I couldn't have chosen a better clinic. The fact it was 65% cheaper than the prices I'd been quoted the in UK and the extra help they provide is just incredible. My surgery went perfectly and they removed 10lbs of skin from my stomach and waist. I had everything I needed in my hospital room and the nurses are so attentive, kind and available 24 hours a day.

Before and after surgery I felt like I was very well taken care of! The nurses were very compassionate, and made sure I had what I needed - and that it went well! I don't think I've experienced that it's so good in Norwegian hospitals even..I will definitely recommend the clinic further, if anyone is considering it, but is insecure.

These people went above and beyond, soooo much more polite than UK surgeons, these people actually care about how you are, check up on you and answer all the questions you have. After check up a week later, my surgeon carried my luggage to my taxi. Fussy in ways you'll never know and if ever the need for surgery again, I'll go there. Anyone I know, I'll recommend over any others I've heard of.

Surgery went good and I was so happy with my stay at the clinic with extremely helpful and friendly nurses caring for me 24/7. The clinic was so fresh and I was served delicious meals. Another bonus was their transportation team who picked me up/dropped me off at the airport, back and forth from the hotel to the clinic etc. It was great not having to worry about any logistics, since it was all taken care of.

Our clinic works with medical professionals of highest education and experience level and uses the same materials as the clinics in Western Europe.

Facelift surgery

What is a facelift?

A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a procedure of facial rejuvenation which reduces the wrinkles that form in the face and neck areas and are caused by the natural ageing process. Time is merciless; fortunately, a facelift can help people who are dissatisfied with their appearance to turn back time.

Although there are different facelift techniques, they all have several steps in common. Facelift can be performed under general or local anaesthesia, depending on the individual case of each patient. The surgeon makes incisions along the hairline as well as along the ears. Skin is then separated from the facial muscles and pulled to remove the wrinkles and excess facial skin. Deeper facial tissue and fat can be redistributed for better aesthetic results. Afterwards, face is bandaged to minimise swelling and bruising. Patients are usually discharged on the day of the surgery, however, in some cases a longer monitoring of the patient is required.

Who is a proper candidate?

As with all surgeries it is of high importance to be in a good overall health in the first place. However, the condition of the skin is specifically important for facelift surgeries. Skin should be flexible and elastic. These features might be affected by alcohol consumption and smoking. If this is the case, patients should consult health specialists about a realistic outcome of a facelift.

People with chronic illnesses such as diabetes, heart and blood clotting disorders are eligible for the procedure. However, such conditions can affect a person’s suitability for undergoing anaesthesia and can also disrupt wound healing during the recovery process. It is important to discuss the particular case with a surgeon so that any complications can be prevented and the desired look achieved. The facelift procedure can and should be adjusted to bring the most satisfying results.

Facelift techniques

There are several techniques and types of facelift, and the exact choice should be specifically tailored to fit the individual case. The patient and the surgeon should discuss the scope of the procedure, its degree of invasiveness, and how dramatic the results are expected to be so that the best technique can be chosen to fulfil the patient’s expectations.

The minimal access cranial suspension (MACS) lift, also known as short-scar surgery, is more suitable for patients with good skin tone and limited tissue sagging. It is performed under local anaesthesia and the scar is kept minimal by making incisions in front of each ear from the hairline to the earlobe. MACS facelift is designed to affect the lower and middle thirds of the face. As it is not possible to remove a lot of skin during this procedure it is usually recommended for younger patients with good skin elasticity. It is considerably less undermining; however, as facial muscles are not tightened the results are not as long-lasting as with the SMAS technique.

The superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) facelift is better suited for patients with moderate to severe laxity and sagging of the facial muscles, ligaments and skin. These signs of ageing appear when facial ligaments lose their elasticity and can no longer protect facial skin from gravitational effects. During SMAS facelift the surgeon will tighten the underlying facial muscles using multi-vector pull, i.e. pulling the tissues in several directions for the best contour of cheeks and jawline. Any excess skin will be removed. Note that this procedure requires general anaesthesia. And the results are much more lasting than after the MACS lift.

The deep plane lift technique is designed to fix jowls, “turkey gobbler neck”, and laugh lines. The surgeon makes an incision around the ears, separates the musculoaponeurotic system and repositions it by plicating and tightening loose muscles of the neck and the middle part of the face. Deep plane lift allows for an extremely natural appearance and long-lasting results. However, it is associated with a higher risk of complications.

What is the difference between a deep plane facelift and a SMAS facelift?

The deep plane facelift technique is sort of a little step forward from the classical SMAS facelift, but the main idea still remains the same – SMAS layer release and lifting. Therefore, if one asks whether the deep plane facelift still is a SMAS facelift, the answer is yes. There is no other way to perform a facelift than manipulating with the SMAS layer. The only difference is that the deep plane facelift is more precise and focuses nearly only on deeper layers of the skin where the actual problem lies, barely raising the superficial layer (i.e. subcutaneous tissue). It is a straight-to-the-point facelift that does little tissue damage near the skin surface, which results in less bruising and swelling, as well as in less downtime after the surgery.

Facelift types

Depending on the scope of the procedure, facelifts are grouped into classical, full, neck, mid and forehead facelifts. Your doctor will choose a procedure or suggest a combination of a few so that it best fits your needs and expectations.

A classical facelift involves cuts along the hairline and around the ears. Skin is pulled back and the facelift mainly improves the appearance of the jawline and cheeks. Various modifications of a classical facelift allow the surgeon to tailor the procedure to the specific needs of each individual.

A full facelift includes improvement of the neck, jawline, cheeks, and forehead. Full facelift could be suggested for patients with heavy skin sagging as it might be the best option for those desiring a dramatic change in appearance.

A neck lift is suggested for patients with problematic areas on the neck and the chin. It will remove any excess skin and create a more defined contour resulting in a much more youthful appearance.

The mid-facelift, or cheek lift, is an elevation of the cheeks which transforms them from deflated to youthful and prominent. This procedure can also aid in reducing hollowness under the eyes, however, it mainly affects the middle part of the face and is not a substitute to facelift procedures.

A forehead lift improves the look of a person’s forehead (e.g. “worry lines” and “frown lines”) and is usually not included in the traditional facelift. By lifting the forehead skin wrinkles are smoothened and “hooding” over the eyes is reduced.

A facial fat transfer can be beneficial for people dissatisfied with hollow areas beneath the eyes, sunken cheeks, brows, temples or chin.

Preparation

A patient might have very specific expectations for the outcome of the surgery, therefore a thorough discussion with a surgeon is necessary in order to select the most suitable method.

Skin condition greatly depends on nutrition. Therefore, the patient should ensure that he or she is consuming enough proteins (which are crucial for wound healing) and vitamins such as zinc, vitamin A and C, which are important for the synthesis of collagen and for maintaining skin integrity. Note that vitamin, mineral and protein malnutrition impairs all stages of immune response, wound healing and tissue production.

It is essential to talk to your doctor a couple of weeks before the surgery as you might be instructed to stop taking medications such as aspirin or other blood-thinning drugs

Smoking and alcohol consumption should be avoided one month before and after the surgery so that it does not affect the healing process by restricting blood circulation.

Medical examination and a review of medical history is an essential step before the surgery. In order to determine the best facelift type a surgeon will examine the patient’s face and will discuss the possible strategies. Patients will have to undergo any necessary lab tests, including a blood work, a urine test, ECG (electrocardiogram), X-rays, or others. The surgeon will explain in detail the plan of the surgery and recovery.

In order to prevent regurgitation during the surgery an empty stomach is required for anyone undergoing general anaesthesia. Therefore, patients should not eat or drink one day before the surgery.

Facelift and Eyelid surgery

For even more expressed results it is possible to combine a facelift with other procedures, including neck lifteyelid lift or rhinoplasty (nose job). 

Possible complications

The most common complications include hematoma, seroma, infection and delayed healing.

  • Hematoma is a result of ruptured capillaries. It is not dangerous and will fade away within a few weeks after the surgery.
  • Seroma is a build-up of body fluids under the skin at the site of the surgery. Seromas do not pose any threat and should resolve themselves in a few weeks’ time.
  • Infection and delayed healing can occur if the doctor’s recommendations for a successful recovery are not followed. A slight reduction in hair or hair growth near the incision sites is also possible. Facial nerve damage is extremely rare if surgery is performed by an experienced plastic surgeon.

After the Facelift

After the surgery is performed, it can take up to four weeks to fully recover. The patient should take time off work for the whole period of recovery.

Bandages are used for covering the wounds, while an elastic facial sling prevents swelling and ensures equal distribution of pressure. If serous fluid drainage tubes are used they will be removed in several days, as well as the stitches (unless dissolvable stitches were used). Bruising should fade away in a couple of weeks. However, to be able to appreciate the final results of the procedure the patient might need to wait from six to nine months until the swelling has fully gone down.

Sun should be avoided for several weeks as it can interfere with scar healing and damage the surrounding vulnerable skin. It is highly recommended to avoid driving after the surgery at least until bruising is relieved. The patient should also avoid wetting the bandages for a couple of days. Strenuous physical activity should be ceased for at least two weeks. The patient should resist applying makeup while the wounds are still healing.

Quality skin care is required to prevent early ageing and it inevitably adds to the effect of a facelift. Weight fluctuation tends to stretch the skin, hence a healthy diet and a stable weight can prolong the results.
