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.
Mr Rimouche is a very professional informative and caring doctor. He made me feel happy and extremely comfortable with my chosen treatment. He is very caring and went beyond my expectations of a consultant. After my surgery, I was exceptionally pleased with my results. Not only do I think the results and scars are excellent and very neat, so do other medical professionals. I am returning in a few weeks for another surgery with Mr Rimouche and very much looking forward to it.
