It is a natural manifestation of the aging process that the skin slackens and hangs, and wrinkles are formed on the face. The time when these manifestations become apparent is individual, within thirty and fifty years of age. It depends, among others, on the type of the skin, the genes, the occupation, the solar radiation effects. This can be reduced by a plastic surgery operation, professionally called face lifting (or Facelift, with its variation Facelift SMASS).
Facelift surgery in detail
The Facelift cosmetic surgery abroad in the Czech Republic is carried out under a combination of local anaesthesia and general intravenous anaesthesia. The surgical incision leads from the hairy part of the temporal bone down past the earlobe, and continues to the crease behind the auricle.
The scar resulting after Facelift in Prague is then only noticeable as a discreet line in the area of the temporal bone and behind the auricle.
We also carry out, almost on regular basis, the SMASS lifting, pulling the deeper layers under the skin, which allows for attaining a better lifting of the skin and a more permanent effect.
Post-surgery Care after Facelift
Hospitalisation lasts for two days and the patient leaves the plastic surgery clinic with a bandaged head after Facelift in Prague.
The stitches are absorbent, so there is no need to remove them. Oedema and bruises may persist for 2-3 weeks. During this time, it is necessary to avoid physical strain and unnecessary bending.
Compression garment - 5th day - The elastic bandage is taken off on the 5th day after Facelift cosmetic surgery whereupon the hair can be washed carefully. The bandage is not necessary afterwards.
Office work - 5th day - Office work is possible on the 5th day after the removal of the bandage, but nevertheless, the Facelift patient must take into account the persistent bruises and oedema.
Pressure massage - 14th day - Pressure massages of the scars begin 14 days after the Facelift cosmetic surgery abroad. We press the scar with a finger for 30 seconds, release, and move the finger to another place on the scar. These massages must be repeated several times a day.
