The honest truth about facelifts

Walk me through the
"Three Step Rejuvenation Plan"

Step 1. Structure

The Concept™ Facelift has been developed exclusively by Bella Vou. It rejuvenates the face by tightening the skin and underlying muscle in a way that looks naturally sculpted and refreshed rather than tight and mask-like (the ‘wind-tunnel look’). Our procedure is far less invasive than traditional facelifts and is performed under local anaesthetic, offering a quicker recovery, reduced bruising, and less downtime, so that you can get on with your life.

Step 2. Re-volumising (Fat Transfer)

The process of ageing naturally causes fat pads under the skin to decrease or shift position. These changes, together with increased skin laxity, result in lines and wrinkles, all adding to the signs of ageing. Once the facelift has been performed and skin and muscle have been tightened, fat that has been harvested from another part of the face or body can be reintroduced to areas that have become sunken or hollow, even accentuating areas like the cheeks to augment the contouring work already done by the facelift. 

Step 3. Skin Quality

Once the skin has been tightened and sculpted and the face has been re-volumized, we can address the final signs of ageing by improving the overall quality of the skin. The treatments used (more detail below) smooth and plump the skin while making it look brighter and more youthful. This plumping action also helps reduce finer lines and wrinkles that the facelift cannot address. In cases of prolonged sun exposure, additional laser resurfacing treatments would be used to further improve the quality and texture of the skin.

Treatment Plans

Facelift: The Concept™ Facelift MINI

Facelift: The Mini Facelift is usually performed under local anaesthetic, although sedation and general anaesthesia are also available. It is a day case procedure, so you won’t need to stay in the hospital overnight.

The surgeon will make short incisions from just in front of the top of the ear and then trace the natural skin folds inside the ear that then loops under the earlobe to behind the ear. Because the incision is placed in these natural skin folds and creases, the scar is very discreet and not easily seen, and does not cause hair loss. The surgeon performs SMAS-platysma lift, to tighten the muscles of the face and neck and to provide natural-looking, long-lasting more youthful results.

Once the muscles have been tightened the excess skin is removed. The surgeon uses fine dissolvable sutures that the body will naturally absorb over the course of a few weeks to leave a fine white scar that will continue to fade as it matures.

The Concept™ Facelift is usually performed under local anaesthetic, although sedation and general anaesthesia are also available. It is a day case procedure, so you won’t need to stay in the hospital overnight.

As well as the facelift, your surgeon would also use some or all of the following techniques (below) to get you the best possible result.

The surgeon may make a further tiny incision just under the chin. Through this, they will remove excess fat using VASER Liposculpting to further define the jawline and remove any excess volume from the chin and neck to leave a beautifully contoured neckline.

TREATMENT OVERVIEW

Busy modern lifestyles leave little time for slow, painful and lengthy recoveries. Our Facelift procedures are much less invasive than traditional facelift surgeries, which cause significant facial trauma, making it difficult to work and socialise for up to eight weeks. 

You will have little bruising, swelling, or scarring following a Facelift or Deep Plane Facelift. Most people can return to their normal routine within a matter of days. However, it’s important to remember that although your outward appearance will look healthy and healed, it will still take six to eight weeks to fully recover, internally.

Most of Bella Vou's patients find the experience relaxing and stress-free. We are  meticulous about making sure the area is completely numb, and we chat throughout the procedure so that each individual is confident that they are in safe hands. 

‘As a surgeon, it helps me get to know my patients even better and builds a bond with them, which isn't possible with a general anaesthetic. But don’t just take my word for it, look at videos of real patient experiences on the website, our patients really are Bella Vou’s best adverts.’ - Amir Nakhdjevani, Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Bella Vou

YOUR SIMPLE
5 STEP
JOURNEY

YOUR SIMPLE 5 STEP JOURNEY

Step 1. Free, no-obligation consultation

Bella Vou offers every client a free consultation with an expert, accredited cosmetic surgeon with no obligation to proceed to treatment. The consultation is an opportunity to discuss any concerns you have with your skin and your appearance, the results you want to achieve, and whether the Concept™ Facelift can help you reach those goals.

Bella Vou will always give you an honest and impartial professional opinion. Mr Amir Nakhdjevani says:

‘We make sure that we advise people correctly about whether surgery is right for them. We treat everyone as if they were our family. We might turn people away, suggest alternative treatments, or we may suggest that they go to a different specialist at another establishment. If someone is uncertain about an operation, we're happy to see them several times, without a consultation charge. At Bella Vou, we never pressurise people or try to sell procedures. It's always about giving an honest opinion and honest advice.’

Step 2. Meet your specialist

During your consultation with the specialist who will perform your Concept™ Facelift, you are given a chance to find out more about the procedure and ask any questions you like.

Step 3. Preparation for Concept™ Facelift

Preparation for your procedure can help reduce the risk of infection and improve recovery. Shower and wash hair daily and stop smoking cigarettes and e-cigarettes to reduce the risk of healing complications.

On the day of your Concept™ Facelift, you’ll be personally welcomed to Bella Vou, given a gown to wear and escorted to the state-of-the-art operating theatre. As you will be awake throughout the surgery, you will be greeted by your surgeon, and you can even choose the music you would like to hear during your operation.

All your additional treatments will also be booked prior to your surgery at times that are most convenient for you.

Step 4. What happens during Concept™ Facelift?

In the Bella Vou theatre, your surgeon will chat with you throughout the procedure. It makes the experience relaxed, stress-free, and helps develop a close bond between you and your consultant. Your face will be cleaned, and local anaesthetic injected to prevent any pain or discomfort.

Concept™ Facelift MINI

A short incision will be made from the front of the ear to behind the ear, resulting in a smaller scar and less hair loss than traditional techniques. The surgeon will carefully tighten the skin, remove any excess, and perform a muscle tightening SMAS lift. The procedure will smooth the skin of the cheeks, lift them to their original position and remove jowls to restore definition to the jawline.

Your surgeon will stitch the skin closed with fine, absorbable sutures that do not need to be removed. The procedure lasts about two hours.

Concept™ Facelift 

A short incision will be made from the mid-temple to the front of the ear, along the skin fold and behind the ear, resulting in a smaller scar and less hair loss than traditional techniques. The surgeon will carefully tighten the skin, remove any excess, and perform a muscle tightening SMAS lift. The procedure will smooth the skin of the cheeks, lift them to their original position and remove jowls to restore definition to the jawline.

Your surgeon will stitch the skin closed with fine, absorbable sutures that do not need to be removed. The procedure lasts about two hours.

Buccal Fat Removal

The specialist surgeon would remove the buccal fat pads from each cheek hollow through a small incision that runs along the gum line inside the mouth, thus leaving no visible scarring while results are instantly noticeable. It is advisable that you eat soft food for the week following Buccal Fat Removal surgery to ensure that you do not disturb the sutures. 

Re-volumizing 

Re-volumizing through fat transfer will be carried out after the facelift has been completed. Fat is harvested from below the chin or the stomach region and after it has been conditioned it is injected into the areas that need volumizing, usually to restore plumpness to sunken cheeks, fill hollowness under the eyes, accentuate the cheekbones, fill hollowness in the temples, lift the brows, plump forehead, reshape the chin, fill nasolabial folds and fill marionette lines.

VASER Liposculpting (as part of the Concept Facelift):

A tiny incision just under the chin is all that’s required to accommodate the VASER probe which is no bigger than a knitting needle. VASERlipo™ can precisely target and remove areas of fat under the chin to help smooth and shape the jawline in conjunction with the facelift. This extracted fat can also be used for Re-volumizing the rest of the face. 

FaceTite™:

The specialist cosmetic doctors use FaceTite™ to apply controlled radiofrequency energy under the skin. The energy gently, safely and effectively heats the underlying tissue making the skin tighten and contract. The FaceTite probe is inserted below the skin through tiny “punctures” made at the back of either side of the jaw. Once complete these puncture sites do not even require a stitch, instead two small plasters will be used to keep the areas sterile.

Step 5. Recovery from Concept™ Facelift?

After the operation, you can relax in the comfort of Bella Vou's recovery suites. The supportive staff will offer you a drink and biscuits after surgery and explain your aftercare and what to expect as you recover.

You'll be able to go home the same day with no drains, drips, or bandages. However, you may choose to wear a scarf for discretion. It's essential to arrange a friend or family member to pick you up and escort you home.

One of the Bella Vou team will give you a call the day after surgery to make sure you're well, have had a good night, and to answer any questions.

After one week, you should have follow-up with our nurse and wound care specialist. You will also have your first of two Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) massages which will assist with reducing any swelling and pain while removing build-up of fluids or toxins. These MLD sessions will dramatically improve recovery. At one week you will also have your first of 3 Morpheus 8 treatments which will kick off the process of stimulating the production of collagen and elastin to plump as well as improve the texture and radiance of the skin. Each follow-on Morpheus 8 session will be booked 6 to 8 weeks apart.

At around six weeks, your surgeon will check your progress, and you will have a second MLD session at this point. At six months the nurse and wound care specialist will see you again to ensure that you remain healthy, well, and happy with your results. However, if you're worried, the staff are always on hand to answer questions on the phone or in person.
