Over the years, facial skin loses the elasticity it has always enjoyed and this leads to the appearance of wrinkles and small furrows. This situation can become unpleasant for a woman, especially when she feels younger than the age that her face wants to show. The facelift it is my preferred surgery to perform.

To restore firmness to the skin and a new youthfulness to the face, Lifting intervenes, a series of procedures that eliminate the imperfections due to age. Thanks to Lifting, in fact, the skin regains its lost delicacy and the woman the beauty of the past. Now days in addition to the most advanced techniques for face lifts I always combines the use of micro/nano fat grafts and stem cells to rejuvenate the whole skin and replace volumes.

The procedure

Before the surgery, I thoroughly examine each of my patients to make sure they are in good health and to understand their needs and wishes. On the basis of these I try to identify the most appropriate surgery and how far the possible results are up to expectations. It is important to understand the right proportions and volume of the face, pulling the skin ‘away’ is important as it is to restore the volumes and to act to the deep muscle. My facelifts are very effective and natural.

At the end of the operation I apply an elastic compression bandage to the neck and face the patient has to wear for two days. On the sixth day, I visit the patient again to remove the stitches and recommend another slightly compression bandage to be worn at night for another 10 days.

During the convalescence, which varies from patient to patient, rest is very important: from work, domestic activities and anything that can strain the body. Finally, as with any surgery, scars are expected, but they will be hidden and with time become invisible. This will allow the woman to better appreciate the results: a face with smooth, toned and youthful skin.

Frequently asked questions

Doubts or questions? It's only natural to have any! Below I try to answer the most frequent ones. For further clarification you can write to me at any time, I will answer as soon as possible.
01. Do you have to be fasting to support the operation?
Yes, since it is general anaesthesia, you should not eat or drink for about six hours before the operation.
02. Is it necessary to stop smoking before the operation?
Yes. In order to promote rapid recovery and reduce the risk of infection, smokers should refrain from smoking, starting at least two weeks before the operation.
03. Is it not recommended to take medication before treatment?
It is not recommended, but there is a possibility that it is necessary to stop taking them.
04. How many types of face-lifts can be used?
There are three lifting techniques: traditional, DEEP SMAS and Neck lifting. Traditional lifting: used in cases of evident skin laxity, it consists in treating the layers of tissue under the epidermis and on the muscles in order to eliminate skin excess and make sure that cheeks and jaw are well defined. Once the administration of general anaesthesia is completed, I make an incision along the hairline continuing towards the front of the ears until the part behind the auricle. I then separate the skin from the underlying tissues, to remove excess fat, consequently, I place it back on the face, removing any excess. In this way, the face lifts up and assumes the new position. Sub SMAS lifting: used when the tissues around the cheekbones start to fall out, creating nose-labial furrows and resulting skin laxity mainly in the central area of the face, it consists in actin deeply on the muscles of the face. It is a long and complex procedures not always necessary. Neck lift : I pull the skin only with incisions in the back of the ears so that the skin and muscles in the neck are pulled and reinforced. Nowadays there is also another way to rejuvenate the face, this new techniques consists in injecting fat and stem cells in the face. The procedure can be done as a local day case and it is becoming very popular.
