Face & Neck
A facelift (rhytidectomy) and neck lift cannot stop the ageing process. What it can do is turn back the clock and restore former beauty. It can remove the most visible signs of ageing by trimming or repositioning excess fat, tightening the underlying muscles, and re-draping the skin of your face and neck. A facelift can be done alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as blepharoplasty, (eyelid tuck), and neck lift.
With ageing many changes occur in the face. These changes include not only the development of wrinkles, but also a thinning of tissues (skin, fat, muscle, bone) and drooping of structures. The combination of these changes affects not only your appearance, but also how people respond to you. A face that was previously young and happy can come to look old, gaunt, unhappy, grumpy, surly, angry, tired, closed, or any combination of these.
With facial Plastic Surgery the aim is to provide a healthy, youthful and refreshed appearance. A Face & Neck Lift and surgery to the eyelids (Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty) and nose (Rhinoplasty) are the most commonly requested procedures. Surgery to the brows (Brow Lift), lip corrective surgery and prominent ear correction (Otoplasty) are also available. Please visit the relevant webpages for further information.
