Facelift Thailand

Retard signs of time with a Facelift. Thailand surgeons are highly skilled.

A Rhytidectomy tightens sagging skin in the face and neck, flattens creases along the nose and below the lower eyelids, evens creases at the mouth and may even eliminate the appearance of a double chin.  A Rhytidectomy is more commonly referred to as a facelift.  Thailand surgeons are skilled in all the latest techniques to retard the signs of aging and make the individual appear young again.

Ideal Candidate
First and foremost, the candidate for Rhytidectomy must be healthy because a healthy person is more capable of fighting off infections.  The candidate’s skin must be healthy and should not be overexposed to tanning.  Additionally, the candidate should be a non-smoker because smoking slows the healing process.  While some individuals in their twenties may choose a facelift to remove fat deposits from his or her face, the ideal candidate is typically past the age of 40.  This candidate is typically showing signs of aging such as wrinkles and sagging skin.   

Initial Consultation
During the initial consultation for a facelift, Thailand surgeons will meet with the candidate to discuss the candidate’s expectations and desires.  The surgeon will want to ensure that the candidate has realistic expectations and is emotionally sound.  The surgeon will evaluate the candidate’s skin, medical history, and tobacco usage.  The physician’s goal at this point is to determine if a face lift is a good choice for the individual.
Once the decision is made to get the face lift, Thailand surgeons will discuss the Rhytidectomy in detail with the individual. The surgeon will measure the individual’s pace and will take pictures of the individual.  Realistic outcomes and the type of anesthesia that will be used will be discussed with the individual.  Additionally, potential risks and complications will be discussed.

The Procedure
Prior to commencing a facelift, Thailand surgeons typically have an anesthetist administer a general anesthesia.  When a general anesthesia is administered, the patient sleeps through the entire process and feels absolutely no pain.  Sometimes the surgeon, with the patient’s agreement, may opt for a local anesthesia.  If a local anesthesia is administered, it is usually administered in combination with an intravenous sedation.  The sedation helps the individual to relax. 

To perform a facelift, Thailand surgeons make an incision that circles the face at the hairline, comes around the front of the ear, circles behind the ear and ends in the hairline.  Sagging tissue and muscle is tightened and the skin is repositioned over the newly tightened muscles and skin.  The extra skin is removed, and then adhesives or stitches are used to close the incision.

Recovery Period
A facelifts is an extremely long surgery and can last as much as three hours.  Even though the surgery is long, there is relatively very little pain after the surgery.  After the actual facelift, Thailand surgeons will loosely wrap the augmented area with bandages to minimize selling.  Swelling should resolve after a few days but bruising may remain for about two weeks.  The tightness that the patient feels after the surgery should resolve in a little over a few weeks. 

Some of the potential risks include infections, and a collection of blood under the skin—both scenarios are common in all surgeries. When performing facelifts, Thailand surgeons work carefully to minimize or eliminate risks.
