The lifts must be customized. At the consultation your surgeon will examine your face, your skin quality and your bone structure, I will discuss possibilities that surgery offers.
Each person has a variety of anatomical features that cause differences in resilience and influences the final result of the surgery. Each case can vary in placement and extent of the incisions, areas of the face that is looking to improve, use or not of complementary techniques such as eyelid surgery, higher cheekbones, etc..and, the duration of the intervention.
Currently, there are many techniques in which there are differences in the location and length of scars, but usually the incision begins in the temples, in the hairline, extending into the natural lines that exist in front of the ear and continues around the lobe, behind the ear and scalp. Depending on the particular case your surgeon prefer place surrounding the pin scars and hairline at the temples, preventing scars from entering the hair. When the collar needs special treatment, it is necessary to make an incision just below the chin.
The lift is basically tightening the muscle and skin layers, removing the remaining tissue. Once completed, the wounds are closed temporarily leaving some small drains under the skin so it does not collect any exudate or blood. Finally, place a bandage.
The lift must be performed in a licensed clinic and is performed under sedation or general anesthesia depending on the particular case.
Your stay in the clinic depends on the type of anesthesia and the extent of lifting.
