As we age, gravity tugs at the skin and vital tissues break down, causing a once-youthful face to appear drawn and deflated.
Facial aging manifests differently in each person. Dr. Flood carefully evaluates each patient in order to choose the proper operative technique so that he can best address the areas that are of most concern to you.
Facelift Surgery Sydney
There are several ways to perform face lift surgery. Sydney plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. John Flood, uses three approaches based on the degree of ageing present in each case.
What To Expect
Facelift surgery is a highly-individualised procedure that requires a unique approach to treatment. You can trust that Dr. Flood will take the time to educate you about the risks and benefits of each procedure.
Dr. Flood has expert training in facial anatomy and provides each patient with a comprehensive analysis to treat not only skin problems, but structural problems as well. In order to get the most attractive results possible from facelift surgery, he may also suggest cheek implants or a fat grafting procedure to restore symmetry and enhance youthful contours.
The results of facelift surgery are fully present after 1 to 4 months. Most patients enjoy a renewed appearance with less excess skin, better skin contours, and firmer skin tone. The effects are permanent and long-lasting and may be visible for 5 to 10 years after surgery. For best results, Dr. Flood may recommend fat grafting 6 months after your procedure or anti-wrinkle injections to soften wrinkles. Additional improvements in the look of sun damage and uneven skin tone can be achieved with laser skin resurfacing.
