Taunted as a miracle of modern medical technology, a face lift is invariably the most famous of all plastic surgery procedure. It’s a procedure that can make anyone, and we mean anyone, look radiant, refreshed and younger, it’s an absolute work of wonder.
A facelift procedure takes approximately two to three hours, and is performed under “twilight” anesthesia. The procedure involves making an incision behind the hairline, which extends in natural skin creases down and around the ear and then back into the hair-bearing scalp behind the ear. A tiny incision is also made under the chin for fat removal and muscle tightening of the neck region. Once the incisions are in place, the skin is lifted and liposculpturing techniques are used to remove excess fatty deposits.
After Liposculpturing, the deeper layers of lax tissues are tightened and excess skin is removed. At Cocoona we take extra care to ensure that the skin is made taut, but not over tightened. That’s precisely why our procedure not only corrects creases, lines, folds and restores the contours of your face to give you a more prominent jaw line, cheekbones, and neck, but do it all in a manner that looks natural.
Facelift is usually performed in conjunction with other procedures such as eyelid surgery, cheek augmentation, forehead lift, nose refinement, ear reshaping, or laser skin-resurfacing. Most patients combine one or two smaller procedures to help minimize the overall recovery period.
Recovery is quick and typically pain-free. Most patients are back on their feet within five days of wearing a bandage. While almost all our patients resume normal activities within two weeks of the procedure-with the added advantage of looking and feeling younger, too.
