HAVING A FACELIFT AND A NATURAL RESULT
Most of us want our faces to reflect how young we feel on the inside. The desire is to look like ourselves, only better- more youthful and refreshed. Dr. Majmundar is a respected facial plastic surgeon who has developed a Signature, Natural Facelift which is a product of his years of experience. Dr. Majmundar’s Signature Natural facelift is a combination of artistry and medicine. With his advanced surgical approach, and artful skill with injectables, the skin and facial structures are lifted at a natural angle, which eliminates a “pulled” or “stretched” look. It’s you…only better.
IS A NATURAL FACELIFT FOR YOU?
Understanding how our face ages, along with improvements in facelift techniques over the last 10 years, has increased patient satisfaction. Dr. Majmundar’s approach is a hybrid which incorporates the use of other techniques, materials, and treatments in addition to surgery. As with all facial plastic surgery, good health and realistic expectations are prerequisites. Skin type and degree of elasticity, ethnic background, basic bone structure, as well as your personal healing time as well as your goals and expectations are all topics that Dr. Majmundar will discuss with you during your consultation.
There is not any perfect time to have a Natural Facelift. Successful surgery has been performed in women in their early 30’s to their late 80’s. Each person ages differently based on genetics and environmental factors. If you see sagging of your cheeks (jowling) and lines in your neck that are bothersome to you, then it’s a good time to consider a Natural Facelift. The earlier you address these changes, the better your results are likely to be.
Components of the Natural Facelift include facial volumization with state-of-the-art injectables or natural tissues such as collagen or fat, and an advanced surgical approach that lifts the skin and facial structures at a natural angle. Natural facelifts are usually combined with tightening of the facial and neck muscles, as well as neck liposuction, to remove excess fat under the chin (“double chin”). In order to achieve a balanced and proportional result, eyelid and browlift surgery is recommended at the same time so that the entire face appears rejuvenated and is able to age “in sync.”
ABOUT THE SURGERY
Dr. Majmundar begins the incision in the area of the temple hair just above the ear, and then proceeds in front of the ear, around the earlobe, partially circling the ear and back into the hairline. We take the extra step and carry the incision behind the tragus (the flap of skin that hides the opening to your ear canal) before circling the earlobe to help hide the incisions even more. In all cases, the incision is placed where it would fall in a natural skin crease for camouflage. The incisions are then closed with fine sutures to reduce the chance of any visible scarring. For many patients, rejuvenating the upper face with the lower face is recommended to balance the youthful contours of the lower face and to allow the face to age “in sync”. As a result, a natural appearance is maintained over time.
Most patients experience very little pain after surgery, however, Dr. Majmundar will prescribe pain medication to use as needed. Some degree of swelling and bruising is unavoidable, but this can be minimized with medication to help shorten the recovery time. Recovery usually takes 7 to 10 days, although some patients go back to work in seven days with makeup. Makeup and sunscreen can be worn after seven days. It is important to note that maintaining a Natural facelift is a must. This is accomplished with annual skin care treatments and the replenishment of facial volume (with injectables) as it diminishes. Happily, once the clock is turned back with a Natural Facelift, you never lose the benefits that are gained.
