Facelift Surgery

Develop a firmer, fresher and younger appearance

At SMG, we can help you turn back the clock by improving the most visible signs of ageing through facelift and neck lift surgery.

Years of exposure to the sun and the stresses of daily life can be seen on all our faces. Neck lift and facelift surgery — or rhytidectomy — aims to combat these effects by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles and redraping the skin, giving you a more youthful appearance.

Who’s facelift surgery for?

The best candidate for a facelift is a person whose face and neck have begun to sag, but whose skin still has some elasticity and whose bone structure is strong and well defined. A facelift can make you look younger and fresher, and it may well enhance your self-confidence.

You are a good candidate for facelift surgery if you have one or more of the following conditions:

  • Jowls or loss of a well-defined jaw line
  • Deep wrinkles in the cheeks and sagging around the cheekbones
  • Loose skin, wrinkles, vertical ‘cords’ or excess fatty tissue in the neck

Our team of experts are here to explain the ins and outs of the surgery process and give you the best face and neck lift surgery advice and aftercare support.

Before you decide to go ahead with a face lift, SMG will offer you a thorough one-to-one free medical consultation with a surgeon who specialises in facelift surgery. During the consultation, you will be asked about the results you would like to achieve from a facelift. This will help your surgeon to understand your expectations and determine whether they can realistically be achieved.

In evaluating your suitability for facelift surgery, your surgeon will assess the thickness, texture and elasticity of your skin, and the severity of the wrinkles and folds. Your hairline will be examined to determine where incisions can be discreetly placed. All of these factors, as well as your bone structure and underlying tissue, will be considered in developing a personal treatment plan.

Thanks to SMG and our tailored payment plans, face and neck lift surgery could now be a possibility for you. Contact us for a brochure or to arrange a free consultation with one of our face and neck lift surgeons.

SMG’s goal is to make your experience as easy and comfortable as possible. Your facelift surgery can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eye bag removal, or nose reshaping.

Facelift surgery from SMG removes excess fat from your face and neck giving you a smoother, younger looking face.

Facelift Procedure

Facelift surgery usually requires a general anaesthetic and involves one night’s stay in hospital.

Individual factors and personal preferences will determine the specific technique selected for your facelift. Your surgeon will discuss with you the particular method that she or he recommends for achieving the best result in your case.

Generally, an incision is hidden in the natural contour of your ear, and then extends around the earlobe and back into the hairline.
Through these discreet incisions, your surgeon will free the skin from the underlying tissue.
After the skin has been pulled up and back, the excess is removed. In some instances, the deeper tissues may also need to be repositioned.

The procedure may also include the removal of fatty tissue from the area underneath the chin.

The Recovery Period

After face lift surgery you will be asked to restrict your activities and simply relax for a week or two. Generally, the greatest amount of swelling occurs 24 to 48 hours after surgery, but it may take several weeks before all the puffiness is resolved.

Most bruising will disappear within two weeks. After a few days, you will be permitted to wear make-up, which will help to conceal any discoloration. You will also experience some numbness in the facial area, which may be present for several weeks. Stitches are usually removed in stages over a period of 5–10 days.

Recovery time varies among individuals. In many instances, you will be able to resume most of your normal activities within two to three weeks and begin gentle exercise four weeks after surgery.

The results of your facelift may be dramatic or subtle, depending on how you looked before surgery, and the type of look you wanted. Since the healing process is gradual, you should expect to wait several weeks for an accurate picture of your “new look”.

Please be aware that a facelift cannot correct conditions such as sagging eyebrows, excess skin in the upper and lower eyelids or wrinkles around the mouth. SMG can provide further information if you’re interested in procedures to treat these issues.

Following your face and neck surgery procedure, we’ll arrange frequent visits and examinations, so we can be certain that your surgical face lift is progressing as intended.

Considerations

Every year, many people undergo successful facelift surgery, experience no major problems and are delighted with the results. Anyone considering surgery, however, should be aware of both the benefits and the risks. Your surgeon will discuss these with you during your consultation.
