Types of patients that will present for face lifting will generally be patients in their...from anywhere early 40s onwards, who would like to see their jowls and the folds in their face just lifted and everybody can stand in front of the mirror and do this, and so that they feel better and younger. And it's these type of patients that might come and have a mini-face lift to start with. The mini-face lift itself will involve a small incision that extends from the hairline usually just down to just underneath around the ear. The incisions are well hidden because they pass around the tragus, which is this little bit of the ear here. And the mini-face lift's incisions, we usually stop just behind the earlobe. If you're a little bit older, so if you're in your say 50s, late 40s or 50s, you might want to be looking to have more of a face and neck lift, where you want to tighten the tissues of the upper neck as well, and then the incision will go further around and into the hairline. And that will allow us to take up the laxity of the skin as well.

In a younger person, mini facelift may be suitable because they may not have as much skin laxity as an older person. And whereas in an older person, you need to take the incision for a facelift farther around at the back of the hair in order to take up the skin laxity as well, and that would be a full facelift rather than a mini facelift.

Patients for this type of surgery are patients who are usually anywhere between mid-40s to mid-60s who have got laxity of the tissues of the face. They're getting some jowling and they're getting some heaviness in the neck. Usually, they've read around the procedure. They know what they want. And they're usually quite realistic in expectations. You have to be obviously aware that you will have a scar, and that scar will be around the ear. And most patients are aware of that. So patients who've got good expectations will do well.

I think managing expectations for facelifts is very important. What we will do is we will tighten all the tissues of the SMAS layer and the skin as well, and in the immediate post-operative period those tissues will feel quite tight and very lifted. We know that in the first six months those tissues will gradually settle and soften. And therefore sometimes patients, if they're are not aware of this fact, may feel, "Oh, my facelift was better when it was initially done, and then it failed." So we have to manage expectations. Tell them that they are going to have swelling. It is going to feel very tight to start with, but then it will settle. What we do is we obviously take photographs so we can show patients photographs prior to their surgery. And then ideally about a year after their surgery so that they can see that they've got benefit from it.

Recovery time from a facelift really depends on the amount of work that is involved. If you come and have a small mini facelift which you can even do small facelifts under local anaesthetic, then really you should be looking at recovery within a week or so. If you're having...if you've got a heavy jowls and heavy neck and you have a lot of work done on both the face and the neck then you can be looking for up to two to three weeks off work. So it does vary from person to person and I think patients do need to be aware of that.

After our brow lifting, generally, recovery is relatively good. Patients may get some bruising and swelling, usually extending around the eye, upper eyelids, and even down into the cheek a little bit. Main recovery is about 7 to 10 days. There'll obviously be some little scars in the hairline if we do endoscopic technique, and those scars will take some time to settle down. Often, scars initially are a bit red and lumpy, and as time goes by, they'll tend to fade away. There is a small risk of having a little bit of hair loss where the scars are.

Once you hit 65 plus, your skin is starting to get thinner and so you tend to have changes in the skin as well. That if you do a facelift you really need to think about addressing skin problems with a procedure such as a peel as well or often they'll find that they've got wrinkles and they may not be quite as happy as some of the younger patients would be.

A face lift is a term which covers a number of type procedures, mainly aimed at, obviously, lifting the tissues of the face. When you read about face lifts, you'll read about things like a SMAS face lift, a mini face lift, a max face lift, a thread face lift. So it's a general term, really. In traditional face lifting, the way it was undertaken was to actually lift the skin up of the tissues of the face, and then to pull it back and to hold it there. And that was when we saw the classic problems, where the tissues underneath dropped but the skin was tight, and it didn't look very natural. So these days, face lifting techniques, all of the techniques I've described generally, apart from thread lifting, involve lifting up the skin and then tightening the muscles, and the, what's known as the SMAS layer, which is the layer of connective tissue which is underneath the skin.

There are a number of different methods of actually holding the eyebrows up. You do need to support them initially during the healing period, and we can either use bone tunnels where we drill a little tunnel in the bone and use some sutures to hold the eyebrows up with that...using that, or we can use...there's various different other devices available. There's something called an Endotine brow lift, which is a small, little, hook-type device which can help to hold the eyebrows up, or we can use something called a Mitek anchor, which is a small, little suture that's fixed into the bone as well.

Risks of the surgery include numbness or altered sensation of the forehead or even the scalp. There's a couple of nerves that come out of the bones just here and here. And, these nerves move up into the forehead and into the scalp, so if these nerves are either pulled or cut in some cases if you're doing a big incision, then you can get some persistent numbness or altered sensation. With any surgery, there are other risks as well. Bleeding, infection, asymmetry are risks to any kind of facial surgery and patients should be aware of these with all the procedures that we undertake. There's a risk that the eyebrows...when we do the surgery, the eyebrows will always drop very slightly as well, so patients need to be aware of that.

Potential complications of facelifts include bleeding, and one of the problems with doing a facelift is that we lift up quite a lot of the skin of the face. And if you do get bleeding in that area, you can get something called a "haematoma." And a haematoma is basically like a big bruise that sits under the skin. And if that's very small, we can usually drain it, either in the clinic or on the ward if it's immediately post-operatively. If it's a larger haematoma though, that can cause problems because it can act as a nidus for infection or a problem with wound healing. And very occasionally, patients would need to go back to theatre to have a haematoma drained. That's very unusual. It's usually about 2% to 3% of patients who have a facelift. It can be slightly higher in men. Other risks of facelifting surgery are infection, asymmetry. It's quite common for the face to feel a little bit lumpy and bumpy afterwards, initially, to start with, and usually that will settle down, but often that can take quite a bit of time, and patients need to be aware of that, as well. There is a scar with facelifting and that scar will be red and lumpy to start with, and then it will gradually settle over a period of about nine months to a year. There are some risks. There are some nerves that run in the face, as well. There's a nerve that runs just below the earlobe, and you can get some numbness of that area afterwards which can be permanent. It's very common to get numbness of a lot of the skin of the face after a facelift, as well, so patients need to be aware of that. That's normal recovery. Other risks, there's a nerve that runs through the face, the facial nerve, and that nerve comes out quite deep down, but as it gets towards the front of the face, it actually splits into five branches. And those branches supply the upper part of the face, the forehead, eyes, mid-face, and then the smile and the neck. And if those branches of the nerves get stretched, then occasionally you can get some mild weakness of the face. Again, this is unusual, but it's just something that patients need to be aware of. It would usually be a temporary problem. Very, very occasionally, it can be permanent.

The different types of brow lifts that are available are endoscopic brow lifts. Endoscopic brow lifts include a couple of small incisions in the hairline and at the side of the hair there. And then we can use endoscopic instruments with a camera to look and release the brow tissue, and lift it and support it at the hairline. And the benefit of this is that there is no visible scars. Other types of brow lifts that are available are direct brow lifts, and these are quite useful in patients who are challenged rather in the hairline department. So, if you've got no hair...it's good for men as well, because you can make an incision directly on the top of the eyebrow and take some tissue out in order to lift the eyebrows up. Obviously it will leave you with a small scar there. Other techniques of eyebrow lifting, before endoscopic techniques came in, you could make incisions either at the hairline or at the roof of the top of the head in order to tunnel down and lift the eyebrows up. So there are a number of different surgical techniques for doing brow lifts.

When we're choosing the type of facelift for a patient, the patient needs to be aware of all the different options. At the moment, there's a big trend for doing these thread-liftings which is where you're putting little threads through the skin and lifting the tissues up. Unfortunately, that doesn't involve removing skin and therefore it's a very temporary type of facelift, and we don't tend to do many of these basically because we feel that they are not a long-term solution to the problems that the patients are presenting us with. The smaller facelifts such as mini-facelift or MACS facelift those facelifts are good, as I say for the patients who are slightly younger, probably early 40s to mid 40s. It depends upon the skin laxity again, and then as you get older, then you're looking more towards having a full facelift.

With facelifting, obviously, what we can do is we can turn back the clock a certain amount. But you're never going to stop the clock. And so the ageing process is still going to go on. So, a facelift will last a number of years, but there might come a time when you're looking in the mirror again and you get some jowling back. Then you might wish to have the procedure repeated. I think that that's fairly realistic. Most patients are aware of that as well.

...that is really lowering the hairline. Occasionally, you can lift the hairline up, but the junction between the hair and the brow is quite important. When we're setting patients, we look at facial thirds, so from the base of the nose to the chin, should be one-third from the nose to this area here, the glabella should be one-third, and from here to the hairline should be another third. So some patients have very low hairlines and want them moved up, and other patients want them moved down.

A forehead surgery can involve just the bony part of the forehead, and also the hairline. The hairline is very important. So you can lower the forehead, the hairline, by making a specific incision once the patient's asleep. Around the hairline, there is a very specific incision that bevels the cuts so that the hair follicles grow through the scar and reduce the chances of having an obvious scar.
