According to the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), the number of women getting facelifts in the UK rose by 9% in 2018. This is the second-biggest increase in elective cosmetic procedures after liposuction. The increase is down to a number of things, including how open many celebrities now are about their own cosmetic surgery.

It’s no wonder, then, that many women are choosing to improve their appearance through face lifts. As with every surgery, however, there are risks. Therefore, those looking at face lift surgery Liverpool need to make sure they choose a surgeon with the skills, experience, and qualifications to make the procedure a success.

What is a face lift?

Also known as a rhytidectomy, face lift surgery lifts and pulls back flabby or saggy skin, mainly around the jowl and neckline. As a result, the face looks tighter and smoother. In addition, many people look younger and less tired. There are different types of face lifts, including mini face lifts and full face lifts. Your surgeon can help you understand what is best for you.

What should you look for in a surgeon?

Potential patients should look at a surgeon’s qualifications and professional registrations. General Medical Council (GMC) and BAAPS registration are essential. In addition, they should keep their skills up to date through continuous professional development. Finally, look at how long they have been practising. The more experience they have, the better.
