Face Lift

A facelift can reduce visible signs of aging and help you achieve a sleeker, more youthful appearance.

Facelifts are some of the most effective ways to reduce the signs of aging and to improve your facial appearance. If you want to remove the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and daily stress, and look great at any age, a facelift may be the answer.

Why have a face lift?

As people age, deep creases can form between the nose and mouth, the jawline grows slack and jowly, and folds and fatty deposits appear around the face. While a facelift, or rhytidectomy, can’t stop the aging process, it can work to reverse the most visible signs by removing excess fat, tightening muscles, and re-draping the skin of your face.

To ensure the results you want, our plastic surgeons will assess your skin quality, hairline, hairstyle, and bone structure to determine the approach that is best for you. A facelift can be done alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping.

Face lift results

The volume and elevation of the cheeks will be improved. The middle and lower part of your face will have a smoother, more youthful, and natural contour. A facelift can improve the deep cheek folds, jowls, and loose, sagging skin around the neck that come with age. After surgery, patients present a fresher, more youthful face to the world.

Final results are usually evident in six to eight weeks with continued improvement for up to six months. After that, the aging process continues. Your lifestyle choices, bone structure, skin type, sun exposure, and genetics all play a role in determining the extent and longevity of your results.

What to expect during a face lift

There are several different types of facelift surgeries, each with their own unique benefits and risks. The type of facial rejuvenation surgery that is best for you depends on your objectives, the specific features of your face and skin. Our facial plastic surgeons use a wide variety of techniques to achieve your facial rejuvenation objectives.

Recovery After a Face Lift

Patients will experience swelling and bruising during the first seven to fourteen days. However, the discomfort is minimal and easily controlled with medication. Bandages will be removed at the surgical centre in a day or two after surgery. Sutures are removed, often in stages to minimize scarring, within seven days. Patients are able to return to work and social activities within 2-3 weeks.
