How Does a Facelift Work & How Long Do Facelifts Last?


August 25, 2023

Facelifts for women and men are much more common these days, as the surgical process to lift the forehead, raise eyebrows, tighten the jawline, and smooth neck folds is exceptionally advanced. Is a face lift plastic surgery? Yes, a surgical facelift that delivers long lasting results is considered cosmetic or plastic surgery. On average, the results from a plastic surgery facelift can last 10 years or more. A full facelift provides the most dramatic and long-lasting results. 

Why Should I Have A Facelift? 

There are a number of reasons why women and men of all ages have plastic surgery on the face.

One type of facial surgery is reconstructive: this type of face surgery is often to repair or reconstruct facial problems caused by trauma (e.g., an accident), disease, or a medical condition for example. 

The other type of facial surgery is the aesthetic facelift: this type of cosmetic face surgery is performed for several reasons including: 

  • Enhancing facial symmetry 
  • Perfecting face shape
  • Facial sculpting
  • Anti-aging 
  • Reduce sagging skin
  • Tighten loose skin 
  • Diminish look of deep wrinkles
  • Smooth skin texture
  • Tighten underlying face muscles
  • Remove excess facial fat

The #1 reason people want to have a facelift is to look younger and more youthful. Whatever your reason for wanting to have a facelift, Este Medical in Turkey offers 5-star surgical facelift treatments that will improve and enhance your appearance for many, many years.

Where To Get A Facelift? 

You are ready to have a facelift, but you don’t know where to have face lift surgery. Let us give you some tips and advice on how to find the best facelift medical clinic. 

You can have a facelift in Turkey! There are good reasons why men and women have facelift surgery in Istanbul, Turkey. The cost of facelift in Turkey is much more affordable than in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, or Berlin for example. 

It has been reported that over 1.2 million foreigners visited Turkey for medical procedures in 2022 — the majority of those trips to Turkey were for cosmetic face and hair transplant surgeries. Traveling to get ‘work done’ is no longer considered high risk, with online reviews and reputable sites reporting client feedback, it is much safer and easier for visitors to evaluate and choose a cosmetic clinic in Turkey. 

When it comes to the price, having facelift surgery in Turkey is considered more affordable compared to the USA or Europe for instance. The results of a facelift surgical procedure can last up to 10 years or longer! Send us a message through our website to arrange a facelift consultation.

Here’s How To Find The Best Facelift Provider 

When considering face lift surgery (i.e., rhytidectomy), it is important to: 

  • Do your research and ask questions
  • Visit medical clinic websites, check for client testimonials 
  • Check online reviews and cosmetic clinic ratings 
  • Book a facelift with a reputable Turkey clinic or surgery 

Here are common questions people have about getting a facelift. 

How Long Does A Face Lift Take?

A facelift generally takes 2 to 6 hours. The procedure can take longer if other cosmetic procedures (e.g., rhinoplasty, neck lift) are done at the same time. Depending on which clinic you go to and how in-depth your facelift surgery is, you may have either a local anesthetic and sedatives, or general anesthesia. In most cases you will be free to leave the surgery the day of your procedure. 

Does A Face Lift Include The Neck? 

That is a great question to ask. Sometimes the neck area is considered a separate treatment area in regards to facial treatments. It is best to ask when you have a facelift consultation. It is possible to combine a face lift and neck lift during the same surgery. 

How Does A Face Lift Work?

A surgical facelift is a cosmetic procedure that targets the visible signs of aging on the face to help give your face a fresh new appearance. Facial lifting and tightening surgery can remove sagging skin along the cheeks and jawline (i.e., jowls), as well as improve the overall shape of the face (e.g., facial sculpting, fat removal). After a facelift, the skin will be firmer and smoother.

How Is A Facelift Performed? 

Most facelift surgeries follow the same method, and often have the same goals, there might be some variation in surgical technique and skill level between individual surgeons. For the most part, incisions will be made around the ears and up into the hairline so the surgeon can surgically lift the skin from facial muscles and fat, to move and reposition the skin higher up the face — this lifting and moving technique is essentially why we call this treatment a facelift.

During a facelift, excess skin and fat may be removed, as well deeper tissues and muscle may be tightened or repositioned for example. After the surgery is completed, the incisions are sealed with surgical sutures and bandages are applied.
