Facelift Golden Ratio

In facelift surgery, Dr. Julian De Silva understands the significance of meticulous attention to detail. He prides himself on seamlessly concealing scars within natural lines and creases, ensuring that his patients achieve results that look refreshingly natural. With his expertise, Dr. De Silva implements various surgical techniques to complete a comprehensive facelift, tailored to each individual’s unique needs. He approaches each procedure with the utmost care and precision, taking every measure to ensure that facelift incisions remain discreet. Dr. De Silva employs surgical techniques that not only rejuvenate but also minimise scarring, leaving his patients with results that enhance their natural beauty seamlessly.

1. Location of the incision. When it comes to where the incision is made, Dr. Julian De Silva has a clever approach. For women, he often places the incision inside the ear canal or behind a small bump in front of the ear called the tragus, keeping it well hidden. However, for men, growing beard hair towards the ears isn’t the best long-term plan, so Dr. De Silva opts for a different strategy. He skillfully uses a natural crease in front of the ear to camouflage the incision. Plus, Dr. De Silva’s meticulous surgical techniques ensure that the incisions are hidden with precision, leaving you with natural-looking results you’ll love.

2. Multiple-layered meticulous closure. Dr. Julian De Silva takes no shortcuts when it comes to closing incisions. He understands the importance of a multiple-layered meticulous closure to support soft tissues and prevent widened scars. This technique, although more time-consuming and challenging, is a hallmark of Dr. De Silva’s commitment to delivering exceptional results. By using deep stitches alongside superficial ones, he ensures that your skin heals beautifully.

3. Additional surgical techniques. In addition to his precise closure method, Dr. De Silva employs various surgical techniques to optimise outcomes. He carefully makes beveled incisions in the hairline to minimise hair loss and tightens deep muscles before closing the skin. By avoiding tension on the skin during closure, he enhances the overall outcome of the procedure.

4. Avoid staples. Dr. De Silva prioritises your comfort and healing process by steering clear of staples. Instead, he opts for fine sutures in areas without hair, promoting optimal healing and a seamless result. Each step of the process reflects Dr. De Silva’s dedication to providing the best possible care for his patients.

Improving Scars and Recovery

All surgical scars are red to pink initially which in most people reduces over a period of weeks. As early as one week concealer can be used to hide colour of scars. The final result when in most people scars have healed to a fine white line takes 12-18 months after surgery; most scars are white and discrete by this time period. A small proportion of scars may require a minor revision to make as discrete as possible. 

What can you do to improve your facelift scars?

  1. Follow your surgeon’s instructions & advice
  2. Keep your incisions clean and dry
  3. Begin gentle massage of the incisions after two weeks
  4. Avoid strenuous exercise and stress during your recovery
  5. Eat healthy-protein and high antioxidant containing foods
  6. Supplemental vitamin C
  7. Use of regenerative medicine (PRP, amniotic membrane product)
  8. Use of LED light phototherapy
  9. Use of oxygen therapy
  10. Avoidance of sun exposure with the use of hats and a high-quality sunblock of SPF 30 is important for 12-months after surgery to avoid redness and darkening of the incision sites.

Schedule a Consultation

When you have satisfied yourself regarding the above criteria, the next step is to meet face-to-face with the surgeon you are considering to pursue surgery with. Nothing can replace a face-to-face meeting with the surgeon themselves. The key to a good result is the artistry of the individual surgeon because no two faces are identical. Caution is advised in high street providers in which you are unable to meet the surgeon before the day of surgery as usually this means the surgeon is a mass market provider and may not be available after the surgery. More than one surgeon may ‘meet’ the qualifications but the focus should be that you feel comfortable with your surgeon and agree with their style. Excellent communication between you and your surgeon should be the main factor of your overall decision.


What our satisfied clients are saying

“I am currently in Dhaka, and I am healing very well. I am extremely happy with the results and it looks so natural that everyone says I look much fresher but no one can put a finger on the reason why. I just wanted to thank you again, and also ask if I can resume taking my Vitamin E and Omega 3 supplements.

Thanks you so much!”
