What Is Face Lift Aesthetics?
Facelift aesthetic surgery, known as rhytidectomy in the medical field, is a surgical method in which wrinkles on the face and sagging are eliminated aesthetically by stretching and suspension methods.
Problems which occur in the face over time can be disturbing. Although it differs in intensity depending on genetic and environmental factors, it may be necessary to intervene when it becomes visible to everyone.
Due to the aging effects, wrinkles, age spots and sagging occur on our skin. An unhealthy diet, irregular sleep, inactivity, smoking, alcohol, stress accelerate the emergence of these problems.
Facial problems due to aging effects:
- Sagging and dropping of eyelids
- Deep wrinkles around eyes
- Under-eye bruises and bags
- Deep and prominent forehead lines
- Drooping eyebrows
- Deep lines around the nose
- Lines at the edge of lips
- Sagging of cheeks
- Sagging under the chin
- Wrinkles and sagging around the neck area
All of these problems can be corrected with facelift aesthetics. Facelift is applied in many clinics and hospitals in Istanbul, but you should contact a reliable and experienced aesthetic surgeon because it is an important operation. The best facelift surgeon in Istanbul is the most correct doctor for you. Everyone’s expectations and needs are different, the important thing is to find the doctor who can understand and realize these.
Why Is Facelift Performed?
Medical procedures other than aesthetic surgery are much more preferred until a certain time. Botox, fillers, radiofrequency, and laser devices are used in many clinics for facial problems that occur at an early age. However, after the age of 40 or even 50, problems progressing significantly in the face and even in the neck area cannot be corrected with simple procedures other than aesthetic surgeries. At this stage, facelift surgery is required. Especially skin loosening in the jawline and neck area, skin folds in front of the ear are disturbing. These problems can only be corrected by facelift.
Who Are Suitable for Facelift?
Wrinkles and sagging problems in the face and neck area can be seen in both women and men with aging. Gender does not matter; this surgery can be applied to anyone.
Facelift surgery is generally preferred by people over the age of 40. However, people who evaluate the genetic condition, skin structure, nutrition, and other factors well may not have problems until the age of 50. Aesthetic interventions that are made at an earlier period provide a more natural appearance. However, in some cases, this type of plastic surgery operation can be applied to younger people. Along with the facelift surgery, other aesthetic surgeries such as the nose, eyelid, forehead lift, eyebrow lift can also be combined.
What Are the Types of Facelift?
Although the application is the same there are two different types of facelift.
- Classic Facelift: As can be understood from its name, it is a comprehensive surgery that can be applied to the whole face and can even be combined with other aesthetic surgeries. It is applied by lifting the whole face skin and successful results are obtained.
- Mini Facelift: If there is not much loosening and sagging in the face or neck area, we prefer this type of facelift at earlier ages. This method is mostly preferred for a quicker recovery period, but your doctor’s decision is important while deciding on the facelift type.
For facelift aesthetics, you should stop taking medications and vitamins such as aspirin and vitamin E for a certain period recommended by your doctor before surgery, because they increase the bleeding risk during surgery. Do not consume herbal teas for a while. You should especially stay away from smoking and alcohol. Smoking slows down the healing process after facelift surgery. You should stop smoking at least 3 weeks before surgery.
Operation starts with a surgical incision starting from the scalp above ear and going down in front of ear and progressing until the scalp behind ear, and face skin is lifted. Sagging facial muscles and soft tissues are suspended with special stitches. The excess skin is removed. Therefore, skin sagging in the temples, cheeks and chin area is corrected.
Facelift surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Facelift can also be combined with eyelid aesthetics and neck lift aesthetics. For this reason, operation duration may be different for each person. Operations generally last for 4 to 7 hours.
There may be a general swelling and bruising on the face after facelift surgery. It is also natural to feel numbness and tightness. Some facial nerves can be affected by anesthesia, so there may be mild asymmetries on the face. This turns normal on its own within 3-5 days.
After facelift surgery, dressing is done on the whole face but only the eyes, nose and mouth stay open. These dressings are opened about 2-3 days later, when appropriate, during the postoperative controls. After some surgeries, a drain can be inserted to prevent fluid accumulation in the tissue. Drains are removed after 2 days at the latest. If dissolvable stitches are not used, they are removed within 1 week.
You can stand up and do your simple routine works at home since the 2nd day after operation. You can return to work after stitches are removed and swelling disappears.
You should avoid heavy exercises, intense sun lights and facial procedures for a few months after facelift operation.
What Are the Risks?
The possibility of serious bleeding after facelift aesthetics is very low. However, there may be a problem with small blood accumulation, which is called a hematoma. Therefore, it is definitely necessary to prevent fluid accumulation under the skin by using “drains”.
Infection is also a rare complication which might be seen after this operation. Problems are generally caused by smoking. If you are smoking and have not stopped at the recommended time or if you have immediately started smoking after the surgery, you may feel a loss of sense on the skin. During this surgery, the skin is raised as a thin later and it is assumed that internal blood circulation is sufficient to feed the skin. At this stage, smoking habits congest capillary vessels and destroys this assumption. If the skin does not receive enough blood circulation, it starts to get purple and black color starting near the ear where the blood reaches with the most difficulty. It means that recovery will be delayed in this area and there will be scars.
Numbness on the scalp and hair loss is seen so rarely. However, the shedding hair will grow again and sensation loss will disappear after a while.
Contrary to popular belief, facelift operations are not performed only for those aged 40-50 years and older. It can also be performed to people who experience problems in their faces at an early age.
Factors such as gravity, smoking, exposure to excessive sunlight, excessive weight gain, and loss cause aging on the face. Looking from the outside, a person’s face looks sagged and worn out. This situation changes according to the skin structure, living conditions, and genetic structure. All of these are treated with facelift surgery. In today’s conditions, these problems can occur even at the age of 30. Therefore, the evaluation is made according to the patient’s skin and tissues, not the age.

The plastic surgeon performing the procedure gently separates the skin and subcutaneous tissue from the underlying muscles and fascia, while avoiding damage to the vessels and nerves running in the operated area.
