As the years go by, slowly, slowly, the first signs of aging begin to appear. The skin loses its firmness, wrinkles appear, cheekbones lose volume and the skin takes on a tired appearance.
Face lifting is a complex surgical intervention that can be performed for the purpose of visible rejuvenation of the face and neck. The procedure can correct: sagging skin, wrinkles around the mouth, double chin.
The procedure is dedicated to patients over 35 years of age, who feel the need for a rejuvenating effect, without resorting to temporary, minimally invasive interventions. As a surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess skin, the result is permanent.
How is the face lift performed?
The first step patients take is a medical consultation, during which the doctor will decide the best option.
Surgical intervention involves the removal of excess skin. This is done from the sides of the face so that when the incision is closed the patient is not left with visible scars.
The procedure is performed under anesthesia, to ensure the comfort of our patients.
The treatment is not painful, all you have to do is follow the specialist’s advice closely.
The lifting intervention requires a recovery period, being a surgical procedure.
The recovery period is about 3 weeks after the intervention.
The final result will be visible after about 1-2 months after the operation, until then the area will be slightly inflamed. This is absolutely normal after surgery.
We recommend that you visit regularly, according to medical recommendations, and keep us informed of the progress of your result.
The rules after the lifting procedure
After the operation, it is necessary to wear a compression corset in the area. This is to minimize inflammation and bruising of the area.
In the first few days it is necessary to apply ice to the treated areas to reduce the risk of bruising.
It is recommended to sleep or stay in bed with your head slightly elevated to prevent complications and ensure the best results.
Avoid applying cosmetics and make-up in the first weeks after the intervention.
Stop intense physical activity (training) for the first few weeks.
Do not expose yourself to the sun for the first 6-8 weeks.
Follow your doctor’s recommendations closely.

How long will I enjoy the effect of the face lift?
The effect of the face lift is final. The procedure involves the removal of excess tissue, acquired with age. After the procedure, the patient will achieve a rejuvenated appearance of up to 10 years, extremely natural, compared to the results of minimally invasive procedures. A healthy lifestyle and proper hydration are necessary for an optimal effect, preserved as beautifully as possible, over time.
Is recovery after the facelift procedure difficult?
Of course, after the lifting the patient will need a recovery period, which will not be very easy, but not extremely difficult either. It’s important to follow your doctor’s advice and come for post-operative check-ups to make sure everything is going as it should. The patient will not experience pain, and if he has any discomfort, the doctor will prescribe a prescription to eliminate this symptom.
