About Facelift Surgery
The smile lines get deeper, the jowls become more prominent, more wrinkles appear, and the skin gets looser.
These changes are also accelerated by sun exposure. Facelift surgery can assist in restoring a more youthful and natural appearance.
Also called “rhytidectomy” a facelift smoothes loose skin and wrinkles on the face and neck, tightens underlying tissues which have become lax and sagging with age, and gets rid of excess fatty tissue.
It removes cheek folds and jowls – the deep lines or folds that run from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth – and redefines the jawline. As a result, your face will appear firmer and more youthful. Facelift surgery performed by Mr Mutimer AM is an inpatient procedure and is performed under General Anaesthetic.
Complementary procedures may include neck lift, facial implants, and fat injections.
Am I A Good Candidate For Facelift Surgery in Australia?
Our facelift surgeons in Melbourne strongly believe that patient education is a key component of your entire plastic surgery experience.
We will assess patients on a case-by-case basis to determine their suitability for their specific procedure, including facelift.
Questions we may need answered include:
Facelift surgery clients first meet Mr Mutimer for a 30 min consultation where you will discuss the procedure in detail, technique to be used and recovery time. Photos will be taken.
Following this you will meet with our Patient Advisor who will take you through facelift costs and discuss potential dates for your surgery.
2 weeks prior to your surgery you will meet Mr Mutimer again for a final consultation.
You will also meet with the Patient Advisor and Practice Nurse to finalise all administration, and discuss pre and post-operative care instructions. Payment for your surgery is also finalised.
