A rhytidectomy, or facelift, is a surgical procedure to improve the face’s appearance and to lessen the visible signs of aging. This intervention allows to improve the looks of the forehead, the cheeks and the neck.
A forehead and eyebrow lift is a surgical procedure used to lift up the eyebrows, to smooth out the forehead area and to treat a certain number of muscles that create wrinkles.
A thorough evaluation of the eyebrows’ positioning is an integral part of any surgical procedure involving the eyelids and vice-versa. Sagging eyebrows will contribute to the drooping of the upper eyelids, and must therefore be treated concomitantly.
Thanks to the introduction of non-surgical procedures such Botox injections, forehead facelifts are less commonly used now, but remain a very interesting option in case of severe sagging of the eyebrows.
Demi-lift ou mini-lift
Le demi-lift, ou mini-lift, est une procédure chirurgicale visant à améliorer l’aspect central du visage, à savoir les rides profondes aux joues et au coin de la bouche ainsi que le relâchement des tissus aux pommettes et les bajoues. Il s’agit d’une procédure plus facile impliquant moins de convalescence que le lift complet classique.
Midface lift, demi-lift or mini-lift
A midface lift, also called ademi-lift or a mini-lift, is a surgical procedure used to improve the looks of the mid-portion of the face, to lessen deep wrinkles on the cheeks and around the mouth as well as to tighten up sagging skin at the cheekbones and the jowls. Compared to a full facelift, this procedure is simpler and the healing period is reduced.
Full facelift or cervicofacial facelift
A full facelift, or cervicofacial facelift, involves the above-mentioned midface lift and corrective procedures to the neck area, i.e. smoothing out sagging skin, removing excess fat deposits under the chin (double chin), and tightening up loose muscles that can cause two unwanted vertical lines to appear in this area.
Fat can be used in many ways in face reconstruction and plastic surgery procedures, and it contains several types of cells involved in the tissues’ regeneration process.
A lipoinjection consists in the injection of fat cells to build up volume and to fill in unwanted depressions. It is essentially used to add volume to the cheekbone area, to correct depressions under the eyes and to fill in deep wrinkles. It is often performed concomitantly with other surgical procedures such as a rhytidectomy (facelift) or a blepharoplasty.
