“The great thing about the best facelifts is that they are undetectable.” – Dr Nettle.

Dr Warwick Nettle is a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon with over 20 years of experience. Early into his career, he realised his passion for facial plastic surgery, in particular facelifts.

Since his early days training with some of the most respected plastic surgeons in the US, Dr Nettle has performed thousands of facelifts and has gained an international reputation as a leading facial plastic surgeon known for his natural looking facelifts.

To Dr Nettle, it’s not about pulling back some skin in order to make one’s face look less wrinkled or saggy, but it’s about achieving a natural looking result by creating a balanced and harmonious appearance. So when friends or family see you a few weeks after the procedure, they will tell you how amazing you look, but won’t quite be able to put their finger on what exactly has changed. You’ll look refreshed and energised, but still like yourself.

“The goal of a facelift is obviously a more youthful appearance, but we’ve all seen surgery where people look different rather than younger and better. I avoid this facelifted look at all costs,” Dr Nettle explains.

In order to achieve a natural result, Dr Nettle uses specific facelift surgery techniques that reshape the underlying layer of connective tissue rather than stretching the wrinkled surface of the skin. Not only does this create a more natural look, but the result will also be longer-lasting.

As facelift techniques are always evolving, Dr Nettle regularly attends Plastic Surgery conferences and workshops to learn about the most advanced ways to achieve excellent results.

Although most facelift patients we see at Silkwood Medical are in their 50s, there really is no perfect age for this procedure and Dr Nettle has operated on much younger as well as much older patients.

Facelifts are often combined with other facial procedures such as eyelid surgery to achieve the most harmonious result possible. Have a look at Dr Nettle’s fantastic results in our facelift before and after gallery and if you would like to book a consult with him, give us a call on (02) 9387 3900.
