Need a face lift? Here’s how and where you can get a face lift in Malaysia

As we age, the collagen in our skin starts to deplete resulting in saggy skin, causing our face to lose skin elasticity as a result. This can result in a “droopy-looking” face.

There are many factors that cause the rate of collagen production to reduce which include stress, age as well as weight loss.

Age is inevitable of course, but there are many ways you can try to avoid saggy skin especially on the face. If creams and collagen drinks don’t work for you, the one thing you might need to look youthful again is a face lift. Lucky for us, we have surgical and non-surgical options out there that you can opt for.

It’s important to know what face lift is all about before you book an appointment so read on and find out more.

What is a face lift?

A face lift is a procedure that elevates your skin and tightens the tissue, as well as muscles beneath the skin.

The fat in the face and neck may be removed, sculpted or redistributed.

When a face lift is being done, the skin on each side will be pulled back for the face to return to a more youthful shape. Excess skin will then be removed before the flap is closed. However, do note that a face lift is not a procedure to treat wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage or irregularities of skin colour.

What is a non-surgical face lift?


Now that you know what a face lift is, there are non-surgical options to get that youthful appearance again. But what is a non-surgical face lift, you may wonder. Well, it is the use of minimally invasive non-surgical procedures to rejuvenate and refresh your look, offering an effect that’s similar to a surgical face lift but a lot more subtle.

Non-surgical face lifts require not just one treatment but a combination of several treatments to get desired results.

The advantages of having a non-surgical face lift are that they don’t require large incisions which also mean you don’t need to go “under the knife”, no hospitalisation and no general anaesthesia. You’ll be able to leave the clinic soon after the treatment!

Here are some examples of non-surgical face lift treatments:

Thread Lift

A thread lift is when a doctor inserts threads on your face in order to give it a more natural lift.

No removal of loose skin will be done during this treatment. The overall outcome is that it would seem like your skin will be pulled back slightly. In other words, lifting and tightening of the face. This helps collagen, which is known to support the growth of your skin, to surge in the areas where the threads are placed.

Dermal Fillers

These are smooth gel injectables that are injected into your skin to help restore the volume that has been lost.

Dermal fillers help to remove your wrinkles and fine lines too. Dermal fillers contains a moisturising ingredient, hyaluronic acid, along with other hydrating ingredients.


Botox is used to remove any wrinkles, forehead creases and ‘crow’s feet’. Your muscles will be relaxed temporarily while it straightens out the facial lines which usually appear when you laugh or smile too much.

But bear in mind you will only see results within one or two weeks and could only last for about three months.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

This treatment doesn’t involve any needles. Instead, the doctor will use a type of laser, either ablative or nonablative, to remove the outer layers of your skin to stimulate collagen production. Usually, this treatment could last for a few years.

What is a surgical face lift?


A surgical face lift on the other hand is a procedure that lifts, firms and reshapes sagging facial tissue to restore a more youthful facial appearance. This procedure requires surgery at the hands of a certified cosmetic surgeon.

With the removal of excess sagging skin, excess fat, lifting and tightening of the tissues, you will of course look younger.

For a surgical face lift, the patient goes “under the knife” and the results are much more dramatic so many patients would say that they look like they had years shaved off.
