As we age, we start to notice the toll that the progression of time has taken on our facial features. The skin around our necks, jaws and cheeks get loose and sag leaving marks of wrinkles and lines. It is at this time you may feel that you look older than you really are and many people will also tell you that you appear sad, tired or angry.

While aging of the face is inevitable, many people will always desire a younger-looking appearance and a facelift in Chiang Mai may be right for you.

A facelift (rhytidectomy), is a surgical procedure that removes excess facial skin to restore a more naturally youthful facial appearance. The procedure lifts and tightens the underlying muscles of the face with an aim of restoring your facial features to its previous youthful appearance.

Any person with the following conditions should consider a facelift in Chiang Mai:

  • Sagging skin and loose jowls
  • Under eye creases.
  • Deep creases around the nose extending to the sides of the mouth
  • Tone saggy skin in the lower face that creates jowls.
  • Loose skin under the chin and jaw making you have the appearance of double chin.

Why get a facelift in Chiang Mai?

If price is the deciding factors, then you can have a facelift in Chiang Mai for a fraction of what you would pay in your home country. If you book with Medical Departures, you not only pay less, but also get treatment from licensed, experienced and good doctors who offer their services in clean and hygienic facilities or clinics following international guidelines, such as the ISO's.

While cost is one significant factor that has attracted many medical travelers to Thailand, so too is the expertise of the surgeons who offer excellent surgical results. Many people therefore not only come here because of the reduced prices of surgical treatment, they know they will get high-quality medical services and get the results they want. Hospitals are also not just medical facilities, but are instead high-end luxurious accommodations where healthcare can be received in complete comfort.

When you book with Medical Departures, be sure of quality-checked clinicians and facilities. We verify qualifications and professional memberships, as well as check legal and criminal records. Collecting real patients’ testimonials and confirming health safety and hygiene standards are also part of our inspection process.

How long does a facelift surgery take and what is the recovery time?

A facelift surgery is usually individualized to meet the patient’s needs. While different techniques can be used, your surgeon should tailor his or her method to come up with the results you desire.

The procedure can be carried out using a general anesthetic. However, local anesthetic and intravenous sedation can also be used but you will still be advised to spend the night in the hospital.
For outstanding results to be achieved, a facelift procedure can be combined with other operations including eyebrow lift, eyelid reduction, chin augmentation or lip enhancement.

Depending on the technique you choose, either traditional facelift incision, limited incision or neck lift incision, be sure it will give the results you want. An incision style that begins from the hairline at the temples, and continues around the ear and ends in the lower scalp is a traditional method. Here, the surgeons repositions the deeper tissues beneath the skin and sculpts or redistributes fat from the face, jowls and neck. The skin over the uplifted contours is then redraped and excess skin trimmed away.

In limited incision technique, the surgeon makes short incisions at the temples and continues around the earlobe and sometimes within the lower eyelids down to the upper lip.

The last method, a neck lift is where incisions begin around the earlobe, extend behind the ear and end in the lower scalp. This technique corrects sagging jowls, loose neck skin, and fat accumulation under the chin.
After the surgery, many patients want to look presentable as soon as possible. It is therefore important to take your recovery time seriously. Even though the bruising and swelling after a facelift might make you feel uncomfortable, the healing process is surprisingly quick, and you’ll get better after about ten to fourteen days. At this time, you are free to go out in public but you should remember to protect your face from the sun.
