Facelift and Necklift
Face and neck lift surgery is a procedure that aims to naturally restore the youthful appearance of the face by lifting and tightening sagging facial tissues. The face is often the first part of the body to show signs of aging. Gravity and loss of volume cause the skin to sag and wrinkles to form. Although there is no way to prevent aging, the face and neck lift procedure can smooth one’s skin, tighten tissues and muscles, and remove excess fat. All this will help the person look and feel younger.
Application of Face and Neck Lift Procedures
The purpose of the facelift procedure is to improve problem areas such as loosened skin, wrinkles under the eyelids, wrinkles around the nose and mouth, and fat deposits. Necklift, on the other hand, aims to correct the appearance of loose skin and fat deposits on the chin and neck. Usually, both processes are applied together. Other methods such as facial implants or fillers may also be used simultaneously or shortly after to improve results.
Complications that may be seen during or after a Face and Neck Lift and the Recovery Process
- Face and neck lift procedure, like all other surgical procedures, carries the risk of various side effects and complications. Swelling and bruising may occur in the area after the procedure. Complications that can be seen after face and neck lifts are also infections, numbness, pain, hair loss in the incision areas, facial nerve damage, or fluid accumulation. However, the incidence of these complications is very low. For many patients, the final results such as a long-lasting youthful appearance after the procedure motivate them to decide on a face and neck lift.
- Recovery time for face and neck lifts is approximately 1 to 2 weeks. Dressings are removed the day after surgery and replaced with a soft elastic bandage to reduce swelling and protect the neckline. This bandage should be used for about two weeks.
- There is some bruising and swelling after the face and neck lift procedure, but in most cases, it is not noticeable after the first week. After the face and neck lift, the person should avoid strenuous exercises and weightlifting for two weeks.
Neck suspension procedures are painless. After face and neck lift procedures, patients complain of tension and pressure rather than pain. This will pass in a few days. It can be said that these procedures are generally painless.
Lower face and neck rejuvenation procedures are often performed as part of facial rejuvenation procedures. However, it can be performed alone in patients who do not have serious problems in the upper and mid-face areas. People who have piled on the edges of the chin, lubrication on the neck, and sagging skin on the neck are suitable candidates for these procedures. It is usually performed over the age of 40.
A face and neck lift is a surgical procedure that involves the surgical reshaping and repositioning fat, tissues, and muscles in the face, jaw, and neck. Neck lift surgery begins with an incision made in the front of the ear. The skin is redistributed by repositioning the excess fat and tissue and the excess skin is removed. The incisions typically heal in inconspicuous fine lines. This method is the best method for improving facial wrinkles and sagging appearance. Depending on the age and health of the person, the procedure may be performed as an outpatient or may require an overnight hospital stay.
