Restore the radiance of your eyes

We offer different types of facelifts

This is the earliest request for facial rejuvenation. For Dr. Philippe Kestemont, aesthetic surgery, aesthetic medicine in Nice, the aim is to correct: excess skin, herniated fat pockets or loss of eyelid volume and projection, giving the appearance of a hollow eye.

The quality of this eyelid surgery will determine the restoration of the “radiance of the eyes” that gives the face its light! It is essential to remain conservative and remove only a moderate amount of skin and fat to maintain a “full” look, reflecting the youthful appearance of the eyes. This is what Dr. Philippe Kestemont, a specialist in aesthetic surgery and aesthetic medicine in Nice, proposes by performing aesthetic surgery of the Face and Neck in Nice.


Dr. Philippe Kestemont and Dr. Soraya Sadi answer your questions about blepharoplasty!

Aesthetic surgery of the upper eyelid

This procedure is performed by Dr. Philippe Kestemont, aesthetic face and neck surgeon in Nice, using a thin incision hidden in the palpebral crease. It should remain virtually invisible once the eye is open, once the threads have been removed.

As a rule, this type of cosmetic surgery poses few problems, and enables you to resume your social life very quickly, with a real sense of “well-being” and a feeling of openness and lightness in the eyes. Combined with Botox, the result is a very complete rejuvenation of the upper face.

Cosmetic surgery of the lower eyelid

A more sophisticated and complex form of aesthetic surgery, offered by Dr. Philippe Kestemont, a specialist in aesthetic surgery of the face and neck in Nice. Here too, a small amount of skin and fat is removed, but the healing of this fine incision hidden beneath the eyelashes can lead to changes in the shape of the eyelid, giving the dreaded round-eye appearance.

It is therefore essential to master all lower blepharoplasty techniques to be able to “prevent and correct” these potential problems. This scar can be avoided, for example, when fatty bags are extracted via the inner eyelid, thus eliminating any risk of round eyes.

Worth knowing

An ophthalmological check-up is necessary before any eyelid surgery. As with any surgical procedure, it must be performed in a surgical clinic, even with local or locoregional anesthesia. Dark circles cannot always be corrected surgically, as bluish discoloration requires additional medical techniques.

The combination of  Botox and  and  Hyaluronic acid injections  with eyelid surgery has produced results for the upper face that are as spectacular as those obtained with heavy liftings frontotemporal facelift techniques.
