- Loss of elasticity, and muscle tone in the face
- Jowls and deep creasing in the nose and mouth areas
- Severe neck and face wrinkles
- A tired haggard look
- Less definition in the jaw and chin area
A face-lift works to tighten the skin from the eyes down and including the neck area. Surgeons will look at the five area above and depending on how sever they are they will customise a plan for the individual patient. There are a range of face-lifts available which include;
- A standard facelift-A complete facelift is often suggested if a patient has all five aspects of ageing with noticeable sagging skin and jowl area.
- A mini-facelift- If there is mild muscle tome loss with a general tired appearance a mini-facelift may be suggested. The procedure tightens and lifts the skin and works to address minor signs of ageing. Usually there is no work done to the neck area and is more suited to younger patients with less signs of ageing.
- Short Scar facelift- This is a variance on the mini-facelift often referred to as an ‘Extended MACS’. This procedure can be suggested for mild to moderate skin elasticity issues and signs of a jowl. It only treats the face, lifting the face up rather than back. It is less invasive and leaves fewer scars with a faster healing time.
A treatment plan is started during the consultation procedure where a surgeon can decide with the patient the best solution for their face.
