The Procedural steps of Face Cosmetic Surgery

Posted on 7/24/2023 by Evan
The Procedural steps of Face Cosmetic SurgeryFace cosmetic surgery entails the removal of excess skin and sagging tissue around the neck, jowls, and face. It helps remove any visible signs of aging and return your youthful appearance. Facial cosmetic surgery is a multidisciplinary specialty that deals with plastic surgery, dermatology, and ophthalmology; this surgery encompasses both cosmetic and reconstructive procedural components. Below are the steps of a facelift procedure.


Anesthetics injections are given during facelift surgery to make the patient comfortable. Generally, anesthetics numb the area being operated on to relieve you from pain. During this procedure, anesthesia can be given either through intravenous sedation or general anesthesia depending on the type of facelift to be done. The anesthetic is expected to wear off a few hours after the surgery.

Creating an Incision

Facelift choices depend on the changes you want. These may include, limited left incision, neck lifts, and traditional facelifts. A limited left incision begins in the hairline and wraps around the ear but does not extend to the lower scalp. The neck lift incision usually starts in front of the earlobe and continues around the area down to the lower scalp. It also involves a small incision within the chin. On the other hand, the traditional facelift incision begins within the hairline, then continues around the ears and ends at the lower scalp.

Incision closing

After face lifting, the incision can be closed using an absorbable suture or non-absorbable sutures. Some specialists, however, use skin glue to help seal the incisions. Once the facelift heals, the incision lines are well concealed within the natural contours and the hairline.

In conclusion, facelift help deepen the skin folds and tighten the facial tissues of the face. Once the swelling and bruising have subsided, you will start seeing improvements. Face cosmetic surgery not only restores your youthful appearance but also helps boost your confidence.
