Who Can Have a Facelift?

If the face and neck skins began to sag but still did not completely lose their elasticity in men and women over the age of 40, a facelift can be performed.

The face brings the beauty of youth into the environment. With aging, the effects first begin to appear on the face; and people notice aging through the changes on your face, at first. Healthy diet, regular sleeping, living away from stress and sadness, doing exercise regularly, abstaining from smoking and alcohol, drinking plenty of water, staying away from the sun, and having a good genetic structure delay aging. However, it should not be forgotten that aging is still inevitable despite all these. Cosmetic products are the first option for preventing premature aging on the face. For problems that cosmetic products cannot solve, Plastic Surgery offers many surgical and non-surgical procedures. In general, these are called "facial rejuvenation procedures"

Facial rejuvenation is to slow down human's aging process and reverse it, even if just a bit, in accordance with and without changing his/her nature. With plastic surgery procedures performed in the right dosage, it is possible to enable people to grow old in a softer and better away. Procedures that can be performed in this regard:

There are three types of facial rejuvenation operations.

Upper facial rejuvenation:

Forehead region, temples, eyebrows, and upper eyelids. Endoscopic and open forehead lift procedures, temporal lift, eyebrow lift, suture suspension of the brows, upper eyelid operations (upper blepharoplasty) and Botox applications can be listed.

Mid-Face Rejuvenation:

Lower eyelids, cheeks and cheekbones. Lower eyelid operations (lower blepharoplasty), endoscopic mid-facelift, mid-facelift procedures on the lower eyelid, suture suspension of mid-face, fat injections, and filling can be listed.

Lower face and neck lift:

Face and neck lift operations, and liposuction to the neck can be listed. Non-surgical rejuvenation procedures include suture suspension, peeling, Botox, PRP (youth vaccine), and filling applications.

Are the results of facelift permanent?

The aging process continues also after surgical operation, and the lifted areas get loose and sag to a certain extent; however, the condition does not return to what it was before the surgery. The permanence of the surgical result varies depending on the technique used and the characteristics of the patient. Sagging occurs earlier in people with thick and fatty skin.

What are experienced after the surgery?

- Patients are kept in the hospital overnight after facelift. The next day, they are discharged after the removal of their drains.

- The swelling and bruise substantially regress in a week.

- The sutures are removed six days after surgery. The patient can take a bath 48 hours after surgery.

- Swelling and bruising may last 20 days. However, the final resolution of the swelling and the appearance of the final shape of the face may take three months, depending on the skin thickness and the procedures performed. As with all facial surgeries, the patient should be protected from direct sunlight for a period of 3 months.
