Facelift in Tijuana, Mexico
Facelift Surgery in Tijuana
Gravity takes its toll on us as we age. As we become older, we lose part of the fat in the hollow behind our cheekbones. Furthermore, as we become older, our muscles and skin of the face loosen. Our way of life, unprotected sun exposure, and stress all impact how we look as time passes.
There are various common outcomes: deepening of the fold lines extending from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Along the jawline, sagging jowls might occur. And the tissue surrounding the eyes begins to droop, giving the face a sad and exhausted appearance.
The rhytidectomy, more commonly known as a facelift, can provide a more youthful look. Tissues are raised and tightened, and excess skin is eliminated. Surgery cannot stop the natural aging process, but it can provide a rested and renewed appearance. Facelift surgery in Mexico can be combined with eyelid surgery and brow lift surgery.

About Facelift Procedure
Facelift surgeon in Tijuana Mexico Dr. Diego Ampudia makes small incisions at the hairline in front of the ear and extends under the earlobe to the lower scalp. Through the incisions, he tightens the underlying structures of the face, including the SMAS deep layer tissue and muscles. The skin is stretched and tightened back into place. Any scars from the incision lines will be well-hidden within the hairline or another area of the face, so the scars are almost undetectable.
Liposuction of the neck and jowls may also be recommended to create a more attractive contour around the chin and neck.

Recovering from Facelift Surgery
Patients recovering after facelift surgery should rest quietly at home for a few days and avoid excessive activity, hard lifting, or physical effort. Pain medication can be used to alleviate any post-operative pain or discomfort. After a few days, Dr. Diego Ampudia will check on the patient’s development and remove the stitches within a week or two of the procedure. Any possible concerns should be immediately reported to Dr. Diego Ampudia, who may examine the patient and prevent the situation from worsening.
