“My Face Lift has changed the way I feel about my appearance dramatically. Post-surgery has been so much better than I had expected and I was able to go back to my normal routine in no time.
“Thank you so much Elite Clinic for rejuvenating my face – I am thrilled with what you have managed to achieve.”
Face lift surgery, also known as rhytidectomy, is one of the most commonly requested procedures by both men and women. It is performed to remove or reduce the skin that has lost its natural elasticity over time and usually happens in the areas around the eyes, mouth and jaw line.
The individual’s identity is often primarily determined by the face—its structure, overall appearance, and expressions. However, as facial aging begins, there is a tend to lose deep volume. The art of natural facial rejuvenation is a balanced reversal of this volume loss using our own tissue and relocation of the attenuated skin and muscles back to their original locations. Subtle refinements, emphasizing natural and harmonious results will restore our self-confidence while retaining the essential character of the face.
The Traditional Facelift includes firming the skin by using multiple incisions that range from the forehead to behind the ears. The procedure involves tightening both the covering skin and the underlying muscle, called the platysma, as well as removing surplus skin from around the ears. We commonly combine this lifting with the volumizing treatments such as fat grafting to the chin, jawline, lips, cheeks, and temples. This surgery is reserved for older patients and can create dramatic results.
The sagging of the cheeks becomes emphasized as the skin ages in time resulting in an old and tired look. A midface lift is also known as a cheek lift. This lift provides volume and corrects a sagging cheek. In recent years, the approach to correct this common cosmetic issue has become less invasive with the trend of endoscopy. With this technique, there are practically no scars and there is minimal recovery time. This surgery is often combined with a blepharoplasty eyelid surgery.
This Mini face lift treats sagging skin through a smaller incision, usually behind the ear and just up along the hairline. It is used for moderate sagging. The operation is performed around the mid-face and jawline and involves the removal of excessive skin that has sagged during the natural ageing process.
This technique involves several very small incisions are made into the skin on your face. The surgeon then feeds in an endoscope beneath the skin, allowing him to observe exactly which muscles need tightening and how much excess fat needs to be removed, if any.
The Mini Face Lift is recommended to people who have deep nasolabial folds or sagging facial structures, yet still have a firm and well-contoured neck. It is commonly used for brow lifts and upper face lifts.
Although an innovative new technique, it has grown in rapid popularity and has replaced full facelifts.
We can deliver comparable results to traditional facelift procedures via these combination treatments but achieve them by far less invasive means that require far less recovery time.
However, be reminded that this type of procedure may not be suitable for everyone. Our expert surgeon will be able to advise if the method is suitable for you during your consultation.
The procedure usually takes between 60 and 90 minutes and is performed using local anesthesia and sedation. General anesthesia is usually not required for this procedure.
With the mini-facelift, incisions are much shorter compared to traditional facelift, resulting in smaller scars. Rather than lifting the skin, the mini facelift focuses more on restoration of the muscles into their original position. This is very important as it is the main factor to achieve natural-looking results.
Fat Tissue Restoration and Regenerative Cell Treatments can be used in combination to restore elasticity, resulting in a younger appearance without changing the patients’ natural expression.
There are more procedures that can be combined with mini face lift so as to fully achieve the youthful appearance. For example, if the patients show indications of ageing on the neck, the specialist will recommend you to also add a neck-lift to the initial mini-lift to cure all signs of facial skin sagging. The Face and Neck Lift is considered a lighter version of traditional full facelift, which will produce the same aesthetic results. The operation is performed around the mid and lower face, including the neck. Fat tissue is used to reverse age-related facial bone loss. Operational scars are mostly unnoticeable as they are hidden on anatomical creases in front and behind the ears and within the hairline.
This innovative combination of a mini facelift, neck lift and minimal fat grafting succeeds in sharpening the facial bone arches and making the face look more structured and V-shaped.
In some other cases, eyelid surgery might be needed, which can be addressed by simple skin-only eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to reduce the downtime and avoid the need for general anesthesia.
Another type of facelift is Micro Lift usually combined with a Fat Transfer procedure to achieve a more lifted effect. Natural ageing process can become visible at this age as the structural bones and the tissues experience volume loss, which causes skin to drape over the skeleton.
Over 90% of micro-lift and mini lift surgeries are combined with fat transfer. However, if patient already has a full face, then we can avoid the fat transfer.
With the fat grafting procedure, we can fill the facial arches, and add back some of the lost volume to lift up the mid lower face a bit. The naso-labial lines (marionette lines) can also be filled with your own fat, up to a certain degree.
In Harley Elite Group, we acknowledge that each individual has different metabolism and different lifestyle which may accelerate or defer the loss of fat. That is why we recommend unique treatments to each individual as well as provide tailor-made services according to the patient’s needs each time.
Micro lift is reversible in case of little discomfort, in any case the inner sutures would have bonded the tissues well enough after a 4-6 weeks to maintain the lifting effect. The procedure also helps the neck to be pulled slightly back as lower face is tightened.
Micro face lift is a closed face lift. This means that the inner tissues are being pulled and tightened from inside.
The operation is under sedation, lasts 90 -120 minutes and the downtime is usually less that 1 week. Note that the surgery will not leave any permanent scars, but there may be little swelling and bruising. The effects will last for 3-5 years. Fat injections will be for lower and mid face, chin. Very rare, headache is the most common concern, but it last less that weeks.
We would suggest to have a consultation with your GP if you are on regular blood thinning medication. Please also note that teas, ginseng, and all supplements except for Vitamins, omega 3, aspirin, ibuprofen, as will aggravate bleeding during surgery. You are also advised to not have of existing fillers before any surgery or fat transfer.
The mini facelift procedure’s goal is to create a completely natural improve face and restore the tissues that have been displaced or broken down over time. Therefore, you should see elegant and gentle improving in facial expression.
The results of the mini facelift are permanent and can be expected to reduce the appearance of age by about ten years. However, the ageing process gravity will continue as usual after the surgery. Our goad is to delay gravity prosses.
The recovery period is relatively small and post-operative pain is rare. Any discomfort is treated with simple painkillers. It is normal for there to be small bruising, but this will be minor and disappear after a few days.
In the first two days you should expect to have a light dressing covering your ears and head. You should come back to the clinic to remove the dressing usually after 48 hours, after which you can shower, wash your hair carefully . The stitches will be removed after 10 days. It is typically possible to start wearing makeup again after 2 weeks of when the procedure took place.
Most patients can go back to work and their social life within one to two weeks after the swelling and bruising have subsided. You will be personally advised as to when you can return to exercise or strenuous activities.
The Mini-Facelift is an ideal treatment for people wanting to reverse the signs of ageing and achieve a more youthful appearance without undergoing a full facelift procedure. A mini – lift can be done with minimal inconvenience, scars, and risk.
Skin ages over time and the earliest signs of ageing appear where the skin is most delicate- the face and neck. Fine lines, excess skin, deep wrinkles and volume loss begin to develop as we get older.
This process is further escalated by lifestyle and external factors such as sun exposure, stress, smoking, nutrition, and sleep.
Common concerns include:
- Drooping eyebrows
- Bags around the upper and lower eyelids
- Drooping/sagging skin
- Reduction in fat around the cheeks and wrinkles
