Facelift

Facelift surgery is performed under general anaesthesia, with the operation taking about 3 hours, and usually requires an overnight stay in hospital.

There are many different types of facelift, but the longest lasting techniques involve tightening the deeper muscle layer of the face as well as the skin. Tightening the muscle layer gives a longer lasting result and reduces the tension on the skin closure, producing better scars.

Incisions are hidden mainly within the hairline, starting in the natural crease in front of the ear, going under and behind the earlobe and back into the scalp, and usually there is also a small incision under the chin. The muscle layer is tightened, with any excess fat being removed, and the loose excess skin is then removed and the wound closed.

Information about Facelift

Preparing for Surgery

It is important to stop smoking at least 6 weeks before the surgery – smoking slows blood flow to the skin and increases the chance of healing problems after the surgery. Aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications for arthritis, and some vitamins and herbal medications can cause bleeding and also need to be stopped 10 days before the surgery.
