MINI FACELIFT


Turn back the clock 10-15 years and see a natural-looking and
beautiful you in the mirror.

Facial aging starts at the peak of our youth, and manifests itself first with a deep volume loss. As we lose our
facial bone volume, our skin starts attenuating as well. The art of natural facial rejuvenation is a balanced
reversal of this volume loss using our own tissue and relocation of the attanuated skin and muscles back to
their original locations. Subtle refinements, emphasising natural and harmonious results will restore our
self-confidence while retaining the essential character of the face.

Dr Tiryaki has both a discerning eye for the many aspects of facial beauty, and the
many years of experience necessary to ensure a natural and beautiful result.

WHAT IS MINI FACELIFT?


The operation is performed around the mid-face and jawline and involves the removal of excessive skin
that has sagged during the natural ageing process
Operational scars are unnoticeable as they are hidden on anatomical creases in the ears and within the sideburn.
Although an innovative new technique, it has grown rapidly in popularity and has replaced much more invasive traditional full-facelifts for most of the patients.

We can deliver comparable results to traditional facelift procedures via these combination treatments, albeit achieve them by far less invasive means that require far less recovery time.

Mini facelift is a lighter, less invasive surgery that produces a younger looking you
most people feel they look around 10 years younger, but still themselves
reversing the natural signs of ageing that commonly take place during your 40s and 50s.

Facelift with Dr. Tunç Tiryaki

Dr Tiryaki is one of the pioneers of Mini facelifts and Hybrid facelifts in the world. His approach to facelift incorporates sedation instead of general anaesthesia and an innovative surgical technique minimizing the downtime. Whether you have advanced or early signs of facial aging, Dr. Tiryaki will cater the least aggressive approach to address your concerns. He will always give particular attention to achieve natural looking results.
During his consultation, Dr Tiryaki will carefully evaluate your face and accordingly choose a bespoke and appropriate method. Depending on your need, this can be as simple as tissue replacement and regeneration, Mini Facelift or Hybrid Facelift

How is a Mini Facelift performed?

With the mini-facelift, incisions are much shorter (resulting in smaller scars) and rather than lifting the skin (the standard technique for a full face-lift) SMAS and the muscles are restored to their original position. This is very important, since it is the main factor to achieve natural looking results.

In addition, fat tissue restoration and regenerative cell treatments can be used to restore elasticity resulting in a younger appearance without changing the patients’ natural expression.

The procedure usually takes between 1 and 1.5 hours and is performed using local anaesthesia and sedation. General Anaesthesia is usually not required for this procedure, however, Dr Tiryaki may recommend an overnight stay in hospital if it is best for your recovery.

Post-operative recovery is relatively fast with bandages being removed in around 2 days and your normal day to day routine can be resumed within 7-10 working days.
Post-operative pain is rare and any discomfort is handled with simple painkillers. It is normal for there to be some bruising, but this is minor.

Who should consider the Mini-Facelift?

A mini-facelift is an ideal option for patients around 40’s, who are already tired of fillers or afraid of having overfilled faces. For those patients, a mini-facelift can be the most natural-looking and long-lasting facial rejuvenation.

What if you need more?

A full-facelift, with incisions starting inside the temples or scalp which usually necessitates a deep general anaesthesia is usually not preferred by Dr. Tiryaki. Just for a single fact, it is not necessary anymore.In the early periods of facial aging, most of the problems may be solved very easily and naturally with a mini-lift. If the patients show signs of aging on the neck as well, Dr. Tiryaki might prefer to add a neck-lift to the initial mini-lift to cure all signs of facial skin sagging.Still, Face and Neck lift is a lighter version of traditional full-facelift, which will produce a much younger looking you (most people feel they look around 15 years younger) but still yourself.This approach does not necessitate general anaesthesia either. The operation is performed around the mid and lower face including the neck. Your own fat tissue is used to reverse the age related facial bone loss. Operational scars are mostly unnoticeable as they are hidden on anatomical creases in front and behind the ears and within the hairline. This is an innovative combination of mini facelift, neck lift and minimal fat grafting to sharpen the facial bone arches, make the face look more structured and V-shaped.

What other procedures can be combined with a Mini Facelift?

Dr. Tiryaki will determine the type of the procedure according to particular needs of patients. In some cases, eyelid surgery might be needed, which can be addressed by simple skin-only eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to reduce the downtime and avoid the need for general anaesthesia.In many patients, the nose loses its projection and nose tip rotates down due to the midfacial bone resorption. In such cases, a 5-minutes top-on procedure called ‘’Tip Flip’’ can recreate the youthful nasal shape. Dr. Tiryaki also performs Revision Facelifts to correct problems of facelifts performed by other previous surgeons.

How long is the recovery after a Mini Facelift?

The first two days you shall expect to have a light dressing covering your ears and head. Dr. Tiryaki will remove the dressing usually after 48 hours and you will be advised to have your shower, wash your hair and face without any restrictions. The stiches will be removed after 10-12 days. Most patients are able to go back to work and their social life within 1 to 2 weeks after the swelling and bruising have subsided. Dr. Tiryaki will advise you as to when you can return to exercise or strenuous activities.
