Facelift for a younger face
The effects of sun, stress and ageing manifest themselves in different degrees in the shape and texture of our faces. The most common treatment against sagging skin and deep wrinkles is a facelift.
In this procedure surgeon restores the skin and soft tissue to a more youthful appearance. Procedure tightens lost muscles under the skin and models face contour and necklines. Lifting is often combined with other facial rejuvenations procedures e.g. eyelift, browlift and lipostructure.
During a personal consultation our specialists will thoroughly discuss with your expectations for surgery. He will examine your face's skin, soft tissue and bone structure and will advise you concerning the method that suits you best.
We differentiate between four kinds of facelifting procedures:
- Mini Facelift
- SMAS Facelift
- Mid Facelift
- Bio Facelift
Depending on the kind of procedure you and our specialist decide to perform, a local or general anaesthesia is necessary. Normally the lifting is performed through fine inconspicuously incisions beyond the hairline or within the natural contours of your ears. In exceptional cases we operate through small incisions below the chin.
During lifting procedure muscles and deep tissue are tightened, fat is sculpted and excess skin is removed to restore your face to a more juvenescent shape and treat the creases that distort the natural lines of your face. Modern operation techniques assure a natural looking result.
Operation takes between one and five hours and is performed inpatient. Following surgery you will get a special bandage to support healing process. Swelling and bruising are quite normal and generally abates after two weeks. Small drainages will be removed in the first two days after surgery. Stitches are taken out four to seven days following treatment. You should plan ten to fourteen days for convalescence. Your sport activities should rest for three weeks and please avoid excessive and exposed sunbathes.
