As we age, our skin and tissues naturally lose their elasticity, resulting in sagging and wrinkles. In addition to the natural effects of aging, those who gain and lose weight frequently can opt for a face lift surgery, also called "Rhytidectomy", to achieve a youthful appearance.
The goal of facelift surgery is to create a younger, more pleasing contour of the face. The face skin is lifted during surgery to achieve lifted, youthful skin with fewer fine lines.
If you have wrinkles and sagging on your face over the age of 40, a facelift can be performed. It is possible to undergo the surgery at a younger age. If necessary, the procedure can be combined with a neck lift. It is also possible to perform eyelid aesthetics, eyebrow lifts, and forehead lifts during this procedure.
A facelift surgery can be performed as a Mini Facelift, a Classic Face Lift, or a non-surgical face lift operation.
For patients with mild wrinkles and sagging, mini facelift surgery is an option. Shorter cuts are made from the hairline above the ear or in the natural folds around the ear during mini facelift surgery. Through these opened points, the basic tissues around the cheeks are lifted, the jowl is removed, and the facial tissue is corrected and shaped.
Typically, face lift surgery is performed on people 40 and above due to intense wrinkles and sagging. The goal of the procedure is to correct the sagging skin from the upper part of the mouth to the lower part of the eyes. The entry points are created by utilizing the natural curves around the front of the ear and starting right behind the hairline and close to the temples. To lift the lower face and eliminate sagging under the chin, incisions are made under the chin. In order to restore a youthful appearance to the face, excess skin is removed and sutured. Occasionally, facial fat and tissue are reshaped so that the skin appears younger. Thanks to this surgery, wrinkles are softened or eliminated. The skin is given a younger contour.
