Offered in Sydney, a Facelift is a Plastic Surgery procedure that tightens underlying tissue and smooths and tightens skin on the face and neck. Also known as a Meloplasty or Rhytidectomy, Facelifts are popular with women and men from anywhere over 40 years of age. Our highly skilled Plastic Surgeons in Sydney will work with you to develop a truly customised treatment plan that targets your areas of concern. This may include a Mini Facelift through to a Full Facelift which incorporates neck and eyelid lifts. 


Over time, your skin loses its natural elasticity resulting in a loss of definition in your facial features. A Facelift surgery can:

  • Correct sagging, loose skin on your face and neck
  • Reduce the appearance of deep lines and jowls
  • Restore volume to the face, particularly the cheeks
  • Redefine your chin, jawline, and the contour of your neck
  • Tighten and lift the brows for a refreshed look

    What is a Facelift?

    Gravity, sun exposure and day-to-day stress can take a toll on our bodies and, unfortunately our face and neck are not excluded. Over time, this damage can result in:

    • Reduced skin elasticity
    • Wrinkled, saggy, or loose skin
    • Deep wrinkles on the face, particularly near the mouth and nose
    • Sagging cheeks or development of jowls
    • Double chin or folds in the skin on the neck

    Facelift procedures rejuvenate the facial profile, by removing or redistributing excess skin and fat and tightening the underlying facial muscles. 


    There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach when it comes to Facelifts.

    In fact, your surgeon will consider a number of factors when customising your Treatment Plan. These factors include:

    • Your Age
    • Skin Elasticity
    • Muscle Tone
    • Bone Structure
    • General Health

    Based on this assessment your Surgeon may recommend:

    • A Neck Lift suited to clients with a double chin or excessive neck skin, fat or wrinkles.
    • A Mini Facelift, also known as S Lift, to remove excess skin and fat around the lower and middle section of the face (nose, cheeks and chin)
    • Upper Facelift, also known as a Forehead Lift or a Brow lift, to remove deep frown lines, wrinkles or excess skin above the eyebrows
    • A Full Facelift to target the neck, chin, mouth and sides of nose.

    Facelifts do not address sagging/drooping around the eyes—this is the goal of an Eyelid Lift, which can be added to the surgery. 

    Facelift Recovery.

    Recovery periods vary from person to person; however, clients must rest for 2 weeks after their Facelift and allow 6 weeks for post-surgery recovery. Healing is an individual process but a full recovery generally takes place over 4 – 6 months. During this time, numbness in the face and ears should subside.

    Facelift Risks.

    When considering any surgical procedure, it is important to understand that despite choosing a skilled plastic surgeon, receiving care in a premium hospital, and following recovery protocols, all surgical procedures carry risk and complications can still occur.

    Your Surgeon Consultation

    Your Surgeon Consultation

    Meet with your Plastic Surgeon to discuss your desired outcomes and plan your procedure. Your Surgeon will assess your facial features, muscle tone, bone structure and skin elasticity before recommending the most suitable treatment to address your concerns. 

    Your Plastic Surgery

    Your Plastic Surgery

    Your surgery will take place in one of our state-of-the-art, accredited private hospitals. You will be placed under general anaesthetic for the duration of the procedure (typically 2 hours). Once complete, and assuming good health, most of our patients can return home 2-3 hours after they wake.

    Veneer Review and Refinement

    Your Recovery Period

    Plan for at least 2 weeks rest after surgery. Your face will be bandaged for 24 hours and drains will be used.  A supportive chin strap may be provided to wear for up to 2 weeks. After 2 weeks, clients can normally return to work. Your Surgeon will advise when you can reintroduce exercise.

    Frequently Asked Questions.

    A great decision starts with great questions; so ask us as many as you can to see if a Facelift is right for you. To help you get started, here are the answers to questions we’re most commonly asked.

    What is the best age to have a Facelift?

    It’s not so much the age you are, but the appearance of your skin. Facelifts have the most dramatic effects when performed on clients with some remaining skin elasticity and a defined bone structure. In general, the ageing process begins in your early 40s. The most common age for a Facelift is in the mid 50 – 60s. 

    How long will it take to recover from a Facelift?

    Recovery times will vary based on factors like age, health, and the specific type of Facelift procedure you get. Most clients return to work 2 weeks after surgery and can resume normal activities within 4 weeks. Activities like swimming, weight training and strenuous exercise must be avoided for at least 6 weeks. As with all aspects of your procedure, your Plastic Surgeon will provide you with personalised advice on post-operative care and recovery timelines. 

    Will I have scarring after a Facelift?

    Scars are an inevitable part of any surgery. Our highly skilled Plastic Surgeons use leading techniques to minimise scaring and, where possible, make incisions inconspicuous. Generally, Facelift scars can be hidden within the natural folds of your skin and hairline. 

    Are the results from a Facelift permanent?

    The results from a Facelift are long-lasting, but the procedure cannot prevent your skin from continuing to age. A healthy lifestyle and a good skincare routine will help to maintain the results of your Facelift surgery. 


    Will I need to have a Revision Facelift in the future?

    While the results from a Facelift aren’t permanent, the procedure does not require a revision or ‘redo’ in the future like other Plastic Surgery procedures. Though you are still subject to ageing, you will always look younger than if you did not have the procedure done. 

    Can fillers offer the same result as a Facelift?

    Cosmetic fillers are designed to replace volume. They do not elevate sagging skin or reduce muscle bands on the neck. Fillers can reduce some wrinkles, but this is not permanent—they do not smooth the skin nearly as much as a Facelift. 

    Will I experience pain after my Facelift?

    Every client has a different pain threshold. Some clients will experience mild discomfort after their Facelift procedure, while others will find the feeling more severe. Pain medication will be prescribed to alleviate any discomfort. In most cases, bruising, swelling and numbness around the face and ears will dissipate after the first week*. As with all aspects of your procedure, your Plastic Surgeon will provide you with personalised advice on what to expect and how to best-manage your recovery. 

    *In some cases, numbness can last for 4 months. We recommend you speak to your Plastic Surgeon about any concerns you have leading up to your procedure.
