The Best Facelift in London
London plastic surgeon Dr Kremer's signature facelift and necklift are his trademarked "Turn-Back-Time facelift" and "Turn-Back-Time necklift".
(Read more about the TBT Facelift). Dr Kremer has been voted the best facelift surgeon in the UK by Tatler as well as the best for necklift by W magazine and National Geographic.
Since Dr Kremer's arrival in London facelifts have been one of his most requested procedures. The
facelift is a major surgical procedure whose purpose is to improve the appearance of the face, jaw area and neck. The improvement is achieved by tightening of the skin and facial muscles and, where needed, removal of fat. The degree of improvement varies from individual to individual, and is influenced by the physical traits of the skin, and the amount of sun damage, the underlying bone structure, and a variety of other factors. Prior to surgery, as part of your evaluation, photographs will be taken. Photographs are as important to the plastic surgeon as X-rays are to the physicians in other medical specialities. These photographs are part of your confidential medical record.
In a neck lift, excess fat is removed through a small incision under the chin, and the superficial neck muscle is tightened through a hidden incision behind the ear. In this lift, the incision is extended behind the ear to the ear lobe around in front of the ear and then behind the hairline of the temporal region. From this section of the facial skin is mobilized. The underlying tissue is tightened and then relaxed and the excess skin is removed. After closing the skin, your face will look much younger.
For strongly sunken cheeks and nasolabial folds, a strong lifting of the mid-face may be necessary. This lift will be cut above the gum or placed under the eyelid and is based on a new technique developed in Beverly Hills for mid-face lifting. In many cases, a superficial facelift for the patient is sufficient.
The positioning of the cuts is optimised so that the scars remain as invisible as possible, which is especially important for men in particular as they usually have a shorter hair cut and lighter hair growth. With my technique, we will be running the cut "in front of the ear" and partly hidden behind the ear cartilage (tragus).
If the wrinkles on your neck are not so pronounced, you can apply a gentle mini facelift. In this procedure, the incision is just in front of the ear and from here, cheeks are raised again to remove excess skin. The swelling after such a mini facelift is significantly less than after a full extensive facelift.
The deep plane facelift is a surgical technique that goes beneath the skin's surface muscles to lift and reposition facial tissues. By working at this deeper level, the procedure can provide long-lasting results without putting too much tension on the skin.
