This is undoubtedly the rejuvenation procedure par excellence. A facelift lifts or repositions the skin and subcutaneous tissues upwards. To achieve this, facelifts generally involve a number of cosmetic surgery techniques.


The classic cervico-facial lift will reduce excess skin and reshape the underlying structures. A face lift is often combined with other cosmetic surgery procedures.

A facelift is usually performed under general anaesthetic and generally only requires outpatient hospitalisation. Some facelifts can be performed on the lower face and neck. The area to be treated must not be the whole of your face.

Every surgical procedure can involve risks and complications that the patient must accept; your plastic surgeon will make it his duty to reduce the rate of these by choosing the technique best suited to your medical situation. Complications such as haemorrhage, wound or prosthesis infections and poor healing, although relatively rare, can occur with any type of surgery.
