    Face Lift Techniques

    According to the survey carried out by Opinionways, over 17% of women would contemplate having a face lift done. Actually, it is today one of the most popular kinds of aesthetic surgeries.

    1- New face lift tendencies

    Getting a more “refreshed” and youthful look to help reverse the harmful effects of time has long meant the reshaping of the whole face: forehead, temples, cheeks and neck. This traditional facelift is also known as the cervical and facial lifting.

    A wider variety of cosmetic surgery lifting techniques is now available today to meet the more and more segmented demand of younger women in need of more particular solutions to their problems located in the slope of the eyebrows, jowls or cheekbones areas…
    Since the full face lifting technique was no longer the answer for these women, the mini lift or soft and more segmented lifts techniques emerged. These give results that are more adapted to the localized demands where only part of the face is treated.

    The full face lift is no longer the answer. Tailor made lifting techniques adapted to every particular case are now available.

    2- The mini lift techniques

    These mini lift techniques can address the slope of the eyebrow (temporal lifting), the cheekbones areas or the shape o the face itself…

    The face and neck lift or facelift
    It corrects neck skin flabbiness, lose skin folds and double chin, sagging of bone cheeks, naso-labial folds…

    The forehead and slope of the eyebrow facelift
    It addresses flabbiness and deep wrinkles of the forehead, the loosening of the slope of eyebrows, a tired expression or look.

    All these mini face lift techniques can be today performed under local anesthesia.
    Some may even use endoscopic techniques in some cases.

    The most popular mini lift is actually that affecting the shape of the face since it corrects the appearance of sagging jowls.
    Performed under local anesthesia, its scars are non visible ones since they are placed behind or inside the ears.

    A mini lifting lasts for about 10 to 12 years, depending on the patient lifestyle. The technique can be performed anew by then.
    No risk is entailed when the surgery is performed by an expert plastic surgeon.

    Final looks need to be natural and adapted to the personal facial shape in every case.

    Other procedures can finally be associated to the mini face lift:
    Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery,
    • Aesthetic medicine (botox, hyaluronic acid or fillers  injections, peelings, laser techniques)
    • Liposculpture (fat transfer)
