What is a facelift?

A facelift is the same procedure that is sometimes referred to as the facelift. It is performed with an often very good effect in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and sagging, loose skin on the face.

The average patient is:

  • Between 45 and 60 years
  • Male or female
  • Tired of his wrinkled face

The surgery is performed under a combination of local anaesthesia and light sedation.

Incisions are made on the scalp and around the ear and slightly behind the neck in the hair. The skin and underlying tissue are lifted and excess skin is removed. The surgery itself takes only a few hours. It usually takes about 2–3 weeks before the patient can return to work.

Why a facelift is needed

Over the years, the elasticity of the skin decreases and the subcutaneous fat layer becomes thinner. This leads to wrinkling of the face, which many people are bothered by as it makes them look older and more tired. Today, there are many methods of wrinkle reduction. But the most effective is the facelift - for sagging skin and a high incidence of wrinkles.

How long do facelift results last?

How long the result lasts depends on your conditions. At your first meeting with us at Conturkliniken®, we will go through your expectations and what we can achieve. The final result of the procedure is visible after about 3-6 months.

By surgically tightening the skin, you can expect a lasting result. Compared to some other methods of wrinkle reduction, facelift is the one with the most lasting results. You could say that a facelift moves the facial skin back a few years. Take a look at our gallery of before and after pictures. facelift!
