Facelift Tunisia: what is cervico facial lift ?
With age, facial wrinkles begin to deepen and we begin to get tired of watching these signs of aging. Everyone dreams of staying young and looking ten years younger. Thus, cosmetic brands compete to create the anti-wrinkle “product”. Aesthetic treatments such as hyaluronic acid fillers are a good solution to tighten the skin, but they are not durable. However, one of the most effective solutions against facial wrinkles is the mini face lift in Tunisia or the cervico facial lift in Tunisia associated with a neck lift.
The face lift in Tunisia is also called cervico-facial lift. It involves treating the sagging and drooping of the skin and muscles of the face and neck. It also involves correcting the insufficiency or excess of fatty tissue (in the case of liposculpture of the face).
The cervico-facial lift in Tunisia does not aim to modify the shape or appearance of the face, but to surgically correct the signs of aging that affect the face and neck. Its goal is to correct the sagging of the skin without taking away the natural appearance of the face.
The principle of the cervico-facial lift is to correct the looseness of the muscles and to restore their tension. The final touch is the redraping of the skin.
The facelift can be performed alone or in combination with other facial cosmetic surgeries (blepharoplasty, temporal lift, neck lift or mini neck lift in Tunisia, eyebrow lift).when the cervicofacial lift is associated with a blepharoplasty of the four eyelids, it is called a complete face lift.
Is there an ideal age for facelift surgery?
Face lift surgery performed earlier will produce a better, more natural and longer lasting result. This cosmetic face surgery can be performed from the ages of 40 and 50. When a facelift is performed at this age, there is more collagen and elastin in the tissues and therefore the lift will last much longer. However, good results can be achieved at any age.
And because Tunisia facelift techniques are modern and last much longer, many women feel that it makes less sense for them to wait until they look older in order to look young again. They would rather have a continued maintenance of their appearance over time, rather than a more dramatic change later on.

The benefits of a facelift in Tunisia
The face lift is the best facial rejuvenation surgery because it :
Lifts the entire face
Accentuates the neck, jawline and cheekbones
Lifts the mid-face area more effectively
Does not cause abnormal skin lesions
Is less painful than other lifting techniques
Produces longer lasting results than other procedures for up to 15 years
How long will a facelift last?
A facelift is permanent, meaning that the sutures holding the lift in place will never come undone. However, the skin and deeper layers continue to lose collagen and elastin as the aging process progresses and the tissue begins to sag over time.
The speed at which the tissues will relax depends on a number of factors, but in particular lifestyle factors such as smoking, alcohol, sun exposure damage and recurrent weight loss or gain will cause the tissues to relax more quickly.
The age at which the facelift is performed is also an important factor, younger skin (40’s and early 50’s) has much more collagen and elastin and will hold the facelift longer than facelifts performed later.
Taking care of your skin is the best answer to maintaining the longevity of your facelift. The use of proper skin care, and that is through the daily application of clinically proven cosmetic products, containing antioxidants, retinoids, niacinamide, alpha and beta hydroxy acids, fibroblast growth factors as well as a good moisturizer and effective sun protection will maintain the buoyancy, tensile strength and elasticity of the skin by improving the health of the skin by strengthening the collagen content, thus extending the life of the facelift.
A rule of thumb is between 5 and 15 years depending on your lifestyle and skin characteristics.
Facelift Tunisia: what you need to know before you start
The first step before undergoing a facelift is the pre-operative assessment. The surgeon evaluates the characteristics of your face and your general health. Following this evaluation, he will be able to make a diagnosis. He will also discuss with you the risks, recovery time and cost of the procedure.
Procedure of the cervico-facial lift in Tunisia
The face lift in Tunisia can be done under general or local anesthesia. The decision will be made following a discussion with the surgeon and the anesthesiologist. The operation lasts between 2 and 4 hours. The hospital stay is 24 to 48 hours.
The surgeon begins by making incisions around the ears or in the hair (so that the scars are not visible). It is from these incisions that the skin will be removed and stretched. The extent of the stretching varies from case to case, depending on the degree of sagging of the skin.
Liposuction may be required if there is significant fatty overload. It is usually performed simultaneously. In some cases, it is a face lipofilling that must be associated with the face and neck lift Tunisia
Once the incisions have been sewn up, a bandage is placed around the head.
The after-effects of facial plastic surgery during a face lift in Tunisia
A feeling of discomfort and painful tension can be observed during the first weeks (or even the first months). It is usually located behind the ears and around the neck. It should be noted that the ears will only regain their normal sensitivity after a few months.
There is an edema (swelling) that usually increases on the second day and disappears after a month. Bruises may also appear on the neck and chin but generally disappear within 2 weeks after the operation*.
It is recommended to rest and avoid physical exertion during the first 10 days. Sports activities should be avoided during the first month.
- A haematoma, which could require rapid drainage.
- Pain or even localized skin necrosis that delays healing (smoking can greatly increase the risk).
- Infection following a facelift procedure is rare.
- Nerve damage, such as damage to a branch of the facial nerve or facial paralysis are rare, and the after-effects usually disappear within a few months. Spinal nerve paralysis (nerve responsible for shoulder elevation) can occur but is even rarer.
- Changes in sensitivity, especially close to the scars around the ears) can sometimes persist, although sensitivity usually returns to normal within 3 to 12 months.
- Abnormal scars, hypertrophic scars, and even keloids, the onset and development of which are unpredictable, can affect the aesthetic results and may require specific local treatments, which are sometimes long term.Overall, you should not overestimate the risks but simply be aware that any surgical intervention, as simple as it can appear, always comes with a risk of complications.
Choosing a qualified and competent plastic surgeon with the training and competence required to know how to avoid these complications, or effectively treat them is key.
