Face and Neck Lift

Face lift ~  rhytidectomy ~ in London, Essex and Kent

choosing the Belvedere for a Full Neck and Face Lift

A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a ‘rejuvenation’ procedure that some people consider when the skin has lost some elasticity. The best candidates for facelift surgery are those patients who demonstrate the signs of facial ageing but still have some skin elasticity. Generally this includes patients who are in their 40s to 70s, although older patients occasionally are candidates.

It’s extremely important that you are in good general overall physical and mental health, and it’s crucial that you have realistic expectations. A facelift is not meant to completely alter your appearance or make you look like someone else. It’s a way to turn back the hands of time and restore your once youthful appearance.  It is not a method to solve personal problems or psychological issues.

Time can be cruel to our skin and nowhere does it show as much as on the face. As our skin starts to sag on the face and neck we can begin to look more tired. The results of a face and neck lift can breathe new life into your appearance and give you an overall more youthful look.

You should not apply hair colour or perming solutions for 3 to 4 weeks and after a month, Vitamin E cream should be massaged into incision lines. Your surgeon will discuss this in detail with you, however if you have any queries feel free to call us on the number below.

Mini Face Lift Procedure

Why not try the mini face lift procedure?  This is best suited for people who have jowls forming, and maybe have a little loose skin around the chin and upper neck.  It is a less invasive procedure than a full facelift, and takes approximately 90 minutes with only a local anaesthetic being required.

You can return to normal activities within a week. The mini face lift gives a very natural and subtle change to the face, resulting in a more youthful and uplifted effect.
