Questions and answers

What is facelift?

Facelift is a cosmetic surgery that allows giving a face a more youthful appearance. During a facelift, excessive skin is removed, and then a doctor forms a “youthful” contour of the face or neck. As a result, the skin becomes smooth, young, and without wrinkles.

Facelift can be performed both in a surgical and a non-surgical way.

What are the indications for facelift surgery?

Facelift surgery is recommended for people aged 40-60. Rarely, but it can be also performed for patients aged over 70. Indications for a facelift procedure may be the following:

  • double chin
  • droopy eyelids
  • deep facial wrinkles
  • drooping eyes corners
  • vertical wrinkles on the cheeks
  • facial soft tissue ptosis
  • excessive fat and loose skin on the neck.

If you are not satisfied with your appearance and want to do facelift surgery, consult with a doctor to decide whether you are a good candidate for the procedure. 

What are contraindications for facelift?

Modern facelift techniques are safe and do not have many contraindications. However, in the case when a surgical facelift is performed, a procedure is not recommended for people with:

  • neoplasms (especially, malignant ones)
  • bleeding disorder
  • severe diseases of the internal organs
  • some disorders of the nervous system
  • severe hypertonia
  • epilepsy.

To the relative contraindications may be included the following conditions:

  • pregnancy
  • lactation
  • infections
  • inflammatory processes
  • skin diseases.

If you have any of these conditions or other health disorders, inform your doctor to discuss the possibility of facelift surgery in your case.

What is a preoperative preparation for facelift in Mexico?

Preoperative preparation for facelift surgery in Mexico can differ depending on the type of procedure. Fora  surgical operation, it consists of the following steps:

  1. A doctor surveys a patient; the future result is discussed.
  2. Analysis (blood and urine tests, ECG, examinations for blood clotting, etc.). 
  3. A patient needs to give up smoking, drinking alcohol, taking some pills for 2 weeks before surgery.
  4. 8 hours before a procedure, a patient does not eat and drink.

What is a facelift process?

The facelift process depends on the type of the procedure. This an outpatient operation, so admission is not required. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia or sedation. The process takes 2-5 hours.

First of all, an anesthesiologist applies a chosen type of anesthesia. Then, a plastic surgeon makes an incision in front of the ear, extending it to the hairline. If the reduction of the chin is planned, a doctor also makes an incision under it.

When all incisions have been made, a plastic surgeon separates the skin from other tissues. Then, skin is lifted with special instruments, and its excess is removed.

When all manipulations are done, a surgeon fixates and lifts tissues and muscles, all punctures are stitched up with absorbable sutures. Then, special bandages are applied.

How long does a full recovery from facelift take?

An intensive recovery period takes 1 month.

After surgery, small hematomas and swelling occur. However, they disappear soon. A patient can feel a discomfort in the places of stitching. If necessary, a doctor prescribes painkillers.

In 2 days, the bandage is removed. 

A patient can return to a normal lifestyle in about a month. 

The final result is observed in half of the year. 

What are the side effects of facelift?

Despite the fact that facelift is considered a quite safe procedure, side effects may also take place. Among them are:

  • hematomas. They usually occur in 24 hours after surgery. Luckily, they disappear soon.
  • Scarring. In most cases, scars are hardly visible or hidden under the hairline.
  • Nerve injury. The doctor’s manipulations may damage nerves, so a patient can lose the sensitivity of some skin areas. Normally, it recovers after some time.
  • Bleeding (rare).
  • Infections (rare).
  • Hair loss. Temporary or permanent hair loss is possible around the places of incisions.

How many times is it possible to have a facelift in Mexico?

You can do facelift as many times as you need. Note that the result of facelift lasts about 7-12 years.

How many years will I look younger after facelift?

Facelift cannot slow down or stop facial aging. It allows you improving your face making it younger at the moment. The result completely depends on your age, bone and skin structure, hereditary, lifestyle. Also, you need to be realistic about the result: it is impossible to look 20 years old when you are 60 in fact.

Are the scars noticeable after facelift in Mexico?

After facelift surgery, scars remain. However, they are almost invisible. The deal is that a doctor makes incisions in the hairy area to hide the traces. Also, the professionalism of a plastic surgeon plays a crucial role: experienced doctors in Mexico manipulate very accurately, so scars are tiny and almost inconspicuous.
