Face Lift

Over time, differences appear on our faces. Smoking, stress, gravity, sun, loss of facial fat play a role in the youthful appearance of our face.

With facelift surgery, you can remove the signs of aging on the face and neck.

Who Should Apply For Face Lift?

You can apply for facelift surgery if:

  • You are physically healthy and do not have a medical condition that affects your body’s ability to heal.
  • You don’t smoke.
  • You are mentally healthy and have realistic expectations for facelift results.

Am I a Suitable Candidate for a Face Lift?

The best candidates for facelift surgery are patients who have signs of aging on the face but still have skin elasticity. Usually this includes patients aged 40 to 60, but people younger or older than this range may sometimes be good candidates for surgery.

Types of Facelift

Facelift operations are performed with the aim of reversing the changes in the facial skin due to aging by giving the face a younger and more vibrant appearance. It can be performed in different ways according to the expectations of the patients, the content of the problem and finally the facial and skin characteristics. The types of face lift surgeries are as follows:

Traditional Face Lift

A traditional facelift surgery involves incisions made around your ears, hairline, and under your chin. The surgeon separates your skin from the underlying tissues and tightens the muscles and other supporting structures of your face and neck. The surgeon also removes excess fat from the neck and jowl area when necessary. The surgeon then naturally repositions your skin to your face and removes excess skin. This surgery is generally recommended for people who want optimal improvement in moderate to significant facial aging.

SMAS Face Lift (SMAS rhytidectomy)

A SMAS (superficial muscle aponeurotic system) facelift targets the lower two-thirds of your face. In this surgical procedure, the surgeon tightens your muscle and trims excess skin and/or fat on your cheeks and lower face. The SMAS facelift is a variation of the traditional facelift.

Deep Plan Face Lift

In a deep plan facelift surgery, the surgeon removes the SMAS (muscle layer of your face), fat and skin as a single unit. Deep plan lifts often address multiple areas of your face at once.

Medium Face Lift

Mid facelift surgery treats the cheek area of your face. A surgeon repositions the fat on your cheek and tightens the skin in your cheek area.

Mini Face Lift

Mini facelift surgeries focus on lifting your lower face and neck area. It is a faster and less invasive surgery than other facelift surgeries. Surgeons usually recommend mini facelifts to people who are younger and only have early signs of sagging.

Skin Face Lift

Skin facelifts involve only your skin and usually focuses on your neck and lower face.

All About Face Lift

What is Face Lift?

As we age, sagging and wrinkles occur in the skin and tissues. The volume and displacement of the subcutaneous fat tissue in different parts of the face, as well as the changes in the facial bones, cause the face to look old. Face lift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that lifts and tightens facial tissues.

Face lift surgery involves removing excess skin, smoothing folds or wrinkles, tightening facial tissue and making the face youthful. It aims to provide a lively and rested expression.

How is Face Lift Surgery Performed?

A physical examination that primarily evaluates the person’s facial anatomy is performed. At this stage, the wishes of the person and whether these requests are applicable are checked and face lift surgery is planned in line with the recommendations. Before the Face Lift Surgery, a series of examinations are performed regarding the suitability of the patient for the surgery. These examinations are exactly the same as the tests applied before any surgical operation. The person’s blood values, hormone values, and whether there is a disease that prevents surgery are checked. After it is decided that the person is a suitable candidate for surgery.

Things to Consider Before Facelift:

The patient’s general health status is evaluated and existing chronic diseases should be detected

  • The patient’s general health status is evaluated and existing chronic diseases should be detected
  • People who use blood thinners should stop consuming them at least 10 days before the scheduled date of the surgery
