Facial plastic surgery
Neck plastic surgery or necklift is a cosmetic surgical procedure to get rid of neck wrinkles, but also skin folds and excessive fat in the neck region (double chin). During the operation, both neck skin and superficial muscle called platysma are tightened, hence the other name of the procedure, platysmaplasty. Necklift helps to hide signs of aging, restore skin firmness and improve neck contour. Necklift is usually combined with the mini-facelift procedure. The operation is performed under general anesthesia.
Mini-facelift (without necklift)€1547–€9327
Mini-facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure targeting the middle and lower third of the face. It helps to improve face contour and get rid of wrinkles in the lower part of the face and around chin. Mini-facelift is often combined with the necklift procedure. During the operation, small skin incisions are made behind the ears, so the scars will be practically invisible. Through these incisions, deep muscles and subcutaneous tissues are tightened. Also, if necessary, excessive skin is removed. Compared to full facelift, recovery is faster and the operation can be performed under local anesthesia.
Full facelift (involves a necklift)€2450–€12152
Full facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure to rejuvenate the face contour and get rid of temple, cheek and chin wrinkles. This operation can be combined with the necklift procedure or eyelids plastic surgery. During the operation, small skin incisions are made at the hairline to tighten the loose skin and superficial muscles. If necessary, excessive skin is also removed. As a rule, the operation is performed under general anesthesia. Total recovery takes about 2–3 weeks.
Dermal filler treatment€95–€598
Filler treatment is a cosmetic procedure whereby a medicine, containing hyaluronic acid and anesthetic (lidocaine), are injected in the deeper layers of the skin. Filler injections are used to eliminate wrinkles, modify facial contour, and rejuvenate skin. The main component of filler injections is hyaluronic acid, which can be found in all living organisms. Its task is to bind water and to make the skin firm and elastic. Dermal filler injections provide an instant lifting effect, adding volume to the skin and making it look younger and tighter. The procedure takes 15–30 minutes and is almost painless. The result will last for about 12–18 months. Right after the procedure, small hematomas or redness may develop in the injection site, but these will heal in a couple of days.
Hair and eyebrow transplantation
Hair transplantation ( 1000 hairs )€2000–€6015
Hair transplantation is a type of cosmetic surgery whereby hair follicles (hair roots) are transplanted into bald or balding parts of the scalp. Hair transplantation does not increase the number of hairs on your head, because, during the procedure, hair follicles are only relocated. Areas at the back of the head where the density of hairs is higher, can be used as “donor sites” without any visible thinning of hair in those regions. Genetically, areas at the back of the head are more resistant to balding, so that the hair follicles taken from there can be relocated to bald sites. The new hair line is visible right after the procedure, but the final result can be evaluated about six months later.
Botox injections for wrinkles€135–€487
Botox injections can be used to diminish forehead horizontal wrinkles and to reduce the appearance of new mimic wrinkles (emotion wrinkles). Botox inhibits the conduction of nerve signals that mediate the contraction of mimic muscles. Very small doses and fine needles are used for the injections, so that the procedure, which takes about 15–30 minutes, is almost painless. Usually it takes about 3–7 days for the treatment to take effect. Gradually, however, nerve impulses to muscles become effective again and the impact of the injections decreases.
Botox injections for forehead wrinkles€115–€609
Botox injections can be used to diminish forehead frown lines (glabella lines) and to reduce the appearance of new mimic wrinkles (emotion wrinkles). Botox inhibits the conduction of nerve signals that mediate the contraction of mimic muscles. Very small doses and fine needles are used for the injections, so that the procedure, which takes about 15–30 minutes, is almost painless. Usually it takes about 3–7 days for the treatment to take effect. Gradually, however, nerve impulses to muscles become effective again and the impact of the injections decreases.
Plastic surgeon’s consultation€25–€150
A plastic surgeon is specializes in reconstructive and cosmetic surgical procedures. During the first appointment, surgical treatment is usually not performed. First, the plastic surgeon examines and consults the patient, and prescribes necessary tests and analyses. After that, an appropriate treatment is chosen together with the patient. Plastic surgeons perform procedures at both clinical indications and at the patient’s request. Clinical indications include correcting a serious visual defect in patient’s appearance, such as breast reconstruction after tumor removal. However, at the patient’s request, plastic surgeons perform purely aesthetic operations like breast augmentation or liposuction as well.
