About the Procedure

Facelift surgery generally takes between two and four hours, though it may take longer when combined with other procedures. More extensive procedures may require two separate sessions. The surgery is performed in above mentioned clinic, and is most typically done on an outpatient basis while the patient is under some combination of local anesthesia, mild sedative, and/or mild intravenous anesthesia.

The surgeon will begin by making the incisions. While the exact placement of incisions may vary, they are typically hidden behind the hairline or within the scalp, inside of the ear, and/or behind the ear, thus allowing for minimal visible scarring. The incision line typically begins in the area of the temples about the hairline and just above the ear, extending downward in a natural line either in front of the ear or just inside of the cartilage at the front of ear, then continuing around and behind the earlobe and ending at the lower scalp. If the neck needs additional work, small incisions may also be made beneath the chin.

Once the incision is made, the skin is raised outward and separated from the fat and muscle below. Fat may be trimmed from or suctioned out of the areas around the neck and chin, while underlying muscle and connective tissue may be tightened or repositioned. The surgeon will then pull the skin back, lifting it and bringing it tighter, then trim any excess skin before closing the incisions. Stitches will secure the layers of tissue and hold the incisions closed. Metal clips may be used on the scalp, reducing the need to shave any hair from the incision sites. For men, incisions are typically placed in such a way as to accommodate the natural beard lines.

Following surgery, a dressing is typically applied to protect the entire area where the incisions have been made. This may include wrapping the head loosely in bandages, which helps to minimize bruising and swelling. A small tube may be temporarily placed underneath the skin behind the ear in order to drain any blood that can collect there. Patient is discharge 4-6 hours after surgery. Patient needs to be in Pune for 4 days. After 48 hours dressing is removed & if necessary reapplied.

As people age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, and the stresses of daily life can be seen in their faces. Deep creases form between the nose and mouth (nasolabial fold). The jawline grows slack and jowls emerge. Folds and fat deposits appear around the neck. A facelift (rhytidectomy) is the name for a group of operations that address these issues. Surgery cannot stop the aging process. What it can do is "set back the clock," improving the most visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping the skin of your face and neck

The ideal candidates for facelifts are men and women who have some excess and sagging skin on their face and neck. Sun exposure, stress, and even gravity contribute to the aging process in the face. Typically, people are between the ages of forty and sixty, but facelifts can be performed on patients much older with very successful results.

Facelifts are very individualized procedures. In your initial consultation Dr. Chaudhari will evaluate your face, including the skin and underlying bones, and discuss your goals for the surgery with the help of computer imaging. Your health conditions could cause problems during or after surgery such as uncontrolled high blood pressure, blood clotting problems, or the tendency to form excessive scars. I need to know your medical history, other health conditions ,and if you use any form of nicotine or tobacco products. Bring a list of any medicines you take, especially aspirin or other drugs that affect clotting.

During this consultation we will discuss the various types of anesthesia for facelift surgery. The type of anesthesia used will depend on the problem being treated and other factors. Do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have, especially those regarding your expectations and concerns about the results.

There are several variations on the traditional facelift surgery. In fact, of all cosmetic procedures, facelift surgery has some of the most options in terms of available techniques.

The traditional facelift is designed to lift sagging skin and sometimes its deeper structures. Incisions are typically placed along or behind the hairline, then excess skin is excised and the skin of the face is brought tighter, lifted, then sutured. This procedure typically will not correct problems around the eyelids, at the corners of the mouth (except sometimes when undergoing a mid-face lift), or the creases at the lips. Variations on the traditional facelift may include the following: the S-Lift, a smaller facelift surgery mainly involving the lower third of the face; the SMAS Lift, which involves the Superficial (or Sub-) Muscular Aponeurotic System; The Platysma or Neck Lift, involving the Platysma muscles and often performed in conjunction with the SMAS lift; The Mini-Lift; The SOOF or Suborbicularis Oculi Fat Lift; The Temporal Lift, or lateral brow lift; The Subperiosteal Facelift, mainly involving the sub-orbital and mid-face areas; and the Deep Plane Lift. For more information ask your surgeon; he or she will best be able to determine the appropriate facelift technique for you.

  • S-Lift This procedure was invented in the late 1960's, though it has since been perfected. Incisions are typically placed directly in front of the ear, then layers are moved and pulled laterally. This procedure targets the lower third of the face, including the jawline, the jowls, and the neck, while the upper areas and eye wrinkles are not affected.
  • SMAS, Superficial (or Sub-) Muscular Aponeurotic System, Lift The SMAS is responsible for your facial movements, such as smiling. This technique involves lifting the area of the SMAS up and out, or diagonally. The SMAS lift can be performed in conjunction with the platysma lift.
  • Platysma, or Neck, Lift Performed in conjunction with the SMAS lift, some consider this to be the best facelift procedure, though it tends to be more expensive and have a longer operating time. For this procedure, the platysma muscles are tightened and then sutured, while hanging skin and excess fat is removed, resulting in a more youthful-looking neck.
  • Mini-Lift The mini-lift may help with nasolabial folds (lines running from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth). This procedure is a lateral lift only with incisions directly in front of the ear. There is also a mini-lift with suture suspension, in which sutures are anchored into the underlying muscle, though some consider this technique to be unethical.
  • Soof The Suborbicularis Oculi Fat Lift. A type of facelift which may yield better results in the central third of the face, from the center of the brows to the frown lines and folds adjacent to the nose and mouth (the nasolabial folds). The mid-facial tissues at the deep layer (the periosteal layer) are lifted and repositioned, allowing the sagging cheek to be lifted in a vertical direction thus smoothing the nasolabial folds while enhancing the volume of the upper cheeks.
  • Temporal or lateral brow lift This procedure targets the upper one third of the face and is usually superficially supported by the skin at the temporal area, or the area of the temples above the ears. The brow is raised to a higher level, removing lines across the forehead and running vertically between the eyebrows. The temporal lift may also aid in the correction of upper eyelid ptosis (drooping). This lift may be performed independently or in combination with a traditional facelift.
  • Subperiosteal facelift A technique designed to lift the sub-orbital area as well as the midface.
  • Deep Plane Lift A relatively new procedure which is similar to the SMAS lift but with a little more attention given to the nasolabial area. As its name suggests, this procedure is performed on a deeper plane than the standard facelift. The deep plane lift can benefit the neck and jaw.

The idea to lift selected parts of the face with subcutaneous sutures is not new. The aim is to tighten the subcutaneous tissues as well as the overlying skin. This procedure has the advantage of lifting the desired parts of the face or the upper neck without scar, under local anesthesia, little down time and minimal discomfort and complications as it is a minimally invasive procedure. The results are not as dramatic as a surgical procedure, but it gives good results in selected cases with young or mature patients who don't want and don't need a major surgery. They only want maintenance of Youth or Beauty and not radical rejuvenation or embellishment.

A special needle is inserted under the skin with a polypropylene thread of suture material. One loop of this thread will lift the chosen part of the face and a second loop of the same thread will moor it to the more resistant tissues of the scalp. The advantage of this technique is to have two anchoring points. The result obtained is instant and leaves only a little scar in the scalp near the hair line. Should it be necessary to modify the result obtained the procedure is reversible: tightening or relaxing by adding or removing suture under local anesthesia. Folds of skin may be seen above the treated places and usually flatten over a period of two to three weeks. Dimples at the lifted place on the face are avoided with experience.

Indications
  • The best indication is a young patient with one or several "weak points" on his face of upper neck due to the ageing process:
    • Eyebrow ptosis
    • Significant naso-labial sulcus
    • Significant labio-mental sulcus
    • Mild ptosis of the lower face with pseudo-jowels
    • Mild skin excess on the upper neck
  • Young patients wanting to modify their appearances especially by a brow lifting or a lift of the cheek bone area responsible of a too deep naso-labial sulcus or labio-mental sulcus (marionettes). More mature patients who don't want a major procedure.
  • Patients complaining of an insufficient result shortly after a surgical cervico-facial lifting.
  • The Curl Lift is not an indication in a patient with a lot of skin excess even if they can be improved slightly. Only a moderate skin excess can be corrected satisfactorily.
  • Most of the patients want improve only on one part of face (upper, medium, lower) or upper neck, but several parts can be treated at the same time.
Summary

A rediscovered technique comes back for a new life. If mature or older patients need and request a conventional surgical face lift, a major operation, today, a large group of young patients or middle aged patients want to improve their appearance with minor procedure non invasive, under local anesthesia, in ambulatory, with little down time.

They want to treat the first signs of the ageing process, given by "father time", the first "weak point" and not the whole face or neck as older patients.

Many of them want also to improve what "mother Nature" has not given them such as an horizontal eyebrow or a too significant naso-labial sulcus.

The needle today is challenging the scalpel offering to such patients what they desire. Postponing the Scalpel and Youth and Beauty maintenance is the present policy in Cosmetic Surgery.

Feather Lift with APTOS Threads

Have you ever lifted the skin on your face and wished it stayed there? Now with the new Contour Thread lift, it could happen in the office, without having to go to the operating room, and with a quick recovery! These new threads allow the surgeon to lift the drooping tissues on the face and neck and give a fresh, rejuvenated look without having an invasive facelift.

Considered less invasive, this procedure was invented in 1999 by Russian cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Marlen Sulamanidze. The procedure utilizes blue, cogged thread (suture) material threaded throughout the face in specific application methods. The threads run along certain lines to anchor themselves into the tissue. The lifting effect is at its peak several months later when the collagen has formed around the threads. Some surgeons have described it as more of a bunching result than a lifting effect. This is still a relatively new procedure and the long term effects are unknown. Reportedly they can be removed, however not without inherent risks and complications. Some patients have reported visible bluing of the skin where the APTOS thread has been implanted superficially. Some have reported blue pimples which are actually the ends of the thread poking through the original puncture/insertion mark. As with all surgery, asymmetry is possible, as well.

Procedure Description

The threads are placed under the skin using a guiding needle. The cogs on the threads attach to the underside of the skin and gently lift the skin and secure it in the desired position. The excess thread is trimmed so it does not appear above the skin surface.

The procedure is quick, as an entire face can be done in about one hour. Local anesthesia is used and recovery is rapid, with some patients returning to work the next day, if desired. There is some swelling for a few days, and bruising, if present, will last about a week.

Dr. Chaudhari is one of the few cosmetic surgeons performing this procedure in Pune. Patient satisfaction with this procedure is high because of the lack of invasive surgery and the quick recovery period.

Concurrent Procedures

Because movement or pressure on the areas where the threads are placed will compromise their ability to hold the tissues, the Aptos thread procedure usually cannot be performed with other cosmetic procedures on face

  • What is "Feather-Lift" ? The "Feather-Lift" is a non-surgical approach to facial lifting utilizing the patented "Aptos threads".
  • Who is the best candidate ? Patients with:
    • Drooping of the soft tissue of the face and neck.
    • Weakly pronounced aesthetic contours.
    • Flaccid, flat face.
    • Premature aging and sun damaged face.
  • Is it hard to perform ? This procedure is safe, quick and easy to perform. Performed under local anesthesia and if desired, light IV sedation, the patient remains awake and alert. Using a needle, the Aptos threads are inserted into the subcutaneous fat, at a required depth, along the contours that were previously marked.
  • How does the "Feather-Lift" differ from conventional face lift ?
    • No scars.
    • Minimal discomfort.
    • Quick recovery, patients may return to work in less than a week.
    • Uniform gathering and even lifting of the soft tissues for a new volumetric contour of the face.
  • An instant face and neck lift
  • Aptos is a face and neck-lifting treatment using Aptos treads. It is a new innovative product that can provide the benefits of the surgical facelift procedure but without the risks. It actually supports the facial tissue without having to undergo a traditional facelift. Of course the results may not be as dramatic or effective as a facelift.
  • The Aptos face treads are made of polypropylene. It is a well-known ingredient and has been used for more than 50 years for stitching vessels and wounds. It is today considered to be one of the safest lifting procedures and the threads can be left inside the skin indefinitely.
  • It is a procedure that lasts from 5 to 10 minutes for smaller areas and 30 to 35 minutes for a full face. ; the entire process can be done at your surgeon's clinic under a local anaesthetic.
  • The Aptos thread is implanted through a thin hollow needle that is inserted in the skin. Minor temporary side effects such as bruising and swelling may occur.
  • The Aptos procedure does not leave any traces of intervention. The needle holes will disappear after a week.
  • The effects of the treatment can last from 2 to 4 years.
  • Telephone Please telephone the clinic the day before your scheduled surgery to confirm the time of your arrival for bed allocation and costs.
  • Diet Do not eat or drink any fluids after midnight the evening before your surgery, regardless of type of anaesthetic: local/general, if surgery in am or after 6.30am for pm surgery.
  • Medications
    • If you are taking regular medication check with dr regarding taking your medication on the day of surgery. If dr instructs you to take your medication on the morning of surgery, do so with a sip of water (no juice or other liquids).
    • Do not take any vitamin e once booked for surgery and after surgery for two weeks.
    • Do not take aspirin or any medication which contains aspirin for 10 days before and after your surgery. Please check the labels of any medications you take (even those available without a prescription) to make sure they do not contain aspirin (or acetyl salicylic acid). Please check our additional list. If you are not sure ask your doctor or pharmacist. Taking aspirin will increase your tendency to bleed at the time of surgery. Hormone replacement therapy should also be stopped before surgery. You will be instructed when to restart it.

  • What to wear
    • On the day of surgery, wear loose fitting clothes which do not have to be put on over your head and low heel shoes. No panty hose/tights. Do not wear make-up or nail polish or cosmetics. Bring scarf and sunglasses to wear after your operation.
    • Contact lenses cannot be worn in the operating room, wear glasses.
    • Leave all valuables and jewellery at home. Although you will be provided with a locker for your clothing while you are in surgery, the Hospital cannot be responsible for any valuables or jewellery misplaced or lost.
  • Smoking

    Smokers should try to stop smoking from the time of the surgery booking. Smoking irritates nasal passages and causes coughing which might bring on a bleed several days after your operation.

    It is also a contraindication with General Anaesthesia. Smoking also slows healing due to a decreased blood supply to the operated area.

  • Pre & Post-Operatively

    Report any signs of cold, infection, boils or pustules, fever, appearing before surgery.

  • Transport Instructions
    • You must nit drive home after your operation. You should make arrangements for a responsible person to accompany you home after your
    • operation. If you live more than an hour's drive from the hospital, we recommend you arrange to stay in Sydney for your post-operative night.
    • After surgery do not remove bandages or splint unless instructed to do so.
    • Sunlight: You must not expose fresh scars or swollen, red bruised skins to the sun or tanning booth. Sunlight may cause swelling or the skin to 'stain' due to excess deposition of pigment which can remain throughout.
  • The Night/Day Before Surgery
    • Nothing to eat or drink AFTER MIDNIGHT/6.30AM IF PM SURGERY.
    • Shower and wash your face with mild soap, shampoo your hair. Remove all make-up .Males- facial shaving must.
    • Do not cream your face afterwards.
    • Remove all jewellery.
  • The Morning of Surgery
    • No make-up. This includes MASCARA/ Kajal. Make sure that all mascara is removed from the eyelashes and lid margins as the material

    • N.B. If you have any questions about drug instructions please call the clinic.
    • Check with your doctor or nurse regarding regular medications. Post Op Instructions Following facial cosmetic Surgery

    Make arrangements to have someone drive you to, and from, your surgery. Having someone stay with you on at least the first night after your surgery is highly recommended. Be sure to fill your prescriptions before your surgery since it means one less thing for you to worry about afterwards. Arrive for your surgery in loose, comfortable clothing.

    Your top should button or zip rather than pull over your head. Take the antibiotics and pain medication only as prescribed by the office. Do not take any aspirin or any anti-inflammatory compounds for 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your surgery unless you first discuss it with your surgeon. If you are a smoker, you should not smoke for at least 2 weeks prior to surgery and 3 weeks after surgery.

    Smoking and chewing tobacco inhibit your circulation and can significantly compromise your surgical outcome. You should thoroughly wash your hair with an antibacterial shampoo or soap (available in drug stores) the night before surgery. To minimize swelling, you may use cool, clean compresses or ice wrapped in a dry cloth.

    Apply these gently to your face four to six times a day for the first twenty four hours after surgery. Sleep with the head elevated for 3 weeks after surgery. External sutures should be kept clean and dry. Dissolvable sutures will disappear on their own within 5 to 7 days. Non dissolvable sutures should usually be removed within 1 week of surgery. Surgical staples used within the hairline, will be removed gradually over several visits. You should do no vigorous exercise and should avoid any significant physical exertion, lifting or straining for a minimum of 3 weeks after your surgery, as this activity could disrupt your wound healing. Plan on taking it easy.

  • What can i expect after surgery?

    There will be a mild to moderate amount of pain and discomfort associated with the surgery. This should be easily controlled with oral medications.The discomfort and pain should begin to decrease within 48 hours after surgery and a significant increase in pain after this period should prompt you to call the office. Severe pain is rare; if you experience this, please contact us immediately.

    Bruising and swelling are to be expected after the surgery. These symptoms will peak within the first 36 to 48 hours after surgery, and will gradually subside over the next 10 to 14 days. To minimize the swelling, you should sleep with your head elevated for a couple of weeks after the surgery.

    It is not unusual to have some slight drainage for the first 48 hours after surgery. A bulky cotton compression dressing with drains will cover your scalp and face for 1to 2 days after surgery. It serves to help prevent blood collections under the skin. Prior to leaving for home on the day of surgery, you (or someone looking after you) should feel comfortable emptying and resetting the drains.

    During your first postoperative visit, the bulky dressing and, usually the drains, will be removed. You will then be placed in a supportive elastic face garment that is to be worn continuously, unless showering, for the first 7 to 10 days. After this time, it should be worn at night only for the next 3 weeks.

    It is of utmost importance to tell Dr. Chaudhari ahead of time if you have ever, received radiation therapy to the head or neck, taken steroids or immunosuppressive agents. Immunosuppressed patients (HIV positive, chemotherapy, AIDS etc.) and patients with certain autoimmune disorders may not be good candidates for this procedure as the risks of poor healing and infection leading to an everlasting scarring and poor esthetic results may be much higher. It is mandatory that you inform Dr. Chaudhari if you have any of these conditions before surgery.

  • Call the clinic promptly if you notice any of the following

    development of a temperature elevation exceeding 100.0 degrees. unusual bleeding or discharge from the incision. a significant progressive increase in pain which is not easily relieved by taking your prescribed medication. repeated or violent vomiting. If any of the above should occur after regular clinic hours, do not hesitate to contact Dr.Chaudhari at any time. 9822058916

  • How do care for myself after surgery

    You may shower or bathe on the third day after surgery. Use only tepid water. When brushing or combing your hair, use care around the incisions for the first 3 weeks. Often, having a friend or family member brush your hair is helpful. Do not rub, wash or massage your face until after you are examined and told it is all right to do so.

    Likewise, do not wear make-up until your surgeon says that it is all right to do so.

    Contact lenses should not be worn for the first 5 to 7 days after surgery, as placing them into your eye may put some strain on your healing face. You can expect to experience some numbness around your ear lobes, face and neck for several weeks after surgery. Tightness during mouth opening is not uncommon. Likewise, a feeling of tightness in your neck is also not unusual after surgery. This sensation is most pronounced in the first 1 to 2 days after surgery, while the bulky dressing is in place. This dressing may give rise to a slight sense of labored breathing or a mild difficulty with swallowing. While healing, turn your head from the shoulders, rather than twisting your neck.

    It is not unusual during the healing phase, to note some irregularities under the skin. These small distortions will gradually subside and eventually resolve. Small bumps under the skin are present where sutures were placed to resuspend the muscles of the face and neck. The skin often feels stiff while it is healing.

    Although most of these things resolve over a period of several weeks, be prepared to wait at least 6 months for your facelift to completely heal inside and out.

  • Recovery Timetable

    Approximate recovery after facelift is as follows:

    DAY 1 - Return home. Use cool compresses or ice for 24 hours.

    DAY 2-3 - Maximum bruising and swelling. Bulky dressing removed

    DAY 5-7 - Stitches removed or dissolving. Bruising starting to go away.

    WEEK 1 - Wear elastic garment at all times except when showering.

    WEEKS 2-3 - Wear elastic garment at night only. Swelling much improved. Some areas of the face and neck will feel quite stiff. Residual bruising can be covered by make-up.

  • I hereby authorise the above-named surgeon(s) to perform a surgical operation known as Upper & Lower Eyelid Surgery, Neck Lift , Cheek Lift & rhytidectomy (commonly known as facelift).
  • The procedure has been explained to me by the above doctor, and I understand the nature and consequences including possible risks of the procedure.
  • The following risks and side effects have been specifically made clear to me:
    • That there are always scars following this procedure. Every effort will be made to make them as inconspicuous as possible.
    • That there may be swelling in the face which can persist for several weeks and, in rare cases, longer following the procedure.
    • There may be discolouration of the skin (black and blue) for several weeks.
    • There may be scattered areas of numbness over the face and neck following surgery which may persist for an indefinite period of time.
    • That no promise have been made as to the amount of improvement either in terms of apparent age or the durability of the result.
    • That at times fluid or blood may accumulate in the operative sites which may require aspiration or drainage.
    • Surgery necessary to perform the procedure, as in all surgery, involves certain risks, including but not limited to the following:
      • - Bleeding
      • - Infection
      • - Tissue Damage
      • - Nerve Injury
      In rare cases, death or other serious bodily injury.
    • I recognise that during the course of the operation, unforeseen conditions may necessitate additional or different procedures than those set forth above. Also, emergency conditions may require performance of additional medical procedures. I therefore further authorise and request that the above-named doctor(s) perform such procedures as are, in his or her professional judgment, necessary and desirable, including but not limited to, procedures involving pathology and radiology. The authority granted under this Paragraph 4 shall extend to remedying conditions that are not known to the above doctor at the time the operation is commenced.
    • I consent to the administration of anaesthetic to be applied by or under the direction and supervision of the above doctor, anaesthetist, that he selects and to the use of such anaesthetics as he may deem advisable.
    • Because of any special conditions you may have such as high blood pressure, etc, your risk of undesirable side effects are greater than normal and you should consider that factor of added risk in your decision of whether or not to proceed with the surgery.
    • I am aware that the practice of medicine and surgery is not an exact science, and I acknowledge that no assurances or representations have been made as to the ultimate result of the operation or procedure.
    • I consent to be photographed before, during and after the treatment; that these photographs shall be the property of the above doctor and may be published in scientific journals and/or shown for scientific reasons.
    • I agree to keep the above doctor informed of any change of address so that he can notify me of any late findings, and I agree to cooperate with the above doctor in my care after surgery until completely discharged.
    • I understand that the doctors' fees are separate from the anaesthesia and hospital charges, and the doctor's fees are agreeable to me. There may be a fee if a secondary procedure is required. Personal expectations vary; please ensure that you have liaised with your doctor and he has understood your expectations of surgery. Some operations require secondary or multiple procedures to obtain a better result.
    • Secondary surgical procedures are much more difficult than primary procedures. The operations for repair are much more complex than the primary operations because of scarring and more bleeding and bruising. The possibility of nerve damage and poor healing is greater and most importantly, the results are unpredictable. It is important for the patient to realise that the results of secondary surgery will never be as predictable as those of primary surgery. If a secondary procedure is necessary, further expenditure will be required, namely surgeon's fees, the use of the operating room, anaesthesia and possibly hospitalisation. Before embarking onsecondary surgery, you should be aware of your possible future commitments to multiple procedures in order to gain an acceptable result for yourself.
    • I have read the above consent and fully understand the same and do authorise the above doctor to perform this surgical procedure on me.
    • I permit Dr Chaudhari to take medical photographs before during & after surgery for assessment & records.
