Facelifts are among the most requested cosmetic procedures and can dramatically improve the appearance of the face, jawline and neck area. A facelift is a major surgical procedure because it targets the skin, fat and muscles, but if you’re looking to restore a youthful overall appearance it delivers outstanding results. Facelifts can be performed on both men and women, and a range of different techniques are used depending on the particular problem area and look you want to achieve.

What to Expect During the Consultation
Dr Paul Nassif will perform a health check and ask you about any medical conditions that you or any close family members may have. This is an essential part of any major surgery, and your overall well-being is always our first priority. Once the surgeon has determined your suitability for the procedure he will discuss the different options available to you. He will assess the condition of your skin and gain a full understanding of the overall look you want to achieve. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions so you can be totally prepared for the day of surgery.
What to Expect on the Day of Your Surgery
A facelift is a major procedure that is usually performed under general anaesthetic, so you will be asleep during the operation. You will need to be in good health on the day of the surgery and it is advisable not to drink alcohol for the preceding 24 hours.
The facelift techniques used vary according to the individual patient, but it is usual for facial muscles to be tightened and any excess fat and tissue to be removed. Small incisions will be made in the skin, usually in inconspicuous areas such as behind the ears or around the hairline so any scarring is unnoticeable. Drainage tubes may also be inserted. You will need to stay with us until the surgeon allows you to be discharged, and we advise to bring a close friend or family member with you on the day.
What to expect from facelift surgery
In a neck lift, excess fat is removed through a small incision under the chin, and the superficial neck muscle is tightened through a hidden incision behind the ear. In this lift, the incision is extended behind the ear to the ear lobe around in front of the ear and then behind the hairline of the temporal region. From this section of the facial skin is mobilized. The underlying tissue is tightened and then relaxed and the excess skin is removed. After closing the skin, your face will look much younger.
For strongly sunken cheeks and nasolabial folds, a strong lifting of the mid-face may be necessary. This lift will be cut above the gum or placed under the eyelid and is based on a new technique developed in Beverly Hills for mid-face lifting. In many cases, a superficial facelift for the patient is sufficient.
The positioning of the cuts is optimised so that the scars remain as invisible as possible, which is especially important for men in particular as they usually have a shorter hair cut and lighter hair growth. With my technique, we will be running the cut “in front of the ear” and partly hidden behind the ear cartilage (tragus).
If the wrinkles on your neck are not so pronounced, you can apply a gentle mini facelift. In this procedure, the incision is just in front of the ear and from here, cheeks are raised again to remove excess skin. The swelling after such a mini facelift is significantly less than after a full extensive facelift.
The procedure involves the transferring of fat from other areas of your body via a procedure called tumescent liposuction. This procedure is painless so you won’t be able to feel what’s happening. Because only the most pure fat cells are used, the results are natural and immediate.
What to expect after your facelift surgery
You should expect significant swelling and bruising for a few days after the surgery, so it will be a while before you can really see the full extent of the results. When you come around from the operation your face will be bandaged, which can be quite a strange feeling at first. We recommend full bed rest and no lifting after the procedure – this will be discussed in full with your surgeon during the consultation.
How much does a Facelift cost?
Everyone is different, so it is impossible to give a standard price for this procedure. Dr Khan will take into account a number of considerations before providing you with a detailed quote, including age, health, medical issues, skin elasticity and the desired results you are looking to achieve.
