Face Lift Neck Lift

WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF FACE LIFT AND NECK LIFT SURGERIES?

Classic face and neck lift operations are the complement of combined facial rejuvenation operations, including the solution of aging problems on upper and mid-face. Generally, face and neck lift operations are performed at the same time.

The surgery is performed for those with subcutaneous tissue loss, loss of elasticity and related to that for those who have sagging and old appearance, as well as neck deformities in face and neck areas in middle and older ages.

According to the individuals’ sagging and need, preauricular incision or postauricular incision extending towards scalp is used.

The assessment for 3-dimensional volume loss and sagging is needed. Facial sagging and neck sagging in the skin are removed; subcutaneous fascia and subfacial tissue are tightened.
