Dr. Jamil Al Jamali: Facelift (Rhytidectomy)


Gain a youthful appearance with a facelift procedure performed by our renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Jamil Al Jamali. A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to reduce visible signs of aging by tightening and lifting the skin and soft tissues of your face.


What is a Facelift (Rhytidectomy)?

A facelift is an operation aimed at restoring a more youthful appearance to your face by tightening the skin and soft tissues. This smoother and tighter look is achieved through various techniques, such as SMAS facelift, MACS facelift, Mid-facelift or a Mini facelift, which are chosen based on the specific needs of the patient.

What happens during Facelift (Rhytidectomy) surgery?

The facelift surgery, typically performed under general anaesthetic, involves making precise incisions on both sides of the face, lifting and tightening the skin and tissues. The specific techniques applied like SMAS facelift, MACS facelift or Mid-facelift vary based on the area being lifted, ensuring a more tailored approach to each patient’s individual needs. For those desiring less invasive procedures, a mini facelift can be performed which has a shorter recovery time but also offers significant improvements in the appearance of aging.

Going home after Facelift (Rhytidectomy) surgery

After your facelift surgery, some swelling and bruising are to be expected. Recovery guidelines include sleeping upright for the first few days and carefully managing the incision areas. Stitches are typically removed after 10 to 14 days. Over the next 6 to 9 months, the full effects of the surgery become apparent, revealing a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

Specific complications following Facelift (Rhytidectomy)

Complications are rare but can include loss of skin or hair, blood collections under the skin, pale or dark facial areas, damage to the facial nerve, and cosmetic problems. All these risks will be discussed with you in detail by Dr. Al Jamali before the procedure.
