The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia with pre-operation preparation (anticoagulant drugs, sedatives – before the operation). The client comes to the clinic on the day of the operation. We do not shave or cut the hair during the operation. The facelift can be accompanied by blepharoplasty, lips correction and wrinkle reduction, brow lift with threadlifts and alike.
The operation takes approximately 3 and more hours – depending on the extent. Healing of the tissue after the facelift takes 2 months and more.
After the operation the client has a dressing around the head for 1-3 days. Once the dressing is off, the hair can be washed and the patient gets an elastic cover to wear at night for 2-3 weeks. The painfulness is individual (similar to the pain after resection of teeth, mostly the first 3-5 days). The recovery requires 10-14 days of strict resting, no exercise, sleeping with elevated head.

With age the quality of the skin, subcutaneous, subcutaneous fat, subcutaneous ligaments, muscles decreases. The jaws can atrophy which results in dropped eye brows, sagging face and neck, loose skin on the eye lids, puffy bags under the eyes, deeper nasal labial lines, wrinkles around the lips and eyes, as well as on the neck. The skin loses its elasticity and collagen located between the skin and muscle fascia of face muscles, which causes the folds around the mouth and hanging skin around the jawline, dropping eye brows. Surgical lifting removes the drop of the eye brows, face and upper third of the neck in a natural way. Without the mask-like look of the face, with preserved natural mimics of the face. It also diminishes aesthetic disharmonies of the face that came with age.
