With aging and the effect of gravity, people experience loss of elasticity in the cutaneous and loss of volume in the subcutaneous tissues of the face. As a result, drooping and sagging are seen in these areas. Facelift surgery comes into play when this situation starts to bother the patient. The aim of facelift surgery is not to change the shape of the face or expression of the patient, but
to achieve a younger and livelier look. In facelift surgery, as in other aesthetic surgeries, it is essential to make a personalized plan. Within said plan, the facelift surgery can be combined with other procedures that the patient may need.
Sagging in the neck area is generally associated with the effects of aging, genetics and rapid weight gain and loss. Since the face is a whole, and the neck area is an inseparable part of this integrity, if there are concerns, planning a facelift combined with a neck lift allows us to achieve a much more satisfactory result.
For this surgery, the incisions will be hidden in the face’s natural contours and between the hair. After the sagging of the subcutaneous tissues in the midface and jawline is corrected, the excess skin is removed using these same incisions. If there is laxation in the neck muscles, this issue is also treated during the surgery.
Individuals experiencing the following complaints can seek facelift surgery:
- Sagging skin on the face
- Deep wrinkles around the mouth corners and cheeks
- Facial volume loss
- Sagging and excess fat in the chin and neck area
- Sagging, and loss of shape in the neck
- Overall tired appearance
