About Face Lift

(Rhytidectomy)

A facelift could help you if you are bothered by those signs of ageing in your face. A facelift is a procedure designed to remove those signs and give you back your youthful appearance. Dr Lim is very experienced in performing the facelift procedure and is known for his pleasing, natural results. Facelifts are individually customised to each patient depending on their individual requirements. The way the surgery is performed also varies depending on the required outcome. Dr Lim will go over all of the available options during your facelift consultation.

A facelift can improve otherwise permanent signs of aging such as:

  • Sagging jowls
  • Fat that has fallen lower on the face
  • Loose skin and fat deposits under the chin and neck
  • Deep creases caused by excess skin around the mouth

Face Lift Surgery

Face Lift Procedure

For the majority of facelifts performed, incisions begin within the hairline, just above the temple and continue along, ending behind the ear. This allows Dr Lim access to tighten underlying tissue, removing excess fat and skin. A second incision under the chin is sometimes necessary. If skin tone is good and only mid-face aging needs to be corrected, shorter incisions may be used.

After your surgery you will notice some swelling and bruising which should subside in 2-3 weeks. Final results may be noticeable in 1-2 months. Incision lines or scars will continue to refine for the next year.
