What is a Facelift?
A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that lifts and tightens the soft tissues of the face and neck. This procedure targets wrinkles, deep creases, and loose skin around the mouth, jawline, and neck. By undergoing a facelift, you can reverse the signs of aging and improve your self-confidence.
What Is the Best Type of Facelift?
There are numerous facelift techniques and surgical approaches. Dr. Lindsey Goyal is a Board Certified Facial Plastic surgeon who specializes in numerous facelift techniques including SMAS, Deep Plane, and Mini Facelift procedures. To know what the best type of facelift is for you, it is important to first undergo a consultation to assess your facial structure, anatomy, and aesthetic goals.
How Does a Facelift Work?
When you first meet with Dr. Lindsey Goyal, she will evaluate your facial structure and discuss your desired results. The surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and will take several hours, depending on the extent of the procedure. Dr. Goyal will make incisions along the hairline and around the ears to access the underlying tissues. She uses a specialized technique to lift and reposition the deeper tissues of the face. This allows her to gently redrape the skin to create a natural, more youthful-looking appearance and avoid the pulled, tight look of earlier facelift techniques. Finally, she will close the incisions and apply any dressings to the face.
What is the Recovery Process after a Facelift?
After the procedure, you will need to rest and avoid strenuous activities for several weeks. You will experience normal swelling and bruising around the treated area, but these side effects typically subside within a few weeks. Dr. Lindsey Goyal will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your incisions and manage any discomfort you may experience. By closely following these instructions, you can ensure a successful recovery.
Throughout the entire process, from the initial consultation to the final follow-up appointment, Dr. Goyal is committed to providing her patients with personalized care and attention. She uses the latest techniques and technologies to ensure optimal results with minimal downtime.
