Why a facelift in Mexico is your best option
After reading this tagline you might be wondering a few of the next things: “What’s a facelift?” “Should I get a facelift?” “Why should I get a facelift in Mexico?”
You might already have a brief idea about what a facelift is; you’ve probably heard a million and two times before about how one of your peers from work feels like the signs of age are already showing, and how a face-lift is the miracle that he/she needs to feel better, and that’s okay.
Facelifts are among the most popular and most sought-after plastic surgery procedures. However, before we start talking about lots of the many advantages that getting a facelift could have and listing them, and why getting a facelift in Mexico is your best option, we’re going to explain what a facelift is, why people get it, its many benefits, etc.
What’s a face-lift?
A rhytidectomy (commonly known as a facelift) is literally that; a piece of skin on each side of the face is surgically pulled back to remove any of the wrinkles and creases on it, and the muscle tissue beneath the skin is surgically interfered with to give the face a more youthful shape. The remaining excess skin is removed before suturing the aforementioned flap/piece of skin.
Most of the time, patients will decide to have a platysmaplasty (commonly referred to as a neck-lift) performed on them as part of the facelift; this procedure is used to remove remaining sagging skin on the neck. However, this procedure is not considered to be a crucial or necessary part of a facelift.
Why do people get a face-lift?
Eternal youth is the dream of many; youth often represents beauty, looking young makes you feel secure, it inspires you and makes you feel healthier, makes your heart fill with joy and happiness; reminds you of sweet, tender times. Facelifts are exactly what people look for; they’re used as a resource to reconnect with a younger version of themselves.
Growing older is a beautiful process; gaining experience, learning new stuff every single day, but shouldn’t be a drag or a dreadful process. Facelifts are the solution to the marks that aging comes with, but how do these marks manifest themselves?
Most of the time, people want to get a facelift after those aforementioned signs show themselves like this:
· The face starts sagging (most often the cheeks).
· There’s excess skin/flaps start showing on your jawline.
· Creases and wrinkles appear in certain parts or all over the facial area (mostly on the forehead or on the sides of the eyes).
· The folds of skin forming on the side of your nose to the corner of your mouth start growing deeper and bigger.
It’s important to note that these are just a few of the reasons why people decide to get a face-lift.
Types of face-lifts:
Now, you’ve decided that this is the best thing you can do is get a face-lift. You’ve talked to your doctor and he/she asks what kind of face-lift you want to get. You’re now more confused than ever as you thought there was only one type.
The type of face-lift that you have to get will depend on the signs of aging that you show:
- Mini facelift: This type of facelift is a less invasive technique for patients who show a mild degree of aging on their skin (mild sagging, a few wrinkles, and creases), etc. A cosmetic surgeon will tighten deep facial tissues without having to do great incisions. This procedure can be performed using local anesthesia or general anesthesia depending on what the doctor recommends. This can help prevent exaggerated signs of aging.
- Standard facelift: This type of facelift requires a more abrasive technique as it is used to correct more advanced signs of aging. This requires the removal of skin to correct sagging and the formation of creases and wrinkles. This procedure is performed using general anesthesia.
The technique that the surgeon picks will depend on the goals that he/she and the patient wants to achieve.
The time that your face might take to heal will depend on the chosen procedure, as more invasive techniques will require longer.
How to prepare:
It is of vital importance that you follow the directions and steps that your doctor will give you. These procedures will help you prevent further complications that could appear during or after the process.
The steps will vary, but these are some of the most common instructions that you have to follow:
· You will have to answer questions about your medical background; any conditions that you have, as well as surgeries and complications derived from them; if you smoke or drink, if you’ve used or still use drugs. Your doctor might also ask you for recent records just to discard any problems that could surge because of this surgical intervention.
· Provide the doctor a full list of medications that you take and how many you take; this includes all types of drugs (prescription, herbal drugs, over-the-counter, vitamins, etc).
· Your surgeon will perform different types of exams of your face just to make sure which is the best type of face-lift option that she/he will have to perform on you.
· The doctor will ask you about the expectations and outcomes that you want to get from this operation. She/he will let you know what the results of the operation can be both for your appearance and health.
Please remember: this is not a definitive list of the steps that you will have to take before the operation. Your doctor will let you know what it is exactly what you have to do.
What to expect before, during, and after the process?
Each experience will change from person to person; this list of processes should be taken with a grain of salt as it will be different for everybody that decides to undergo this operation.
· Before the operation: You’ll be sedated. It is recommended to use general anesthesia if the type of facelift that you want to get is more invasive and abrasive. The doctor will remind you about what he/she will do during the operation.
· During the operation: As it was mentioned before, your skin will be pulled back and the muscles will be tightened. The fat in your face will most likely be manipulated to sculpt your face, or they might as well remove it. Excess skin is removed and the wound is stitched. The patient will be able to choose the type of incisions that they want before the operation.
· After the operation: It is important to note that you might experience mild to moderate pain, swelling, numbness, bruising, or a little bit of bodily fluid drainage from the incisions after the operation. If the pain becomes overwhelming or if you think that the aftermath symptoms that you’re experiencing are quite abnormal, contact your doctor immediately.
Your doctor will schedule different appointments after the procedure just to check up on the state of the operation. He/she will also let you know what the self-care steps that you have to take are.
