Facelift for a facial rejuvenation

Madrid | Zurich

Face and neck lift interventions are, undoubtedly, the most effective procedures for a facial rejuvenation. Rhytidectomy surgical corrections have significantly evolved in recent years, adding new techniques such as facial fat grafting and peeling, thus achieving more natural, harmonious and balanced results. PD Dr. Richard Fakin’s extensive career and academic research have made his clinics in Madrid and Zurich renowned for their excellency in integral facial rejuvenation surgery.

Our face and neck lift interventions deliver long-lasting results and high levels of satisfaction among our patients. They can be carried out as stand-alone interventions or combined with others such as eyelid lift, eyebrow lift, forehead lift, lobuloplasty, rhinoplasty and chin augmentation using implants.

During the pre-surgery consultation a thorough analysis of the face volume, anatomy and bone architecture is carried out.

Which facelift technique is best for each patient?

Dermis type, age and anatomical measurements define which facelift procedure is the most appropriate in each case. At PD Dr. Richard Fakin’s clinics, a rigorous analysis of these key factors is conducted, in order to decide if a minimal scar facelift or an omega-shape scar facelift is best suited. Possible changes to the platysma muscle (neck area) are considered to reshape the jawbone line and chin area, with the aim of optimising its aesthetics.

Depending on the patient’s anatomy and wishes, a complete face and/or neck lift, a mini-lift or complementary procedures will be performed.

How is a facelift procedure performed?

The surgery starts with a subcutaneous infiltration using state-of-the-art technology, allowing for a shorter recovery period, less swelling, bruising and less general discomfort. A liposuction in the lower facial area and jawbone is usually performed at this stage.

In the following step, we dissect the plane below or underneath the superficial musculo-aponeurotic system (SMAS), to liberate the skin from the muscle and continue the facelift process by reshaping the SMAS until the desired shape is achieved and excess skin is resected.

Finally, after the skin has been readapted, additional interventions can be performed, such as blepharoplasty, chemical peel, lip lift and lipofilling (fat transfer).

How long do the face and neck lift procedure results last?

This an intervention with a very high success rate among our patients. Results remain unaltered for about 10 years. However, it is important to advise that the dermis ageing process will continue after the intervention. To extend the lifting’s results and enhance the skin quality, we offer our patients a medical cosmetic line of products and state-of-the-art technology in aesthetic medicine.
