    Facelift Frequently Asked Questions

    How long does a facelift take?

    Depending on the facelift type and if any other treatments are being undertaken, surgery can take anywhere from two to four hours or more.

    What type of facelift is best for me?

    Using his experience as a facial plastic surgeon, the current state of your face and skin, and information gained from discussion during your consultation, Dr De Silva will recommend the optimal surgery to undergo in order to achieve your desired outcome.

    How do I choose a facelift surgeon in London?

    One of the most important parts of surgery is choosing your surgeon, especially for surgery on the delicate and complex face. There are a few things to ensure when it comes to making your choice:

    • That they are a specialist facial plastic surgeon
    • That they are detail-oriented and meticulous
    • That they understand facelifts require not just medical technique but an artists’ touch
    • That you have a good rapport and feel comfortable with them

    Patients come from all over London, the UK, and the world to be treated by Dr De Silva and his team, who treat each patient like family.

    Can I combine a rhytidectomy with other procedures?

    As part of your procedure, we may recommend other treatments, such as a neck lift, blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) or fat transfer to supplement and enhance the end result.

    These will be conducted during your surgery to combine recovery time.

    Will I have visible scars?

    Where possible, Dr De Silva hides incisions within the natural creases in the face. 99% of scars are virtually invisible, achieved by using meticulous technique and 3 levels of stitches.

    Is surgery painful?

    Before surgery is commenced, you are put to sleep, before having a local anaesthetic applied.

    Aside from mild discomfort, many patients report having very little pain after surgery, and often only require basic pain relief, if any.

    Am I a good candidate?

    A good candidate for a facelift has facial ageing with symptoms of sagging of the skin and soft tissues of the face, deepening of the nasolabial folds (a line between nose and mouth) and loose skin below the neck with loss of the angle between the chin and neck. The patient should be in good health, and a non-smoker with have realistic goals of rejuvenating their face.

    What age is suitable for a facelift?

    There is no fixed age limit to undergo cosmetic surgery; the person must have good health and be a non-smoker as safety always comes first
