Facelifting in Kharkiv

Facelifting (circular facelifting) is a procedure that is performed to eliminate age-related changes in the face (wrinkles, nasolabial folds, skin sagging). It is possible to tighten the skin of the face after consulting a plastic surgeon and conducting a diagnostic examination prescribed by the doctor. A circular facelifting in Kharkiv, including eyebrow and forehead lift in Kharkiv, is carried out at the medical center “ON Clinic Kharkiv”.

  • loose skin of the neck;
  • need to restore the natural oval of face;
  • coarsening of facial features;
  • eyebrow drooping;

Contraindications for facelifting include chronic skin diseases, diabetes mellitus, bleeding problems and infectious diseases (viral pneumonia, hepatitis, flu). Facial plastic surgery is not done during pregnancy and lactation.

Endoscopic facelifting in Kharkiv

Endoscopic facelifting is a plastic surgery performed to rejuvenate the face using endoscopic techniques. During the intervention, small incisions are made in the scalp. Through these incisions, the tissues of the forehead and cheeks are pushed back and raised.

Endoscopic facelifting is performed under general anesthesia and lasts about an hour. After the operation, slight swelling and bruising may occur. The recovery period after endoscopic lifting is about a week. 

Facelifting in Kharkiv

Preparation for facelifting includes a consultation by a plastic surgeon and diagnostic tests. The plastic surgeon examines the patient and refers him/her for testing.

Tests and examinations before facelift surgery include:

  • test for antibodies to HIV;
  • tests for hepatitis B and C;
  • biochemical blood test;
  • ELISA test (IgM) for the Covid-19 virus (48 hours before surgery);
  • clinical blood test;
  • coagulogram;
  • ultrasonography of heart;
  • ultrasonography of veins of the lower extremities;
  • electrocardiogram.

After the diagnostics, the doctor appoints the date of the operation and draws up its plan. Preparing for facelifting also involves refusing to eat and drink two hours before the intervention.

Immediately before the surgery on the face, the plastic surgeon marks the face with a special marker to determine the amount of work. Therefore, the marking can last longer than the intervention itself. In the process of marking, the patient's hair shall be collected so as not to interfere with the doctor's work.

The duration of the facelifting varies depending on the type of operation and the amount of work. After the facelifting, the doctor applies stitches and a special fixation bandage, and gives recommendations for the recovery period. During the follow-up examination by a plastic surgeon (seven to ten days after the facelifting), the doctor removes the stitches. The recovery process after facelifting is usually two to four weeks.
