In our Gold Coast Clinics
A facelift smooths loose skin on your face and neck, tightens underlying tissues and removes excess fat. Your bone structure, heredity and skin texture all play a role in how many ‘years’ a facelift can ‘remove’ and, to some extent, influence how long it will last.
There are many variations to the facelift procedure and placement of incisions. The goal of every facelift technique is to keep the incisions hidden as much as possible. Following surgery, scars will be concealed by your hair or with makeup.
Your facial skin is lifted from its underlying tissue and the excess is trimmed off. The deeper tissues are also repositioned to restore a more youthful contour to your face.

The Facelift Procedure
A facelift tightens the loose skin on your face and neck areas and the underlying tissues and removes excess fat. This procedure can rejuvenate the appearance and take “years off”.
Achieving harmony of your facial features is one of the most important goals of aesthetic plastic surgery.
Facial aesthetic surgery can help you shape your nose, reduce prominent ears, increase the projection of your chin and create a more pleasing contour in your cheek areas. Sometimes enhancing a single facial feature brings your whole face in balance, enhancing your overall appearance and increasing your self-confidence. Looking your best can give you an important ‘edge’ in both your personal and professional life.
When facial sagging in the cheek area is pronounced, a procedure called a mid-facelift may be performed. Incisions are often made inside the lower eyelid or may be placed in another area that provides superior access to the central cheek region.
If necessary, a small incision beneath your chin permits the removal of fat and smoothing of the cord-like structures in your neck.
After facelift surgery, you will experience temporary skin discolouration and some tightness or numbness in your face and neck. Since your skin will remain somewhat sensitive for a few months, protection from the sun including daily use of a sun block is essential. You can wear cosmetics a few days following surgery and patients often are back to work within two weeks.
Choosing A Qualified Surgeon
One of the most important factors in the success of your plastic surgery is the surgeon you select. Many people are surprised to learn that some doctors performing plastic/cosmetic surgery today have had no formal surgical training. That is why you need to ask the right questions before you schedule a consultation.
