French Lift is a non-surgical facelift procedure, which is performed using a special polyester-free silicone flexible thread developed in France. French Lift, which is a technique developed in recent years, has become an alternative to surgical facelift procedures.
What is the characteristic of French Lift?
Human face begins to fail to counteract the effects of gravity and aging over time. The face gets wrinkled due to the loss of collagen and elasticity, and weakening of the connective tissue. This causes individuals to look older than they actually are. Wrinkles make you look tired, tense and unhappy. Although all individuals want to eliminate the aged and tired appearance and rejuvenate after a certain age, the relevant surgical procedures scare most individuals in terms of both their cost and the healing process. The possibility that non-surgical alternatives usually do not offer permanent or long-term solutions pushes patients to surgical procedures. French Lift has gained a strong place among non-surgical facelift alternatives due to its long-term results and rapid recovery process.
The threads, which consist of silicone inside and polyester outside, are biologically compatible with the human body, and they can stay under the skin for many years.

How is French Lift performed?
The procedure is started by administering local anesthesia to the surgical area. Before the procedure, vectors (suspension angles) are determined. The threads are placed in a LOOP with the help of a cannula, and they are suspended upwards to the fascia. This procedure is performed to both sides. The procedure is finalized after dressing.

Edema disappears within 1 week after the procedure. When there is pain, the patient should use the prescribed drugs regularly. You can return to social life immediately.

The higher the quality of your gene, skin and post-operative self-care routine, the longer the permanence of the result will be.
