This cosmetic procedure is designed to reduce sagging in the lower face and neck and regain a more natural, rejuvenated appearance.

Who is this treatment suitable for?

The Apex Facelift® is suitable for women and men who choose to reverse the signs of ageing in a less invasive way. This procedure is developed for the patient that may not be sure about going under a general anaesthetic as it is performed under local which dramatically reduces the risks and eliminates the groggy disorientation associated with a traditional facelift.

A 15-minute consultation with Mr Coombes, Consultant plastic surgeon, can help you decide if you are the perfect candidate for The Apex Facelift®.

What does the treatment involve?

This procedure is commonly performed in conjunction to a blepharoplasty to open out the eyes and give a completely rejuvenated look.

The Apex Facelift® is designed to reduce sagging in the lower face and neck and regain a more natural, rejuvenated appearance. The procedure differs from a traditional facelift as you will experience minimal bruising and swelling for a significantly quicker recovery period.

A key benefit of The Apex Facelift® is that there is minimal scarring as the incisions are easily concealed within your natural facial contours and hairline. 

This procedure is developed for the patient that may not be sure about going under a general anaesthetic as it is performed under local which dramatically reduces the risks and eliminates the groggy disorientation associated with a traditional facelift.

With The Apex Facelift®, Mr Coombes' goal is to turn back the clock, firming up muscle tone, smoothing the skin, and restoring your attractive facial contour. Facelift surgery is not designed to make you look like someone else, but to make you look and feel years younger. In most cases, this procedure can be done within 60-90 minutes.

Preparing for surgery

  • Smoking should be stopped several weeks before your operation
  • Maintaining a healthy weight can help patients avoid further complications
  • Regular exercise can also help (but make sure you consult your GP first)
  • There should be no shaving or waxing of the area to be cut in the week leading up to the operation
  • Having a bath or shower on the day of the operation is a good idea.

How long is the recovery process?

You are able to go home and rest straight after your procedure. There may be minimal swelling, bruising, tenderness and most people feel comfortable getting back to work within a week. If you have had liposuction carried out as part of the neck lift procedure, the recovery process will normally take longer than average.

Making the right decision

So that you know exactly what to expect from the results of this surgery, we encourage you to share your expectations with your consultant as early as possible. This should help you to establish a clear indication of what is realistically achievable with this procedure.

We will never pressure you to make a decision. To give yourself time to decide what’s right for you, we recommend you leave at least 2 weeks between your consultation and booking your surgery.
