Face Lift


As one ages, the facial tissue begins to lose its elasticity and tends to become loose or wrinkly. The soft tissue, fascia (Superficial Musculo-Aponeurotic System) supporting the soft tissue and connecting ligaments lose its elasticity and begins to stretch. Drooping of tissue and skin surrounding the cheeks tend to create a hollow look in front of the cheekbones, creating wrinkles, deepened nasolabial lines and double chin.

These usually start developing when one is in their 30s and 40s. As everyone’s skin condition differs, the extent of ageing effect will appear so as well. A facelift will give you smoother looking skin and a youthful appearance.

Over at Zoe Medical, we will help you explore various surgical, minimally-invasive and non-surgical facelift procedures (inclusive of Thermage skin tightening treatment) offered at our centre, and customisable treatment plan to suit concerns and expectations. Producing natural and lasting results.


High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) & Radio-frequency (RF)


A non-invasive HIFU treatment, Ulthera rejuvenates your skin from within and delivers waves of energy into the skins deeper layers. This will target subcutaneous tissues, dermis and epidermis, restructure the skin, and encourage the reproduction of elastin fibres and collagen to create a lifting effect.


A non-invasive Radio Frequency (RF) therapy, Thermage smoothens, tightens and contours ones skin for an overall younger-looking appearance. The treatment delivers energy into the skins foundation layer – causing collagen to contract and encourages can be seen just after one treatment with gradual improvement.

Liquid Face Lift: Botox & Filler

Liquid Face Lift

The procedure plumps up fine lines and wrinkles, restores contours, and defines facial features in one sitting. It rejuvenates the skin and is a non-surgical procedure which is perfect for those with mild to moderate skin laxity who cannot undergo an extended downtime – post-procedure. Our specialists also achieve optimal rejuvenating results by using a mix of botulinum toxin and fillers from renowned brands such as Restylane, Botox and Juvederm.


To smoothen out fine lines and wrinkles, many patients choose the usage of fillers. Fillers recreate youthful facial contours and improve the definition of facial features and address lines and wrinkles in a variety of places, including the areas between the eyebrows, on the forehead, below the corners of the mouth, chin and along the nasolabial folds.

Additionally, fillers may be used to add contour or volume under the eyes, along the temples, along the nose, above the cheeks and along the lips. Using botulinum toxin prevents the development of dynamic wrinkles, allowing our specialists to target selected muscle groups, achieving specific lifting or slimming results.


Commonly used to address forehead lines, frown lines, crow's feet, nasolabial lines and necklines, Botox can also be used on areas around the jaw for slimming, on the brows and lip corners for lifting. A liquid facelift ensures skin rejuvenation and will last up till a year. Additionally, it can be prolonged with treatment intervals done between one to four months apart.


Mini Facelift or MACS Lift

The procedure targets mid-facial skin laxity issues while leaving minimal scarring. One will be a suitable candidate for the surgery if they exhibit droopy jowls or have done lifting procedures in the past. As opposed to a traditional facelift, a mini facelift utilises short-scar endoscopic facelift techniques, vertically repositioning the underlying muscles and fat tissues in the mid-face.

At Zoe Medical, we provide you with mini facelift procedures that add a youthful boost to the cheeks and eyebrows – improving the contouring around the treated areas and eliminating hollowness from tissue migration.

As every individual is different, some may require additional fat grafting procedures to plump up areas that suffer from volume loss for a rejuvenated appearance.  Patients will face swelling and bruising post-procedure, which will take 10 to 14 days to subside. Hence, patients are advised to return to daily activities only after three weeks.

Traditional Facelift (Rhytidectomy)

A traditional facelift, known as Rhytidectomy, is a comprehensive surgical procedure that addresses multiple ageing concerns. The procedure gives life to all areas between the forehead and neck, and produce lasting results that make patients look at least 10 years younger.

Suppose one suffers from severe skin laxity problems, deep facial creases, excess facial skin, uneven subcutaneous tissue distribution, or previous results from any surgical facelift techniques mentioned. In that case, it is recommended to undergo full facelift surgery.  The nature of the procedure will be done by an incision being made along the hairline that follows the ears natural curvature. Said incisions would be hidden under and behind the ear down to the nape of the neck.

The advantage behind the procedure is that it removes excess skin and allows the surgeon to reposition fat pads and muscle tissues, lifts cheek and brow positions, restoring youthful facial contours. Patients will expect two weeks downtime post-surgery, and bruising, swelling and scarring to fade will take up to a year to subside. As such, it is recommended for patients to avoid vigorous activity a weeks after surgery.

Neck Lift (Submental Lipectomy)

Apart from being used for skin tightening, a neck lift can also be used to remove localised fat deposits under the chin, correct muscle laxity, and remove excess skin where necessary. Ideally, it is for patients seeking skin rejuvenation around the neck and chin to achieve youthful jaw and necklines.

The procedure is often performed in conjunction with a facelift for better results. Sutures and staples are generally removed within seven to 14 days post-surgery. Patients will expect at least two weeks of downtime and up to a few months for the swelling and bruising to subside. As such, surgeons generally recommend patients to avoid vigorous activity for a few weeks post-surgery.

Facelift Procedures in conjunction with Lasers or Injectables

Designed to enhance skin tightening, prevention of sagging and age-related changes, lasers and injectables improve the volume, texture and quality of the patient's skin. When lasers and injectables are used in conjunction to a facelift, the combined effect enhances skin rejuvenation to provide an even better result. Plastic surgeons utilise a combination of treatments when formulation of a facial rejuvenation plan for a better post-surgical outcome.

A minimally invasive procedure – the face thermalift is used to tighten the muscle and shape the face naturally. The procedure uses a subcutaneous laser's power to reconstruct the entire face, helping one achieve a fresher, firmer and V-shaped look from one's forehead to the chin.


A minimally invasive procedure – the neck thermalift uses safe laser energy to lift skin on the neck and under the chin. The procedure, akin to the face thermalift, uses subcutaneous laser power to reconstruct one’s entire neck to achieve a fresher and more youthful look from one’s chin to the chest.

The purpose of an Otoplasty is to change the shape, size and position of one’s ears and fix misshaped ears due to injuries or congenital disabilities. The procedure helps create a natural shape while bringing balance and proportion of the ear to one’s face.

The procedure works on those who have overly large ears (Macrotia), protruding ears in varying degrees, ears with folded down tips or forwarded trends, abnormally large ear lobes, and the ears; outer appearance rim or natural folds.

  • Overly large ears, commonly referred to as Macrotia
  • Protruding ears in varying degrees
  • Ears where the tip folds down or trends forward
  • Abnormally large ear lobes
  • The appearance of the ears’ outer rim or natural folds

An incision will be made, creating a small scar behind the ear and out of view which will fade over time – making it barely noticeable.

One will need bandages over the ears for several days post-surgery and will have to refrain from washing their hair during the initial stage of recovery. After the removal of bandages, a supportive headband is worn over the ears at night.

One can return to school or work within a week post-surgery. Regular activities and exercises can commence within two weeks.
