Face Lift

Service Description

As we age, the effects of gravity, sun exposure and stress of daily life are seen in our faces. Deep furrows between the nose and mouth are formed; cheeks fall; fat and wrinkles appear around the neck. A facelift cannot stop this process; however, what it can do is stop the clock, improving the most visible signs of aging, tensing the muscles of the face, removing excess fat and redistributing the skin of the face and neck. The facelift can be done alone or associated with other procedures such as blepharoplasty or rhinoplasty. The forehead lift corrects drooping eyebrows and forehead wrinkles and eyebrows.

The facelift or "lifting" is a procedure designed to tighten facial and neck skin to reduce wrinkles or folds. The bone structure of the face, the muscles and skin texture suffers involution over the years. In addition there are hereditary factors, eating habits, stress, prolonged sun exposure, etc., which substantially alter the signs of aging facial. Facelift usually treats the skin of the neck and cheeks, but sometimes also corrected forehead wrinkles and lowering of the eyebrows.

Facelift can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia and sedation, depending on each particular case (more or less extensive surgery, personal wishes of the patient, etc.).
Incisions of this operation are performed on the scalp in the frontal and temporal regions around the ears and end in the next to the neck area. Through these incisions, the surgeon makes a more or less extensive skin detachment, in order to be able to get the same tension. Using the same approach, the surgeon can reduce fat deposits and tighten muscles that have become flaccid, giving the face a firmer appearance.

After the intervention, which usually lasts between 2 and 4 hours, depending on the extent of it and if treatment of the eyelids, liposuction, etc. is done, some drains are placed to reduce the possibility of bruising and reduce inflammation.


The ideal candidates to undergo a facelift are those women or men whose face and neck begin to "fall", but whose skin still has some elasticity. Most patients are between 40 and 60, but can also be successfully performed between 70 and 80 years. A facelift can make you look younger and to increase self-confidence, but will not provide a completely different look, nor can restore your health and vitality.
