Facelift surgery reconstructs muscles and tissues, tightens skin and changes the appearance of the face

About Facelift Surgery

The first signs of ageing typically appear on the face.

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 addressing these changes.

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 look different. Facelift surgery performed by Mr Mutimer AM is an inpatient procedure and is performed under General Anaesthetic.

Other procedures that patients can have in conjunction with a rhytidectomy 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:

Any kind of cosmetic procedure is still a major surgery. We must ensure you are in good physical health and that any pre-existing health concerns or conditions are accounted for.

Certain skin conditions or habits (such as sun damage and smoking) can impact the condition of the skin. As a result, this may have an effect on the outcome of your procedure.

While facelift surgery (along with almost any other kind of surgery) is not measured by age alone, we do find that typically most patients who undergo facelift surgery are aged 40+.

Your Consultation
Initial consultation:

Facelift surgery patients first meet Mr Mutimer where you will discuss the procedure in detail, technique to be used and recovery time. Photos will be taken. You will receive information about the surgery itself, the surgeon who will perform the surgery and costs.

Second consultation:

Once you have had time to review all the information from the first consultation and you want to progress with your surgical journey you will meet Mr Mutimer again for a further consultation.

You will also meet with the Patient Advisor and Practice Nurse to discuss surgical documentation and pre and post-operative care instructions.

7 days after this consultation your surgery dates can be booked and payments made.

Facelift Cost
  • Initial Consultation: $350

  • Procedure : $40,000 – $45,000 (Facelift cost includes surgeons fee, hospital fees, anaesthetist fees and up to 6 weeks of after-care appointments with practice nurse)

Please note that facelift costs provided are indicative only – intended to give patients a realistic estimate of associated costs. Actual facelift cost may vary depending on individual patient circumstances.

Prospective patients often wish to see photos of people who have previously had this surgery. We don’t share these images on the website as we respect our patients privacy, however they are available during a consultation.

Cosmetic Surgery is real surgery and requires a general anaesthetic, both carry risks. All surgery has a post operative recovery time and this will be discussed in detail at your consultation, your type of work or personal responsibilities / support available and your health history as well as the surgery itself will dictate how long the recovery will be. All surgery carries risks, complications are not common but they can occur and these will be discussed at your consultations.
