Face Lift Surgery
It is quite normal for the skin on the face to loosen and sag as we age. Over time, these saggings cause wrinkles. Face Lift Surgery is the most effective surgical treatment for these sagging and wrinkles on the sides of the chin, neck, cheeks, and temples.
At What Age Should Face Lift Surgery Be Performed?
Facelift surgery is performed in two stages. It is a midface lift and a classical full face lift. This circumstance is determined by the individual’s needs.
When examining the average age of people who require a full facelift, we can conclude that the majority of patients are over the age of 50. Beginning at the age of 40, midface lifts can be performed.
Who Can Have Face Lift Surgery?
Those who desire a facelift should first articulate their expectations clearly. In e-consultations and face-to-face meetings, she should describe his complaints and dissatisfying facial characteristics. The heard complaints are evaluated, and the patient is informed of the surgery’s specifics.
How is Face Lift Surgery Performed?

The operation is carried out under general anesthesia.
Facelift surgery can take between four and seven hours.

Risks and Complications of Face Lift Surgery
As with any surgical procedure, facelift surgery carries certain risks. Before these risks can be mitigated, the patient must take precautions against them. Before and after surgery, the patient must meet all requirements. Particularly, smoking and other similar habits should be discontinued at least three weeks prior to surgery. Smoking is detrimental to facelift surgery. This hinders wound healing. It decreases the seam welding speed. It heightens the likelihood of bleeding. It has a negative effect on anesthesia.
Choosing a surgeon for facelift surgery is essential. Choosing an experienced facial aesthetics specialist will reduce the risks involved.
Bleeding, infection, injury to the muscles and nerves, circulation disorders in the tissue, suture reactions, and scar separation are potential complications of facelift surgery. These complications are minimized by the preference of an experienced physician and the patient’s thorough pre-operative preparation.
Price of Face Lift Surgery

Additionally, the selection of the surgeon affects the cost of facelift surgery. The experience, skill, and education of the surgeon who will perform the facelift are crucial.
