In a facelift, wrinkles and folds in the cheeks, neck and jawline are corrected. During the 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. De behandelend plastisch chirurg zal uitleggen hoe een facelift in zijn werk gaat. Het gehele behandeltraject wordt besproken en u wordt uitgebreid geïnformeerd over de verschillende opties, de voor- en nadelen van de facelift, de nazorg, risico’s van en eventuele complicaties na de operatie. 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 feel 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 an informed decision. Uiteindelijk staan uw wensen en de tevredenheid met het resultaat van de behandeling bij ons voorop.
A consultation is subject to a €100 consultation fee. Deze worden in mindering gebracht op de uiteindelijke prijs van de behandeling.
Generally, a facelift takes place under general anesthesia. The duration of surgery depends on the extent of the procedure. Before the operation, the plastic surgeon carefully draws the area to be treated. During the surgery, an incision is made and through this incision, the skin of the neck, cheeks and the tissue layer under the skin are loosened. This is then returned to its original position and tightened toward the ear. Any excess fatty tissue in the neck area may be removed through an incision under the chin. At the end of surgery, one or more drains (thin tubes) may be placed in the wound to drain wound fluid and blood from the wound. These drains are removed after one day. After a facelift, you will need to stay with us overnight.
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:
- 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.
