As we age, we lose elasticity in our skin, facial volume decreases and sagging, lines and wrinkles appear. No one is immune to the hands of time but our genetics and sun exposure can accelerate the signs of ageing for many us.
Dr Drielsma uses the latest advances in surgical techniques to offer natural, reliable, long lasting facelift results.

A facelift with Dr Drielsma can:
reduce the appearance of line and winkles
improve facial sagging of the cheeks and lower face
improve the jawline
Facelift surgery is designed to rejuvenate the lower two thirds of the face. A facelift will tighten the underlying facial muscles and skin via small incision hidden behind the ears.
At your consultation, Dr Drielsma will discuss your concerns as well as your goals for facelift surgery before designing a tailored surgical plan for you.
Patients with multiple concerns such as a sagging neck, droopy eyelids, sagging brow or loss of facial volume will need more than a facelift to achieve a rejuvenated appearance. Many procedures can be combined to minimise your downtime.
Surgery is performed under a general anaesthetic and a nights stay in hospital is usually required. Most people experience swelling and bruising which can take a few weeks to subside.
