Facelift in Poland

Compare 1 clinic

Facelift surgery, also known as a rhytidectomy procedure (literally translating as the surgical removal of wrinkles) is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the USA, after liposuction, breast lift, tummy tuck and breast augmentation.

Facelift surgery is mostly preferred by patients that wish to have a more youthful facial appearance. There are a few different techniques which can be applied during facelift surgery – usually, excess facial skin is removed and the underlying tissue is tightened for a better and long lasting effect. Facelift surgery is often combined with a blepharoplasty procedure for a better effect.

Facelift surgery can also be combined with the following procedures:

● Eyelid surgery
● Neck lift
● Brow lift
● Fat transfer

Facelift Candidates

Facelift surgery is recommended for patients with:

● Wrinkles
● Sagging skin
● Jowls
● Eye bags
● Nasolabial folds

Am I Suitable for Facelift?

Facelift surgery is not recommended for patients suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure and other serious health conditions. Heavy smokers are included in this category as well – smoking can influence the recovery period and ultimately the result of the facelift procedure.

Preparing for Facelift

The patient should avoid vitamins, herbal teas and blood thinners such as aspirin for at least 2 weeks before the facelift surgery. The patient should also stop smoking at least a week before going in for facelift surgery, as it can have a negative effect on the facelift procedure’s outcome.

How is Facelift Performed?

A facelift procedure is an effective way to help patients rejuvenate their facial appearance. The procedure is done under general anaesthesia. Once the anaesthesia kicks in, the surgeon will create an incision point at the temple hair and continue it towards the earlobe and around it, under the ear before finally ending in the hairline behind the ear. The surgeon will then proceed to lift the skin and fatty tissue and separate it from the underlying muscle and connective tissue. At this point, the surgeon may strengthen and tighten the underlying muscle by using sutures, but this is only done in certain cases. The excess skin is then carefully removed and once a satisfactory result is achieved, the surgeon will proceed to close the incision with sutures or staples. Drains may be applied in some cases, to help eliminate excess bodily fluid and facilitate the facelift recovery process. The whole area is then bandaged in order to prevent infection and the facelift recovery period can begin. The surgery usually takes 4 hours and the patient will be required to spend a night in the hospital.

Facelift Recovery

The facelift recovery period lasts around a week in most cases. During the facelift recovery period the patient should not use makeup for at least 4-5 days after the surgery. Certain activities can loosen the sutures – it’s best to wait for 2 weeks before engaging in contact sports. Once the dressings are removed in around 7 days, the patient can return to normal activities.

Facelift Risks and Complications

One of the most common facelift complications is developing an infection.

Other facelift complications can include:
● Damage to facial nerves
● Hematoma
● Skin necrosis – smoking can increase the risk of this happening
● Hair loss – due to incisions

Facelift Side Effects

The patient may feel discomfort, pain and nausea from the anaesthesia for 1-2 days after the surgery. Patients also experience inflammation, swelling and bruising but these post-op effects will gradually pass in around 5 to 10 days after the facelift surgery.

Facelift Success Rates

A survey based on 131 facelift surgery reviews sets the satisfaction rate at 97.8%, one year after the procedure was performed. A follow-up 12 years later after the facelift surgery sets the satisfaction rate at 68.5%.

Before and After Facelift

Facelift surgery is a long lasting solution for patients wishing a more youthful appearance. The results of this procedure last for around 10 years.
