This surgery involves the rejuvenation of the face and is known as a “facelift”. It consists of several procedures, such as the rejuvenation of the forehead, eyebrows, eyelids, cheeks, nose and neck. In recent years, fat grafting or lipografts have been added on the face, which allows the recovery of the volume of the face lost by the changes of the aging.
When I do this surgery, I always seek to help the patient rejuvenate his or her face (approximately 10 years) preserving his facial features. This surgery is mainly done on people over 50 years old, but its best effects are seen in patients between 35 and 45 years because there are no definitive wrinkles; with these surgical techniques, we can help slow down the aging process.
The global trend is to perform these surgeries in a combined way that will lift the tissues and recover the volume of the face always looking for a natural, fresh and youthful appearance.
The scar will be camouflaged. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia, and monitored under the supervision of the anesthesiologist with a recovery time of one week.
