The facelift

The facelift aims to correct sagging facial tissue (cheeks, jowls, contour of the face and neck) and to reduce wrinkles.

The cervico-facial lift

Also known as a "classic" facelift, the cervicofacial lift makes it possible to trace facial features, with the exception of the upper eyelids and forehead. The face is remodeled and rejuvenated in its entirety; the skin is smoothed, the wrinkles attenuated, the jowls and double chin gummed.

The procedure lasts 2 to 3 hours, under general anesthesia or neuroleptanalgesia (local anesthesia associated with injecting tranquilizers). After an incision in the scalp and around the ear, the skin is peeled off and then "redraped" on the face and neck. The muscles of the neck and cheeks are slightly tightened to preserve the natural appearance of the face.

The hospitalization lasts 24 to 48 hours. For 48 hours, the patient wears a compressive hood to limit edema and bruising; these will disappear over the weeks. The scars will be hidden by the hair and the relief of the ear.

Well done, a classic facelift allows a rejuvenation of about ten years; depending on the lifestyle and the type of skin, the effects will last longer or longer (5 to 15 years). The same person can perform 2 to 3 facelifts during his life. In addition, more and more patients are using laser or peeling to optimize the effect of the face lift, erasing the last wrinkles and fine lines.

The cost of a cervico-facial lift varies from 3, 000 to 6, 000 euros depending on the work to be done and the fame of the surgeon.
