Face lift : facial rejuvenation surgery


What is a face lift surgery?

Face-lift surgery, also known as rhytidectomy, restores the youthfulness of facial traits by lifting sagging facial tissues and excess skin all over the face. One prime cause of skin loosening and the formation of wrinkles is aging. For this, facelifts offer anti-aging treatments through the reshaping of the neck, eyelids, temples, forehead, and smile lines. The procedure guarantees instant beauty-enhancing and natural-looking results.

Who are suitable candidates for face lift surgery?

A prime criterion of good candidacy for face-lift surgery is good overall health. Indeed, the patient has to be free of any pre-existing medical condition that may present a contraindication to the surgery. In the case of weak bone structure, other non-surgical face-lifting procedures like botox or fat grafting may be considered to fill skin creases. Finally, the patient has to set realistic expectations and be aware that a face-lifting does not alter facial morphology, but rather rejuvenates its appearance, and restores facial and neck structures.

Types of face lifts:

Well-known types of face-lifts include the mini, mid, and full facelifts, each of which is chosen according to the patient’s age, need, and the desired outcome:

  • The mini facelift: is less invasive and dramatic than the full facelift. A mini facelift is generally recommended for younger patients who wish to achieve a lifted look without undergoing the full facelift. It concentrates on the removal of excess skin around the face, jaw, and neck areas.
  • The mid-facelift: focuses on the lower part of the face; extending from the lower eyelid area to the jawline. The mid-facelift helps to correct deep nasolabial folds, under-eye bags, and sagging cheeks.
  • The full facelift: combines the aforementioned techniques.


How is Rhytidectomy or face lift surgery performed?

Before facial lift surgery:

A pre-surgical consultation with both the surgeon and the anaesthetist is important to set the objectives of the face lifting procedure, determine the patient’s psychological readiness, and review his/her medical history. To check the criteria of good candidacy, the surgeon will conduct a complete medical check-up and a facial examination to evaluate the patient’s cutaneous and bone characteristics. Finally, it is important that the patient inform their surgeon of any ongoing treatments and medication they are taking.

During the facial lift surgery:

The duration of face-lift surgery depends on a number of variables:

  • The type of face-lift (mini or full)
  • The incision performed (short or full)
  • The patient’s desired outcome


Face-lift surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under general anaesthesia.

To begin with, the surgeon will create a cut that differs in length depending on the type of face-lift performed. If the patient suffers from significant skin sagging, a full incision around the earlobe and back into the hairline will be created. Alternatively, mini face-lifts involve a smaller cut (known as short incision) located around the ear. Regardless of the type of incision, post-surgical scarring is invisible and well concealed.

Once the cut is made, the surgeon may proceed to separate the skin from the underlying facial tissue. Sagging skin is thereafter eliminated and fat pockets removed by way of liposuction. Facial tissues are repositioned and redistributed, and any remaining skin is tightened to achieve a firmer and more lifted look. Finally, the surgeon concludes the procedure by suturing the cuts with stitches.

Results of face-lift surgery:

Although face-lift results are noticeable immediately after surgery, it can take up to six months (until the scars completely fade away) in order to enjoy final and permanent results. The outcome of face-lift surgery is generally long-lasting, however, it is important to hydrate and protect the skin to prolong rejuvenating effects.
