Are you unhappy about sagging jowls and a ‘turkey neck’ you constantly try to hide behind a scarf? Has your skin become loose and your face lined with creases? It may be time to consider a surgical face lift. Surgical face lift (rhytidectomy) is perhaps the most dramatic treatment we provide – face lift surgery truly can make you look ‘ten years younger’.
Your path to a more youthful appearance starts with a free consultation with our Consultant Facial Surgeon. Surgical face lift is one of many options we offer and can successfully be combined with other surgical procedures such as eye bag removal or non-surgical treatments such as chemical peels or laser skin rejuvenation. Many people choose to combine surgical face lift with liposuction under the chin to improve a ‘turkey neck’ appearance – this is carried out through a tiny incision made under the chin. You can be sure that when you come to me you will be offered only the treatment that is right for you.
If you decide that a surgical face lift is the right choice, you will need to plan for a two to three day stay at a private hospital in Bristol. Full surgical face lift is carried out under general anaesthesia and typically takes about three to four hours. face lift incisions are made in the hairline and behind the ear, where they can be well hidden. A surgical face lift tightens the underlying tissues and delicately repositions the skin to give your face smoother and younger contours.
Recovery from surgical face lift is straightforward in the vast majority of cases, although you can expect to spend a two to three weeks away from your normal routine. Complete healing of any face lift scars normally takes several months.
