Mini Facelift (Thread or Feather Facelift)

Mini Facelift


Certainly! A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that is designed to reduce the signs of aging on the face and neck. Here is a general overview of the process:

  • Anesthesia: The first step in facelift surgery is administering anesthesia. Usually, general anesthesia is used, but sometimes local anesthesia with sedation may also be used.
  • Incision: After the anesthesia has taken effect, the surgeon will make incisions around the hairline, starting at the temples and continuing down in front of the ears, around the earlobes, and then behind the ears. The incisions are usually made in such a way that they will be well-hidden by the hair or natural creases in the skin.
  • Skin and muscle tightening: Once the incisions have been made, the surgeon will separate the skin from the underlying tissues and muscles. The underlying muscles will be tightened, and excess fat will be removed.
  • Skin repositioning: The skin is then pulled back and repositioned over the newly tightened muscles and tissues. Any excess skin is trimmed away.
  • Incision closure: The incisions are then closed using stitches or surgical clips.
  • Recovery: After the surgery, the patient will be taken to a recovery area where they will be monitored until the effects of the anesthesia wear off. It is common to experience swelling, bruising, and some discomfort after the surgery, but these symptoms can be managed with pain medication and ice packs.
  • Follow-up: The patient will typically need to return to the surgeon’s office for follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing and to remove any stitches or clips.

Overall, the procedure can take several hours depending on the work’s extent. The results of a facelift can last for many years, but it is important to remember that the procedure does not stop the natural aging process, and additional touch-up procedures may be needed in the future.
