Latest developments in Facelift Surgery

The range and sophistication of procedures to restore a youthful appearance to the ageing face has advanced considerably in the last few years to the point where the traditional 'face lift' that tightened and re draped the skin is now only rarely indicated.

Better understanding of the changes in soft tissues and muscles of the face has stimulated the development of a range of procedures that are tailored to the needs of each individual. Facelift surgery using shorter scars, different planes of dissection and more individually tailored lifting techniques have allowed us to produce evermore natural and balanced results, but, more recently, replacing lost volume at the same time has taken results to a new level.

Structural Fat Grafting, also called 'lipostructure' has transformed the way we look at correcting facial aging and allows us to precisely and permanently reverse some of these changes. We can harvest the patient's own fat using gentle liposuction and transfer living fat cells to the areas in the face where it has been lost with reliable and natural results.

What are the benefits of fat transfer?

The aging face is certainly characterised by loss of elasticity in the skin, which gives rise to jowls and folds in the neck but often there is also a loss of soft tissue volume, particularly in the cheek area due to drooping of the cheek fat. In contrast to the fullness of youth the face later in life can look gaunt with a sunken appearance in the region of the cheek bones and mid face.

Lipostructure is an operation to take fat from one part of the body (e.g. the abdomen or buttocks) and transfer it to another part of the body, usually the face, to try and reverse some of these changes. It can also be useful in correcting the facial contour abnormalities seen following traumatic scars and be used to cosmetically enhance the lips. The operation can be performed under local or general anaesthetic depending on the extent of the treatment, takes about 1 hour to perform and usually requires 1 night in hospital.

During the procedure, the donor area for harvesting fat is prepared in a similar fashion to performing liposuction. The fat is harvested using a special suction cannula so it is not damaged. it is then centrifuged to allow separation of the intact healthy fat cells from those that have damaged. The live fat cells are then injected in the treatment areas using a very fine cannula to place tiny amounts of fat in tunnels which are carefully built up to form layers which restore volume and shape.

Between 50% and 60% of the transferred fat survives. This means a certain amount of overcorrection is required which also contributes to some of the swelling following surgery.

Mr. Murphy; who specialises in plastic surgery in Manchester; runs a comprehensive, discreet practice based at the Spire Hospital in Manchester, UK. Consulting Rooms at the hospital offer relaxed state-of-the-art facilities for patient consultations, sophisticated medical photography, dressing changes and suture removal.
