Surgery for Wrinkles or Facelift

There are several types of Lifting - including facelift.

  The purpose of Facelift is to remove excess tissue (skin, muscle and fat) in the facial area and to distribute the rest of the tissue in the area. Thus, even wrinkles can disappear.

  Facelift should not be confused with the so-called thread-lift. This is a minimally invasive procedure that can be used to correct moderate wrinkles. Facelift is usually done in patients aged between 40 and 60 years. The degree of skin elasticity depends on the success of the procedure. If the skin is elastic enough even at an advanced age, then a Facelift can significantly help to improve the appearance without exaggeration. It can be stress of an excessively stretched skin can lead to an unnatural appearance.

PURPOSE OF LIFTING

  Lifting removes excess tissue (skin, muscle and fat), and the tissue leans on the face. The purpose is a renewed look of the person.

  To achieve the best possible results, it can combine Facelift with Blepharoplasty, Lifting Neck, Chemical Peeling, Laser, Botox®. We distinguish the frontal-lifting and the lifting of the face and neck.

Frontal-lifting

  The frontal-lifting removes the wrinkles on the forehead and especially the wrinkles of anger between the eyebrows. The operation is done endoscopically by releasing the fore muscles.

Face and neck lifting

  Face and neck lifting can be performed with different techniques. Depending on the extent of the planned surgery, it is called mini lifting or macs lifting or facial and neck lifting.

  With the Mini-lift technique, only excess skin is removed in the area of ​​the cheek. This procedure is applied to young patients. Macs-Lift applies the SMAS technique where all the loose tissues of the cheek (skin, muscles, fat) return to their natural position, giving a natural result. It is particularly applicable to patients over 40 years of age. The face-neck lifting removes excess tissue (skin, muscles, fat) on the face and neck. It is often necessary to remove fat from the progile for a better aesthetic result.
