Face and Neck Lifting

Play Video


It is perhaps the most fascinating operation in cosmetic surgery. The idea of rejuvenating, improving or changing one's features sometimes conquers, sometimes terrifies, but in any case, everyone is fascinated by it.

The people who come to my practice asking for this surgery are motivated by the most diverse needs: those who do not accept that they are getting older, those who want to look different, and it is amazing to observe how these people live better with themselves once the surgery is performed. It is highly complex and requires a careful assessment of the patient's physical and psychological characteristics.

The Results

There are many techniques that can be used to perform such surgery.

Today's techniques are completely different and less aggressive than those used in the past, and for each anatomical area of the face we have specific techniques available (eyebrow lift, temporal lift, zygomatic lift, neck lift, MIVEL lift, MACS lift, minilfting, DEEP PLANE FACE AND NECK LIFT etc.), DEEP PLANE FACE AND NECK LIFT The full face lift procedure is for older faces. Alternatively, when only a few specific points of the face need to be changed, we can make use of many modern, minimally invasive techniques that allow us to operate on each individual part of the face as required:

LIFTING OF THE EYEBROW to lift it and periocular area.

MIDDLE THIRD LIFTING (MIVEL LIFT) to operate on cheeks and cheekbones

NECK LIFTING WITH TECNICA DEEP PLANE  to rejuvenate the neck and lower part of the face

ONE STITCH FACE LIFT for younger patients with slight sagging of the temporal and periocular area


Modern facelift techniques involve fewer risks, a much simpler post-surgery period, no pain or bruising, virtually non-existent medication, and a return to daily life within a few days. The big difference between the old and the new surgical techniques lies in the fact that nowadays, not only excess skin is removed, but the facial muscles are mainly worked on, repositioning them, giving longer-lasting and more natural results that improve the features without altering them, preserving those unique and unrepeatable characteristics of each individual face.

Every face is unique and unrepeatable, so it is the surgeon's job to adapt different techniques to the individual cases he has to treat.

When we talk about COMPLETE CERVICO FACIAL LIFTING we mean operating on all parts of the face, neck and eyes. That is, operating on patients in an age range of 50 to 70 years and over.

In these cases the surgery is aimed at repositioning all the muscles of the face and neck and eliminating excess skin.

The duration of the procedure varies depending on the technique used (2-6 hours).

It must be performed under general anaesthesia.

The Admission can be day surgery or 1 night's stay

The expected scar may be different depending on the technique used.
It is not a painful operation.


Prior to surgery, patients will undergo the relevant medical examinations during which the plastic surgeon will explain the benefits, risks and all the details related to the procedure.

The surgeon will also request a series of pre-operative diagnostic examinations to check the health status of the candidate patient. The examinations usually consist of blood chemistry tests, chest X- ray; ECG to be supplemented by any additional tests if necessary.

Facial proportions, health status of skin and subcutaneous tissues and their position will be checked. The presence or absence of skin diseases and any allergies.

Pre-surgery photographs will be taken and, thanks to the digital simulation of the result, the parts of the face that need to be modified will be studied together with the patient so that the potential result can be understood.
Informed consent will be obtained and a date for surgery will be scheduled.

On the morning of surgery, patients should come to the clinic on an empty stomach and use an antiseptic shampoo to reduce the risk of infection.


At the end of the surgery patients will wake up with a sheath around their face that will have to be worn for a week. During the first week there may be minor bruising and swelling of the face but there will be no restriction to daily activities.

After 7 days there will be a follow-up visit and after 14 days a second visit.
The return to normal life is almost immediate.

Sometimes these operations are combined with regenerative medicine or laser therapy methods to improve the condition of the skin and tissues.
