Face lift

As the skin ages it loses its natural bounce and elasticity. As a result the look of your skin can become increasingly saggy and dull. Most people also start to notice the visible signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles, and these tend to be most prominent around the eyes, nose and mouth. A face lift is an effective means of smoothing out lines and wrinkles and creating a fresher, younger complexion.

Non-surgical face lifts or anti-ageing treatments like fillers, botox and peelings are widely available but they will never achieve the effectiveness and results of the traditional facelift.

The plastic surgeon removes excess skin from the neck, chin and cheek areas and smoothes out what is remaining, whilst at the same time tightening the tissue underneath. Both men and women can undergo the procedure either for cosmetic / aesthetic purposes or even for medical/reconstructive purposes. There are various cosmetic surgery methods for doing this but your plastic surgeon will discuss with you all of the options available so that you can make an informed decision as to what method is right for you.  It can be combined with brow lift or eyelid surgery for better results.

The traditional method of carrying out a facelift involves making an incision that follows the hairline; starting at the temple and flowing down and around as it curves behind the ears underneath and back up to the next ear, curving around that one and returning into the hair. If your jaw line is also sagging then the incision will go under the chin to correct this issue. After this incision is completed, the skin is lifted, pulled back and then the excess skin that is now overlapping is trimmed away

Excess fat is removed, the muscles are tightened and the skin is reattached where the incision was initially made. This is done with the use of stitches in some cases with metal clips also an option in some cases. As with other procedures, the initial incisions are made so that visible scarring is minimal, with the scars hidden away behind the ears and in the hair. After the surgery is completed, you can expect a hospital stay for around one or two days.

A mini facelift is a procedure that allows a surgeon to reposition or alter the skin and muscles of the face in order to minimize blemishes, wrinkles, and other defects that accompany aging. A mini facelift is similar to a full facelift but corrects minor problems and allows for minimal to no scarring to form on the patient following the operation. Scarring is only created behind the patient's ear and along the hairline. Both of these locations are generally hidden from the public view.  A mini facelift is excellent when the person desires to correct the initial signs of aging on precise region, but for those who are beyond 40 and have serious aging difficulties may demands more invasive strategies.
