Facelifts for Men
A facelift at the Cadogan Clinic will improve heavy, tired features, rejuvenating your appearance and offering a natural-looking result
The visible signs of facial ageing, such as lines, wrinkles and loose skin, can now be reversed with the help of both non-surgical treatments or (for a more permanent outcome) a surgical facelift.
Facelift surgery is becoming increasingly popular with men who want to maintain their youthful looks, reducing and tightening skin that has lost elasticity over time. This procedure will also tighten the neck and jaw line, to further rejuvenate a tired, ageing appearance.
The treatment involves the skin being lifted slightly and tightened, and your expert surgeon will also manipulate or remove tissue underneath to achieve your desired results. Minimal scarring will occur, but will be discreet and will fade over time. Your surgery will take place under general anaesthetic and you are likely to require a one- or two-night stay in hospital.
On your departure, you will be allocated a follow-up appointment with your surgeon and the Aftercare clinic, to remove any stitches and dressings. As a facelift is one of the more intricate cosmetic surgery procedures, you will require at least two weeks off work and should avoid any strenuous activities for at least eight weeks. Swelling, bruising and tenderness are all common during the first few days after surgery, but these are completely normal and should subside within around ten days. Any discomfort can be eased with painkillers, which your doctor will be happy to prescribe.
Whatever your personal reasons, Facelift at the Cadogan Clinic will provide the leading surgeons in the UK who have access to the most advanced techniques and facilities for your treatment. Our expert team is acutely aware that your appearance can affect your confidence and everyday happiness, and as such we handle each case with sensitivity and discretion. You can rest assured your treatment, performed at our state-of-the-art, purpose-built, central London clinic, will deliver the results you desire.
Why Choose Us?
Variable prices can result from the fact that many of our consultants operate with different fee structures. In all cases, prices will be confirmed to you by your consultant before any treatment takes place.

We use a variant of the general anaesthesia technique called TIVA (Total Intravenous Anaesthesia) that is delivered by our team of top anaesthetists. Intravenous delivery enables our anaesthetist team to monitor anaesthetic depth more closely via specialized computers to maintain an optimal level of anaesthesia. This means you will wake up feeling much better than with traditional alternatives and ready to go home shortly after.
What to Expect
Step 1. Optional Free Consultation
We offer a free no-obligation 30-60 minute consultation with one of our specialist patient advisors to help you decide whether surgery is the right choice for you. The consultation will take the form of a discussion with an expert with over 15 years industry experience in which we begin to understand your objectives and the results you want to achieve.
If you decide to go ahead with treatment, our advisers can give you all the information you require to choose the right procedure and the right surgeon for you. This is also an excellent opportunity to see our facilities and get a feel for the Cadogan experience.
Step 2. Surgical Consultation
The next step is to come in and meet your chosen surgeon at the Clinic. We have assembled some of the best surgeons in the world who will use this time to make a comprehensive medical assessment of you and your condition before proceeding with treatment.
In practice this involves a 30-60 minute consultation in which a detailed assessment of the outcomes you can achieve is made and any questions you may have about the procedure are answered.
Step 3. The Procedure
On the day of your procedure you will be welcomed at the Clinic by your patient advisor and dedicated nursing staff. Following a brief medical check, you will meet with both your surgeon and anesthetist to run through the details of your procedure one final time and answer any last questions you may have.
After the procedure you will recover in the capable hands of your nursing after care team. As we are a day case facility you can expect your recovery to be complete within 2 to 3 hours and able to be discharged from the Clinic the very same day. In some cases patients may wish to stay locally in our exclusive partner hotel the day before or after your procedure.
Step 4. After Care & Support
Our care and support continues in the days and weeks after your procedure with our complimentary aftercare programme. A series of free appointments will be made with your surgeon and nursing team in order to monitor your progress and recovery, as well as introduce you to several scar minimization techniques and bespoke creams to aid your progress.
Access to our aftercare nursing team is free of charge for a full 12 months after your surgery.
