Turning back the clock with the help of a Vertical Restore facelift
What is a vertical restore facelift?
- The upper segment of the face: the temple and outer brow area that can droop and cause hooding around the eyes
- The midface segment: where you might have heavy nasolabial folds and deflated or sunken cheeks
- The lower segment of the face: where you might have skin sagging that leads to droopy or jowling in the jawline
- The neck: laxity in the neck that can make the neck look heavy and blur out your face contour
How is a vertical restore facelift different from a traditional facelift?
The vertical restore facelift represents a subtler, more refined alternative to the traditional facelift. Rather than relying on skin tension to achieve lifting, the vertical restore facelift utilises a vertical approach to move the neck, jawline, and cheeks as one cohesive block. The result?

What are the benefits of vertical restoration?
- Powerful minimisation of heavy jowls, marionette lines, sunken cheeks, and significant skin excess in the face
- Fixes sagging around the mouth by pulling the corners of the mouth slightly upward
- Gives your cheeks a heart shape that makes them look perkier and highlights the cheekbones without needing cheek implants
- Tightens the neck and improves the neck and face contour
- Avoids the clumping of facial skin near the ears and neck that’s caused by pulling the facial tissue sideways during a regular facelift
- Addresses the entire face and doesn’t require additional procedures such as fat transfers, a cheek lift, or a neck lift
- Gives you more natural-looking results – no ‘pulled face’ or ‘tight face’ appearance
- Gives you more harmonious and balanced facial features – every part of the face is restored
- Gives you more durable results that could last 10-15 years
How is a vertical restore facelift performed?
- Dr Turner will carefully make small incisions at the top of your hairline which extend downward, around your ears, and backwards to again reach your hairline. He makes the incisions in a way that ensures they’re well hidden after your facelift even when your hair is pulled back.
- He will then gently separate the skin from the underlying facial tissue, without stretching or stressing the skin, in your temple, cheek, jaw, and neck. The skin is laid back on top of the underlying tissue without causing any tension.
- After that, Dr Turner will separate all the important ligaments that hold the fascia down to the bone from the cheek area, to the jaw area, and down to the neck area as well. This will allow him to vertically lift and reposition your entire face without opposition, and restore the facia that has been elongated downward with time.
- The facial tissue is repositioned at around a 60-degree angle – the cheeks are elevated, nasolabial folds are lifted, the jawline is smoothed, and the neck is tightened.
- Your skin will then be laid back over your face and any excess skin will be removed.
- Finally, Dr Turner will use delicate suturing techniques to close your incision with minimal damage to your skin. This will help restore the natural appearance of your skin and help your wounds heal faster after your vertical restore facelift, along with your premium post-op care, from Dr Turner, our nurses and our dermal therapists.
