Face lift surgery, also known as rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to improve the appearance of the face by tightening loose or sagging skin, smoothing out wrinkles, and restoring a more youthful contour to the face. The procedure can be performed on the entire face, or it can be targeted to specific areas such as the mid-face or lower face.
In Antalya, Turkey, facelift surgery is performed by a team of qualified plastic surgeons who have extensive experience in performing facelift surgery. The surgeons use the latest techniques and technology to ensure that patients achieve the best possible results. The surgery is performed in a state-of-the-art facility, where patients can receive excellent care and be treated with the utmost safety and comfort.
The facelift procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and takes several hours to complete, depending on the extent of the surgery. During the procedure, the surgeon will make incisions along the hairline, behind the ears and if needed, under the chin. The skin is then lifted and the underlying muscles and tissues are tightened, while excess skin is removed. The incisions are then closed with sutures or surgical staples.

Recovery after facelift surgery can take several weeks. Patients may experience some swelling, bruising and discomfort during the first few days after the surgery. It is important for patients to follow their surgeon’s instructions for aftercare, including getting enough rest and keeping the head elevated to minimize swelling. A compression bandage or garment may be worn for the first few days to help reduce swelling. The final results of the surgery will be visible within a couple of months of the surgery.
Facelift surgery can produce significant results in terms of improving the appearance of the face and restoring a more youthful look. The procedure can help to eliminate wrinkles, smooth out fine lines, and give the face a more defined and contoured appearance. Additionally, the procedure can also help to improve self-esteem, boost self-confidence and make patients look and feel their best.
It’s important to keep in mind that facelift surgery is not a solution to prevent aging and it’s not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. It’s also not a procedure that should be undertaken lightly and that the ideal candidate should have realistic expectations and be in good physical and mental health.

About Face Lift Surgery
Who is candidate for Face Lift Surgery?
You are a good candidate for facelift surgery if:
- Your facial skin is sagging below the lower eyelids, around the nose and the mouth, chin, and jawline.
- You have jowls from the displacement of fat pads and loss of skin elasticity.
- You are in good health, do not smoke, and have realistic expectations from the surgery.
- You do not have a wound-healing disorder, cardiac disease, and/or diabetes
Face Lift Types
There are different facelifts, but more importantly, various techniques are used to perform this surgery. Your board-certified plastic surgeon should be able to discuss the available options with you in detail. The following are some of the types of facelifts:
Deep Plane Face Lift
The term deep plane refers to an anatomical space located between the SMAS layer and the deeper tissue in the face and neck. By entering into this deeper space, the SMAS (and the platysma) can be completely released from the underlying tissues, allowing for a more effective, tension-free suspension.
As its name implies, a deep plane facelift focuses on the face’s deep plane. The original concept was to operate beneath the supportive layer of the face, as opposed to just operating on the skin.
Recovery following a deep plane facelift usually involves some bruising and swelling around the re-positioned areas for the first few days. These symptoms will gradually disappear on their own.
Because the deep plane technique is accomplished in the layer that naturally exists in your face, there is minimal bruising and minimal pain after the procedure. Deep plane surgery also maintains more of the natural blood supply to the skin by not severing blood vessels between the muscle and skin, allowing for more rapid healing. SMAS- type facelifts lift under the skin and disrupt blood vessels. Because of this, bruising is greater in non-deep plane facelifts.
