Meloplasty (Facelift) - Melbourne

Meloplasty (Facelift) in Melbourne is a specialised surgical procedure designed to address the signs of ageing in the face and neck. This procedure involves lifting and tightening the underlying muscles and skin to reduce sagging and improve facial contours, resulting in a more refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

At Eastern Plastic Surgery we offer advanced techniques to achieve natural and lasting results, providing personalised care and comprehensive consultations to meet each patient's unique aesthetic goals.

What is Meloplasty?

Meloplasty, commonly known as a facelift, is a surgical procedure designed to address signs of ageing in the face and neck. This surgery involves lifting and tightening the underlying muscles and tissues of the face to reduce sagging and improve skin quality, providing a more refreshed and natural appearance.

What are the Benefits of Meloplasty (Face Lift)?

Facelift surgery offers several benefits for those seeking to address signs of facial ageing. Benefits include:

  • Reduction of sagging skin in the mid and lower face
  • Smoothing of deep creases or wrinkles in the cheeks extending from the nose to the corners of the mouth
  • Diminishing creases below the lower eyelids
  • Improvement in the appearance of jowls along the jawline
  • Enhanced muscle tone and reduction of laxity in the midface and chin area
  • Reduction of redundant skin and creases in the neck

Am I a Good Candidate for a Facelift in Melbourne?

You may be a good candidate for facelift surgery if you have noticeable signs of ageing, such as sagging skin, deep wrinkles, or loss of muscle tone in the face and neck. It's essential to have realistic expectations and understand that while facelift surgery is effective and long-lasting, it does not stop the natural ageing process.

In some cases, non-surgical treatments might be a more suitable option. During your consultation, Dr Lin will provide you with a suggested treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Are There any Risks or Side Effects?

Facelift surgery, like any surgical procedure, carries certain risks and potential side effects. These may include:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Nerve injury
  • Scarring
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Asymmetry
  • Anaesthesia risks

Discussing these risks with your surgeon is essential before deciding to have the procedure. See here for more information about the Risks and Complications of Cosmetic Surgery.

Meloplasty in Melbourne with Eastern Plastic Surgery

Consultation

Your initial consultation will involve a comprehensive assessment by one of our specialist plastic surgeons to discuss your aesthetic goals, review your medical history and determine the most suitable facelift procedure for you.

Procedure

Facelift surgery is performed under general anaesthetic, typically taking 3-4 hours. Incisions are usually made around the front of your ears, extending around the back to your hairline. Drain tubes and/or bulky dressings may be used while you are in the hospital. To ensure your safety, we routinely use antibiotics, surgical stockings and calf compressors to reduce the risks of blood clots.

Recovery

There will be some bruising around the facial area. The extent of bruising can vary significantly depending on the nature of the surgery performed.

  • 1 to 2 nights in hospital stay is usually required.
  • Be prepared for at least 2 weeks of recovery before returning to some social and work commitments.
  • The total “downtime” following facelift surgery will vary depending on the nature of the surgery.
  • Scar management is an integral part of the recovery process following any surgery to help scars mature and fade.

As a part of our commitment to the highest quality surgery and after-care, we provide a specialist scar management consultation with our in-house dermal therapist, who will recommend a treatment regimen that is tailored to your individual needs.

What is a Deep Plane Facelift?

A deep plane facelift is an advanced surgical technique that lifts and tightens the deeper layers of facial tissues to address sagging and excess skin, providing a more natural and long-lasting result compared to a traditional facelift.
Can Facelift Surgery Be Combined with Other Procedures?

Yes, facelift surgery can be combined with other facial rejuvenation surgeries such as neck lift surgery and eyelid surgery to achieve a more comprehensive rejuvenation of the face and neck.
What is a Mini Facelift?

A mini facelift is a less invasive version of the traditional facelift that targets loose skin and early signs of ageing, primarily in the lower face and upper neck. It involves smaller incisions and shorter recovery times.
What is Involved in a Neck Lift?

A neck lift, or anterior neck lift, focuses on tightening the skin and underlying muscles in the neck area to reduce the appearance of sagging and improve the contour of the neck and jawline.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek the opinion of an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
