Face lifts are one of the most popular and well-known forms of cosmetic surgery and have been around for many years. During this time, the surgical practice of performing face lifts has progressed in leaps and bounds. These days, with interest in cosmetic surgery at an all time high, face lifts are almost becoming a ��norm' is certain circles. If you are considering investing in a face lift, there are a few things you should know before you take the cosmetic surgery plunge.

What are Face Lifts?

We all know the name, but how many of us honestly know what a face lift procedure actually involves?

There are actually three different types of surgical face lifts. The first and most common of these is the ��standard' face lift. This involves a surgeon making an incision around the hairline of the patient, then lifting the skin away from the muscles of the face. Any excess fat is then removed from this area before the skin is pulled tight against the face. Once the skin is tight enough, any excess skin above the original incision is trimmed and the rest of the skin is reattached to the facial muscles. This procedure can also be done at the jaw line to tighten the skin in that area.

The second type of face lift is a keyhole face lift. This involves the surgeon making much smaller cuts in the face, then using a camera to guide him under the patient's skin to make the necessary changes to fat levels.

Finally, a Minimal Access Cranial Suspension face lift (or MACS face lift) is a procedure whereby the surgeon makes shorter incisions than normal in both the temples and in front of the ears. The skin in these areas is then pulled backwards to increase skin tension, and permanent stitches are sewn in to secure the skin in place.

The latter two of these methods are often preferred because they have a lower chance of leaving scars and have a much quicker recovery time.

Who Can Benefit From Face Lifts?

As a rule, it is older people that have face lift surgery. This is because as we age our skin loses its elasticity and can start to sag. It is exactly this that a face lift is designed to combat. It is, of course, possible for anyone to have a face lift; however a surgeon will usually refuse to perform the operation if it is not necessary. After all, if the skin is already tight and firm there's no use tightening it any further!

What are the Benefits of Having a Face Lift?

The primary benefit of having face lift surgery is the improvement in personal appearance for the patient. Following a healing period, patients generally find that their skin is firmer, smoother and shows less signs of aging that prior to the face lift operation. An added benefit of face lift surgery is the self confidence boost that comes from this improvement in appearance. When a person likes the way they look, they generally come across as happier, healthier and more confident.

What are the Risks of Face Lift Surgery?

In much the same way as any other cosmetic surgery, there are a number of risks attached to a face lift operation. General side effects from the surgery can include facial swelling, the possibility of scarring, and a noticeable difference in hair line. These do not always occur and, particularly in the case of swelling and bruising, often disappear following the healing period.

There are also complications that may arise during the surgery itself. These can include damage to facial nerves (resulting in a ��numbness' in the face which could possibly be permanent) and bleeding under the skin (known as hematoma). Whilst these occurrences are rare, they should still be taken into consideration when deciding whether or not to have a face lift operation.

So, Is a Face Lift For Me?

Well, this one is really a matter of personal choice combined with a balanced view of the benefits and risks. If you truly are fed up with the way your skin looks and feel that your life would genuinely improve following a face lift, then it may be a good course of action for you. On the other hand, if you find yourself in two minds about it due to the risks compared to the perceived benefits, you may want to reconsider your choice.

Always be sure to discuss your decision with a qualified health professional and try not to make any hasty decisions.
