A face lift is a surgical removes and tightens skin and tissues on the face and neck, as well as removes excess fat. By enhancing the contours of the face and neck, a Facelift aims to improve signs of ageing.
Skin on the face can start to age as contours start to fade and the skin starts to sag, and can be created and enhanced by a number of influences, such as:
- Sun damage
- Loss of facial fat
- Thinning of skin
A face lift aims to combat these signs of ageing by tightening the face. An incision is made in front of the ear and extends into the hairline and behind the ear. This means that incisions can be easily hidden as they are in the natural creases and can be concealed by the hairline.
Our surgeons will work closely with their patients to determine if the procedure is right for you, as well as to inform you of what to expect throughout the process.
