Face and neck surgery

Plastic surgery

The aim of plastic surgery in general is the renovation and/or the remodeling of the face and the silhouette of subjects in good health..
This is different from reconstructive and repair surgery, which is to restore what nature, disease or a trauma has taken away or deformed.

Only doctors qualified in plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery and registered by the order are allowed to practice this specialty.

There are many techniques and non surgical alternatives in cosmetic surgery which can be proposed according to each case.

Each facelift is unique !

Cervico-facial facelift, Bordeaux

The cervicofacial facelift refreshes the face and corrects the ageing defects from the eyebrows to the neck.

The purpose of this surgery is to offer a significant rejuvenation according to the natural anatomical structures of the face, the skin quality and radiance, the patient social habits and personal needs.

It is frequently associated with other procedures such as lipostructure (autologous fat transfer) in order to restore facial volume, botulinum toxin injections (Botox, Vistabel, Dysport, Azzalure, Bocouture), hyaluronic acid injections, or liposuction.

The skin texture will be improved by peeling, laser skin dermabrasion or even pulsed light (IPL).

  • 2 pre-operative consultations are recommended in order to best understand the patient needs.

They allow reliable information for a mutual consent in order to analyze in full transparency the risk-benefit ratio.

This intervention is performed under general anesthesia or neuroleptanalgesia and involves a short stay at hospital.
