Face Lift

Clinically known as Rhytidectomy, Face lift surgery is a procedure used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and other signs of ageing.

The goal of the surgery is to improve the overall appearance of the face and jaw.

Following people can opt for Face Lift:

  • People experiencing a loss of skin elasticity of face and neck.

  • Jowl appearance and deep creases on the face.

  • People having facial and neck wrinkles.

  • People who believe that they lack youthful chin and neck contours.

  • People having tired facial appearances.

Expected Outcome

The facelift surgery at Luxor Hospital will give you the following outcome:

  • More youthful and rested contour to the face and neck.

Procedure

  • The procedure can be done on an outpatient basis under the influence of local anaesthesia with sedation or under general anaesthesia.

  • The procedure depending on the location and extent of skin laxity ranges in the size from 'mini' to 'standard' face-lift.

  • Incisions are made within the hairline above ears which extends around the lobe.

  • This incision ends in or below the hairline behind the ear.

  • After an incision is made, the subcutaneous layers and neck muscles are tightened and the facial skin is re-draped and lifted.

Post Operation Care

  • Patients can go home with their dressing on head and neck.

  • The dressing is removed the next day.

  • Oral medication is prescribed for initial discomfort.

  • All the stitches are removed within the 10 to 12 days of surgery.

  • The swelling is reduced within 10 to 20 days.

  • You can see the final results within the 4 to 6 months of surgery with continued improvements in the further months.
