Face Lift

Face lift

A facelift is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to reduce visible signs of aging in the face and neck, such as sagging skin, deep creases, and loss of muscle tone. It involves tightening underlying tissues, removing excess skin, and repositioning the skin for a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

Procedure Time:

2-4 hours

Return to Work:

1 - 2 weeks

Full Recovery:

4 - 6 weeks




What to expect
  1. Initial Consultation:

Embark on your facelift journey with an initial consultation led by a seasoned consultant specialized in facelift procedures. This is your opportunity to express your goals, concerns, and expectations while the surgeon evaluates your suitability for the procedure.

  1. Comprehensive Evaluation:

Your overall health, facial anatomy, and skin condition will undergo a thorough assessment to determine the most appropriate facelift technique tailored to your needs.

  1. Surgical Planning:

Following evaluation, the surgical plan will be meticulously crafted, considering factors such as incision placement, extent of lift, and any additional procedures to complement the facelift, such as neck lift or eyelid surgery.

  1. Anesthesia Administration:

Facelift procedures are typically performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation to ensure your comfort throughout the surgery.

  1. Incision and Tissue Manipulation:

The surgeon skillfully makes discreet incisions, often along the hairline and natural creases, to access underlying facial tissues. These tissues are then repositioned and tightened to restore a more youthful appearance.

  1. Fat Grafting or Dermal Fillers (Optional):

In some cases, fat grafting or dermal fillers may be used to restore volume to areas of the face that have lost fullness, such as the cheeks or lips.

  1. Skin Redraping and Closure:

Excess skin is gently redraped and trimmed before meticulously closing the incisions with sutures or surgical adhesive.

  1. Post-Surgery Recovery:

Expect some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort following the procedure. Your surgeon will provide comprehensive post-operative instructions to facilitate a smooth recovery process.

  1. Healing and Scarring:

While some scarring is inevitable, incisions are strategically placed to minimize visibility and are expected to fade over time, leaving you with natural-looking results.

  1. Revealing Transformation:

As swelling subsides and healing progresses, the full extent of your facelift’s rejuvenating effects will become increasingly apparent, with smoother contours and a revitalized appearance.

  1. Long-Term Maintenance:

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including skincare regimen and sun protection, is crucial for prolonging the results of your facelift. Regular follow-up appointments with your surgeon will also ensure optimal long-term outcomes.

  1. Realistic Expectations and Future Touch-Ups:

While facelifts offer significant rejuvenation, they do not halt the natural aging process. Some patients may opt for additional procedures or non-surgical treatments in the future to maintain their results.

Facelift surgery is a safe and effective way to address signs of aging and restore a more youthful appearance. However, it’s essential to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon experienced in facial rejuvenation to achieve the best possible outcome.
