Before the age of 45, these face changes can be successfully remedied by mere skin refreshment or youth preservation treatments by means of Botox or hyaluronan, or by using threads for the gentle lifting of the face.
Later, when the excess of skin is too large, only a facelift can bring back the currently lost, youthful facial contours by increasing the reduced fat and muscle tissue, as well as tightening the sagging skin. Many patients are afraid of a “mask effect” and facial identity loss after a facelift. The modern and gentle methods and techniques, which take into account the individuality of each face and which are adapted to each distinct anatomy, do not allow for such results.
Depending on the required correction, facelifts can be divided into lower, middle, upper and full facelift. Lower face lift also includes neck lift. You will be informed in detail about the operation process and post-operative measures. With only few exceptions, all operations are generally in-patient and performed under general anesthesia. The scars are barely visible and can only be detected when viewed closely. All sports activities should rest for a period of 4-6 weeks. After 2-3 weeks you should be ready to go out again.
An extensive consultation is prerequisite for any facelift due to the complexity of the operation. Due to years of experience, Dr. Matejic is able to offer each face an individual and adequate lifting, resulting in a natural-looking and long-lasting rejuvenation of the face. Every operation is preceded by a detailed analysis of the facial anatomy and the skin condition, so that the patient can adjust their expectations. With this procedure smoking is not permitted so as to avoid an increase in the complication rate.
