FTC ( Fine Thread Contour Therapy ) METHOD
This method, which is widespread in Europe, has been developed in recent years and is a new form of face lifting. With this method, special threads are placed under the skin.
FTC (Fine Thread Contour Therapy) method: The PDO threads are not foreign to human tissue and can be placed under the skin where the wrinkles are located with the help of fine needles. These threads are pulled until the desired tension is reached.
This method can be applied to the face, neck and several other parts of the body. This method can be used mainly on hanging cheeks, eyebrows and eyelids, as well as for tightening the forehead, the chin and the neck. Special PDO (polydioxane) threads are inserted at the marked places. As there are different methods of application, the specialist decides which one to use.
This special procedure is easy to use and helps the skin to restructure. The problem of "sagging and wrinkled skin" is solved in just one treatment.
After FTC there is no swelling, discoloration or pain. People who have used FTC don’t need to stay at the hospital or at home for recovery. On the day of the FTC, they can go back to their normal everyday life.
FTC is one of the most comfortable and trustworthy methods of face lifting, which has been further improved. Because there are no interfaces, no stitches, no discoloration of the skin, no swelling, no one around you will notice that you’ve been through an aesthetic procedure.
The ideal persons for face lifting are people whose facial skin or skin on the neck begins to "hang" and have no other diseases. This is generally the case for men and women over 40. But people who have these problems genetically can also have them done at an earlier age.

Skin tightening is usually performed under general anesthesia. However, at the request of the patient, deep sleep-like deep sedatives can be administered by the anaesthetist.
If fat has to be removed from the neck, an incision of 5-10 mm is made in the suction cannula under the chin. An even suction of the fat is then carried out on the neck.
During the facelift, the incisions are hidden between the contour of the ear and the hairline. These incisions do not cause hair loss and the patient can wear any desired hairstyle.
In order to preserve the facial chops in men, the incisions are relocated. To create a younger face, the structures under the skin are defined as they were in the patient’s young age. To avoid tension, the skin is positioned at the hairline on soft tissue and excess skin is removed.
The skin is closed with fine sewing materials so that no scars remain as the interfaces heal. After the operation, a pressureless bandage is applied. The patient is discharged from the hospital the same or next day.
The cannula is removed the day after the operation. The loose bandage is replaced by an elastic bandage and the patient will have to wear it for a few days. The incisions must be kept soft with an ointment for 10 days. Treatment with antibiotics lasts 5 days. If redness or pain occurs, the doctor should be consulted immediately.
The stitches are pulled in 4-7 days. The patient should rest for 2 weeks and avoid the sun. After 2 weeks make-up can be applied again and the patient is able to work again. Until the patient has recovered completely, he will be checked every now and then. After the 3-month and 12-month check-ups, the postoperative care is finished.
Our face is the mirror of our social life, our interpersonal relationships, our character and our soul life; and so we pay the most attention to our face. So most aesthetic treatments and operations in this field are condensed. In the face there are many different types of beauty treatments from the hairline to the ears to the chin to the double chin. In order to preserve the era we call the "Golden Era", we do a lot to prevent skin sagging and wrinkling.
Skin tightening ( ritidectomy ) is an operative method to prevent the age-related slackening and the formation of wrinkles by tightening the skin.
All initiatives related to facial aging are called facial rejuvenation. As a person ages, years, sun rays, everyday stress and other causes (such as nicotine, alcohol and poor nutrition) change the appearance of the skin. It slackens, becomes wrinkled, blotchy and uneven. An old face looks like this: Deep forehead wrinkles, deep eyebrows, drooping eyelids, bags under the eyes as well as wrinkles around the eyes, deep wrinkles have developed in the nose and mouth area, the cheeks are drooping, the jaw contours no longer exist, the neck has a lot of fat and stripes of skin have developed. The skin has lost its vitality, sun spots and birthmark-like spots have appeared on it, it is thin and wrinkled.
Skin tightening, which is a part of aesthetic and plastic surgery, can help to relieve sagging and unevenness of the forehead, face and neck. The fat in the cheeks and neck is sucked off, the facial facies and the fat tissue are placed in their anatomically defined places. Skin tissue is renewed, eyelids are straightened and all other necessary applications are performed.
What is the average age for skin tightening?
The ideal persons for face lifting are people who have sagging skin on their face and neck but have not lost their elasticity and do not have any other diseases. This operation is usually performed on men and women over the age of 40. However, it can also be performed partially or completely on people who have a genetic predisposition.
Which technique is used for skin tightening?
Skin tightening is not scar-free. However, as these can be hidden, they are not visible. These scars are hidden in the area of the temples, in front of and behind the ear. If fat is removed under the chin, a 3-5mm scar remains. When the eyelids are lifted and the forehead tightened, scars remain in the crease of the eyelid and in the hairy area. But in the face these scars are hardly visible and can be hidden well. Additional treatments such as nose, eyelid wrinkles, etc. can be performed in one session. The operation takes 4-6 hours.
How long does the healing process take after the skin tightening operation?
The patient can be discharged on the same day, but it is better to stay one night for monitoring. Swelling, colour changes, numbness or a feeling of tension usually appear on the face. As the facial nerves may be affected by anaesthesia, slight asymmetric changes may occur. These disappear automatically within 3-5 days.
The head bandage is applied in such a way that the eye, nose and mouth areas are left out. In order to prevent blood formation in the tissue, silicone drainage tubes can be used. These are removed after 2 days at the latest.
The bandage is removed after 2-3 days, a general examination is carried out, the bandage is changed and during this time the hair can be washed. If the stitches do not fall off by themselves, they are removed after 5-7 days. On the 2nd day after the operation the patient can go back to his/her usual routine.
When the swelling has subsided after 1 week, the patient is able to work again and can put on make-up again. It is recommended that the patient does not do any heavy sports for 2 months and should protect himself/herself from external blows. In addition, the patient should avoid bright sunlight during this time.
The skin changes on the face and neck that a person has undergone can last for 5-10 years or even a lifetime, depending on the person's structure and the environmental influences they are exposed to. 3 weeks after the operation, you can get an idea of the changes in your face. It takes 6-12 months to complete the change.
