Who are good candidates for this surgery?
The ideal candidates for facelift surgery are those whose face and neck skin has begun to sag but whose skin has not yet lost its elasticity, and who have no other health problems.This surgery is usually performed on men and women over the age of 40.However, this type of surgery can be performed as fully or limited at an earlier age for structural and genetic reasons.During face lift surgery, nose and eyelid aesthetic, forehead correction, eyebrow lifting operations can be added to make the face look more beautiful and younger.Injection of fillers for fine wrinkles (oil, hyaluronic acid etc.) or peeling (mechanical, chemical, laser) and Botox for wrinkles can be done.

Surgery is performed in hospital conditions, under the supervision of anesthesiologist, in the operating room. As with general anesthesia, intravenous sedation (accompanied by sedative drugs) can also be done with local anesthesia.Such operations may take 3-10 hours depending on the technique and the procedures.It is possible to go home on the same day, but it is usually convenient to stay in hospital for 1 night.Additional procedures (nose,eyelid, etc.) can be done in the same session. Face lift surgery is not without marks.However, these marks are not apparent because they are hidden.The scars are hidden in the scalp in the temple area, in front of and behind the ears.If the fat under the chin is removed, a mark of 3-5 mm remains under the chin, and if the eyelid and forehead stretching are added, additional scars remain on the eyelids and scalp.However, these marks on the face are mostly not obvious and can be hidden.
Early period after surgery usually passes on at ease.There may be a general feeling of swelling and bruising, numbness and tension on the face.During surgery, facial nerves may be slightly affected by anesthesia, so there may be slight asymmetries in the face.They spontaneously pass within 3-5 days.A cold pad is applied to the head wrap and cheeks, leaving eyes, nose and mouth open.In order to prevent the accumulation of blood in the tissue, silicone tubes called drain can be placed. Drains are removed within 2 days at the latest.The wrap is fully opened after 2-3 days.General control and dressing change is made. Hair can be washed during this period. If the stitches are not of the melting type, they are removed after 5-7 days.

If the operation is performed according to the technique, it gives good results.Rarely, second corrections may be necessary.From the 2nd postoperative day, the patient can stand up and do their work at home.The patient can return to work after a week with the swelling gone, put on makeup.It is recommended to avoid heavy exercises and excessive sunlight and to protect against external impacts for 2 months.The new shape of the face and neck skin endures accordingly the person’s structure and environmental conditions, sometimes 5-10 years and sometimes life-long.
