What's involved in getting a facelift?

A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is an operation to lift up the facial skin and underlying muscles, so that your face has a tighter and smoother appearance. It can provide you with a more youthful appearance. 

There are several different techniques used by Spire Cosmetic Surgery to perform a facelift. In a full facelift your surgeon will make a surgical incision right around your hairline, past the front of your ear and sometimes under your chin then carefully remove excess skin and fat and tightening the muscles. Facelifts are sometimes also performed only on the brow area, lower face, or neck.

A facelift is performed under a general anaesthetic and you will usually need to stay in hospital for one or two nights.
