The biological process that occurs in all organisms due to the influence of time is called aging. This is a condition that cannot be prevented physiologically. Turkey Medicals member and Specialist Doctor in Antalya medical hospital department said that it is possible to treat the thickening and sagging of the skin that occurs due to the effect of gravity over time.

Antalya Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Specialist who has been explaining that there are alternatives to face lift surgeries for many years, especially for sagging in our face area, Doctor said, “We now prefer to use rope suspension methods in appropriate patients in these cases. As the procedure time, it is a procedure that takes between 0.5-1.5 hours depending on the region to be performed, and it can be performed under local anesthesia under office conditions. A person can return to their daily life after the procedure,” he said.


Stating that there are ropes of different structure and duration of permanence, Dr. said, “A group of ropes disappears completely by itself in the body and has a permanence of 9-12 months on average. A group of ropes, on the other hand, does not melt in the body and remains for life, while the durability of these ropes is on average 2 years. My personal preference is for people who are considering having a rope procedure to first do the first procedure with short-term melting ropes and, if satisfied, repeat the procedure with non-melting ropes,” he said.


Dr. Who said that you can also perform hanging and stretching operations on the eyebrows, cheeks and neck with a rope, said, “It is enough to be over the age of 18 for the procedure. In young patients, we mostly do rope application for eyebrow hanging process rather than face stretching. Surgery is the gold standard method for correcting sagging structures, and rope suspension-stretching is recommended for patients who do not want to have surgery for various reasons, have reasonable expectations, and are eligible for the procedure,” was explained.
