Facial aesthetic surgery, the patient’s loosening or sagging facial skin is removed, and the appearance of a younger face is to gain. The surgery does not stop aging but rejuvenates the facial appearance. The aging time is returned, but continues to work. The surgical procedures in which facial aging is eliminated due to age and many other causes are the facial lift aesthetics. The aim of the face lift aesthetics is that the patient has a natural and young face.
Causes of Face Lifting
The face lifting aesthetics consists of cutting the abundant skin from the appropriate places and pulling back and forth from the sides of the face. As with every surgery, face lifting is also very important. One of the most important issues is the protection of the facial nerve (facial nerve) that moves the facial facial muscles. This nerve is divided into very thin branches on both sides of the cheek and lies under the skin.
Your general health condition is good and the operation is psychologically ready and realistic expectations about the results of the operation are required. If the patient has any alcohol, smoking and harmful substances, hypertension, cardiovascular and liver diseases, the patient is evaluated by a plastic surgeon. Surgical planning is made according to the severity of deformation on the face and neck of the patient, taking into account the skin texture, bone structure, amount and extent of lubrication, and the degree of sagging. Eyelid aesthetics can be performed with this surgery.
In addition, fat injections and forehead stretching can be added to this operation. Blood thinners such as aspirin, ginkobiloba and vitamin E should be discontinued at least one week in advance.
Age of Surgery
Average age of 40 years and over; Although it is under 40 years of age, it is a suitable operation for people who have sagging, fats and folds on the sides of the neck, face and lips.
Anesthesia Method and Duration
Surgery is performed under general anesthesia in a hospital environment. The operation time is between 2-4 hours. At the end of the operation, two drains are placed in the treated area. These drains are pulled after 24-36 hours. The patient comes out with a face-lift corset and is asked to wear this corset for a week.
On the sixth postoperative day, the sutures are removed, and the current edema begins. With a special massage method, new skin tissue is started to be dynamic. Pain can not be comfortable and can be easily controlled with pain medications. Infection and bruises in the first few days rapidly decrease and disappears within 2 weeks. It takes about 4-6 months for the skin to sit firmly on the face. While some operations require reoperation after 7 to 15 years, many patients do not require a second aesthetic.
Facial Esthetics Considerations After Surgery
The person must protect his face from physical factors. In the post-operative recovery phase, the stretched face should not be subjected to excessive movement.
If necessary, regular use of pain medication is required.
Do not choose clothes that can be worn by direct contact with your face.
It is absolutely necessary not to smoke for 1 month after the operation. Since the cigarette obstructs the capillaries in the body, the capillaries in the face affect the blood circulation and slow the healing process.
