Facial rejuvenation surgery or facelift is a procedure that rejuvenates and gives face muscles and skin a more natural appearance. It improves the depth of wrinkles as well as flaccid skin on the face, chin, and neck.
Facial rejuvenation surgery or facelift, may be accompany by other surgical procedures such as Blepharoplasty, Brow lift, and a neck lift.
As a plastic surgeon, even though face rejuvenation or a face and neck lift may be done I will never use the same surgical plan. Age, facial structure, and a patient’s unique characteristics are analyzed to obtain an appearance as if you had returned from a vacation, more than from plastic surgery.
Am I a candidate for Facelift?
This surgery is indicated for healthy men and women that are not comfortable with the signs of facial aging and who want to improve their face and neck appearance. This procedure may be done on persons on any age, though it is recommended for those that are older than 40.
What is the difference between long and short scar?
Facial rejuvenation surgery has several names such as rhytidectomy or face and neck lift; the difference lies on the scar: a long or short scar. Dr. Lina Triana does both types of surgery.
Short scar: Incision in the anterior part of the ear. It is recommended for persons with light to moderate facial aging, who do not have a heavy or flaccid neck.
Long scar: Incision in the anterior and posterior part of the ear and in the scalp. It is recommended for persons whose aging can not be corrected with a short scar.To determine the best surgical option for the patient, Dr. LinaTriana analyzes the patient`s age, facial structure and unique characteristics to obtain a fresh and harmonious facial appearance.
How is a Facelift done?
Facial rejuvenation surgery or rhytidectomy can be done with local anesthesia and sedation or general anesthesia. The type of anesthesia is chosen by the anesthesiologist and the patient.
