Description 

Essentially, it’s a selection of procedures designed to surgically lift specific areas of the face. There are several facial rejuvenation procedures that are classed as facelift surgery. The most popular types of facelifts include: 

  • Traditional facelift (sometimes called a full lift)
  • Upper facelift
  • Mid facelift
  • SMAS lift
  • Lower facelift (often combined with a neck lift)

The effects of time, gravity and sometimes even genetics, can lead to mild or severe sagging of the facial tissues. During an initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss your options based on your concerns and tailor a bespoke surgical plan for you. We also perform male facelift surgery, so men, don’t hesitate to let us know what you are looking to achieve also.

Frequently Asked Questions

Making the decision to undergo surgical procedures can be a difficult one, and there are many questions you may have. Please read the frequently asked questions below which may answer any queries or ease any concerns you may have.

How can facelift surgery improve your appearance?

This cosmetic surgery facelift removes excess skin and tightens the tissues below the surface of the skin which creates a more youthful appearance. It is often combined with procedures such as eyelid reshaping, neck lift and brow lift.

Who is suitable for this type of surgery?

Surgery to rejuvenate the face is most common in patients over 45, and we perform both female and male facelift surgery. A consultation is needed to ensure we’re able to provide you the most suitable treatment.

What happens during facelift surgery procedure?

Depending on the degree of surgery required it would be performed at the clinic or in hospital. Your surgeon will make incisions to allow the tissues to be tightened and the excess skin removed. This type of facial rejuvenation takes 2 to 3 hours, on average.

What is recovery like?

You might stay overnight, especially if you’ve had general anaesthetic. There will be some swelling and bruising which is normal, and painkillers can be prescribed to manage any discomfort.

Patients are given full aftercare information, including how to care for your scars and when you’re likely to be able to return to work. On average, patients usually take around 4-6 weeks to recover but this varies patient to patient.

How long do the results of face lift surgery last?

This will always depend on what type of facelift procedure you choose and the nature of your own tissues. Most patients find the results of face-lifting to be long-lasting.
