This is arguably the ultimate rejuvenation intervention. The facelift lifts or repositions the skin and subcutaneous tissue upwards. To do this, the facelift generally uses several cosmetic surgery techniques.

The basis of rejuvenation and beautification is to restore these volumes. Thus the periphery of the eye, the cheekbones, the various furrows and folds, the jowls and even the contour of the jaw can benefit from this technique. This consists of taking quality fat belonging to the patient and transferring it to the face in the places concerned. In order to be as efficient as possible and to achieve the highest level of success, this fat must be as fine as possible, which is why it is removed using fine cannulas. The use of fine cannulas also helps reduce the immediate stigma of the procedure in terms of swelling, edema and bruising.

Lipofilling not only has an immediate and long-term effect on the redistribution of volumes but also has an effect on the quality of the skin. It is not uncommon to see improvement in texture, complexion and wrinkles, thanks to the effect of stem cells and growth factors taken during the technique.

This technique is the basis for the development and use of nanofats which is an extreme emulsion obtained from fat and which can be used to improve fine lines, texture and color in dark circles, around the mouth or the neckline.



This technique will be carried out, depending on the case, under local or general anesthesia and is often offered in combination with a blepharoplasty or a mini-facelift. Some patients can even benefit from it to replace a mini-facelift thanks to its less invasive aspect.

Every surgical procedure can involve a certain amount of risk and complications that the patient must accept; your plastic surgeon will make it his or her duty to reduce the rate of occurrence by choosing the technique best suited to your medical situation. Complications such as bleeding, wound or prosthesis infections and poor healing, although relatively rare, can occur with any type of surgery.
