Facelift

lifting-facciale-uomo
As time goes by, the facial skin loses its original elasticity, favouring the appearance of wrinkles and small furrows. This is a very unpleasant situation for men, especially for those who see their body "aging" faster than their soul is doing.

Fortunately, it does exist a solution to the possible insecurity that can arise: Lifting, a series of procedures that eliminate imperfections due to age. This treatment invigorates the skin of the face, giving the eyes a new vitality and a new beauty.

The procedure

The procedure begins with a thorough examination of the patient. I have to make sure he is in good health, understand his needs and wishes and then identify the most appropriate solution.

At the end of the procedure I apply an elastic compression bandage on the neck and face, this should be worn for twodays. Six days after the surgery, however, I meet the patient to remove the stitches and to recommend a slightly compression bandage to be worn at night for about ten days.

During the convalescence it is important to rest from work and anything else that can strain the body. As for the scars, they will be hidden and will become almost invisible over time. And the results of all this? A firmer and smoother skin for a new inner and outer youth.

Frequently asked questions

Doubts or questions? It's only natural to have any! Below I try to answer the most frequent ones. For further clarification you can write to me at any time, I will answer as soon as possible.
01. Do you have to be fasting to support the operation?
Yes, since it is general anaesthesia, you should not eat or drink for about six hours before the operation.
02. Is it necessary to stop smoking before the operation?
Yes. In order to promote rapid recovery and reduce the risk of infection, smokers should refrain from smoking, starting at least two weeks before the operation.
03. Is it not recommended to take medication before treatment?
It is not recommended, but there is a possibility that it is necessary to stop taking them.
04. How many types of face-lifts can be used?
There are three lifting techniques: traditional, DEEP SMAS and Neck lifting. Traditional lifting: used in cases of evident skin laxity, it consists in treating the layers of tissue under the epidermis and on the muscles in order to eliminate skin excess and make sure that cheeks and jaw are well defined. Once the administration of general anaesthesia is completed, I make an incision along the hairline continuing towards the front of the ears until the part behind the auricle. I then separate the skin from the underlying tissues, to remove excess fat, consequently, I place it back on the face, removing any excess. In this way, the face lifts up and assumes the new position. Sub SMAS lifting: used when the tissues around the cheekbones start to fall out, creating nose-labial furrows and resulting skin laxity mainly in the central area of the face, it consists in actin deeply on the muscles of the face. It is a long and complex procedures not always necessary. Neck lift : I pull the skin only with incisions in the back of the ears so that the skin and muscles in the neck are pulled and reinforced. Nowadays there is also another way to rejuvenate the face, this new techniques consists in injecting fat and stem cells in the face. The procedure can be done as a local day case and it is becoming very popular.
