Asked on 24 April 2012


My last facelift wasn't a success and the cosmetic surgeon done some correction work which also failed.

It's been about 2 and half years since I had that facelift and a year and a half ago for the correction. The correction was like a one stitch lift on top of the SMAS facelift to try and lift the jowls but it made things worse. One jowl heavier than the other now and some loose skin underneath my chin it failed to work.

My correction was done under local anaesthesia, he made incisions halfway up my lobes then inserted a moncryl stitch to lift the SMAS layer then closed the ear lobes this was uncessful as well. It was a very poor lift well I didn't get any.

I would like a revision, I also previously had another facelift about 10 years ago to this one. So it would be my 3rd facelift I am not getting good results.

I love your pictures in the gallery of facelifts and their jawline, the angle, I would love something similar.

Would I have to wait for a certain length of time to get my revision done?


I would be delighted to see you in consultation, and analyse the problem as well as discuss possible solutions.

Corrective facelift surgery is a complex combination of changes, as you can see from the number of points that you have touched on in your message. It is possible to put them in a structured plan for change, and sometimes 3-D imaging facilitates the understanding of asymmetries, irregularities as well as target shape.
