    What Is Face Lift Surgery?

    Face lift surgery is aimed at lifting up the skin, deeper tissues and the underlying muscles in the face making the appearance of your face tighter and smoother. It is the third most requested cosmetic surgery in the UK after breast enlargement and eyelid surgery.

    Surgeons who carry out face lift surgery must have undertaken specialist training and should be registered with the Specialist Register in Plastic Surgery at the General Medical Council.

    The surgery is usually performed under general anaesthetic. Incisions are made above the hairline at the temples and extend naturally in line down the front of the ear and continue around behind the ear lobe and toward the lower scalp.

    Most surgeons will apply bandaging following the surgery to reduce the bruising and swelling. These usually stay in place for one or two days and then the stitches are usually removed within 7 to 8 days. Is this procedure is not followed it may have been negligent and can result in face lift surgery claims.

    What Are The Type Of Face Lift Surgery?

    There are many different types of face lift surgery which are dependent on the different types of incision used, area of the face treated, and how invasive the intensity of the procedure is. All of the different types of face lift surgery must be carried out to an acceptable standard or it can lead to face lift surgery claims.

    Risks and complications can occur during face lift surgery which can include;

    • Pain
    • Infection
    • Swelling
    • Uneven features
    • Skin colour changes
    • Loss of skin or hair
    • Damage to facial nerves

    The surgeon who performed your face lift surgery should have discussed these complications with you before your face lift surgery. He or she should have also taken a detailed history of any medical problems you have suffered with in the past, a family history and details of your medical conditions.

    This is important as there are some health conditions which stand as a health risk for face lift surgery.

    If you smoke, the surgeon should have also told you to stop smoke at least two weeks before the surgery.

    It is then for the surgeon to discuss your plan of treatment, for example the type of facelift you want, the type of anaesthesia, and the location of the incisions.

    If your surgeon did not discuss these risks with you before your surgery it often leads to avoidable complications, resulting in face lift surgery claims. You can contact our team of specialist solicitors to find out if you have a claim for compensation for face lift surgery negligence.
