According to the European Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery , a facelift is the most comprehensive approach to treating facial wrinkles and sagging caused by aging. Known technically as rhytidectomy, facelift surgery removes excess skin, tightens underlying tissues and muscle, and redrapes skin over the face and neck. This can give the face a more youthful appearance.

There are a wide variety of facelift procedures, and each procedure is highly individualised for a patient’s specific needs. Facelift techniques range from simple, minimally invasive approaches completed through incisions in front of the ear, to the more extensive face and neck lift procedures. Most modern face lift techniques address not only the skin, but also tighten the underlying soft tissue called the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS).

When your face lift procedure is completed, a bandage may be placed around your face to minimise swelling and bruising. A thin tube may also be inserted to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect under the skin, which is removed the day after surgery. You should rest in bed for the first day or two after surgery. Your face will look pale, bruised, and swollen and your skin will be both tender and numb. All this is normal and will disappear in time.

Recovery from traditional face lift procedures may be lengthier than minimally invasive surgery. Yet, most patients return to work and ordinary activities within two to three weeks. You'll have some scars from the surgery, but they're usually hidden in the natural creases of your face and ears or by your hair and they will fade in time.

All surgery includes some risk and uncertainty. Serious complications or side effects of this surgery are rare, but they include:

  • Infection
  • Blood collection under the skin that must be surgically removed
  • Injury to the nerves that control facial muscles, although this is usually temporary
  • Changes in skin sensation
  • Temporary or permanent hair loss near the incision sites
