Traditional Face Lift

The traditional Face Lift is a very effective method of lifting the skin and facial tissue, that can result in a beautiful and dramatic change to the face. It is more suitable for patients with very loose or excessive skin, particularly as these patients are generally not good candidates for a Suture Lift. It is usually the best answer for Face Lift patients with significant laxity of facial and neck skin.

How does a Face Lift Work?

A Face Lift involves the surgical incision in front of and behind the ears and hairline to remove excess loose and excess skin which achies a lifting and tightening of the facial features. It is a surgical procedure that may leave some visible scars around the ears and hairline with generally a longer recovery period than other Face Lift Procedures such as a Suture Lift.

Our Surgeons have over 35 years of Cosmetic Surgery experience with Face Lifts and have performed thousands of Face Lift procedures.

What should you expect after Facelift surgery?

After your procedure you may feel drowsy from the anaesthetic. It is important to have someone drive you home and stay overnight. On this evening we recommend you rest. You are provided with an after hours direct number in the event you may have any questions or concerns you wish to speak to us about.

Following surgery there may be some pain behind the ears but this is easily dealt with by pain medication and usually settles down within 24 to 48 hours. The next day or within a few days of your procedure you must come back to the Me Clinic for your first post-operative check.

The recovery period for a Face Lift is generally between 2 to 4 weeks. Our Surgeons and Nurses will continue to monitor your recovery through a number of post-operative check-ups and are available at any time if you have questions or concerns.

If you have any questions or concerns please call the Clinic to speak with your Surgeon, Nurses or one of our staff members.


This 46 year old patient felt her face looked much older than she actually was. She was particularly concerned her upper and lower eyelids, jowls, neck and sagging skin.


We performed a full Face Lift, Neck Lift and an Upper & Lower Blepharoplasty. The transformation was amazing. She looked at least 15 years younger! (Note: images were taken a short time after surgery and during her recovery.)

How much does it cost?

As every patient we see has different requirements, it is difficult to provide standardised pricing as each procedure is tailored for each individual patient’s situation. A no obligation consultation with one of our Surgeons is essential in determining what you require and which procedure would be best suited for you.

Our philosophy is simple. We want you to be fully informed, and we want you to understand all your options and have one accurate price quoted once. Consultation fees may apply.

There is no need for you to obtain a referral from your own doctor to see one of our Surgeons. Generally, we are able to book you in to see one of our Surgeons in 7 to 14 days.
