3-Day Face Lift Plastic Surgery

3-Day Face Lift Plastic Surgery

What it is

As we age, our skin will naturally lose its elasticity and muscle tone, along with a gradual loss of the fatty tissue under the surface of the skin. The effects of gravity and exposure to the sun can also leave your complexion looking much older than you really are. A combination of these factors can result in wrinkles and sagging skin.

Under the natural force of gravity, the skin loses elasticity as the eyebrows are pulled downwards and lose skin is created around the jaws and cheeks. While we cannot stop the force of gravity or the inevitable aging process, Dr. McLean’s Three Day Face Lift is an effective treatment option to restore a youthful appearance, maintaining a natural look that does not appear fake or overdone.


Treatment Areas

Dr. McLean’s Three Day Face Lifts are ideal for patients who can easily pinch and maneuver their facial skin. Lax, hanging skin on the face or neck, or distinctive jowls or neck bands are also treated with the Three Day Face Lift. It will be paramount in helping you achieve a youthful, refreshed appearance within a short amount of time.

The Three Day Face Lift is non-invasive with the use of smaller incisions. It is the most beneficial if you would like to correct moderate to severe deep wrinkles, loose skin along your jawline or neck, and if you have good skin elasticity, as your skill will be stretched in order to lift sagging skin and reduce the appearance of any deep wrinkles.


How to Prepare For This Procedure

In order to ensure the smoothest healing and recovery process, avoid smoking for at least two weeks prior to the Three Day Face Lift. For two weeks leading up to your procedure, avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications, and related products. During your consultation, Dr. McLean will discuss and review your medications and will make recommendations if certain medications will need to be stopped prior to your procedure.


How It Works

A Three Day Face Lift is ideal for patients who are younger, in their 30s to 40s, who do not require dramatic correction or sagging of the neck or jowl skin. It is best for patients who would like to undergo a preventative procedure before sagging skin and wrinkles become more apparent and evident. Those who are in the later stages of facial aging or excess sagging will find the effects of a facelift cosmetic surgery more beneficial.


Results

After the procedure, many of our patients are extremely satisfied and experience increased confidence. With elevated self-esteem, they no longer shy away from experiencing day-to-day activities and enjoy the rejuvenated, refreshed look to their facial complexion.

Dr. McLean uses cutting edge techniques to give you results that look completely natural and enhances your natural appearance. With no evidence of surgery left behind, people will notice your refreshed complexion and your youthful appearance.

This 3 Day Face Lift procedure will tighten loose skin, as sagging skin can age a person significantly while tighter, smooth skin symbolizes youthful vivacity. Additionally, the most telltale sign of aging– wrinkles– will be removed when the facial skin is tightened. The innovative techniques applied by Dr. McLean will provide you with the results of a full lower face lift by removing sagging skin from the neck and jaw, in half the down time required from traditional face lifts.

One of the most common procedures paired with the Three Day Face Lift is eyelid surgery, or Blepharoplasty. While the facelift will address the neck, cheek, and jowl area, eyelid surgery is used to further enhance the effects of the procedure.

Eyelid surgery in conjunction with the Three Day Face Lift is beneficial if you have:

  • Puffiness around the eye area, which ages you and makes you appear older than you are
  • Hooded eyelids that gives your appearance a tired, fatigued look
  • Hooded eyelids that hinder your ability to see
  • Under eye bags, wrinkles, and sagging skin

Upper Blepharoplasty surgery is surgery on the upper eyelid, which will involve the removal of stretched skin that often results in wrinkles or hooding along the eyelashes.  Lower Blepharoplasty is surgery on the lower eyelid, which will reduce the appearance of under-eye puffiness and bags by re-distributing the fat in this area. These surgeries are complementary to the Three Day Face Lift because a larger portion of the facial complexion will be enhanced and rejuvenated, which will give you a more refreshed appearance. A forehead lift can also be used to reduce the appearance of deep lines on the forehead. In order to determine if these procedures are appropriate when paired with the Three Day Face Lift, please discuss with Dr. McLean during your consultation at the Mississauga office.

The effects of a Three Day Face Lift are dependent on many factors. Usually, Three Day Face Lifts last for several years, however results are dependent on the roles that aging and gravity plays.


Aftercare and Recovery

The Three Day Face Lift at McLean Clinic is well suited for patients who lead busy lifestyles and require minimal to no downtime for recovery. This procedure will reduce or completely eliminate bruising, which will allow you to go about your normal day-to-day activities within a short period of time.

Many of our patients do not deal with excessive discomfort after the surgery but if you find that you are experiencing this, you can easily control any pain you experience with over-the-counter pain medication. For 2 to 3 weeks after your surgery, you will need to avoid strenuous activity and keep your head elevated as much as possible. You should be able to return to work as usual within a few days after your procedure.

This procedure results in minimal scarring as the incisions are usually hidden within the natural creases of your face and ears, or covered by your hair. With time, they will heal and their appearance will gradually reduce to almost nothing.


Potential Complications

All cosmetic surgeries involve the risk of potential complications. Though they are rare, they include infection, bleeding, scar irregularities, and swelling. At our prestigious Mississauga cosmetic surgery clinic, Dr. McLean does everything he can to minimize risks associated with this procedure.


Myths and facts

While you may believe that facelifts are only for older patients, facial surgery is very popular among young people. It is helpful for those who wish to maintain a youthful appearance and prevent more aggressive signs of aging, which is why McClean Clinic’s Three Day Face Lifts are such a popular option.
