Our faces reflect not only our feelings, positive and negative but mostly also the natural aging process in the form of wrinkles.
Since the elasticity of the skin decreases in the course of life due to genes, the sun and individual lifestyle, the connective tissue and the muscles of the face slacken. The soft tissues pull forwards and downwards, which leads to wrinkles, sagging contours and a tired appearance. In addition, flab can also form on the chin, cheeks or eyelids.
Furrows around the nose and mouth, frown lines on the forehead, and wrinkles in the cheek and eye area can also contribute to an undesirable facial expression.
A facelift cannot stop aging, but excess tissue can be removed by a facelift, the soft parts of the face can be tightened or returned to their original position and the remaining skin can be re-stretched.
In general, a midifacelift rejuvenates the face by a few years and a new and fresher overall impression can be achieved.
The facelift can be used alone or in conjunction with the following common procedures:
- Eyelid lift
- Neck lift
- Forehead lift
- Liposuction in the face and neck area
- Wrinkle injection
- Laser dermabrasion in the mouth and lid area
- Nose surgery
The forehead is constantly in motion. Deep wrinkles can form at a young age, particularly through habitual frowning.
With increasing age, the facial skin loses its firmness, and sunlight, fast diets and other factors also cause the forehead skin to sag. Deep forehead wrinkles and drooping eyebrows can add a tired and angry expression to the face.
A forehead lift can eliminate these problems by tightening the forehead skin and adjusting the forehead muscles, giving the face a younger, fresher look and a friendlier, more open expression.
The platysma muscle is largely responsible for a tight neck. Loss of elasticity can lead to typical wrinkles in the neck area, which have a disruptive effect on a fresh overall expression.
Combined interventions - laser therapy plus surgical tightening - can achieve a fresh look in the neck and décolleté area.
A selection of surgical procedures in combination with additional methods is available for the individual facelift. Depending on the extent of the planned operation, a facelift can either be performed on an outpatient basis or combined with a short stay in hospital. Facial lifts are usually performed under sedation and local anesthesia.
The operation usually takes several hours and depends on the extent of the planned procedure. In the consultation, you will be informed in detail about the scope, the exact planning and the operation procedure.
