Face Lift Surgery

Face Lift Surgery with Op.Dr Serkan Balta
What is Face Lift Surgery?
Facelift (facelift, rhytidectomy) is a surgical method that removes sagging and wrinkles due to aging by stretching and hanging. However, in recent years, all interventions related to facial aging have begun to be referred to under the name of facial rejuvenation.

As a person gets older, the facial skin sags, wrinkles, and various spots and irregularities occur on it due to the effects of years, sun rays, daily stresses and other factors (smoking, alcohol, malnutrition). An elderly percentage; There is an image with prominent forehead lines, drooping eyebrows, drooping eyelids, bags and lines under the eyes, deep lines in the mouth-nose area, sagging cheeks, chin contours lost, neck lubrication and skin curtains. The skin has lost its vitality, sunspots and other moles have appeared, thinned and wrinkled.

Face lift surgery, which is one of the Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery operations, is also referred to as "face lift" or "rhytidectomy" with English idioms. The aim of facelift surgery is for the patient to have a natural and young face. This surgery does not stop aging, but provides a long-term (at least 5-10 years depending on various factors) rejuvenation in the facial image. With face lift-renewal surgeries, sagging and irregularities in the forehead, face and neck skin are eliminated; Excess fat tissue on the cheek and neck is removed, facial fascia and fat tissues are pulled and hung in their anatomical places, facial tissues are reinforced, eyelids are corrected when necessary, and other complementary interventions can be performed (such as skin peeling, filling and botox).

Who Is It Suitable For?

The ideal candidates for facelift surgery are those whose face and neck skin has begun to sag, but their skin has not yet lost its elasticity and has no other health problems. This surgery is usually applied to men and women over the age of 40. However, due to structural and genetic reasons, this type of surgery can be performed in full or in a limited manner at earlier ages. During face lift surgery, nose and eyelid aesthetics, forehead correction, eyebrow lifting operations can also be added to make the face look more beautiful and younger. Injection of fillers (oil, hyaluronic acid, etc.) or peeling (mechanical, chemical, laser) for fine wrinkles and botox for wrinkles can be done.
