How a Face Lift can Change your Life

Face lifts are changing the lives of many people for the better these days. It has become quite a norm to visit a plastic surgeon mostly, after the age of twenty. The numbers showing the sheer amount of procedures done in a single year speak for themselves. Take for instance the number of procedures carried out in the U.S. in the year 2009 alone. The total number of procedures carried out was 103,625 out of which women accounted for 91% of the candidates. Age seemed to be no barrier when it comes to face lifts: 295 candidates were hardly a year or two older than 20.

A face lift is a simple procedure which gives you a ‘put together’ appearance.

What does a face lift involve?

Since every face has unique contours and a particular shape, an expert plastic surgeon will know how to deal with every individual case with precision. For the same reason, it should not be assumed that all surgeries are the same. The main factors that a surgeon will pay attention to are the texture of the skin and the consistency of the patient’s skin.

A word of caution for smokers though: Because smoking prevents proper blood flow to the skin and therefore delays the process of healing, smokers are advised to give up a week before the procedure. Once your doctor has identified all your needs and expectations, you should be ready to get a makeover that’ll leave you confident. The success rate of this procedure is very high and it is credited to take decades off your face.

In sharp contrast to what many people would have you believe, a face lift is virtually painless. Under the influence of a sedative and anesthesia, the patient hardly feels any sensation at all. Some surgeons even prefer to use general anesthesia which puts patients to sleep; happy to wake up to see their brand new selves!

The basic goal of the procedure is to tighten the face muscles with the help of carefully placed incisions which serve as the point of maximum support. These incisions are at the hairline, the temples and around the earlobe, covering the entire face. If the patient happens to have a double chin, a small incision is required to access the underlying tissues and fat and rectify the appearance of the anatomical structure.

Not only does the procedure render you skin which is profoundly firmer and tighter, you will not fail to notice that your contours are much more defined with the help of liposuction where needed. This is the part of the procedure which focuses on the removal of extra fat tissue which gives your face a worn-out and shapeless demeanor.

Lasting for a mere two to four hours, this procedure is a safe and inexpensive way of taking off the effects of time and stress from your face. The results are quick and long lasting, guaranteeing utmost satisfaction.
