Face & Neck Lift
GET THE NATURAL LOOK
Dr Vlad Milovic specialises in achieving a “natural look” for facelift and neck lift procedures, using a number of advanced cosmetic surgical techniques – such as the MACS lift and S-Lift (Composite Face lift) to achieve a more youthful appearance, for both men and women.
Dr Milovic’s goal for facelift surgery is to ensure that patients achieve a natural, rejuvenated appearance and not a mask or pulled tight appearance so commonly associated with conventional methods.
Traditional or conventional facelifting techniques don’t necessarily take into account the fact the face ages as a single, dynamic unit, rather than as a series of static, independent parts. Over time, traditional facelifts can therefore lead to a tight, unnatural-looking appearance.
HOW DOES A FACELIFT WORK?
As we age the skin on the face and neck starts to lose elasticity. We can develop jowls, crow’s feet may appear at the corner of our eyes and the skin beneath the chin may start to sag. These are the inevitable signs of ageing and if you’re unhappy that your face has aged, a Rhytidectomy or face and neck lift may be the facial plastic surgical procedure you’ll want to consider. This decision can be discussed at length with Dr Milovic and sometimes other non-surgical options may be considered.
A facelift can be performed separately or together with a neck lift. The surgery may be performed under general anaesthesia or under sedation and will require an overnight hospital stay.
Most facelifts are performed for people aged between 40 and 65, but older people can also have facelifts.
Dr Milovic does not perform the “thread” facelift technique, which he considers to be problematic in terms of it’s overall success rate.
