(also known as a Rhytidectomy)
As we age noticeable changes occur to our faces. We start to notice lines and wrinkles and our skin loses its collagen and elasticity. Our skin starts to loosen and begins to sag. The youthful glow that we once had starts to disappear and we lose volume and contour from our faces. All these changes become even more prominent the more we age. It's a sad fact of life that our present lifestyles tend to make us look older than we really are and sometimes feel!
At the Me Clinic our Surgeons have over 30 years of Cosmetic Surgery experience.
We perform the following Facelift procedures.
A Suture Lift is performed by our Surgeons who use fine threads under the skin which are attached to the underlying facial muscle tissue and are "tightened" to reposition loose or droopy skin on the face and neck. The threads or sutures are usually anchored within the hairline or behind the ears where they cannot be seen.More
The traditional Face Lift is a very effective method of lifting the skin and facial tissue can result in a beautiful and dramatic result.
A Traditional Face Lift is more suitable for patients with very loose or excessive skin, particularly as these patients are generally not good candidates for a Suture Lift.
Loose or saggy skin under the chin, neck and jowls, double chins (or even triple chins) and excess neck fat is very common as we age. It has the effect of distorting our features and does not present our best face for everyone to see.More
When considering a Face Lift, patients who want to achieve optimum results can combine one of our Face Lift procedures with other procedures and treatments to the face to obtain maximum benefit from their Face Lift.More
A popular and viable alternative is for patients to have their own fat (called autologous fat) transferred to their face so as to recontour the face, add volume and decrease facial lines and wrinkles.
It can also provide definition to the cheeks and chin and can also be used to correct facial deformities.
As we age some of us end up with sagging and loose skin on our necks. The dreaded turkey neck ages us beyond our years and detracts from our overall appearance. A slim taught neck is the framework that sets off our facial features.
A Neck Lift can tighten the skin, treat double chin and triple chins as well as a create a smoother overall appearance in the neck region.
