A lipoma is a non-cancerous slow-growing lump made up of fat cells and is one of the most common benign growths in the skin. People of any age can develop them, but often becomes most apparent between the ages of 40-60. Lipomas are located deep under the surface of the skin and is soft to the touch, moving easily when prodded with a finger, and typically causes no discomfort. Some people may have a single lipoma, and some may find several over their body.
While lipomas do not cause any health concerns, they can be vexing, especially in a very visible area of the body. Removal involves a simple in-office excision. The treating Plastic Surgeon will numb the area with local anaesthetic and surgically remove the lipoma, suturing the skin back together afterwards.
The Surgical Experience
Short Scar facelift procedures are performed under local anaesthesia with twilight sedation as an outpatient procedure in an accredited surgical facility. The length of the surgery will vary, but it generally takes between 2-3 hours. This surgery is considered an outpatient procedure. After surgery, patients will be dressed with a head wrap that is removed 2 days after surgery. There will be mild bruising and swelling of the face and neck. This will gradually improve within a few days. The scars associated with the short scar lift are well hidden within the curvatures of the ear and will fade over time. Most patients will need 1 week off work following surgery, and can resume full activities after 6 weeks.
Each facelift surgery is unique and will be tailored to each patient. Most patients can expect to pay $8,500-$13,000.

Non non-surgical procedures such as BOTOX®, injectable fillers, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels can assist in smoothing out surface wrinkles, improve fine lines and add facial volume. However, patients with loose skin, drooping jowls or a sagging neck will need to consider surgery if they want these features improved.
No. Short Scar facelift procedures are performed under local anaesthesia with twilight sedation, so the patient is comfortable throughout the operation, without the risk of general anaesthesia. All procedures are performed in an accredited non-hospital facility.
