Face Lift Surgery

The eyelid is one of the first sagging and wrinkled areas, the first lines show themselves in this area because of the abundant facial expressions and thin skin structure. Excess skin, fat bags are removed with eyelid operation and Laser can be applied at the same time. When face lift “face lift” and neck lift are performed for wrinkles and sagging on the face, the scars remain behind the ear.

As in all aesthetic surgeries, it is essential not to have a health problem and to have realistic expectations. It is important to be psychologically stable and to understand that the results that can be achieved with a facelift attempt may be limited. There is no ideal template drawn for the entire face. The aim is to provide a better facial appearance. Skin structure, ethnic characteristics, skin elasticity, facial bone structure and a realistic approach should be discussed before surgery. This attempt can be done in the eighties, sometimes even in the thirties.

Facelift surgeries cannot stop aging or turn the clock back. Facelifting will help you look better, healthier and younger.

Operation Process

Operations That Can Be Planned Together

Before deciding on facelift surgery, you can discuss with your plastic surgeon whether additional interventions are required on your neck and/or jaw area along with facial surgery.

Preoperative Examination and Interview

  • It is very important that you choose a specialist and experienced plastic surgeon. In the first examination, your plastic surgeon will evaluate your facial areas separately and determine your skin structure, skin color and elastic properties. The photos to be taken will help your plastic surgeon work on them later. Your risk factors such as high blood pressure, smoking habit, susceptibility to scarring, clotting features will be questioned. Your Aesthetic Surgeon will ask about your medical history and try to have an idea about your mental and psychological structure. When you decide on the surgery and decide on the techniques to be applied together with your plastic surgeon, you will be informed about the anesthesia technique, other additional interventions, the risks and risks of the surgery, the hospital where it will be performed and the budget.

Operation Process

The surgical incisions start from the temple area, are made in front of the ear and hidden inside the ear canal, under the earlobe and towards the scalp behind the ear. After your plastic surgeon performs the stretching procedures for the muscle and connective tissues under the skin, he takes the excess fat, stretches the skin and removes the excess overflowing from the incision lines. Traces will be hidden within the natural facial lines.

After the excess skin is removed, the incisions are closed with fine and elegant sutures. It is not necessary to shorten or shave the hair during the surgery. The intervention is normally completed in 3 to 5 hours. At the end of the surgery, a light pressure dressing and dressing is applied.


Although a slight pain may occur after the surgery, this can be controlled with oral painkillers. Some swelling and bruising is normal and can be minimized with cold compresses. Pressure dressings and dressings are opened the day after the surgery. Your plastic surgeon will advise you to keep your head elevated, limit your activities, and ask you to report any complaints.
