Surgical Procedure: Incisions usually begin inside 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 so as to make the scars nearly invisible. In general, the surgeon separates the kin from the fat and muscle below. Fat may be trimmed or suctioned from around the neck and chin to improve the contour. The 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. After deep tissues are tightened, the excess skin is pulled up and back, trimmed and sutured into place.
Duration of operation: 3-5 hours
Risks and Conditions: Complications that can occur include hematoma (a collection of blood under the skin), injury to the nerves that control facial muscles (usually temporary), infection, and reactions to the anesthesia. Poor healing of the skin is most likely to affect smokers. Most of the incision is concealed and not noticeable. It is most likely to be heavy behind the ear where there is greater tension.
After Care: Following surgery, a small thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin behind your ear to drain any blood that might collect there. The surgeon may also wrap your head loosely in bandages to minimize bruising and swelling.
Recovery: The recovery takes one to two weeks. Most people are happy with the result and back to work within a week or two.
Result: Facial profile looks more youthful
Anesthesia: General anesthesia (you are asleep)
Pre Operative Care: Inform us about any allergies, any serious medical condition (s), and all medications you are taking (both prescription and non-prescription). Avoid aspirin and aspirin-containing medicines for two weeks prior to surgery.
Post Operative Care: It is important to follow a careful plan on return to strenuous activity, in order to avoid tension on the wound (which could lead to worse scaring)
Note: A person may also need to be performed upper and lower eyelid surgery at the same time.
