In the last few years, the number of women having face lifts in the UK has risen by 9%. The figure is likely to rise further. In part, this is down to celebrities being more open about their own cosmetic procedures. Surgical advances, however, have also played a part.  For those considering face lift surgery Bolton, here’s what you need to know.

Face Lift Surgery – What You Need To Know

Face lift surgery pulls back and lifts skin on the face. As a result, it’s tighter and smoother, and people tend to look younger and less tired. Thanks to advances in surgical procedures, different types of face lifts are available.

Traditional face lifts involve incisions along the hairline and behind the ears. Afterwards, the surgeon bandages the face.  These need to stay on for a few days. A MACS face lift is less invasive and has a shorter recovery time. It involves smaller incisions and is sometimes referred to as a mini-facelift. To know what the best surgery for you is, speak to your consultant.
