There comes a time when we start to look older than we feel, and often the tell-tale signs of ageing will appear first on our faces
Let’s face it; the face is the one of the first parts of our body to show signs of ageing. Today, facial plastic surgery procedures allow you to look as young as you feel. As we age, our face is often the first place that shows our age by visible wrinkles, fine lines as the facial skin tends to sag. This can all be helped with the art of facial plastic surgery, which can help to turn back the hands of time.
The team at Camberwell Plastic Surgery offer a range of facial plastic surgeries to help restore and rejuvenate your facial profile. Whether you need a face-lift, neck lift, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, otoplasty or brow lift – our team can help you.
Undertaking complex facial surgery is not a decision that should be taken lightly; understanding the limitations of surgery, and what you can reasonably expect to achieve is an important part of successful treatment. When you talk with one of the team members at Camberwell Plastic surgery, we will listen to what your desired outcome is and how surgery can help you reach that goal.
Benefits of facial plastic surgery
Facial plastic surgery has many benefits for our clients and is generally sought to accomplish one of two main goals:
- To give the face a more youthful appearance
- Improve the shape and contour of facial features like the nose, eyes, cheeks, chin, brow, and ears
Our face-lift surgery is designed to address moderate to deep facial wrinkles. It also eliminates the more obvious signs of ageing like the sagging of facial skin. Face-lifts are suitable for men and woman who are concerned with deep wrinkles.
Eyelid Surgery (blepharoplasty)
Eyelid surgery or a blepharoplasty is a procedure that involves the removal of excess skin and fat around the eyes. This surgery is designed to rejuvenate the eye area and eliminate the ‘tired’ appearance of ageing eyes.
Eyelid surgery can also address more functional issues like extremely droopy eyelids, which can cause impaired vision.
Rhinoplasty, or nasal reshaping is an incredibly popular procedure that can help to create a harmonious look to your face by recontouring, and reshaping your nose. Plastic surgery can be performed on your nose for functional purposes i.e. to correct a deviated septum, or for aesthetic concerns to correct issues like a bump on the bridge or a ‘hooked’ nose.
Otoplasty (ear surgery)
Otoplasty, or ear surgery is the process in which surgeons pin your ears back to make them less noticeable. Patients as young as 5 can undergo this procedure, and typically children receive this surgery before their 10th birthday. It’s important to remember each case must be judged on its own merits. There is no one-size-fits-all answer.

A facelift describes a surgical procedure which rejuvenates the face and neck. It does not address the eyes and brows which require different procedures called blepharoplasty (eyelift) or browlift. A facelift improves not only the skin, but also the loose muscles and drooping fat in the face in order to last a long time and to look natural.
Some form of pain and discomfort should be expected after any type of surgery. Pain after a facelift can be managed by the medication your doctor will prescribe you as well as rest. If you follow your doctor’s instructions, your pain should be minimal and subside within a few weeks.
In general, the recovery time in roughly two weeks. Though the length of recovery will also be dependent on how large the incisions were during your procedure. The larger your incisions and the more dramatic your facelift, the longer your recovery time will be. Your doctor will be able to give you an accurate estimate based on your particular goals.
Although age 6 may sound young for an elective surgery, parents can opt for their kids to have the procedure when their kids are even younger. In fact, parents are increasingly addressing prominent ears in newborns. This is a highly individual matter and can be different for everyone.
Most patients will see the results immediately after the procedure. The final appearance may take several weeks due to swelling.
The good news is that there is very little swelling or pain after the surgery. It takes about a week and a half after the procedure for most of the swelling to subside, although the area will be sensitive for about three weeks. The pressure dressing is removed after five to seven days. Ears will often feel numb for two to three months after the surgery, with sensation returning slowly over that period.
