What Is Face Lift Surgery?

As we age, our skin loses its elasticity due to environmental factors and unwanted lines, folds and sagging occur. Facelift surgery is a surgical procedure that is applied to correct this aesthetic defect and can achieve very successful and long-lasting results.

Facelift surgeries generally involve removing excess skin and tightening tissues. This results in a firmer, smoother skin appearance.

Op.Dr. Sultan YALÇIN aims to give male and female patients the youthful appearance they desire by using an artistic approach in every facelift surgery.

How Is Face Lift Surgery Performed?

The technique used in facelift surgery is determined in accordance with the anatomy and aesthetic goals of each patient. However, the procedures usually involve lifting tissues, tightening the underlying muscles, removing excess skin, and stretching and re-covering the remaining skin to give your face a more youthful appearance.

Smokers should stop using tobacco products at least 3-4 weeks before surgery. It is also necessary to stop taking anti-inflammatory and blood thinners about a week before facelift surgery. You can continue with normal exercise and daily routines until the time of your surgery.

Facelift surgery is an operation performed under general anesthesia. First of all, a detailed examination is performed and the patient decides which procedures will be applied. Afterwards, a series of tests are performed together with blood tests and it is examined whether there is an obstacle to the operation.

Although facelift surgery depends on the skin structure of the patient, it usually takes between 3 and 5 hours.

Patients who have facelift surgery stay under observation in the hospital for 1 night and are discharged the next day if their health is good.

Although it depends on the technique used during facelift surgery and the age of the patient; generally speaking;

  • The appearance on the face returns to normal within 7-10 days,
  • Bruising and swelling disappear in 10-15 days,
  • After 1 month, the feeling of tension on the face goes away,
  • After 12 months, the cut areas become more indistinct.

Facelift procedures require long incisions. However, Op.Dr. Sultan YALÇIN is very adept at hiding these incision marks in the natural curves of the hairline and around the ears.

While the surgical scar looks red at first, it takes on skin color over time and becomes less obvious. In addition, after the surgery, a scar care program is applied to ensure that the healing is healthy and fast.
