Our skin changes as we get older. It loses its stiffness and radiance, becoming loose and saggy, which appears most prominently in the face. Factors such as stress, sunlight, genetics, and other environmental factors can affect this process. Saggy facial skin is usually accompanied by wrinkles and deep lines and grooves under the eyelids and the lower and middle areas of the face. Laugh lines also become deeper as you get older. A specialist can alleviate this problem by performing a facelift to replenish the skin’s fresh look and youthful radiance.
The Facelift Procedure
A facelift can be performed in two ways, surgically or non-surgically. Non-surgical facelift methods include fat injection, gel injection, laser skin resurfacing, lift using a device and RF, thread lifting, and HIFU therapy. The results of a non-surgical facelift will not be on par with its surgical counterpart but will delay the loosening of the skin.
In a surgical facelift, after using anesthesia, small incisions are made in the sides, and if needed, the top and bottom of the face. Then, the surgeon changes the positions of the face’s muscles and pulls them higher. Excess fat and skin are then removed and the incisions are closed and dressed.
Bruising, pain, and feeling like your muscles are stretched are all normal during the first few days after the surgery and will be gone within a few days. Satisfaction rates of surgical facelifts are usually higher than those of non-surgical facelifts.
Facelift in Iran
There are numerous specialized centers for cosmetic treatment in Iran. In addition, the usage of up-to-date equipment and devices for cosmetic purposes such as facelifts is becoming more and more common, allowing doctors to provide cosmetic treatment services better suited to every individual patient’s needs. In Iran, a facelift is becoming a popular procedure, so much so that it has become one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the country. The combination of the low prices of surgery and cosmetic procedures performed with the hands of capable and highly skilled Iranian specialists has made Iran, relative to other countries, a much better choice and one of the best choices for having a facelift and any other cosmetic procedure.
A facelift in Iran can be performed by a trained cosmetic specialist and plastic surgery subspecialist. Numerous specialized hospitals and several cosmetic clinics in Iran provide skin lifting services as well as postoperative care and measures to their patients. Procedures such as non-surgical lift with a device can be performed in the clinics of doctors with the required apparatus using local anesthesia and as an outpatient procedure. Surgery, however, requires hospitalization and general anesthesia.
