Facelift Surgery

Facelift surgery is the cosmetic procedure to enhance the appearance of the face by repositioning some of the muscle and skin tissue of neck and face that get loosened and sagged due to gravity as the patient grows older. Wrinkles around the eyes and mouth may benefit a little from facelift surgery. For complete face correction, other procedure such as chemical peel, blepharoplasty, or dermabrasion may also be necessary.

Mini Facelift and Full Facelift Surgery

Mini facelift surgery is recommended to people who have just started noticing signs of aging. These could be women and men in their late thirties or early-mid forties. This procedure takes care of loose folds of skin in the jaw, cheeks, and around the neck.

Full facelift surgery is more permanent and it can eliminate wrinkles completely, under the jowls and neck folds as well as the loose pockets of skin in cheeks or below the eyes. This procedure is recommended to women and men in their late 50s and above.  However, the major difference lies in the fact that a mini facelift cannot and will not target the forehead or the areas under and around the eyes.

In the case of mini lift, patients may return to activities within a few days provided there is no bruising or swelling after the sutures are ejected. In case of the full facelift surgery in India, one can resume social activities only 2 weeks after the procedure.  Risk factors of both the procedures are almost the same and these include bleeding, swelling, scarring, clotting and pain at the sutures site. In the case of full facelift surgery, there may be a potential risk to the facial nerve or skin infections.

Procedural Differences Between Mini And Full Facelifts

The patients who have a mild degree of sagging skin and jowling are often good candidates for a mini-facelift.  This is a lesser invasive technique. Deep facial tissues, which are located along the hairline above each ear and in the natural creases adjacent to the ear, are tightened through the shorter incisions. Through these incisions, structural tissues near the cheeks are tightened and lifted to correct jowling and rejuvenate the “tired” appearance. A mini facelift is known as the weekend facelift because it can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation, as an outpatient process.

A full facelift will fully address the moderate to advanced aging around the mid-face and neck. The facelift doctor repositions the deeper tissues under the skin and removes the excess skin to eliminate jowling, smooth creases, and sagging skins below the chin and restore the naturally youthful curve to the face and neck. A full facelift would require general anesthesia and an overnight stay in the hospital. Mini facelifts are generally completed in 40 to 90 minutes depending on the ability of the facelift cosmetic surgeon. The full procedures take hours depending on the extent of aging and the lift required.

Affordable Facelift Surgery Costs In India

The reason why many people prefer to travel to India for such surgeries is India's advanced medical services at lesser prices. A mini facelift surgery India typically costs around INR 1.2-1.5 Lacs. A full facelift surgery cost in India could be around INR 2.3-2.5 lacs depending on the difficulty of the case. These charges include consultation, stay in hospital, meals and nursing charges, etc.

Choosing the Best Facelift Surgeons in India

Facelift surgery is the procedure that requires widespread knowledge in facial anatomy, a very specific cleverness of surgical techniques and an expert’s eye for the aesthetic detail. Patients looking forward to getting facelift surgery should make sure that the cosmetic surgeon has knowledge and experience in performing the facelifts for male and female patients as the anatomy of the male face is unique from a woman and requires a well-informed approach.
