Face lift surgery (also known as a rhytidectomy) is one of the most common surgical procedures undertaken by people who wish to revitalise their appearance and combat the most visible signs of ageing. This type of surgery restores the contour of your face and neck to produce a more youthful appearance.
A more youthful appearance is achieved through the tightening or elimination of sagging skin, elevation of facial muscles, loss of skin tone (causing jowls) and elimination of excess fat from the cheeks, chin and neck. Face lift surgery involves an incision along your hairline, and around the ear, which allows your underlying facial muscle tissue to be tightened, and any excess skin and fat removed.
A face lift can be combined with various other cosmetic procedures such as, neck lifts, chin lifts, brow lift, eyelid rejuvenation and fat grafting in order to provide a customised rejuvenation solution for each individual pursuant to their needs and desires.
Mini facelifts are similar to the full procedure, however, differ in the extent of work performed. Generally, mini facelifts are less invasive and require less downtime and recovery time. Mini facelifts are perfect for individuals with minimal skin sagging and only experiencing early-onset signs of aging.
The goal of face lift surgery is to create a natural looking shape that compliments your face and results in improved quality of life.
