Success in Face Lift Surgery

Face Lift Surgery is an operation that aims to bring back young appearance of the face naturally by lifting saggy face tissues and tightening them. It is usually said that a face lift works to “turn back time” and help patients think that they look like a younger version of themselves.

Face lift is a surgical procedure that improves the visible signs of aging on the face and neck. These visible signs that cause sagging of face are loosening of the skin, deepening of fold lines between the nose and the corners of the mouth, and excess skin on the loose skin and neck area that can be called “double chin” or “turkey neck”.

Surgical Procedure

There are many types of face lift surgery. Every procedure is personalized for the specific needs of the patients. Face lift techniques vary from easy, minimally invasive approaches through cuts in front of ears, to wider face and neck lift procedures. Many modern face lift techniques do not only compress the skin, but also the soft tissue that is called SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system). There has been a lot of advancement in face lift techniques in the last ten years, and each of these are improved to give more natural results with minimal scratches and shorter recovery time.

Anesthesia

Face lift surgery can be performed in a hospital or an independent surgical facility. When you are ready for the surgery, your surgeon and the medical team will implement the plan you agreed on. Local or general anesthesia may be performed depending on your surgeon’s suggestion and your individual needs. You will know what is expecting you because you will decide these before your procedure starts.

After the Operation

Frequently Asked Questions

Can Face Lift Surgery Applied on my Eyelids too?

It is not uncommon for you to hear the words “face lift” when mentioning face lift surgery. It is understandable that many people think a face lift surgery includes the whole face, that s, the eyes, brows, cheeks and chin. As a result, your eyes and forehead are parts of your face. However, what is really meant with a face lift include the face line, cheek and chin line. But why? This results from anatomical differences. The skin, muscles and other tissues encircle eyelids along the eyebrows, and the eyelids are very different. For each of these areas, techniques that are very different than those used during a face lift are required. Patients choose eyelid lifting, eyebrow lifting or neck contour operations to be performed at the same time with a face lift. However, in this case an aesthetic surgeon will perform two different procedures in one operation. Likewise, patients who want to have younger eyes and neck area can generally reach their goals with an eyelid lift or a neck lift.

How are the long term results of a face lift?

A face lift surgery naturally ages with you although it looks natural now when performed by an experienced, board approved aesthetic surgeon. Nothing can stop the normal aging process, but after a face lift you always look younger than you did before you had surgery. In addition, there are certain things you can do so that you keep your results in the best way. It is important to have a healthy, stable weight; changes in weight may cause the skin to stretch again. In addition, you should have a consistent, good quality skin care to keep your skin healthy and protect it against aging. A face lift surgery is a safe procedure and a great way to vitalize your appearance when performed by an experienced aesthetic surgeon. The best way to decide whether a face lift operation is suitable for you is to consult a board certified aesthetic surgeon.

Is it suitable for me?

Deciding whether a face lift surgery is the right choice for you is a personal decision. A face lift surgery may be right for you if the following is true for you:
If you have sagging skin on your face
If you have realistic expectations
If you are over 40
If you are physically healthy and you will specially take care of your skin during recovery

What are the possible side effects?

Swelling and bruising may be seen following a face lift surgery. Cuts are rarely important because they are hidden. It is inevitable that the face temporarily gets numb, but it goes back to normal in a few months. Occasionally, a hematoma drainage may be needed and it may require surgery.

What is the Best Age for a Face Lift?

Waiting for the skin’s aging to get very severe will decrease your chance to get the best result. Starting the face rejuvenating process early is the best because of certain reasons: -For most people, changes in the face that are related to aging start to become visible in the beginning of 30’s. While these changes advance in 40’s and 50’s, deep face lines that result from fat loss and face folds create permanent skin changes that are difficult to correct solely with a face lift. During your 40’s and 50’s, having an early procedure with fillings and a face lift will help prevent these permanent changes.- In general, people in their 40’s and 50’s are healthier than those who are over 60. Consequently they are better candidates for a surgical procedure and they recover easier. Today, the age to perform a face lift surgery is 50. The most important factor, in fact, is not only your age, it is whether you have skin changes that can be corrected with a face lift. Another factor is whether you are healthy enough to undergo the procedure. As a result, getting a face lift surgery is a very personal decision and you should always consult your aesthetic surgeon who is experienced. Today, there are many options that do not require a surgical operation, many changes in the skin that are related to aging can be changed without the need for a face lift. Sagging of lower face and neck are still areas that require a surgical face lift and a neck lift, but these changes tend to appear, but these changes do not tend to appear after the aging of the middle and upper parts of the face.

Why Should I Consider a Face Lift Surgery?

The skin starts losing its elasticity as it ages, and face tissues lose volume. In the end, this results in double chin in lower face area, deep wrinkles and loose skin on the neck. Even though this is a natural part of aging, patients who are uncomfortable with these signs of aging may consider a face lift so that it will be a better solution. Following a face lift surgery, it is usually seen that the self-confidence of individuals increased and they have a more energetic attitude that results from their healthy appearance.

How is a face lift performed?

There are many types of face lift methods and each procedure is highly personalized for the specific needs of each patient. Face lift techniques vary from easy, minimally invasive approaches through cuts in front of ears, to wider face and neck lift procedures. Many modern face lift techniques do not only compress the skin, but also the soft tissue that is called SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system). There has been a lot of advancement in face lift techniques in the last ten years, and each of these are improved to give more natural results with minimal scratches and shorter recovery.

How Does a Face Lift Operation Process Go On?

The technique used by an aesthetic surgeon during the face lift depends on a range of factors such as the anatomy of the patient and the patient’s personal goals, the degree of the face lift (mini or standard) and whether another procedure is performed simultaneously. A face lift is usually performed under general anesthesia, but sedation and local anesthesia can be used in some of the less comprehensive procedures. After the first incision is made, the skin is separated from the underlying connective tissue and muscles. This allows the plastic surgeon to reposition the deeper face tissues, get rid of those that are afloat and form a much tighter base for the skin. The skin that remains after the excess skin is removed is gently laid over the rejuvenated face tissues and gives the face a smooth, younger looking contour without tightening the skin too much.

What Happens During the Day of Operation?

A face lift surgery can be performed in a hospital or in an independent surgical facility. When you are ready for the surgery, your surgeon and the medical team will implement the plan you agreed on. Local or general anesthesia may be performed depending on your surgeon’s suggestion and your individual needs. You will know what is expecting you because you will decide these before your procedure starts.
When your surgery is finished, you will be taken to a recovery unit where you will be closely monitored. Dressing can be applied on the cut areas and there may be one or two small tubes behind the ears. After your surgeon’s approval, you can go and get rest. Someone should be ready to take you home because of anesthesia. It may be beneficial if someone is with you during the first 24 to 48 hours.

What are the other Aesthetic Procedures that Can Be combined with a Face Lift?

It is very logical to fit the recovery periods of other procedures because a recovery period is already going to be had after a face lift. As a result, many patients have other aesthetic procedures done together with a face lift surgery. Neck lift and brow lift are procedures that are usually performed together with a face lift. These procedures help protect the balance of the face and they provide more apparent and dramatic results. In addition to this, patients should pick surgeons that are experienced in every area of face plastic surgery for safety and to have good results.

Is a Face Lift Procedure Safe?

Every surgical procedure has certain risks. The possible risks of a face lift surgery are the following: Negative scarring, Bleeding (hematoma), Infection, Poor scar recovery, Risks of anesthesia, Improvable hair loss on the cut areas, Face nerve injury, Face asymmetry, Skin loss, Numbness or other changes in skin feeling, Fat necrosis, Fluid accumulation, Continuing pain, Skin contour irregularities, Skin color change-sensitivity or swelling. The stitches may form a surface on the skin on its own, become visible and can cause irritation that requires them to be removed. Deep vein thrombosis, cardiac and pulmonary complications (rare), the opportunity for a revision surgery.

How should I prepare for a face lift surgery?

Your surgeon will give instructions prior to the procedure. He or she may want to learn about your medical history, and will do a physical examination to determine whether you are suitable for surgery. Notify your surgeon if there is anything that requires you to take a medical leave from your personal doctor or your doctor of internal medicine. Preparations for the surgery starts after your surgeon examines you and discusses with you the details of the procedures. If your surgeon suggests you to stabilize your weight and follow other suggestions about lifestyle prior to the procedure, do your best to follow these suggestions in order to get the best results and minimize complications. Your surgeon will ask the following prior to the procedure: Quit smoking six weeks before the surgery in order to encourage recovery of scars and decrease scarring. Smoking increases your risk to have serious complications. Avoid aspirin, non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID’s: Advil, Motrin, Aleve) and vitamins / homeopathic diets. These may increase bleeding. Drinking a lot of water before and after surgery is highly important for a safe recovery regardless of the type of procedure that will be performed.

Face and Neck Lift

Wrinkles on face and neck get deeper with aging. The skin sags due to gravity and loses its volume. Face and neck lifting operations repair sagging skin, flatten deep wrinkles and make your face look like it did 10 years ago.

Face lift operations do not only remove the sagging on skin but also remove the sagging on SMAS under the skin, which is composed of muscles and connective tissues. For this purpose, according to the needs, the excessive SMAS tissue can be removed or folded. Treatments in the subcutaneous layer creates a more permanent effect.

Face lift operations are effective especially in cheeks, jowl and neck. The sagging skin and subcutaneous tissue are stretched up to form a natural appearance. The age-related decrease in adipose tissue can be treated using fat injections. We can also perform eyelid plastic surgery in order to get rid of the saggy skin and bags around the eyes.

Patients should stop smoking, taking blood diluents and have normal levels of blood pressure before the face lift operation in order to prevent occurrence of any complications. Smoking disturbs the recovery of wounds and nutrition of tissues. Blood diluents and high tension increase the risk of bleeding and reduce the post-operative satisfaction.

Sagging skin and deep wrinkles can be treated using face lift and fat injections. Patients can also get rid of small and fine wrinkles in one operation using fractional CO2 laser treatment

The cut of the face lift operation stretches out from the front to the rear of the ear. 6 months after the operation, the scar will be almost impossible to notice.
Mid-face lift operation is the preferable treatment if there is sagging skin under eyelids and around the nose. This operation can be performed from the same cut in the lower eyelid plastic surgery. Sagging fat pads are upheld and fastened onto the bones. This ensured more permanent results.

Patients can be discharged from hospital the day after the operation which is performed under general anesthesia. Patients can return to daily life after about 10-15 days. Facial edemas rapidly disappear within weeks; however, it may take up to 3-6 months for the face to take its final shape.
