Do you still feel young, but your facial features do not show the same radiant and youthful appearance as before? Rest assured that you can reverse such effects thanks to the top-rated plastic surgeons you can find only through Health & Wellness Bazaar, who have provided phenomenal results thanks to a facelift in Mexico.
What Does a Facelift Involve?
In general, a facelift involves tightening facial muscles, lifting tissues, sculpturing, or removing fat, and removing excess skin. The primary objective is to give patients a more youthful, smooth, and aesthetic appearance since the passage of time creates sagging skin, wrinkles, and folds.
There are two types of facelifts in Mexico: lower facelift and full facelift. A lower facelift addresses and resolves issues mainly on the neck and jawline, whereas a full facelift focuses on sagging skin and wrinkles on the cheeks, jowl, and neck. Usually, a lower facelift is perfect for younger patients who have early aging in their lower part of the face. Since both of them include the neck portion, the plastic surgeon lifts the skin off the platysma muscle and tightens it.
How Is a Facelift Performed?
Every patient is different, and their facial features might have been affecting by various factors that go from age to sun, stress, and gravity. Thus, the top-rated plastic surgeons in Health & Wellness Bazaar’s network create a personalized surgical plan for a facelift in Mexico. Still, their methods are based on two modern techniques.
The first technique is through the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS), which is a layer of firm tissue that covers the facial muscles. Therefore, regardless of the specific surgical plan for a facelift in Mexico, surgeons will focus on this essential portion of the face. However, they will address the issues according to the person’s neck angles, the skin’s thickness and texture, and, of course, his expectations or desired results.
Furthermore, in order to fix and improve the SMAS, the plastic surgeon will make tiny incisions around the ear. They could be the inner sider of the ear or in front of it, depending on its natural shape or features that will create an invisible scar or mark. During the lifting procedure, the surgeon lifts the skin from the SMAS and facial muscles. Then, he tightens the needed muscles, removes the excess skin, and attaches the skin. Thus, creating less loose muscles and skin and a much smoother look with significantly fewer wrinkles and expression lines as a result of aging.
The second technique plastic surgeons use in a facelift in Mexico is called a deep plane facelift. Basically, the surgeon follows a method of lifting the SMAS and skin simultaneously. Again, the plastic surgeon will implement these techniques according to the specific person’s features and anatomic features, such as the face shape and skin’s thickness, flexibility, and texture. For example, the deep plane facelift is best for patients under 70 years old for a natural appearance and long-term results. Additionally, this method is optimal for those whose skin is thicker and have bigger facial muscles.
An entire facelift procedure can last from 2 to 4 hours, depending on the type of facelift and surgical techniques used for optimal results. After that, the patient goes to the recovery room to wait until the anesthesia wears off.
Who Is Eligible for a Facelift?
Men and women who wish to get a facelift in Mexico usually range between the mid-40s all the way to their 80s. The most suitable candidates for a facelift are those with clear and visible signs of aging on their face. For instance, they have neck bands, their facial skin has become loose or saggy, and they have flabby cheeks, wrinkles, or jowls.
In short, a person is eligible for a facelift if he or she has one or more of the following:
- Excess fat or skin that starts to hang
- Has jowls or loose neck skin
- Muscle banding of jowl lines in the neck
- Has fat deposits under the chin
- Has a turkey wattle or double chin
- Has wrinkles or excessive expression lines
- Has features that have changed due to age, sun, stress, or accidents
How Is the Recovery Process After a Facelift?
Once the anesthesia has completely lost its effect, the plastic surgeon will perform a final assessment to give his approval for discernment. Depending on the patient and type of procedure, the surgeon might keep him for one night. A patient may go home to recover with some bandages on his face. Since he might feel a little dizzy or light-headed, it is highly recommended not to drive or operate heavy machinery. Therefore, the all-inclusive packages at Health and Wellness Bazaar include all ground transportation so patients can simply relax, recover, and enjoy the results.
Furthermore, as part of the post-op recovery, a patient must eat soft foods or protein shakes only, especially during the first few days. Additionally, it will be crucial not to drink from straws or make any sucking movements. For resting on a couch or sleeping on a bed, it will be better to have a firm cushion to elevate the head from the rest of the body. Regular or soft pillows can put pressure on the ears where the surgeon might have made some stitches.
It will be completely normal during the first few weeks to feel some swelling, itchiness, or a sense of tightness. However, those side effects will disappear gradually. The surgeon might have a follow-up appointment in a couple of days to assess the bruising or swelling and change bandages if needed.
After a few weeks, a patient can resume sleeping on his side but not on his stomach until the plastic surgeon says it is ok to do so. Usually, after 30 days, patients can resume their everyday routine and gradually increase the intensity of physical activity and exercise. Besides, it will be essential to stay out of the sun for three to four months and use a high SPF sunscreen if he must go outside.
