What is Face lift?
A facelift may be suitable when the elasticity of the skin decreases and the subcutaneous layer becomes out as one ages. The result is flabby and wrinkled skin, which clearly shows on the lower part of the face and neck. External factors such as smoking, diet, alcohol, and tanning also contribute to skin aging and make your face look more tired. With a facelift, we combat this effectively, and you get a smoother, fresher-looking face. A facelift has an especially great impact on the chin and neck. The skin will be noticeably smoother. Wrinkles at the corners of the mouth can also be treated with dermabrasion, peeling, or lasers.
Many patients choose to combine facelifts with eyelid surgery, forehead lifts, or liposuction of the chin. Regardless of the combination, we always aim for our treatments to give you a more youthful and fresher look.

How is this surgery performed?
During a facelift, our plastic surgeons make an incision along with the temple, as well as in front and behind the ears. The incision is therefore practically invisible. The skin is detached from the underlying structures and muscles are stretched backward and upwards, which allows for the skin to be draped into a new location. During the operation, you get light anesthetics and won’t feel any pain.
Following a surgery
Before you go home after the surgery we remove the first bandage and replace it with a new one. This bandage will remain in place during all hours until it is time to revisit us after a week. The first few days following the surgery can be painful, but the pain can effectively be alleviated with painkillers, which we of course provide. Bruising and swelling will sustain for 1 -2 weeks and then gradually disappear. You must keep your head elevated for a while and therefore it is recommended to add a few extra pillows under your head when you sleep. You must also only eat soft food for a while and be careful not to expose the face to intense cold since the cheeks have temporarily reduced sensation after surgery. Always listen to your body’s signals.
It might take up to 6 months before the results of the facelift can be evaluated, but after the removal of the stitches, you will see a noticeable improvement. Despite this, it is important to have realistic expectations. We will of course tell you this before the operation is performed.
