How is Facelift Surgery Done in Turkey
Skilled surgeons usually prefer to combine a facelift with an eyelid lift. The surgery is performed through an incision that starts from the hairline above and in front of the ear (temporal region), extends downward until it reaches under the ear and then goes up behind the ear and ends at the hair behind the ear.
The surgeon then lifts the skin and fat tissue from the muscle and connective tissue as much as is necessary to correct the problem of sagging skin, and the skin is pulled back and up and the excess tissue is removed. Finally, the wound is closed with stitches and cosmetic sutures that dissolve automatically with the skin. Some surgeons prefer to leave a special tube in the wounds to drain fluids according to each case.

After applying general anesthesia to the body, the surgery is performed through an incision that starts from the hairline above and in front of the ear (temporal region), extends downward until it reaches under the ear and then goes up behind the ear and ends at the hair behind the ear. The surgeon then lifts the skin and fat tissue from the muscle and connective tissue as much as is necessary to correct the problem of sagging skin, and the skin is pulled back and up and the excess tissue is removed. Finally, the wound is closed with stitches and cosmetic sutures that dissolve automatically with the skin.

Facelift techniques in Turkey Istanbul
Facelift with Botox
Botox is used in several fields, including cosmetic, therapeutic and mixed at the same time. Botox is used to get rid of superficial and light wrinkles in areas of the face such as the forehead and the edges of the eyes. It is also sometimes used in the neck or neck area to get rid of wrinkles and get a tight palate. This technique is called the Nefertiti technique. The results of a Botox session last about 4-6 months.
Facelift with Laser
Laser facelift has become the best alternative after it was previously an unpopular option among the cosmetic options due to the high cost. The idea of laser to tighten the face depends on emitting rays to stimulate the cells of the face and skin to produce collagen to appear more radiant and youthful. A laser facelift session takes about 30-45 minutes. The session must be repeated for the longevity of the results.
The face-lift technique with threads does not suit complex sagging, but only minor and medium-degree wrinkles. Simply, the idea of a face-lift with threads is based on tightening the visible sagging on the skin with medical threads, whose results are considered medium-term. The duration of the continuity of the results varies according to the type of threads used. In the case of using normal quality threads, the results last about 2 years as a maximum. As for the high-quality threads, the results last about 5 years. The patient can repeat the process after the appearance of the flabbiness again. As for the anesthesia used during the operation, it is local.
HIFU technology is based on shining high-intensity focused ultrasound waves on sagging skin and wrinkles. These waves enter the depths of the skin, causing it to tighten itself in order to restore its elasticity and cohesion, which stimulates the skin to produce collagen, which in turn improves the appearance of the skin. The result of the HIFU face-lift technique lasts for about a year, and the session takes about 30-45 minutes to complete.
In some cases, a person may not need a full face lift, and may use a medium or mini facelift, and this happens by making a small incision in the lower eyelid area and in rare cases from inside the mouth through which the cheek muscles are raised as a result of sagging or weight loss Or aging to restore the perfect appearance of the cheeks. The mini facelift is performed under the influence of general anesthesia and usually takes about two hours on average.
Surgical face-lift is one of the most common plastic surgeries and is used in advanced cases where the non-surgical techniques we mentioned cannot treat facial wrinkles. It is considered a radical solution to get rid of a sagging face.
