Face Lift in Turkey
Generally, around the age of 50, the facial skin starts to feel “loose”. The skin, some of which is excessive, also wrinkles. What is done in this surgery is to remove this excess skin and tighten the skin.
Face lift surgery has been done for almost a hundred years and is therefore referred to as “classic” surgery. But there have been revolutionary innovations in the last decade.
Full face lift… It is used in patients where the face and neck sag together. As the years pass, the skin becomes worn and deformed due to factors such as aging, gravity, stress, malnutrition, alcohol and smoking. In such cases, the sagging skin is recovered by various operations.
Face lift is an operation that includes the applications of correcting the forehead that lost its elasticity, the eyebrows falling by gravity, the face that lost its tension and the sagging neck together. The full face lift operation, which is used in people with lines and wrinkles on the nose and mouth, and whose jaw line is loose-enlarged, eliminates the negative effects on the skin. The full facelift procedure, which is preferred by people who are at peace with themselves and life, does not prevent the aging process, but allows the person to reconcile with mirrors and achieve a younger appearance by removing the traces left by years.
How is Face Lift Surgery Performed?
In full face lift operations, the sagging skin tissue is removed as a result of surgical intervention and the face is made stretched. During this procedure, the muscle and support tissues under the skin are also tightened. In full face lift surgeries, the skin and tissue sagging downwards are collected by pulling upwards. Thus, patients who complain of sagging and wrinkling gain a younger appearance. Thanks to this operation, cheeks, cheekbones and jaw line become clear. In full face lift operations, the muscles in the face and neck are tightened.
Since the whole face is handled with full face lift operations, more successful results are obtained compared to mid-face lift operations.
This surgery especially treats the sagging neck very well.
Who Is A Face Lift Suitable For?
The age limit for this surgery is usually 50 years. The vast majority of people over the age of 50 benefit from this surgery. However, people with wrinkled and sagging skin can have this surgery at an earlier age.
Women who have complaints such as sagging and wrinkles on their face and neck can undergo this surgery. This surgery, which can be easily applied to women with strong facial bone structure in the form of skin elasticity, is also preferred because of its safety. This type of surgery, which has become increasingly popular recently, has been made simpler with the innovative applications of surgeons and technological developments.
If you pull your cheeks towards your ears in the mirror, you may have an idea about the effect of this surgery. This surgery may be suitable for you, especially if you complain of sagging in the neck.
What is the Purpose of Face Lift?
A full face lift is applied to anyone who wants to have a taut forehead, an eye-catching jawline and tighter skin details. Patients who undergo a full face lift operation gain a younger and healthier appearance. Before the full facelift surgery, the surgeon examines the person’s face thoroughly and draws the operation plan accordingly. Operation planning is made by taking into consideration your expectations after the operation and your pre-surgery complaints.
The full facelift operation takes approximately 8-10 hours. This operation can also be performed under local anesthesia. However, considering the comfort of our patients, we prefer to perform this operation under general anesthesia. After the surgery, the patient is discharged from the hospital after the routine procedures performed.
Things to Consider Before Face Lift Surgery
Before facelift surgery, one of the most important issues to be considered is the use of blood thinners such as aspirin (including Vitamin E and similar drugs), foods (such as garlic, red pepper, turmeric, cherry, kiwi …) and herbal teas as it increases the risk of bleeding. It comes to be discontinued at least 1 week before.
Another habit that should be ended before facelift surgery is smoking. Since smoking has a negative effect on the healing process of the surgery, it should be stopped at least 3 weeks before and should be avoided during the healing process.
Hair dyeing after facelift surgery is limited for 1 month, so it is recommended to dye the hair before facelift surgery.
