Facelift Turkey - Face Lift Procedure - FlyHealth

Face is one of the most important parts of body. It reflects our personality; it shows all of our emotions. And over time those emotions, combined with effects of ageing, poor diet and lack of sleep, can cause our face to look old. Chin looses distinction from jaw line, heavy skin folds appear around your nose and mouth. Facelift is a plastic surgery aimed to reverse these signs of aging by tightening muscle, removing fat, and trimming excess skin, giving your face a fresher, youthful look.

Facelift Turkey can tighten the skin of your cheeks, resulting in improvement in nasolabial fold which is a crease that runs from your nose to your chin, curving around your mouth. In this procedure excess facial skin is removed to make the face appear much younger and more fresh. Facelift doesn’t improve all parts of face and therefore some additional procedures may be necessary for a perfect result, such as neck lift Turkey or blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery).

Recovery from facelift

Facelift aftercare

The healing process is as important as success of the surgery itself. The type of facelift—and type of incision used—can affect recovery time of surgery. However, of course, there’s a basic recovery timeline. When the anesthesia wears off, you may feel a bit nauseous or cold, but these feelings will typically subside quickly as the medication is flushed out of the body. Usually, patients will have bandages on their faces. Patients often experience swelling and discomfort, especially during the first day, but these symptoms can be alleviated with over-the-counter or prescription pain relief medication. As recovery progresses and swelling subsides, patients will be able to see the results and begin to enjoy a youthful, more alert facial appearance.

Good overall health

Facelift is a surgical procedure— and like any other surgery, you need to be in a healthy condition. Before undergoing facelift surgery, you must inform the surgeon of any pre-existing medical conditions well in advance. A facelift procedure requires major recovery, so it is essential that the patient be physically prepared for this invasive surgery.

Loose skin on the face

Having loose skin on the face could be a prerequisite for facelift surgery. Patients typically seek a facelift procedure to remove excess skin from the face or neck, tightening skin—and eliminate signs of ages seen in wrinkles simultaneously. The surgeon trims the loose skin during the procedure.

Facelift procedure

During this procedure, for the comfort of patients, they are given general anesthesia. Then surgeon makes an incision that starts in the temple area and circles around ears. The skin is gently lifted as the surgeon repositions and tightens the underlying muscle and connective tissue. Some fat might also be removed during this procedure, as well as excess skin.

After removing the excess skin, surgeon closes the incisions with fine sutures. The skin is then redraped over the face and the incision is sutured. The incision usually falls along the hairline or in a place where skin would naturally fold so that tiny scar is not visible after the surgery.

Types of facelift procedure

There are many different types of facelift in Turkey you can choose from according to your aesthetic goals and preferences regarding downtime and recovery, as well as your facial anatomy. The different types of facelifts are distinguished by the use of incision, number of tissue layers treated, the area of the face that is targeted—and the degree of surgery invasiveness.

Traditional full facelift

A traditional or full facelift is a major surgical procedure, which aims to tighten the skin. Known for its comprehensive results, a traditional full facelift can address common problems such as deep creases below the eyes, sagging around the cheeks, lines around the mouth, excess fat and skin under the chin and jowls. The treatment requires a longer incision because it targets a larger area of the face. The incision typically runs along the temple, around the ear, and down to the necks. Full facelifts can achieve more to eradicate dramatic signs of facial aging—hence they are very common among patients in their 50’s and 60’s.

Mid facelift

During a mid facelift procedure in Turkey, a plastic surgeon can lift and tighten the tissues before the eyes and around the cheeks. To achieve this, the doctor will make incisions—similar to those used in a full facelift but they will be deeper. This technique enables the surgeon to lift that muscles that are normally untouched by a full facelift technique. The plastic surgeon may also employ fat grafting or facial implants to improve facial contours—and to create more toned cheekbones. Because this procedure is not extensive enough to address all signs of aging, it’s often ideal for men and women in their 30’s and 40’s who are simply looking to rejuvenate their facial appearance. The surgeon may perform mini facelifts using endoscopic techniques

Lower facelift

As the name suggests, lower facelift procedure is designed to target the bottom third of the face. This procedure can be a great way to diminish jowls, reduce deep nasolabial folds, lift sagging corners of the mouth—and improve the appearance of the jaw. The incisions used in lower facelift are similar to other types of facelifts—where the surgeon creates incisions along the patient’s ears and hairline. Lower facelift in Turkey is suitable for patients of all ages who wish to reduce the signs of ages and restore a more youthful facial appearance.

Thread facelift “lunchtime lift”

For a more minimally invasive alternative to traditional facelifts, consider thread facelift. This procedure is a quick, non-invasive treatment that can be performed without anesthesia—and leaves no visible scars. During thread facelift, the plastic surgeon will create tiny stitches just below the skin to lift the underlying muscles. The treatment is most suitable for patients in their 30’s and 40’s who simply wish to make minor adjustments to their appearance.
