offers you different types of liftings

The term ” lifting ” is often associated with the treatment of facial wrinkles, which is partly untrue. We distinguish several types of lifting, depending on the area of the face concerned. What they all have in common is the treatment of “relaxation” of the tissues of the face, including the eyelids, and neck.

Restoring the relaxed structures will have a positive effect on certain wrinkles, but will be ineffective on most wrinkles around the eyes, nose or lips, the treatment of which will be developed in the medical treatments sections.

Face Lifting

Dr Philippe Kestemont and Dr Soraya Sadi answer your questions about Face Lifting!

The principle of aging

Aging of the “skin envelope” is characterized by thinner, wrinkled skin in the region of facial orifices such as the eyes, nose and mouth. Facial fat migrates away from these orifices to the jowls (breaking the oval facial line) and under the chin (giving the classic double chin).

This applies to both men and women…

Temporal lift
or mannequin

This technique involves treatment of the lateral region of the eyebrow. Classically combined with Botox, it allows the drooping eyebrow to be repositioned through a mini-incision hidden in the hair, sometimes with the help of video surgery.

Frontotemporofacial facelift

Today, these procedures are reserved for reconstructive surgery after accidents or deformities.

The current trend is to combine simpler techniques with injectables such as Botox and Hyaluronic acid…

This is what Doctor Philippe Kestemont, face and neck surgeon and injection specialist, proposes.

Classic Lifting

This technique corrects the contours and volumes of most of the face. This “skin-protecting” facelift technique delivers longer-lasting, more natural results, with shorter scars and much simpler post-operative follow-up.

It should be possible to resume social life partially during the first week, and fully after 15 days of treatment.

This type of facelift is performed by Dr. Philippe Kestemont, a specialist in aesthetic surgery of the face and neck.
