A plastic operation on the face – the goal of the operation is to rejuvenate and correct changes in the face and neck area resulting from aging, as a result of which the patient ends up looking 7–8 younger. During the procedure, facial skin is stretched, excess fatty tissue is removed and muscles are reinforced. After the operation, scars are mainly confined to the hairy part of the head. The optimal result becomes visible 3–6 months after the operation, depending on the extent of the operation.
The operation is usually carried out under a general anaesthetic, and the patient usually spends 24 hours in hospital.
More often than not, this operation is carried out on women and men over the age of 40.
