A facelift or ‘rhytidectomy’ is very effective in reversing the signs of ageing. Surgery has moved on considerably from the taught, ‘stretched’ look, and most modern facelifts now carefully manipulate the deeper facial tissues and re-drape the skin to produce a fresher, natural, more youthful appearance.
The classical facelift targets the lower part of the face and the neck, visibly improving the appearance of a slack, loose jaw line, reducing the deposits or folds of fat around the neckline and successfully minimising deep creases between the nose and mouth.

Suitability for surgery depends on a number of factors that must be assessed by your surgeon. Anyone considering facelift surgery should be:
- Medically fit
- Psychologically stable
- Have clear goals and realistic expectations
- Be prepared for some ‘downtime’
Facelift surgery is a personalised procedure and the technique used is greatly dependent upon the quality, texture and elasticity of the skin, the degree of sun exposure, the appearance of jowling in the neckline, and the amount of fat present in the face. Your consultant cosmetic plastic surgeon will carry out a thorough consultation and examination to determine the best option for you. Before surgery your health will be assessed including heart and lung function, blood pressure, tendency to bleed, allergies and medication. Facelift surgery is not advisable for smokers due to risk of bleeding and poor quality healing. Patients over 50 need to have both a blood and Electrocardiography (ECG) test before having this procedure.
