Face Lift

The visible signs of ageing such as lines and wrinkles and loose skin no longer have to be an inevitable part of getting old, and many people choose to reverse these signs with the help of face lift surgery. Face lift surgery, also known as rhytidectomy, is one of the most commonly requested procedures by both men and women who want to look as young as they feel. It is performed to remove or reduce the skin that has lost its natural elasticity – usually around the eyes, mouth and jaw line – smooth the skin, reduce lines and wrinkles and rejuvenate a tired-looking appearance.

About Face Lift Cosmetic Surgery

A traditional face lift will involve your surgeon making a surgical incision along your hairline, down past the front of your ears and into the hairline behind the ears. Because of the careful positioning of the incision, your scarring will be hidden within the hair and natural creases of the face and it will fade quickly until it is barely visible. Once the incision has been made the surgeon will very carefully separate the skin from the underlying tissue, before repositioning excess fat and tightening facial muscles. The skin will then be lifted and stitched into place along the original incision and any excess skin removed. Face lifts, like other procedures, can be done with local anaesthetic for appropriate candidates. At your consultation you will find out if you qualify for a local anaesthetic procedure and should you not be then we can refer you to one of our professional colleagues.
