Facelift is an aesthetic surgery that involves lifting up and pulling back the skin to give a younger looking appearance to the face. This operation is a great way to revert back the effect of time on your face. At Vantage Clinic, we can help you achieve the look that you have been dreaming of.
As we age, the muscles on our face weakens and our skin gives in to the effect of gravity. For most people, these signs of aging are undesirable and something that they want to reduce as much as possible. This is why facelift surgery has become one of the most popular aesthetic procedures over the years.
If you are concerned about the signs of aging, looking into facelift surgery in Turkey can be a great idea. You can regain your youthful and plump looking skin through facelift. Our qualified and experienced aesthetic surgeons in Istanbul, Turkey offer different facelift options tailored to your needs.
There are two different popular options for skin lift; mini and normal. Your surgeon will suggest either of these options depending on your expectations, the degree of skin laxity and your specific conditions.
Even though the definition of a mini facelift varies greatly, it is essentially a less invasive version of normal facelift. Much smaller incisions are used to get rid of some excess skin and tighten the sagging areas.
Normal or full facelift aims to improve the overall appearance of the face by removing excess and sagging skin and reconstructing the weakened muscles around the face.
Facelift operation is performed under general anaesthesia. Once the anaesthetic kicks in and you are ready for the operation, your surgeon will start by necessary incisions. These incisions can be done around the ears and extend into the scalp. If skin tightening around the jawline is necessary, another incision under the chin can be created.
Your surgeon will carefully separate the skin from underlying fat and muscle tissue to remove any excess fat and tighten the muscles. Then the skin will be pulled back to get rid of the saggy look. Any excess skin tissue will be trimmed.
Once the desired appearance is achieved, your surgeon will close the incisions carefully. To protect the vulnerable areas, your surgeon will place a light bandage around your head which will usually be removed the next day.

A suitable candidate for facelift should have visible sagging and loose soft tissue. Saggy look along the jawline or neck bands are usually good indicators that you are suitable for a facelift. If you are having to renew your facial fillers often, you might also be a good candidate for facelift sugery.
As it is with any other surgical operation, you should also be in good health and have realistic expectations from the facelift surgery. For a more detailed evaluation you can consult with your surgeon.
Turkey is a hot location for any aesthetic operation including facelift surgery. Our qualified and experienced surgeons at Vantage Clinic in Turkey can offer you a high quality and safe facelift operation for a much lower price than in your country.
The normal facelift costs in Turkey varies between $4,500 and $6,000.
If you are considering to get a mini facelift, you will find that the average mini facelift costs in Turkey is around $5,000.
Because a facelift affects the structure of soft and muscle tissue, it offers long-lasting results. A full facelift can last as long as 20 years while a mini facelift can last up to 6-10 years.
However, don’t forget that a facelift is not a permanent solution and the process of aging will start to show its mark in time. The longevity of your facelift will strictly depend on your age and how your skin ages.
The recovery process after a facelift takes around 3-4 weeks. The bandages your surgeon placed can be removed the next day after your surgery. Applying ice packs for the first few days can be a great help for the initial swelling. Pay attention not to bend forward to minimize the pressure on your head.
Any stitches will be removed within the 1–2-week period. The swelling should noticeably go down after 2 weeks and you will likely feel normal enough to go back to your daily activities after a week of your operation. However, you should avoid strenuous activities for approximately 4 weeks.
