Facelift | Face Lift | Rhytidectomy

We are all affected by ageing – that irreversible relentless process of tissue degeneration which results in the loss of elasticity and stretching of the skin, its supporting suspensory ligaments and the underlying soft tissues.

Meloplasty is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the visible signs of aging in the face.

The facelift procedure requires a high level of expertise and care. It involves a few hours of surgery to restore a more youthful looking appearance that lasts for many years. Many techniques are available for the surgical restoration of a more youthful – looking face. At Enhance Cosmetic Surgery, we use the latest techniques, for excellent long lasting results. When comparing the costs of recurrent filler injections, with the costs of a facelift surgey, it is clear that a facelift surgey is far more cost effective due to its longer lasting results, and more dramatic lift. We commonly combine the facelift procedure with a neck lift. We call this the “gold standard” for the best facial cosmetic results.

The face and neck lift procedure is commonly performed as a day procedure, where the patient goes home the same day. Swelling and bruising is visible for about 2 weeks, so it may be necessary to take this much time off work before looking more presentable to the public again. Fine stitches are used, for almost invisible scars, and these are removed 1 week after surgery. It is recommended for the first few days after the surgery, to sleep slightly head up, perhaps on 2-3 pillows, to minimise any swelling or bleeding after the surgery.
