A facelift, which is performed in accordance with modern techniques, fulfils the following criteria:
- Natural-looking, healthy appearance with no traces of plastic surgery.
- Enduring results.
To achieve natural-looking, enduring results, not only the plastic surgeon’s know-how and experience is of particular importance, but also the technique applied. Satisfying results are achieved through a complex technique called “super extended face-neck-lift”. The process involves lifting not only the upper layer of skin but also the underlying connective tissue and facial muscles.
Surgery is performed under local anaesthesia and is completely painless.
Already on the first day after operation, the bandages can be removed and after two days it is possible to return home. The stitches are then removed after six to eight days. Any temporary facial discolorations can be easily concealed with make-up.
After a face lift temporary skin discolouration, swelling and initial skin tension can be expected, all of which are completely normal. Sporting activities can be resumed after approximately four 4 weeks. Sunbathing should be avoided for six weeks.
