So what about a Facelift?

A Surgical Facelift lifts and tightens facial skin. It makes the skin smoother and more youthful. This procedure is beneficial in addressing sagging skin on the face and neck.

For instance, Judy Murray is the mother of the renowned UK tennis player. She had a facelift to fix her drooping neck and skin pigmentation.

However, it’s important to note the following: A Surgical Facelift is a procedure that requires significant recovery time. It also carries risks associated with anaesthesia. It is widely recognized for making individuals appear ten years younger on average.

The popularity of surgical alternatives is increasing because of their shorter recovery time. There are distinct differences when comparing a surgical facelift with a surgical one.

A nonsurgical facelift utilizes fillers, threads, and lasers, while a surgical facelift involves making an incision during the procedure. Nonsurgical facelifts combine noninvasive or minimally invasive techniques to enhance one’s appearance. Some notable features include: This process is quick and does not require measures, allowing individuals to return to work daily. Key elements involve applying fillers for a lifted profile, enhancing the jawline, rejuvenating under-eye areas, and more.

The results are natural-looking and harmonious as they restore one’s appearance with subtleties. In contrast, a surgical facelift entails re-draping and removing sagging skin. Noteworthy aspects include the following: It provides a transformative anti-ageing outcome that lasts longer.

The recovery period typically requires one week from work. It is often recommended to prevent ageing effects or maintain results obtained from a surgical facelift procedure. A non-surgical facelift carries risks, but it requires less downtime compared to its surgical counterpart.

Ultimately, opting for a surgical facelift is a safer alternative than pursuing a surgical one. Non-surgical facelifts offer an approach which means you won’t have to undergo general anaesthesia or be hospitalized.

The absence of incisions dramatically reduces the risk of complications. Additionally, the healing process is quicker, with surgical facelifts allowing you to return to work sooner. This option is especially suitable if you’re in your 30s or 40s and starting to notice signs of ageing.

While each treatment may not deliver results over time, they. Produce a noticeable effect. Surgical facelifts can still be beneficial for symptoms of ageing, but non-surgical treatments can complement their products. Especially if you follow up with skin care products later on.

Keep in mind that every case is unique. It’s always important to consult with a specialist for a treatment plan.

A key advantage of surgical facelifts is that they result in less noticeable scarring than traditional ones. These procedures’ subtlety lies in avoiding incisions, which often leads to scarring in approaches.

This significant difference can be attributed to two factors. First, there is no risk of scars forming without incisions during the process. Second, since no incisions are involved, the likelihood of complications, like infection or abnormal scar formation, decreases significantly.

Non-surgical facelifts offer benefits compared to procedures. They are performed over sessions, ensuring more controlled results. For example, you may require treatment sessions, but unlike traditional surgery, they won’t leave any scars.

In the realm of facial rejuvenation, less is often more. Opting for a surgical facelift means experiencing less pain and discomfort compared to a surgical facelift. It is an alternative for minimizing pain and chemical peels while still achieving the desired lift. Let’s delve into why non-surgical facelifts are a painful option;

  1. No General Anesthesia: Unlike facelifts, surgical procedures don’t require anaesthesia. This brings advantages regarding comfort and protecting your skin since you avoid the risks and recovery time associated with anaesthesia.
  2. Minimal or No Incisions: Surgical facelifts are noninvasive procedures that eliminate the need for incisions, reducing pain, risk and healing time. According to research data, your skin remains untouched by instruments, resulting in reduced discomfort.

Consider these factors. A non-surgical facelift is for people who want rejuvenation with little pain. It lets them avoid the intensity of traditional surgery.

Unlike a facelift, which may must a week off, a non-surgical facelift has a quick recovery. It lets you get back to your routine almost immediately.

A non-surgical facelift provides more results compared to its surgical counterpart. Considering a facelift? It’s worth considering the option of a non-surgical facelift. Not is it cheaper than undergoing surgery? There are also more financial benefits;

You avoid incurring expenses related to anaesthesia and overnight hospital stays required for surgical facelift procedures.

The recovery process is faster, allowing you to save work downtime. Non-surgical facelifts provide the advantage of cumulative outcomes, which can be more cost-effective. You have the flexibility to space out treatments according to your budget.

A non-surgical facelift offers an invasive and affordable approach to refreshing one’s appearance. It utilizes techniques that are less invasive compared to facelifts. What sets surgical facelifts apart is their use of minimally invasive or noninvasive methods that avoid extensive incisions, general anaesthesia and overnight stays. These procedures cause discomfort.

Allow for quicker recovery times to get back to your routine sooner. Moreover, non-surgical facelifts come with a risk of complications due to the absence of incisions. An extensive procedure involves multiple minor treatments spread over time for safer and more effective results.

Compared to a facelift, it may be more suitable for patients. Why is a non-surgical facelift such a choice? Well, let’s dive into the details;

No need for anaesthesia. You can avoid the risks of general anaesthesia. You can stay comfortable during the procedure.

Minimal downtime! Instead of taking significant time off from work or personal activities, you can go back to your routine right away!

The changes will be subtle. They will look natural, not dramatic. They will give you a glow that enhances your appearance.

Now, let’s talk about who would be a candidate for a facelift. Typically, individuals who notice wrinkles or excessive skin laxity are candidates for this procedure. It is especially beneficial for those seeking a long-lasting solution to combat signs of ageing. Here are some key points to consider;

  1. Age: If you’re above 40 years old, you might be a candidate.
  2. Comfort with invasiveness: It’s essential to be comfortable with this procedure being invasive.
  3. Wrinkles and sagging skin? A facelift could help if you have them.
  4. This procedure has permanent anti-ageing effects. It could be good if you want long-term results without needing maintenance.
  5. Recovery will take time. You must also understand the risks of any surgery.

But, it is crucial to ask a doctor. They can assess your needs and decide if a facelift is right.

If I could give ten stars I would. From my very first email communications and consultation with Dr Hamedeh through to the surgery itself every step in this process has been faultless. I had always been too frightened to go down the cosmetic surgery route, but after seeing Dr Hamadeh's work I decided to do something I have always wanted to. I didn't research other surgeons, and after speaking with some of his previous patients who spoke so highly of him I knew he was right for me. I was provided with all the information I needed in a timely manner in preparation for the surgery, and on the day of surgery I was immediately put at ease by Dr Hamadeh, the wonderful anaesthetist and Nurse Kelly. Post operation I have had the amazing support of Nurse Kelly - it is so reassuring to have her on the other end of the phone for regular check-ins and she has been incredibly kind &supportive in this journey. And the actual result? More amazing than I could ever have imagined or hoped for, Dr Hamedeh has given me a beautiful, natural looking nose and I couldn't be happier. Life changing. Thank you so much!

Dr Hamadeh was highly recommended to me and so was my first choice of meeting with a surgeon to discuss my plans of rhinoplasty. My first consultation had me feeling very comfortable, not rushed and I appreciated he’s calm mannerism. I knew from then he was the surgeon I wanted and after a second consultation I was excited to plan my rhinoplasty.I have received amazing support from Manuela and Nurse Kelly from the very start- They are a real credit to he’s team. I can’t say enough how amazing Nurse Kelly has been with me, she goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and I wouldn’t have had the experience I have received if it wasn’t for her. Im looking forward to seeing the developments with my nose over the course of weeks and getting back to fitness of which I will be taking Kelly through some core exercises!!

Rhinoplasty post op day 11 - I just wanted to say I cannot recommend Dr Hamadeh and his team enough, the care I have received from himself and also his team has been amazing all the way through from the beginning from my first initial consultation all the way up to now. I have always suffered with my self confidence and for as long as I remember I’ve always wanted to go ahead with rhinoplasty. I felt like Dr Hamadeh could achieve what I wanted most, I wanted something very natural and a nose that complimented my facial features. From the first consultation he told me all the potential risks & complications and listened to what I I liked and disliked. He sent me away to think about everything and I did not feel pressured once. 4 months after my consultation and a lot of thinking i decided to book. I only got my cast off yesterday and so far I am so pleased with my new nose, I am quite swollen however I know it’s all apart of the process and I expected that. I can’t wait for this exciting journey, I can already tell it is exactly how I wanted it & that it compliments my face so much.On the day of surgery I was a little nervous as I wasn’t allowed anyone with me however Kelly the nurse was so lovely to me and made me feel so comfortable. I had around a 2 hour wait until surgery and she sat with me most of the time I was waiting and just spoke to me she made me feel so at ease. Kelly was also alongside me right up until surgery until I woke up and I did not feel any pain or discomfort through the entire process. Every other day after surgery she would check up on me and would help with any questions I had or if I needed help with anything her advice was so good! She is honestly amazing at her job and she made my recovery run so smoothly.

I had a rhinoplasty at Burcot Hall with Dr Hamadeh in Jan 2022. I was left devastated and ended up having a revision with another surgeon 18months later. Dr Hamadeh and Kelly were very nice and the process went smoothly but the result was terrible. I ended up with severe asymmetry, an obstructed right nostril and chronic pain in the tip of my nose. I understand that rhinoplasty is a risk and results may vary but I can say with confidence that I believe I would have had a better result with a different surgeon.

I had a rhinoplasty with Dr Hamadeh a month ago and I am so beyond happy with my result! The surgery and recovery were so much easier than I ever expected, I had no pain, minimal swelling and bruising and Kelly was checking in regularly to make sure everything was going well! Despite only being a month post op and still being swollen I am so happy with my nose, it is exactly what I wanted. I will never be able to thank Dr Hamadeh and Kelly enough!

I underwent septoplasty and rhinoplasty with Dr. Hamadeh, and the entire experience has been incredibly smooth so far. Nurse Kelly deserves special mention for being a true star throughout the process. Her unwavering support, assistance, and reassurance have been invaluable. She consistently goes above and beyond, making the journey exceptionally positive.

For me getting a rhinoplasty was always something I knew I wanted to do, but never knew where to start. I did so much research on so many surgeons which I did find really daunting as I’ve never had any form of surgery before and didn’t really know what I should/shouldn’t be looking for. I then came across Dr Hamadeh and from looking through his Instagram, website, real self/Google reviews, I was really impressed with his work. I watched numerous videos from Dr Hamadehs patients on YouTube & TikTok etc, and decided I wanted to book my consultation. My consultation was full of information, and most importantly I was made aware of the risks associated with the surgery and what would be realistically achievable with my nose, which I think was so important as I knew what I should & shouldn’t expect going into the surgeryI booked my surgery date with Dr Hamadeh, but then had to move this due to some personal circumstances. Elizabeth was really helpful with getting this changed and rearrangedMy surgery date & location did change a few times from where I originally booked, which did give me concerns (again as I’d never had any private surgery before so I didn’t know if this was normal) but I’m really glad I stuck with Dr Hamadeh as my results speak for them self - If you’re having any kind of doubt like this because you don’t know what to expect, I can say from my experience there is no need to worry at allMy surgery date arrived and i was admitted to Harley street, London. The staff were lovely and helped me get into my surgery clothes whilst doing necessary tests. Dr Hamadeh saw me before the surgery to take pictures and also took a picture of the morph on my phone, so he knew what I was aiming for. I was really nervous but Nurse Kelly was amazing - she sat with me for an hour before i was due to go into surgery and held my hand whilst I was on the table waiting for the Anaesthesia to kick in- I felt like I was fast asleep within 10 secondsWhen I woke up, I wasn’t in any pain - the staff kindly placed cool glasses over my eyes and brought me my food. All aftercare was explained to me and I had a bag full of painkillers/antibiotics/extra gauze etc to take home and after a few hours I was good to go. I travelled back from London to Staffordshire (2.5 hours) in no pain at allI took the next week off work, but again I didn’t feel any pain at all throughout this time, just the pressure in my nose/head that many people speak about when sharing their experiences. My packing was dissolvable, so I couldn’t breathe out of my nose for about 8 days - it’s taken a good 4 weeks to feel like I can breathe normally again, even with regular use of the sterimar & other nasal sprays Kelly recommended to meAgain Kelly has been great throughout the post op process, regularly ringing to check in - luckily I haven’t had any concerns, but know that she would be at the other end of the phone if I did need anythingI was again really nervous on my cast removal day, as I didn’t know what to expect because of swelling etc. However as soon as I looked in the mirror I loved the results I saw. My scar is minimal and not noticeable when looking front on.I do feel like my nose has swelled slightly since my cast removal day, but I know this is a trust the process situation and I will see my final result after the year.Overall, at 4 weeks post op I’m super happy with my results and so glad I chose Dr Hamadeh & his lovely team

I could not recommend Dr Hamadeh and his team more! He has made my nose even better than I could expect (and I’ve only had my cast off for 2 days so it’s going to get even better!). Such a good surgeon! Kelly his nurse is amazing, her support throughout has made me feel so at ease. She is the kindest and MOST supportive person. She is only ever a call away to answer any questions and concerns I had (both before and after the surgery). A 10/10 team. Thank you again

She knew how nervous I was about having surgery and she made me feel so calm and reassured me when I was waiting to go down for surgery. Even after, Kelly would check in on me regularly to see how I was doing and answer any questions I hadI’ve always been self conscious of my nose and my only regret was not doing it sooner. I’m so happy with the results it’s even better than I thought it would be, Dr Hamadeh and he’s team are amazing! Can’t recommend him enough!

I couldn’t recommend Dr Hamadeh enough! I had rhinoplasty in July and I’m unbelievably happy with my results. The whole process has been so amazing and I knew I was in good hands. Dr Hamadeh made me feel so at ease at my first consultation, he was honest and professional throughout. Both Elizabeth and nurse Kelly have been great. Kelly - what an amazing lady! She made me feel so calm when I was waiting to go down for surgery and has checked up on me nearly every day since. Thank you so much! Best decision I’ve made

After thinking about having nose surgery for several years I finally decided to bite the bullet a couple of months ago for my wedding and I’m so glad I did! Dr Hamadeh has been amazing throughout and is truly a master of his craft - thank you so much for giving me my dream nose! You have genuinely changed my life! I cant stop smiling every time I look at myself. Everyone has said how amazing my new nose looks and how much it suits my face. My only regret is not getting it done sooner! I’m so happy I went with Dr Hamadeh who knew exactly what I wanted. I’m also extremely grateful to Kelly for being by my side throughout the process. Kelly was present at my consultation, before/during and after surgery and the aftercare has been amazing. Kelly goes above and beyond for her patients and genuinely cares. She is always available to answer any questions, is reassuring and has just been incredible throughout - thank you again! Thank you to Elizabeth who has also been amazing during this process. Thank you all - you’ve all been wonderful.

My experience has been really rewarding. Both Elizabeth and Kelly are so helpful and friendly. They supported me throughout and made me feel very comfortable with the whole process. Dr Hamadeh is so kind and was very honest with me about the procedure and results that could be achieved. On the day of surgery the nurse, Kelly, stayed with me beforehand and helped me to feel relaxed. I’m only around 2 weeks post op and I love my nose already! The aftercare has also been brilliant and I couldn’t be happier about choosing Dr Hamadeh for my rhinoplasty.

I have had such a great experience with Dr Nizar Hamadeh, Elizabeth and Kelly. They are a great team and I couldn't have asked for more. Any time I felt nervous during my heeling process, I was reassured immediately by the team. Really happy with the continuous support and would highly recommend Dr Hamadeh. He has made me feel so much more confident and I will be forever thankful.

Great experience from start to finish! Elizabeth was great, very helpful and friendly, always got back to me quickly with any questions I had. I had met with various surgeons before meeting and choosing to have the rhinoplasty by Dr Hamadeh. During my consultation, he really took the time to listen to want I wanted and the expectations I had. On the day of my surgery, I was very nervous, but Dr Hamadeh made me feel at ease and reassured me. I’m 2 months post-op now and I’m so happy with my results. My nose is still quite swollen, but it has given me so much confidence and honestly I wish I had done it sooner - Dr Hamadeh is a great surgeon. Nurse Kelly has been fantastic since I’ve had my operation, always taking the time to check up on me and has been on hand morning, noon and night for any questions I’ve had. She is such a friendly, genuine person and you can really tell how much she loves what she does and cares for her patients!
