What Is The Housewife Facelift/Housewife Necklift?

The housewife lift is one of the quickest and most effective methods for taking years off the face and neck. It addresses excess and sagging skin, tightens the neck, softens the smile lines and marionette lines, eliminates the jowls, and elevates the patient’s cheeks in a vertical and natural direction. The housewife lift also addresses displaced or fallen fat and the loss of muscle tone. The procedure results in a very natural look that does not appear pulled. The housewife lift is a surgical procedure that is tailored to each individual patient to provide the best results based on each patient’s individual concerns and problem areas. One procedure can provide smooth skin on the face and neck, remove wrinkles, smooth fine lines and tighten sagging skin all at once.

The housewife lift is best suited for physically healthy individuals who do not smoke and are in good mental health. Patients who do smoke will be asked to quit for several months before and after and most doctors refuse treatment if patients do not agree to do so. The housewife lift is a form of cosmetic surgery and will take several months to recover fully from. Just as with any other cosmetic procedure there will be swelling and bruising immediately following surgery and patients will need to adhere to a strict regimen of antibiotics and painkillers accompanied with plenty of rest, a healthy diet and plenty of fluids.

About The Procedure

During the procedure, patients may be administered either general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. You and your doctor will be able to decide which option is more suited to you. Fine incision lines are generally traced along the hairline, behind the ears, and under the neck to minimize the appearance of scarring. The skin of the face and/or neck is repositioned and excess fat and skin can be trimmed away. Afterwards, many of the incision lines will be concealed by the hairline and the natural contours of the head. As the signs of bruising and swelling dissipate, the final improvements will come into focus and patients will be able to see the dramatic improvements in their overall look and feel.

The housewife lift itself can take anywhere from 3 to 5 hours, but patients will need to rest for several days afterwards before they can move about easily. They will also need to attentively care for themselves for 1-2 weeks before they can return to daily life as usual. Immediately after the housewife lift, bandages will be gently applied to the face to minimize bruising and swelling and drains will be applied to collect fluid and blood that may collect beneath the skin. In most cases, the patient will stay overnight following surgery to make sure they get adequate medical attention. Your surgeon will provide explicit instructions on how to care for the site, information on how and when to take medications, and other methods of managing discomfort and speeding healing.
