Face lifting


With age the soft facial tissues flag and deeper and deeper wrinkles appear on the face. The unfavorable factors, contributing to ageing include imprudent exposure to the sun, frequent fluctuations of weight, genotypic heredity. Assoc. Prof. Dr. Emil Georgiev shall assess four factors before recommending you a certain technique for the specific rejuvenation procedure: skin tonus, presence of subcutaneous fat, facial muscles tonus and bone structure.

For a maximum good result, the operation can be combined with upper face lifting, filling or treatment of slight wrinkles. In many cases, together with the face lifting, neck lifting is performed during which the redundant skin is removed or stretched sideward or upward through incisions around the ears and the muscles of the lower jaw and neck are tightened.
The double chin can be removed within the same operation by means of suction of fats (liposuction).

The Procedure


Assoc. Prof. Dr. Emil Georgiev removes the redundant skin and fat, tightens the muscles and pre-positions skin contrariwise to the gravitation processes. Face lifting reduces the signs of ageing in the middle and lower part of the face, softens moderately expressed nasolabial wrinkles and is able to turn the clock back with 5 – 7 years.
