Facelift is an operative intervention aimed at minimizing or completely eliminating the aging processes on the face. Thanks to this procedure, which retains the reputation of the "gold standard" in the field of rejuvenation, it is possible to eliminate the sagging of the middle zone of the face, the second chin, vertical wrinkles coming from the corners of the lips to the chin, and also to correct the jaw zone.
There are several types of facelift:
Experienced surgeons at the EstiMED clinic use an innovative new approach to facelift, a face lift with a short scar.
Lifting of a face with a short scar is a lifting, in which the surgeon uses not a full, "classic", but the so-called "short" access.With the "classical" access suggested by Dr. Joseph, "... the incision should be started in the scalp of the temple, held in front of the auricle to the earlobe, bending around it, and ending at the nape."
Our doctors demonstrate the wide possibilities of minimally invasive operations that make a pre-access, perform SMAS-interchange with the fixation of the superficial fascia with part of the platysma to the fixed part of the aponeurosis of the saliva of the gland. This technique minimizes scars and gives the face a more natural look than standard SMAS lifting. Mandatory element of the operation is liposuction of the neck, allowing to achieve skin contraction and is quite sufficient for patients with minor involuntary changes in the face.
Advantages over the classic approach for SMAS - lifting
Since the operation is performed under anesthesia, patients need to undergo a full medical examination and consultation of specialists in our clinic.
After facial plastic surgery, the recovery is quite smooth and without complications. Swelling and bruising can last for 5-7 days. Significant recession of edema occurs on 2-3 weeks. During this period, damaged tissues and muscles are restored, hematomas dissolve. Immediately after the operation, it is necessary to wear a supporting bandage for 5-7 days. Sutures are removed after 12-14 days. During rehabilitation, you should refrain from smoking, drinking alcohol, visiting the sauna.
