With regard to issues concerning the types of medical and aesthetic procedures and the way they are performed, the aim is to highlight the value of knowledge, experience and strict professionalism for classical facial plastic surgery. The lifting (wrinkle removal) is the leading procedure of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, but perhaps the most misunderstood. Wanting to share with you my personal twenty years of experience as a Plastic Surgeon, I am sharing with you the details of a face lift.
THE TRAPS OF BEAUTY
I often read in magazines various new names for techniques with creams, injectable materials (liquid lifting, baby lifting, vampire lifting, etc.) or even for machines that try to simulate the invasive lift but have nothing to do with it, neither as a procedure nor as a result. People with over-inflated lips, cheeks, cheekbones, etc. are also shown in the media. and comments are made about the “failed” lifting of these. The invasive lifting has nothing to do with them, which are usually the result of injectable applications, such as fat, hyaluronic acid, hydroxyapatite, etc., to an excessive degree, creating a not so beautiful aesthetic image.
OUR PICTURE IN THE… SURGERY
The surgical lifting is an operation that must be performed by a specialized plastic surgeon, in an organized clinic and after full pre-operative check-up. It is performed under intoxication (neuroleptoanesthesia) and local anesthesia or, for those who wish, under general anesthesia. It can be combined with other procedures such as blepharoplasty (removal of bags from the eyes). It is usually followed by an overnight stay in the clinic and avoidance of social events for 7-10 days because of the swelling.
THE EFFECT IS MEASURED
When there is the right indication, i.e., sagging of the skin on the face and neck, usually at the age of 45-50 years in both women and men, the results are excellent. This operation can also be limited – if one wishes – only to the restoration of neck relaxation. Contraindications are some diseases and heavy smoking.
So, is lifting the top surgery and the most important surgical procedure in the world?The lifting is the top lifting procedure and the only solution for the effective treatment of loose skin on the face and neck.. So let the lifting king sit on his throne again.
