Which Facelift Is Right For You?

Posted by Dr Dutta on 15 February 2016

The term facelift is a very generic one so when patients are confronted with the range of facelift treatments and options it can all become a bit daunting.

The actual definition of the word ‘facelift’ is a cosmetic surgical operation to remove unwanted wrinkles by tightening of the skin of the face, but in reality it can be used to represent both surgical and non-surgical treatments. So how can you be sure which is the best option for you.

To help you decide we’ve created this quick guide to all the facelift treatments offered by Aesthetic Beauty Centre. This will give you the key points for each procedure but you can also book a free consultation where you can talk to one of our clinicians about your preferences and they’ll advise you for your final decision.
