The 'R' Face Lift
This is a modified and less invasive facelift technique by its creator, Mr Riaz.
We call it the ‘R’ face Lift to differentiate it from the previously described ‘S’ facelift technique as there is no skin-undermining and deep dissection of tissue, therefore there is no swelling or bruising after the operation. The deep MACS (Minimal Access Cranial Suspension) facelift-type of sutures used give all the benefits which can be achieved by performing a MACS facelift and at the same time recovery time is very quick.
There is no risk of damage to any nerves and also there is no risk of surface irregularity which can result after skin undermining and collection of blood clots. This technique is suitable for all types of patients, including patients who have early ageing changes and wish to have a quick recovery time.
This is also suitable for patients with moderate to severe age-related changes who wish to avoid the more invasive procedures.
This technique is also very suitable for revisional surgery or secondary facelifts.
