1. What does it involve? Redistribution and/or reduction of facial fat, repositioning and tightening of facial muscles and tissue. Re-draping and reduction of excess sagging skin of the face, jowls and neck to produce a more youthful appearance.
2. How much time is taken? Approximately 3-6 hours
3. Does it need Anaesthesia ? General or local with intravenous sedation
4. How much is recovery time? Return to work in 10 days to two weeks. Swelling, bruising and stiffness may persist for three to four weeks
5. What are risks involved? Nerve damage, hematoma (collection of blood under the skin), asymmetry, irregular scar formation, altered hairline and complications related to anaesthesia, in some rare cases
6. How long the results last? Feather Lift: Minimally invasive lift with special suspension sutures. Results are pleasing and recovery is faster. Short Scar (S Lift): This is especially suited for younger people requiring only mid-face lift. Neck Lift: Often done in conjunction with facelift to contour the sagging neck and removal of fat.
7. What else I need to know? Facelift is not a mere skin operation. It is a scientifically worked out operation. It is a scientifically worked out operation to restore the vectors of skin, underlying muscles and their attachments to the bone.

FaceLift (Rhytidectomy)

Face lifts are designed to reduce the slackness in the tissues of the face; a face lifttightens or excises muscle, fat and skin, producing a more youthful, rested appearance. Generally speaking, face lift procedures only address the two-thirds of the face, although a surgery can combine both face lift and eyelid surgery or browlift.


For individuals interested in reducing sagging in the facial area, face lifts may be the best way to address the problem. For many patients, the key issues corrected by face lift surgery include sagging jowls, loose neck skin, and fat accumulation under the chin (double chin). Face lifts work in essentially the same manner, although there are some variations in face lift techniques, depending upon the specific individual facial constructions, and the intended outcome of the face lift surgery.


Individuals investigating the ways in which a face lift could help them should meet with a plastic surgeon who specializes in face lifts. During the consultation, the surgeon and patient will determine reasonable expectations for face lift results, depending upon the facial bone structure, and specific problems to be addressed by the face lift procedure. Many surgeons will use photographs of the individual from an earlier period to guide face lift surgery and create a more youthful-looking face. A good plastic surgeon can help decide if face lift surgery is a good choice for the prospective patient, and will explain all of the face lift benefits and risks.
