RI facelift - News update:
The Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH) has published a systematic review and economic analysis (Canadian-based) on subcutaneous immunoglobulin (SCIg) and intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) for treatment of primary immunodeficiencies (PIDs). Although the use of IVIG for such indications is well established, SCIg is now available and offers a number of potential advantages. The authors therefore sought to compare the clinical and cost-effectiveness of these agents to inform public policy. Systematic review of the literature yielded only one comparative randomised controlled trial; an additional eight comparative observational studies were located. The main findings were: • On the limited evidence available, SCIg and IVIg appear to be similar in terms of most outcome measures • Quality of life (QoL) was higher among SCIg patients. • Hospital-based IVIg was associated with fewer quality-adjusted life-years (QALYs) than home-based IVIg or SCIg (0.648 versus 0.659 and 0.675 respectively) and higher associated costs (C$21,273 versus C$19,433 and C$20,065). The authors conclude that “the comparison between IVIg and SCIg is based on limited clinical and economic information. SCIg may be considered as a reasonable alternative for patients with contraindications to IVIg and poor venous access. The widespread adoption of SCIg may be imprudent, until more information becomes available”. More...

As we become older the gravity, sun exposure and everyday stress leave their marks on our faces. Wrinkles appear between the nose and the mouse, the skin becomes lose and drop below the jaw line and extra fat and skin accumulates around the neck. Facelift cannot stop the aging process but it can "turn back time" by removing extra skin and fat and straitening the muscles.

The ideal candidates for the procedure are patients with skin of the face and neck that started to drop but still has its elasticity.

The operation last from 3-7 hours (it can be longer if additional procedures are done). Some surgeons prefer to work on each side at a time and some do both sides simultaneously. The placement of the cuts and the magnitude of the operation depend on face structure and the correction required. The cut usually starts on the forehead goes in front of the ear and behind the ear lobe, additional cut below the chin is made to repair the neck. The surgeon separates the skin from the fat, removes the extra fat, strengthens the muscles and returns the fat pockets where they use to be. Afterwards he stretches the skin, cuts the extra and closes with sutures. A drainage tube usually left from both sides to draine secretions and blood and the face is bandaged for the first 24 hours.

Every operation has its risks although not common those include, bleeding, infection, damage to facial nerves (usually temporal), face asymmetry and delayed healing. Patients who smoke have higher rates of delayed healing.

There may be pain or uncomfortable felling after the recovery that can be treated with painkillers. A sensation of ants crawling usually disappears after weeks or a month after the surgery. Bandages are removed after a day or two and your face may look swollen. Red or pale with bleeding spots, you must remember that those will disappear after few days or weeks.

You can get out of bed after 24 hours but you should avoid any efforts for at least a week to help the healing process. You should avoid alcohol, hot tubs and saunas for at least a month. Most of the patients feel disappointed at first, their face look and feel strange but after a few weeks the scars will heal and you`ll be able to see the final results. Many patients return to work after 3 weeks. Sometimes you may need to use make up to blur the hemorrhage spots.
