Although the facelift surgery does not have a certain limited age, it is performed on patients over 40 years of age who have tissue accumulation as a result of sagging under the chin and around the upper lip. Facelift surgery, performed under local anesthesia, aims to tighten and rejuvenate the skin in the facial area.
Laser liposuction/VASER application is beneficial in cases of minimal sagging. However, if you have severe sagging and excess skin, both liposuction and skin removal are necessary.
After face lifting surgery, the patient is followed up for 1 day in the hospital. It is advised to use a face mask for the first 2-3 days. Swelling and edema in the face will be gone within 7-10 days. It is recommended not to smoke before the surgery.
