Plastic surgery

A facelift, also known as a face lift, is an aesthetic surgical procedure that aims to minimise the signs of natural ageing. Loss of volume in the face, sagging cheeks and excess skin on the neck are signs of ageing. By making precise adjustments to the skin, subcutaneous tissue and muscles, we achieve a fresh, youthful appearance. Our aim is to use innovative techniques to achieve a natural freshness and avoid the "operated facelift look". During your consultation, our plastic surgeon Prof Fansa will work with you to determine the most suitable form of your facelift.

Worth knowing

A facelift can be combined with other corrective procedures. Shorter incisions are sufficient if only facial areas such as cheeks, sagging cheeks or the chin line are affected. If the neck is also to be tightened, this requires additional incisions behind the ear. During a facelift, we tighten the subcutaneous tissue (SMAS layer, DEEP plane) and remove excess skin from the face and neck. A facelift should only be performed by experienced plastic surgeons who specialise in this procedure. In addition to reducing wrinkles, they can also define facial contours.
