Aging is a natural process that starts in the body at a young age. As you age, your skin loses elasticity, starts to sag, your eyebrows furrow, and you develop excess skin under your eyes, as well as fat bags. The skin becomes thinner, the skin folds between the upper lip and the nose become more pronounced, and the corners of the lips droop downwards. As you get older, you notice more and more changes in the oval of your face, sagging jowls, double jowls, pronounced folds in the skin of the neck, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The most effective way to rejuvenate your face and make it look more radiant and youthful is a facelift.
The surgery can smooth forehead wrinkles, reshape the eyebrows, tighten the skin of the midface, lift the sagging lower part of the face and beautify the neck by removing excess fat.
Facelift surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and takes between 4 and 6 hours, depending on the volume.
The surgical incisions are chosen according to the patient’s gender, hairstyle, hair growth line, age, scars from previous surgeries, etc. The incisions are made in the hairy part of the head and around the ears. The incisions are made in such a way as to be as inconspicuous as possible. Often, other facial procedures (e.g. brow lift, eyelid surgery, fat grafting, injections of various fillers, etc.) are also performed together.
After the surgery, the head and face are bandaged with special pressure dressings.
