What is the aim of face lift surgery?
Correcting sagging, especially in the mid-face area
Removing deep lines formed at the junction of the lip and cheek
Removing skin sagging under the chin and revealing the contours of the chin
Removing sagging and wrinkles on the neck Face lift or rejuvenation surgeries are not surgeries to recreate the person. It is the restoration of youth contours on your face that you have lost for various reasons (age, genetics, gravity, environmental factors such as sun, dryness). Before deciding on surgery, non-surgical (botox, filler, thread stretching, laser, etc.) rejuvenation procedures should also be considered. Although these methods provide an improvement, they are not as effective as surgery.
Surgery and anesthesia
General or intravenous (sedation) anesthesia is administered. The surgical scar remains in front of the ear. If the temple and neck area is also treated, the surgical scar starts at the junction of the hair and skin on the temple, goes down in front of the ear, goes around the back of the earlobe and extends to the nape of the scalp. The sagging in the structures under the skin is repaired. Excess tissues are removed by stretching the skin. Usually a drain is used. If necessary, the eyelids and eyebrows can be intervened in the same session. Forehead lift can also be added to the procedure.
Postoperative
You will have bandages and dressings to reduce bleeding and swelling on your face after surgery. Drains are usually removed on the 1st or 2nd day depending on the bleeding situation. You usually stay in the hospital for 1 or 2 days. Stitches are removed within 1 week. You may have edema and bruises on your face for a few weeks. It may take several months for the full shape of your face to appear.
Risks
As with any surgery, there is a risk of anesthesia.
Bleeding, infection, suture opening, skin necrosis (gangrene) especially in smokers
Temporary or permanent paralysis of the facial nerve – Temporary or permanent hair loss at the suture line
