The time has arrived when you look in the mirror and realize it is time for action. You take good care of yourself mentally, physically and look younger than you really are. However, fine lines, wrinkles and even dark spots start to appear. It is time to seek the advice of a professional, such as Dr. Demetris Stavrou. Dr. Stavrou was trained in plastic and reconstructive surgery in Israel, is an Assistant Professor at St. George’s University of London/University of Nicosia Medical School and also an Honorary Tutor at the University of Cardiff, School of Medicine in the U.K. Dr. Stavrou has mastered advanced surgical techniques during his aesthetic fellowship in Melbourne, Australia.
A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is basically the removal of excess fat from underlying tissues of the skin on your face. At the same time, loose, excessive skin is also removed from your face and neck. This results in tighter, wrinkle-free skin, leaving you looking and feeling ten years younger. Other benefits of a facelift procedure are also mentioned below.
Facelifts can help alleviate migraine headaches! Migraines can seriously hamper the quality of life. They vary in intensity and duration and affect both men and women of all ages. Research has shown that having a facelift can help to stop migraines from occurring. Studies show that the facelift procedure inhibits the peripheral nociceptive neurotransmitter. This is believed to have an impact on the central pain processing systems that causes a migraine to occur.
Dr. Stavrou says that if the patient desires it is possible to remain awake and alert for the whole process but only for a mini facelift procedure, You can also choose to have a “lighter”, sedation anesthesia while the procedure is being performed. Post-op a simple over the counter pain killer can be taken if necessary.
For more extensive facelift procedures, such as a full rhytidectomy, patients require general anesthesia. Dr. Stavrou can then employ new surgical techniques he mastered during his aesthetic fellowship in Melbourne, Australia to provide you the best and most natural results possible.
Types of Facelift
Surgical facelift procedures continue to evolve as new, cutting edge techniques are developed and proven effective. Dr. Stavrou will guide you to the right type of surgery:
- Lower/Mid/Mini facelifts
- Endoscopic facelift – A brow lift or mid-face lift with limited effect on the neck and jowls.
- Thread – A low impact technique to restore younger looks. Local anesthetic used, no hospitalization necessary.
There are a variety of other types of facelifts which allow you to specifically target your problem area and desired results. Dr. Stavrou is here to advise you every step of the way on the best solution to fit your personal needs.
