Steps to take before Rhytidectomy
Reconstructive surgeries can be draining and perplexing, but our team of skilled doctors will ensure you are given the best care and assessment during and post-treatment. At the consultation stage, discuss with your doctor the area you want to enhance. Our doctors will also help you develop a realistic understanding of how your face will look post-surgery.
What happens during the procedure?
The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. Small incisions are made on the temples, ears, and chin. Tiny instruments are inserted through the incisions to lift the muscles of the face, to remove the excess fat, and to re-drape tissues. Incisions are then closed with small stitches.
After the procedure
After the surgery, you will be advised to keep your head elevated and still. Your doctor will remove the stitches and dressings in 5-10 days. Certain medications will be prescribed to relieve the pain. A cold compress can be used to relieve swelling and bruises. You can return back to your normal schedule in 2-3 weeks.
