Face Lift

What is a face lift?

A face lift tightens the skin and tissue on the face to make your skin look younger and healthier. A face lift should get rid of wrinkles and lift your muscles.

What types of face lift are available?

Deep plane face lift
This lift treats the tissue layers and muscles, it is the most invasive option and lasts for 10-15 years. The procedure repositions tissue to achieve a youthful, wrinkle free appearance.

Mid face lift
This procedure should leave the least scarring and repositions the fatty layer over the cheekbones to restore your skin and face. This surgery targets cheeks, nose and mouth.

Mini facelift
This is a more temporary solution, with the least invasive procedure. The skin is repositioned using smaller incisions, and the surgery only targets skin and soft tissue.

Is a face lift for you?

Before choosing to have a face lift, you need to consider:

  • Are there less invasive techniques that could resolve your problem?
  • Are you comfortable with a 3-4 hour surgery?
  • Are you aware of the possible complications?
  • Can you take time off?
  • Do you smoke?
  • What are your expectations for a face lift?

You should always speak to your surgeon about all of these things in the consultation, before going ahead with the surgery.
