Youth has its charms and in a society obsessed with appearance, it can have its positive ramifications. However, ageing (and other factors like stress, UV exposure or gravity) do not let the charms of youthfulness to linger long and can turn your skin to appear progressively pale and sagging. Though it is a natural process that you can do nothing about save accepting the change, you can do your bid – to regain your youthful looks or at least be closer to it. The way to go about reclaiming your ‘youthful looks’ even when age has caught up with you is through a surgical facelift in Agra. Let us understand the process in detail.
What is a facelift procedure and how effective it is?
Also known as rhytidectomy, facelift helps your facial skin to gain a youthful appearance by removing excess fat, restoring its elasticity, and removing the deep creases. The otherwise hanging skin under your chin aka ‘jowls’ or the deposition of excess fat leading to the formation of ‘double chin’ can be set right by tightening the underlying tissues. Facelift surgery in Agra, especially at the state of the art facility like Saraswat Hospital and under the watchful eyes of experts like Dr. Satya Saraswat (MS, M.Ch, and DNB), Dr. Preeti Saraswat (PG Diploma in Clinical Cosmetology with ABHRS certification) and their experienced team, can give you astonishing results. Yes, post the procedure, you would end up looking at the mirror in disbelief while wearing a smile. The procedure to eliminate or reduce this atrophy is by restoring its tissue volume. The atrophy becomes visible with the distribution of fat and the arrival of crease lines.
Who are eligible for face cosmetic surgery?
Any person with sagging skin and displaying prominent crease lines/wrinkles can undergo this procedure. However, the person should have a strong and well defined bone structure not to speak of possessing some elasticity. Should a person is hale and hearty then irrespective of his or her age (yes, ranging from the forties to the eighties,) a surgical facelift in India can be done. Although the procedure would not stop the normal ageing process, it can make the person look youthful with removed crease lines, more fuller muscle volume, and tightening of the skin. Surely, it can enhance the self confidence of the person a few notches higher.
Duration of the facelift procedure
It is a fairly simple procedure where the patient can go home the same day. It can be performed under local or general anaesthesia and can take around 3 to 4 hours. The patient may feel slight discomfort with swelling and bruising, which will disappear in two weeks time. Post the procedure, the scars will not be visible except the ones behind the ear.
Facelift surgery is a fairly ordinary procedure, which may carry the following risks.
Accumulation of blood below the skin, which is treatable
Skin Necrosis can occur due to protein C deficiency resulting in a scar behind or in front of the ear
Temporary facial nerve injury and hair loss
