Aging of the face is inevitable. Over the years, we are subjected to sun, environmental pollutants and natural loss of elasticity. While less firm skin is also less able to renew itself, fortunately there are safe and innovative ways to help reverse signs of aging.
Atlanta’s Dr. Sinha offers different types of facelift procedures to suit each patient’s needs. A customized facelift grants the most dramatic and long-lasting improvement for most people, and other options, such as mini-facelifts, can improve specific areas. For example, the “s-lift” targets the mid-face with less expense and less invasion, and a “j-lift” addresses the lower face and neck.
During the facelift, Dr. Sinha removes excess skin and sculpts the jaw and neckline, restoring a more youthful position to the skin and underlying tissue. Facelift incisions are hidden in the fold in front of and behind the ear into the hairline. The skin and the deep tissue layer are repositioned to eliminate wrinkles and provide a long-lasting lifted look.
Q & A with Dr. Sinha
What’s the recovery process like?
Patients typically stay overnight and are discharged the next morning. The patient will apply a dressing to the face for a few days, and stitches are typically removed after two weeks.
What types of reactions should I look out for?
You might experience mild bruising or discoloration for the first week or two after surgery. An esthetician from the Atlanta Institute for Facial Aesthetic Surgery can help you apply makeup to cover up any bruising or discoloration. Swelling is also common and should go down on its own within the first few weeks.
What factors do you consider before going ahead with the procedure?
A patient’s skin type, ethnicity, individual healing, bone structure and desired outcome are all taken into account in order to plan the ideal facelift.
