Surgical Skin Tightening

Surgical skin tightening is a procedure in which skin is pulled and tightened manually. As we all know loose skin and wrinkles come along with ageing and make our skin look worse. This could be due to reasons like losing facial volume. Surgical procedure includes a vast variety of facelifts like brow lift, neck lift and eyelift. These procedures provide a great result to help you with your hanging skin.

How Does Skin Tightening Work?

The procedure can involve various surgries like:

  • Eyelid surgery - This surgery helps you to remove excess losing skin from above and below your eyes and under eye. Fat pads can be repositioned to plump up the hollowness under your eyes. Some doctors inject the fat taken from the thigh of the patient and injected under the eyes.
  • Facelift surgery - A rhytidectomy commonly called facelift is a surgery that helps to tighten the losing skin on the face. During this procedure sedatives and anaesthesia is given to the patient to minimise the pain. It can smoothen away deep lines and give fullness to your cheeks by repositioning fat pads and tightens your face. Most surgeons perform short scar facelift surgery in which a cut is made from the temple to behind your ears. For tightening the jawline the cut can continue up to the hairline which helps you to look younger by tightening your face.

Cost of Surgical Skin Tightening

The cost of Surgical Skin Tightening depends on the condition of your skin.


Surgery typically lasts two to three hours and can be performed as an outpatient procedure or as an overnight hospital stay.

You can expect some bruising and swelling after your procedure. Most of the swelling should fade within approximately a week, while the bruising may take two to three weeks to clear out. You may feel mild headaches and numbness, itching and hair loss at the incision. Bandages applied following surgery are normally removed within a few of days, and stitches may be removed within one to two weeks.
