- Cosmetic Surgery
Face-lifting is the most demanding cosmetic surgery procedure. It requires extensive surgeon’s experience and finely developed skills.
Surgical team headed by Dr Rajko and Dr Dinko Toncic has perfected the facelift surgery through years of experience. In our clinic, facelift and all other procedures are performed extremely carefully and minimally invasively while paying great attention to details.
Face and neck lift before and after the procedure
Since the aging process is different for each individual, the optimal age to do a face lift varies from one person to another. Generally, it is thought that people in their forties to sixties are in the age group most likely to require this treatment.
Full face and neck lift is mostly performed at people closer to their sixties, who have loose facial skin, bags and excess skin on the jaw line and excess skin on the neck.
Most noticeable signs are the disappearance of a clear line on lower jaw – fading of the strict border between the lower jaw and neck, accompanied by the formation of pads and double chin. A clear line of the lower jaw is what gives firm form and youthful appearance to the face.
Further indications are deepening of nasal-labial folds (wrinkles between the nose and lip angles) combined with lowering of the lip angles that give an expression of unhappiness to the face.
The signs of aging in the eye region are: pads below the eyes, lowered eyelids and lowered outer eye angles. They can be removed by blepharoplasty – eyelid surgery.
Wrinkled forehead and lowered eyebrows can be surgically corrected by a forehead lift. The forehead lift and blepharoplasty are two independent operations but can be done at the same time; combined with a face lift or they can be performed separately.
Deep Lift is the most effective technique used in facelift surgery. It has been in use for the past 30 years. The operation is very demanding for the surgeon but the results are remarkable. Based on 25 years of experience, Dr Toncic and his team strongly recommend deep lift to their patients.
Beside skin tightening, this operation involves lifting of facial muscles back into their natural position. This gives the face a more natural appearance and optimal rejuvenation effect that lasts much longer than the effect achieved by classical facelift.
It depends on the surgeon’s skill and experience, the particular characteristics of the patient (age, skin quality, quality of subcutaneous tissue) and technique used (deep lift or classic lift).
With deep lift the effect lasts much longer (about 10 years). The operation can be repeated up to 3 times.
As mentioned before, beside facelift, there is a range of smaller procedures that can significantly enhance a patient’s appearance.
Additional minor surgeries such as forehead lift, upper and lower eyelid surgery - blepharoplasty and mechanical dermabrasion of upper and lower lip to reduce fine lines around the lips can significantly enhance the effects of a facelift.
All those procedures can be done at the same time; combined with a face-lifting surgery. They can also be performed while in recovery phase or completely separately, independent of all other procedures.
Our philosophy is to achieve youthful and fresh appearance, without excess skin on the face and neck, allowing natural mimics, with open eyes and a smile reflecting self confidence.
