The face regains its tone and the cheekbones gain volume, while bone structure is improved. The final result of the facelift can be seen between 3 and 6 months after the procedure.
In the case of excess fat, a facelift can be carried out using liposuction. In contrast, if the face is sagging, lipostructuring (fat grafting) can be performed. To optimise the procedure’s anti-wrinkle effect of the treatment, botulinum toxin (Botox®) and hyaluronic acid injections are the perfect complementary treatment.
Good to know
The effects of a facelift procedure can be felt for 2 to 3 weeks after the operation. These include a feeling of tightness, oedema and bruising.
Just as for any surgical procedure, some complications are possible, and for each patient, both the risks and benefits have to be considered. Detailed, personalised information will be given to you by your surgeon during your consultation.
