Face Lift

The Facelift is a surgical procedure performed to remove sagging skin from the face, neck and under the chin. After facelift surgery, the patient will feel better, more alive, beautiful and younger. During facelift surgery, the sagging, excess skin is removed to make the face firmer. If the patient’s skin has not lost its elasticity, facelift surgery will result in greater success. Facelift surgery can be performed alone or in conjunction with a brow lift and blepharoplasty. The most suitable candidates for facelift surgery are people between the ages of 40 and 65 who suffer from sagging skin and excess fat deposits on the face and neck, but also have good skin elasticity. The surgical time of a facelift procedure is between 3 and 4 hours. Although general anesthesia is preferred for this surgical procedure, local anesthesia may also be used. The location of the incisions made during the procedure is adjusted to the structure of the face and the surgical technique.

In general, sagging and fat accumulation appears on the face of many people over 50 years of age. The most disturbing items are irregularities in the skin of the jawline and neck, and wrinkles in front of the ear. At this stage, facelift surgery should be performed, and with the success of this procedure, rejuvenation is achieved. Sometimes Facelift will be with SMAS technique. Sometimes classic technique.

As after all surgical procedures, mild pain may occur for a few days after the facelift. Such pain can be easily avoided with the help of medications administered to the patient after the surgery.
