What Is the Procedure for a Facelift and How Long Does it Take?

The facelift procedure varies as it depends on the nature of the work that is being done – it can take only a couple of hours, but it can also take six or more for more complex procedures.

There are various techniques for facelifts, any one of which can be undertaken, depending on your surgeon’s own preferences and your own particular circumstances.

In general, incisions are made in the skin, usually around the temple and behind the ears; this allows the surgeon to access the structures of the face, neck and forehead and leaving minimal hidden scarring.

The surgeon works by tightening and repositioning the ligaments and muscles beneath the skin, removing loose skin and tissue, pulling everything taut and reaffixing it.

The procedure may also involve facial liposuction, a neck lift and dermal fillers to provide additional volume

What Does the Recovery Entail?

  • After a facelift, you will be swollen and bruised and your face will feel tight.
  • It may take some weeks before you start to feel yourself again, although this may only be days if you have had a mini-lift.
  • Your surgeon will let you know when you are able to wash your hair and perform other routine tasks.
  • Bending should be avoided and lying on your back in an elevated position will more likely be the most comfortable option for sleeping.
  • You should take things slowly and avoid strenuous activities for at least six weeks.
