Rhytidectomy (Facelift surgery)

Facelifts can truly transform an individual from looking old with sagging skin to a youthful and vibrant young person. Facelifts may take at least 10 years off of an individual's appearance and brighten their entire mood. Most individuals receive face-lifts to correct sagging at the neck, on the cheeks or at the jaw line. Most facelifts require an incision on each side of the face and at the back of the ear. As the skin is lifted, the excess skin is removed yielding a more youthful appearance.

Methodology of Facelift Surgery:

  1. A face lift involves the skillful removal of excess facial skin from the neck, chin and cheek areas under general anaesthetic.
  2. Starting high in the temple area the hair at the incision courses down following the curves in front of the ear round the earlobe and up behind the ear before curving gently back into the hair again.
  3. It may be necessary to add an incision under the chin which is also well hidden.
  4. Using these incisions on both sides, the skin and deep tissues are remodeled and re-draped.
  5. Stitches secure layers of tissue and incisions and metal clips may be used on the scalp.
  6. The scars will be hidden around your ears or in your hairline and will usually fade over 3 to 6 months.
  7. The procedure normally takes two to three hours and usually requires a 1-2 day hospital stay.

Recovery Post Facelift Surgery:

  1. Following the operation, you may experience some bruising and swelling around the area and you may be asked to keep your head elevated for a couple of days to keep any swelling down.
  2. Any drainage tube will normally be removed after a day or two and bandages are removed after 1-5 days.
  3. Your stitches will be removed after 5 days and any metal clips in scalp are removed after 2 weeks.
  4. You will have follow-up visits in the months after surgery to check on your progress.
