A facelift is a surgical procedure to rejuvenate the face. A facelift procedure consists of lifting and pulling the skin to remove any folds and smooth fine lines and winkles, achieving a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Facelifts or neck lifts are particularly effective on patients who have sagging around the lower or upper half of the face, jowls and neck.

Nonetheless facelifts are procedures that require a substantial amount of downtime post procedure; this is why more patients are now seeking less invasive or non-surgical options to rejuvenate their appearance.

What are the different types of facelifts?

The Private Clinic offers a variety of options when it comes to facelift procedures that provide a speedy recovery and natural results.

One Stitch Facelift: Is an innovative surgical procedure performed under local anaesthetic which offers a much speedier recovery time compared to a standard surgical facelift. The one stitch facelift focuses on mid-face rejuvenation and in particular the jaw line. The benefits to this procedure include lower risk of bruising and swelling and the scar is completely unnoticeable as it’s hidden under the hairline.

The Temporal Facelift: is a similar procedure to the One Stitch Facelift, but the main difference is that this procedure focuses on the upper-face; from eyebrows to the midface. The temporal facelift is performed under local anaesthetic and the scar is also hidden within your hairline. The results are more lifted and rejuvenated appearance with minimal downtime.

Mini Facelift: For patients whose main concern is the jowls or the neck the mini facelift is a great option to achieve a more contoured and defined jawline as well as tighter and smoother neck. This procedure is ideal for patients who suffer with moderate skin laxity.
