Procedure details


Facelift is a surgical procedure that helps to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck area. The process involves:

  • Removing excess skin
  • Tightening the underlying muscles and tissues
  • Re-draping the skin over the face and neck to give a more youthful, refreshed appearance
The facelift is usually performed under general and local anesthesia. Most facelift scars are well-hidden and fade over time. We also perform the SMAS lifting, pulling the more profound layers under the skin, which allows for a better lifting of the skin and a more permanent effect. The facelift cost is up to 50% lower than in other European countries.

The significant benefit of the mini facelift means the downtime of a complete facelift can be avoided while still achieving similar results. The mini facelift is the best way to deal with sagging cheek fat pads, sagging muscles, and skin.

The SMAS layer is often what is undertaken to achieve elevation and correction of the jowls. This has the effect of producing a defined jawline.

Once the SMAS muscle is tightened and the desired contour achieved, the excess amount of overlying skin is removed. This is in effect a tailoring procedure.
