Looking at Dr Doyle’s before and after pictures you will realise there is no need to worry about that forced pulled back “plastic” look that used to characterise a facelift. With modern techniques and over 20 years of experience as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr Doyle will work closely with you to ensure you receive the results which best suit you.
Why get a facelift?
A facelift restores the contour of your face and neck to produce a more pleasing, youthful appearance. Depending on the person’s needs, this can be done alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a forehead/ brow lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping.
At Gold Coast Plastic Surgery, our facelift patients often tell us their family and friends say they look like they are refreshed, revived and have been on a great holiday!
The facelift procedure
To perform a face lift, incisions are made along the hairline, by the ear, and along the earlobe. The excess skin is then divided and lifted to allow the underlying tissues to be tightened. All remaining skin can then be tightened, and secured with sutures producing a smoother younger appearance. This is the only way to achieve this after we age.
Skin elasticity changes, fatty tissue decreases in volume and density causing the face to sag and hang loosely. Skin folds become more prominent under the chin, upper neck and corners of the mouth due to gravity and changes in bony facial structure and muscle action. At Gold Coast Plastic Surgery, Dr Doyle can help you turn back the clock on your appearance.
