Face lift, effectively treats the flaccidity and drop of the tissues in the area of the face and neck, restoring them to their original position, highlighting their youthful appearance again.
Our face changes each year making the signs of aging noticeable especially in areas sensitive to the effect of gravity and volume loss, such as the neck, cheeks and the contour of the face, and in the area of the lower jaw. With the Face Lift procedure, restoration of flaccidity is achieved in men and women, in the middle and lower half of the face, i.e. in the cheeks, neck and contour of the face.
In the doctor’s office, a detailed examination of the patient’s face, cheeks, neck and eyes is preceded. A complete medical history and photos are taken which are immediately processed through the REVOLUTIONARY 3D TECHNOLOGY available to the doctor, so that those interested can immediately have a first impression of their image after the face lift surgical intervention.
