Face Lift

Why is face lift surgery done?

Face lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure done to repair visible damage done by ageing to the skin, fat or muscles on the face. The surgery helps to restore a younger appearance and can be done along with other facial cosmetic procedures such as nose reshaping, eyelid surgery or forehead lift.

How is face lift surgery done?

  • Incisions are made above the hairline at the temples, behind the earlobe to the lower scalp after which the skin is separated from the muscle and fat below. 
  • Fat is trimmed or suctioned from around the neck to improve the contour.
  • The underlying muscle and membrane is then tightened, the skin pulled back and excess skin removed. 
  • Incisions are closed, metal clips being used for the purpose on the scalp
  • The head may be bandaged to minimize bruising and swelling.
