Face Lifts : Male and Female

The purpose of a facelift is to restore a more youthful look by raising and tightening the skin and relocating the facial muscles by removing redundant deposits of fat. The standard facelift is effective in the lower two thirds of the face and does not include the forehead or eyelid regions. The improvement gained through a facelift is permanent.

However, sooner or later the signs of ageing will return and sometimes the operation can be repeated to gain further benefit.

Results: Patients who are good candidates for a facelift are likely to gain a very gratifying result. They can look years younger and this can be a great boost for their confidence, both in social situations and at work. The improvement in appearance can be dramatic and is usually even more so when combined with Blepharoplasty (removal of eyebags) and dermabrasion to the upper lip.
