What do you know about facelift surgery (Rhytidectomy)?

A facelift, also known as wrinkle removal surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that addresses age-related changes in the cheeks, jowls, and neck. This procedure aims to reduce sagging skin around the lower half of the face, below the eyes.

A facelift surgery lifts and tightens sagging facial skin. During the procedure, surgeons make incisions along the hairline and remove excess skin. The remaining skin is then repositioned for a smoother, more youthful appearance. Some people choose to combine facelift with other procedures, like neck tightening or fat grafting, for a more comprehensive rejuvenation.

While a facelift offers long-lasting results, it’s important to remember that aging continues. It will not completely prevent your face from showing the natural signs of aging in the future.

Steps of facelift at Dr. Ahmed Abdel Gawad’s Center

Our center offers various facelift techniques, but all generally follow these common steps:

  • Making surgical incisions in the cheeks, directly above your hairline.
  • Removing excess skin from your face.
  • The remaining skin is then gently lifted and repositioned upwards and backwards. Sutures are used to secure the new position.
  • In some cases, fat redistribution or grafting may be necessary to enhance volume and create a more youthful look.
  • Finally, the face is dressed with bandages to minimize swelling and promote healing.

Frequently asked questions.

A facelift can give great results in terms of the confidence it can create for patients who undergo the treatment. But which procedure is right for you? Mr. Al-Jawad offers a completely free initial facelift consultation in Manchester, Liverpool, Newton-le-Willows or Bolton. He will discuss your individual concerns and advise you accordingly regarding the best course of treatment. In the meantime, the following can be used as a general guide. The mini facelift is not as dramatic in results but it is much less invasive and the recovery time is much less. This would be a better option for anyone who wants to enhance the mid-face and jowls and is looking for a more subtle end result.
A full facelift is more invasive and involves a longer incision in the face. But the results are more dramatic and suitable for those looking for great results on the entire face. A neck lift may be incorporated into your treatment plan if you have concerns about the neck area such as ligature (also known as turkey neck).
As long as there are no underlying health problems that could cause complications with surgery, there is no reason why you can't have a facelift when you get older. People in their 70s and later have had success with surgery. It is not the patient's age that determines whether he is okay for surgery but his current health condition and considerations regarding his past history.

A facelift is usually performed under general anesthesia.

This means that you will be literally asleep and completely unaware

of what is happening.

You will not be able to eat or drink for several

hours before your facelift procedure.


There are several different types of facelift procedures that

your surgeon may follow.

But in general the following will happen.

Your surgeon will make incisions in

your temples just above your hairline. These will extend in

front of the ear, under the lobe and then back behind the ear.

If the jawline is raised, the surgeon will also make incisions just below

the chin area.
Excess skin will be cut off.The remaining skin will be pulled back

and then up. The surgeon will then sew everything into place.
It may be necessary for the surgeon to redistribute facial fat and

tissue or, in some cases where significant volume loss occurs, the

surgeon may add more of it to give a more youthful result.
The surgeon will bandage your face to help reduce any

swelling or bruising resulting after the procedure.

You will likely stay in the operating room for two to three hours

and then spend a night in the hospital to check that everything

is as it should be. You won’t be able to drive home, so you’ll need to

make sure you have someone organized to drive you home from hospital.

Ideally, you will have someone stay with you for the first 24 hours

after you return home.

Painkillers will be advised to help relieve any pain caused by the surgery.

Bruising may remain visible for at least two weeks after your

facelift procedure.

It is recommended to avoid showering or getting the bandages wet

for several days after the procedure.

It is also recommended not to do any massage sessions or

use a sauna for several weeks after the procedure.

If you use a pillow to help elevate your head while resting, you may

find that it helps reduce swelling even further.

Bruising and swelling will appear immediately after the procedure. This should subside after a few weeks. 
This will improve quickly week after week, but the real results of a facelift may not appear until 6 to 9 months after surgery.
It is usually recommended to wait at least 10 to 14 days after facelift surgery before starting to apply makeup.

You’ve just had plastic surgery – everyone is commenting on how great you look. The surgery took years and years of your life. But do you need to change your passport photo?

The current guideline is for minor surgeries, including a full facelift. You do not have to change any legal documents containing your photograph.
A facelift is intended to give you a more youthful appearance, not make you look like a completely different person.
