Facelift - your professional face lift in the Czech Republic

A face lift is intended to improve your facial appearance and make you look younger for your age. Usually, a face lift can be done with a correction of the eye lids, a lift of the forehead or of the neck, or a liposuction of the chin.

A lot of people want to maintain the fresh look of their facial skin. Especially in this day and age in which we get older than ever before and still want to live vital and active lives, we want to look as young as we feel. In case you are interested in a harmonic rejuvenation of your facial skin, you can contact us at any time.

We know that increasing age can lead to a loss in elasticity in your face, neck and your cheeks. Annoying natural wrinkles can be improved through a professional facelift.

In addition to the traditional facelift we offer a PDO Thread lift, which is the newest modern method to rejuvenate your skin without a surgery and its consequences. The threads are absorbable and will dissolve within 9-12 months, yet the revitalizing effect will remain for years. 

Our clinics in the Czech Republic are specialized in facelifts. Our service team from cosmetic-op will support you in all questions concerning your facelift.

About 4 weeks before the surgery, you should reduce smoking. Moreover alcohol should be avoided. About 2 weeks before the surgery you should not take anticoagulants (Aspirin, acetylsalicylic acid containing drugs). For about 2 weeks before the surgery you should avoid sunbaths or solarium, particularly in the face. If you have short hair, you should grow it a bit longer, in order to cover the sutures in the period of recovery.

In order to conduct the surgery you need a blood count and an electrocardiogram. In case you want to have the results before your appointment with your surgeon, your general practitioner can provide you with them. In this case you can bring the results with you (the results should not be older than two weeks). However, it is not mandatory to conduct these tests beforehand. The tests that you need in order to decide if you are ready for the operation will also be made directly at the clinic.

Before the surgery you will be informed during a detailed consultation talk on how the surgery is done. During this consultation you will be informed about possible complications and risks. It is advisable that you write down all the questions you have concerning the surgery, before your appointment at the clinic.

The surgery will be conducted under general anaesthesia sometimes partially under regional anaesthesia. Before the anaesthesia you will be advised by an anaesthetist about the risks, complications and possible alternatives to a narcosis. The anaesthetist will be present during the surgery. A general anaesthesia means stress for the body. During narcoses risks or complications can occur, depending on previous diseases and your general state of health.

One incision runs from the hair line at the temples to the front side of the ear and ends behind the ear at the hair line of the neck. The skin is separated from the subjacent tissue. Thus droopy connective tissue and muscle tissue can be corrected, superfluous skin can be removed and the face and the neck are lifted.

Afterwards the wound is closed by thin, inconspicuous sutures. You get a head bandage for about 24-48 hours.

If you got drainages, these are removed one day after the surgery. The bandages are also removed or renewed. The stitches can usually be taken out after 10-14 days by your general practitioner. Red scars usually fade more and more until only a very small white line is visible. Before your departure you get a follow-up examination. To make it easier for you, you should have an accompanying person as you should not drive home yourself. Make sure that you have enough breaks.

For your recovery you should grant yourself one week off after the surgery. Then, you can slowly take up your every-day activities again. Sports should be avoided for 6 weeks. You should not go to the solarium or take sunbathes for about 8-12 weeks. When you take a sunbath afterward you should apply a sun lotion with a high protection factor to the face.

As soon as the wounds are completely closed you can take showers and cautiously wash your hair again. Permanent waves and dyeing can be done usually after about 6 weeks.

Usually in the first few days after the surgery you feel some pain and a slight feeling of tugging pain at the sutures. This however subsides after a few days in the course of the wound healing. Pain can be alleviated by pain killers.

Like after every surgery secondary haemorrhages cannot be excluded. Therefore you should avoid taking acetylsalicylic acid (Aspirin) and other acetylsalicylic acid containing drugs two weeks before the surgery. Despite aseptic measures inflammations can occur. Preventively you get antibiotics.

After a surgery there can occur blood clots in the main veins (thrombosis), these can be carried further and thus block a blood vessel (embolism). As prevention it can be considered to take anticoagulant drugs (i. e. injections of heparin), however these cause an increased bleeding tendency and in very rare cases grave dysfunctions of blood coagulation.

Even when the wound healing is normal, scars can initially become red or harden. After a while they will fade, they become inconspicuous. You will be informed on further risks and possible side-effects in a comprehensive handout.

The description of the operation is generally phrased and can’t replace the personal consultation with the cosmetic surgeon. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to show before/after pictures, due to the fact that this is forbidden by the Law on Advertising in the Health Care System.
