    Why Choose Dr De Silva in Harley Street, London ?

    “What is the VFR 7, it is a comprehensive solution to facial ageing, The Vertical Face Restore 7-Key steps. This is an artistic procedure that I have carefully created, perfected, and refined as a highly unique surgical procedure, thanks to its ability to address the entire face, and not just a portion of it. It has been developed over a 10-year period and thousands of hours of work and refinement.”

    Compared with a traditional facelift, the VFR technique offers far more differences than it does similarities, the lift is vertically oriented, not horizontally, which is a major reason for the natural look. Additionally, the VFR 7 addresses your entire face and not just a portion of it, simultaneously rejuvenating the outer brow, midface, jawline, and neck. A traditional facelift only addresses the jawline by pulling it toward the ears.

    7. Maintenance after facelift: Facial ageing is an ongoing phenomenon, after comprehensive rejuvenation, yearly maintenance will ensure longer lasting results

    (Triple approach, volume replacement with fillers, skin rejuvenation (laser, PRP) and skin tightening (Radiofrequency)

    What the Vertical Face Restore 7 is not?

    • Vertical lifted, not pulled sideways like a traditional facelift
    • Lifting and supporting, without removal of tissues, past techniques required removal of volume from face, soft tissues from eyes, fat from neck, lifting and preservation of natural volume means less fillers required long term
    • Not a shortcut. Key is release of facial ligaments, lifting areas to youth, looks better and lasts longer. This is a surgical solution that does have recovery and no instantaneous result. Most swelling goes between 2-6weeks
    • Puffy face often associated with excessive non-surgical facial treatments.
    • Non-surgical Many of our patients have been disappointed by lack of results from non-surgical skin tightening techniques that often promise more and deliver less
    • We all have asymmetry, even the most beautiful actors, models, no aesthetic procedure can achieve 100% symmetry.
    • Life solution. If you have had a significant life event, personal relationship breakup, professional issue, or just at a low point in life, having a procedure will not make you feel like a different person, wait until the right time discuss this with you doctor.
    • Perfection & Refinement. All natural artistic surgical procedures are about improvement, refinement and conservative. No results can be guaranteed, approximately 5% of patients may need a refinement procedure to get the best results.

    The Facial Ageing Challenge

    As you age, your face slowly droops with gravity from a ‘V-shaped’ jaw line that is youthful, to a ‘Squarer-shaped’ jaw line. This change occurs as the soft tissues in the face (also known as the “SMAS”) loosed, droop and descend (shown with green lines on the photo below). This leaves the face looking a different shape than it did during your youth, and with the facial ligaments (that are fixed) are responsible for that visible changes seen with facial ageing (shown with yellow arrows below). This shift in shape is the key problem with facial ageing, and addressing it is the most important and impactful way to create satisfying results.

    Non-surgical solutions that add volume i.e. fillers to the jaw line to reduce jowls often make the jaw line smoother, however they do not make you look more youthful, fillers do not restore the youthful ‘V-shaped’ jaw line. A key component in creating the Vertical Face Restore 7 was a solution to the underlying problem.

    By addressing the entire face at the same time, Dr. Julian De Silva was able to create natural results that restore a youthful appearance.

    Dr De Silva has transformed thousands of faces through his unique surgical techniques. Below is a small sample of some of his transformations.

    Signature Vertical Face Restore 7 – Key Areas

    Loss Of V-Shaped Jaw Line

    Square jowls, Skin laxity, needs vertical deep-plane facelift without sideways pull of traditional SMAS facelift or removal of natural volume.

    Vertical Restore releases the principal facial ligaments in the face and neck, thus allowing the tissue to be elevated and repositioned without pulling against those ligaments. This is the reason the effect of the VFR is so effective and is why, despite the large improvements, the results look fake nor “pulled. “We believe the Vertical Face Restore incorporates a deep-plane facelift approach, offering the most advanced facelifting techniques for the face and neck.

    A small proportion of patients benefit from only a facelift procedure, in most patients the neck needs to be improved at the same time as the face to give the best results. When the face drops with gravity, the neck also sags as the neck muscle is linked in terms of facial anatomy, the vertical face restore technique lifts the face upwards restoring the contours and youthful shape of the neck at the same time. When combined with release of ligaments and tightening of the loose neck platysma muscle, the neck is sharper and more youthful in shape. A typical horizontal lift won’t address the neck in the same way as because it pulls the face sideways, key to facial harmony is lifting vertically upwards to restore naturally. The loose skin is then removed behind the ears.

    This patient had my Vertical Face Restore-7 technique including a deep plane facelift with lifting of the dropped face in an upward direction restoring natural ‘V-shaped’ jaw line. This deep plane technique requires key release of the facial ligaments to enable a longer lasting facelift technique

    Square Shaped Fullness To Jaw Line & Neck

    Sometimes accompanied with small chin and lower cheek fullness, can benefit from buccal fat reshaping & chin implant

    This patient had my Vertical Face Restore-7 technique, a deep plane facelift with reduction of buccal fat pad, enhancing the ‘V-shaped’ jaw line. This technique avoids extra scars inside the mouth by using detailed knowledge of the anatomy, Dr De Silva has pioneered this technique and presented to other surgeons in the UK and internationally.

    Tired Eye Appearance

    Improved with Preservation Blepharoplasty & Temporal Brow lifting to restore youthful eye appearance.

    Preservation of the natural anatomy is of key importance with natural looking blepharoplasty results. Too much removal of skin and soft tissues results in a different looking person. This can be seen in many celebrities, some years ago Renee Zellweger underwent eyelid surgery, afterwards she looked different, with good natural eyelid surgery it is likely that most people will not notice that you have undergone surgery.

    Often the tail of the eyebrow descends with gravity and the best results, lifting with temporal (lateral) brow lift enhances the appearance in this area, I like to hide these scars completely within the natural hair (many patients ask if this requires shaving of my hair, no this is never required!). For many more photographs of patients before and after blepharoplasty surgery with Dr De Silva’s preservation blepharoplasty techniques please see this link.

    This patient had my Vertical Face Restore-7 technique including a temporal (aka lateral) brow lift and blepharoplasty to rejuvenate her tired eye appearance. The key steps are lifting and use of fat transfer to give a more youthful appearance. Older techniques involved removing soft tissues this thins the natural anatomy and looks more tired long-term.

    Mid Face Deep Lines & Lengthening Of Lip

    Fat transfer to restore volume with deep plane lift, vertical lifting of lengthened lip area with lip lift.

    The area around the lips is often a challenging area and is unique to each individual person. This area requires a cautious approach to conceal scars in natural creases under the nose. The deep lines require release of the deep facial ligaments, vertical lifting often in combination with fat transfer for restoring natural volume.

    This patient of Dr De Silva had my Vertical Face Restore-7 technique including a lip lift and fat transfer to rejuvenate the mid face area. The key steps are conservative lip lifting and use of fat transfer to give a more youthful appearance. Not all patients need lip lift procedures however it can be a powerful technique to add further balance and harmony to the face.

    Skin Ageing With Lines & Enlarged Pores

    Fat transfer to restore volume with deep plane lift, vertical lifting of lengthened lip area with lip lift.

    The area around the lips is often a challenging area and is unique to each individual person. This area requires a cautious approach to conceal scars in natural creases under the nose. The deep lines require release of the deep facial ligaments, vertical lifting often in combination with fat transfer for restoring natural volume.

    This patient of Dr De Silva had my Vertical Face Restore-7 technique including a lip lift and fat transfer to rejuvenate the mid face area. The key steps are conservative lip lifting and use of fat transfer to give a more youthful appearance. Not all patients need lip lift procedures however it can be a powerful technique to add further balance and harmony to the face.

    Enhance Recovery & Safety

    Use of regenerative medicine (PRP) and Oxygen therapy to enhance recovery. Sedation (‘Twilight’) Anaesthesia to avoid the risks and side effects of general anaesthesia with our customised Sedation Anaesthesia that has been developed over ten year period.

    Dr De Silva has worked with the same team of anaesthesiologists for over ten years, and have every year audited and improved their sedation anaesthesia technique, this enables us to avoid the risks and longer recovery associated with general anaesthesia. For more information on sedation anaesthesia and how it differs from general anaesthesia please see this link.

    This patient of Dr De Silva had my Vertical Face Restore-7 technique in a 7.5-hour procedure with Sedation (‘Twilight’) Anaesthesia. Although the procedure took hours to complete, she was able to walk out of the operating theatre ONLY 30 minutes after the procedure. The equivalent recovery with general anaesthesia is hours and all patients have more recovery and potential side effects. The photographs show before, one week after and two weeks after the VFR-7 procedure.

    Maintenance After Facelift

    Deep plane facelift surgery lasts for up to 10 years and maintenance of your appearance after surgery will enhance longevity of results. Although with surgery we can address centimetres of facial ageing, non-surgical treatments can enhance millimetres. I, Dr. Julian De Silva, offer continued follow-up care for all my patients after surgery, I will see you annually and give you continuous care by forming long-term connections with you, should you choose to be my patient. Maintenance with non-surgical treatments include a triple approach; volume replacement (including fillers) skin rejuvenation (facial aesthetics injections, laser, regenerative medicine) and skin tightening (Radiofrequency).
