Facelift Surgery In Chicago – Do You Know the Process?
With time, our skin starts to loosen and signs of ageing i.e. wrinkles begin to form. One of the first few places on our body that starts to age is our neck and face. Even people who aren’t old and have recently had a massive weight loss can have wrinkles appearing on their face. Facelift surgery is a remedy to this problem.
What is a Facelift Surgery?
A facelift surgery is also known as a rhytidectomy. Simply put, it is a surgical procedure that Dr. John A Kotis performs that improves the look of your face and neck by decreasing the number of wrinkles present. The surgery is designed to affect the lower two thirds of the face. Dr. John A. Kotis simply tightens the underlying slack muscles and the skin to enhance the way your jowl, neck and cheek appear to the onlooker. Typically, people who are over 40 tend to go for a facelift surgery.
However, it is important with any facial surgery that people come in having realistic expectations. Yes, a face lift helps you restore your original youthful appearance; but it is unable to stop the ageing process. Also, smoking can have adverse affects on the effectiveness of the surgery.
Types and Procedures of Face Lift Surgery
There are three types of face lift surgeries. The three types as well as their procedures are outlined below.
· The Short Scar Face Lift
This type of facelift is also referred to as a mini facelift. The doctor makes smaller incisions on the face and repositions the muscles, soft tissues and skin on the face which has been affected by ageing, loss of elasticity, collagen fibers and gravity. Typically, this process uses the tragus and temple incision but will fall short of the earlobe. This means that the scar of the surgery is camouflaged by the hairline.
