What No One Tells You About Face Lift Surgery

A face lift is also sometimes referred to as a rhytidectomy. The word "rhytidectomy" comes from the Greek root "rhytis" which means wrinkle while the other half of the word "ektome” means excision. The excision of facial skin helps to rid the face of wrinkles. In the beginning a face lift operation simply involved the tightening of facial skin but plastic surgeons soon ascertained that in order for there to be lasting and significant results of a face lift, it was necessary to go deeper into the layers of skin tissue and restructure and where necessary, excise the skin as well. The face lift operation was altered to address these points and today a face lift is sometimes called rhytidoplasty because it makes use of surgical techniques that take into account all layers of the skin and not just the surface layer. When the words "face lift" are used technically they refer to the skin that exists on the face from the cheeks and down to and including the neck. The forehead and the eyes are taken care in a separate procedure although in many cases they are performed in a concurrent fashion.

Most people who undergo face lifts are pleased with the end result. It is very important however to be realistic about having a face lift procedure. Aging is a process that continues and therefore a face lift will not yield permanent results. A face lift can make a person look years younger and plastic surgeons estimate that most face lifts will allow a face to look younger, fresher and more vibrant for a period of ten years and in some cases longer.

How long your face lift lasts depends on many individual factors such as the condition of the patient’s skin before the surgery was undertaken, whether or not the patient smokes and/or drinks, and how old the person was when they had the face lift surgery. Face lift surgery is mainly done on individuals between the ages of 40 and 70 years of age. Keep in mind that having a second surgery is always something you can consider in the future. Many people over the age of 70 also get face lifts and some people decide to have a face lift in their 20s or 30s, not to slow the signs of aging but instead to improve upon facial features that are in place due to hereditary.

A face lift can reduce and eliminate a great deal of wrinkles on the face but not necessarily all of them. It might be necessary to undergo other types of treatments such as laser resurfacing around the lips, the eyes and beneath the nose.

There are types of face lifts that do not require surgery so if going under the knife and having incisions in your face bothers you consider such procedures as the laser face lift, the thread face lift, Thermage skin tightening or the microcurrent face lift. All of these procedures are less expensive than plastic surgery as well as being virtually free of pain, not to mention minimally invasive and very effective.
