Face / Neck Lift

As we age, skin loses its elasticity, our facial muscles begin to slacken and youthful volume is lost. These changes can be addressed with a face and neck lift. With the surgeon’s skill and experience a natural look can be achieved with a quick recovery time. A lower face lift effectively removes excess skin in the cheek, jowl and neck area, leaving the jaw and neck lines smooth and firm. Deep wrinkles are greatly reduced and the whole face appears refreshed and rejuvenated. An upper face lift or brow lift corrects the forehead, and can be combined with eyelid or eye bag correction. The decision as to which type of facelift is performed will depend on your requirements, the current structure and anatomy of your face, and the effect that ageing has played on your facial appearance. Our surgeons can advise on the best treatment for your individual needs. The surgery will produce scars, but these will be hidden behind your ears and in your hairline and will fade over time. After a facelift procedure you will find that your hairline has been “lifted” and if you are male your beard growth will be slightly closer to below the ear. Recovery will take around 6 weeks but the majority of the swelling and bruising will reduce significantly in the first two weeks post-surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Click on the questions to reveal the answers.
Will the wrinkles return?
Yes. During your medical consultation your surgeon will point out that the skin will continue to age. It is important that you understand that the ageing process will not stop after a facelift.
Am I suitable for a face lift?
The best patient is someone with jowls, loose neck skin and a general saggy appearance of the skin on the face and neck. If the patient also has lots of wrinkles, non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments such as Anti Wrinkle Injections or dermal fillers can be combined with a facelift for an improved overall result.
Will I need to take time off work?
Yes, normally 7 -14 days is required off work, and the surgeon may advise you to take more time off. Surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and usually takes 2-3 hours. You will require an overnight stay in hospital. The surgeon can also combine this procedure with lipoplasty (fat removal) under the chin.
How will I feel following surgery?
All patients will feel sore for several days after the operation- pain killers and anti-inflammatory medication will be prescribed. The face will be swollen and bruised in the days following surgery, and the full results may be obscured by swelling for several weeks. This will be all be explained to you by your surgeon.
Could I have eye rejuvenation at the same time as a face lift?
Yes, the best results are achieved when these two procedures are combined, resulting in an overall improvement.
Will there be any scarring after a face lift or combined facial surgery?
In the case of eye rejuvenation, an incision is made close to the natural crease of the eyelid. During a face lift incisions are made in front of the ear, in the crease line behind the ear, and into the hairline. In both procedures post-operative scarring will fade over time and become virtually undetectable. Omnilux light therapy will assist with optimum healing and should seriously be considered both prior to and following treatment.
People who didn’t know me were guessing my age at about 30. I am absolutely delighted with the results!

I’d thought about having a face lift for about a year. After researching it on the internet I decided to go for it, and found Courthouse Clinics. I’m so happy I built up the courage. The staff were so supportive and made the experience pleasant.
