A youthful face is a face with beautiful soft curves created by perfectly placed volume and a radiant skin. To therefore achieve a totally rejuvenating effect it is of utmost importance to correct both volume and skin quality.

Dr Wilkinson says, “I see so many patients who have undergone a technically beautiful facelift, however if the volume and skin quality has not also been addressed, I believe we have failed these patients in delivering a refreshed, youthful result as they simply look as if they had a facelift. The Stemcell4DLift™ is therefore one of my top procedures in delivering a scar-less facelift that rejuvenates and regenerates the facial tissues, achieving the most natural results.”

By harnessing the regenerative power of your body’s own stem cells, countless medical applications have been developed – from repairing injured tissue to curing diseases, and cosmetic procedures are no exception. One of the newest plastic surgical procedures is the Stem Cell Facelift.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Stem Cells?

What Is A Stem Cell Facelift?

A Stem Cell Facelift is a new and emerging trend in the world of facial plastic surgery. Even though it is not a true facelift, it utilises special fat grafting techniques to smooth out the texture and fine lines of the facial skin allowing for a more youthful appearance. It is a completely scar less and incision free procedure, making it ideal for those who are not ready to go under the knife.

Dr Nerina Wilkinson has however pioneered a more advanced and effective Stem Cell Facelift procedure, the StemCell4DLift, a 4 dimensional approach to the original Stem Cell Facelift for an even more holistic and effective approach to skin rejuvenation.

Who Is The Ideal Candidate For A Stem Cell Facelift?

If you’ve started to notice signs of maturity on your face such as wrinkles and sagging skin, but you’re unwilling to undergo a full-scale facelift, you’re an ideal candidate. Additionally, Dr Nerina Wilkinson will deem you suitable for this treatment if your expectations are realistic and if you’re in good health physically and mentally.

A Stem Cell Facelift is ideal for patients who have started to notice the signs of ageing, for example deflation, hollowness and sagging of the cheeks, jawline and eyelids as well as the typical skin quality changes resulting in fine lines, irregular pigmentation and loss of elasticity.

The rich regenerative capacity of the stem cells makes this procedure ideal for any patient who wants to “slow down” the ageing process.

Dr Nerina Wilkinson therefore advises this procedure to patients who are requesting facial fillers, as it is ideal for those who require more extensive volume replacement and skin tightening to achieve a more long-lasting, youthful appearance.

The

Procedure

Dr Nerina Wilkinson examines the skin of your face and the underlying tissue to ensure you’re a viable candidate and assess where where she will be harvesting the stem cells from.

It’s imperative, to be honest about your medical history, medication you’re taking and your expectations. If she feels that your hopes are not in line with what you can be granted by the treatment, another procedure that’s more suitable might be recommended.

Once your examination is complete and you’ve had all of your concerns addressed, you can book your procedure.

The procedure itself is simple and doesn’t involve any intravenous anaesthetic. Instead, a local anaesthetic is used in conjunction with oral sedation.

The process involves two steps:

1. Harvesting – Stem cells are carefully removed from the subcutaneous fat of the abdomen. Then, the fat is processed to be drained of excess oil and blood.
2. Injecting – Growth factor is added to the fat and stem cells, which is then injected into the patient’s face to complete the stem cell facial treatment.

Depending on your current age and desired results, the amount of time it takes for you to recover will vary. On average, you can expect to fully recover within seven to 10 days after the stem cell facelift treatment.

Dr Nerina Wilkinson has over 20 years of experience in the field of plastic surgery, and fully understand her patients, their needs and their emotions leading up to surgical / aesthetic procedures, which allows her to provide world class advice and care. Additionally, her staff are exceedingly well trained and experienced and equipped to provide you with incredible pre and post-operative care.
