Mını Facelıft

Unlike the usual full facelift, it is the process of hanging the skin and connective tissues sagging with incisions made in front of and behind the ear for patients who do not have severe facial deformation and who want rapid healing and do not want profound change.

The procedure can be performed with local anaesthesia, and you can rest at home on the same day.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1
How is the post-mini-face lift process?

After the mini facelift procedure, a coarse suppressive dressing is applied on the first day, and mild dressing is applied on the next three days; mild oedema and bruising are expected for the first 2-3 days; after the third day, it is possible to return to social life in a controlled manner.

2
Is there a scar on a mini-facelift?

At the point of folding the front of the ear and behind the ear, there will be a scar that will fade over time.

3
Who are the best candidates for a mini facelift?

Patients who do not want continuous procedures such as filling and botox and who are young for full facelift surgery, and who do not have excessive skin sagging are the best candidates.

Face Lift &Neck Lift

Sagging of the face and neck, accumulating skin in the jaw corners cannot be prevented as the age increases. The most effective way to turn back time is facial and neck lift aesthetics. It is done with many different techniques; although each technique has advantages, the best method is applied individually.

It is generally combined with fat injection. Facelift surgeries can preferably be performed under local anaesthesia.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQs)

1
What is considered before face-neck lift surgery?

In general, as before all surgeries, blood thinners should be discontinued three weeks in advance in consultation with the anesthesiologist; if there are additional diseases-allergies, etc., our anesthesiologist should be informed. Smoking cessation at least six weeks before surgery is essential for facelift surgery. This is the surgical procedure where smoking affects the surgical process and wound healing the most.

2
What is face&neck lift surgery in general?

With age, the facial skin sags and accumulates in the jaw’s corners due to deformations or genetic factors. With the sliding membranes under the loose neck skin, the subcutaneous membrane and ligament structures are restored, and excess skin is removed with incisions made in the anterior and posterior ear and hairline. Face and neck lift surgery is one of the surgeries with the best results. The biggest mistake here is to expect an increase in skin quality. It should not be forgotten that this surgery is a stretching surgery; skin renewal is a combined procedure performed entirely after this surgery. In general, we perform face and neck lift surgeries together with a holistic approach.

3
Is there an age limit?

In general, it is a surgery performed more after the age of 40s, depending on the person’s face deformation. Non-surgical methods are preferred in earlier periods.

4
In which period is it recommended to do it?

When is the right time? The preferred period is autumn and winter, where cold weather and sun effects are low. It can also be done on summer days by taking precautions.

5
Will there be a scar?

As with any surgery, there will be scars in this surgery, but this scar is hidden in anatomical folding points contrary to popular belief. The anterior and posterior ear scars heal very well; the scars hidden in front of the scalp become less evident over time. It should be kept in mind that scarring depends entirely on the patient’s skin quality, genetic factors, external factors ( smoking – sun, etc.). Special creams are recommended to prevent scars after facelift surgery.

6
Which anaesthesia method is preferred for the procedure, and how is the postoperative process?

Face and neck lift surgeries can generally be performed under local anaesthesia + sedation or general anaesthesia, depending on the patient’s preference. Patients are preferably kept under observation for one night after local anaesthesia and for at least two nights after general anaesthesia. There will be special pressure dressings and drains for the first 2-3 days. Significant oedema and bruising are inevitable in the first ten days. After opening the first dressings, the hair can be washed. There will be daily dressings for the first two weeks, during which thin face corsets are worn. After two weeks, special scar prevention creams are applied.

7
When to return to social life?

Rest at home is generally recommended for the first five days after facelift surgery; it is essential not to increase blood pressure and avoid external factors. Rest is generally recommended for the first three weeks, and you can return to social life after this process.

8
When will the final result be seen?

Unlike other surgeries, tissues’ adaptation takes longer in facial surgeries, so oedema and swelling are evident in the first month, but healing continues for 6-12 months. The skin, which is felt tense in the first postoperative period, relaxes slightly and is felt more comfortable after the first healing.

9
What should I pay attention to?

After surgery, smoking, all movements that will increase blood pressure, and unhealthy meals should be avoided. Significantly excessive massage, early exposure to heat will damage healing tissues. After facelift surgery, it is essential to combine post-healing skin healing procedures. Especially in the high oxygen environment, keeping the head high and less salty diets are recommended for recovery.
