Types of Facelift Procedures

Mini Facelift

The mini facelift, also known as a weekend facelift, is a less invasive alternative to the traditional facelift. It targets mild to moderate signs of aging by tightening sagging skin and improving facial contours. With smaller incisions and a quicker recovery time, the mini facelift offers a convenient option for individuals seeking a rejuvenated appearance with minimal downtime.

Lower Facelift

The lower facelift targets the lower third of the face, including the jawline and neck. Incisions are strategically placed around the ears and possibly under the chin to discreetly access the underlying tissues. This procedure effectively treats sagging jowls, loose skin, deep wrinkles, and excess fat deposits in the lower face.

SMAS Facelift

The SMAS facelift targets both the skin and the underlying SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic system) layer. Incisions are typically made along the hairline, temples, and behind the ears, allowing access to the deep facial structures. This procedure treats moderate to severe signs of facial aging, such as deep wrinkles.

Revision Facelift

The revision facelift is a specialized procedure designed to address unsatisfactory outcomes from a previous facelift or to refresh the results of an aging face. It corrects issues such as recurrent sagging, asymmetry, or inadequate rejuvenation. Customized to individual needs, this procedure may involve adjusting incisions, repositioning tissues, or adding volume.

Candidates for Primary Facelift:

  • Individuals with visible signs of aging in the face and neck
  • Those experiencing sagging skin and deep wrinkles
  • People with jowls and loss of facial volume
  • Those who have realistic expectations for the procedure
  • Generally healthy individuals who are non-smokers
  • Individuals with a positive attitude and willingness to follow post-operative instructions

Primary Facelift Surgical Details

During a primary facelift procedure, you will be placed under general anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety throughout the surgery. Dr. Karan Mehta will make discreet incisions in the natural creases around your ears and possibly under your chin. These incisions allow for precise access to the underlying tissues and structures of your face. The placement of the incisions is carefully planned to minimize visible scarring and provide optimal results.

Dr. Mehta will delicately lift and reposition the underlying tissues, tightening the facial muscles and removing excess skin, if necessary. He may also address concerns such as jowls, deep creases, and fat deposits. The skin is then re-draped smoothly over the newly rejuvenated contours, giving you a natural and refreshed appearance. The incisions are closed with sutures, and any necessary dressings or bandages will be applied to aid in the healing process.

Please note that the specifics of your primary facelift may vary based on your individual needs and goals. Dr. Mehta will thoroughly discuss the details during your consultation, ensuring a customized approach that aligns with your unique facial anatomy and desired outcome.

The Recovery Process

After your primary facelift, you can expect a recovery period that involves a combination of rest, proper wound care, and follow-up visits with Dr. Mehta. Swelling, bruising, and discomfort are common in the initial days following the procedure, but these symptoms can be managed with prescribed pain medication and cold compresses. Please keep your head elevated and avoid strenuous activities during the initial recovery phase to facilitate healing.

You will receive detailed instructions on caring for your incisions, including any necessary dressing changes and hygiene practices. Dr. Mehta may also recommend specific skincare products or treatments to optimize your results.

Please attend all scheduled follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and address any concerns you may have. As you heal, you will gradually notice the rejuvenating effects of your primary facelift.

Please remember that the recovery process varies from person to person, and following Dr. Mehta’s post-operative instructions is essential. By adhering to the recommended guidelines and giving your body the necessary time to heal, you can enhance the outcome of your primary facelift and enjoy the long-lasting results you desire.
