There is no better feeling than a rejuvenated young firm look. A facelift is an excellent way to turn back time and relieve the signs of ageing, such as a double chin.
A neck, chin or face lift involves the skilful hands of a specialist surgeon to remove excess facial skin from the neck, chin and cheek areas under general anaesthetic to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The procedure can also be known as rhytidectomy and can take between 2-4 hours with complex cases sometimes taking 6 hours. You will be required to stay in one of MYA’s fully equipped hospitals for 1 or 2 nights to rest and recover.
All MYA procedures require an in-depth pre op medical assessment. If you are over the age of 55 you will be required to have an ECG prior to your procedure.
Facelift scars will be hidden behind your ears in your hairline and will fade in time. After a facelift procedure you will find that your hairline has been “lifted” and if you are male the beard growth will be closer to and extend back below the ear. The muscle and its fibrous attachment are secured tightly in front and behind the ear as an extra sling under the chin. If you have a brow lift the scars will be in the hair line and not visible. A facelift tends to focus on the lower half of the face, jawline and neck. Sagging eyebrows and forehead wrinkles can be treated with a brow lift which can be carried out alongside a facelift procedure.
Many patients choose facial, neck or chin surgery because it can really wake up a tired face creating a natural bright happy expression, like any procedure a facelift is a big decision and MYA and our surgeons will provide you with all the information you need to make an informed choice.
