The Full Facelift


The Full Facelift



What can help?

As we age, the face changes in many different ways – which is why no single procedure alone can rejuvenate the entire face. The entire facial skeleton – including all bones of the face – is gradually reabsorbed as the years pass by, resulting in a loss of support for the soft tissues of the face. There is a loss of fat from below the skin, resulting in the loss of the youthful softness. The surface of the skin becomes rough, with disrupted pigments appearing which results in the loss of the youthful complexion. In order to address these issues comprehensively, we design a bespoke package of treatments normally delivered by a number of different specialists in our team, each of whom have their own niche specialisms in order to deliver the most effective and natural results.

Most of our surgical procedures are performed under local anaesthetic, which helps to reduce some of the risks associated with surgery. This means you are free to go home immediately after your treatment, although you will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult for the first 24 hours after your surgery. Most non-surgical procedures do not require any anaesthetic at all, although some may have a topical anaesthetic cream applied just before treatment to enhance comfort.

By employing a comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation, a more significant rejuvenation can be achieved. By tailoring the procedures to your specific issues we can really target the things that matter most to you and the team approach of our doctors helps to ensure that the person doing each part of your treatment plan is a specialist in each area. 


The Full Facelift

The surgical part of the full facelift will normally require a two to three weeks initial recovery period, depending on the extent of your surgery. The non-surgical aspects, which are normally performed after you’ve healed from surgery, typically do not have any downtime other than some mild swelling and bruising that can usually be camouflaged. 


When you are planning a full facelift, it is best to see it as an evolution – a process whereby you will see incremental results as you heal from each component. Although you will see some immediate improvements after surgery, these will generally improve for up to six months as the remaining subtle swelling continues to resolve and the impact of the non-surgical procedures take place. When you have reached your desired results, we recommend you continue on a light maintenance plan to maintain the effects. This may involve a couple of visits per year for some BBL skin treatments and light injectables to stop the wrinkles from recurring.
