Wondering What Facelift, Neck Lift and Lip lift Are Really?
Facelift, Neck Lift and Lip Lift Surgeries
The face and neck area can have a saggy look for various reasons. Aging, gaining and losing weight in a short time, pregnancy or hormonal changes can change the appearance of the face, neck and lips. Today, it is possible to correct the saggy look around the face and give it a younger look. Facelift, neck lift and lip lift surgeries will help individuals to have firmer and tighter skin.
In most cases, the skin will lose its elasticity which will cause wrinkles and a saggy look. The advanced cosmetic surgery area can find a solution to these problems by removing excess skin. Once the excess skin is removed or tightened with special threads, it is possible to achieve a tighter feeling. At this point, choosing the right cosmetic surgeon can make a huge difference. A well-trained and skilled cosmetic surgeon can combine these three procedures and create an even look on the entire face and neck area.
What Is Facelift Surgery?
Facelift surgery is all about making the face look tighter and firmer. The weight change or aging can cause the skin to become saggy and lose its elasticity. In this case, the individual would have a tired and aged look which causes decreased self-esteem.
In facelift surgery, the surgeon lifts up the saggy skin around the cheek area for smoother skin. Also, the skin will be pulled back to hide the scars of the surgery. Generally, the facelift is performed to correct the form of the jawline and the neck area. The skin around the jaw is pulled up with special threads. These threads are then hidden behind the ear or near the hairline to make the surgery scars invisible.

What Is Neck Lift Surgery?
Similar to facelift surgery, neck lift surgery aims to create a tighter and smoother look around the neck area. Also, this surgery can be combined with liposuction to eliminate the double chin look. In the neck lift surgery, the surgeon will remove the excess fat in the neck area and pull the excess skin up.
The flabby skin around the neck will become tighter and the threads used for pulling up the skin will be hidden. The surgery scar is often hidden behind the ear or near the hairline. This way the patients do not see the sutures or the suture scarring due to the operation.

What Is Lip Lift Surgery?
Lip lift surgery is preferred to give the upper lip a better and more attractive shape. Some people have smaller upper lips which might lead to an older or a harsher look. By decreasing the distance between the upper lip and the nose which is called the philtrum, the lip has a more curvy and fuller look.
Lip lift procedures can be preferred on their own or combined with other procedures. For example, it is possible to lift the upper lip and fill the lower lip at the same time to achieve a fuller look. The lip lift operation is a permanent procedure which cannot be achieved with lip fillers.
How Are Facelifts, Neck Lifts and Lip Lifts Performed?
Facelifts, neck lifts and lip lifts can be performed under general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia depending on the scope of the surgery. All of these procedures are performed in health clinics or hospitals by trained and expert surgeons. The entire process is managed by professional teams consisting of surgeons, nurses and other staff to ensure a safe and reliable procedure experience.
The facelift and neck lift procedures require removing the excess skin around the jaw and the neck area. Then, the skin is pulled up to give the jaw and neck area a firmer and smoother look. For the lip lift surgery, the top part of the upper lip is pulled up to decrease the distance between the nose and the lip. While doing that, the top part of the lip is also shaped to achieve a fuller upper lip.
How Long Will Facelift, Neck Lift and Lip Lift Recovery Will Take?
In general, the recovery after a facelift, neck lift or lip lift surgery takes between 2 to 4 weeks. However, if these procedures are combined with other cosmetic procedures, the recovery can take a longer time. The patients will immediately see the results of the procedure. Further, the results will get better and the full results will be visible 2-3 months after the operation.
In these operations, patients are not hospitalized. This means patients do not need to stay in the hospital and go back to their homes or hotel after the procedure. Also, a couple of days will be enough to go back to daily routines. However, the patients must listen to the recommendations of the surgeon for the best recovery.
