What is a Face Lift?

There are several types of face lift. Generally, the surgeon works in three sections: brow; upper and lower eye area; and lower jaw and neck line. A face lift is often undertaken in conjunction with eye surgery and/or a brow lift, which can create a more enhanced result if the skin is treated pre- and post-operatively with skin rejuvenation peels.*

An increasing number of men and women are requesting this type of surgery at a younger age, keen to achieve a natural, enhanced look rather than waiting until they are in their sixties when the results can be a little too dramatic. However, to achieve the best results, it’s often advisable to take action before the skin has lost too much elasticity.

What can I expect?

Face lifts are normally undertaken under a general anaesthetic with an overnight stay in hospital. Excluding brow or eye surgery, it takes about three hours to lift and re-drape the lower jaw area to achieve a greatly improved neck and jaw line.* The procedure can also involve skin and muscle-tightening and the removal of excess skin. Some cases can be in and out in a day, depending on how involved the procedure is and whether it’s a ‘mini’ or a full face lift. Overnight, a light bandage will be applied to your head. The following day, you will have your hair washed and the bandage will be removed before you leave the hospital. Depending on the type of face lift, expected recovery is usually within two to four weeks.*

Additional Information

It may be possible to use a non-surgical method such as a thread lift, which is a minimally invasive technique that lifts and tightens sagging skin to give a more youthful appearance.* The most appropriate treatment for you will be discussed at your consultation.*
