FACE LIFT

With the effects of aging, negative effects of sun, stress, and gravity, the skin on your face prolapses and our young face contour deforms. The main goal in face lift surgery is to renew the aged skin and get rid of the sagging, wrinkled face image. The sagging cheek and chin edges are smoothed and a young face contour is obtained. Often, these operation is accompanied by eyelid surgery, neck and brow lift procedures, face rejuvenation procedures.

Larger incisions are applied. It is applied with incisions that start from within the hair and continues from the natural curves of the front and back ear. For cheek and chin lines, deep soft tissues are hung and neck muscles are tightened. Excess skin is removed from the incision.

Detailed medical information about the patient is obtained. The patient is asked about, his disease history and if he is using any other medications. The complaints and expectations of the patient about his face area are asked. It is discussed together with the patient that what can be applied to his face and what kind of look can be obtained. The patient is examined. Necessary photographs are taken.

Eating begins early, the patient is mobilized after feeding. The patient is hospitalized for 1-2 nights. After 1-2 days of surgery, the drains are taken off. There may be small swelling and bruises on the face. These will be at tolerable levels after 10-14 days. Showers can be taken 1-2 days after discharge. Your sutures are absorbable. You can go to work in about 2 weeks. Light activities can be started after 2-3 weeks and heavy activities after 1 month.

It’s a question related to the pre-operative state of the patient. You will have an approximate 5-10 year younger appearance.

Surgeries can’t be performed without incisions. The best way is to hide scars. That is why the incision is placed to the line that goes from hairline towards natural curves of the ear. Over time, the scars will soften and their colors will not be apparent. Your doctor will apply treatment for your scars.

There are some risks with anesthesia or surgery. Some general risks are; bleeding , infection, asymmetry due to nerve damage, prolonged swelling, and distinct scar appearance. They are very uncommon and treatable. The risks are always higher in smokers.

We can turn the clock back with these surgeries but aging goes on. For about 5-10 years, there is no need for a second surgery. With the additional operations such as brow lift, blefaroplasty, BBL broadband, fat injection ,botulinum toxin we can get longer lasting results.
