After that, the surgeon makes incisions on the face. The position and size of the incision are determined by the type of facelift performed.

After making the incisions, the surgeon then lifts the overlying layer of skin away from the tissues and muscles beneath it. The skin is then tightened, followed by redraping. If required, the surgeon may also tighten facial tissues or use soft tissue fillers before redraping the skin. ‍The skin is then stitched back into place by the surgeon. If necessary, drains might be placed. ‍ Facelift surgery can also be done alongside a neck lift if needed by the patient.

What Is The Cost Of Facelift Surgery?

When it comes to the cost of a facelift, insurance does not cover the procedure because it is cosmetic surgery. The facelift surgery cost is based on the following factors:

  • Type/method of facelift
  • Surgeon’s expertise and qualifications
  • Consultation charges
  • Location of the clinic
  • Cost of facility
  • Cost of dressings, medical examinations, post-surgery garments

Benefits Of Facelift Surgery

Many people choose facelift surgery as a result of the numerous benefits it offers. The following are some of the benefits that facelift surgery may provide:

  • Tightens the skin and reduces wrinkles
  • Redefines the jawline
  • Improves face contour
  • Boosts one’s self-esteem and self-confidence

How Is The Recovery After Facelift Surgery?

The patient will be able to go back home the same day as the surgery. Following surgery, some discomfort and swelling are to be expected. However, the surgeon will administer pain relievers to alleviate suffering. After the swelling has subsided, you will be able to see the results of the surgery.

Facelift surgery usually allows patients to resume their normal activities after 2 weeks of absence, but it is advised that they refrain from the rigorous activity for at least 6 weeks following the surgery. Patients are also urged to keep their appointments with the surgeon since they can help the surgeon evaluate healing and ensure there are no problems.

What Are The Potential Complications Associated With A Facelift?

  • Hematoma is a common complication of a facelift procedure. Hematoma is basically a collection of blood under the skin that causes swelling. It occurs within 24 hours of the operation, and if treated promptly, it does not damage skin or tissues.
  • Facelift surgery may induce infection, a response to anesthesia, and bleeding just like any other major operation.
  • Nerve damage is another potential problem. If nerve injuries occur, they might cause damage or affect nerves that control muscles, sensation, and so on for a short time or permanently.
  • After surgery, sloughing is a common occurrence. Sloughing is the shedding of the skin due to a lack of blood flow to the face tissues.
  • Hair loss at the incision sites is possible either temporarily or permanently.

Keep in mind that these risks and problems are uncommon, occurring only in one individual at a time. Dr. Sudhakar Prasad places the safety of patients above everything else, taking every precaution to prevent any risks or unpleasant events from happening.
