What is Facelift Surgery?

Rhytidectomy, often known as facelift surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that alters one’s facial characteristics to make a person seem younger. Human skin and facial muscles lose elasticity and suppleness as we age, resulting in sagging, wrinkling, and fatness around the contours of our faces.

Facelift surgery in Mexico aims to correct such signs of aging by tightening and repositioning facial muscles and removing extra skin and fat deposits around the face, giving it a more youthful appearance.

It is a collection of several treatments performed on various regions of the face that can be classified as:

How Is Facelift Surgery Performed?

Step 1

Facelift surgery is often performed under general anesthesia. However, in special cases, local sedation may also be used.

The surgeon begins by injecting a solution of adrenaline beneath the skin—this aids in separating the skin layers from the underlying soft tissues.

Step 2

Depending on the area of the face being treated, the surgeon will mark the incision line to blend in with the hairline and natural wrinkles. Typically, the surgeon creates an incision below the hairline at the temple, curving downwards to the back of the ears and eventually extending horizontally within the hairline to the back of the head.

Step 3

The surgeon next delicately pulls the incised skin without harming the deeper tissues. Any muscles around the jawline, cheek, and mid-face that are sagging are tightened. Excess fat deposits are eliminated or relocated to give your face a firm and defined structure.

Step 4

Finally, the face and neck skin is carefully stretched and pushed upwards. It is shaped to fit the new face characteristics and the edges are stitched or stapled.

Before sealing the incisions, the surgeon inserts a small plastic tube to drain beneath the skin. Any blood or fluid discharges accumulated beneath the skin are sucked out during the procedure.
