Facelift

Facelift procedures are designed to rejuvenate the face by a combination of reducing wrinkles and tightening facial structures to lift facial features and restore a more youthful appearance. Techniques vary depending on individual facial characteristics and the changes which are desired. All techniques involve scar placement in discreet areas.

Mr Morley has a particular interest in face and neck lift operations including minimal access facelift techniques. The MACS lift (Minimal Access Cranial Suspension) facelift involves relatively small scars in front of the ear and in the hairline. This technique is particularly suited to those wishing to correct jowling or loose tissue under the jawline and prominence of the naso-labial or midface areas. If a significant improvement to the appearance of the neck is also desired an incision behind the ear may also be added to perform a face and neck lift. Mr Morley has taught as a tutor in minimal access facial surgery on several courses teaching these techniques to other aesthetic surgeons. If thinning of the facial features is a concern then fat transfer techniques can also be utilised to augment thinning tissues. A successful result will lead to a more youthful appearance of the face and neck.

Most facelift or face and necklift procedures are performed with a general anaesthetic and an overnight stay in hospital after the operation.  Facelift procedures are often combined with blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery for those who also wish rejuvenation of the eyes.
