In a facelift, wrinkles and folds in the cheeks, neck and jawline are corrected. During treatment, skin and underlying muscle and connective tissue are tightened and excess tissue is removed. Our plastic surgeons are happy to meet with you in a personal consultation where they will answer all of your questions and work with you to determine which treatment options are best for you.

During the initial consultation, you will discuss your needs and expectations with the plastic surgeon. The surgeon will tell you what options are available and what results you can expect. The plastic surgeon will explain how a facelift is performed. The entire treatment process will be discussed and you will be informed in detail about the different options, the advantages and disadvantages of the facelift, the aftercare, risks and possible complications after the surgery. In addition, we will discuss whether your personal wishes fit your initial situation.

In this conversation, you can also ask all your questions about a facelift.

The goal of a facelift is to restore smoothness to the (sagging) skin and underlying tissue of your face and neck. The wrinkles in your face created by your specific facial expression are reduced but remain to achieve a natural result.

We believe it is important to inform you well during the consultation about the result to be achieved, the risks and possible complications so that you can make a well-considered decision. Ultimately, your wishes and satisfaction with the results of the treatment are our priority.

A consultation is subject to a €100 consultation fee. These will be deducted from the final price of the treatment.

In general, a facelift takes place under general anesthesia. The duration of the operation depends on the extent of the procedure. Before the operation, the plastic surgeon carefully outlines the area to be treated. During surgery, an incision is made and through this incision, the skin of the neck, cheeks and the layer of tissue under the skin are loosened. This is then returned to its original position and tightened towards the ear. Any excess fatty tissue in the neck area can be removed through an incision under the chin. At the end of the operation, one or more drains (thin tubes) can be placed in the wound to drain wound fluid and blood from the wound. These drains are removed after a day. After a facelift you must stay with us one night.

After the facelift, your face is bandaged with a pressure bandage. This bandage should remain in place for several days. Generally, you will be allowed to go home the next morning under supervision. After surgery, your face and neck will be swollen and discolored; on average, this lasts two weeks. One to two weeks after surgery, the stitches are removed. The scars are always visible on close inspection, but are hardly noticeable. They run into the hairy scalp and from there down along your ear. There the scar curves around the earlobe to disappear again under the hair at the back of the ear. Depending on the indication, there may also be a small scar under your chin. The final result of a facelift is only visible after several weeks. Scars are sometimes more visible in darker skin. The complete healing process of scars takes one to one and a half years. To facilitate this process, we recommend using a good scar cream and exposing your scars to UV rays as little as possible. To promote the wound healing process, we advise you not to smoke for six weeks before and six weeks after surgery. This reduces the risk of bleeding and other complications. We also recommend that you do not drink alcohol one week before and one week after surgery.

As with any surgery, there is a small chance of a complication. Common risks are:

  • post-bleeding
  • infections
  • swelling
  • delayed wound healing
  • allergic reactions

Specifieke complicaties die in een uitzonderlijk geval bij een facelift zijn:

  • moisture deposits
  • facial stiffness
  • facial nerve damage

During the consultation, the plastic surgeon will discuss all the risks and possible complications with you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our plastic surgeons specialize in performing a facelift and therefore place the scars where they are least visible. In the skin crease in front of the ears, in the hairline or directly behind the ear, they are the least visible. In the first few months, the scars are noticeable, but as time goes on, they will become lighter and lighter in color. We recommend that you care for the scars with a scar cream.

On average, a facelift is visible for about 10 to 15 years, but this does vary from person to person. Realize that the aging process in your body does continue, which can become visible in your face. By living healthy and taking proper care of your skin, you will get the most out of cosmetic surgery.

When you can return to work after the facelift depends on the type of procedure and the proper aftercare that goes with it. Whatever type of facelift we perform, you will always wear a bandage around your head for the first few days. You must not exert yourself or bend over during the first week. Physically strenuous efforts may resume after one month. Depending on the type of work you do, you can return to it after two weeks.
