SURGICAL PROCEDURE

Mini Face Lift/ Full Face Lift

TREATMENT OVERVIEW

A Face Lift, clinically known as Rhytidectomy, is a sophisticated cosmetic surgical procedure that rejuvenates the facial appearance by mitigating visible signs of ageing such as sagging, wrinkles, and loss of skin elasticity.


The procedure is particularly beneficial for individuals who find that factors like the natural aging process, genetic predisposition, and environmental elements—such as prolonged sun exposure and lifestyle choices like smoking—have led to undesirable changes in their facial appearance. Beyond the aesthetic realm, a Face Lift can also offer functional benefits, particularly when issues related to facial muscle tone or skin laxity are affecting the individual’s quality of life.

THE PROCEDURE

The journey towards undergoing a Face Lift begins with an in-depth initial consultation. During this pivotal meeting, the surgeon comprehensively evaluates the patient’s facial skin, underlying muscle structure, and soft tissue.  The consultation serves as a platform for the patient to discuss their specific aesthetic goals, functional needs, and concerns. Based on this discussion, the surgeon develops a tailored surgical plan designed to align closely with the patient’s expectations and what is surgically achievable. This plan will include intricate details such as the type of incisions to be made, the surgical techniques to be employed, and the expected post-operative outcomes. Anesthesia is a critical component of the surgical experience, and options are discussed in detail with the patient. Factors such as the patient’s overall health, comfort level, and the procedure’s complexity are considered. While local anaesthesia and sedation may be appropriate for minor procedures, general anaesthesia may be recommended for more intricate cases or based on the patient’s preference.
The surgical techniques involved in a Face Lift are meticulously planned and executed. Incisions are strategically made to be well-concealed, often along the hairline, around the ears, or under the chin. The surgeon tightens the underlying muscles through these incisions, repositions the soft tissue, and removes excess skin to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance. The incisions are then carefully closed with sutures, often using advanced techniques to minimise scarring. Following the surgical procedure, additional treatments such as the application of antibiotic ointments and specialised dressings, may be administered to minimize the risk of infection and facilitate a smoother healing process.

BEFORE & AFTER

THE BENEFITS

You may choose to undergo a Face Lift procedure for a number of reasons:

A Face Lift offers transformative aesthetic benefits. Enhancing the face’s contours, tightening loose skin, and reducing wrinkles can bring about a more balanced and harmonious facial profile. This can also lead to improved jawline definition and a more pronounced neckline, which can have a ripple effect on one’s overall appearance and self-perception.
While primarily an aesthetic procedure, a Face Lift can also offer functional advantages. For example, some individuals may find that sagging skin and weakened facial muscles can contribute to issues related to facial functionality, such as difficulties in speech or chewing. By correcting these issues, the procedure can alleviate these functional challenges, leading to improved oral health and overall well-being

The combined aesthetic and functional improvements often lead to significant psychological benefits. Patients frequently report a boost in self-confidence, a more positive self-image, and an enhanced quality of life, which can positively impact their social interactions, professional engagements, and overall well-being.
