01.What is Face lift?

[av_hr class=’invisible’ height=’2′ shadow=’no-shadow’ position=’center’ custom_border=’av-border-thin’ custom_width=’50px’ custom_border_color=” custom_margin_top=’10px’ custom_margin_bottom=’10px’ icon_select=’yes’ custom_icon_color=” icon=’ue808′ font=’entypo-fontello’] The term “facelift” describes a surgical procedure to lift and reposition aging, sagging skin on the face. The medical term for a facelift is called a Rhytidectomy, which translates to wrinkle (rhytid), removal (-ectomy). Despite the official terminology, a facelift is not designed to merely remove wrinkles. In order to achieve this patients need skin resurfacing or additional nonsurgical treatment after surgery. A facelift’s objective is to regenerate the midface, jawline and neck areas to give the patient a younger & fresher look.

During the surgery, the SMAS layer of muscle under the skin is first elevated anteriorly towards the corner of the mouth, allowing the reduction of jowling along the jawline. Once the SMAS and platysma are elevated, they are then secured using an absorbable suture in both the cheek and behind the ear against the mastoid bone. Dr. Kim precisely trims the excess skin to fit, then meticulously places sutures to create a near-invisible scar. Over-exaggerated results are never desired and Dr Kim helps patients achieve the most desired rejuvenation with the most natural & aesthetically pleasing result.

What is a Face Lift?

With the help from supporting ligaments, facial skin and muscles are firmly attached to the facial skeleton. With age and gravity, these attachments can become loose and will start to sag. You won’t gain a youthful look even from treatments to remove your fine wrinkles because of this sagginess of skin. A face lift brings back your face to before when the sagging started. Dr. K. Charles Kim is an expert in Surgical Facelifts in Los Angeles and Non-Surgical Facelifts in nearby areas.

Who needs a Face Lift?

People that have lost significant skin elasticity and/or who are in their 40’s or 50’s with sagging skin.

People that are in their 60’s or 70’s that are experiencing significant aging effects.

People that have severed nasolabial folds, a double chin, prominent deep neck wrinkles, sagging cheeks, a sagging chin or significant facial wrinkles.

Face Lift Methods

1. The surgery is performed while under general anesthesia and usually lasts for around three hours.

2. An incision along the wrinkle line is made at ear’s front and back, starting at the side of the head.

3. After a removal of the loose skin, the current skin is stretched back and upward.

4. During this procedure, SMAS is also firmly pulled which removes sagging facial skin as well as the neck to create a maximum effect.

5. Excess skin is cut along an incision to promote a natural look and is then sutured meticulously.

Caution: Before Undertaking A Surgery

1. Do not forget to consult your doctor regarding every medicine you take. For those who are on medication, especially for blood coagulation and/or thrombosis (such as aspirin, plavix, coumadin, or other pain killers) you must stop taking these medicines two weeks beforehand when you are to undergo surgery.

2. For those who consume health remedies, including red ginseng, nutritional supplements, oriental medicine, vitamins A/E, hormones, antibiotics, chlorella, glucosamine, omega3 and other such items, you must stop consuming them two weeks before you undergo surgery.

4. If  you are menstruating or you are on your menstruation period, you must avoid undertaking surgery.

5. Those undertaking surgery must quit drinking and smoking two weeks before the surgery.

Postoperative Care

1. Hospitalization is unnecessary and you may receive outpatient treatment.

3. To deal with any swelling, use of a cold pack is highly recommended.

5. All stitches are removed on the seventh day after your surgery.

6. You will experience some temporary pain for at least two days as well as some bruising and some swelling. All of the pain will cease within two weeks.
