When is facelift surgery required?

Non-surgical procedures in aesthetics have become quite common. Devices working with Botox, filler, radiofrequency, and laser energy are at the service of people in many centers. With the success of these methods, it is possible to manage until the age of 50. In fact, in some face types, we can look younger by doing these procedures intermittently for a longer period of time.

What do we do in facelift surgery?

The face is a whole. It’s like a slogan for me. I never evaluate a single region. It is pleasing to the eye when the whole face is harmonious together. If we simply describe the procedure we do during facelift surgery; The sagging on the face is corrected by hanging the structure called Smass, which forms the muscle, fat, and nervous tissue of our face, and the skin that creates the abundance is removed in an appropriate amount.


At the same time, signs of aging on the upper and lower eyelids can be corrected. Skin is taken from this area, the displaced fat is transported to the appropriate place and the excess ones are removed. In addition, after the age of 60, sagging occurs in the neck area. Again, during facelift surgery, the neck muscle can be gathered as if wearing an inner corset. Sagging skin can be removed to a suitable extent. In patients who are overweight, it may also be necessary to remove fat from the neck.
