What To Expect After a Ponytail Facelift?

With the rejuvenated, youthful appearance and natural-looking results, our traditional facelift in Sydney remains popular with our clients. However, younger clients seek a facelift surgery that lifts their face and tightens skin, like putting the hair up in a ponytail. At Artiste Plastic Surgery, we give our clients the solution to this concern through our Ponytail Facelift. 

How does a Ponytail Facelift work?

A ponytail facelift is a minimal incision cosmetic surgery facelift made just above each ear and hidden along the hairline, allowing the plastic surgeon to reposition the upper face, muscle and ligaments higher to rejuvenate and highlight the cheekbone and brow. The procedure can be done as day surgery, and you can return to work after ten days.

Am I a good candidate for a Ponytail Facelift?

This facelift technique is most suitable for patients under 50 who want to fight the early signs of ageing and has minor laxity, mild volume loss, and fine lines to be corrected. It’s also for younger patients who want a minimally invasive incision with less downtime. 

What to expect after a Ponytail facelift?

As we age, the skin loses elasticity, and the muscles start to sag. The connective ligaments of the face are deteriorating and relinquishing their youthful position, resulting in loose skin, droopy brows and eyelids, forming of nasolabial folds and lose neckline. 

A ponytail facelift surgery performed on a qualified patient can improve the skin tone, lift the brow and upper face, tighten the neckline, resulting in a rejuvenated, glamorous and more youthful appearance.
