What Are the Types of Facelift?

Understanding the different types of facelift surgeries can help you make an informed decision about your facial rejuvenation options. Thanks to Mr Tunç Tiryaki for providing important insights into facelift surgery and its various types. He emphasises the growing popularity of the deep plane facelift.

A facelift is a major surgery designed to reduce the signs of ageing in the face and neck. Several types of facelifts can be performed depending on an individual’s needs, including a micro facelift, deep plane facelift, mid-facelift, and thread facelift.

Traditional Facelift

The most common type of facelift is the traditional facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy. This procedure tightens facial muscles, removes excess fat, and repositions sagging skin to create a smoother appearance.

Micro Facelift

A micro facelift is less invasive than a traditional facelift and primarily focuses on tightening underlying muscles with minimal incisions.

Deep Plane Facelift

A deep plane facelift works more deeply, addressing severe signs of ageing by lifting underlying muscles and repositioning sagging skin. This type of facelift is often used to correct significant sagging skin or facial fat.

Mid Facelift

A mid-facelift targets the central portion of the face, raising the cheeks and improving nasolabial folds (lines running from the sides of the nose down to the mouth).

Thread Facelift

A thread facelift uses small threads placed into the skin to lift and contour areas like cheeks, temples, eyebrows, and jowls. This procedure can provide results similar to a facelift with minimal incisions.

Each type of facelift has its unique benefits and risks, so it’s important to consult with a qualified facial surgeon to determine which facelift is right for you.
