Full Facelift (Rhytidectomy)

Full Face Lifting – Face and Neck Lift in Bangkok

Affordable facelift in Thailand cosmectic surgery

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure to improve signs of aging in the face and neck. It is one of the most performed plastic surgery procedure from an experienced plastic surgeon. For patients interested in both cheek elevation and tightening of the neck and jowl a full facelift may be more appropriate. The standard facelift which is a combination of upper and lower facelifts offers more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. It improves the visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles and smoothing the skin of your face. The full facelift surgery is combined with a neck lift.

Full facelift procedure

On a face lifting operation, the incisions usually start above the hairline at the temples, follow the natural line in front of the ear and curve behind the earlobe into the crease behind the ear and into or along the lower scalp to make the scars nearly invisible. The exact placement of incisions and the sequence of events depend on your facial structure.

In general, the plastic surgeon separates the skin from the fat and muscle below. This will be done in the standard SMAS technique or  MACS (the Minimal Access Cranial Suspension lift) technique, depending on each individual patient. Fat may be trimmed or suctioned from around the neck and chin to improve the contour. The cosmetic surgeon then tightens the underlying muscle and membrane, pulls the skin back and removes the excess. Stitches secure the layers of tissue and close the incisions.

How long will the operation take?

The duration of operation is about 3 to 4 hours.

How long will a facelift last?

In average the face-lift last 7 to 10 years

Preparation before the facelift operation

Inform the surgeon about any drug allergies, any serious medical conditions and all medications you are taking both prescription and non-prescription.

Avoid blood thinners for 2 weeks prior to the operation because they are thinning the blood and increase the bleeding risk during or after the operation.

Refrain from smoking at least 2 weeks before and 4 weeks after surgery or better even longer. Smoking contracts the blood vessels and interferes with healing.

Recovery after the operation

There may is some discomfort afterward, it can be managed with pain medications. Also, you may experience moderate swelling of the eyelids and other areas. A dressing is usually applied immediately after surgery. Typically this dressing is removed and may be replaced with an elastic wrap within a day.  Some numbness of the skin is quite normal, it will disappear in a few weeks or months. However, normal healing is a gradual process with final results not fully realized for at least four weeks. Keeping the head slightly elevated for a few days after the operation to minimize swelling.

After care

It is important to follow a careful plan to a return to strenuous activity in order to avoid tension on the wound.
Some of the stitches will be removed after seven days. The scalp may take longer to heal and the stitches in the hairline could be left in a few days longer. Avoid strenuous activity (walking and mild stretching are fine). Avoid alcohol, steam baths and saunas for several months. Plenty of rest and allows the body to spend its energy on healing. Using make-up is permitted after the sutures have been removed. Exposure to the sun should be limited for a few months following surgery and accompanied by a sunscreen with a high protection factor. The severity and duration of any side effects may vary, especially if another cosmetic procedure was performed at the same time.

Sharon from USA – Knee replacement surgery

I needed a knee replacement which I couldn’t afford in California. I was so lucky to find International Medical Health Solutions who arranged an affordable surgery for me in Thailand. They took care of me from my arrival until my departure, organised the operation in a GSI accredited hospital with a USA certified orthopaedic specialist. On top of that, I saved almost 75%. The service was excellent. Thank you!
