About the procedure

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that aims to counteract the ageing process by lifting and tightening facial tissue.

What are the benefits of a facelift?

As we age, the skin becomes thinner and muscle mass and collagen loss occurs, resulting in unwanted sagging of the jawlines, jowls and deep lines. Sun exposure, repetitive facial expressions (such as frowning) and smoking can exacerbate the appearance of ageing. A facelift is a long-lasting course of action to counteract this ageing process by removing excess skin to smooth these wrinkles and ‘lift’ the face.

A facelift could be the perfect solution if you have:

✓ Sagging skin from the cheek area to the jaw

✓ Loose neck skin, also known as ‘turkey neck’

✓ Jowls, where your jawline starts to sag

✓ Loss of volume in your cheek tissue and around your mouth

✓ Wrinkles around the nose and mouth

Who is a good candidate for a facelift?

Typically, people over the age of 40 are excellent facelift candidates. You are likely to get the optimal result if you have good overall health and realistic expectations of what can be achieved. A facelift can remove years from your face, but it’s important to note it won’t change your overall facial structure.

A facelift, or rhytidectomy or rhytidoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery that lifts sections of the face and neck making it tighter and smoother to remove unwanted signs of ageing (loose skin, lines, wrinkles, sagging skin). Facelifts are performed under general anaesthetic and take between two to four hours. There are several types of facelifts you can opt for and the most suitable will depend on your facial structure and your desired outcome. View our other FAQ for the different types of facelifts available.

Mental crease, a line under your lower lip on your chin

For the procedure, you will be administered with a general anaesthetic. The type of facelift you will have depends on your current face shape, problem areas and desired outcome. Our medical team will discuss the most suitable options with you to ensure you obtain the look you want. 

Our highly skilled surgeons, along with their professional and friendly team, will provide you with a detailed recovery and aftercare plan. You will be monitored closely and treated with the utmost care. They will clearly explain how to manage your dressings, drains and swelling. Rest assured that we will facilitate your entire procedure and recovery process.


ü  Anticipate a recovery period of approximately three weeks. There will be bruising, swelling, and some discomfort.

ü  Compression bandages and drain/s will be required for one to two weeks.

ü  Expect to return to work after two weeks if your job is not physically demanding.

ü  You most likely will feel comfortable to publicly socialize after three weeks when swelling and redness has eased.

ü  For the best results, avoid strenuous activity for two months.

ü  Residual swelling may last up to three months.

ü  Generally, you will feel physically comfortable after three months.

ü  You will see the best results around six-nine months later.

You will experience some temporary discomfort after your procedure, usually around the incision area. This can be managed with pain-relief medication.

As with any surgery, there are risks involved. Some possible risks include nerve damage, delayed wound healing and hair loss near the incisions. We will explain the risks and complications to you in more detail so you can ensure you are fully informed prior to undergoing the procedure.

This depends on the type of facelift technique you are opting for. A mini facelift can last between 2 to 6 years, while a deep-plane facelift can last 10 years or more.

After your facelift surgery, you should:

  • Sleep on your back for at least 2 weeks
  • Avoid regular exercise for 4 to 6 weeks, gentle exercise (walking) is fine after 1 to 2 weeks
  • Avoid the sun for around 2 weeks
  • Restrict sexual activity for 4 weeks
  • You can resume driving after 10 days
