Myth 1. Do the operation once — you will do it for the rest of your life

And yes and no. Firstly, gravity has a constant effect on soft tissues, and also constantly slows down collagen synthesis in the skin. Therefore, it is natural that a facelift, which completely removed the signs of age now, will have to be repeated in a few years, when, due to natural changes, the skin of the face sank again and the oval became fuzzy.

But with a circular lift, these few years stretch for 10-15 — enough to enjoy a "second wind" youth.

Myth 2. Lift — this is cutting off excess skin, after which facial expressions are distorted

The need for  facelift does not because the skin is stretched and acquires extra area. The oval of the face "blurs" due to the fact that under the influence of age-related changes and & nbsp; gravity, soft tissues descend, forming the main volume in the & nbsp; lower third. During the operation, the surgeon restores the position of soft tissues, lifting them and fixing them in natural fixation points. Nothing "superfluous" is not removed, so the facial muscles remain intact.

Myth 3. A facelift can harm your health

Strictly speaking, anything can harm your health, even taking the most "innocent" tablets, if you have an allergy or individual intolerance to any component in its composition. Accordingly, any intervention carries certain risks.

But before a facelift, a comprehensive examination is mandatory, the purpose of which — identify possible contraindications to surgery. In addition, the patient is warned about his responsibility: how the extent to compliance with the requirements for preparation for lifting, its results depend by 50%.

Myth 4. After a facelift, most cosmetic procedures are contraindicated

This applies only to the recovery period, which lasts 1.5-3 months (depending on the initial condition of the skin and the individual rate of tissue regeneration). After this, the procedures for rejuvenation, improving the quality of the skin, for the prevention of age-related changes become not only available to you, but recommended. With a competent approach to the choice of cosmetic procedures, the effect of a facelift becomes more pronounced, and the results are longer.

Myth 5. A facelift does not make the face younger, it just makes the skin smoother

This is true for cases where age-related changes have already gone far enough, but the woman decided to limit herself to an exclusively circular lift. Naturally, an even and clear oval of the face is unable to hide deep nasolabial folds, "bags". under the eyes, overhanging upper eyelids and creases on the forehead or on the bridge of the nose. In such cases, an integrated approach to rejuvenation is important, in which the most pronounced signs of age are eliminated.
