Ageing and Well-being: Facelift in Turkey

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Many of us would like to stay young and beautiful forever. Unfortunately, the ageing process cannot be stopped without medical intervention. Years do take their toll, and in old age, we may not look as attractive as we would like. That’s why people choose plastic surgery. The good news is that the cost of medical treatment in Turkey is one of the cheapest in the world. 

Thanks to the rapid development of Turkish medicine, more and more foreign patients are choosing this country for treatment. Thousands of patients travel every year to have a facelift in Turkey.

Benefits of Turkey

The nature of Turkey charms with its picturesque scenery, the sound of the sea and sunsets. Also, Turkey has many state-of-the-art medical clinics with world-class surgeons. Nature in Turkey will allow you to be in a good mood during your treatment, and the warm climate in the country helps you recover more quickly after surgery.

All modern medical centres in Turkey have up-to-date equipment, which reduces the risk of post-operative complications. Despite the high level of services provided, the cost of medical treatment in Turkey remains lower than in Europe on average by 30%. Turkey ranks second in the world by the number of foreign patients in the country.

What is a facelift?

The facelift is a surgical operation that aims to remove sagging skin and correct wrinkles, to rejuvenate. After the procedure, you will look a few years younger.

Facelift surgery usually is recommended to all people after 50 years for improving aesthetic appearance. It helps women feel more confident and attractive, which greatly improves their mood.

Level of Turkish medicine

Facelift surgery in Turkey is performed by professionals to minimise the risks to your health. The procedure itself takes several hours, and full recovery after it takes several weeks.

It’s no secret that plastic surgeons in Turkey are among the best in the world. Their vast experience allows them to perform successfully hundreds of plastic surgeries per day. Besides facelift in Turkey, such procedures are popular: 

  • Eyelid surgery.
  • Breast augmentation.
  • Neck lift.
  • Liposuction.
  • Brow lift.

Facelift and eyelid surgery can be performed simultaneously, during one surgical intervention.


Despite the great desire to look younger, you must remember that a facelift is a surgical procedure and it must be taken seriously. You should consult your doctor before performing the operation and undergo some examinations. Unfortunately, as with any operation, the facelift has certain contraindications:

  • Pregnancy or lactation period
  • Oncological diseases
  • Blood diseases
  • Decompensated diabetes mellitus 
  • Infectious diseases in the acute phase
  • Decompensated disorders of the cardiovascular system

The best hospitals for a facelift in Turkey

Even though all clinics in Turkey have a high level of quality, we can highlight the most popular ones. 

  • Skin Health Turkey. It is a multidisciplinary clinic that treats more than a million foreign patients annually. It is equipped with the latest technologies and has experienced doctors of all specialties. Every day more than a dozen plastic surgeries are successfully performed in the hospital.
  • Gaziosmanpasa Hospital of Yeniyuzyil University. It has over ten modern operating theatres at its disposal. Comfortable wards and a huge area of the hospital will allow you to recover from a facelift in the shortest time possible. 


After facelift surgery, you may have swelling, haemorrhages, facial pain and other unpleasant feelings. To let your skin recover from the operation fully, you need to go through a rehabilitation period carefully.

Clinics in Turkey have the best conditions for rehabilitation – pleasant climate, professional care, availability of modern rehabilitation equipment. All of this will reduce discomfort after treatment.
