Quick Information

About Facelift & Necklift: Enhancing Youthful Radiance

Our face is a canvas of emotions and vitality, unique to each individual. Yet, the passage of time can bring about changes like loss of elasticity, reduced volume, and the emergence of wrinkles, brown spots, and altered skin texture. While these are natural aspects of the aging process, they can manifest prematurely due to genetics or insufficient skincare, prematurely adding years to your appearance.

A facelift, scientifically termed rhytidectomy, is a transformative surgical intervention targeting the removal of excess facial and neck skin. This procedure also involves lifting the underlying tissues to refine facial contours. Known as a SMAS lift, it offers remarkable results. Variations include SMAS plication and deep plane facelift, each serving unique needs. By addressing wrinkles, sagging folds, jowls, a double chin, marionette lines, prominent nasolabial folds, and neckbands, a facelift bestows a rejuvenated and more well-defined facial structure.

Notably, a facelift doesn’t address excess skin or laxity in the forehead and eyelids. To comprehensively address these areas, a blepharoplasty and brow lift procedure can be synergistically combined with facelift surgery. This holistic approach ensures a harmonious and naturally refreshed appearance.

Typical Causes Of Early Signs Of Ageing

The intricate dance of time on our visage orchestrates a symphony of transformations, encompassing bones, soft tissues, and skin. These elements harmoniously create our facial canvas, yet the passage of years can paint premature signs of aging, often swayed by an array of influential factors.

Sun’s embrace, the unfurling plumes of cigarette smoke, and the intoxicating lure of excess libations can all play a role in hastening the aging process, etching their marks upon our faces. These imprints typically manifest as waning skin elasticity, etched-in wrinkles, the delicate folds of nasolabial and marionette lines, the advent of jowls, the sagging curtain of periorbital skin, the gradual descent of once-lively brows, and the subtle retreat of soft tissue and bone volume.

Enter the realm of Dr. Yasser Khattab’s Facelift in Dubai – a bespoke masterpiece artfully curated to counteract these chronological imprints that can prematurely cloak the face and neck. This all-encompassing facelift opus elegantly addresses the evolving landscape of the mid to lower facial realms and the neck, ultimately gifting a symphony of youth and vibrancy to your countenance.

Exploring Diverse Facelift Approaches

Embarking on your facelift journey commences with a comprehensive consultation guided by the skilled hands of Dr. Yasser Khattab. Drawing from your medical chronicles and an intricate facial evaluation, a personalized roadmap for your transformation unfurls, meticulously outlining the procedure’s intricacies and its tapestry of advantages and considerations.

A ballet of rejuvenation, the facelift choreography unfolds over a span of two to five hours, potentially extending its embrace if harmonized with companion cosmetic endeavors. Orchestrated under the tender orchestration of intravenous sedation or the cocoon of general anesthesia, the surgeon crafts his artistry through incisions harmonized with technique and your preferences, leaving a harmonious symphony of possibilities:

  1. Traditional Facelift: The classic opus in facial rejuvenation, this technique tenderly tightens sagging skin and orchestrates a graceful harmonization of the mid to lower face.

  2. SMAS Lift: Breathing life beneath the surface, the Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System (SMAS) lift redefines facial contours with an artistic touch, awakening the skin’s innate vitality.

  3. Deep Plane Facelift: This operatic masterpiece delves beneath the skin’s proscenium, lifting and sculpting both soft tissues and spirit, elevating your facial journey to new heights.

Dr. Yasser Khattab, our virtuoso conductor, shall unveil these symphonic overtures during your consultation, aligning each note with your desires, and illuminating the path to a rejuvenated opus of you.


As the final notes of your Dubai facelift performance fade, a new movement commences – the interlude of recovery, meticulously guided by the maestro himself, Dr. Yasser Khattab. Like the measures of a symphony, this phase unfolds with a sense of purpose, crafting a harmonious cadence to your rejuvenation.

Whether gracing the hospital’s chambers for a night or making a daytime cameo, this is your moment of metamorphosis. The choreography of recovery orchestrates a gradual crescendo over two weeks, unveiling the masterpiece of transformation.

Within this temporal sonata, swelling, moderated pain, delicate bruising, and the fleeting touch of numbness emerge as key players, their fleeting performances part of the healing overture. A gentle pharmacological melody of prescribed pain relief accompanies your journey, ensuring a seamless transition.

The overture continues with the gentle removal of sutures, a delicate movement within the first ten days. Dr. Khattab’s expertise intertwines with your path, guiding you through a dance of mindful post-operative care:

  1. Refined Retreat: Your sanctuary during these initial weeks lies within the embrace of your home, where rest becomes your chosen rhythm.

  2. Graceful Handling: The incision, a stroke of artistry, seeks your tender touch; refraining from undue pressure and eschewing makeup’s embrace prolongs the symphony.

  3. Solar Serenity: The sun, an effervescent partner, is held at bay for three months, its radiant warmth deferred to preserve the delicate harmony of your scar’s transformation.

As you glide through this convalescent movement, a melodic synergy resonates with Dr. Yasser Khattab’s guidance, ensuring your journey crescendos toward complete rejuvenation. Each note, each passage, is nurtured by his vigilant care, harmonizing with the clinic’s embrace every 4-5 days, orchestrating your path until the triumphant finale of restoration.
