What does it consist of?
The lift or facelift surgery in Delhi is a surgical procedure to improve the visible signs of aging in the face and neck. It is one of the most popular interventions in cosmetic surgery in Delhi, indicated for people over 40 years.
Over the years, the skin and muscles of the face begin to lose tone and elasticity. Facial Lifting cannot stop the aging process, but it can improve its most visible signs by tensing the deeper structures, readapting the skin of the face and neck, and removing selected areas of skin.
The best candidate is one who has a face and neck that has begun to relax, but whose skin still has elasticity.
The techniques used today by a plastic surgeon in Delhi differ greatly from those used a few years ago when only looking to stretch the skin. Today much emphasis is placed on the relocation of internal structures that, over time, are flaccid or falling. This allows to achieve a much more natural and harmonic effect.
Lifting can be done in isolation, or it can be complemented with other procedures such as eyelid surgery, the application of laser technology (resurfacing) to eliminate crow’s feet, gill liposuction, etc.
The scars are located in different places depending on the type of lifting. However, they always hide in strategic areas such as the crease behind the ear or under the hair, so they are hardly visible.
Duration of the operation and anesthesia
The intervention lasts about 2 to 3 hours, varying depending on the type of correction to be performed. The intervention is performed on an outpatient basis or with admission depending on the complexity of the technique.
The anesthesia used is usually local with sedation, so the patient is totally relaxed and insensitive to pain. During the intervention, our anesthesiologist will take care of your safety and comfort at all times. Your health comes first. In the most complex cases, general anesthesia is used.
Recovery is rapid and the postoperative period as a whole is easily tolerated since the discomfort caused by the intervention is not important. Even so, the plastic surgeon in Delhi will recommend not doing activities that require physical exertion during the first days after the operation. Most patients can perform their normal tasks after 1 week. During the 1st week following the intervention, it is preferable not to leave, because of the post-surgical inflammation of the face. Likewise, it is not convenient to sunbathe during the first 3 months of the postoperative period.
Usually, the result of the operation can be seen immediately, although there is a logical inflammation that will last about 2 or 3 months. To maintain the results it is convenient to use complementary medical and cosmetic treatments.
