Give Your Face A Lift!August 30, 2013
With all the anti-aging options in the market, we still have some patients at the Plastic Surgery of Shreveport who would prefer a procedure that is fast and guaranteed to do the job even if it is more invasive compared to other treatments that promise to bring your youthful glow back. Face lifts or Rhytidectomy is a sure way of literally taking years off your face and make it appear younger and healthier. This procedure involves lifting the skin off the face to allow your doctors to tighten the tissues underneath and to reposition the skin over the face to achieve a more youthful look. Not only does this result positively for your appearance, but it also contributes in making a patient more confident about themselves and reduces any anxiety that they may feel over looking older.
What happens during a facelift procedure? Patients are given general or intravenous anesthesia to numb the skin. Our surgeon will then make an incision that will run from the temple up to the circles of the ears. The skin flap is raised and the doctor will tighten the tissues and the muscles underneath the skin. The doctor may remove some fat and excess skin if he finds it necessary. To finish the procedure, the doctor will re-drape the skin flap over the face and reposition it and the incisions will be secured with sutures. The incisions will not show because these are located along the patient’s hairline or a location in the face where it would naturally crease. You should expect your face to be bandaged after the procedure and the dressings will be removed about 1 to 2 days after. Your doctor will remove the stitches in about 5 to 10 days after the face lift.
