The ultimate lift
We provide surgical facelifts in our London, Nottingham & Leicester clinics. When all other alternative treatments cannot fulfil your desire for a youthful and lifted face, a facelift is an operation to tighten and lift the skin and soft tissues. This will result in a tighter and smoother look and a more youthful appearance. A facelift is usually performed under general anaesthetic and takes two to three hours. The surgical technique will depend on what area is being lifted.
SMAS facelift – Your surgeon will incise both sides of your face in the hairline around your ears. They will cut under the deeper layer of tough tissue (superficial musculoaponeurotic system or SMAS layer), lifting and tightening it. Your surgeon will then pull the skin towards your ears and remove any excess skin.
MACS facelift – The MACS (Minimal Access Cranial Suspension) facelift involves a smaller incision eliminating any scarring behind the ear. Your surgeon will tighten the SMAS layer with special suspension stitches to avoid cutting underneath it. MACS facelift involves minor surgery, but the results may not last as long as a SMAS facelift.
Mid-facelift – A mid facelift addresses the area below your lower eyelids over the cheekbone. Your surgeon will make minor cuts along your hairline and either inside your mouth or in your lower eyelid. They will use special surgical instruments and stitches to lift the cheeks.
For those not ready for surgery, non-surgical treatments such as BOTOX® or dermal fillers can help refresh the look but do not tackle excess skin.
