Alberto Arevalo Plastic Surgeon

With all these names is known the most extensive procedure and also with the most “rejuvenating” effect of facial plastic surgery.

This procedure is indicated when the furrows between the upper lip and the cheek (nasolabial fold) or between the lower lip and the chin (mentolabial fold) are accentuated, and in addition, the cheek has descended, causing the jaw line or the normal contour between the face and the neck to disappear, which gives the so-called facial contouring.

The facelift consists of recovering the normal tension of the muscular system associated with facial expression in cheeks and neck, eliminating excess fatty tissue present in this area, as well as excess skin flaccidity. To perform all this, it is necessary to make a cut with a conventional scalpel or laser, in the skin of the ear region and behind it (to properly camouflage the residual scars).

When performed simultaneously with frontoplasty and blepharoplasty, it is called “full facelift” or full facial rejuvenation surgery.

As with any facial surgery, disability does not depend on pain (which is usually moderate to minimal), but on the presence of swelling or bruising. These vary from patient to patient, depending on the type of skin, and can last between 3 days and a week.

The first days after surgery we must apply cold locally (cold gel packs). It greatly reduces swelling, bruising and pain.

Our greatest enemy in facial surgery, during the postoperative period, is sunlight, and more specifically the ultraviolet rays of the sun. They can cause dark spots in those areas where there were hematomas, especially in the area of the eye bags. These dark circles, with their dark tone, can be permanently accentuated.

Normally between the 4th and 6th week we can return to “normal life”, resume gym routines, go to the pool or the beach. In addition, almost at the same time, we can begin to see the final result of the procedure.
