A face lift is a restorative type of surgery that improves visible signs of aging such as:
- Sagging of the lower face due to relaxation of facial ligaments
- Sagging appearance of the cheeks and midface.
- Deepening of fold lines around the mouth/nose area
- Loose skin on neck which gives the appearance of a double chin or “turkey neck”
During a face-lift, a flap of skin on each side of the face is pulled back, and tissues below the skin are surgically altered to return the contour of the face to a more youthful shape. Before the flap is sutured closed, excess skin is removed.
Other procedures such as blepharolasty, platysmaplasty (neck lift), or brow lift may be performed at the time aslo for optimal results.
A face-lift can give your face and neck a more rejuvanted and youthful appearance. Face-lift results are not permanent. With age, the facial skin may begin to droop again. In general, a face-lift can be expected to last 7-10 years. A face lift will not address photodamage or change the fundamental appearance of your face.
Before any surgery is performed, a consultation with Mr Kambiz Golchin is required. This consultation will likely be a discussion including a full medical history and exam if necessary. A medication review and facial assessment will also be done on the day. Mr Golchin will answer any questions you may have during the consultation and will explain the procedure in greater details and what to expect before and after the procedure.
