Facelift Brisbane & Gold Coast
Face lifts have become an increasingly popular trend amongst both men and women. The incredible effects of a natural looking, younger shape and tone can be achieved within the facial area with this surgical procedure. At Ashbury Cosmetics located in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast, we offer two forms of facelifts:
1. Boutique s-lift
The latest in cosmetic procedures for the treatment of sagging facial features comes in the form of the ‘boutique s-lift’.
This advanced surgical procedure is based on principle of re-contouring the underlying layers of fat, muscle and tissue to achieve a longer lasting and more natural outcome. This is ultimately a more successful method that avoids many of the unwanted side effects associated with traditional procedures including:
- No scar is left behind the ear and hair line, with a minimal interruption to the ear lobe.
- The results appear completely natural.
- There is a shorter operation and recovery time required.
- Less skin is damaged.
- Ideal for younger patients.
2. The standard face lift
This procedure involves the doctor creating an incision from behind the ear, along the ear lobe and to the back of the neck, this skin is then separated from the underlying muscle and the excess fat is removed. From this point the muscle and tissue that have been subjected to sagging are then tightened and the excess skin is removed to leave a noticeably more youthful and vibrant appearance. Our standard face lift is typically conducted over a 3 hour period in which local anaesthetic is administered with sedation or alternatively, general anaesthetic is used.
Immediate precautions must be taken to avoid sleeping in a flat position, with arrangements made to elevate the head off the bed to a sufficient level of comfort. Strenuous activity should also be avoided, along with overheating and sun-bathing for 2 or 3 weeks. Patients are also instructed to refrain from driving for up to 3 weeks and where pets may be present in the patient’s household, measures should be taken to avoid close contact, where potential contamination or infection might occur.
