Facelift Turkey

Rhytidectomy, more commonly known as a facelift, is a type of surgery that helps to reduce visible signs of ageing in the face and neck, which typically involves lifting and tightening the skin and muscles of the face to regain a more youthful appearance. This operation can help improve sagging skin, the appearance of your jowls, and smooth out deep wrinkles.

How to prepare for Face Lift Surgery?

Before Face Lift Surgery you will have a full medical examination where the surgeon will inspect your face, take photographs for medical history, and discuss the pre-operative process for medical tests and any possible changes to the current medication you take.

During the consultation with the doctor it is advised to take some example photos with you to show them what you are trying to achieve and discuss your current lifestyle habits, substance use, and any additional surgeries you may require with your face lift so they can see if you are eligible for these treatments.

Below are some pre-operative tips you’re surgeon may give you:

Limit Alcohol intake and drink water frequently
Avoid taking anti-inflammatory drugs
Stop smoking before the surgery

Facelift Procedure

The surgeon will make a small incision above your hairline, close to the temples. This incision will extend down the front of your ear, before going right around your earlobe towards the back of your ear.

Then, they’ll make a small incision under your chin towards the edge of your jawline, before removing any surplus facial skin. After that, the remaining skin is pulled upwards and back in place before stitching it into its new position and may remove or redistribute any fat deposits. The surgery will take 3-4 hours for a facelift on its own.

Once the surgeons are happy with the tautness of your skin and any additional surgeries, they’ll bandage your face to reduce the amount of swelling and bruising.

Facelifts are often performed in conjunction with work on the other areas such as the eyelids, neck or forehead,facial liposuction, nose surgery, chin augmentation and eyelid surgery, so if you’re getting any of these procedures done, the surgeon will perform them at the same time.

Typically, it takes about 3 to 4 weeks to recover from facelift surgery and it could be 5-6 weeks before you return to work to ensure you have plenty of time to rest and recuperate.

During the recovery period, you should avoid showering and getting the bandages wet for at least the first two to three days. It is advised to avoid doing any exercise or strenuous activity for at least two weeks after your surgery, and you won’t be able to drive for several days after surgery (your surgeon will advise exactly how long).
