Lift your Neck and any loose skin on the Face
Creating a natural look is important so that friends and family don't notice that you have had plastic surgery.
Mr Uppal uses subtle techniques to hide the scar behind the ears which is called a mini facelift.
Make an appointment to see Mr Uppal to see how a facelift can benefot you.
How does the face age and how does a facelift work?
Take a look at the structure of the face in the diagram below and see how a face lift will lift the parts of the face that sag with time. As we get older our skin becomes less elastic and starts to droop. All the ligaments and muscles holding the face up start to weaken and sag. This creates wrinkles and a droopy face. Face lift surgery can correct all this.
Mr Uppal is an expert in precise face lift surgery in London and Windsor. He will create a natural look so no one will be able to see that you have had surgery. As he specialises in surgery of the face, he will ensure there is no damage to nerves or other structures seen in the diagram below.
Choosing a surgeon for your face lift is a big decision and so you must ensure that they have experience in this field as Mr Uppal does. He is also up-to-date with the latest techniques to minimise risks from surgery. Mr Uppal regularly attends international meetings in the US, Europe and Asia on face lift surgery and give lectures on the subject also.
Who is a good candidate for a face lift?
Patients who have signs of sagging skin around the face and neck will benefit from a facelift. This usually occurs in the 40s and 50s but some people in their late 30s can also have a sagging neck or jowls. Jowls are the sagging bits of skin at the ends of the mouth going to the chin. They can make the person look sad even though try feel fine.
Patients age depending on lifestyle (too many late nights), genetics (what they inherit from their parents) and others factors such as smoking and sun exposure. Good creams can slow down the ageing process. No cream will reverse wrinkles or ageing even though the marketing will make these claims.
How do I keep my face looking young?
The best advice is to take plenty of sleep, stay hydrated, don’t smoke and use sun-screen. The rest is up to genetics and unpredictable factors such as weight loss. We all lose volume in our cheeks as we get older which makes us look gaunt and older. Face lift surgery by Mr Uppal can improve all these factors giving a fresh appearance.
How long does a facelift last?
How long face lift surgery lasts depends on lifestyle and genetics. Patients who have parents with early signs of ageing and a lifestyle that includes smoking, lots of sun damage and lack of sleep will age quickly. Patients who look after themselves and their skin, age more slowly.
We cannot change our genetics which determines the thickness of our skin and the elasticity of our skin collagen. Thin skin and weak collagen make us age faster. We can control our lifestyle however to delay the ageing of skin. Use a daily sunscreen cream and avoid sunlight. Get lots of sleep, don’t smoke and drink plenty of water everyday. This will protect the skin of the face and slow down ageing.
Facelifts usually last about 10 years. This depends on the factors mentioned above. Genetics and a fast lifestyle will mean the facelift doesn’t last as long. Jowls may return and the neck skin may sag unless good care is taken of the skin. A face lift may last over 10 years if we take good care of our health and skin.
