A facelift, technically known as rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to create a more youthful appearance by reducing wrinkles and creases and generally tightening skin on the face and/or neck.
The reasons for undergoing a face-lift are unique to each individual, but the operation is favoured by older patients because it can make people appear younger.
In recent times the operation has become more popular and last year it was the fourth most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the UK, with almost 5,000 people undergoing such surgery.
Potential complications of the operation can arise due to facelift surgery negligence. We have dealt with examples of facelift surgery gone wrong where facelift surgery claims needed to be made.

Facelift Surgery Is an Invasive Procedure
Facelift surgery is normally carried out under general anaesthetic and usually takes up to six hours depending on the procedure undertaken. During a facelift operation a surgical cut is made in the hairline, down past the front of the ears and then up into the hairline again behind the ears. The skin is then separated from the underlying tissues with excess fat removed or repositioned and the skin pulled back trimming off any excess. Permanent stitches are sometimes left under the skin to keep deep tissues lifted in position.
Facelift surgery claims resulting from complications of this operation can occur as rhytidectomy is a particularly invasive procedure.
