Information on Facelift surgery


A Facelift can be a lower facelift, a neck lift, a brow lift, eye lid surgery or any combination of.

Most often a lower face and neck lifts are performed together in combination. Very rarely will our surgeons advise a neck of facelift alone.

These procedures are categorized the following way;

  • Facelift – a lower face and neck lift (with or without the eyelid surgery)
  • Full Facelift- a lower face, neck and brow lift (with or without eyelid surgery)

The recommended length of stay in Phuket for these procedures is 16 days. Clients are provided with a full treatment plan and accurate quote after the surgeon has reviewed images of their face and has understood their main concerns.

 Incisions

When having a facelift incisions are made around the ears to tighten the skin of the lower face. The incisions will be behind and in front of the ears and are barely visible after time.

When having a brow lift there are two types of incisions; endoscopic which is less invasive or a full incision which is more invasive. Upper eye lid surgery can also sometimes be referred to as a brow lift.

When having eyelid surgery incisions are made in the folds of the eyes and the excess skin is removed to give a more taught appearance. This procedure can be done under local or general anesthetic. The recommended length of stay in Phuket for this procedure is 9 days.

Recovery

Recovery from facelift surgery can be expected to be uncomfortable as there is quite a bit of bruising and/or swelling after receiving these procedures. However, pain relief medication is much more affective in Thailand than it is compared to that used in countries such as England, Australia and New Zealand.  A full head garment is to be worn after having facelift surgery to prevent and help with residual swelling. Each client will be advised by their surgeon as to how long they should wear this garment for, depending on which combination of procedures they have had.

The costs for Face Lift in Thailand are very competitive versus other parts of the world; a Lower Face and Neck Lift in Thailand costs from around $8,000 and we have heard of clients being quoted in excess of $20,000 in Australia and America for these procedures.

After Face Lift Surgery the face can be quite swollen and even bruised. It usually just takes a few days for most of the bruising to disappear but it can take several weeks for the swelling to go down. Most of our surgeons ask that you will stay for fourteen days after your surgery for proper follow up and so that you can have all of your stitches removed before going home. One of the benefits if having your cosmetic surgery in Phuket is that during this recovery period you can afford the luxury of your hotel room where you can order room service, have someone else do your laundry and cleaning or even sit and relax by the pool. It makes for a much more pleasant recovery than being at home. Having cosmetic surgery in Phuket also means that you won’t be seen by people that you know during your recovery period which is often something that people are very grateful for.
