The visible signs of ageing such as lines and wrinkles, loose skin and brown spots, no longer have to be an inevitable part of getting old, and many people choose to reverse these signs with the help of face lift surgery and other surgical and non-surgical procedures. Face lift surgery, also known as rhytidectomy, is one of the most commonly requested procedures by both men and women who want to look as young as they feel. It is performed to remove or reduce the skin that has lost its natural elasticity – usually around the eyes, mouth and jaw line – smooth the skin, reduce lines and wrinkles and rejuvenate a tired-looking appearance.
BENEFITS OF HAVING FACE LIFT SURGERY
- Increased self-confidence and self-esteem
- Looking younger
- Feeling rejuvenated and fresher
- Ability to wear clothes with lower necklines – no longer the need to hide behind a scarf / high-necked top
- Easier application of make-up
THE PROCEDURE FOR FACE LIFT SURGERY
There are three main types of face lift surgery; traditional, minimal access cranial suspension (MACS) and keyhole surgery. Your surgeon will advise you on which method is most suitable and which will produce the best results – details of each procedure can be found below. For many people, combining a face lift with neck lift surgery ensures that the overall appearance is rejuvenated and patients who undergo this combination of procedures have reported looking 10 years younger.
