Extended Face & Neck Lift In Glasgow



Neck and Facelift Glasgow

We offer extended neck and facelifts in Glasgow at our clinic, the Aesthetic Medicine Institute.

A rhytidectomy, more popularly known as a facelift, is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin from the lower face, neck area, and jawline. This type of facial surgery targets loose skin and leaves skin looking tighter and smoother.
This is our most comprehensive treatment for lifting the neck and face.

We offer several other types of facelifts that are designed to tighten sagging skin for a rejuvenated appearance. These include a Mini Facelift (also known as a Short Scar Facelift) and a Thread Lift (also known as a One Stich Facelift).

We also offer non-surgical lifting treatment options for lifting the face and neck. These include the Volumetric Facelift that uses dermal fillers and the Vampire Facelift that uses Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy.

Who Is A Facelift For?

Ageing can appear to join forces with gravity, resulting in jowls under the chin and sagging skin and wrinkles affecting the facial features. A surgical facelift procedure is ideal for patients who are concerned about the more advanced signs of ageing in the lower face and neck.

Neck & Facelift Procedure



Neck and Facelift GlasgowAnaesthetic

Facelift surgery can be performed under sedation, local anaesthetic, or — like most types of facial surgery — general anaesthetic. The type of anaesthetic we use depends on the patient and their requirements.

Before Surgery

At the start of the rhytidectomy, some fluid is injected into the face to reduce the amount of bleeding and bruising afterwards.

During Surgery

The surgeon then makes incisions below the temple in the sideburn area (in front of the ears), curving around the back of the ear and sometimes into the hair-bearing scalp in this area. Whether these are big or small incisions depends on how much skin needs to be removed.

When the skin has been separated, the surgeon works on the muscle layer under the skin: this is where the real lifting effect is achieved. The muscle layer and soft tissues are lifted, trimmed, and sewn back in a position that will give a more youthful appearance.

When this has been done, any excess skin is removed and the skin is gently stitched back together, giving it a tightening effect.


Where are the scars?
The incision for facelift surgery is done with progressive and natural results in mind.

The scars are hidden in the natural crease in front of and within the ear, as well as behind this area into the hairline. This means that the scars are not always visible immediately, and over time they should be virtually undetectable.

Facelift FAQs

What Is Recovery Like After The Procedure?

Since this is a full face and neck lift that involves facial surgery it is likely there will be some bruising and swelling afterwards. As a general rule, most people feel comfortable getting back to work and certain normal activities in around a week to 10 days.

If you have had a lot of liposuction carried out as part of the neck lift procedure, the recovery process will normally take longer than average, which means the downtime will be longer too.

How Long Do The Results Last?

One of the reasons facelift surgery is so popular is because they boast impressive results when performed by an experienced surgeon such as the surgeons at our Glasgow clinic.

There are many claims on the internet about how long a face and neck lift should last. The most recent research, however, has shown that a good facelift should last, on average, around 5 years.

What Other Procedures Can This Procedure Be Combined With?

A full facelift is often combined with eyelid surgery to lift and open the eyes, but it all depends on the needs of each patient. Some may want wrinkles pulled straight and skin tightened, while others may want their facelift combined with a chin augmentation treatment.

We also offer a wide range of non-surgical jowl lift treatments if you’re just wanting a neck lift in Glasgow.

What Are The Potential Risks & Complications?

Like any operation, there is a risk of side effects and complications with a facelift as well.

There is a possibility of a collection of blood-forming under the surface of the skin, which could necessitate further treatment to remove it. There is also a small risk of wounds becoming infected, especially in patients who smoke.

Occasionally there can be wound healing problems that mean the scars don’t heal as neatly as you would expect. Again, this is much more common in patients who smoke. In rare situations, there can be damage to the facial nerve, which controls the movement of the face.

Our experienced surgeon will sit down with you to ensure realistic expectations for your facelift at our clinic.


We offer a non-surgical facelift that is a combination of procedures that restore volume, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and tighten loose or sagging skin around the face and neck area.

Another option is a volumetric facelift. This involves facial fillers being injected into the facial tissue and on top of the bone.

A third option is Profound RF. This procedure stimulates a healing response that generates new collagen formation. This further stimulates the production of elastin and hyaluronic acid – two vital components of youthful skin.
