Preparing for a Facelift: What You Need to Know

Facelift is an excellent cosmetic surgical procedure that can help men and women with aging signs to refresh and rejuvenate their look. Following are some factors you should consider to have a safe and successful surgery. 

One of the main reasons for facelift surgery is to tighten and smooth the skin around the face and neck. To meet the individual needs of patients, variations in facelifts have been developed because no two faces are the same. The key to success in this procedure is to become familiar with the various types of facelift options available.


In a Traditional face lift, an incision is made from the temple area up to the ear. To reduce the visibility of scarring, the incisions are hidden in the hairline. Underlying facial tissue muscles are tightened and the skin is lifted. Excess skin and fat are also removed from the neck and facial area.   


At GLOJAS, we often recommend a mini facelift or limited incision, for patients who are young or have less excess facial skin compared to traditional facelift patients. Small incisions are made in mini facelift and its main focus is on smoothing the middle portion of the face rather than the neck and chin area. 


After the consultation, your surgeon will evaluate to find whether or not you’re suitable for a facelift. In determining candidacy, age is not the most important factor and it can be performed on people from various age groups. Factors that are more important than age are skin texture, skin condition, and bone structure. 


Strong bone structure is important as it provides much-needed support to facial skin and tissue. A facelift procedure involves stretching the skin, so a patient’s facial skin should have appropriate flexibility and elasticity to ensure successful healing. There should be some excess skin on the face or neck as it helps in tightening the skin and removing wrinkles by getting rid of that excess skin. 


If you have excess skin on your face or neck then a facelift cosmetic surgery is an ideal choice that can help to get rid of this problem. There are many things that you need to consider before opting for a facelift surgery. Consult the best cosmetic surgeon like GLOJAS to remove the excess skin from your face and skin with the help of facelift cosmetic surgery.
