What is a Face Lift?


A face lift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure performed to correct sagging skin and wrinkles caused by aging. This procedure typically involves the face, neck, and sometimes the forehead.


Preliminary Evaluation: Determining Suitability


Candidates for face lift treatment undergo a detailed preliminary evaluation by a plastic surgeon. Factors such as skin condition, age, overall health, and expectations are assessed. Suitability is determined based on this evaluation.


Treatment Planning: Identifying Target Areas and Technique Selection


During face lift treatment, the areas to be addressed are determined. Different techniques such as lower face lift, mid face lift, or upper face lift may be used based on the patient's expectations and skin condition. A plan is created accordingly.


Surgery: Face Lift Procedure


The face lift procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and involves surgical incisions. Sagging skin is corrected, excess skin is removed, and the skin of the face and neck is reshaped. Muscles and other tissues may also be repositioned as needed.


Recovery Process: Care and Rest


During the recovery process, it's important for patients to get adequate rest and sleep. They should follow specific care instructions, and cold compresses may be used to reduce swelling and bruising.


Results and Long-Term Care


After a face lift procedure, initial results are immediately noticeable, but full recovery may take several weeks or months. To maintain long-term results, sun protection, a healthy lifestyle, and regular skincare are important.


Side Effects and Complications


Some temporary side effects and complications may occur after a face lift surgery. These may include swelling, bruising, temporary numbness, or infection. However, serious complications are rare.

Why Consider Face Lift Treatment?

A face lift is an effective option for reversing the effects of aging and achieving a younger, rejuvenated appearance. However, it's important to consult with a professional and clarify expectations before the procedure.
