Overview of Facelift Surgery: Techniques and Procedures

Over the years, natural aging processes affect all of us – the skin starts gradually sagging, wrinkles form, and signs of fatigue begin to appear on the face. Rhytidectomy, or facelift surgery, is an effective way to stop time for at least a little while. Although this operation is more common among older patients, the increasing pace of life and overdoing sunbaths bring more and more young patients to plastic surgeons.

Natural Aging Processes

The face ages gradually – the outer corners of the eyes and lips descend, the eyelids’ skin sags, the lower jawline loses its definition, the neck skin gets loose, and the face begins to look tired. Facelift surgery can help patients who want firmer, smoother facial skin to make them look younger. Ficlinica specializes in providing tailored facelift procedures to address these signs of aging effectively.

Major Weight Loss

The facial skin can also sag after losing a lot of weight, especially in the lower part of the face around the chin and neck. During this surgery, excess skin is removed, and pronounced contours of the chin and cheekbone lines are formed to make the face look firmer. At Ficlinica, our experienced surgeons ensure that the results are natural-looking and harmonize with the patient’s overall appearance.

Combining Facelift with Other Plastic Surgeries

It is possible to combine a facelift with other facial plastic surgeries. It is especially convenient to perform it together with an eyelid lift because the same problem of sagging skin is being solved. Combined operations are performed under the same general anesthesia, and the healing also happens simultaneously. Fi Clinica offers comprehensive consultation services to determine the best combination of procedures for each patient’s needs.

How is the Facelift Performed?

There are several types of facelifts. Some include adjustments to the lower and middle part of the face and neck area, and others address the entire face. Although the purpose of these surgeries is very similar – to tighten the facial skin, fix deeper tissues that make up the facial skeleton, and remove excess skin – the surgical techniques may differ based on each patient’s case. Facelifts at Ficlinica are performed under general anesthesia, ensuring a comfortable experience for our patients.

Lower Facelift and Mid-Facelift

The lower facelift and mid-facelift surgeries are also known as short scar lifts. The incisions are usually smaller and made at the front of the ear, starting at the hairline and reaching the earlobe. The lower facelift, tightening the skin around the cheeks and neck, is recommended for patients whose problem areas are the so-called “turkey throat,” sagging chin, and cheeks.

Full Facelift

During a classic full facelift, incisions are made around the ears and hairline. Lifting the tissues in several directions allows defining the jaw and cheeks contour and reducing wrinkles. Excess skin can also be removed if necessary. The full facelift includes adjusting the forehead, cheeks, jawline, and neck area. Ficlinica’s approach to a full facelift is meticulous, ensuring a balanced and youthful result.
