A facelift does not prevent the aging of the skin, but rejuvenates the appearance by a number of years. The procedure can also be combined with eyelid plastic for a more aesthetically pleasing result.
Normal aging means that the face’s natural fat deposits decrease and cause the skin to decrease over time while becoming thinner and less elastic. Less subcutaneous fat and volume on the face in combination with less elasticity in the skin leads to “hang” in the cheeks. In addition to that and hereditary factors, smoking, excessive tanning, alcohol, diet, stress, large weight loss, other environmental factors as well as certain diseases can speed up this process.
How does a face lift go?
During a facelift, the skin and its underlying tissue are tightened / lifted. Excess skin is removed to improve the appearance of the chin, jaw line and neck. The deep folds from the nasal wings to the mouth pipes (nasolabial folds) are smoothed out, but finer wrinkles and folds around the mouth may require other treatments such as skin grinding, exfoliation or laser.
During a consultation before surgery, you and your surgeon will carefully review your wishes and conditions. Your surgeon performs a thorough analysis of your face. You will be informed about the procedure, risk of complications, aftercare and expected results, as it is important to have realistic expectations. The extent of the procedure is determined based on your wishes, the amount of excess skin and the elasticity of the skin. The operation is performed in safe and secure anesthesia. The scar is well hidden in the thinning region, above, in front and behind the ear and will not be visible after a few months.

Before the operation
The first time you visit us, you get to meet an experienced information nurse who listens to your wishes, goes through the operation and answers your questions.
You will, among other things, get information about the procedure itself and what you can expect, what it costs and how long the waiting time is. You can also fill out a questionnaire about your health condition, any past illnesses and surgeries. We also talk about your expectations. This first visit is always free of charge.
If you choose to proceed, we will book an operating time and a consultation time with one of our plastic surgeons.
Consultation is important. We carefully review your health condition and any medicines you take. It provides an opportunity to talk extensively about all aspects of the operation. You can try a number of different types and models of implants with your plastic surgeon. The end goal is that the result is completely in line with your expectations.
It is good if you prepare for the surgery by staying fit and finding out as much as possible about what applies before, during and after the surgery. For the operation to be as good as possible, you should be on a body mass index (BMI) below 30.
Smoking impairs the oxygen supply to the tissue and in turn delays the wound healing process. It also increases the risk of complications and you should therefore be smoke-free 6 weeks before the operation and until the wound is healed.
We are always on hand to answer your questions.
The skin is also an important part to go through, a thick skin will not put itself over the rebuilt cartilage on the nose, but it will take months for the skin to adapt to the new underlying structure.
Your conditions limit what is possible with your nose. Although the scars are usually not visible, there is always a risk that your skin will heal slowly or otherwise. Bruises on the upper part of the face occur and may persist for a few weeks. Being stuffy in the nose during the first few months is not uncommon but transient. During surgery, the skin is lifted from the nose, which can cause pigmentation in some skin types that may become permanent.
The final result takes about 12 months, so any corrections and further interventions are usually avoided during the first year. The swelling persists long after surgery.
If you suffer from nasal congestion, you should be assessed by a doctor at a hospital before surgery, bring a medical copy to the clinic.
On the day of surgery, you will meet your surgeon. He / she photographs the area of operation if this is not done in conjunction with the consultation.
The procedure is done in local anesthesia in combination with a sedative. The surgery takes about 1-5 hours depending on which body or parts you want to operate. You go home the same day.
that’s how it goes
If you want to book a time for surgery, you can do so after the consultation. Sometimes you want to think about the matter and then call and book a time. Once you have decided and booked an operation time you will receive information material from us. There is comprehensive information and instructions about the procedure and what to think about before, during and after the clinic stay.
Prior to surgery
On the day of surgery, you meet your surgeon, who draws on you. You have the opportunity to ask additional questions if needed. You will be photographed.
The length of the operation depends on the procedure being performed as well as its extent. Prior to the surgery, you will receive pain relief for preventative purposes and also some sedative medicine. The procedure is then essentially painless either in local anesthesia or anesthesia.
If the procedure is performed under local anesthesia, you will be able to stand on your own legs and go home, but not drive your own car. Should you need to rest further at the clinic there is of course that possibility.
If the procedure is performed in anesthesia, you will be rested in one of our awakening rooms. Our employees will take good care of you so that you feel safe with us. It is important to keep in mind that you are not allowed to drive your car home after the procedure.
As a rule, prescription drugs such as Panodil and Ipren are sufficient as pain relief when you get home.
Before returning home, you will receive a return card with a telephone number to the clinic and to the plastic surgeon who has performed the operation so that you can reach us around the clock.
One of our nurses will call and hear how you feel 1-2 days after returning home.
After about 2 weeks you will return for a postoperative check. After a week most people can start working and after 3-6 weeks you can start exercising. Before that, we recommend quiet walks.
It is normal for the surgical areas to be swollen for a long time and in some cases it may take 2-3 months before all swelling has settled. Bruises in the skin are also common and harmless but take a few weeks before they fade. To reduce swelling, you should have compression straps in the areas after surgery, first time around the clock for about 4 weeks and then a few more days during the day. The compression treatment also contributes to a good result. Despite refined techniques in liposuction, irregularities and pitting can occur in the skin and this must be aware of. Before the operation, you and your surgeon must have carefully gone through expectations and realistic results.
If you live far from Gothenburg and thus have difficulties in coming to a doctor’s consultation, you can send photographs together with contact details and a description of your wishes. We will contact you for a telephone consultation as soon as the pictures have arrived at the clinic. You will find our email form on the website below contact us.
