Face Lifting, Facial Rejuvenation
Depending on how this process affects you, there are interventions and surgeries that can slow the aging process or provide you with a more young appearance.
Some methods of facial rejuvenation can be used to diminish the lighter aging symptoms and are certainly not an alternative to face lift surgery. It is also used as an adjunct to and helping face lift operations. If your face is full of symptoms and you are disturbed, the best thing to do in this case is facelift surgery. This surgery should be performed by Plastic Surgeons under operating room conditions. Often facelift surgery is applied to patients over 40 years of age. Face lift is a generic name given to operations performed in a wide range. It is applied to different zones (forehead, cheek, neck, etc.) according to the needs of many different technicians. Depending on the procedures performed and the techniques used, the duration of the operation may take 3-8 hours. When planning these surgeries, plastic surgeons distinguish the face as upper, middle and lower. The upper part contains the forehead. The middle face part contains the cheekbones and the upper lip area. The lower face includes the lower lip, chin, and neck. When these surgeries are planned, some or all of these regions are targeted according to the needs of the person. The cuts are placed on the natural folds of the body and in the hairline so that the incisions are not visible.
Surgery can be done with local anesthesia or general anesthesia in the presence of sedation (sedative drugs given by the anesthesiologist).
It is not painful after surgery. You will feel a little tightness with some swelling. Drains can be used in surgery and are usually removed within 2-3 days of surgery. Most of the stitches do not need to be taken because they are absorbable stitches. A few stitches to be taken are also taken within a week. It is best to stay in the hospital one night after the operation. More limited operations can be done as an outpatient surgery. The day after the operation one can do daily activities. The return to work can take an average of 15 days. It should be actively protected from the sun for 6 weeks.
- The results of facelift surgery are persistent, and some patients may protect this effect for the rest of their lives.
