If you are concerned about the effects gravity and ageing have had on your face, then you may be interested in investigating what might be achievable with facelift surgery from Elanic in Glasgow. Let our skilled plastic surgeons turn back the clock and help you look the way you feel inside.
With age, skin loses its elasticity and tends to become slack and tired-looking. Lines appear around the eyes, forehead and lips, accompanied by grooves on the cheeks and folds on the neck. A facelift can improve all of these problems, allowing you to enjoy a more youthful appearance that’s full of vitality.
What does a facelift involve?
People differ in the way they age. Some have more pronounced cheek folds, others more obvious jowls and some have lots of loose skin on their necks. Different types of facelifts can be used to combat all of these different problems with a great degree of success. By examining you and discussing your desires we will be able to let you know your options and plan treatment just for you.
Alternatives to a surgical facelift include the 1 stitch facelift, laser resurfacing and facial peels and the very latest Precision Tx sub dermal laser. With these less invasive procedures you will benefit from less downtime and a quicker recovery but the results are not as long lasting.
The Precision Tx laser is a new technique using a laser passed under the skin which targets the lowest layer of the skin, causing it to tighten and lift the skin. The technique requires only local anaesthetic and takes less than an hour to complete. The impressive results continue to improve for up to six months.

Vectra 3D SimulationAt Elanic we use Vectra 3D photography and simulation software to give you an idea of how you can look after your procedure. Although not a guarantee of a result, it allows the surgeon to demonstrate the effects of different types of facelift and how you would look by combining your lift with laser resurfacing, fat or filler injections and eyelid surgery. By using this device it allows clients to visualise the effects of these different procedures and forms an excellent method of cummunication between surgeon and client.
