Thinking of correcting some of the disgraces of aging with cheekbone traction?
The aim of this facelift is to correct the sagging of the tissues of the face and neck (cheeks, jowls, facial contour 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 becomes stretched and refined, the oval of the face loses its definition. The cervico-facial lifting acts on the skin which it puts back in tension, as well as on the underlying muscular 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 gestures:
- eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)
- A brow lift
- Treatment of wrinkles with a peel or laser
The cervico-facial lifting allows to obtain often very clear results and the effect of rejuvenation as well on the physical level as psychological is obvious.
The daily approach
The junction between the contour of the eye and the cheekbone is therefore to be kept under surveillance because with age, the volumes decrease, the skin loses its material, the bone formation decreases and the fatty cushion melts. Less "plumpy" is less good at taking in the light and less illuminating the eye.
Every morning, do facial yoga after cleaning it. By toning the skin muscles and improving circulation, it revives the complexion and blurs the lines of bitterness. Inhale well and exhale 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 complexion within 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 practiced 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 old, sometimes after weight loss for example, or later depending on the quality of the tissues and lifestyle.
The first consultation is very important because it allows you to clearly identify your motivations and to 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 surgical procedure.
This consultation will end with the taking of photographs which will serve as a basis during the intervention and for the evaluation of the post-operative results.
It is also possible to perform this operation under local anesthesia depending on the importance of the surgical procedure and the degree of anxiety of the patient. The mode of anesthesia, like the surgical procedure, are therefore adapted to each particular case.
The skin incision is discreet.
It begins in the temporal region within the hairline
It extends inside the ear on the natural line
It goes around the earlobe to extend behind.
