As we age, the skin loses its elasticity and succumbs to gravity, causing it to sag and shrink. The ageing process normally begins in the 30’s but some people are genetically pre-disposed to developing signs of ageing as early as their twenties (for instance, developing sagging cheeks and jowls). How you live your life and even where you live can have an influence on how fast you age. What you eat, how much time you spend in front of TV or computer screens and how much sunshine you are exposed to can accelerate the ageing process.
Is Facelift Surgery in Dubai right for me?
Through advanced surgical techniques Dr Ricardo Ferla makes it possible to regain a youthful appearance and look as fresh and young on the outside as you feel on the inside.
Many men and women turn to a facelift and/or a necklift procedure to regain their confidence and youthful appearance. A rhytidectomy, more commonly known as a ‘facelift’, is surgery that removes the wrinkles from your face and tightens up your skin to slow down the signs of ageing.
A good facelift candidate understands the limitations of surgery. A detailed consultation with our Surgeon and seeing before and after photos of other facelift patients are an important part of the consultation process. A patient with realistic expectations is much more likely to be happy with his or her final results.
What is involved in Facelift Surgery in Dubai?
When performing a facelift, Dr Ricardo Ferla first makes a concealed incision behind the hairline and separates the skin from the underlying muscles and tissue. After tightening the facial muscles to improve the contour of the face, he stretches and repositions the skin to make it fit the face more closely and to smooth away wrinkles. Finally, excess skin from the face is trimmed at the incision site and the incision is closed.
Neck Lift Procedure
Many people who are undergoing face lift surgery would also benefit from a neck lift. Neck lifts sharpen the neck line and remove the vertical bands in the neck. These vertical bands are the edges of a muscle called “platysma”. During the procedure, we will do the following as necessary:
- Join and tighten the muscles of the neck, creating a firmer muscle base
- Remove excess fat deposits
- Trim excess skin, and smooth the skin for a taut, more youthful neckline
Depending on your needs and goals, your customized neck lift in Dubai might consist of one or both of two different procedures:
- Skin lift – The skin lift procedure consists of lifting and tightening the skin along the throat, and removing excess skin to create firmer, tighter facial features.
- Platysmaplasty – A procedure in which the underlying muscles are tightened and fat is repositioned. This procedure provides more dramatic results for patients whose underlying neck tissue is very lax.
Mini Face Lift in Dubai
The mini-facelift rejuvenates the lower third of the face including the jowls and neck. Mini-facelifts accomplish many of the goals of the traditional face lift. The mini-facelift is also referred to as an S-lift or short incision facelift due to the shape and smaller size of the incision. Good candidates for the mini-facelift include people who want to take five years off their face. These patients may benefit from smaller incisions and the use of tiny barb sutures, instead of a large incision that requires heavier stitching.
Mini-facelifts can prevent the signs of again before they become readily apparent. The flexibility afforded by a mini-facelift allows your plastic surgeon to address specific areas while at the same time controlling the amount of time needed for recovery. Depending upon the extent of the surgery, you may need to stay in the hospital overnight following a mini-facelift; often, you are permitted to return home the day of the surgery.
Although a mini-facelift can only address a specific isolated problem in facial plastic surgery, the flexibility of the procedure and the fact there is no lengthy recovery process make the mini-facelift an exciting option, especially for younger patients.

Cost of Facelift and Necklift Surgery in Dubai
Every case is different, just as every person is different, therefore it is very difficult to provide a set price for Plastic Surgery Procedures. There are many different factors involved; a patients age and level of skin damage or laxity, health levels, and medical history, whether or not implants or prosthesis will need to be used, and if the procedure needs to be completed under general anaesthetic in a hospital or not. As such, a full and complete quote will be provided to the patient after a detailed consultation in the clinic.
What is important, and what our patients appreciate, is the close personal care and attention that Dr Ricardo and his team provide as part of the service. We are happy to provide references that will attest to the long lasting relationships that Dr Ferla has with his many happy and satisfied patients.
