Plastic Surgery

Face and neck lifting

By this term we mean the surgical technique by which the loose tissues of the face and neck are straightened and fixed in a new position, resulting in a younger and firmer skin. The lifting does not correct the forehead wrinkles or the drooping of the eyelids and browbones, but only the area from the cheekbones and below. The operation is performed under general anesthesia and is often combined with blepharoplasty. Complete swelling of the face subsides in 3-6 months.
