I recently had a rhinoplasty in Turkey, it was so hard to find the right surgeon to get it done by, and also to even get the courage to do it!! but fortunately I got in contact with Nadia, she helped me alot through this process, she is not only sweet but also professional and she was always available and responding to my questions... So far it was a good experience with Flymedi! Nothing to complain about! The process went smooth just as they offered me :)

Hi, I just recently had surgery and before I could decide the best safest choice for me. I googled a lot! Came across Flymedi and they made the overseas surgery bookings including hotel so much easier. My health consultant is very kind and sweet and still after the surgery, she still checks up on me. I am very satisfied with the results of the surgery and the clinic that they chose! This is mainly for those like me who want to have a certain surgery done that perhaps don't exist in the country you reside in. Flymedi helped me with finding a fit clinic, booked hotel and driver to pick me up and also drop me off to all the destinations such as the Airport. I had this surgery in late November 2019 in Istanbul, I highly recommend Flymedi to anyone who wants to be safe, satisfied and happy! Thank You to Fatima at Flymedi for all her help and Big Thank You to Flymedi for existing! You've definitely made this surgery and journey for me much more easy and comfortable!

Recommended For Facelift

Facelift surgery is recommended for patients with: 

  • Wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Jowls
  • Eye bags
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Deep creases around the mouth and nose
  • Excess skin under the chin and in the neck

Not Recommended For Facelift

Facelift surgery is not recommended for patients who have 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. Healthy patients who do not have medical conditions that impair healing and have realistic expectations are generally accepted as good candidates for the facelift procedure. 

Number Of Trips Abroad

Overview

2 to 5 hours

Overview

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. According to latest data released by American Society of Plastic Surgeons, facelift surgery or face lifting is 6th most common surgeries performed in 2018 with the number of 121,531 procedures, after top 5 plastic surgeries which are breast augmentation, liposuction, nose job (rhinoplasty union eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) and tummy tuck (abdominoplasty).

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 an eyelid surgery procedure for a better effect.

Facelift surgery can also be combined with the following procedures to enhance the youthful appearance of the patients: 

  • Eyelid surgery
  • Neck lift
  • Brow lift
  • Forehead lift
  • Fat transfer
  • Skin peels

Preparation

The patient should avoid vitamins, herbal teas and blood thinners such as aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs for at least 2 weeks before the facelift surgeryas those supplements and medications can increase bleeding and bruising during and after the surgery. The patient should also stop smoking, as it can have a negative effect on the healing process.

How It Is Performed

A facelift procedure is an effective way to help patients rejuvenate their facial appearance. The procedure is done under general anesthesia. Once the anesthesia applied, the surgeon will create an incision behind the hairline and around the front of the ear. The surgeon will then proceed to lift the skin and fatty tissue and separate it from the underlying muscle and tissue. The excess skin is then carefully removed, and once a satisfactory result is achieved, the surgeon will proceed to close the incision with sutures. Drains may be applied in some cases, to help eliminate excess bodily fluid and facilitate the 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.Mini facelifts, which have more slender effects than the standard facelift procedure, use shorter incisions at the temples that continue around the ear.

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. Once the dressings are removed in around 7 days, the patient can return to normal activities.It generally takes about two weeks for resuming a normal level of daily activity same with the patient did before the surgery. For more strenuous activities, like exercise, patients should wait about four weeks.

Risks

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

Other facelift complications can include: 

  • Anesthesia risks
  • Blood clots
  • Pain or scarring
  • Damage to facial nerves
  • Hematoma
  • Skin necrosis – smoking can increase the risk of this happening
  • Hair loss – due to incisions

Side Effects

The patient may feel discomfort, pain, and nausea from the anesthesia for 1-2 days after the surgery. Patients also experience inflammation, problems with wound healing, prolonged swelling, and bruising, but these post-op effects will gradually pass in around 5 to 10 days after the facelift surgery. If not, the patient should inform the doctor in case of any extraordinary condition. 

Success Rates

A survey based on 131 facelift surgery reviews sets the satisfaction rate at 97.8% (87 patients union one year after the procedure was performed. A follow-up 12 years later, after the facelift surgery sets the satisfaction rate at 68.5% (61 patients). 

While there are many non-surgical choices to get a more youthful look, such as Botox, dermal fillers, laser lifts or face tape, facelift surgery provides the most permanent results with the high satisfaction rates.

Before And After

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

A thread facelift or facelift threading is a safe and effective alternative to traditional facelift surgery in particular cases. This procedure is designed to be less invasive, more quickly, and with less risk than the standard approach. 

Faq

Are Facelift Scars Visible?  Facelift scars are hidden in the hairline or the natural creases of the skin, so they are not visible.


If I Have Facelift Surgery, Will My Face Look Too Tight?
The patient will have a natural looking facial appearance after facelift surgery. It’s a good idea to see a couple of facelifts before and after pictures in order to get a good idea of what the procedure can achieve. 

How Long Until The Permanent Facelift Surgery Results Are Noticeable? It can take up to a year before the permanent results of facelift surgery are visible. During this time, the swelling gradually subsides, and small changes take place.There are also some long-term recommendations for the patients to keep the results long-lasting, such as maintaining a healthy weight and adopting a consistent and quality skin care regimen.
