Facial surgery in Mougins

NECK-FACIAL LIFT

A neck and face lift can reproduce the oval and the original morphology of the face.

The purpose of a neck and face lift is to restore tension to the facial tissues that have collapsed with time. This procedure also corrects jowls and ugly aspects of the chin area (double chin) and neck (baleen).

This procedure can be combined with eyelid surgery, a temporal lift or fat injections in the cheekbones to restore volume.

TEMPORAL LIFT

Temporal brow lifting corrects sagging eyebrows thereby rejuvenating the upper third of the face.

RHINOPLASTY

Rhinoplasty corrects and harmonises the nose’s morphology. This surgery alters the bone and cartilage architecture of the nose. This smoothes out any “bumps” and refines (the tip in particular).

Rhinoplasty can be achieved by a concealed scar (internally) or by a small scar at the base of the nose (externally). The choice of incision depends on the morphology of the nose and the procedure concerned.

The surgeon will inform you of the incision he considers most appropriate for you during the consultation.

In some cases, it is possible to correct minor imperfections using filler injections (e.g. hyaluronic acid) or botulinum toxin (BOTOX).

Practical information :

  • General anaesthesia
  • Duration of the procedure : 2 hrs
  • Hospitalisation : Outpatient

Otoplasty can correct the appearance of “prominent” ears, something that often has a significant psychological and social impact.

The scars are hidden behind the pinna.

Practical information :

  • General anaesthesia or local anaesthesia
  • Duration of the procedure : 90 mins – 2 hrs
