Face Lifting

More effective and less stressful lift

Face lifting improves facial sagging through a more direct method

A face lift makes an incision in front of the ears, peels the loose and wrinkly skin throughout the facial area, and tightens the skin. The tightened skin is firmly affixed, the excess skin is removed, and the incision is stitched back up. This method more directly tightens the loose skin and is wide in its area of improvement.

Therefore, facial lift is the most effective among all other antiaging treatments: it keeps your face smoother and more youthful.

Improvement must follow a precise understanding of the cause

Before any aging, our face features an abundance of collagen sustaining the skin and the subcutaneous fat layer, which is in turn held into place by the myofascial layer underneath.
Over time, the collagen level reduces and the fat increases: the balance is eventually broken, and the myofascial layer collapses as well. Once the myofascial layer loses its strength, it cannot be regained: on the outside, wrinkles take place and our skin starts to droop.

In the end, to fundamentally address facial drooping and wrinkling, the most important task is to restore the collapsed myofascial layer underneath the subcutaneous fat layer.

BANOBAGI tightens all of the facial layers at the same time, including the myofascia

Myofascia is the root cause of skin sagging and wrinkling.
For a more effective face lifting, BANOBAGI tightens all of the facial layers at the same time, including the myofascia. We determine the ideal peeling area and direction, factoring in the individual facial features and muscles, and then make improvements on the entire skin: from the innermost myofascial layer that creates the sagging to the outer skin.

This gives BANOBAGI face lifting its advantages: more natural-looking, effective, and semi-permanent.

Reduced surgical risk through BANOBAGI’s vast experience and skills

Face lift involves making an incision on the face, the last place we want a scar, as well as a wide peeling: this can become a great source of stress for the patients.
Therefore, the surgeon’s ability to reduce such surgical stress is one of the key elements of a successful facial lift treatment.

BANOBAGI’s face lift is a product of efforts to reduce such stress while maintaining the surgery’s effectiveness. A minimal incision, according to the patient’s facial structure, is made along the earfront, and this hides the scar well. We also provide an intensive scar care after the surgery. We plan the soft tissue peeling as wide as possible for the optimal result; and the peeling itself is evenly carried out, without damaging the tissues (e.g., nerves, blood vessels, etc.), by our experienced surgeons with the assistance of full HD endoscopy. Even after the surgery, we provide a systemized aftercare program that treats swelling, bruising, and pain to ensure your swift recovery.
