Are you considering correcting some of the disgrace associated with aging by pulling the cheekbones?
The purpose of this lifting is to correct the sagging of the tissues of the face and neck (cheeks, jowls, contour of the face and neck) and to reduce wrinkles. This sagging of the tissues is due to the effect of age as well as to various aggressions (prolonged exposure to the sun, tobacco, daily stress, and others).
The skin is stretched and refined, the oval of the face loses its definition. The cervico-facial lifting acts on the skin that it puts back in tension, as well as on the underlying muscle level which is also sagging.
This double action makes it possible to obtain a more satisfactory and more lasting result.
The cervico-facial lifting can be associated with other possible procedures:
- Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty
- A brow lift
- Treatment of wrinkles with a peel or laser
The cervico-facial lifting allows often very clear results to be obtained and the rejuvenating effect both physically and psychologically is evident.
The daily approach
The junction between the eye contour and the cheekbone should therefore be kept under surveillance because with age, the volumes decrease, the skin loses its material, the bone setting diminishes and the fatty cushion melts. Less "plumpy" means taking the light less well and illuminating the eyes less.
Every morning, do facial yoga after cleansing it. By toning the skin muscles and improving circulation, it breathes new life into the complexion and blurs the folds of bitterness. Inhale well and exhale with closed lips, emptying the air from one cheek to the other.
In the evening, massage your face from the center outwards to drain and display a less puffy and therefore more radiant mine in a week.
The surgical approach
The best indications for cervico-facial lifting are:
- sagging skin, especially the oval of the face
- a wrinkled neck with excess skin and fat,
The cervico-facial lift is performed in women as well as in men and it is possible when the signs of aging appear.
The average age of patients is 45 to 50 years, sometimes after weight loss for example, or later depending on the qualities of the tissues and the way of life.
The first consultation is very important because it allows you to clearly identify your motivations and specify the technical possibilities.
The analysis of your face will make it possible to better define the quality of the tissues (texture and elasticity of the skin, the importance of wrinkles, the quality of the deep tissues and the structure of the bones of your face), which will guide the operative gesture.
This consultation will end with the taking of photographs which will serve as a basis during the intervention and for the evaluation of the postoperative results.
It is also possible to perform this intervention under local anesthesia depending on the importance of the operative gesture and depending on the patient's degree of anxiety. The mode of anesthesia, like the operative procedure, are therefore adapted to each particular case.
The skin incision is inconspicuous.
It starts in the temporal region inside the hairline
It extends inside the ear on the natural line
It goes around the earlobe to extend backwards.
