Facial aesthetic surgery, the patient's loosening or sagging facial skin is taken to remove the younger face appearance is to give. The surgery does not stop aging but provides rejuvenation in your face image. The aging time is returned, but it continues to work. Surgical procedures that eliminate the signs of aging in the facial region due to aging and many reasons are the aesthetics of face lift. The purpose of the face lift aesthetic is to have a natural and young face.
Reasons for Face Lift
Aesthetics of the face lift consists of cutting the skin abundant as a result of aging and pulling it back-up from the sides of the face and re-stitching the excess parts. As in every surgery, face lifting has very important tips. One of the most important issues is the protection of the facial nerve (facial nerve) that moves facial mimic muscles. This nerve is divided into very thin branches in both cheek regions and extends under the skin.
You need to have good general health and are psychologically ready for the operation and make realistic expectations about the results of the surgery. In the patient examination, information about the patient's alcohol, smoking and harmful substance habit, hypertension, cardiovascular and liver diseases are evaluated by the plastic surgeon. Operation planning is done by considering skin tissue, bone structure, amount and extent of fat, sagging degree according to the severity of deformation in the face and neck of the patient. Eyelid aesthetics can be performed with this surgery.
In addition, fat injections and operations such as forehead stretching may be added to this surgery. At least one week before the blood thinning drugs such as aspirin, ginkobiloba, vitamin e should be discontinued.
Age of Surgery
The average age of 40 and over; Although it is under 40 years of age, it is a suitable operation for people with sagging, fat and folding on the neck, face and lip edges.
Method and Duration of Anesthesia
Surgery in the hospital environment, is performed under general anesthesia. The operation time is between 2-4 hours. At the end of the operation, two drains are placed in the treated area. These drains are drawn after 24-36 hours. The patient comes out of the operation with a face lift belt and is asked to wear it for one week.
Sutures are taken on the sixth postoperative day, the current edema begins to pass. With a special massage method, new skin tissue is started to be dynamic. Pain can not be uncomfortable and can be easily controlled with pain relief medications. Swelling and bruises rapidly decrease within the first few days and disappear within 2 weeks. It takes about 4-6 months for the skin to sit fully on the face. While some operations require surgery again after 7 to 15 years, many patients do not require a second aesthetic.
Facial Aesthetics Points to Consider After Surgery
It is necessary to protect one's face from physical factors. During the postoperative recovery phase, the stretched face should not be exposed to excessive movement.
Regular pain medication is necessary if necessary.
Do not choose clothes that can be worn by direct contact with your face.
It is strictly forbidden to smoke for one month after the operation. Since smoking clogs the capillaries in the body, the capillary on the face affects the blood circulation and slows down the healing process.
What is the Classic Face Lift?
Face lift is the surgery that creates the biggest change among all aesthetic surgeries. Although for many years performed more frequently in recent years in Turkey was perceived as only an operation claimed by celebrities. Today's modern life and work life has accelerated compared to 50 years ago, people have lived in a more social life than in the past, increased working time, stress factors, increased sun exposure, decreased organic nutrition as a result of all these people become older the average human life span has also been extended.
Face lift surgery is performed in the hospital environment and under general anesthesia. In face lifting operations, facial tissue is strengthened, sagging tissues are removed and excess skin is removed. The face lift is very detailed. Cheeks, eye area, eyebrows, nose, forehead, neck and chin are considered as a whole. Depending on the region to be performed, the surgical operation takes about 4-5 hours.
Several different methods can be applied for face lift surgery. The choice of the surgical method is made by reviewing the patient's health status, age, sex, the degree of aging of the patient's face, the condition of the skin, and the characteristics of the facial anatomical structure. The extent of surgery is also determined according to the degree of aging and sagging of the patient.
As in all aesthetic surgery, face lift operations, each patient should be planned for a specific surgery. In face lifting surgeries, cuts extending from the front of your ear to the back of the ear are made and skin and subcutaneous tissues are stretched according to the degree of aging.
What is Midface Lift?
It is a face lift surgery using minimal incisions to remove sagging and deformations caused by aging in the middle face, jaw and neck areas. In this surgery, the incisions are stored in natural curves and in the hairline, so that no visible, visible marks remain. After this face lift operation performed with sedation without the need for general anesthesia, the person will return to his / her natural form 10 years ago and continue the aging process from there.
Mid-face Lift, which is usually done after the age of 30, the skin and subcutaneous tissue without stretching, the sagging tissues are lifted up deeply and the temple area is stretched. Middle Face Lift Surgery is performed by making incisions through mouth and scalp so that deep tissues are released and carried up with the help of special tools. The operation lasts for an average of 1.5-3 hours. After surgery, a younger appearance appears and the grooves on the rim disappear. Significant edema may be present in the first 24-48 hours postoperatively. Patients may return to their jobs 1 week after surgery.
What is Blepharoplasty Upper and Lower Eyelid?
Eyelid aesthetics or blepharoplasty is a set of surgical procedures performed by the plastic surgeon who is applied to lower and upper eyelids to remove sagging skin and excess muscle tissue and to stretch the tissues around the eyes.
As the age advances with the effect of gravity naturally sagging skin occurs. Parallel to this process, signs such as bagging in the eyelids, skin abundance, discoloration, relaxation and wrinkles appear. Factors such as exposure to sunlight, air pollution, irregular sleep, excessive smoking and alcohol use accelerate the aging process of the skin.
The skin normally has an elastic structure. However, as it ages, its elasticity gradually decreases. As a result of the loss of elasticity in the face skin, excess skin is first collected in the eyelids. Therefore, the first signs of aging appear in the eyelids. The changes in the eyelids due to old age cause a tired, dull and old look. Some of the signs of aging in the upper and lower eyelids are:
Bagging and discoloration under the eyes Diplodp
Lower upper eyelid
Wrinkles and sagging on eyelid skin
Crow's feet lines on the sides of the eye
A tired facial expression.
Skin abundance in the eyelids caused by the lower eyelid. This decrease can sometimes be too high to prevent vision. In this case, this condition should also be treated functionally. Occasionally, a decrease in eyebrows and forehead is accompanied by a low eyelid. In this case there is a worse aesthetic appearance.
For aesthetic or functional reasons, only the upper eyelid or lower eyelid can be applied to the eyelid or both can be applied together. Blepharoplasty is often performed with eyebrow lifting, forehead lifting and endoscopic midface surgery.
Eyelid aesthetics are mostly performed by individuals over 35 years of age. Because the signs of aging in the eyelids often begin to appear after these ages. However, it is possible for anyone in need of medical care to have it done at any age. Surgery cannot stop the aging of the eyelids; but it lasts for 7-8 years. After the operation, the tired facial expression is replaced with a lively and serene appearance.
Drugs such as aspirin and antibiotics should be discontinued at least 15 days before the procedure because of the increased risk of bleeding tendency during surgery. The use of cigarettes and other tobacco products should also be discontinued 2-3 weeks before, as it delays wound healing. Herbal supplements should not be taken in this process as this may cause unexpected effects.
Upper eyelid aesthetic or low eyelid surgery is the process of removing excess skin and muscle tissue in short. The incision is made from the fold line of the eyelid to prevent the surgical scar from appearing. It gives better cosmetic results when applied together with forehead lifting and eyebrow lifting operations.
Fat pads positioned on the cheekbones as a young person move downward with the effect of gravity as well as the aging process. This causes collapse under the lower eyelid and signs of aging in the form of deepening of the laughing lines on the rim.
The aesthetic procedure for this fat cushion is done endoscopically by hanging the cushions in place. This is done before any operation is done on the lower eyelid.
It may not be necessary to perform any operation on the lower eyelid after hanging the oil pads in place. The lower eyelid is re-evaluated to see if there is bagging and sagging. If these findings have not disappeared, lower eyelid surgery is performed. The surgical incision is made just under the eyelashes. The skin is removed and the fat packs are spread to the pit of the eye, the excess skin and muscle are cut off and the procedure is completed. If postoperative ocular collapse continues, intraocular oil injection may be required after recovery.
What Is Eyebrow Vine?
As with other facial soft tissues and skin, our eyebrows hang over time with the effect of gravity, aging and melting of the underlying soft tissues. This sagging can sometimes obscure even the field of view and give the person a tired, old, exhausted expression. These sags, especially seen in the outer corners of the eyebrows, are sometimes felt seriously in the inner and middle eyebrows.
It is a non-invasive, non-invasive, non-invasive, suture-free method for removing sagging that gives a tired expression on our eyebrows. In this method, with a permanent suture material, the eyebrows are hung under the skin from the outermost corner to a point behind the hairline. The sewing material used is invisible to the skin and cannot be understood.
With the aging of the soft tissues on the whole face along with the sagging process continues. Therefore, the appearance of the young face with stitches cannot be maintained forever. Depending on external factors and a person's lifestyle, this effect may persist for 2-5 years. The operation can then be repeated if desired.
Normally when we lie on your back on the bed because of the effect of gravity a slight increase in the eyebrows, generally a younger expression in the face appears. Here is the desired image to be obtained during the operation, this is the natural image and a slight eyebrow elevation.
Since the operation is performed under local anesthesia, there is no need to stay in the hospital. The patient can go home the same day. There may be slight swelling, bruising and pain in the forehead. These will go away spontaneously within 7-10 days.
The patient can go home on the same day and return to normal working life after 1-2 days of rest. There is a bandage on the upper part of the eyebrows to be taken on the 3rd day. After 3 weeks of operation, an elastic bandage (such as a tennis bandage) should be worn on the head to secure the new position of the eyebrows.
What is Temporal Lift?
Wrinkles and sagging occur in many parts of the body depending on the age factor. The most prominent of these changes are seen in the face area. The changes seen on the face are mostly collected around the eye area, forehead and temple. With the loss of elasticity of the skin tissue, sagging of the temple area and a loose tissue appearance occur.
With the effect of gravity, the temples show a downward orientation. This sagging pressure on the outside of the eye and eyebrows. As a result, a downward tendency occurs around the eyes and eyebrows. In other words, sagging in the temple area also affects the eye area, causing a pale appearance away from the youthful appearance on the face. With the temple aesthetics, you can eliminate this image and get a younger-looking expression.
Gravity is the most important cause of sagging of temples. Over time, the skin tissue, which loses its elasticity, cannot resist the force of gravity and is directed downwards. Apart from gravity, age and skin structure also affect the condition of the temples. External factors such as cigarette consumption, sedentary lifestyle, stress, and unhealthy diet are some of the causes of facial wrinkles and sagging. Apart from all these reasons, intense use of mimics in the temple area causes deformation in this area.
In temple stretching surgery, short incisions are opened at the points where the temples meet with the hair bottoms. Here the temple skin is removed and stretched upwards. If sagging is seen intensively in the temples, excess skin is removed. In this case, a more effective stretching is performed by lifting the temple skin, eyebrows and eye area upwards.
In some patients, sagging around the eyes with temporal sagging problem can be seen. In such cases, eyelid surgery is performed and the patient is completely young. That's why we thoroughly examine the faces of patients who come for temple stretching surgery and share all options with patients.
Temporary stretch surgery may be performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia, depending on the patient's preference. Temporary stretch surgery is probably one of the most risk-free compared to aesthetic interventions on the face. It is completed between 30 minutes and 60 minutes, depending on the other procedures combined with surgery.
After temple stretching surgery, the patient is discharged from hospital on the same day. He doesn't have to stay in the hospital. The healing process usually takes two weeks. During the healing period, it is necessary to stay away from the elements that force the temple, eye and eyebrow area and to be careful not to use mimic as much as possible. Facial bruising and swelling are seen after surgery. To minimize them, you need to do ice massage on the face after surgery. Generally, after a few days, slight bruises and swelling on the face disappear by themselves. The incision scar remains slightly postoperative, but is not directly visible because it is on the scalp.
What is Neck Lifting
The sun's rays, frequent weight gain and gravity effect of the person's neck skin, muscles and other tissues, looseness and sagging occurs. This results in an older appearance. While taking great precautions to preserve or improve the appearance of our facial skin, it is very important to pay equal attention to the skin of the neck.
If the skin of your neck has lost its natural elasticity and looks flaccid, or if there is excess fat collected under the chin, there are various aesthetic solutions for this, including neck lifting surgery. By having an experienced plastic surgeon perform neck lift surgery, you can have a smooth, slender and youthful-looking neck.
The loss of young contours on the face and neck may be due to various factors such as inheritance, gravity, environmental conditions and stress. In some people, if the face is still young, aging in the neck is severe, instead of a full face lift, just stretching the neck may be a good solution.
With neck lifting surgery, the skin and fat deposits are removed from the neck area and the muscles under the skin are cut and sutured and reconstructed. Generally, the excess fat in the neck is taken by liposuction method.
Excess fat under the chin and the abundance of the skin in the jaw creates a puddle of fat we call. With the neck lifting operation, this excess oil is removed and the skin layer is cut off. Abnormal deformity caused by muscles under the chin is also corrected. There is a scar in the surgery because an incision is made from the front of the ear to the back.
However, these traces do not attract much attention because they are vague traces.
Modern neck lift surgery, which has developed with advances in surgical technology in the last decade, can be performed with very small incisions, and therefore with small scars, while achieving extremely natural looking results.
A more natural look can be obtained if the neck and cheek filler, neck lifting, eyebrow lifting and eyelid rejuvenation are applied. It is possible to achieve a younger appearance with neck lifting surgery; but this surgery cannot stop the aging process. Rejuvenation of the neck can be achieved without surgery with fillers applied to the neck, but it does not provide as effective results as neck stretching.
What is Forehead Stretching?
The aesthetics of forehead stretching can be applied to anyone who has realistic expectations and has good general health. In this aesthetic operation, the excess skin on the forehead is removed and wrinkles and eyebrows change in the forehead area. If necessary, it can be corrected in the person's frowning appearance.
As a result of the aesthetics of the forehead stretching person has a younger appearance, muscles are softened. This aesthetic application is useful for problems such as low eyebrows and agglomeration of the edges of the eyes. Not only for older people, but also for young people, when necessary, forehead stretching aesthetics can be applied. During this operation, the incision sites are placed on the scalp, and in some cases the scalp line is hidden. That's why there are no visible tracks.
What is Bishectomy?
Sharp and inverted triangular faces, which are increasingly popular nowadays, are more attractive and attractive. Plump and rounded cheeks are said to be cute until a certain age, after 20s away from being attractive.
Hollywood stars also preferred sharp and edges with bishectomy surgery is possible to reach the lines. A more pronounced facial contour is obtained by removing cheek fat with bishectomy.
The plump and round facial features are sometimes in line with the weight, while sometimes the inverse proportional groove is seen in very weak people. It is common for overweight people to lose weight, but the fat on their cheeks remains constant and maintains a round and plump appearance on the face.
Bichat fat cushions on our face and between the two masticatory muscles Buccinator and Masseter muscles are more than necessary in some people. These fat cushions, which give a plump appearance, can be taken with a small operation and given a more proportionate and attractive shape to the face.
The bishectomy operation, which has been performed frequently in foreign countries for a long time, has recently been in demand in our country. “With this operation called Hollywood Cheek surgery, the chubby cheek appearance disappears and cheekbones become prominent.
Cheek oil, from puberty to 20-25 years of age shows the melting of cheek aesthetics should be done after this age. However, it may not be necessary to wait for these ages if the family has genetic and plump cheeks.
Although this aesthetic surgery, which fits on a lunch break, may seem like a very simple procedure, the experience and experience of the plastic surgeon is very important. The amount of fat to be taken according to the face shape of the person should be determined, the chin and cheek triangle should be formed after the operation, however the stitches in the mouth should not disturb the patient.
