Facelift Treatment & Diagnostics in Nehru Enclave, Delhi


Facelift or rhytidectomy is a cosmetic surgery that is performed to reduce sagging and remove wrinkles from the skin to give it a youthful appearance. It is done using several surgical techniques and is generally long-lasting. You can visit a plastic surgery hospital in Delhi to undergo this treatment.  

What is a facelift?

A facelift is a surgical procedure performed to give your face a younger or more youthful appearance. The procedure helps reduce sagging on your face and restores the shape of your face. During this procedure, a flap of skin on each side is pulled back and the tissues inside are changed to restore the contours of the face. Excess skin beneath the face may also be removed during the surgery.

What are the different types of facelift?

The various types of facelifts are as follows:

  • SMAS Lift:
    In the SMAS or superficial musculoaponeurotic surgery, the surgeon folds the layers of the skin over each other to give your jaws and cheeks a more definite shape.
  • Mini facelift:
    A mini facelift is a minimally invasive technique and mostly preferred by people with premature ageing. However, it is a temporary solution and does not lead to lasting results.
  • Skin-only facelift
    In this procedure, only the skin beneath the face is lifted while other muscles and tissues remain intact.
  • Composite and deep-plane facelifts
    In this case, the muscles and tissues present deep beneath the face are repositioned to give the face a desirable appearance.

Who can undergo this procedure?

People who show the following changes in their facial skin may opt for a facelift:

  • Sagging of cheeks
  • Dropping of eyelids
  • Excess skin over your jawline
  • Excess sagging skin on your neck
  • Folding of the skin on the side of your nose to the corner of your mouth

You can visit a plastic surgery hospital in Delhi to undergo this treatment.

Why is this procedure conducted?

This procedure is generally conducted to restore the youthfulness of the skin that may decline due to the following reasons:

Ageing: As you age, the skin around your face starts losing its elasticity. This can cause the face and the neck to sag and lose their tone.

Fatigued or worn-out appearance: Another common side effect of aging is the look of constant tiredness that appears on the face. No matter how much you sleep or rest, the tired look does not go away. To get rid of tired skin, a facelift may be beneficial.

Prominent wrinkles and fine lines : Another common reason for people to opt for a facelift is the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These wrinkles become prominent as you age and may get reduced only after a facelift. 

When do you need to see a doctor?

If you show any of the changes mentioned above in your face, you may consult a plastic surgeon for a facelift.  For consultation,
