Face lift is a procedure to correct saggy face. With better technology, we can now achieve face lifting non-invasively.
As we age, our faces naturally go through transformations due to a combination of factors. One of the most noticeable changes is the loss of volume and facial fat pads that previously provided youthful support and contour. Without this volume, the cheeks start to hollow and the mid-face looks empty.
Simultaneously, the skin thins out and loses elasticity causing loose, sagging skin along the jawline, neck, and lower face. Gravity also comes into play as everything starts to descend downwards. The fat and tissues shift lower, creating jowls and exacerbating drooping. Additionally, the redistribution of remaining facial fat contributes to the appearance of heavy nasolabial folds and puffiness under the eyes.
All these age-related changes together create an overall droopy, sagging, or flabby appearance in the face making one look much older.
As suggested by the name, non-surgical face lifts do not involve any incisions or general anesthesia like a traditional surgical facelift requires. There is no need for stitches, bandages, or an extended recovery period afterwards either. That’s why these treatments are sometimes referred to as a “lunchtime facelift” – they can literally be done during an extended lunch break!

There are several procedures for face lifting in Singapore, including traditional liquid face lift, Thermage FLX, HIFU, Ellanse and thread lift. The best procedure for you will depend on your individual needs and goals. It is important to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon or aesthetic doctor to determine the best procedure for you based on your individual needs and expectations.
A well-performed facelift can result in a natural-looking appearance. The goal of a facelift is to restore a more youthful, refreshed look rather than creating an artificial or “overdone” appearance.
The key to achieving a natural-looking facelift is to select a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon who has a good understanding of facial anatomy and an artistic eye. The surgeon should also be able to understand the patient’s specific concerns and goals and tailor the procedure accordingly.
A natural-looking facelift should restore a more youthful contour to the face and neck while preserving or restoring natural facial expressions and movements. However, it’s important to have realistic expectations and understand that facelift will not make you look like you did when you were 20 years old, but it will definitely help to smooth out wrinkles, jowls and give you a more youthful and rested appearance.
There is no set limit on how many times a person can have a facelift. The number of times a person can have a facelift depends on the individual’s skin quality, underlying health condition, and their desired outcome. However, it’s important to note that facelift is a major surgery and it’s not recommended to have multiple surgeries in a short period of time.
It’s also important to note that each time a facelift is performed, the skin is stretched and the underlying tissues are manipulated, which can cause scarring and can weaken the skin over time. Therefore, it’s important to have realistic expectations and to consider the long-term effects of multiple facelifts.
Also, a good facelift result should last for a decade or more, but as time goes by, the aging process will continue, and you may consider a revision or a second facelift to maintain or restore the youthful look, but it’s important to wait for the right time, and have enough time in between surgeries to let your skin and body heal properly.
