- Hemorrhage: When we perform surgery in the hemorrhagic environment with special medications that we inject into the region, we usually have less risk of postoperative hemorrhage. In addition, this risk is reduced by the fine drain that we place in this area. However, this risk is of little concern in patients with hypertension. Blood that accumulates under the skin can be easily removed. Bleeding under the skin can delay healing and cause bad marks. For this reason, it is very important that blood pressure is controlled and aspirin-like drugs that increase bleeding are given 1 week in advance.
- Infection: The face is a very well-blooded area. For this reason, the risk of infection is very low. With preventive antibiotics applied before and after surgery, this risk is further reduced. In rare cases, if an infection develops, additional antibiotic therapy and dressing may be required.
- Poor traceability: Genetic traits may occur due to infection or skin lesions we encountered in smokers. Additional treatments may be needed for these scars.
- Nerve damage: Motor and sensory nerves can be damaged during a facelift operation. There may be weakness or loss of facial movements after facelift. Nerve damage can cause temporary or permanent loss of motion in the face and in the senses. This type of damage can improve over time. The damage to the senses of the face, the neck and the ear area can cause temporary or permanent drowsiness. Painful nerve is very rare.
- Hair loss: Hair loss can occur in regions where hair is pulled up deep during a facelift aesthetic. It is not known beforehand whether this is possible or not.
- 6 Long-term effects: As a result of old age, weight gain or loss, staying in the sun and some other conditions, there may be changes following the percentage. Facial stretching does not stop aging, or it does not consistently provide the face and neck tension. New surgeries and treatments may be needed in the future to preserve the results of facelift surgery.
Do I have to have facelift surgery again?

But on the other hand, the effects of facelift surgery continue; After years, you will continue to look better than your non-face lift surgery.
