Age, lifestyle, stress, poor diet, air pollution, poor skin care, gravity and facial expressions lead to droopy eyebrows and eyelids, formation of under-eye bags, dark circles, and deep lines in the mouth and nose areas, droopy cheeks, prominent jowl, as well as deterioration of the facial structure. ‘Face Lift’, one of the Aesthetic and Plastic surgeries, involves the removal of the excess sagging skin by means of an incision made at the junction of the ear and cheek, or on the line beginning from behind the ear and extending towards the sideburn area if deemed necessary. In this way, the face gains a new form. Since incisions are sutured with special techniques, scars are unnoticeable.
Your operation will be done under general anesthesia at our hospital. It takes 3 to 5 hours on the average, and you need to stay in the hospital overnight.
You may have mild pains in the early postoperative period but they are easily managed with prescribed painkillers. There may be a general edema, bruising, and the feeling of numbness and tension in the face. These disappear spontaneously within 7 to10 days. A head bandage is used that can be removed within 2 to 3 days.
