DESCRIPTION:

Facelift is a cosmetic surgery treatment that is performed by removing fat from the abdomen, hips, buttocks and other parts of the body, which is infiltrated into areas of the face that need to be fleshed out and shaped.

Facelift may be used in cases where a facial rejuvenation is desired and the profile of some areas such as cheekbones, lips, nose-genital furrows, chin, mandible, localized atrophy are to be corrected.

ANESTHESIA:

The operation is generally performed under local anesthesia with sedation in day hospital; only in certain cases and at the specific request of the patient, the Facelift can take place under general anesthesia with overnight stay.

HEALING:

7-10 days.

SURGICAL INTERVENTION

After a local anesthetic, fat is aspirated from the patient through a thin cannula from a specific area of the body (abdomen, inner thigh, gluteal fold, hips, etc.). As the dimensions of the cannula are particularly small, it will not be necessary to resort to stitches. The fat taken is suitably treated in order to free it of impurities and injected at the level of the area of the face to be treated. Being an autologous material (ie coming from the same organism), it does not generate allergies or discards. This type of intervention can be used to modify the contours of the face, selectively enlarging some areas; correct localized defects and atrophies. Facelift can be used to correct the nasolabial region in association with blepharoplasty and face lifting.

HEALING

The session ends with the application of some small patches, which will be removed after 3-4 days. A slight swelling may appear on the treated area which disappears in a few days. Post-operative checks will take place after 1 week, 1 month, 3 months and 6 months.
