Facelift Surgery in Cyprus
Facelift or Rhytidectomy is a cosmetic surgical face treatment that aims at improving the signs of aging on the skin. Our experienced doctors use advanced techniques for natural-looking results and invisible, hidden scars. The recovery from a facelift surgery takes time, but patients understand that it is so worth it after they see their new, youthful and fresh look.
A full or mini facelift focuses on the middle and lower areas of the face as well as the full or upper neck respectively. Facelift surgery in Cyprus does not treat the eyes or eyebrows.
As we get older our skin loses its elasticity and volume creating a saggy look. Facial aging with loose skin and visible lines and wrinkles are the most popular reasons for someone to have facelift surgery.
Full Facelift Surgery in Cyprus
A full facelift usually addresses the mid and lower face, for example, the cheeks, jawline, and full neck areas. A facelift is most commonly performed on people between the age of 40 and 60 years old to treat wrinkles and saggy skin.
During the facelift surgery in Cyprus, our surgeon removes the excess skin from the neck or face. The muscles under the skin may also be repositioned or lifted and fat may be removed if necessary. Then the doctor smoothens the skin out by lifting it and making stitches in places where they cannot be visible.
Surgery time: 2 – 8 hours
Results last around 10 to 15 years or more
Anesthetic: General anesthesia
Downtime: 4 – 6 weeks
Mini Facelift Surgery in Cyprus
A mini facelift surgery in Cyprus is not as invasive as a full facelift, and it is usually performed on younger people in their late-30s who start noticing the first signs of aging. A mini facelift can also be performed as a second facelift for people who have had a full facelift.
A mini facelift addresses the upper neck and jowls. During a mini facelift the surgeons remove less excess skin so that the lift is not as visible as with a full facelift. The incisions and stitches are made in front of the ear. The scars of these incisions gradually become one with the rest of the skin and can easily be hidden with hair.
Surgery time: 2 – 3 hours
Results last around 5 to 10 years
Anesthetic: General anesthesia
Downtime: 3 – 5 weeks
Each patient is different and healing time can differ from one person to another. Our suggestion is that you start exercising after 4 – 6 weeks. Remember to listen to your body and not rush things.
Yes, many patients choose to do two or more plastic surgeries at the same time instead of going through the experience of general anesthesia and the recovery twice. The combination of a facelift and an eyelid or brow lift surgery is very common.
After your facelift surgery, you will experience discomfort and some pain as a result of the swelling. Your doctor will provide you with the appropriate medication so that you can be relieved of any pain.
Each patient’s case is unique and different. The choice of facelift depends on how severe a patient’s problem is. Usually, patients that go for a mini facelift in Cyprus are younger and have fewer wrinkles or loose skin. However, if someone with a significant problem chooses a mini facelift, they might not get the results they were hoping for since a mini facelift is not as invasive as a full facelift.
