Face Lift Surgery

What Happens to the Percentage During Aging?

  • Depending on gravity, the textures hang down the truth. This effect is more obvious in thick skin. Eyebrows, upper eyelids, cheeks and neck are the structures most affected by gravity. As we age, our eyebrows and upper lids pile up, the cheeks hang down, and the lines that go from the nose to the lips get deeper. Stacks begin at the edge of the jawbone, the neck skin loosens and the jowl becomes obvious.
  • Facial soft tissue loss occurs. Due to the loss of subcutaneous tissue, the skin becomes thinner, the cheeks lose their fullness, the eyes go into the hollow, the under-eye bags become obvious, the mid-face area becomes flattened. While the midface loses its fullness, the facial skin is piled on the chin edges. The face, which is oval when young, becomes round over time and then becomes rectangular.
  • Skin aging begins. The skin becomes thinner and loses its elasticity. Especially due to sunlight, spots on the face and skin lesions that may turn into cancer in the future occur. With the effect of mimic muscles, mimic lines mostly appear around the eyes, in the middle of the eyebrows and on the forehead.

Is It Possible to Delay Facial Aging?

Probably the most valuable factor determining aging is genetics. A person with a proper genetic structure ages late, even if the environmental conditions are terrible. Apart from that, racial characteristics are valuable. While sagging due to gravity is observed more in the Mediterranean race with thick skin, wrinkles are more obvious in the thin-skinned blond Northern Europeans. The factors that can be controlled by a person about aging are as follows: sleeping properly, eating well, staying away from the sun, consuming plenty of fluids, not smoking, not consuming too much alcohol, avoiding tension, living in a clean environment, avoiding excessive make-up, using regular moisturizers and skin care products. .

Facial Rejuvenation Procedures

Facial rejuvenation processes are the general name given to a series of surgical and non-surgical processes aimed at eliminating facial scars due to aging.

Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Procedures

In the middle of non-surgical rejuvenation processes, suspension processes, skin peeling processes, botulinum toxin and filler applications can be counted.

  • Rope hanging procedure; Eyebrows, mid-face area and neck can be suspended with hangers made with closed technique and special threads. They are effective on light sagging. The time of effect is variable according to the equipment used. The effect of fusible threads lasts about 1.5 – 2 years. Suspension made with non-melting, silicone-coated threads is much longer periodic. They are suitable systems for patients who are thought to be early for surgery and for patients who do not want surgery. They are applied under local anesthesia and the post-process smoothing process is very short.
  • The aim in skin peeling processes is to remove the stained, damaged and wrinkled upper layer of the skin and replace it with a new and fresh skin. This process is carried out by either mechanical sanding of the skin (dermabrasion), or peeling by burning with various acids (chemical peeling, chemical peeling), or peeling with the help of laser beams.
  • Lasers and other light applications stimulate the production of collagen under the skin, as well as peeling the skin, thereby thickening and refreshing the skin.
  • The purpose of botulinum toxin applications is to prevent the formation of mimic lines and delay their deepening by inactivating the mimic muscles. It is mostly applied to the upper part of the face. It is very effective on the crow’s feet around the eyes, the vertical lines in the middle of the eyebrows and the horizontal lines on the forehead.
  • Filling issues Various filling elements are used in filling deep wrinkles on the face, replacing the loss of volume in the middle face, clarifying the facial contours, and plumping the lips. While fat tissue taken from the patient is preferred in large areas, ready-made filling considerations are applied for smaller areas. In the middle of these, the most commonly used thing called hyaluronic acid and found in the connective tissue in the middle of the cells in the body.
  • Light sources (IPL) systems such as BBL non-peeling lasers, radiofrequency. These systems trigger collagen synthesis and elastin by stimulating cells called fibroblasts in the skin. These provide tightening of the skin and improvement in skin quality.

What are Facial Rejuvenation Surgeries?

We divide facial rejuvenation surgeries into three:

Upper facial rejuvenation:

Forehead, temples, eyebrows and upper eyelids. In this region, lifting processes are performed mostly for sagging caused by gravity. These include endoscopic and open forehead lift processes, temple lift, eyebrow lift, eyebrow suspensions, upper eyelid surgery (upper blepharoplasty).

Midface rejuvenation:

Lower eyelids, cheeks and cheekbones. The purpose in this area is to fix the deteriorated lower eyelid-cheek ligament, to carry the drooping cheek up and to replace the soft tissue loss. In the middle of these processes, lower eyelid surgery (lower blepharoplasty), endoscopic mid-face lift, mid-face lift processes from the lower lid, mid-face straps, fat injections and fillings can be counted.

Lower face and neck lift:

chin edges, lower lips and neck. In this region, the aim is to lift the face hanging down with the effect of gravity, to correct the skin accumulations (jowl) formed on the jawbone, to remove excess fat in its length and to stretch its length. In the middle of these processes, face and neck lift surgeries and longitudinal liposuction processes can be counted.
