How to keep natural beauty and youth as long as possible? First, a healthy diet, physical activity, and skin care cosmetics become faithful assistants on this path. Later, they are joined by cosmetic procedures, including beauty injections.

But what to do when the listed methods cease to help? It’s time to move on to decisive and the most effective measures like facial plastic surgery.

What Is Facelift?

Modern facial plastic surgery allows you to look 8-10 years younger in just a few hours. How is this possible?

A facelift is a complex of surgical interventions that allow you to reduce the manifestation of age-related changes. It affects not only the skin but also deeper structures — subcutaneous adipose tissue and the muscular-aponeurotic system.

Currently, plastic surgery favors endoscopic techniques. Thanks to them, the following results are achieved:

  • Minimal trauma;
  • Fast recovery;
  • Simultaneous tightening in several areas.

Correction of all areas of the face is called a circular lift. Plastic surgeons also offer independent interventions in certain areas:

  • Lower 2/3 of the face;
  • Middle zone of the face;
  • Neck and lower face;
  • Eyelids;
  • Eyebrows and forehead.

Depending on the volume of work and the individual characteristics of the patient, a facelift is performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia. The duration of the intervention is two to four hours.

How to care for your face after surgery

For several days after a facelift, surgeons recommend wearing a compression bandage. A noticeable swelling on the face persists for 7-10 days, and bruises — for up to two weeks. On average, after 10-14 days, patients return to a full-fledged habitual life noticeably rejuvenated and happy.

Face after plastic surgery care involves the use of sunscreen with SPF 50 and a ban on being in direct sunlight for a month. Also, during this period, it is not recommended to visit baths and saunas.
