Face Lift

Reduce the appearance of smile lines and sagging in your lower face.


Nothing can stop us from growing older, but for those who want to fight the effects of time and gravity, face lift techniques are better than ever for turning back the clock on facial aging. Face Lift surgery in Sydney can help you significantly reduce the appearance of smile lines, jowls, and sagging in your lower face with a single procedure. Today’s restorative face lift techniques produce results that allow you to look naturally younger without the overpulled look of older facelift approaches.

Quick Facts

Anesthesia: General anaesthesia
In/Outpatient: Inpatient 
Length of surgery: 2 to 4 hours
Recovery: Most patients are able to return to work within 10 to 14 days, and often resume strenuous activities shortly after. We recommend avoiding sun exposure and wearing an SPF of 30 or higher for at least 6 months.  
Results: Bruising should dissipate within 2 to 3 weeks, and final results are typically seen between 4 and 8 weeks. Assuming a healthy lifestyle is maintained, results should last from 7 to 10 years. 

Your Treatment with Dr. Tim
Dr. Tim has trained with plastic surgery specialists from around the world. This training and Dr. Tim’s extensive experience help him create personalized results for each individual. Whether you’re interested in a more intensive surgery or would like to learn about complementary procedures for your Sydney facelift, Dr. Tim and his entire staff are dedicated to providing personalized attention for beautiful results.

Many patients avoid cosmetic surgery procedures due to fear of a painful recovery period, so Dr. Tim developed an innovative express recovery process to increase your comfort. This system enables patients to get back to their daily activities more comfortably and quickly.

What to Expect
Face Lift surgery involves an incision that is easily hidden in the hairline and behind the ears. This allows Dr. Tim to remove and reposition fat, tighten underlying muscles and then re-drape skin to create a smoother and refreshed appearance. The restorative techniques Dr. Tim uses re-create the look of your more youthful face, rather than simply pulling the skin tighter. This allows for a much more natural, lasting result.

Sometimes, an additional incision is made under the chin to assist the surgeon in improving the appearance of sagging skin around the neck. Some patients also decide to use face implants to restore volume and symmetry to the face. Dr. Tim customizes each facelift procedure based on a patient’s cosmetic needs and facial structure. Your options will be covered at length during your consultation.

Your Results
Results for facelift procedures begin to emerge within the first week of surgery, and most patients are able to return to work within 10 to 14 days. Dr. Tim recommends that people wait at least 2 weeks before attempting more strenuous activities. Most patients find that their bruises are gone at the 3 week mark, and enjoy their final results for 7 to 10 years.

Sometimes, people find that a facelift can serve as only one part of the solution to their cosmetic needs. Dr. Tim commonly performs complementary procedures for facelift patients, including brow liftneck lift and an eyelid lift. Each of these procedures is highly customisable to match your personal needs.
