Is the Traditional Facelift Changing?

Traditional Facelift Changing

A facelift is a common plastic surgery procedure which is medically known as rhytidectomy. It is one of the oldest forms of plastic surgery according to historical records. The invention of the facelift can be dated back to somewhere between 1901 and 1907.

Facelift History

Way back in the early 1900’s, the procedure we know today was obviously quite different. For starters, the results were mediocre at best, and the surgery came at a very steep price. There were a lot of complications, with the most common occurring due to infections from nonsterile practices and shoddy anesthesia methods.

How Facelifts Have Changed in the Last 50 Years

How Facelifts Have Changed

Once upon a time, when someone visited a plastic surgeon for a facelift, the procedure was quite simple. Surgeons simply placed patients under anesthesia, tightened and repositioned the skin on the face, and then removed the remnants. Though it did remove lines, wrinkles, and sagging, it was notorious for creating a “stiff” appearance. Fortunately, times have changed, and surgeons now use a multi-faceted approach to perform facelift procedures.

Does your Face Look Tired? 5 Procedures to give it a Fresh New Look

Fresh Face

Were you shocked to see how tired and aged your face appeared to be the last time you took a look in the mirror? If this is the case, having one – or more – of the following procedures carried out will not only result in you looking more radiant; you will end up looking many years younger as well.

Blepharoplasty

Eyelid surgery can be performed on men and women who may have noticed their eyelids drooping or sagging with age. When performing blepharoplasty, surgeons will make tiny incisions in the creases of the upper and lower eyelids and remove any excess skin or fat that may have accumulated there. Once this is done, it helps to firm the eyelid to the point where the skin is no longer loose or sagging, leaving patients looking younger and rejuvenated.

A New Growing Trend in Plastic Surgery – Threading

Threaded Facelift

These days, men and women around the world go to great lengths to make themselves appear younger. They undergo facelifts, get filler injections, and even use Botox to essentially paralyze and relax muscle groups to release their wrinkles. One new trend, known as threading, may also work to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by creating a natural-looking lift that does not appear frozen in place.

What Is Threading?

In short, threading is a process by which a plastic surgeon inserts thin and sometimes barbed threads into the face to lift it up. It essentially provides a “support system” that, while far less invasive than a traditional facelift, still provides more natural-looking results than fillers or Botox. Although it may not sound appealing, it is actually not as bad as it sounds. Many surgeons call it one of the most innovative facelift techniques to date, and more and more doctors around the world are offering it to their patients.

Stage 1 – Rest

One of the worst things you can do for your body after a facelift is stay in bed. Although you will not feel like doing much for the first few days, and the painkillers may make it difficult to do much at all, you should feel good enough by the third or fourth day to move around a little. Chances are good that you will feel some fatigue and maybe a little nausea for the first few days, but these will quickly subside. Remember that movement lends to circulation, and when you can circulate the blood through your body, this helps speed your recovery. This first stage lasts about a week.
