Face-lift is a method for tightening sagging structures of face and neck. A gentle, limited incision along with a lifting of skin, muscle and connective tissue structures causes only very discrete scars. The result is an effect of rejuvenation, which lasts 5 to 10 years. A facelift procedure can be repeated if requested.
Accompanying measures like skin revitalisation with hyaluronan or a laser treatment can correct subtle wrinkles and improve the result already achieved.
The procedure takes about 90 minutes for each side of the face and can be done outpatient as well as inpatient either in local anaesthesia, half-sleep or general anaesthesia.
This kind of operation is usually recommended from the age of 40. Post-operative recovery takes about 2 to 3 weeks. Already one week past the surgery the swelling has healed and stitches will be removed. Within 2 weeks you won´t be experiencing any more social discomfort. Three weeks past the surgery any kind of sports can be practiced again. Just avoid direct sunlight for several weeks.
