Do you want to feel younger and more rejuvenated? A facelift could be the answer to your troubles.

Every year, thousands of people in the UK undergo this type of cosmetic procedure to drastically decrease the appearance of wrinkles, zap away saggy skin, and instantly regain their confidence. But with so many different types of facelifts out there, which one is right for you?

Here, we’ll explore the different types of facelift surgery and their benefits.

Full Brow Facelift

Also referred to as the forehead lift, a full brow facelift can dramatically diminish the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and creases along your forehead for a softer, supple look. During the procedure, tiny incisions are made on both sides of your scalp to tighten the skin.

This will instantly take years off of your appearance and raise your eyebrow area for a fresh-faced look.

Temporal Brow Facelift

If you don’t want to commit to getting a full brow facelift procedure, a temporal brow lift may be the perfect solution for you. The surgeon will make small incisions on either side of your face to tighten and pull the saggy skin toward your temples.

Much less invasive than a full brow facelift, a temporal brow lift has a quicker recovery time and is great for patients seeking a quick way to get rid of wrinkles and loose skin.

Eyelid Lift

Also called blepharoplasty, an eyelid lift removes the excess skin around your upper lids to get rid of under-eye “bags.” You can opt for one or both eyes to be done.

As you age, the thin skin around your eyes can lose its elasticity, creating puffiness and dark circles. Not only does this cause you to look older, but it can also impede your vision. An eyelid lift will help you see better and look more awakened.

Mid-Face Lift

During a mid-face lift, the surgeon will make two tiny incisions under your lower lashes. This cosmetic procedure can tighten and smooth your eye area, but also lift and define your cheeks. For patients who are displeased with their wrinkles and saggy skin on the middle regions of their face, a mid-face lift can work wonders.

Neck Lift

A neck lift, also referred to as rhytidectomy, will give your neck a more youthful, chiselled look by removing the fatty tissue and saggy skin that can lead to jowls.

Mouth Corner Facelift

As you get older, the corners of your mouth can sag or droop, giving you a permanent frown. A mouth corner facelift will reduce sagging lips for a firm, youthful appearance. While there are a number of different varieties of this type of procedure, all involve small incisions being done where your lips meet.
