Like the rest of the body , the facial sagging gradually over time. Fortunately, nowadays, Cosmetic Surgery and Anti-Aging Medicine offer many solutions to regain the shape of our initial face. Your Aesthetic Surgeon will offer you a facelift . It is the intervention of face rejuvenation par excellence!
There are several types of facelifts to improve the disfigurement caused by facial and neck aging, either locally or in a more extensive way: facial lifting, cervical lifting, frontal lifting, temporal lifting , Lifting of the tail of the eyebrow. We will discuss in this article mini-facelift and facelift . We will return to the other types of facelift in another ticket soon.
The mini-facelift and the cervico-facial facelift both correct aging at the level of the neck and at the level of the lower face . The difference between the two residing in the addition or not of correcting gestures in the eyelids, the cheekbones, the lips or any other part of the face requiring it. Unlike the first facelifts made in the 1960s / 70s that gave a “frozen” appearance to the face, the techniques evolved towards more gentle techniques . The goal is to keep a natural look to the face with a revitalizing and refreshing face. Indeed, it is important that the patient and his entourage can “recognize” after the intervention. These facelifts can be practiced at any age but usually from the fifties. This procedure can be supplemented by botulinum toxin injections.
Aims and Objectives
The aim of the intervention is to treat the sagging and loosening of the skin and facial muscles (cheeks, jowls, oval face) and neck. The aim is not to change the shape and appearance of the face but to allow the simple restoration of the different anatomical structures of the face and neck (skin, muscle, fat), allowing the patient To recover the appearance that was his a few years ago.
Your aesthetic surgeon will put the structures back in tension, in order to correct their relaxation. The skin is then ” redraped ” on the new curves, without excessive traction . This dual action makes it possible to obtain a natural result (because the skin is not too tight ), durable (because the muscular plane is solid) and surgeries generally quite simple (the skin “marks” less because it Is not very traumatized because of the limited tension and detachment). If the patient has a fatty overload , (often in the neck: “double chin”), this can be treated by liposuction.
Conversely, if the face is ossified (when the face widens talking ossification) , this aspect can be corrected at the same time by reinjecting autologous fat (fat belonging to the patient) by technical lipostructure . Thus the face and neck are somehow ” reconstructed “, ” restructured “. The cutaneous incisions are mainly hidden in the hair (at the nape of the neck, sometimes the temples) and around the ear , the scar is thus almost completely concealed .
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and therefore requires a preoperative assessment in accordance with the prescriptions. The anesthesiologist will be seen in consultation no later than 48 hours before surgery .
No medicine containing aspirin should be taken within 10 days of surgery.
The hair will be washed on the day before surgery and a careful make-up removal will be performed on the day of surgery.
It is essential to stay on an empty stomach (do not eat or drink) 6 hours before the procedure.
In the first days, the patient should rest and avoid any violent effort.
Facelift is a painless procedure . In most cases, simple analgesics are sufficient.
During the first few days, the surgeon should neither be surprised nor worried:
- Of an edema (swelling) which may be more accentuated on the second day than the first,
- bruising (bruises) in the neck area and chin,
- A feeling of painful tension, especially behind the ears, and around the neck.
These ecchymoses and edema disappear on average within 2 weeks after surgery.
After the first month, the swelling has generally completely disappeared but there is still a slight induration of the detached areas, more palpable than visible. The ears recover their normal sensitivity only one or two months later.
The final result
The final result will be visible two to three months after surgery . The scars will still be slightly pink and indurated for about 6 months.
Thanks to the progress made and to a great technical detail, an appreciable rejuvenation effect is most often obtained , which remains very natural : the face does not have a “surgical” aspect and has recovered approximately the features that were its own eight or Twelve years ago, which gives overall rested, relaxed and refreshed. This physical improvement is accompanied as a rule by psychological well-being.
In the long term, the cervical-facial lifting makes it possible to combat the effects of time and has a lasting result . However, as the years go by and continue to take effect, it can be renewed some ten or fifteen years later.
Make the right choice
If you are considering a Lifting surgery, it is important to choose a safe and competent plastic surgeon and facility . Many clinics offer such interventions at attractive prices but they are often at the expense of fundamental factors such as the quality of the intervention and postoperative complications: The competence of the speakers, the aseptic, which must be Rigorous and strict. The use of a qualified plastic surgeon is absolutely essential for the control of the operative gesture , in order to achieve the desired result and avoid the complications.
Never forget that your face is your first business card!
EASYLIFT, The MINI-FACE-LIFT, soft, fast and long-lasting
Safety issues above all.
One golden rule from which our plastic surgeons will never break, is to never practice any surgical interventions or treatments which have not already shown their ability yet. This surgical intervention entails little, even no complications. Possibly a small bruise but no risk of aftereffects.
The local anesthetic (added by painkillers) is favored, for a natural breath.
It reduces considerably the risks of bruises and allows a recovery faster than under general anesthesia.
It is often when coming up to the eyelids that the first signs of ageing appear, in the form of wrinkles, of stains and of cutaneous distension. Frequently also greasy pockets exist at the level of the superior eyelid and of the lower eyelid giving to eyes a tired look.
Esthetic Blépharoplastie attempts to correct the signs of ageing at the level of eyelids to exchange so this aspect tired by a more rested(based) look. This intervention of plastic surgery, practised at the woman as well as in man is practicable, towards the age of 35 and 45 years and allows to find a younger face of a few years.
The intervention is realized under local, thorough anesthetic or not in certain cases, under general anesthesia. For the superior Eyelid, the section is discreet and is hidden in a natural fold. In what it is the lower eyelid, the section made level with lashes is practically invisible.
A tired look or puffy eyes may also result from the presence of fatty pockets in the inner part of the upper eyelids or the lower eyelids, as well as the appearance of dark circles. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) may present a solution to correct these natural imperfections and time effects, but this should in no way change the patient’s eye and the shape of the eye. The result must remain natural.
Blepharoplasty aims to rejuvenate the gaze and permanently erase a wrinkled appearance, correct droopy eyelids or pockets under the eyes, without any risk for visual acuity. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper and / or lower eyelids depending on the corrections to be made. Contrary to popular belief, blepharoplasty of the lower eyelids is not an aesthetic response to the problems of the eyes. Indeed, dark circles are often due to the presence of a “hollow” under the eye and darker or darker shade of the lower eyelid. In this case, the rings can be treated by:
- The injection of fillers (hyaluronic acid),
- And / or the application of a “depigmenting” cream if the rings are colored
If you want to correct an upper eyelid with an excess of fat and skin, and botulinic acid (Botox®) injection solutions are inadequate or inadequate, your cosmetic surgeon will direct you Towards a blepharoplasty of the upper eyelids. If you have an excess of fat (pocket) and / or wrinkled skin under the lower eyelid, it will direct you to a blepharoplasty of the lower eyelids.
In the upper eyelids
The procedure consists of reducing the internal fatty pockets of the upper eyelids and removing the excess skin. Your aesthetic surgeon will take care to take enough fat to avoid “digging” the eye, but instead “redistribute” that fat in a harmonious manner. Indeed, it is fundamental not to accentuate the deepening of the gaze.
The skin and muscle are excised in the palpebral fold, as well as in the wrinkle of the “crow’s feet”, thus allowing an imperceptibility of the scar.
It is a simple, rapid intervention, performed as an outpatient (released on the day of the operation), under local anesthesia. The wires are removed 4 to 6 days after surgery.
Bruises on the upper and lower eyelids will appear and persist for 8 to 10 days and the eyes will be a little watery.
Social exclusion is very short: between 4 and 10 days, depending on the patient’s job (relations with the public or not).
Only small inconvenience of this intervention: The patient will have to sleep in semi-seated position for 4 to 5 days to avoid the formation of an edema.
The final result is assessed approximately one month after surgery. A small swelling quite “camouflable” persists for about two months and the scar becomes invisible after a month.
Complications of this procedure are very rare.
In the lower eyelids
Blepharoplasty of the lower eyelids consists in removing the excess skin and fat below the eye in order to restore a fresh, rested appearance.
Your cosmetic surgeon will perform an incision under the lower lashes thus allowing an invisible scar.
It will fill the hollow responsible for dark circles by reshaping the fat, pockets to give volume where it is insufficient.
Unlike blepharoplasty of the upper eyelids, the procedure is performed under general anesthesia. It lasts on average 1 hour and the duration of hospitalization is one day or one day and one night.
Swelling and bruising will appear and persist for 10 to 15 days. The wires will be removed 4 to 6 days after surgery.
The patient should avoid exposing his eyes to extreme conditions (sun, cold, spray …) for 3 to 4 weeks. The final result is visible beyond this period.
In the hands of a competent and experienced surgeon, the complications of this procedure are extremely rare.
Blepharoplasty of the four eyelids
If you have to use blepharoplasty of the four eyelids (upper and lower eyelids), the procedure will be performed under general anesthesia, and the postoperative follow-up will be identical to that of the blepharoplasty of the lower eyelids. This is why, very often, a seasoned cosmetic surgeon will direct you if possible, towards the blepharoplasty of the upper eyelids only and will treat the lower zone by anti-aging medicine techniques.
The importance of entrusting this intervention to a real specialist
Like any surgery, it is fundamental to choose a safe and competent Plastic Surgeon and Plastic Surgeon. Indeed, the right choice is absolutely essential for the control of the operative gesture in order to obtain the expected result and avoid the complications.
If you would like the advice of a specialist in this type of intervention, we invite you to make an appointment now for a consultation with your professional aesthetic, plastic and reconstructive surgery.
PLASTIC SURGERY of the chin
Génioplastie, plastic surgery of the chin allows to correct as well a receding chin as a chin too much thrown forward. In both case, the intervention is possible only at the end of the osseous growth, that is after 17 years. The section is most of the time endobuccale and there is this fact no visible scar.
The intervention is realized most of the time under thorough and hard local anesthetic and lasts most of the time less than one hour. 2 techniques are possible:
A) Let be the implementation of a prothetic implant in silicone
B) Let be the use of an osseous baguette taken from the chin is arranged forward (in this case a general anesthesia is made)
The result obtained by this simple intervention is often very clear. ( NEW: it is also possible to move forward the chin by a simple injection of Acid Hyaluronique)
The intervention is realized under general anesthesia and lasts less than one hour. The technique consists in removing, always by oral way, a positive(surplus) osseous baguette what pulls(entails) a backward movement of the chin and a better balance of the line of the profile. A bandage maintained by a chin strap is set up for 48 hours. Rare complications, a certain sensibility of the chin and the lower lip can sometimes persist for a long time. Operating consequences: an oedema lasts about ten days.
Otoplastie is an intervention which aims at correcting definitively these anomalies by remodelling the cartilage, so as to obtain ” restuck “, symmetric ears, size and natural aspect.
The intervention is made at quite age but it is most of the time from the childhood that it is realized (from 9 years). The operation interests only the external ear and in no way affects the hearing.
The intervention is under local anesthetic or under thorough local anesthetic. The section is discreet, hidden behind the ear, and allows at the same time to restick the ear and to reconstitute the relief of the detached house(flag) to restore a normal morphology. A circular bandage protecting ears is set up during 2 in 5 days.
Rare complications: temporary pains (can exist during 1 in 2 days).
In conclusion, this simple intervention allows to correct effectively the unsightly aspect of protruding ears.
The PLASTIC SURGERY of the nose
The Esthetic Rhinoplasty allows to modify the relief of the nasal pyramid either partially, or in general. It is so possible to remove an ungraceful bump, to refine the nose at its base, to shorten him or to modify the point considered too wide. This intervention practised so in man as at the woman is practicable at the end of the growth that is from 16 or 17 years.
The intervention, is made most of the time under general anesthesia, sometimes a thorough local anesthetic is enough. She(it) lasts on average the 1:30 am. She(it) is made by the inside of nostrils, that is without any visible scar. A short stay is planned 2 in 3 days.
Operating continuation, an oedema and relatively importing bruises appear, in particular at the level of the lower eyelids, they will be reduced gradually in a few days. It is rare that such an intervention aches, he is just a little bit unpleasant to breathe by the mouth during 48 hours
Le LIFTING du front
Le LIFTING FRONTAL permet d’atténuer les rides horizontales du front et les rides inter sourcilières (rides du ”lion”). Il remonte également la partie externe des sourcils et corrige de ce fait en partie l’affaissement de la paupière supérieure. L’intervention est réalisée sous anesthésie locale approfondie et dans certains cas sous anesthésie générale. Elle dure en moyenne 1 heure et demie. L’incision est discrète, entièrement cachée dans les cheveux.
Le séjour en clinique pour cette intervention est de 24 à 48 heures dans le cas d’une anesthésie générale. Le plus souvent elle est faite sous anesthésie locale approfondie, il n’est pas nécessaire de rester hospitalisé; un pansement discret protège la cicatrice pendant 1 à 5 jours.
Suites opératoires: un œdème du front apparaît et dure en moyenne 8 jours. La douleur, si elle est présente, est habituellement très modérée. Des ecchymoses sont habituelles autour des yeux et disparaissent entre 10 et 15 jours.
Les cicatrices restent toujours discrètes. Le résultat est obtenu en 3 à 6 mois.
Les complications sont rares : Hématomes sous cutanés exceptionnels, diminution de la sensibilité de la peau, du front (rare) ou du cuir chevelu (plus fréquent surtout si on a enlevé de la peau.
En conclusion le LIFTING FRONTAL diminue les rides du front et éclaire le regard en remontant les sourcils.
The Temporal LIFTING.
The purpose of TEMPORAL LIFTING is to raise the tip of the eyebrows, to reduce the wrinkles of the crow’s feet and to raise the cheek. The procedure is accomplished most often under extensive local anesthesia and lasts about 1 hour. The incision is discreet and located above the ears who is entirely hidden in the hair. A tightening of the skin is thus performed. A very discreet dressing protects the scar for 24 hours. Following surgery, swelling and bruising at the temples that fade rapidly. The dressing is removed the next day. The scars are very little visible and the final result can be appreciated in about 2 months. Complications are rare, a hematoma (collection of curdled blood) little need a puncture.
In conclusion, this simple intervention allows a resumption of tension in the temporal region.
The purpose of LIFTING CERVICO-FACIAL is to correct the sagging of the facial tissues (cheeks, jowls, contour of the face and neck) and to reduce the wrinkles. The modern CERVICO-FACIAL LIFTING not only intervenes on the skin which it restores tension, but also on the underlying muscular plane, also collapsed. This double action makes it possible to obtain a result which is both sharper and more durable. On the other hand, a facelift practically does not act on the facial wrinkles, for example of the lips or the chin.
The weight factor is important: do not get operated if you intend to lose several pounds then you would lose the result of your facelift.
This procedure in women as well as in men is feasible when signs of aging appear. It is made on average around the age of 45 and allows to find a younger face of a few years.
The procedure takes an average of 2 ½ hours. The incision is discreet, largely hidden in the hair, and partly inside and under the ear.
Most often it is done under extensive local anesthesia, so it is not necessary to stay hospitalized. A scar-protecting dressing is set up and stored for 1 to 2 days.
Operative suites: edema of the face (swelling of the tissues) appears which gives sometimes an unpleasant feeling of tension but rarely painful.
Possible complications include delayed healing generally in the back of the ear (especially smokers), more or less severe hematomas, and sometimes decreased sensitivity of the ear and cheeks that disappear 2 to 3 months.
In conclusion, the result is often very clear and the effect of revitalizing is evident over an average duration of 7 to 10 years.
