Facelifting

You no longer want flabby tissue, balancing the loss of volume and contours on the face.

Different doctors today offer a variety of lifts. From Fadenlift, Micro-Lift, Goldfadenlift, Mini Lift, SMAS-Lift, MACS-Lift up to the most interesting own creations in the naming. Lifting is basically about re-positioning tissue – usually going “up”. If the excess of skin on the temples, cheeks or neck has reached a certain level, skin must also be removed. We explain the individual possibilities in detail here.

The different lifting methods in detail

THREAD LIFT

A collective term for different techniques and above all different threads. There are basically three types of threads of the material, which differ in the price and above all from the time to the dissolution in the tissue.

PDO Threads – Polydioxane is a material that has been used successfully as a surgical suture for more than 10 years in surgery. A result with these threads is not expected much longer than 6-9 months, because the material has dissolved up to then. Advantage of the treatment: it takes place in local anesthesia with usually little to no downtime.

SILHOUTTE® filaments – polylactic acid is the material used here. The threads have thickenings, which anchor themselves in the tissue and thus show a stronger lifting effect. The time to resolution is here at 12-18 months. Even with these threads, the treatment can be done in local anesthesia. 1-3 days break (depending on the area of ​​application) is recommended.

POLYCAPROLACTONE APTOS® – threads – the material used here has the longest half-life. These threads come in different designs and are often used in mini lifts, where a small strip of skin is removed.

RENUVION® FACELIFT

The revolution in aesthetic medicine is the plasma technology of Renuvion®. This technology is based on the generation of a true plasma jet using radio frequency and helium gas. The properties of this plasma jet are unique. We also refer to it as a “cold iron” CoolPlasma. Tissue is specifically heated and thus tightened, without damaging the surrounding tissue. The penetration depth is controlled compared to a laser. In liposuction this technology is used to tighten the connective tissue from the inside. When used on the face, the top tissue layer is removed and the tissue is tightened and lifted in depth.

Advantages of the surgical face-lift: no visible scars on the hairline, improvement of skin quality and surface structure, lifting without foreign material in the depth.

Of course, this lifting method also has disadvantages that lie in the longer downtime, since the skin has to recover. You must use special ointments during the course and avoid the sun for several weeks. To avoid herpes infections, you need to take a few days before and a few days after the procedure, a drug.

Sequence of a RENUVION® FACELIFT:

  1. Marking and planning: Together, photos are taken shortly before the procedure and the operation planning is carried out with a green pencil on the skin.
  2. The procedure: This lasts 1-1.5 hours depending on the method and technique and is always performed in twilight sleep with an anesthetist. You can leave the surgery on the same day.
  3. Healing process: Especially in the first 24 hours you should rest and stay at home. The head bandage can be removed after 24-48 hours. Also the days and weeks after you should spare yourself. You get a detailed plan which skin care you need to apply. Within the first week we plan a control appointment. It is important that you avoid the sun in the first 3-4 months, because the fresh skin otherwise tends to hyperpigmentation.
MINI LIFT

Mini Lifts enjoy great popularity with us, as it comes to a significantly better lifting effect compared to the Fadenlifts, the longer downtime of a complete facelift but fails. This lifting method is used when the excess of skin in the direction of the ear, hairline or neck can not be repaired by a thread lift alone.

Sequence of a MINI LIFTS:

  1. Marking and planning: Together, photos are taken shortly before the procedure and the operation planning is carried out with a green pencil on the skin.
  2. The operation: The procedure lasts 1-2 hours depending on the method and technique and is usually performed under local anesthesia. On request, you can plan this procedure in twilight sleep accompanied by an anesthetist.
  3. Healing process: Especially in the first 24 hours, you should rest and stay at home, as there is a risk of rebleeding in time. The head bandage can be removed after 24 hours. Within the first week we plan a control appointment. They should spare themselves the next days and weeks. After about 5-7 days you can wash the hair again with a ph-neutral shampoo. After Faden Zug we recommend a special scars care brand AND from the USA for the optimal scarring.
FACELIFT

Sounds worse than it is. Several years ago, more skin was removed from a “face lift” than is necessary today with modern techniques. Depending on the severity – with neck or with eyebrows and temples, this procedure can be carried out on a day-clinic or overnight. Swelling of the face can be visible for several weeks, but socially acceptable you are basically after a few days again.

Procedure of a FACELIFT:

  1. Marking and planning: Together, photos are taken shortly before the procedure and the operation planning is carried out with a green pencil on the skin.
  2. The operation: Depending on the method and technique, the procedure lasts for 2-4 hours and is usually performed in twilight sleep with an anesthetist. You can usually leave the surgery or clinic on the same day.
  3. Healing process: Especially in the first 24 hours, they should rest and stay at home, because in the time the risk of rebleeding. The head bandage can be removed after 24-48 hours. Within the first week we plan a control appointment. They should spare themselves the next days and weeks. After about 5-7 days you can wash the hair again with a ph-neutral shampoo. After Faden Zug we recommend a special scars care brand AND from the USA for the optimal scarring.

The advice before a facelift

Together with your doctor or physician, the medical options will be discussed together. This initial consultation must take place at least 15 days before the scheduled surgery. If you are being cared for by an anesthetist, this information from your colleague must also be available 14 days before the procedure in our home-based anesthetic outpatient clinic. Risks, treatment process and the healing process afterwards are discussed in detail. It is important to find the right method for each patient. Be it with or without surgery, with or without removing a strip of skin.

The surgery interview before a facelift

This further consultation is important and legally binding. This interview should take place 1-2 weeks before the planned surgery and at the latest during this conversation, the information sheet must be signed. In the case of Fadenlifts, treatment can be carried out on the same day as for fillers and botulinum toxin.

The anesthetic outpatient clinic

Some procedures can be performed under local anesthesia. If prolonged interventions are necessary, they are performed in a twilight sleep or light anesthesia, depending on the effort involved. In addition to the safety of you, it is above all a painless surgical experience. Our anesthetists advise you in advance on all questions concerning anesthesia in our anesthetic outpatient department at Grinzinger Allee 15, 1190 Vienna. For legal reasons, you must hold a consultation with the anesthetist team 15 days prior to the procedure and sign the reconnaissance sheet together.

Just before the intervention of the facelift

You should avoid acetylsalicylic acid-containing medications (such as aspirin, aspirin, etc.) for 10 days prior to the scheduled procedure as this will all add to the bleeding tendency. Smoking reduces blood circulation and delays wound healing. In order to avoid possible complications, smoking should be stopped at least two weeks before the operation and should be stopped until six weeks after the procedure. You will be contacted by phone a few days before the surgery to determine the exact time you want to be present on the surgery day.

Risks of a facelift

It can cause minor or major bleeding through the procedure, these form after a few weeks back. A numb sensation or touch sensitivity may also remain for some time due to the swelling in the treated areas. Hardenings that are felt under the skin are part of the healing process. If redness and additional pain occur after the procedure, inform us immediately. Asymmetries are possible before and after surgery. Rarely, there is a seam incompatibility.

Testimonials

I’ve been thinking for a while about straightening my face. The flabby skin began to bother me, and I’ve always said that if something bothers me and you can change it, I’ll change it. After a top consultation, it was clear to me that I had surgery with Dr. med. Let Bartsch do it. The result is great, I had little pain and finally a nice taut face again.

Dr. Rolf Bartsch

By means of an intervention on the face and neck, the signs of aging of the chin contour, the neck and the cheeks can be removed very effectively. In a counseling session, we evaluate together the appropriate method, because each patient is individual and there are different types of lifting.
