A popular treatment for thousands of people around the UK, a face lift or rhytidectomy is a cosmetic procedure that lifts up and pulls back the facial skin in order to make it tighter and smoother.
A facelift is an operation to tighten and lift the loose skin of your face below the eyes. Anything above the eyes is a browlift.
The procedure will take around 1 – 2 hours, you will either be treated as a Daycase or you may need to spend the night, Dr Sof will discuss this with you at your consultation
- To protect your body, and get the best result, look after yourself.
- Avoid vigorous activities after your operation.
- Protect your wounds as you are told to.
- Putting on weight or being pregnant will affect the results.
- Maintain a healthy weight and level of exercise.
At first your face and neck skin may seem too tight. This usually settles down within six weeks of the operation. Most patients are pleased with the final result, but some find their new shape difficult to get used to. This may happen to you. You cannot judge the final result of your facelift or necklift for about six to nine months. Even if the operation is a success, you may need another operation in the future to have the skin tightened again.
Face lift. I have to say thanks for the care, professionalism and exemplary work with my recent surgery. I had no down time at all, and was out and about the next day. 7 days later, the dressing nurse remarked on how well the stitches had healed leaving me very pleased with the outcome. I always feel confident in his care and would thoroughly recommend him. Thank you.
