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.
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 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.
