What does this procedure involve?
A facelift is carried out under general anaesthetic and typically takes around four hours to complete.
A typical procedure involves elevating and repositioning the skin and soft tissue of the face. During the procedure, cuts are made in front of the ear, extending up and forward along the hairline. Redundant skin is then removed, and the remaining skin is hitched and re-draped over its new foundations and sewn into position. Fat and tissue is redistributed and sometimes added to the face.

Going home after surgery
After your surgery there is usually some bruising of the cheeks and with gravity this tends to descend into the neck. Discomfort is usually mild and can be controlled with paracetamol. It is normal for there to be some numbness of the skin of the cheeks and ears. This will usually disappear in a few weeks or months.
Normally, you will stay in hospital for one or two nights after surgery, or longer if required. When you return home you will need to take it easy and get as much rest as possible, to help with the healing process.
It’s important to remember that whilst a facelift will make you look and feel younger, it doesn’t stop the ageing clock, it just sets it back. The effect of the procedure is likely to always be there, in that you will not look as old as you would have done if it had not been carried out.
You will be required to wear a compression garment after surgery to ensure the best results and to minimise bruising and alleviate swelling. This should be worn 24/7 for the first two weeks after surgery (can be removed for washing purposes). After the second week it is recommended that you continue to wear the garment while at home for an additional 2-4 weeks. You may take it off when you go out and Mr Wilson will advise you of when you can stop wearing this completely at your post-operative follow up appointment.
How much does this surgery cost?
Depending on the type of procedure you require, the cost of surgery can vary.
These are guide prices and are subject to change following an initial consultation with Mr Wilson, where a bespoke quote will be provided, specific to each patient.
The prices include one Covid swab at the hospital of your procedure. This Covid swab will need to be performed 72 hours prior to your admission and the hospital will book this with you directly upon receipt of your surgery booking. You will be required to completely self-isolate between the time of the Covid swab to the time of your admission to the hospital.
