A Full Facelift Can Help You Look Rested and Rejuvenated
The natural aging process, sun exposure, and other factors can cause wrinkles and other signs of aging in every area of the face. Dr. Marco A. Rodas Nava in Tijuana, Mexico, offers full facelift surgery that can tighten the loose, wrinkled areas in the brow, midface, and jawline. This comprehensive surgery is designed to provide powerful rejuvenation that looks entirely natural.
Anyone who is unsatisfied with the appearance of loose, creased, or sagging facial skin occurring in each third of the face may be a candidate for full facelift surgery.
There are three primary kinds of facelift surgery: a full facelift, mid facelift, and mini facelift. Patients whose primary concern is the appearance of the neck and lower face may be best suited for a mini facelift. If your primary area of concern is the middle of the face, such as the area under the eyes, smile lines, and a downturned mouth—a mid facelift may be a more appropriate treatment. If you only wish to address wrinkling and other signs of aging in the brow, a brow lift may be your best option.
If you want to look youthful and rested - but not like a plastic surgery patient - Dr. Rodas Nava can help you achieve your goal.
Adult men and women considering any type of facelift surgery should be in good overall health, with no medical conditions that could increase the risk of complications or inhibit healing. You can depend on Dr. Rodas Nava to carefully assess your candidacy before recommending any plastic surgery procedure. During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your cosmetic goals and preferences with him. He will take the time to address any questions or concerns to help set your mind at ease and manage your expectations.
About the Procedure
On the day of your surgery, you will be taken to a private surgical suite where a trained anesthesiologist will administer general anesthesia to ensure you are comfortable throughout the entire procedure. Once you are sedated, your surgeon will begin creating incisions. The incisions run down in front of the ears and curve under the hairline. Once the incisions are made, Dr. Rodas Naa can tighten underlying tissues and trim excess tissue. In some cases, liposuction may be used to remove excess fat tissue. Finally, the incisions are closed in a way that subtly tightens facial skin to restore youthful contours.
After the procedure, patients should plan on resting and avoiding activity for about a week. You may experience temporary swelling, bruising, and tenderness, but any discomfort should be manageable with the medications prescribed by Dr. Rodas Nava. Keeping your head elevated and limiting activity will aid in healing during the first week.
There will be sutures along the hairline, securely protected by heavy bandaging. Sutures and bandaging are usually removed after about five days.
Recovery can take several weeks, depending on the extent of your surgery. Patients are usually able to return to their everyday routines in about 10 days. Post-operative appointments will allow your surgeon to monitor your recovery. You may experience some numbness following your surgery. This is normal and should subside in the following weeks.
