The procedures that might be performed in conjunction with a facelift include brow lift and eyelid surgery to rejuvenate aging eyes. Fat transfer or fillers may also come into play, depending on what you want restored: Sometimes lost fatty volume can simply be replaced by injection of tightenedgee substance (in other words – fat). Other times it’s necessary for patients who have experienced extensive tissue loss due not only to their age but genetic weaknesses as well; these individuals often benefit from skin treatments such as dermabrasion peels laser treatment .
The traditional facelift incisions start at your temple, run down in front and around the ear to end on the lower scalp. This is usually one continuous cut with the surgeon being able to redistribute fat as well reposition deep tissues, lift muscles, trim excess skin or make additional cuts under the chin.
You may experience mild to moderate pain after a face-lift, with draining from the incisions and swelling. You might also bruising under your eyes where they were cut away for skin removal during surgery; numbness in that area because there’s been nerve damage but luckily this goes away quickly without lasting effects.
