The face and the neck, the musculoskeletal system weakens which starts to form deep skin wrinkles. In the area of the lower jaw and throat, a double-chin begins to form. This is where loose skin is most apparent. The neck and face muscles weaken after the age of 35. With the help of surgery, a younger look is restored thanks to correcting such manifestations. Facial surgery can also be accompanies by eyelid surgery. If the eyelids are drooping, we first recommend facial surgery then followed by eyelid surgery. With eyelids that are not drooping so much it is possible to carry out eyelid surgery as well as a face-lift at once. As part of a face-lift, it is also possible to suck out excess fat from the chin.
How is the procedure carried out?
The surgery is carried out under analgosedation or general anesthesia. The main goal is to strengthen the musculoskeletal structures in the face and lower jaw area, with the excess skin being removed in the process. In modern days, the old classic incision is being phased out. It began prior to the earlobe, then went around the earlobe and then continued behind the ear into the hairy part of the scalp. We recommend using a new method and discretely hide the incision inside the ear. The skin is first separated from the subcutaneous layers. Then, the musculoskeletal system is adjusted and then excess skin removed in the process. Then the tissue is stitched together using internal sutures. To speed up healing, to limit swelling and to lower the pain, we use fibrin glue. The entire procedure lasts approximately 2 hours.
How long does recovery take?
Following surgery, a period of one week is required. Between the 4th and 5th day, the bandaging is removed. Thanks to a special material used for the stitching, the sutures break up themselves. After surgery, the face can appear slightly swollen but does not hurt. A tension in the skin is sometimes observed for several weeks following surgery as well as a lowered sense of sensitivity. The scars lighten up within three months. Following surgery, the younger appearance will be visible for more than 10 years and the effects will last for 15 years or more.
