Facelift

What Is Facelift?

Facelift, medically known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that is done to improve the visible signs of ageing in the face and neck. Depending on the amount of lax skin and the depth of fold lines, the surgeon will decide on the type of facelift procedure to be undertaken.

Various facelift procedures include, endoscopic facelift, mini facelift, classical facelift, and liquid facelift. Liquid facelift is a minimally invasive procedure and is done with Botox and dermal fillers. Facial fat grafting technique can also be applied for facelift to enhance the lost volume.

What is the Procedure of Facelift?

A facelift is the literal lifting and tightening of the muscle structure under the face skin. Depending on the patient’s needs, there are three methods of doing this lift: SMAS ectomy, SMAS plication and MACS lift. 

Under the guidance of Dr Rajat Gupta, we ensure that we give our patients exactly what they want. We do not provide them with unnatural results or a blown-out face. Instead, we work with their natural facial contours for the best results.

Recovery After Facelift?

  • Outpatient procedure
  • You may have some swelling, bruising & discomfort in the first 24-48 hours.This is only temporary and diminishes as the recovery proceeds.
  • The surgeon might place a bandage around your face to minimize swelling and bruising.
  • Small tubes may be present to draw off any excess blood or fluid.
  • You can start your daily routine work from next day after the surgery and can go for a walk etc.
