The human face is the most important area that defines the person and because it is the most visible area that attracts the most attention, people pay the most attention to these areas. There are many areas on the human face, and even the unpleasant little uglinesses in them can make the person very upset. Among these areas, the nose, ear, eyebrow and eyelid are examined under separate headings. The remaining cheek, chin, lip, forehead and neck areas are treated together and generally with similar methods. are made.
As age progresses, changes occur in all layers of our skin. In addition to thinning in the superficial layers, decrease in glands, rash, color changes, thinning occurs in the tissues that provide support and tension in the deep layers, and in the elastic fibers. As a result of these, dryness and hardening of the skin, looseness, Findings such as wrinkle formation, drooping and surface staining occur. For this reason, it is necessary to seek treatment with different methods for different layers and various disorders that occur in them. For this reason, it would be appropriate for people who have the knowledge and skills to perform these different applications in an important area such as the face and who know which method will provide maximum benefit to the person to undertake this procedure.
There are so many things to be done in the face and neck area in terms of aesthetics, these are to collect loose and sagging tissues, skin removal for skin laxity, abrasion for upper lip wrinkles, lift for eyebrow area, forehead wrinkle removal, frowning eyebrows, under-eye bags, upper eyelid. It may require very different applications such as plastic surgery such as correction of sagging, botox and filling applications, fat tissue transfers, skin peeling (ablative) or laser procedures that tighten the deep layers. The physician should determine which method will provide maximum benefit to the person and apply accordingly. Although the wishes of the patient are important, the experience of the doctor will reveal which method will be more useful. Although filling application or regional stretching and recovery procedures are usually sufficient in the early periods, further interventions are inevitable in more advanced cases.
Mid face lift-Mid face lift
Although some people are at a very advanced age, in many people, due to the weakening of the supporting tissues and the effect of gravity, loosening occurs on the cheek down and forward, which occurs in the form of accumulation towards the sides of the lips and deepening of the line in this region. In order to correct this image, either to correct this sagging with a method called mid-face lift surgery or to fill the line on the sides of the lips, which has been deepened in the simplest way, can be performed. Since mid-face lift surgery is performed through the hair and inside the mouth, the scars of the surgery are hidden. Since the skin is not removed in mid-face lift surgery, no scars are left on the skin. This is a recovery surgery, not a skin stretching surgery. It is more suitable for middle-aged people. When necessary, very good results are obtained if reinforcement is applied with filling application to reduce the depth of the nose-lip line.
All Face Lift
In more advanced cases, laxity, sagging and wrinkles increase in the skin and subcutaneous tissues of the face, and facial recovery processes begin to be insufficient. In this case, both the removal of skin laxity and the removal of the subcutaneous layers to the areas where they are in the old and youth periods are required, and this is only possible with facelift surgeries. Classically, an incision is made from the front of the ear to the back of the ear, and the skin is pulled towards this part and the excess skin is removed. The main thing is not only to stretch the skin, but also to stretch the subcutaneous carrier membrane layers (superfascial musculo-aponeurotic fascia). During facelift, these areas are often included in the surgery to remove laxity under the chin and neck. Many patients want to participate in the surgery in the temple and eyebrow areas, and they want to be rejuvenated in these areas, so that face lift, neck lift and eyebrow lift operations are performed in a single operation. In addition to these, tissue filling can be performed on the edges of the lips, between the eyebrows and other depressions of the face. Brow Lift and Forehead Lift operations are often performed independently of facial surgery.
In cases that are not too advanced, facelift can be performed with a short scar (short surgical scar) method. With this procedure, the cheeks and upper parts of the neck can be corrected. In this surgery, the scar starts in front of the ear and turns very short behind the ear. Surgery to correct the sides of the eyebrows and the lower parts of the neck. is necessarily extended.
One of the most important changes that upset people is the fine wrinkles that form in the face area over time. In order to eliminate these, superficial ablative (peeling the upper layers of the skin) laser application or dermabrasion can be applied during facial surgeries, so that the face area is both recovered and free of wrinkles, face lift surgeries alone are insufficient in removing wrinkles. Although face lift operations can be performed in any season, superficial laser and abrasion procedures are not preferred in sunny seasons.
In facial surgeries, there is generally a one-day hospital stay, followed by a period of rest at home for a few days. After these few days, the patient can easily meet his own needs at home. Some bruising and swelling (edema) on the face and around the eyes should be expected, these changes last for about a week and if the stitches that need to be removed are used, they are removed in a week, and patients who want to travel are allowed to travel after 3-4 days by using self-dissolving stitches.
