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.
