Face lift

Face lift

The face lift is a targeted procedure that rejuvenates the face by lifting and repositioning the structures of the face that have lost their elasticity and tone. A face lift can be sub-divided into three areas of intervention: the face lift, the neck lift, and the brow lift. It is also possible to carry out so-called mini-lifting procedures. Other procedures like blepharoplasty, peeling, and filling are often associated with the lifting procedure.

Anaesthesia and hospitalization

A face lift may be performed either under general or local anaesthesia in the presence of the anaesthetist (stand-by). Usually, the patient remains hospitalized for one to three nights. The length of the procedure is between two and four hours.


A few days’ rest are required after the procedure. Dressings must be changed daily, while the sutures are removed 5-10 days later, depending on the zone. Swelling tends to disappear in about a week, while bruises will take two to three weeks to disappear. After two weeks, our qualified cosmetician will proceed with the application of make-up.
