Everyone wants to look beautiful, fresh, and young. But aging is inevitable, and so are the signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, loose skin, and pigmentation. There are many quick fixes available like anti-aging creams and lotions but they rarely work. 

At Arra Aesthetics, you can reverse the signs of aging with facelift surgery or rhytidectomy. 

What Is Facelift Surgery?

Facelift surgery (also known as rhytidectomy) is a cosmetic surgical procedure that lifts the droopy and saggy features of the face and gives it a taut and firmer appearance. A facelift not only reduces fine lines and wrinkles but also rejuvenates the face by restoring lost elasticity. 

What Are The Different Types Of Facelift Surgery?

At Arra Aesthetics, we perform three different types of facelift surgeries:

What Are The Benefits Of Facelift Surgery?

Many people opt to undergo facelift surgery because of the many benefits the procedure gives. Some of these benefits are:

What To Expect At The Consultation?

During the consultation for facelift surgery, Dr. Vasant Gholave will carefully examine the patient’s face and discuss the patient’s wishes with them. Based on his examination and the patient’s desires, Dr. Gholave will advise the patient on the most suitable type of facelift technique. He will describe the detailed procedure to the patient, including the expected results and possible risks so that the patient can make an informed decision. 

Dr. Vasant Gholave will enquire about the patient’s full medical history to ensure that no complications arise during the facelift procedure. He will plan the treatment carefully to ensure the patient’s safety and satisfaction.

How Is A Facelift Surgery Performed At Arra Aesthetics?

Before the facelift surgery, the surgeon asks the patient to thoroughly clean their face and scalp with germicide soap to ensure that the face is free of any germs that may cause infection. 

The first step during a facelift surgery is administering general anesthesia or local anesthesia so that the patient does not feel any discomfort. Then the surgeon makes incisions on the face. The position and size of the incisions depend on the type of facelift. 

In the case of keyhole facelift surgery or endoscopic facelift surgery, the surgeon then inserts an endoscope (a small camera) through the incision. The surgeon views the image from the camera on a screen. The enhanced view allows the surgeon to perform the procedure more effectively. 

After the incisions are made (and if needed, the endoscope is inserted) the surgeon separates the overlying layer of skin from the tissues and muscles underneath it. Then the surgeon tightens the skin and redrapes it. If needed, the surgeon also tightens the facial tissues or inserts soft tissue fillers before redraping the skin. 

The surgeon removes any excess skin and then sutures the skin back into place. If needed, the surgeon may place drains. 

Facelift surgery can also be performed alongside a neck lift if it is required by the patient.

How Is The Recovery After Facelift Surgery?

The patient will be able to return home the same day as the surgery. Some pain and swelling are common after the surgery, but the surgeon will prescribe medications to alleviate the discomfort. The results of the surgery will be visible after the swelling fades away. 

Usually, after facelift surgery, the patient can resume their daily activities after 2 weeks of downtime, though it is recommended to avoid strenuous activities for at least 6 weeks after the surgery. Patients are also recommended to diligently attend the follow-up appointments with the surgeon so that the surgeon can monitor the healing and ensure that there are no complications.

What Are The Risks Of Facelift Surgery?

Like all surgical procedures, facelift surgery carries some risks. They are:

These risks rarely occur and at Arra Aesthetics, our team does its best to ensure the safety and satisfaction of the patient.

We were based in UK when I had severe burn on my right hand. I was undergoing burn dressing daily almost for 3 months there. But some portion of the wound didn't heal.In between treatment, we relocated to India and the wound was still not fully healed.While searching options on web for my wound healing, I came across the Arra Aesthetics and I came to know about the best laser treatment for wound healing. I consulted Dr. Vasant Gholave Plastic Surgeon in Pune for my non healing wound and post burn keloid of right hand at Arra Aesthetics. He explained the latest revolutionary Recosma LASER technology for wound and keloid. Although I was tense and worried about my wound, I decided to give it a try for this new laser therapy. To my surprise the wound healed completely by the end of 3rd session which was fron 10 days from my consulting session. The keloid scars have become soft and thin, also reducing in thickness after recosma laser.I am very happy and satisfied with my treatment.Dr. Vasant Gholave is highly experienced plastic surgeon. He is gentle and friendly. The clinic has advanced laser machines and the facility provided is very standard and cleanliness is maintained very much.I had wonderful experiences in Arra clinic . I highly recommend the clinic to people.

I was suffering from excess fat on belly. I consulted Dr. Vasant Gholave, Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeon at Arra Aesthetic, Pune for fat reduction surgery. Initially, I was not sure about what exactly is required, Tummy Tuck or Liposuction. And if at all Liposuction, which technology shall I choose.He explained me everything in details, about options of non-surgical fat reduction VS Liposuction Surgery. He further explained me about different Liposuction Technologies, like Conventional Suction Assisted Liposuction, Vaser Liposuction, Laser Liposuction, Water Jet Liposuction, Power Assisted Liposuction.I chose Laser Lipolysis and underwent the procedure 2 months back. I got flatter tummy and good shape. I am happy with best liposuction result.Thank you sir and I recommend him as he is best Cosmetic Surgeon in Pune.
