Due to the breakdown of collagen as we age, our skin starts to become less elastic. The deep anatomical structures of the face also start to alter. These include the cheek muscles, the muscles surrounding the eyes, the cheek fat, and the cheek muscles. Many people look older than they feel because of the effects of all these factors working together to cause wrinkling and sagging in the face and neck. A facelift may be the best cosmetic operation for you if you are concerned about the ageing effects on your face.

The best alternatives for achieving your facial rejuvenation goals will be discussed after Dr. Manwani assesses the kind and shape of your face.

Rhytidectomy recovery. normally lasts between two and four weeks. Patients can anticipate going back to work after about 10 days, and can progressively resume exercise and more rigorous activities over the course of six weeks. Over the course of six months, the final effects will emerge as the scars form and the swelling keeps subsiding.


Swelling, bruising, numbness, and a tightening sensation are typical adverse effects. Most of these mild to severe adverse effects go away throughout the first two weeks of recovery. For two weeks prior to and two weeks following the procedure, blood thinners should be avoided in order to reduce excessive bleeding and other potential problems. For the first one to two weeks, patients must sleep with their heads raised to reduce swelling and speed recovery. As swelling goes down and incision lines disappear over several months, the results will keep getting better.



Choosing a surgeon with extensive proficiency in the field and multifaceted training is crucial to having a pleasant and rewarding surgical experience. As a pioneer in the field of plastic surgery, Dr. Manwani treats every facelift procedure with artistic rigour and considerate care, ensuring that patients receive the best possible cosmetic outcomes.


Your age, skin type, and the type of surgery you have can all affect the results of your procedure. While some patients have their results for upwards of ten years, most patients enjoy their outcomes for four to six years on average. During a first session where we assess your needs and problems, we will go over the kind of results you can anticipate.

We put in a lot of effort to make sure your scars may be readily concealed among the folds of skin that naturally surround your ears and in your hairline. In order to ensure that you may enjoy your results without worrying about apparent scarring, modern facelift and neck lift techniques allow for minimised scars that are difficult to spot even to the experienced eye. Although cosmetics can be used to readily conceal scars within the first month following the treatment, scars typically take around a year to fully form. After one to two months of healing, the majority of patients discover that their scars are largely undetectable even without makeup.

Rhytidectomy can treat forehead wrinkles, sunken cheeks, deep lines around the lips and nose, and drooping jowls. A variety of problem regions on the face can be treated simultaneously with additional operations like brow lifts or blepharoplasty. During your initial consultation, we will go through each of your issues with you in order to create a complete cosmetic plan that will satisfy you for years to come.

One to two weeks after their treatment, the majority of patients resume their jobs. The typical absence from work is ten days, however this can change depending on the patient’s age and how soon any obvious side effects subside. To guarantee that your body gets the rest it needs, you should devote at least one week to healing.

Absolutely. Although most plastic surgery is performed on women, men should also feel confident in their appearance. Men can benefit from a facelift or neck lift to restore shape to their jawline and get rid of any unwelcome ageing symptoms. In a one-on-one session, we can go over your worries with you and go over how these procedures can help people of any gender.

Although there is no set age for a facelift or neck lift, middle-aged men and women in their 40s to 60s seem to be the greatest candidates. Around this time, many people start to become interested in cosmetic surgery as the first visible signs of ageing start to appear in your 30s and get more evident in your 40s. Generally speaking, younger people are better able to recover fast after a surgical operation such a rhytidectomy and benefit most from it, albeit positive outcomes and a secure recovery are not age-specific.

Each patient’s level of edoema and bruising after surgery is different, but you can anticipate experiencing symptoms for the first few weeks. While some patients’ adverse effects disappear rapidly, others may continue to have bruising or swelling even after a careful recovery. The majority of individuals’ most prominent adverse effects will subside three weeks after the treatment.
