Why we recommend a comprehensive approach

While 55-60 year-old’s used to be the typical age for facelift clientele, we’re now finding that many clients in this age group have thinner SMAS (superficial Musculo-aponeurotic system) and more skin damage, which can make the results of a facelift less effective and long-lasting. This is why we recommend a combination of surgical and non-surgical procedures for comprehensive rejuvenation. By pairing surgical procedures with a skin rejuvenation package, we can help you achieve the best possible results that can last for years to come.

Recovery after facial surgery.

Your recovery time after facial surgery will greatly depend on the type and extent of your face contouring procedure, as well as your desired aesthetic outcomes. However, in general, the recovery process typically involves some swelling, bruising, and discomfort for the first few days after surgery. It’s important to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions closely to ensure proper healing and minimise the risk of complications. This may include things like taking pain medication as prescribed, avoiding strenuous activity or exercise for a certain period of time, and keeping your head elevated when sleeping or resting. In some cases, your surgeon may recommend a period of rest and downtime before returning to work or other daily activities. It’s important to give yourself adequate time to heal and recover before resuming normal activities. It’s also critical to maintain good overall health during the recovery process by eating a healthy diet, staying hydrated, and getting plenty of rest. Following all post-operative care instructions and attending all follow-up appointments with your surgeon can help ensure the best possible results from your facial surgery.

What are the risks of facial surgery?

While all surgeries come with some degree of risk, modern facial surgery techniques are generally very safe when performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon. Choosing the right surgeon can greatly reduce the risk of complications and ensure the best possible outcome.

Potential risks may include:

  • Bleeding
  • Nerve damage or changes to facial sensation
  • Unwanted scarring
  • Swelling
  • Delayed wound healing with unhealthy behaviours
