Face Lift is a type of aesthetic surgery performed to eliminate deformation and sagging of the face with aging.
The main reason for the sagging of the face with aging is the loss of the facial bones due to aging, especially the jaw bones, and the loosening of the skinaround the facial bones. Cigarette consumption and excessive exposure to sunlight also adversely affect the skin, making wrinkles and sagging permanent.
Face Lift is used for the treatment of sagging and wrinkles of the whole face and neck skin.
Primarily, the lifting process is performed for the muscles and connective tissues of the skin in Face Lift which is performed in order to remove the deformation of the face. Then, the excess fat accumulated in the skin is removed. After removing all excess fat from the skin, all incisions made during Face Lift surgery are closed.
Although they vary according to the deformation on the face of the patient, Face Lift surgeries last 3-5 hours on average. After Face Lift surgery, a protective dressing is used to protect the face from external factors.
The sutures completely disappear in a maximum of 7 days after Face Lift surgery. After a certain process, the feeling of tension and marks on the face also disappear completely.
Since the deformation of the face will continue after Face Lift surgery, more Face Lift surgeries may be needed in the area where Face Lift surgery is performed after a certain period of time.
