Face lift surgery is the surgery that creates the biggest change among all aesthetic surgeries. If you look in the mirror and you see yourself older than you feel and want to give yourself a big gift, face lift surgery will be the right option for you.
Several different methods are applied in face lift surgeries. In the selection of the method, the patient's health status, smoking, age, sex, degree of aging of his face, condition of his skin and structure of the facial bones play an important role. Therefore, almost different procedures can be planned for each patient. In addition, the width of the surgery can be decided according to the degree of aging and sagging of the patient's face. In some patients, eyebrow lifting, eyelid, jaw aesthetics and neck aesthetics can also be added to face lift surgery.
So what are the objectives of the surgery?
Pitting and wrinkles under the eyes, jaw line that is deteriorated due to the tissues hanging down the cheeks, i.e. towards the chin, lubrication and sagging in the neck are the target areas of face lift surgery.
Classical face lift techniques are preferred in patients with a lot of skin wrinkles and sagging. In this technique, an incision is made that starts from the favorite area of the patient and continues first to the front of the ear and then to the back of the ear. The success of this surgery lies not in the skin, but in the stretching of the tissues in the skin. No tension should be left on the skin. Otherwise, during healing, the skin is very stretched and leaves a bad scar. However, thanks to the suspension of deep tissues, it is possible to achieve long-lasting lasting results.
Another method of face lift is the technique called endoscope, which is performed with surgical cameras with a thickness of 4mm. In this technique, deep tissues are stretched up and detected by small incisions made in the scalp. Patients with a lot of sagging on the face, not too much deterioration of the jawline and low skin wrinkles are more suitable patients for endoscopic face lifts.
