If you are bothered by signs of aging in your face, facelift surgery may be right for you.
- Have you noticed sagging cheeks or jowls?
- Deep creases along the nose, or around your mouth?
- Do you have loose skin under your chin and jaw making you look like you have a double chin?
We offer both surgical and non surgical alternatives at our clinic.
Facelifts, necklifts and browlifts are surgical procedures to improve the visible signs of aging in the face and neck.
We perform these procedures primarily in our Day Surgery. The surgery takes around 2 hours and is done under General Anaesthetic. You will need someone to pick you up and take you home and stay with you for the first night. You will go home with drains in, and you will need to come and see us in the rooms for drain removal and suture and staple removal. This is not a particularly painful procedure, but you can expect some bruising and swelling. You will probably want to have 2 or 3 weeks off work.
If you are not wanting to commit to surgery, you may be interested in our non-surgical enhancements, including anti-wrinkle injections and fillers which can be used in many ways to enhance, restore and reshape areas of your face.
Are heavy lids concealing one of your best assets?
As we age, our eyelids can become loose and the excess skin can sit heavily on our lashes, causing our eyes not to open as wide as they used to. Some people say that they are often asked if they are tired, or angry, when neither is the case! One solution to this issue, is Blepharoplasty. A complicated word meaning Eyelid Reduction.
Blepharoplasty is a common Plastic Surgical procedure that we primarily do under Local anaesthetic. (You are awake, but numb in the area).
It takes around 45 mins and you will need someone to drive you home afterwards. We will need to see you for suture removal in one week. You will probably want to have a week off work. It is not a painful procedure, but regular use of ice packs is extremely beneficial.
In many cases, this surgery is considered a medical procedure, and not a cosmetic one, so Medicare and your health fund make a contribution to the cost.
