What is a facelift?

It is the process of improving the appearance of the face and jaw, by pulling and tightening the skin of the face to remove wrinkles, and get rid of signs of aging, pressure, and exposure to sunlight, which damage the skin in the long run.

The face-lift procedure in NOVA clinics is done surgically, by tightening the muscles of the face to determine its appearance, rejuvenating its structure, and removing fat, and excess skin in it, to obtain the freshness and brilliance of the face. Our highly experienced doctors, who are accredited by the Ministry of Health, perform this procedure very carefully, so that it does not affect the shape of the nose, mouth or ears. With great care, it guarantees the best results for the patient without any scars, with a quality that lasts about fifteen years.

Who needs a face-lift?

• People who have lost the normal texture of the muscles and the elasticity of the skin on the face and neck.

• Those with deep wrinkles around the nose and mouth.

• Those who have deep wrinkles in both the neck and face.

• Who looks tired and old.

• Those who have flabbiness in the neck and chin.

In general, people wishing to undergo the operation must have good physical health.

How does the face-lift surgery occur?

The operation is usually performed under general anaesthesia and rarely with local anaesthesia.

• The surgeon will first make incisions above the hairline from either side of the scalp, to the front or back of the ear.

• Then he makes surgical incisions under the chin, in case the jaw needs to be tightened.

• Then he removes the excess facial skin.

• The surgeon then pulls and tightens the remaining skin back and forth, to remove signs of aging and restore the freshness of the facial skin.

• After that, the doctor sews the skin of the face, and puts a bandage on it to reduce swelling.

Sometimes, the doctor redistributes facial fat and tissue, to give natural results.

The final results may take 6 to 9 months to be complete and visible.

What happens during recovery?

• Two to four weeks off work is required for full recovery.

• You should not shower or bring water to the dressings during the first two days,

• Strenuous activities should be avoided.

• The head should be kept upwards supported by pillows for a few days to reduce swelling.

• After about a week, the stitches are removed, or they dissolve on their own.

• After several weeks, the scars and redness fade away.

• After 6 to 9 months, the full results of the operation can be seen.

• NOVA provides a free medical package to avoid side effects.



What is rhinoplasty?

It is a surgical procedure to reshape or adjust the size of the nose by correcting a number of defects, such as a curved or enlarged nose, bumps, an off-centered or crooked nose due to a previous injury. It is a true cosmetic treatment aimed at improving the aesthetic appearance of the nose.

For best results, the doctor must be skilled and experienced and that’s what we offer at NOVA Clinics. In addition to being granted a guarantee certificate, we have a team of the best Turkish doctors with more than 10 years of experience.

How is rhinoplasty done?

• Rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia.

• The surgical technique is chosen, depending on the condition of the nose and the desired goals.

• The incisions are made inside the nose. Thus, no scars will appear after healing.

NOVA uses two different main techniques for rhinoplasty. And it is the task of our expert doctor to choose the most optimal method that suits the requirements of the case.


What is the process of correcting prominent ear?

Prominent ear (bat ears) is a serious problem that cannot be hidden in men. As for women, despite having to be satisfied with one hairstyle to cover their ears, it remains a problem for them as well.

Ear correction surgery is one of the shortest surgical procedures. It takes from 15 minutes to a maximum of one hour. The operation involves reshaping the skin and cartilage behind the ear.

It is a practical solution to improve many people’s lives by making their ears look less prominent and more aesthetically pleasing, giving them more self-confidence.

Who can perform the operation?

Women, men and children over 6 years of age who are in good health and want to have a natural and attractive appearance for their ears can have this procedure.

NOVA doctors also recommend performing this procedure at an early age, because advancing age makes the cartilage in the ear more solid.

How is the process of correcting the prominent ear?

• This operation is performed under local anaesthesia.

• The surgeon makes an incision in the back of the ear, at the point where the ear meets the head.

• The surgeon reshapes the cartilage in that area, and pulls it back to improve its appearance and give the appearance of a natural ear.

• For better results, the surgeon may need to remove small pieces of cartilage.

• In the event of a previous asymmetry, the surgeon will perform the correction, at the same time as the operation.

• Finally, the surgical incision is sutured.

The prominent ear correction surgery can be combined with other operations such as rhinoplasty.

What happens during recovery?

• In the first few days after the operation, the patient may feel some pain or numbness in the ears. You may also feel tingling, for a few weeks.

• It requires wearing a compression garment for a week, to reduce swelling and prevent any infection, or improper movement of the ear after the operation.

• Hair should not be washed during this period.

• Results appear almost instantaneously.

Non-surgical treatments

Face lift injection

At NOVA we have three main types of facial injection treatments that guarantee instant and long-lasting natural results for a facelift.

Our specialists provide accurate consultations to find out which type of injection is the most appropriate and best.

The three treatments are:

• Facial Botox injections:

Botox (the most popular cosmetic treatment) is made from neurotoxins produced by bacteria called botulinum toxin. It is used to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the muscles, and improvement becomes noticeable within a few days. It takes two to four days for Botox to attach to the nerve endings, which normally stimulate the muscles to contract. The maximum effect usually occurs within 10 to 14 days. Botox is a safe and effective treatment without side effects. Anyone who suffers from facial wrinkles can benefit from it.

Facial fillers:

  • A treatment that fills in hollows, lines and wrinkles in as little as 30 minutes. Its results last from 6 months to more than a year. Injectable fillers fill in wrinkles, such as fine lines or folds. It works to hide unbalanced spots. NOVA experts use wrinkle fillers to enlarge and tighten the cheeks, chin, jaw and temples, and to fill in the delicate lips. All of our doctors are dermatologists, certified and experts in this field. Correct use of implants by experts, reduces risks and gives better results.

Autologous fat transfer:

In this treatment, fat is transferred from parts of the patient’s body (such as the buttocks) to the face and neck, to reduce wrinkles and remove signs of aging. As a result of using the patient’s own autologous fat in the procedure, this method is considered safe and natural.
