Face lift

Over time, the face loses volume and the skin relaxes and old age takes over the shape of face, forehead, jawline, cheeks, neck etc. Face lift can then become a necessity to fight against the effects of time, in an effective way with long-lasting results (up to 10 years).

There are different types of face lifts. All consist of tightening the skin, without excess, for a rejuvenated but natural effect. The upper facelift rejuvenates the face above the eyes (brow line and forehead). The midface lift handles the parts between the eyes and the mouth (cheeks, eyelids, upper lip). The lower facelift takes care of the part below the mouth (laugh lines, jawline). The full facelift will tighten all facial skin and move underlying tissue to give the face some volume. The mini lift targets an early stage of skin sagging with a particular action on the cheeks and jawline; with a less invasive procedure.
The surgical operation involves scars, often hidden in a fold, behind the ear, under the hair, and which can be different depending on the patient and the techniques used.
Urgotouch ® laser scar treatment can be performed following this operation, on the scars in front of the ear and on the neck, in the operating room, to give you every chance of having a more beautiful scar.
