How is Face Lift (Rhytidectomy) Surgery Performed?

The surgical techniques and additional procedures to be preferred in Turkey during facelift surgery may differ according to the patient’s age, skin structure, degree of ageing and the position of the facial bones. Facelift surgery is performed as follows;

During the facelift operation, incisions are usually made starting from the hairline, continuing behind the ear and ending in the lower part of the head.

Subcutaneous tissues and muscles are tightened.

During this operation, it is aimed to repair the sagging in the deep subcutaneous tissues, and then the excess skin is removed and the incisions are closed.

If the patient has too much sagging in the neck, an additional incision may be needed under the chin.

  • If the patient has problems such as fat accumulation under the chin, sagging skin and loosening of the neck skin, neck lift operations and face lift operations can be applied at the same time.

How to Prepare for Face Lift Operation?

History of Disease; Analyses are made regarding past and present disease history, previous surgeries and complications arising from earlier surgeries, smoking, and drug or alcohol use.

Drug check; The patient should tell the doctor the name and dosage of all medications that need to be used regularly, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter drugs, herbal remedies, vitamins, and other dietary supplements.

Facial Examination; The plastic surgeon takes pictures of the face from many angles. At the same time, the bone structure of the face, the shape of the face, the distribution of fat percentages on the face, and the quality of the skin are analysed. A decision whether or not the facelift operation will be performed will be made after the tests.
