The months leading to the wedding seasons are wonderful. There is a lot of planning to be done, food to be tasted, trousseau to be designed and last, but most important of all, plastic surgeon to visit. Yes, you heard that right. At Clinic Dermatech, we have noticed a spike in visits to our dermatologists and plastic surgeons before the wedding season. The maximum number of requests to undergo popular surgical procedures like facelift surgery are surprisingly not from the bride-to-be, but the mother-in-law-to-be!
Facelifts are in Demand
According to Dr Rajat Gupta, leading plastic surgeon at Clinic Dermatech, many mature women are increasingly opting for a Facelift. The reason for this is that the ladies want to look their best for the pictures and the selfies that are taken during the wedding. We have noticed, the client is usually the mother-of-the-bride or the mother-of-the-groom “After all, it is a once-in-a-lifetime event and every woman wants to be complimented that she doesn’t look old enough to be a mother-in-law. It’s a great feeling to hear that they could pass off as the bride’s elder sister even!” said Dr. Gupta. The ladies sure aren’t cutting any corners in putting their best face forward during the wedding season.
Facelift surgery vs Injectables
While injectables which have no-downtime are uncomplicated, swift and comparatively reasonable on the pocket, there is an increased demand for facelift surgery from clients who have experienced many rounds of injectables and are looking for more dramatic results, without adding to their filler fatigue. Often it also includes women who have had negative experiences like unnatural or distorted results, even allergies and infections from improper treatments in the past.
Also, the results of injectables like dermal fillers and botox are short to medium term and last for a few months. The injectables have to be repeated in a routine and timely manner to preserve the results consistently. By contrast, the results of facelifts are long-lasting. Sagging skin is lifted, hollows are filled and wrinkles are reduced, giving a much younger appearance to the face. In the neck, the multiple creases or wattles are smoothed out, which usually are the first giveaways of the age of a person. A Facelift is often described as dramatic and life-changing by many.
What Happens in a Facelift or Rhytidectomy Surgery
Rhytidectomy or Facelifts surgery , as they are known, are performed in a surgical operating room as an out-patient procedure and typically takes three to four hours to be conducted. The plastic surgeon makes an incision behind the folds behind the ear (which hides the stitches), lifts the inner layer of the facial and neck muscles and thus gives a more sculpted jawline.
The amount of time needed to recover from the surgical procedure is about one to two weeks. After the surgery, there is swelling and some bruising. The dressing is removed after 2 days and sutures are removed after a week. The results can very much be described as impressive and stimulating.
Which is the best clinic for Facelift?
The importance of the skill set of the surgeon cannot be stressed more. It is important not to be rash about the decision to have a facelift or rush the recovery. There should not be any compromise on either.
