2. Facelift With Short Incision

Incisions are located along the hairline above each ear and/or in the natural creases surrounding the ear. This kind of facelift surgery is performed when a patient is young and his/her skin quality is good.

3. Lower Facelift Incision

  1. Subcutaneous Facelift

3. Short Scar Facelift

It is performed for young patients having a good-quality of skin and for those who don’t wish to have an incision behind the ear. The SMAS is either placated or excised. The neck is tucked either by liposuction or below chin incision is made, which depends on the need for the facelift surgery.

4. Macs Lift

A small incision is made and the LOP placation of the muscle facia is performed. There are 2 variations of MACS LIFT as follows:

  • Simple Macs Lift: It improves the lower face & neck.
  • Extended Macs lift: It is performed along with a lower face and neck, which also improves cheek and lower eyelids.

5. Endoscopic Facelift

Avoid visible scar when the patient is relatively young. It is specially performed for the patients who are seeking for mid-face correction. The deep plan stands deep to periosteum face tissue lift is done.

6. Lower Facelift Surgery

  • Lower facelift surgery is performed by making the incision starts from below the ear and goes behind the ear and back into the hairline.
  • It tightens the lower two-thirds of the face and any jowls that may have appeared at the jaw from sagging skin.

7. Ancillary Procedures

The variety of other procedures, which can further enhance the outcome of the facelift surgery, which include: –

  • Facial implants or fat transfer to improve the contour
  • Resurfacing techniques to improve the tone & texture of the facial skin

Assessing the problematic area:

On the day of the surgery, the discussion will be done again.

Generally, an incision is made that can be hidden in the natural contour of your ear, then extending around the earlobe and back into the hairline. Once they heal, they are hardly visible.

Through these discreet incisions, your surgeon will free the skin from the underlying tissue.

Tissue Reposition:

Deep tissue is manipulated and re-positioned into a natural, youthful location. This is pulled differently in each individual depending upon their facial characteristics and aging changes.

Here the aim is to achieve the best of results in the least traumatic way with minimum blood loss.

  • Suture: The incisions will be closed with sutures that may dissolve or may need to be removed after a few days. Once healed, the incision lines from a facelift are well concealed within the hairline and in the natural contours of the face and ear.

After Surgery:

The incision areas are covered with gauze. You will be provided with pressure garments and post-surgical care instructions once you’ve awakened fully from the anesthesia. The Doctor and the surgical staff will be there to assist you.
