What Is Face Lift?
A Facelift surgery is technically called a Rhytidectomy, which translates to “surgical removal of wrinkles”, and that is exactly the purpose of the facelift. A facelift is a surgical solution with the main objective of lifting sagging facial skin, reducing wrinkles, and restoring a more youthful facial appearance.
Under the expertise of a skilled facelift surgeon, the loose fat and drooping skin is excised, to give you a younger, fresher, “tighter” appearance. It is a procedure that requires a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon, with an artistic flair, and working with a trained support team to give good results.
Why Face Lift?
As you get older, the appearance and shape of your face is altered because of normal age-related changes. Your skin becomes less elastic and looser, and fat deposits decrease in some areas of your face and increase in others. Age-related changes in your face that may be reduced with a face-lift include the following:
- Sagging muscles in lower jaw, resulting in jowls
- Double chin with loose skin and excess fat
- Drooping skin around cheeks, nose, lower face, jawline, and neck
- Nasolabial folds – deep creases running from your nose to your mouth corners
- Marionette lines – fold lines running from your mouth corners to your chin
- Loss or loosening of facial fat
Steps Of A Face Lift Procedure
Decide structure according to your needs
A facelift procedure takes approximately two to three hours, and is performed under “twilight” anesthesia.
The procedure involves making an incision behind the hairline, Once the incisions are in place, the skin is lifted and liposculpturing techniques are used to remove excess fatty deposits.
Recovery is quick and typically pain-free. Most patients are back on their feet within five days of wearing a bandage.

Frequently Asked Questions
With age, the skin and tissue structure around the face, chin, and neck changes, losing elasticity and volume, and causing the appearance of droopy skin, facial folds, and wrinkles. This happens equally among women and men.
For people who want to eliminate such issues, and restore youthfulness to their face, a facelift is the best solution to achieve a more youthful look, and “turn back the clock” of time.
It is a safe and highly popular procedure, has a short recovery time, and can provide you the best results.
There are several other methods for correcting facial wrinkles. Perhaps the most popular next to facelift is botox and nonprescription anti-wrinkle creams. The only difference between the two is that botox is instant while anti-wrinkle creams need time. Botox uses Botulinum Toxin that stops the facial muscles from contracting and hence, preventing it from wrinkling. On the other hand, creams may not be effective each people have different reactions to chemicals.
The results of a Facelift last for approximately ten years. However, having the procedure may help to turn back the visible effects of time but it does not stop the natural ageing process. To ensure that the results look good for as long as possible, you should lead a healthy lifestyle and enjoy a healthy diet, avoid smoking, follow a good skincare routine and avoid excessive exposure to the sun.
Facelifts may take longer recovery time but the results are long-lasting. The recovery period may last for a week or two. Minimal bruising and swelling are natural and evident for a few weeks after surgery.
Like any other surgeries, facelifts though rare can include the following risks:
Risks in administered anesthesia
It is important to be aware of the risks and be educated on how to prevent them. Consultation with your plastic surgeon is crucial. If a patient experiences symptoms or irritations weeks after surgery, medical attention should be prioritized.
For an accurate cost assessment, you will need to book an initial consultation with our surgeon. As with almost any aesthetic procedure, the cost will depend on the following factors:
Surgeon’s Expertise – The surgeon’s fee is based on their experience. Obviously, a reputable surgeon who is established and has a successful track record will charge higher fees.
Clinic/ Hospital – Fees also depend upon the quality of the facility chosen for the operation.
Geographic Area – Depending on the city/ area you decide to have the surgery in, the cost is likely be different: clinics in larger metropolitan cities tend to cost more. You should bear in mind that the expertise of your consultant and your comfort factor with him or her should be one the most important considerations, much more so than the cost of the procedure. A cheap procedure could turn out to be an expensive proposition in the long run.
