Face Surgery

Chin Correction


Surgical procedure to augment, or reduce the protrusion of the chin, to obtain a more harmonious profile of the face. The excessively prominent bone or bone-muscle is eliminated by making an incision on the bottom part of the gum, inside the mouth and removing the extra surface of the bone. When chin is not very pronounced an implant is inserted, chosen on the basis of the facial features and degree of the defect of the patient. It is a surgical procedure reversible: if for any reasons the patient changes its mind the implant can be removed. This procedure can be performed under local anaesthetic with one overnight in hospital.

Taking the next step in Anti-aging

The One Stitch Face Lift is much less intrusive than a face lift and involves just a local anaesthetic. The results are subtle but are often just enough to give patients a fresher and firmer appearance. It is just a day case procedure and does not  require a general anaesthetic. The procedure itself involves just a local anaesthetic and only takes approximately 30 minutes, therefore recovery time is also usually very quick.

  • Scars are usually hidden by hair line and do not stretch – only a tiny incision is made
  • Immediate effects with minimal disruption
  • Patients can return to work the very next day
  • Sutures are dissolvable therefore no need to return for post-op appointments
  • No maximum age applicable
  • Suitable for patients suffering with diabetes and most heart conditions
  • No risk of losing hair

After the procedure we advise that the hair is washed everyday with a mild shampoo for 10 days post-op. Or if preferred you can wash around the scar with boiled cool water. There is no need to return to the hospital for review appointments unless you have a query. The sutures we use are dissolvable, and they usually dissolve within 2-3 weeks.

Q: Who is the most suitable candidate for a one stitch face lift?

The best one stitch face lift patient is someone aged 40 or over, has good skin quality with no sun damage and is a non-smoker. Patients who are looking to achieve subtle results will really benefit from this procedure.

Q: How long do the results last?

This is dependent on the patient and their lifestyle. It usually lasts for 12-18 months. But factors such as smoking and sun exposure can reduce this.

Q: What risks are associated to the one stitch face lift?

With any procedure there are risks but there is just a slight risk of bleeding, bruising and infection. However the latter is heavily reduced due to the surgeon using sutures which have antiseptic incorporated into them. Patients are also given a week’s supply of antibiotics to take post-operative just in case.

Q: Can I have this procedure if I’ve already had a face lift?

Yes you can. Another name for this procedure is a Facelift retighten, which enables patients who’s facelifts have started to sag due to the aging process to get an extra lift. You can also still have treatments such as  BOTOX® anti-wrinkle treatment or Juvéderm ULTRA® dermal fillers
