The Reconstructive Facelift (RFL) activates the body’s powerful reserves, specifically increasing blood circulation.

Increased blood circulation nourishes the cells, delivering oxygen and nutrients to them and at the same time removes decay products, due to which the lifting effect is achieved. 

But what’s good for healthy cells and a healthy body can be bad for a compromised body and cells.

There are situations when increased blood circulation is undesirable and can provoke an exacerbation of the disease or spread an infection. Such diseases include, for example, diseases of the autoimmune system, such as lupus, or Impaired skin integrity – wounds and cuts on the face, hot or swollen tissues, and any infectious diseases.

A direct contraindication for practicing the RFL is a disease in an active form or an exacerbation stage.

  • Spinal injuries, anomalies, or diseases
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Skin diseases (eczema, fungal diseases, flat warts)
  • Inflammatory diseases of the facial and    trigeminal nerves
  • Diseases of the lymphatic system
  • Cerebral circulation disorders
  • Hypertension ( Systolic is at 160 mm Hg or higher and diastolic is at 100 mm Hg or higher).
  • Oncological diseases 
  • Severe osteoporosis 
  • Severe general diseases – autoimmune diseases, diabetes mellitus, severe vascular pathology, pathologies of the endocrine system, systemic connective tissue diseases, etc.
  • ENT diseases in the acute stage 
  • Plastic surgery on the face and neck (it is necessary to refrain from RFL for 6 months)
  • Psychiatric disorders and some neurological diseases
  • Thyroid diseases*

          *RFL can be performed if: 

– the function of the thyroid gland reduced (hypothyroidism). 

– the structure of the thyroid gland is not changed and the level of hormones is within the normal range. 

-If the structure of the thyroid gland is changed (cysts, tumors, inflammatory processes, nodular goiter, autoimmune thyroiditis) the RFL  is conditionally contraindicated and only permitted with a doctor’s approval.
