A guide to Face Lift Surgery

, A guide to Face Lift Surgery

A Face Lift is the best way to treat facial wrinkles and sagging caused by ageing.

Face Lift removes excess skin, tightens underlying tissues and muscle and re-positions the skin on the face. It can correct mid-face sagging, jowls and a double chin. Every year, thousands of people undergo successful Face Lift Surgery and are pleased with the results.

When is the best time to consider a Face Lift?

  • If you feel that your face does not reflect your youthful spirit and energy level
  • If you determine that your facial sagging and excess skin is a social or career obstacle
  • If you show signs of facial ageing but still have some skin elasticity
  • One day you look in the mirror and realise that time, gravity, sun exposure and heredity have taken a toll and you simply do not look like yourself any more.

Many people who consider a Face Lift also consider a brow lift and eyelid surgery.

Pros of having Face Lift Surgery

  • A Face Lift can improve many areas of the face in one surgery
  • Can last for ten years or more and can make you appear ten to fifteen years younger
  • Can re-contour the neck and jawline better than all other techniques

Cons of having Face Lift Surgery

  • A Face Lift will not create a ‘new’ you, just a younger version of yourself, having realistic expectations of results is a big part of surgery
  • There will be some downtime associated with this procedure, you need to allow enough time to recover
  • Depending on your age and skin type, you may want a secondary procedure later on.

These are the top three pros and cons to consider when considering Face Lift Surgery.

Am I a good candidate for Face Lift?

The following are some common facial characteristics that make you an appropriate candidate for a Face Lift:

  • Sagging skin in your mid-face and/or jawline
  • Deep creases extending from your nose to the corners of your mouth
  • Lines extending from each corner of your mouth down your chin
  • Facial fat that has fallen or is displaced
  • Sagging and loss of muscle tone in the lower face, resulting in jowls
  • A double chin, resulting from loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw
  • Creased and sagging skin in your neck

If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.
