As the years go by, you would have surely noticed the wrinkles, “smile lines”, bags of fat around the lips and cheeks, and especially the loose, sagging, or excess skin on the neck, becoming more visible and it seems as if all our skin begins to hang.
The two main causes of these effects are:
- Gravity: all tissues sag with age.
- Loss of volume: furrows and wrinkles become deeper due to the atrophy of our tissues, as a result, they are much more noticeable.
Rhytidectomy or facelift is a surgery that helps us to correct all these aging changes that time has provoked. We are not going to lie to you, it is an extensive surgery and it has a somewhat prolonged recovery period, but with incredible results. When you have already tried all kinds of creams, radiofrequency, ultrasound, and thread lifts and you haven’t gotten the results you are looking for, this surgery is for you. Just so you know, with the technique developed in Cirugía Plástica Lomas, we do not generate any change in the shape of your face or your expressions. Your face remains the same, just from 10 to 20 years younger.
Recovery time: from 3 to 4 weeks.
Type of Anesthesia: General, always under the supervision of a certified anesthesiologist, after cardiovascular evaluation.
When you schedule your first appointment, remember to have handy a photo from 15 to 20 years ago, in order to understand and achieve what you are looking for: To be you, just several years younger.
