As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, which is what holds it tight to our face and prevents wrinkles. High exposure to sunlight–which is quite common in Florida–also speeds the aging process. For many, this can result in an appearance that makes people uncomfortable and self-conscious, and so prevents them from enjoying social activities they would usually partake in. If this sounds familiar to you, you may want to consider enlisting the assistance of a face lift specialist Miami. Our staff have years of experience and a myriad of various surgeries under their belt, ensuring that when it comes to making skin look and feel younger–all while ensuring minimal scarring and recovery time–our specialists are your number one choice.
Face lifts, or a rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgery that removes excess skin and tightens the tissue underneath. It is generally done with twilight anesthesia (which does not completely knock you out) and takes approximately two to five hours. Face lifts are used to make ones face appear more youthful by restoring elasticity. Face lifts are most effective when done alongside other surgeries such as eyelid rejuvenation and skin resurfacing. These plump eyelids and other portions of your face to give it a more natural, balanced look.
There are a number of ways to perform a facelift. A traditional one tightens the skin, removes excess ones, and the incisions are closed with sutures. Newer techniques allow for smaller incisions and more effective contouring of the face. This includes liposuction, endoscopy–which raises the skin as opposed to cutting it away–and lasers, which is similar to liposuction.
You will want to discuss with your doctor may preexisting health conditions you have and any medications you take, as this can change what anesthesia and other drugs are used during your surgery and during recovery.
