Lazer Facelift

HOW IS LASER FACE LIFT PERFORMED ?

When compared to conventional face lifting surgeries, laser assisted face lifting procedures take much shorter time and provide more comfort both for the aesthetic surgeon and the patient.

WHY IS LASER FACE LIFT PREFERRED ?

As a result of aging or being exposed to sunlight, you can observe that your face has more and more wrinkles by each passing year along with the surfacing dark spots. Laser lipolysis procedure and the laser facelift performed afterwards are the best methods for patients desiring a refreshed, natural look while protecting the quality of their skin. With this procedure, your skin will gain a fresh, healthy and a youthful appearance. Laser lights are applied in a variety of medical treatments.

The intensity of the signs of aging on our faces is why laser facelift procedure is more extensively preferred on the facial area rather than on other body parts.

UNDER WHICH CONDITIONS IT IS PREFERRED AND HOW IS PERFORMED ?

What makes a person look old and/or overweight are skin laxity in the facial and neck areas, loss of subcutaneous elasticity, loss of the sharp jaw line contour, loose appearance around the chin, deep lines in the corners of the mouth, and a loose or plump jowl. With the Laser Facelift operations, the patient gains a firmer look with the elimination of droopiness of mid and lower facial and neck skin is eliminated, the fat deposition under and around the chin and the resolution of looseness and sagginess of the cheeks. Before the procedure, we first liquefy the fat tissue with the probes that we use for laser lipolysis, and then apply a tightening effect on the top layer of the skin.

Afterwards, laser energy at a certain wave length and frequency is applied to subcutaneous tissues of mid and lower facial and neck areas (adipose tissues, fascia tissues, ligaments and muscle tissues) with thin laser cannulas with a special laser probe to achieve lasting results more easily and comfortably. Laser facelift procedures are performed to eliminate the aged, tired and wrinkled appearance caused by the loss of collagen tissues in the whole facial area and by laxity developing particularly in the lower, mid facial, and neck areas due to time and gravity. When compared with traditional face-lifting surgeries, this is a quiet comfortable and pleasing operation with its duration, and short periods of recovery and going back to social life.

- At the same session, the spots where a filling effect is desired may be highlighted with injections of the patient’s own fat tissues enriched with applicable stem cells.

HOW LONG DOES THE LASER FACELIFT PROCEDURE TAKE ?

Laser facelift procedure takes about 1.5 - 2 hours under local anesthesia. The patient meanwhile is able to talk to us in a slightly sleepy manner or listen to music and relax. Is there an Age Restriction for Laser Facelift?

There is no age restriction for the procedure, but an overall physical well-being that is fit to undergo such an operation is required. Laser facelift procedure is a method easily applied to patients who are even over 70, as we do not use general anesthesia.

LASER FACELIFT POSTOPERAVITE CARE

The procedure is performed under full sedation and local anesthesia. With the use of laser, post-op complications such as bleeding, nerve damage and other significant discomforts are almost completely prevented. Therefore, our patients go through a lot safer and more trouble-free post-op period when compared with conventional face-lifting surgeries.

Our patients are discharged on the same day with only a small dressing. They may resume their daily routines the next day and may remove the surgical tapes 3 days later and put on their make-up. They can participate in sports activities and continue with their social lives. When do we see the results/effects of a Laser Facelift?

When the dressing is removed in 2 or 3 days, our patients can see the results more clearly, as there is minimal bruising or swelling thanks to the laser. Some edema is sure to develop during the first week, but with intermittent use of a facelift compression garment, we can get rid of it within 10 days.

WILL THERE BE ANY INCISION-LIKE VISIBLE SCAR ?

Laser technology allows us to make scars appear vague and only visible for a very short time after the procedure when compared to the conventional face-lifting surgery. We have a hidden incision of about 4-5 cm starting from the front ear and extending to the back.

WHAT IS THE SUCCESS RATE OF LASER FACELIFT PROCEDURES ?

Besides being easy and painless for patients, this procedure gives you back the face you had 5-10 years ago. Rather than a completely different face you are not familiar with, you will see in the mirror the youthful, natural face you had when you were younger. The conventional face lifting operations, however, are performed under general anesthesia where almost the entire face structure is opened, cut, sutured and lifted.
