Facelift surgery

We Care About How You Look and How You Feel

Facelift surgery can smooth the skin on your lower face and tighten underlying tissues and muscles.

What is Facelift Surgery?

In a facelift procedure the skin on the face is lifted from its necessary tissue, and any excess skin is taken off.

Your heredity, bone structure and skin texture all determine the result of a facelift. It is common for a facelift patient to also require a necklift to meet patients expectations and cosmetic outcomes.

The more rooted tissues are also moved to help achieve a more youthful appearance. If required, a tiny incision under your chin can assist with the removal of fat and smooth out the cord-like structures in your neck.

How it works

1. REFERRAL

We require a GP referral for all surgical procedures. Please book in with your GP to discuss and obtain a referral.

2.CONSULTATION

After referral, you will have two consultations with our team prior to booking in your procedure. The first consultation will be with the surgeon who will be performing your procedure and will be in-person – this is a great time to discuss the specifics of your situation, the outcomes you are hoping to achieve, your personal health and lifestyle concerns and attributes, along with all possible treatment options, the recovery process and any risks involved. Your second consultation may be with your surgeon again, or could be with another of our team who is qualified to consult on your treatment. At least one consultation must be in-person at one of our practices.

After your two consultation appointments, you can provide signed consent for the decided upon treatment and your procedure will be booked in. There is a 7 day cooling off period from the day of your signed consent.

If you are under the age of 18 years, please contact us directly to discuss your consultation process as it will differ to the process for adult patients.

3. FACELIFT SURGERY PROCEDURE

Facelift surgery is usually performed under a general anaesthetic. The length of the operation will depend on the type and extent of the surgery but could take anywhere from two to four hours. There are a number of ways to approach the surgery and your surgeon will discuss these in order for you to make an informed decision based on your goals.

4. POST
PROCEDURE
CARE

A one to two night hospital stay is recommended after your operation.
Bruising and swelling will be expected.
Exercise will not be encouraged until swelling has settled, usually around the 4-6 week mark. A headband garment is required to be worn for the first 2 weeks.

RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS

Potential risks associated with the procedure comprise bleeding and infection (<5%).

Should significant bleeding occur, it may require a return to the operating room for necessary repair.
