Face Lift Surgery Claims

As a highly invasive treatment face lift surgery recovery time can vary depending on the individual however in cases where complications have occurred the recovery time can go on for much longer than necessary.

If your surgery did not go as planned due to the negligence of your surgeon you will be entitled to make a face lift surgery claim.

What is Face Lift Surgery?

Face lift surgery, known medically as rhytidectomy, is more commonly carried out on people over 40 whose skin has lost some of its elasticity leading to sagging.

Ageing is inevitable, but genetics, diet and lifestyle all play a part in how rapidly we age however face lift surgery promises a fix to ageing skin.

A face lift is an invasive and serious surgical procedure carried out under general anaesthetic.

Incisions are discreetly made around the hairline for the skin to then be cut and lifted before being sutured back together. Patients will experience bruising and swelling after surgery and will need to keep their head in an upright position, avoiding bending, lifting or sudden movements.

Recovery time varies with each person however a few weeks off work is normal until the swelling goes down. The outcome of a face lift is permanent and a person will not have aged in the same way they would have prior to the surgery.

Common complications with Face Lift Surgery

As with any surgery there are inherent risks, which should always be thoroughly discussed with the patient beforehand.

Some of the things that could go wrong with your surgery include:

  • Allergic reaction to anaesthetic
  • Asymmetry
  • Blood collecting under the skin (haematoma)
  • Blood clots
  • Nerve damage
  • Facial paralysis
  • Infection
  • Unnecessary scarring
