A facelift or rhytidectomy is a cosmetic procedure that helps reduce the sagginess and looseness of the skin on the face, to give a more youthful facial appearance. A neck lift may also be performed within a facelift procedure. Have a perfect facelift experience in Spain or Bahrain with Dr. Artur Diaz Carandell!

What’s the Procedure for a Facelift?

The facelift procedure may vary depending on the need for a neck lift. The procedure may be classified into three broad steps:


The doctor recommends the best choice of sedation for you. The purpose of these is solely for the comfort of the client.

The incision

The incision depends on the degree of changes you would like to bring to your face. Depending on the looks you want to achieve, you may have to get a neck incision as well.

Closing the incision

The incisions are closed using stitches that may be removed manually or may dissolve with time.


The youthful and young look on the face shows, as the immediate effects of the procedure subside.

Should I get a Facelift?

The skin around the face and neck usually sags with the aging process, with the gravitational effect pulling the loose muscles down. There is no very specific age bracket for this, with smoking and sun exposure often accelerating the sagging process of the skin.

Recovery & Results

A facelift procedure typically takes a few days (up to 10) to fully show recovery. The stitches are removed within the first week, but people usually take up to 2 weeks to go back to their normal routine. Your food intake also helps gain a quick recovery, so pay attention to your food!
