Facelift has becoming one of the most popular facial rejuvenation procedures desired. Although in the past the over-corrected 'plastic look' was all too common, today, a skilled plastic surgeon can produce beautiful, natural-looking results.
A Facelift, from 'Rhytidectomy', the surgical removal of wrinkles and sagging skin, is a cosmetic surgery procedure, used to reduce facial wrinkles and other signs of aging and to give a more youthful appearance. Multiple types of lifts usually involve the removal of excess facial skin, often with tightening of underlying tissues and muscles in the patient's face.
The basic idea behind a facelift surgery is to remove excess skin, that is loose and sagging on the face, and to tighten the underlying tissue.
All types of facelifts can be performed by using the minimal incision or 'short scar' technique. Minimally invasive facelifts offer natural looking results and less downtime.
With meticulous attention to tightening and repositioning muscle and skin, in addition to sculpting and repositioning facial fat, plastic surgeon Dr Kaye in Marbella creates a rested, youthful, long-lasting natural-looking result. Many patients look as many as 5-10 years younger and, best of all, instead of looking 'lifted', today’s patients simply look refreshed, rested and healthy.
Friends will recognize that you look better but they won’t know why. With today’s new surgical techniques and technology, facelifts now last longer than ever before. These modern techniques are also less invasive, which means less swelling and a shorter downtime for the patient.
Dr Kaye Director and Head Surgeon of Ocean Clinic Marbella begins with a very short incision along the hairline, from the temple, down around the ear lobe and to the back of the ear. After separating the skin from muscle and fat underneath, it is then pulled up and back, and the excess removed. Sagging muscles and tissues can also be tightened, and fat deposits can be removed or repositioned to produce a more youthful shape to the face.
The excess skin that is removed never returns, so you will always look younger than you would have without surgery. The skin does continue to age, however. When new sagging develops, you may, if you choose, have a minor 'tuck-up' procedure to correct it. Dr Kaye will help you decide if a 'tuck-up' is needed.
The idea of this 'enhanced facelift' is to combine the most effective anti-aging techniques currently known to cosmetic surgery into one package. All carried out together, it not only offers patients the best results possible, it also reduces the cost, discomfort and downtime associated with having multiple procedures.
Rhytidectomy lifts and tightens the facial muscles and skin, correcting major sagging, meanwhile liposuction is used to target fat deposits under the chin or around the eyes. To improve the appearance of lines, age spots and discolouration, a chemical peel is applied to the skin. A Fat transfer will be done, to restore facial volume into the areas required. These could include the lips, cheeks and eye hollows. It is a permanent solution and can also be used to soften deep wrinkles such as those which appear around the mouth, nasolabial folds.
Tackling all signs of aging, the PAVE-Facelift achieves unparalleled results. The treatment is tailored to each patient and is therefore suitable for younger men and women as well as older individuals.
Autologous Fat Transfer or Lipofilling with Aqualift®, is a minimally invasive facelift surgery, using the 'Water Jet' or 'Body-Jet' device.
Positive effects, such as smoothing the nasolabial folds and lifting and tightening the chin line, are immediately apparent during the procedure. The result is a more fresh and lively facial expression in the eye area and a totally natural appearance of the face.

During my first meeting with plastic surgeon and director of Ocean Clinic in Marbella, Dr Kaye, I was immediately reassured by his real interest in understanding what my objectives were and what he recommended surgically. As a 66 year old, I wanted a fresher look without looking drastically different. This resulted in a lower facelift and upper eyelid surgery.
Having made the decision to consider a facelift surgery, his Patient Manager Louise went through all the various consent papers explaining the pre-op requisites and details of what to expect during and after the operation. Her kind and friendly personality was really helpful. The unique set up of Ocean Clinic Marbella, Dr Kaye and Louise makes one feel special and that your welfare really matters.
It was great to be able to call Louise day or night and have any questions on your recovery progress answered. The bruising and swelling was quite impressive but does improve! The eyelid stitches were removed after five days and the face ten days later – both painless procedures.
Like childbirth, the immediate pain and discomfort are soon forgotten and well worth the new confidence gained !
I consider being very fortunate to have put my face in the safe and competent hands of Dr Kaye, Director and Head Surgeon of Ocean Clinic Marbella. What better testimony though of his talents are the 'before and after' photos attached. Knowing how important it is to feel in safe hands, I would not hesitate to recommend Ocean Clinic Marbella.
The boundaries of plastic surgery are always being pushed and remarkable achievements continue to be made. One of the most exciting is the successful face transplant carried out recently in the United Sates.
The gentle power of water to rejuvenate the face was presented by Ocean Clinic’s Dr Kaye to more than 400 surgeons at a meeting of Germany’s national association of plastic surgeons (DGPRAC).
