I am nearly 50 and want to look at having a face lift done. I have no idea what I need done and what a ball part figure is that I would expect to pay. Also recuperating times I am sick of my sagging skin and just want to get it done

    Dear Tracey,

    Thank you for your question and the image you have provided.

    You are at an ideal age to undergo facelift surgery with accompanying skin resurfacing treatments.
    The aim of the procedure is to obtain a harmonious and natural rejuvenation of the facial features which can be a highly rewarding and satisfying procedure for the right patient.
    Recovery time is usually 2-3 weeks and you will experience swelling and bruising to the surgical area. I ask my interstate patients to stay in Sydney for 2-3 weeks following surgery so that I can see them regularly for follow up appointments.

    If you would like any further information or prices for facelift surgery, please contact one of my friendly staff on 1300 368 107.

    Kind Regards

    Dr Tavakoli

    Good morning Tracey,
    I saw that your question has been answered well. If you prefer to have it done in Melbourne, I would love to look after you.Please see my facelift webpage for more information: https://rteixeira.com.au/facelift/
    In terms of cost, it varies significantly, depending on how much we decide to do, length of surgery and hospital admission. In general, it ranges from 18 - 22k for a SMAS lift and fat grafting.Kind regards,
