- Stop taking any products containing cortisone or aspirin one week before surgery because These drugs increase blood flow and may cause increased bruising and swelling, and some increase the patient’s chances of infection.
- You should stop taking some anti-inflammatory medications and painkillers as they can cause bleeding during surgery
- If the patient will undergo general anesthesia, he or she must fast the day before the surgery for at least eight hours.
Anesthesia is the first step in any surgery, and anesthesia is local only in the case of laser or surgical sutures, but if performed surgically, the choice is a general anesthesia to tighten the muscles as well as tightening layers under the skin.
The second step in laser facelift is to treat sagging skin with a laser device. In the case of surgical sutures, the surgeon begins to tighten layers under the skin using the type of threads suitable for the patient’s condition with simple stitches on both sides of the face behind the hairline, in both cases no surgical incision is required. If surgically performed, the surgeon performs a surgical incision on both sides of the face behind the hairline so that it does not leave visible scars.
If the condition is not severe, a facelift is performed in a mini-procedure and the incision can be only on both sides of the ear and if the neck is tightened, the incision is at the earlobe.
Excess skin and muscles are tightened and stitched and facial sagging is tightened. The process may include implanting some stents or injecting some fat into the face to help restore skin freshness and youth. The incision is closed, bandages are placed on the face and the patient goes out to recovery to start waiting for the results.
