Lifting obličeje a krku (Facelift)

Face and neck lift (Facelift)

Plastic surgery

Nowadays, the standard for an attractive appearance calls for a smooth face with minimal wrinkles. While younger skin can manage with suitable moisturizing agents (Reneve, Dermaceutic, Universkin) and hyaluronic acid or fat transfer applied to the deep skin structures, older clients need to add volume in both the deep and superficial layers of the skin.

This is achieved using Botulotoxin, hyaluronic acid, or by stimulating collagen production in the subcutaneous structures (RF, HIFU/Reneve, Jeisys). If the contours of the face sag despite these measures, but the skin does not yet show excess tissue, thread lift is a suitable option. If the skin sags significantly and shows excess tissue, then facelift or face and neck lift is the most appropriate solution.

Are you looking for a long-term solution to wrinkles and sagging contours in the face? A facelift might be ideal for you, as it works in the deep layers of the skin for effective results.

What is facelift

As soon as the contours of the face sag and form excess skin, one of the facelift techniques is indicated, often along with a neck lift. At our clinic, we usually perform face and neck lifts by simply removing the excess skin (Quick Lift or MACS Lift). This approach means no long scars behind the ears, and the skin is not pulled to the sides of the face. The skin is pulled upwards against gravity instead.

Later stages of sagging contours and excess skin require surgical intervention in the deeper layers of the skin to fix it in the anatomically correct position (SMAS). This procedure is often performed alongside the strengthening of the subcutaneous muscle in the neck and a full neck lift.

A facelift can be performed along with procedures of the lower or upper eyelids and liposuction of the chin if desired, and the removed fat can be used to fill in lines on the forehead or lips. Frequent complementary procedures include lifting of the upper lip, lipofilling, and laser resurfacing of wrinkles.

Who is a suitable candidate for this procedure

Some facelift techniques are suitable especially if thread lift can no longer maintain the structure of the face at the anatomically correct position, or if excess skin has been created in the form of waves and deep wrinkles. This procedure is suitable for both women and men and is not restricted by age but by the aging of the skin and subcutaneous layer of the face.

What can you gain from this procedure

  • The procedure with a long-lasting and permanent result
  • Numerous techniques for all age groups and skins structures
  • Well combined with plastic surgery of the upper and lower eyelids, or with the liposuction of a double chin

Before / After

Before the procedure

Just like in the case of every aesthetic surgery, you need a personal consultation beforehand. ABClinic Art & Beauty provides facelift services to foreign clients as well.

The first consultation can be held over the phone or online. The next consultation is held in person with the physician performing the surgery, usually on the day before the procedure at ABClinic Art & Beauty in Prague.

As some facelift techniques are performed under brief general or local anesthesia, you will need to have a pre-operative examination.

The procedure

The surgery is 1 to 3 hours long, depending on the planned scope and anesthesia. Based on an interview before the procedure, the plastic surgeon will perform either a mini facelift, quick lift, or a more extensive surgical procedure. The surgery can also be performed along with other procedures.

After the procedure

You shall be hospitalized at our clinic if the surgery is performed under general anesthesia. You can go home on the day of the surgery in case of a minor procedure.

Instructions for caring for the area operated upon will depend on the surgeon’s chosen technique and preferences. Stitches in the face (in front of and behind the ear) are usually self-absorbing and do not need to be removed. Stitches behind the hairline are usually removed after fourteen to twenty days.

Ten to fourteen days after being released from our clinic, you can resume light office work, although we still recommend sleeping on your back.

Unfortunately, the effects of aging and gravity on the body cannot be avoided forever. The aging process will, of course, impact the long-term stability of your facelift results. To maintain good results of the surgery, our specialists will be happy to recommend regular procedures and therapies designed to slow down the aging process in the face. Preventive care products by Dermaceutic Laboratoire as well as therapies using JEISYS devices and exclusive comprehensive procedures by RENEVE MONACO will help you retain a youthful appearance longer.

Important information

Based on the consultation and examination of your face and neck, the plastic surgeon will recommend a suitable facelift option for you, either as a minor procedure under local anesthesia (Quick Lift, mini facelift) or a more extensive procedure under analgosedation, a procedure under general anesthesia (MACS lift), or an extensive procedure including surgery of the face and deep structures (SMAS lift) along with neck lift.

The face must be approached as an aesthetic whole, so it is important to consider carefully whether to perform the procedure on only part of the face, the whole face, or also the neck and/or décolletage.

  • Absolute satisfaction, professional approach, nice environment. If you are choosing between two physicians and clinics, I definitely recommend doctor Šatáková in particular.

  • I’ve always had wrinkles on my neck, and the skin on my chin started to loosen, so I decided to solve my problem. At ABClinic, doctor Krajcová offered a collagen treatment using the Nithya agent. The result is amazing, and improvement has been visible even after the first session. I have had three sessions, my neck and chin are firmer, and the neck is without wrinkles after the third and final session. Julie V.

  • I would like to thank Alice at ABClinic and Dr. Satankova for all their help. I recently attended the ABClinic in Prague for a facelift and lower eyelid surgery. Dr. Satankova is extremely skilled and I have a more youthful but natural result. The clinic is very professionally run and the recovery rooms are beautiful. Traveling from abroad can be daunting but Alice helped me every step of the way, arranging taxi transfers and a hotel. I felt confident and cared for throughout my surgery. I am very happy with the results. Georgina M.
