If your face shows signs of aging, and you want to do something about it, rhytidectomy, or facelift surgery, may be what’s right for you. A facelift is a surgical procedure. Non-surgical facial treatments cannot achieve the same level of results, and are only good for staving off the early signs of aging. As an individualized procedure, Facelift surgery is something you so for your own self image and confidence.
Dr. Blinski is a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon. Not every doctor who performs Facelifts is a Plastic Surgeon. In fact, some of them are actually General Practioners who have taken a single weekend seminar to learn a single cosmetic procedure like the Facelift. Wouldn’t you feel more confident knowing that the physician performing your procedure is a plastic surgeon with a comprehensive education and certification credentials?
Since he is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, as well as a widely recognized expert on cosmetic procedures, Dr. Blinski has a comprehensive understanding of every nuance of other cosmetic procedures, such as Botox, Neck Lift, or Restylane. Dr. Blinski is also experienced in other types of cosmetic surgeries, such as Liposuction or Breast Augmentation. No matter what your individual situation may be, you can feel confident that Dr. Blinski will choose the procedure best for you.
The Facelift Procedure
A Facelift must be performed under some kind of anesthesia. The most common choices for a Facelift are IV sedation and general anesthesia.
A traditional Facelift begins with an incision in the hairline (at the temples) and continues around the outside of the ear, ending at the lower scalp. From the face, neck and jowls, fat may be redistributed about. Tissue is repositioned, and the layers of skin, as well as the muscles of the face, are also lifted. Skin is stretched and draped over the lifted facial contours. Excess skin is neatly trimmed away. A secondary incision, under the patient’s chin, may be needed to improve an aging neck. Finally, skin adhesives or sutures are used close up the patient.
After undergoing Facelift surgery, someone will need to take you home and remain with you for a minimum of 24 hours. In very few circumstances, Dr. Blinski may suggest a short stay in the hospital.
Your entire face may be taped and wrapped in order to minimize swelling and bruising. A thin tube might be used to drain any excess fluid or blood that might collect underneath the skin during recovery.
Bruising and swelling usually takes about 2 weeks to subside, but can last up to 2 months. Generally speaking, you can return to work after 1 week.
