Face lift surgery is applied to eliminate the deformation on the face due to advancing age. At advanced ages, sagging occurs due to lack of collagen on the face, excessive use of mimics and sun effects. Due to the sagging, an aged appearance appears in which the skin slides downwards. However, the situation can be reversed with surgery.
The face is perhaps one of the areas that a person sees the most every day. After 25, some changes can be observed in the face area. This situation is due to decreased collagen production. Therefore, in such cases, you can apply the face lift procedures if necessary.

If no excess skin is sagging, mini face lift is applied with an endoscope. Tiny incisions are made from the roots of the hair, and tension is created on the skin together with the cameras. If the sagging is versatile and wide, thin incisions are made from the front to the back of the ear. Skin tissues are tightened under these cuts.
