Introduction of facelift
Face Cosmetic Surgeries are gaining popularity due to its unmatched results and defined face structure effects. As we age, the facial tissues decrease in volume, and the skin begins to lose its elasticity. In due course, this results in wrinkles and sagging on the lower face, and drooping skin on the neck. This might seem as an irreversible part of growing old, but for people who are worried by these aging signs, Face Cosmetic Surgeries can come as ultimate saviours to them.
What is Facelift or Rhytidectomy?
Facelift or Rhytidectomy is a cosmetic surgery that helps in lifting and firming the drooping facial tissues to reinstate a more naturally youthful facial appearance. Facelift help people attain their desired look with minimal pain and efforts. People can actually look younger and have their youthful face back as if it has turned the clock backward. If put simple, Facelift surgeries can make you look younger and better by removing excess fat, drooping skin, smoothening deep folds, and lifting and tightening the facial tissues.
How Facelift or Rhytidectomy is Performed?
The loss of youthful face contours happens due to various factors that include skin thinning, UV sun damage, loss of facial fat, gravity, cigarettes, as well as heredity and depression or stress. Fillers or fat transfers are suggested by the surgeons depending upon your requirements and proportion of skin damage to replace the lost fatty volume. Skin treatments such as IPL, dermabrasion, peels or laser is offered to improve the overall appearance and texture of the skin.

Candidacy for Facelift Cosmetic Surgery
During the personal consultation, the patient’s current skin texture and condition will be examined by the ALPS surgery team to determine whether or not he or she is a good candidate for the Facelift Cosmetic Surgery. The major factors we will look at include:
Elasticity of the Skin
The ideal facelift candidate has skin that contains some amount of flexibility. Facelift Surgery stretches your facial skin to remove wrinkles and tighten the sagging skin. The best results usually depend on how flexible your skin still is.
Age plays a major role is undergoing any of the cosmetic surgeries. With emerging medical treatments and negligible pain and discomfort in Facelift procedures, people as old as 60 years can opt for it with proper and expert guidance.
A well-defined underlying bone structure in your face can provide support for the meticulous facial alterations that make it easy for surgeons to perform the surgery and for patients to recover.
Health issues like blood pressure, diabetes, bleeding disorder, or any other skin diseases can hinder the surgical process. Thus, one must be in his or her good overall health before choosing such surgeries and recover from them.
What are the Benefits of Undergoing Facelift Surgery?
Tightens the Facial Muscles
The underlying structures of your face, also known as the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS), tend to weaken and sag with age. Facelift surgeries can help you tighten and rearrange this underlying structure into a better configuration.
Repairing loose skin
Drooping skin will be carefully trimmed and tightened to restore a more youthful, natural look. The deep wrinkles and excess fat is removed while fillers are implanted where needed. This helps people getting the younger looking face and good textured skin.
Improving facial contours
Facelift helps in restoring a smoother look to the cheeks and lower eyelids, and creates a more attractive jawline contour, eliminating jowls and smoothing out the neck area.
