FACE & NECK LIFT
What is a face lift?
A face lift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure in which the excess skin around your face is removed. The remaining skin is then uplifted. Folds and wrinkles are also smoothed out and the skin is tightened. This will not only provide a more youthful look but also remove deep wrinkles and creases around the mouth and nose. Excess fat under the chin and around the neck is also removed. All together the procedure will give a long-lasting youthful appearance otherwise unable to be achieved by common cosmetic products.
What is a neck lift?
A neck lift, also known as platysmaplasty or cervicoplasty, is a procedure in which your skin and soft tissues in and around your neck are adjusted and repositioned. Typically, a liposuction is performed with a neck lift to remove excess fat.
Do I need a face lift or neck lift?
If you feel that you have an aged face with wrinkles, excess skin, folds and creases, then a face lift is the most ideal solution to get rid of all of them. As for a neck lift, if you feel your neck appears saggy and wrinkled or contains excess fat, then this procedure is again the ideal solution. If you wish to have a more youthful and joyous appearance that will also improve your mental wellbeing, then we will be more than happy to help.
What must I do to prepare for a face lift or neck lift?
Just like with any other surgery, you must stop smoking for at least a week, stop taking blood thinners and certain medications, stop consuming alcohol, and apply specific products to your face before the procedure. Your SALUSS doctor will advise you on the specific details of preparation after you contact them.
How long does a face lift and neck lift take and what kind of anaesthesia do you use?
A standard face lift will take approximately 3 to 4 hours. You can combine this with eyelid or brow surgery which extends the duration to 6 hours. A standard neck lift will take approximately 2 to 4 hours. General anaesthesia is the standard type used for these procedures.
How long do I stay in Turkey and where will I be accommodated?
The typical length of stay for a face lift surgery would be 10 days in Turkey. You will be provided hotel and hospital accommodation in accordance with your treatment plan and this will outline how many nights you stay you will receive in both.
You will be treated and accommodated fully in Antalya, the touristic capital of Europe, where you will enjoy your stay and recovery at a beachside hotel with all the holidaying opportunities you could wish for, which SALUSS can help organise.
What can I expect after a face lift and neck lift?
Once you are out of the operating room you will be brought to your hospital room where you will stay until you are fit for discharge.
Your doctor will give you instructions on when you can remove your bandages and dressings, as well as provide you your medication and instructions on how to take them.
You will likely experience swelling which will subside. Then you can experience the full results of your surgery.
You must not perform normal physical activity for around 2 weeks and wait 4 weeks before performing moderate physical exercise.
You must stay out of the sun and moisturise your skin to protect it from the damages of sunlight and ageing.
Any scaring is mainly hidden under your hairline and will take around 12 to 18 months to heal or fade away.
