Face Lifting Operation
Our skin can lose its tightness and firmness and become floppy and unattractive as a result of factors like aging, losing weight. In mild cases incisionless techniques such as Spider Web Technique can be advantageous however lifting operations are more effective in patients with excessive skin sagging. The sagging is more apparent in the face area especially. According to the examination; surgeons can offer both surgical and non-surgical approaches but surgical approach is the most beneficial one in complicated cases. Not only loss of the skin elasticity but also loss of muscle tonus and atrophy in the bony structures can lead to an older look. Therefore removing of the excess skin tissue as well as providing the volume is necessary in these kind of advanced cases.
Why should I have a Face Lifting operation?
If your skin sagging is so severe that cannot be fixed with non-surgical approaches, if you want to have an immediate result and you don’t want to wait for months to see the results; then you might be a good candidate for a face lifting operation. There are several techniques for face lifting operations the ones with minimal retractions and the ones that with a more aggressive approaches. You can decide the best technique that will work for you in the consultation with your doctor.
Face lifting operations are performed under general anesthesia and it takes to perform the procedure nearly 1 hour when it is performed by a team of plastic surgeons. It is really important to decrease the operation duration to give less anesthesia to the patient yielding a better postoperative period to the patient. You will be advised not to eat 6 hours before the surgery and that is all! You will get a physical examination by your surgeon and anesthetist. After the examination; we will prepare you for the surgery. You will receive a sedation in order to reduce the preoperative anxiety and fell yourself more comfortable.
As it was mentioned above; the loss of elasticity in the skin is not the only reason of the older look. Volume loss, decreased muscle tonus and bone atrophy are some other results of the aging process and these give an older and tired look to the person. To achieve a better, fresher and younger look; it is often necessary to combine multiple techniques. Face lifting operations can be combined with “Cihantimur Fat Transfer”, “Spider Web Method” and “Fractional Laser Surfacing”. In order to achieve a better look; combination of the necessary procedures is necessary since the aging is not derived from only one fact.
Recovery and Results :
After the face lifting operation the recovery period depends on your physical status, age, general health and condition mainly. The operation itself does not take too long therefore you receive a mild anesthesia. Since the anesthesia that you receive is mild; you will not have problems associated with anesthetic agents after the operation. This is especially important and can be achieved with only a team of plastic surgeons like we have. After the operation you will have stiches and bandages which will be removed after the 10th day. You can start to do your daily activities just after the operations but we do not advise you heavy lifting, running or activities that require excess physical activity. The more you rest, the faster your recovery will be.
