Facelift surgery as carried out at the Cadogan Clinic is relatively risk free, we do not carry out the deep plane surgery, which is associated with medium term pain and swelling.
Bleeding haematoma, or bleeding under the skin is a risk and we therefore ask patients to avoid any drugs that might increase this tendency. This would include the usual anti-coagulants, aspirin, anti-inflammatories and certain herbal remedies.
We keep scars to a minimum and scars of the face are better than elsewhere in the body. Patients who tend to get hypertrophic or keloid scars need to be very carefully advised and treated with our Cadogan scar treatments post-operatively. Your surgeon will discuss these risks with you very carefully.
As we age, the skin on our face starts to lose its elasticity and begins to sag. Creases can become deeper and the jaw and neckline start to droop. Fat on the face, which makes it look plump and smooths out wrinkles, is absorbed as the years go by, so the face appears more gaunt. The rate at which this ageing process occurs varies from person to person and can be a source of frustration for those who want to look as young as they feel.Go to Treatment
