Austin, TX, 11 November 2011: If aging and loose skin has hurt your self-confidence, you should consider consulting Dr. Louis W. Apostolakis, a renowned facelift surgeon and plastic surgery specialist in Austin. Also known as rhytidectomy surgery, facelifts are performed by removing excess skin, sags and bulges from around the face. This surgery is the most effective way to get a lift and see a noticeable decrease of sagging skin of the face and neck.

Discussing the surgery, Dr. Apostolakis commented, “Facelifts and necklifts are not only performed on people who show significant signs of aging. The new trend is toward younger people getting facelifts, and for good reason. Facelifts on younger people can be thought of as a maintenance procedure rather than a restoration procedure. Therefore, people are needing to get less work done at one time, helping make surgery results look even more natural.”

Usually, patients are concerned about their neck, jaw line, and cheek regions. For some patients, a simple neck lift surgery suffices. For more results, a neck, cheek or temple lift may be needed. A forehead lift or eyelid lift may also be recommended to correct sagging upper eyelids. Surgery is generally done under IV sedation, which helps you to avoid side effects such as nausea and sore throat. Most people can undergo a facelift, as long as they do not have any major medical problems.

Post surgery, patients will have cotton dressings. The dressings are taken off the morning after surgery. Thereafter, only an elastic strap under the chin is needed. Pain typically is minimal. Patients can resume light deskwork a couple of days after the surgery. Gradually over three weeks patients resume their full aerobic and weight lifting activities.
