Face Lift

What are the possible risks and complications associated with a face lift?
When undergoing a face lift, patients are at risk of experiencing complications such as infection, hair loss in areas that have scarred, facial asymmetry, skin necrosis and facial nerve damage.
At what age should I consider a face lift?
Although there is no certain age requirement for undergoing a facelift, for optimal results, we suggest patients be of at least 30 years of age before undergoing a facelift procedure. This enables us to treat visible signs of ageing, reduced facial volume, wrinkles and loss of collagen production.
How long does it take to recover from facelift surgery?
During the recovery period, your face and hairline will be partially covered in surgical dressings. Patients tend to find that they can return to work within 2-4 weeks of their procedures, depending on how rigorous their work may be. If your work does involves minimal strain, you can go back to work after around 3-4 days.
Will Medicare and/or Private Health Insurance cover the procedure?
As facelifts are a cosmetic procedure, there is no rebate from Medicare or private health funds – however, you may be eligible to claim your hospital fees depending on your level of cover.
Will there be much scarring?
Facelift incision scars are permanent, however they are covered by the hairline and natural contours of the face and ears.
