How is facelift surgery performed in Iran?
Face-lift or Rhytidectomy is typically done under general anesthesia. The procedure starts with a delicate incision along the hairline. The surgeon may go with different incisions according to the surgery goal. Usually, the incision starts from the temple, continues around the ear and ends in the lower scalp. However, when there’s a small amount of sagging skin, a shorter incision is made from the temple to around the ears (mini lift). If a neck lift surgery is also desired, the incision is continued from the earlobe to behind the ear. The surgeon repositions excess fat and tightens facial muscles. The skin is then lifted and stitched into place, and any excess skin is removed.
Generally, Iranian surgeons try to minimize the incision but maximize the lift. The surgeon performs the operation in a modern beauty clinic or private hospital using the latest technologies. The procedure takes around 1-2 hours, and it promises a recovery period of 1-2 weeks. Once healed, the scars will gradually fade away into the hairline and skin (in less than 1 year).
Different facelift incisions can be made from the temple to behind the ear according to the surgery goal.
