Face surgery is surgery of facial rejuvenation. It is also known as facelift or facelift and is aimed at eliminating the visible signs of aging such as loss of muscle tone, wrinkles and fat deposits (or lack of facial fat). If we divide the face into three parts we get an upper third (forehead furrowed), middle third (cheekbone and cheeks) and third lower (mandible and chin). Each of these thirds need a specific technique for rejuvenation so that each patient needs a personalized assessment.
This surgery is a set of techniques for facial rejuvenation. Its aim is to reposition the facial tissues to make the face again her young and firm position. The ideal patients for this procedure are people of good general health, mentally stable; they have seen an aging on their face. Ideal candidates are those who are old enough to want to improve their appearance, remove wrinkles, fat deposits and excess skin.
The patient can expect great results from this procedure. Many people are satisfied with these techniques of facial rejuvenation that offers permanent results. Face surgery removes the deepest wrinkles and restores firmness to facial muscles that run down with age, external aggression, stress or genetic issues. The facelift patient will get a much younger and visibly firm face.
The consultation is ideal for the doctor / patient communication space. The patient should tell the doctor what your expectations about the surgery are and what their doubts. The surgeon will explain to the patient all the options and procedures by its characteristics and needs. The advice of a qualified professional is essential so the patient must meet medical recommendations.
Anesthesia in this procedure may be local with sedation or general, depending on the preferences of the physician and the patient, and the characteristics of the chosen technique. Once you've made the appropriate incisions, the surgeon will reposition the tissues to tighten the face.
The incision also depends on the area to be treated and technique chosen. Generally incisions are made in areas of low visibility so there are no facial scars. If the procedure is centered on the lower and middle thirds, it is likely that the incisions are made behind the ears to tighten the area. If, however, one wants to treat upper third, the incision remains in the hairline. The method you follow these incisions seeks to minimize the possibility of visible scars.
It can be combined surgery face with implant placement cheekbone and chin. In such cases, the incisions for placement of the prosthesis are those of each of the above procedures.
