Types of facelift
It is not possible to stop your face from aging. Most people are aware of a facelift as a procedure to regain the lost volume and youthful appearance; but few know of the different types of facelift procedures available other than the traditional method.
This is a term used for a less invasive facelift technique. The incision made is smaller and the procedure works on a smaller facial area than the traditional method. The procedure is popular as the weekend facelift since you can get it done on a Friday and be ready to get to work by Monday. The mini facelift works on your jowls and neck but the results are not that dramatic. Your first will first be numbed with an anesthesia. An S-shaped incision is then made on the sideburns near your ears. The underlying tissues are then tightened and any excessive skin is removed before the incisions are sutured.
This procedure is used on the lower third of the face smoothing out the jowls and neck. Once the local anesthesia has been administered, an S-shaped incision is made near the ear and the skin is separated from the underlying tissue. The tissue and muscles are then tightened. This procedure also targets a small area and hence small incision is used. The procedure does not take a long time when compared to the traditional facelift; neither does it lead to a long recovery period.
This procedure involves tiny incisions over your ears, on the hairline and on the mouth. During this procedure, any excess volume and sagging in the cheekbone area is taken care of. An endoscope may be used during the procedure where a tiny camera gives the surgeon access to the treatment area.
This is not really a type of facelift but just a way for closing the incisions. Rather than use sutures or stitches, the surgeon can use a surgical glue over your incision line for a complete closing of the incision. This is a safe and fast growing method used by many surgeons; and with scientific advancements, a better alternative to the traditional sutures.
