Turn back the hands of Time with a Face Lift. Bangkok is the place to rejuvenate.

You have pep in your step.  You feel young and athletic but your face says you are older than you feel. To retard the signs of aging and make you look as young as you feel, consider investing in a face lift.  Bangkok physicians are highly trained in the latest techniques to make you look youthful again. 

A face lift, also known as Rhytidectomy, tightens sagging skin in the face and neck, smoothes creases at the mouth, levels creases along the nose and below the lower eyelids and can even eliminate the appearance of double chin.

Ideal Candidate

The ideal candidate for a face lift is typically beyond the age of 40 is showing signs of aging such as wrinkles and sagging skin.  It should be noted that an individual in his or her twenties may choose to have a facelift to remove fat deposits from the face. 

The candidate for a face lift should have relatively healthy skin that is not overexposed to tanning.  The individual should be confident in his or her choice to have a Rhytidectomy and should be a healthy non-smoker.  A healthy person is more aptly able to fight off infections should they occur.  Smokers are not good candidates for Rhytidectomy because smoking slows the healing process.

Initial Consultation

During the initial consultation for a facelift, Bangkok physicians will meet with the candidate to discuss the candidate’s expectations and desires.  The physician will evaluate the candidate, particularly the candidate’s skin, medical history, and tobacco usage.  The physician’s goal at this point is to determine if a face lift is a good choice for the individual.

Once the decision is made to get the face lift, Bangkok physicians will discuss the procedure with the individual.  The physician will take pictures of the individual and will measure the individual’s face.  Additionally, the physician will discuss the expected outcomes of the face lift procedure, and the type of anesthesia that will be used.  The individual will also be advised of any potential risks and complications.

The Procedure

Before performing a face lift, Bangkok physicians determine whether a local anesthesia should be administered or if intravenous sedation should be used.  The physician makes an incision that circles the face at the hairline, comes around the front of the ear, circles behind the ear and ends in the hairline.  Sagging tissue and muscle is tightened and the skin is repositioned over the newly tightened muscles and skin.  The extra skin is removed.  Adhesives or stitches are used to close the incision.

Recovery Period

Despite the fact that a face lift is a long surgery lasting as long as two to three hours, there is relatively very little pain after the surgery.  The patient will have some swelling and bandages are often wrapped loosely to minimize the swelling.  After a few days the swelling will be gone and bruises disappear within fourteen days.  The patient can expect to feel some tightness which will resolve over a few weeks.


All surgeries incur risks.  Some of the possible risks could be infections, and a collection of blood under the skin.  The patient can rest assured that when performing face lifts, Bangkok physicians exercise extreme caution and work to minimize or eliminate risks.
