At The Lotus Clinic, our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Chandra Patel, offers advanced facelift techniques designed to diminish the signs of aging with beautiful, natural-looking results. Wrinkles and loose facial skin can add years to one’s facial appearance. In some cases, they even make people look older than they actually are, which can lead to self-consciousness about the way others perceive them. Dr. Patel will utilise a multiple treatment approach to tighten your facial skin and smooth out wrinkles, resulting in a rejuvenated, more youthful look. Through surgical precision and personalised care, Dr. Patel can help you achieve your facial rejuvenation goals and attain the look you desire.

Benefits of a Facelift
Facial aging can be the result of multiple factors, including:
- The natural process of aging
- Sun exposure
- A history of smoking
A facelift from Dr. Patel can help you achieve the rejuvenated look you desire without giving away the fact that you have had plastic surgery. The elimination of excess skin, in combination with gentle tightening of underlying facial muscles, can help to produce a more refreshed look and avoid a “pulled” sensation. The procedure can smooth out even the most prominent facial wrinkles and reduce signs of sagging, inelastic skin with results that are often very long-lasting. Ultimately, a facelift procedure can help you look as young as you feel.
The Facelift Procedure
During your facelift procedure, Dr. Patel will make small incisions along your hairline and behind your ears in an an effort to conceal any residual scarring. He will then tighten your skin and underlying facial muscles to eliminate wrinkles and sagginess. Excess, inelastic skin will be removed. Dr. Patel takes great care to ensure the end result is smooth and natural-looking. Additionally, a neck lift or non-surgical facial treatments can be combined with a facelift for an even more comprehensive cosmetic makeover.
As an outpatient or inpatient procedure, the facelift surgery is performed under general anesthesia and most patients are able to return home the day of their operation. Treatment times will vary depending upon the extent of your goals, but most facelift procedures generally take about one to two hours to complete.
Recovery from a Facelift
Facelift recovery times will vary relative to each patient’s needs. You can generally expect to experience some swelling and bruising in the days following your surgery, but any discomfort can be alleviated with medication. Most patients are able to return to their daily routines in about one week. Additionally, any strenuous activity should be avoided for at least two to three weeks. Dr. Patel also recommends that you return for periodic visits to monitor your healing progress.
