Total Facelift

Surgery Overview:
Total Facelift  is a cosmetic procedure helps to reduce sagging skin and lines by removing excess skin
and fat, and tightening muscles.
The incision of full facelift will begin above the hairline at the temple area, brought in front of the ear
and looping behind the ear lobe and along the lower scalp. In full face lift the neck and face will be
tightened altogether. The exact placement of incisions is determined upon the actual examination of
facial structure. The patient may opt to do chin liposuction to enhance the result.
Operation time:
A full facelift  takes from 3 – 7 hours, depending on the patients requirements
Care  after surgery:
After the surgery, a patient will have to use cold compress for 2 days and avoid lying with the cheeks in
contact with bed or pillow for 1 month to prevent hematoma formation. Some numbness may persist
for 3-6 months. The patient should avoid any strenuous activities for at least 4-6 weeks following
surgery.  This will give the body ample time to adjust as it continues on the healing process.
Recovery period:
Facelift sutures are removed between 5-7 days after surgery, and at this point swelling and bruising
are becoming minimal. Makeup can usually be applied, and patients will start to resume some of their
activities.

We guarantee quality service and satisfying results of the operation but in cases of surgical
corrections, patient can assure a free of charge revision.

Hospital admission:
This procedure may be performed in the cosmetic surgeon’s office-based facility, an outpatient
surgery center, or at a hospital. This procedure is usually done on an outpatient basis

medications taken both prescribed and non-prescribed), physical examination, and laboratory
tests will be performed during consultation.
 Blood and urine samples will be collected for routine preoperative laboratory tests.
 Smoking must be avoided for about 3-4 weeks prior to surgery, as nicotine interferes with
circulation and will greatly affect healing process.

your recovery period.
