How is Face Lift surgery done?

Although it varies depending on the choice of the Plastic Surgeon, it is generally performed with the patient completely asleep (under general anesthesia). The skin incisions to be made start from the hairline level, pass just in front of the ear and behind the ear and end in the scalp. As mentioned, traces are left in hidden areas, reducing their visibility. With face lift surgery, sagging and wrinkles on the under-eye, mouth and chin are tried to be removed. It is aimed to achieve a younger appearance.

What should be considered during the preparation for the operation?

Smokers should quit smoking, Aspirin and other non-steroidal pain relievers should be avoided due to the risk of bleeding. If the patient is using drugs for other diseases, they should continue to use them in consultation with their doctor.
