Among the most popular cosmetic facial surgery procedures, the aim of a face and neck lift is to lift and stretch the relaxed or sagging tissues in the area, eliminating the excess skin and smoothing the age and expression lines that generally appear under the chin, at the sides of the mouth, on the cheeks and in the area around the eyes. A mini-facelift is a simple, non-invasive procedure designed to “rejuvenate” specific areas of the face. Modern lifting techniques allow for a natural result that is consistent with the proportions between the various parts of the face, neck and décolleté area.
Facelift and mini-facelift are procedures that offer immediate, lasting results: after an initial period of moderate swelling, lasting about a week, the patient can resume his or her usual activity. Patients should avoid direct exposure to the sun for at least a month, and must follow the doctor’s instructions carefully.
