Providing customised facelifts to achieve natural beauty and life lasting results

The best way to determine the final costs for facelift surgery is in consultation with one of our highly regarded plastic surgeons. The costs are influenced by various factors such as combining a facelift with a neck lift.

Main causes of loose/sagging skin

There are many factors that can contribute to the sagginess and loose skin on the face and neck.

  • Aging is the most common cause of loose skin. As we age, our body generates less collagen and natural elastin, which keeps your skintight. Unfortunately, aging is unpreventable, however can be managed with the appropriate protocols. (our treatments offered inserted here?)
  • Sun Exposure causes DNA mutations in the skin that can lead to premature aging. UV radiation damages skin from the epidermis layer down deep into the dermis. Collagen and elastin fibres are damaged as a result, leaving behind skin that cannot recover naturally.
  •  Smoking nicotine and other chemicals found in cigarettes contribute to wrinkles and premature aging. These chemicals cause blood vessels to narrow, reducing oxygen flow and nutrients to skin cells. Without such nutrients skin cells can die, effecting the production of collagen and elastin in the body.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the procedure?

A face lift is performed under local or general anaesthesia. You will need to be fasted at least six hours before surgery.

After you are fully sedated we will start the incision around the hairline and temples, finishing off towards the lower scalp. Fat may be carved or removed from the face and neck. Facial muscles are tightened and lifted. The procedure is performed over a period of 4-6 hours. The skin is then re draped over the face and closed with sutures that may need to be removed after a few days.

What to expect after a facelift?

Patients will need to be at home for a minimum of 1 week after a facelift. Avoid heavy lifting, exercise until advised. We strongly advise that you have a support person monitoring you for the first 24 – 48 hours after the procedure.

You will need to wear a bandage covering the treated area for 24 hours.

Pain medication will be prescribed as you may experience some aching and/or discomfort, usually around the incision areas. In some cases, a small tube may be placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid build-up.

Residual bruising and swelling will be apparent after surgery and will subside over the two-week recovery period.

You will be booked for a follow up appointment five days after surgery to make sure that you are healing well. Stitches are invisible and dissolvable.

Here at Contour Clinics we offer complimentary post-operative LED therapy to aid in healing to decrease your downtime immediately after surgery.

How long will a Facelift last?

A Facelift is permanent. The sutures holding up the skin will never loosen. However, the natural aging process will still occur even after a facelift. Over time, layers in the skin will lose collagen and elastin naturally and eventually the skin will begin to sag.

The rate of collagen and elastin breakdown depends on a range of lifestyle factors. Smoking, alcohol and substance abuse, excess weight gain will cause the tissues to break down at a faster rate.

It is crucial that you to continue to look after your skin post facelift surgery. This will ensure longevity of your facelift. Clinically proven skincare recommended and made up of antioxidants, retinoids, anti-aging properties, hydrating moisturiser and SPF will maintain the skin elasticity and increase collagen levels, increasing the life of your facelift.

Are there any risks or complications?

Facelifts performed by Dr Jeremy Hunt are a safe and secure way of treating facial and neck sagging. Like any surgical procedure, risks are present.

Dr Hunt and his staff will take you through a thorough discussion about the potential risks, in your initial consultation to ensure you are comfortable and reassured.
