Facelift Surgery

Are you wanting to restore a more youthful appearance?

The Sydney Cosmetic Sanctuary can help you look refreshed and revived without the tell-tale signs of facial surgery and with minimal downtime.

What is a Facelift?

A Facelift restores the contour of your face and neck to produce a more youthful appearance. A facelift involves an incision along your hairline, and around the ear, which allows your underlying facial muscle tissue to be tightened, and any excess skin and fat removed.

In the past, this type of facial surgery involved pulling back the skin of the face and neck and then removing the excess skin. The result of this technique was a too tight, ‘windswept’ look. This technique also did not ‘lift’ the face; it simply pulled it back and to the side which created a flatter, more two dimensional appearance. Instead, the contemporary techniques at Sydney Cosmetic Sanctuary deliver a refreshed and rejuvenated look, absent of obvious signs that you had a facelift.

Types of Facelift Surgery

The Sydney Cosmetic Sanctuary at Baulkham Hills offers the following facial surgery procedures:

  • Traditional Facelift Surgery – where the skin is elevated and tightened.
  • The SMAS Facelift – The SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic system) is one of the most important structures in facial support. In a SMAS Facelift the underlying muscles and tissues are tightened to lift the facial structures, the neck and the brow, and excess skin is removed. Dr Kumar tends to prefer using the SMAS Facelift because it targets all the layers of the face, neck and brow, and not just the skin. While a SMAS Facelift does require an overnight hospital stay, the results will be longer-lasting due to the underlying structural facial rejuvenation.

Other Facial Surgery Procedures

These procedures can also be combined with Neck Lift, Brow Lift or Eyelid Surgery, as well as Laser Resurfacing, Microdermabrasion, Medical-grade Peels, Cosmetic Injections, Wrinkle Relaxer Injections, Lip Enhancement Treatments and Wrinkle Filler Injections (Dermal Fillers).

Dr Kumar’s practice as a professional surgeon takes inspiration from the concept of aesthetic facial balancing. This refers to adopting a holistic approach in combining surgical and non-surgical techniques to facial rejuvenation. It also applies to Facelift Surgery being tailored to each patient and not being a specific product. Aesthetic facial balancing epitomises the combination of skills and techniques that Dr Kumar uses to help restore balance to the face and ensure optimal aesthetic outcomes are achieved.

How To Maximise Your Surgery Outcomes

Facial Surgery can help to significantly improve your appearance, however this is just the first step. Post-surgery care is equally important to ensure that your outcomes are enhanced and maintained.

In particular, if you are pursuing facial rejuvenation procedures such as Facelift Surgery, Laser Skin Resurfacing, Medical-Grade Microdermabrasion or Medical-Grade Facial Peels, we recommend that you use quality Medical-Grade Skincare post-surgery to retain and prolong your treatment results.

Why medical-grade? Medical-Grade Skincare is often formulated by clinicians and physicians and is based on results and trials. It contains a higher concentration of active ingredients than products available to purchase in a supermarket and is created to target specific skin concerns and conditions. In some cases it can enhance and prolong the results of cosmetic surgery and work to transform the skin and offer ongoing results rather than a quick fix.

It is natural for your skin to be slightly sensitive after facial surgery which is why good quality skincare is essential to ensure the fastest recovery and best results. We also recommend our patients to switch to Medical-Grade Mineral Makeup post treatments as pure mineral makeup is crafted from high quality natural ingredients that can be beneficial for your skin. We may also recommend your start skincare treatment before your procedure to get maximum value and results from it.

We always make tailored recommendations for all our patients to help them with their recovery and to maximise their aesthetic goals.
