Lifting the face and neck

Lifting the face and neck

Facelift and necklift – lifting of the face and neck is a procedure of plastic surgery suitable for patients with a markedly significant sagging of the soft tissue of the lower part of the face, neck. A double chin is caused by muscle weakness that can be caused by a genetic or hormonal problem and afflicting not only obese but also slender men or women.

The procedure will solve the excess skin of the face and neck, resulting in a remarkably rejuvenated appearance and stretched skin in the area of the face and neck. Most commonly, this procedure is performed in elderly patients aged 50 years or over. The operation must be performed at a suitable age, if done too soon, the effect is also good, but short-term. In terms of long-term effect, it is preferable to make surgery when structures are no longer flexible.

The principle of surgery – after the initial cut just before the ear bolt, the skin is released from the muscular layer of the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system). This is followed by stretching of the SMAS muscle layer and stretching of the skin with the removal of excess skin. The wounds are then stitched. The result is a face with a youthful impression and a smoothened lower face and neck with a stretched skin. The procedure is performed in local or total anesthesia.
