Facelift

Overview

As we age, our skin loses its tone, elasticity and volume. If you are considering a facelift, it is likely that you have become self-conscious about these facial changes. With over 25 years experience, Dr Kalus and Dr Wyten are experts in facial aesthetics and surgical rejuvenation. Their approach to facelift surgery maintains the integrity and unique structure of your face.

After all, we understand the importance of a natural result. You want to look refreshed rather than different after a facelift surgery.

At Avenue Plastic Surgery, we have developed a minimally invasive approach designed to remove excess skin, tighten facial muscles add volume and, importantly, avoid risk of injury to the facial nerves.

Your Facelift

Because every face is different a thorough evaluation will be performed at your consultation including computer imaging.  In facelift surgery there is no room for error and therefore a no compromise, precision approach is required.  A thorough knowledge of facial anatomy is required and a range of procedures are available.  Minimal incisions produce imperceptible scarring, the facial muscles are carefully tightened while avoiding damage to the underlying nerves and the excess skin is removed. This provides an excellent and long lasting lift of the neck and jowls while preventing an over stretched appearance.  Your own fat is then strategically used to add volume in the most natural way.

Our Three Dimensional Approach to Facelit Surgery

  1. Total facial rejuvenation naturally.
    We use your body’s natural fat to restore facial volume and enhance the appearance of the lips, cheeks and brows.
  2. Our minimally invasive approach provides easy and rapid recovery.
    Our expert techniques minimise the risk of post-operative bleeding, bruising and scarring.
  3. We avoid cutting important ligaments to avoid nerve damage.
    Our minimally invasive technique is safer than traditional methods.
