The Differences Among Facial Lifting Procedures

When you go to a plastic surgeon to enhance the appearance of your face, there are different options that need to be considered. In fact, when you go in for a facelift, you are really looking at different kinds of targeted facial lift options that can be performed. The team at our Sydney plastic surgery practice would like to take the next few minutes to cover the different kinds of facial lift surgeries and just what they can accomplish for a patient.


The facelift is the facial lift surgery that targets the middle section of the face. During a Sydney facelift, your surgeon will remove excess skin and tissue in order to tighten the facial skin and reduce lines and wrinkles around the eyes. The facelift can be retargeted as needed to also address issues with the cheeks and jowls.

Eyelift (Blepharoplasty)

The skin of the upper eyelids is susceptible to sagging and drooping, which may leave people looking haggard and prematurely old. The sagging skin may even block part of a persons vision. The eyelift surgery is performed to remove this excess skin and restore a more youthful and energetic appearance.

Neck Lift

The skin of the neck area can droop or sag with age or after pronounced weight loss. This leaves some people with unappealing loose skin. The neck lift surgery is performed to help remove that excess skin and make a more appealing neck contour and appearance.

The best part about the facial lift surgeries that are mentioned above is that they can be performed on their own or in combination with each other in order to achieve a complete enhancement of the face. If you would like more information on these and other facial plastic surgery options, be sure to contact our Sydney cosmetic surgery practice for an appointment.
