About Face Lift Surgery
It is common knowledge that the first signs of ageing typically appear on the face. The smile lines get deeper, the jowls become more prominent, more wrinkles appear and the skin gets looser. These changes are also accelerated by sun exposure. Facelift surgery can assist in restoring a more youthful, natural appearance.
Melbourne based plastic surgeon Mr Keith Mutimer performs a comprehensive range of facial rejuvenation surgical procedures that include face lift, brow lift, neck lift, eye lid surgery, rhinoplasty, ear surgery, facial implants as well as many non-surgical procedures. Also called "rhytidectomy" a face lift smoothes loose skin and wrinkles on the face and neck, tightens underlying tissues which have become lax and sagging with age, and gets rid of excess fatty tissue. It removes cheek folds and jowls – the deep lines or folds that run from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth – and redefines the jawline. As a result, your face will appear firmer and more youthful.
Face lift surgery performed by Mr Mutimer is an inpatient procedure and is performed under General Anaesthetic.
Initial consultation: Facelift surgery clients first meet Mr Mutimer for a 30 min consultation where you will discuss the procedure in detail, technique to be used and recovery time. Photos will be taken. Following this you will meet with our Patient Advisor who will take you through costs and discuss potential dates for your surgery.
Pre-operative appointment: 2 weeks prior to your surgery you will meet Dr Mutimer again for a final consultation. You will also meet with the Patient Advisor and Practice Nurse to finalise all administration, and discuss pre and post-operative care instructions. Payment for your surgery is also finalised.
