Facelift Surgery In Kolkata
Facelift surgery is a surgical procedure designed to ameliorate the signs of aging in the face and neck which usually involves the appearance of wrinkles. The sagging skin is pulled back into place so as to provide a more youthful appearance while at the same time the wrinkles are obliterated.
Depending on your condition, additional procedures like fat injections might be advocated in areas of fat loss so as to obtain best results following a facelift surgery. Most commonly, an incision which extends from the front of your ear and goes around to the back of the ear is made although mini-facelifts with much smaller incisions can be used in select cases.
This operation is done under general anesthesia and in a few cases under local anesthesia. You might be required to stay for 1-2 days in the hospital following the procedure as the drains are sequentially removed and the wounds heal up. Complications following a facelift surgery include development of hematoma and seroma under the skin flaps, skin sloughing from inadequate blood supply to the skin as also bruises, hypertrophic scarring and the most dreaded facial nerve injury amongst others.Other aesthetic procedures commonly performed include:
- Fat grafting for contour deformities.
- Blepharoplasty for sagging eyelids
- Botox injections for wrinkles
- Injection of fillers as required
- Chemical peeling for facial rejuvenation
- Genioplasty for chin abnormalities.
- Aesthetic orthognatic surgery for jaw deformities.
