How painful is this surgery?

It is almost painless. What characterizes the treatment according to patient testimonials is no pain, but a feeling of “weight” - swelling of the face, which gradually subsides in the first 24-48 hours.

Do I have to stay in hospital after surgery?

As a precaution, patients remain in the hospital for one or two 24-hour period after surgery. In less extensive surgery can go home the same day.

What is the recovery time after surgery?

The healing time in every person as well as the reaction of any body after a surgery is different. They usually return back to their activities after one or two weeks, while full restoration is noticed in the first month.

How long does the result last?

After this kind of operation the tissues of the person’s skin are being returned where they were several years ago. In this way, the skin aging is continued but much slower. As if we turn the clock back several years. Key elements contributing to duration of effect is the surgical technique, gene predisposition, the quality of skin and collagen. Equally important factors are the protection from sunlight, avoiding smoking and maintaining a stable weight. The average duration is 10-15 years.
