Facelift surgery is currently the most effective and long-lasting treatment to correct facial aging and sagging face and neck.

There are different types of facelifts depending on the areas of the face to be treated: lower, mid or upper.

Although surgery price is higher than the price of non-surgical treatments, the cost is offset by the duration of the treatment result.

However, this surgical procedure requires the intervention of an experienced surgeon. A good plastic surgeon must know how to advise the patient wisely and avoid at all costs these frozen and expressionless faces lacking of naturalness.


As we age, facial skin and facial muscles lose tone, this process being more pronounced from the age of 40.

The objective of a facelift, also called rhytidectomy, is to obtain a rejuvenated and natural-looking face. It is not about looking like someone else, but about recovering a younger version of yourself.

The surgery technique consists of removing the excess skin after repositioning the muscle layers, the skin and the fat. The incision usually begins in the temple area (inside the hair), extend down in front of your ear and continues around the earlobe, behind the ear and the scalp.

Scars are perfectly camouflaged. The intervention is performed with general anesthesia or with local anesthesia and sedation.


  • Regenerate the face volume through fat grafts.
  • Tighten the muscle layer.
  • Increase the cheek volume and define its curve.
  • Define the jawline.
  • Define the neck.


  • It is the best treatment for facial flaccidity (saggy skin).
  • The results last longer than if we resort to non-surgical techniques.
  • The scars are invisible.


The surgery choice is made based on the patient’s needs and the signs of aging and facial flaccidity that they want to treat.

Lower face lift

Lower face lift and neck lift is indicated to treat wrinkles in the middle and lower thirds of the face and neck. This cosmetic surgery aims to maintain the naturalness of the face.

The tissues are repositioned. The neck and the jawline are redefined. Cheekbone area is given more volume and the youthful oval is restored. The incisions are around the ears to make them invisible.

This surgery can be combined with liposuction. The fat that accumulates in the submandibular area (dewlap) is extracted and injected (lipofilling) in the areas of the face that need more volume.

Superficial fat is removed from the neck. As a result the neck and the angle between the neck and the jaw are defined, giving the face a younger appearance.

Mid face lift

Thanks to the mid facelift, also called cheek lift, we achieve natural as well as spectacular results. The face, the eye orbit area and the eyelids are rejuvenated.

Doctor Benito is one of the few surgeons who carry out this facial rejuvenation technique in Spain. Through two small incisions in the scalp and in the mouth we can lift all the cheekbone tissues, enhancing the area without the need for implants and with a lasting result. This technique gives a natural volume to the cheekbone. If necessary, lipofilling can also be carried out.

Upper face lift

The upper face lift aims to reduce or eliminate wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyebrows. It also aims to raise the eyebrows (brow lift). Through this surgical procedure it is possible to eliminate the sad or tired aspect that some faces transmit, giving them a more youthful appearance.

Dr Benito carries out this surgical procedure with endoscopic minimally invasive technique. Two small cuts are made inside the scalp, making the scars almost invisible. Patient recovery is faster.


Once the lifting surgery is complete, the wounds are closed with stitches, leaving small tubes under the skin so that no exudate or blood accumulates.

The patient will leave the operating room with dressings, bandages on the head and a drainage system. Although hospitalization is not necessary, it is recommended that the patient be accompanied so that he can be assisted in the following hours after the intervention.

The postoperative period is practically painless, although uncomfortable. To reduce inflammation, we use a special facial mask (hilotherapy) that provides cold and constant temperature of 15ºC.

The day after the intervention, the surgeon removes the bandages and evaluates the incisions and the condition of the face. The recovery time will last around two weeks. As in other plastic surgeries, the patient will experience swelling and bruising in the treated area. These symptoms will fade gradually.

Fifteen days after the intervention, the patient can return to normal life and begin with the usual routines and activities. You should be especially careful with sun exposure. Face lift surgery does not involve serious risks or side effects.

To ensure success, you need to use a team of highly experienced plastic surgeons with access to the right technology. It is also essential to carry out a correct preoperative study and medical control after the intervention.


Much of the feeling that the facelift was an old-fashioned technique is caused by some celebrity cases that, after going through it, showed a completely artificial and expressionless face.

However, the unnatural result was not caused by the technique itself, but rather by a poor skin management. That is why we always highlights the importance of placing yourself in the hands of specialists who have long experience in this type of techniques and who, despite the wishes of the patient, know how to give a wise advice.


The facelift cost depends on many factors, including the time of surgery and the costs associated with admission to the clinic.

Without knowing the patient, we do not offer approximate prices since each patient is different. But we know that the economic factor is important when making the decision.

For this reason, we offer the patient the possibility of coming to the clinic facilities for a free and no obligation first visit. You will be able to consult with the surgeon all your doubts or concerns. The medical team will offer the best solution and the best price for your facelift.


Currently there are many facial rejuvenation techniques. To delay the effects of aging, we have several tools such as botulinum toxin, radiofrequency, bioplasty and peelings / laser.

The combination of many of these techniques allow facial aging to be treated with a very fast recovery. They are performed in consultation, so no hospitalization is needed.

This non-surgical facelift treatments are effective in situations of mild flaccidity. For instance, the nasolabial folds or marionette lines can be treated suitably with botox or liposculpture.

Other alternative option to surgical lifting is the use of tightening threads. The incisions are minimal and the inflammatory signs are easy to hide with makeup. We use 2-3 threads to help maintain the right angle of the neck.

Tightening threads can be combined with a small fat liposuction, or the muscular bands treatment with Botox. In the middle third, one or two threads help to raise the cheek tissue. The result is immediate and provides a rejuvenating effect that can last for years.

However in more serious cases, or when the patient has reached a certain age, non-surgical treatments are not effective. The traditional facelift surgery outstands as the most effective technique to remove wrinkles.

The technique has evolved over the years. Currently, face lifting is practiced with different state-of-the-art techniques, including laser facelift. No other treatment is able to achieve the same results.

Besides all this, the cost / benefit ratio leans in favour of the facelift. The cost is offset by the duration of the treatment result.
