Face lift is used to achieve a youthful appearance by treating the hanging, wrinkled and weakened facial tissue, which suffers from the effects of gravity and aging. Facelifting is a purely surgical technique that achieves more successful and lasting aesthetic results over many years compared to non-invasive techniques. It is applied after the average age of 35-40 years. The limit extends to the age of 60-70 years. This operation can be performed by anyone, male and female, who are healthy and have realistic expectations. The surgery, known to the public as a facial lift, is also commonly referred to as a 3D facelift.
After at least 8 hours of empty stomach, one then goes to the hospital where the surgery is performed, where blood and other tests must be performed. After the anesthesia evaluation you start with the operation. You should have stopped smoking, aspirin, NSAIDs and herbal supplements at least 10 days before surgery. These can increase bleeding and disrupt wound healing.
The surgery is performed under general anesthesia (some surgeons may also prefer local anesthesia). The surgical incision starts in front of the ear, extends upwards into the hairy scalp and under the earlobe to the rear (behind the ear). Depending on the type of technique, only the skin and muscle layer together or over the bone lying facial tissue is tightened, excess skin and tissue are cut off and thus removed. The misplaced fatty tissue is hanged pulling the original place. A neck lift may also require a small incision under the jaw. In addition, eyebrow lift, forehead lift, and aesthetic eyelid surgery, planned by prior agreement, may also be added to the face lift operation. This makes the result more perfect. After the operation, one night is spent in the hospital.
When you come out of
surgery, your face and neck will be wrapped with elastic bands or even a face
corset. Thus, they prevent excessive swelling, accelerate the healing of the
tissue and generate pressure to prevent accumulation of fluid and blood under
the skin. From the incision behind the ear, small drains can escape to prevent
accumulation of fluid and blood under the skin. These will be removed after 24
hours if there are no problems. You can take a shower 4-5 days after surgery.
You should not drink alcohol for one week and not smoke for a month. Within 2
weeks of surgery, you should avoid serious activities that require excessive
exercise. You should wear the corset for 2 weeks at night, as advised by your
doctor. If you lay two pillows under your head when lying down, the swelling
can disappear faster. Never lie face down on the pillow and twist with the
