Facelift Surgery

What does Facelift Surgery consist in?

Facelift surgery is a cosmetic intervention aimed at combating facial ageing. To eliminate wrinkles and imperfections from the face and neck the skin is stretched by means of minimally invasive surgery. It is a cosmetic procedure carried out under general anaesthetic and does not require hospitalisation.

Facelift surgery is one of the best cosmetic procedures for resolving overall ageing of the patient’s skin. Some areas of the face require other complementary interventions as well as a facelift, especially in order to eliminate smaller wrinkles, marks and imperfections. The most appropriate treatment for each patient is decided by the facial aesthetics expert during the first visit.

Facelift surgery is performed to:

  • Eliminate deeper wrinkles on the entire face and neck.
  • Eliminate furrows and lines on the lips, chin, forehead and neck.
  • Minimise so-called “crow’s feet”. These wrinkles are usually quite fine and to eliminate them completely the facelift needs to be complemented with some other aesthetic treatment, such as Botox.
  • Eliminate deep wrinkles around the eyelids.

Orthognathic surgery and the “facelift effect”

The maxillofacial surgeons at the Maxillofacial Institute always consider function and aesthetics as inseparable elements. In orthognathic surgery, in addition to improving the patient’s health, the improvement in their facial aesthetics is always accompanied by a rejuvenating effect, known as the “facelift effect”.
