    What is a Facelift?

    Your faces can reveal details about your feelings, character or age. Especially when patients start to age or appear aged, they also begin to look for solutions to improve their appearances. Clinic Center, the leading company for surgical interventions, hosts hundreds of patients for rhytidectomy operations to enhance their appearances for affordable face lift prices.

    The face lifting with Clinic Center involves the removal of unnecessary fat, adjustment on the face muscles and improvement for firming the skin to obtain desired outcomes. The operation is performed when the patient is under general anaesthesia and can last for a few hours in line with the methods applied by the expert in charge.

    The face lift incision lines go from the temples on the face to the end of the earlobes, and the scarring completely covers the patient’s hairline. Suppose the candidate also suffers from saggy skin on their neck or face. In that case, the surgeon in charge can apply more than one method for a face and neck lift to obtain a lifted neck, for which your surgeon should open an additional incision below the jaw to enhance the muscles.

    Types of Facelifts

    Each person experiences sagginess at different rates, and to serve their needs; various methods are applied. Clinic Center offers a variety of techniques to its patients, such as:

    •         Mini face lift, also known as a lower facelift:
    •         Mid Face Lifting
    •         Lifting on the Forehead (Brow lifting)
    •         Temple Lifting
    •         Neck Lift
    •         Full-Face-Lift

    Mini Face Lift

    The operation for a mini facelift lasts around two hours while the patient is under general anaesthesia. This operation involves making mini face lift incisions from the front of the ear to the back of the ear to reduce the sagginess on the chin and cheeks. That is why another generally used name for the operation in the lower facelift.

    Mid Face Lifting

    Also referred to as cheek skin lifting, it is an operation to enhance the appearance of the cheeks to obtain a younger look on the patient’s face. Through the procedure, the patient acquires a structured face. Additional facelift incision around the eye area is made to maintain the lifted appearance.

    Lifting on the Forehead

    Also referred to as brow lifting, the procedure is performed to reduce the appearance of wrinkling, enhance the frown lines, lift the brows, and obtain a younger appearance on the patient’s face.  The surgeon makes the cuts in the hairline around the forehead.

    Temple Lifting

    The operation is a method of eliminating wrinkles on the forehead and correcting the sagginess of the eyelids. Two symmetrical lines on the temples are made above the ears, incisions and facelift sutures are hidden by your hair.

    Your surgeon will determine the best types of face lifts for you in line with the condition of your face and your requests. However, two of the methods above are popular applications, and one of them is the traditional face lift, through which various incision lines are made to apply the appropriate techniques for the case. The second technique is endoscopy, where the procedures are carried out with small cameras. As stated, your surgeon will make the final decision for your facelift surgery.

    Face Lift Results

    After their operations with Clinic Center, our patients feel satisfied to reach their desired facial structures. However, for them to see the final face lift results of the procedure, it usually takes several months as the swelling and bruises on the area need to heal before the outcomes of the plastic surgery face lift can be observed.

    Your surgeon will carefully make your incision lines to eliminate visible scarring along the hairline. As they heal, they will become tough to notice. Patients usually observe that their face is tighter, firmer, and more structured after the cosmetic surgery facelift. You will maintain these outcomes for years, and your face will continue to look younger. To get a better idea of the operation results, you can visit our website gallery to see our patients’ face lifts before and after photos.

    Rhytidectomy FAQ

    How are the facelift incisions made?

    They can be created on various areas of the face and neck in line with the method of operation applied. Brow lifting is made through an incision within the hairline around the forehead, whereas with temple face lifting treatment, the incision lines are made above the ears. While a mid face lift requires incisions on the eyelids, a mini face lift requires an incision starting from the front of the ear to its behind. Lastly, a neck lift plastic surgery necessitates incisions that follow the hairline, starting from the sideburn to the earlobe level.

    Do face lift incisions leave scars?

    As a standard practice, your facelift incision lines will be made along your hairline, and their visibility will not be an issue. However, our surgeons always pay extra attention to patients’ confidence and try to cover them as much as they can be.

    Can I get long-lasting results with facelifts?

    Your skin might be tight and numb; however, those issues will get back to normal as the skin settles. They generally result from post-operative swelling. Although the procedure offers permanent results to patients, ageing is not a phenomenon to be delayed, and as you age, your face lift results can differ. However, if you lead a healthier life, your skin lifting will be permanent.

    How much does a face lift cost abroad?

    Clinic Center offers the best prices for your procedure. Your face lift operation will be comparatively cheaper; however, your price may differ in line with the techniques used or added to the combination to suit your needs better. Your costs for the surgery will be even cheaper with the added benefits of our all-inclusive packages.

    What is a mini face lift with one stitch?

    It is a technique that involves only one stitch on the outside. It aims to fix the issues experienced on the middle of the face, which covers the cheekbones. However, most patients experience a little lift also on the chin. The procedure is carried out under local anaesthesia, and the specialist creates an opening just above the hairline, and no post-operative swelling can be seen. Generally, patients can get back to their life the next day.

    Does the mini facelift last for long?

    With most patients, results for a mini facelift will easily  last around ten years before another lift or procedure is required. However a full facelift can last approximately twenty years. Many patients report that the results last even longer by a few more years for both surgeries.
