Full Face Lift
For women and men both aging can be a difficult process to go through. Lots of people have all sorts of creams and other rituals to make their face look like it did in their younger days. However, sometimes this is not enough so they, instead, decide to have a full facelift.
A full facelift is suggested for people who are over the age of 40 and are displaying signs of aging. The procedure removes extra skin and then the underlying muscles are tightened. This surgery will help in restoring the skin of the face as well as the neck.

Procedure and Techniques
The procedure takes 3-4 hours on average and is performed under general anesthesia. The incision is made above the hairline, in the temple area and is brought in to the front of the ear and then loops behind the ear lobe and along the lower scalp. The face and the neck will be tightened together and the placement of the cuts will be determined by the examination of the structure of the face. During the full facelift the patient can also choose to have chin liposuction so the result of the procedure can be enhanced.
Once the surgery is completed, you’ll have to use a cold compress for two days, and avoid lying in such a way that the cheeks come into contact with either the pillows or the bed for a month to prevent formation of hematomas. There may be some numbness that may occur for 3-6 months and you should keep from doing any activities that are strenuous for 4-6 weeks after the surgery.
This will ensure that your body will have more than enough time to adjust to the full facelift as it continues to heal. The scars are normally hidden by the hairline or either in the natural creases in the ears and face. The scars will fade and barely be visible in time.
You will be required to stay in Thailand for your full facelift for at least 10-14 days, however, you can stay longer and enjoy a vacation while you’re here. Thailand is a beautiful country and has lot to offer so while you’re here giving yourself your lift why not give yourself the experience of a new culture and go home refreshed.
