The most common signs of ageing are the lines, wrinkles and loose skin that start to sag. Since these are an inevitable part of the natural ageing process, many people choose to reverse them in order to regain their youthful look, making them look as young as they feel inside. Rhytidectomy is a facelift procedure that requires excess skin removal in order to compensate for the loss of natural elasticity of the skin usually around the mouth and jawline.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I have visible scarring after a facelift?

Scarring is maintained to a minimum using the most cutting-edge facelift techniques now available. The locations of the incisions will be carefully chosen to minimise visibility during healing and over time. Both for men and women, they are also very well hidden.

Often, the hairline and the area around the ears are where a facelift leaves scars. This indicates that your hair can help conceal the scars. Your scars will fade and flatten with time and good care, becoming practically undetectable.

How long will a facelift last?

The effects should endure for several years. The facelift tries to combat the most difficult apparent indicators of ageing because the ageing process is ongoing. You can extend the results of the facelift as long as possible by leading a healthy lifestyle and following good skincare practices.

Will I have bruising and swelling after a facelift?

Swelling is a side effect of all surgical treatments, including facelifts. Bruising following surgery varies depending on the patient’s natural healing processes. After two to three weeks, any swelling and bruising should subside and eventually go away.

What aftercare is provided?

We provide every patient with complimentary out-of-hours aftercare. Our patient promise is to be at the clinic within 60 minutes of your emergency if necessary.
