Facelift operation is the process of lifting hanging skin and muscle layers and removing wrinkles. There are many application methods for this.
2- Mini facelift
It is possible to support these operations with nonsurgical interventions such as Botox, filling materials, etc.
Nonsurgical Face Rejuvenation Operations
Botox is a preparation which is prepared by reducing effect level of Botulinum toxin and have important benefits in Plastic Surgery today.
Even if it is very natural that very active muscles such as the mimic muscles wrinkle the skin upon them while functioning; it is a known fact that this leads to permanent wrinkles on skin. Of course it is also possible to remove these wrinkles by preventing functions of these muscles.
Botox is the supplementary drug in this case because it is not possible to prevent this intentionally. Removal of upper wrinkle line by relaxing the lower muscle is enabled with injection of that drug into that muscle and wrinkle lines are not seen until the effect of the drug is gone (approximately 6 months). All lines created by the mimic muscles in face are erased even if for a while and the person’s skin becomes smooth and bright. Repeating the operation after 6 months enables this condition to last longer, thus the person can keep his/her young image.
Although the process is not painful, it is supported with local anesthetic pomades for enabling the person not to feel the needle while it is going in and out. The person can immediately return to social life.
Some wrinkles cannot be resolved only by Botox application and it is needed to apply filling material underneath them. Similarly, it is required to use filling materials to remove some scars as well. These filling materials can be provided from the person himself/herself (fat, fascia, etc.) and also from outside as medication with the present technology. This material is generally Hyaluronic Acid which is also included in human body. It is determined that this material, which is on sale in various forms and amounts, has no side effect and it is safely used. The person can immediately return to social life.
Eyelid Operations (Blepharoplasty)
Eyelid is the organ which reflects ages, conditions and fatigue of people at most when we take a frontal look at their faces. Age, daily fatigue, happiness-sadness manifest themselves on eyelids at first.
Blepharoplasty, which is eyelid rejuvenation procedures, can provide a comeback, rejuvenation, fresh-looking and happiness expression to people. Thanks to this operation, not only resolution of the unneedful hanging skin on eyelids, but also removal of unneedful or herniated tissues and repair of looseness in the muscle tissue are provided. In some cases, it provides serious visual improvement because hanging eyelids hinder visual functions.
The same operation is very beneficial; when all face rejuvenation process is applied, in obtaining the right result with the processes such as facelift, Botox-filling material application, etc. In the case that we cannot obtain a result only with eyelid operations (crowis feet deformation, darkness under eyes, etc.), other methods are utilized.
