Face

Nowadays, with developement of modern aesthetic surgery, the majority of facial imperfections, whether they are constitutional or age-related, can be corrected chirurgically in optimal security conditions. These interventions concern the nose as well as the neck or the eyes.

Cervicofacial lifting

 

Rajeunissement du visage par un lifting

Notre visage est une interface avec le monde extérieur, il représente notre individualité et notre personnalité.

Avec le temps, il évolue, mais pas toujours favorablement : la peau se relâche exagérément, l’ovale du visage perd sa régularité, le cou perd son angulation naturelle et s’accompagne éventuellement de « cordes ». Ainsi, le lifting permet de traiter ces disgrâces du vieillissement pour rajeunir l’ovale du visage. Ainsi, le lifting permet de traiter ces disgrâces du vieillissement pour rajeunir l’ovale du visage.

Lifting cervico-facial pour le rajeunissement de votre visage

Le lifting cervico-facial traite le relâchement cutané, mais de manière concomitante, les tissus du visage s’atrophient au fil du temps : les tempes, les joues et les paupières se creusent, les sillons se marquent… Or le lifting ne traite pas l’atrophie. Il faut donc aussi apporter du volume si l’on souhaite obtenir un résultat optimal et naturel. C’est pour cette raison qu’un lipofilling (remplissage du visage avec de la graisse) vous sera fréquemment proposé dans le même temps.

In practice

The face lift is the surgical correction of aging in the neck and at the level of the face. This procedure will include restoring the facial and neck-chin angle.

The face lift can be performed as soon as the signs of aging appear and a motivated correction request is made, generally from 40 years. This procedure can be performed both in women and men.

A face lift can be performed alone or combined with another facial cosmetic surgery such as surgery of the eyelids (blepharoplasty), lipofilling, temporal lifting etc.

It can also be supplemented by medical therapeutics (peeling, wrinkle filling with hyaluronic acid, botulinum toxin injection).

 

Before Intervention

2 surgery consultations are required before any act of cosmetic surgery. Try to bring pictures of you when you were younger, so as to better study the evolution of your face over time.

An anesthesia consultation is required several days before surgery.

Medical photographs are always made.

Provide for a period of professional unavailability after the procedure, because no sick leave may be prescribed. Depending on circumstances, this period varies from 10 to 15 days. The most important médical instructions are the following: stop taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, or oral anticoagulants within 15 days before the surgery, to reduce the risk of bleeding.

Tobacco before and after the intervention is strictly forbidden in order to improve healing and prevent skin necrosis. To reduce the social seclusion, a homeopathic preparation will be required. This treatment should be started several days before surgery and continued a few days later. A specially designed make-up will be prescribed in cases of bruises. You should wash your hair the day before surgery.

 

Intervention

You are hospitalized the morning of the procedure.
You must be fasting.
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia orneuroleptanalgesia. It lasts 2 to 4 hours depending on the case.
The scars are placed in front of and behind the ear, continuing in her hair.
For greater comfort, closure is performed with absorbable suture in front and behind the ear and are staples in the scalp.

After Intervention

A monitoring occurs in the recovery room first, then in your room. The dressing is removed the day after surgery. Drains are removed along with the dressing.

You shall wash your hair again.
There is no need to re-bandage.
The hospitalization lasts one day.
Get somenone that he accompanies your return home. Provide for a scarf and when combined intervention on the eyelids, dark glasses.

Variably, in the days dollowing a facelift, can be present:

  • Swelling of the face that disappears in the first 2 weeks .
  • Bruising of the face and neck, often asymmetric for ten days.
  • A feeling of uncomfortable tension of the face, especially behind the ears.
  • A frequent decrease in the sensitivity of cheeks and neck.

Any intervention may also carry risks of complications.

There is very rarely pain, which is then relieved by simple analgesics. Staples are removed between the 15th and 21st day.
Make-up is allowed after 7 days.
The first coloring or permanent is allowed after 4 to 6 weeks.

Control consultations are planned after surgery.
 After two to three months, there may be a good idea of the final result. We get the more often a significant rejuvenating effect, which is still very natural: the face does not have a “surgical” look but a rested, relaxed and refreshed aspect..

Reinjected autologous fat

 

Injection de graisse dans le visage ou lipofilling

Avec le temps, les tissus du visage s’atrophient : les tempes, les joues et les paupières se creusent, les sillons se marquent et l’ovale du visage perd sa régularité. Ce processus accompagne le relâchement cutané classiquement traité par le lifting cervico-facial, mais ce dernier est insuffisant car il ne traite pas l’atrophie. Il faut donc aussi apporter du volume si l’on souhaite obtenir un résultat optimal et naturel.

Deux moyens sont aujourd’hui disponibles pour remplir le visage :

  • Les produits de synthèse résorbables. Leur emploi est simple, mais leur tenue jugée parfois insuffisante.
  • La graisse autologue, prélevée chez le patient, qui outre une tenue plus importante, va améliorer la qualité de la peau et des tissus à l’endroit ou elle est injectée. C’est une propriété fondamentale dont les effets sont très appréciés.

La restauration des volumes nécessite une grande précision technique qui lui confère une dimension artistique.

Ainsi, le lipofilling pourra vous être proposé seul ou en complément d’un lifting cervico-facial et/ou d’une blépharoplastie.

In practice

The reinjection of autologous fat (lipofilling or lipostructure) consists in filling subcutaneous depressions with taken from the patient himself. This is a real graft of fat cells.

The indications for lipostructure in the face are:

  • illing and mitigation of some wrinkles
  • Restoring volumes and shapes of the face.

The lipomodelling can then be achieved, by first intention or secondarily, after an initial face-lift to improve the contour of the middle third of the face without resorting to a face-lift, or in addition to some associated face lift or blepharoplasty to improve harmony of the face at a time.

These aesthetic indications can not be supported by health insurance.

Intervention

You are hospitalized the morning of the procedure. You must be fasting (including water and tobacco). Depending on circumstances, the procedure is performed under general anesthesia or neuroleptanalgesia and lasts from 1 to 2 hours.

 

After Intervention

Surveillance takes place in the recovery room first, then in your room. The hospitalization lasts one day.

Allow a person to accompany you when you return home. Provide for a scarf and dark glasses. The first shower is allowed the day after surgery.

  • A swelling that disappears within the first 2 weeks.
  • Bruises, often asymmetric for ten days.
  • A feeling of uncomfortable tension.

There is very rarely pain, which is then relieved by simple analgesics. Any intervention may also carry risks of complications.

In some cases, localized imperfections can be observed (not that they are real complications): localized undercorrection, mild asymmetry, irregularity.

Make-up is allowed after 7 days. The first coloring or permanent is allowed after 4 to 6 weeks.

Control consultations are planned after surgery. After two to three months, there may be a good idea of the final result. Mots often, a significant rejuvenating effect, which is still very natural.

You should know that, in the future, re-injected fat -injected that took grafting is weight change sensitive. Thus, weight loss entails a volume decrease of lipostructure, whereas weight gain entails a volume increase of lipostructure.

Cosmetic eyelid surgery

 

A blepharoplasty proposes to correct in a sustainable manner the signs of aging present on the eyelids and replace the “tired” look of the eye with a more rested and relaxed appearance.

A blepharoplasty can be performed alone or combined with another cosmetic surgery of the face (temporal facelift or cervicofacial lift).

In practice

The “blepharoplasty” means the cosmetic surgery of the eyelids.

The most common mishaps involved are:

  • Heavy and drooping upper eyelids with excess skin.
  • Drooping and wilted lower eyelids with small horizontal wrinkles.
  • « Bags under the eyes » at the upper eyelids or lower eyelids that “bloated” because of herniated fat.

This procedure can be performed both in women and men, and is commonly made from 40 years.

Before intervention

2 surgery consultations are required before any act of cosmetic surgery. Try to bring with you some pictures when you were younger, so as to better study the evolution of your look with time.

An anesthesia consultation is required several days before the procedure except in cases of simple local anesthesia.

Medical photographs are always made.

A period of professional unavailability after the procedure must be provided for, because no medical certificate may be given. Depending on circumstances, this period varies from 1 to 8 days. The mots important medical instructions are the following: stop taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, or oral anticoagulants within 15 days before the surgery, to reduce the risk of bleeding.

Smoking before and after the intervention is strictly forbidden in order to improve healing.

To reduce the social seclusion, a homeopathic preparation will be required. This treatment should be started several days before surgery and continued a few days later. A specially designed make-up will be prescribed in cases of bruises.

Intervention

Upper eyelids alone:

The procedure takes about 1 hour.

This is done under local anesthesia or neuroleptanalgesia. You do not need to be fasting in case of local anestesia. However, you must be fasting if neuroleptanalgesia and in this case, you are being watched in the recovery room before being renewed
in your room.
This is an outpatient procedure, you can immediately go home.

In all cases, you will have a discreet scar placed in the eyelid fold, above the lashes and ending in a wrinkle of the crow’s foot, the closure being effected by means of a running suture with nonabsorbable nylon. A lipofilling of the external part of the upper eyelid may be associated with this intervention.

Lower eyelids alone:

The procedure takes about 1 hour.
This is done under neuroleptanalgesia.
You must be fasting, you are being watched in the recovery room before being taken in your room.
You can go home the same day .

In case of “pouches” alone (without excess skin to be removed), a blepharoplasty may be performed using the conjunctival route, that is to say using incisions placed inside the eyelids.
There will be therefore no visible scar on the skin.
Otherwise, if excess skin, you will have a discrete scar under the lashes and ending in a wrinkle of the crow’s foot, the closure being effected by stitches of nonabsorbable nylon. A lipofilling of the tear through and of the cheek is often associated with this intervention.

visage_blepharoplastie_enpratique

Four eyelids:

The procedure takes about 2 hours.
It is performed under general anesthesia or neuroleptanalgesia.
You are hospitalized the morning of surgery.
You must be fasting (including water and tobacco).
After surgery, you are being watched in the recovery room before being taken back in your room.
You can go home either that evening or the next day.

 

After Intervention

Get someone that he accompanies your return home
(required for day care). Provide dark glasses. Put in your refrigerator mineral water or saline pods. Gauze soaked in saline or cold water are regularly applied on the eyelids for the first 48 hours to reduce edema (swelling) and bruising (bruises).
 Never put ice on the skin.

There is no real pain, but possibly some discomfort with a feeling of tension of the eyelids. The threads, if any, are removed between the 3rd and 7th day.
The usual make-up is allowed after one week, when the threads are withdrawn.

Any eyestrain (television, reading, smoking) and every exertion should be avoided for two weeks. Wearing sunglasses outdoors is recommended.

Any intervention may also carry risks of complications.

Control consultations are planned after surgery. 3-6 months are needed to judge the final outcome of surgery.

The results of a blepharoplasty are usually the most durable in plastic surgery. Removal of “pouches” is virtually definitive, and these usually do not recur. Skin, however, continues to age and resulting laxity can, over time, reproduce the folding of the eyelid. Still, it is rare that a new intervention should be considered before a dozen years.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty corrects disharmony due to aging. It may involve only upper or lower eyelids, or deal with the four eye at a time. Upper eyelid surgery removes excess skin and the appearance of heavy eyelids due to herniated fat. Lower eyelid surgery corrects withered and wrinkled aspect as well as hernia of fat (pouches). Eyelid surgery can be performed alone or combined with a cervicofacial lift. A gesture of aesthetic medicine (peeling, dermabrasion, hyaluronic acid) can also be performed in conjunction with an eyelid surgery.

At what age can I consider a blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty can be performed at the first signs of aging from 40 to 45 years. In case of constitutional heavy eyelids unrelated to age, lower eyelid surgery can be performed in young adults.

How is the hospital?
Eyelid surgery requires only a few hours in outpatient hospital.

What is the preoperative evaluation?
It includes a systematic blood test and possibly anesthetic consultation at least 48 hours before surgery. A specialized ophtalmologic examination will be required to detect a possible contraindication for eyelid surgery.

What is the mode of anesthesia?

Eyelid surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia.

Will I have any scars?
Scars are inevitable but very discreet. They are usually hidden in the upper eyelid crease and under the lower lashes. For lower eyelid surgery, in case of isolated pouches without excess skin, incisions are placed only within the eyelid and leave no scar on the skin.

What is the postoperative course?

The pain is minimal. Bruises can appear at eye level. Generally, after a blepharoplasty, the patient may be in his entourage after 5 days.

When can I resume my work?
You can resume your professional activities 1 week after blepharoplasty.

Temples and eyebrows

 

Le lifting temporal permet d’améliorer les stigmates du vieillissement de la région de la tempe. En effet, avec l’âge, les sourcils peuvent tomber, accentuant la lourdeur du regard. Cette région se situe entre les régions frontale et cervico-faciale qui peuvent bénéficier également d’un lifting. Le lifting temporal qui peut être réalisé isolément est, en pratique, souvent associé à une chirurgie des paupières (blépharoplastie).

In practice

This procedure is intended to replace the anatomical structures, especially the tail of the eyebrow, in the position they were several years ago.

The temporal lift, that can be performed alone is, in practise, often associated with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) or another gesture (cervicofacial lift, lipostructure…)

 

Before Intervention

2 surgery consultations are required before any act of cosmetic surgery. Try to bring with you pictures when you were younger, so as to better study the evolution of your face over time.

An anesthesia consultation is required several days before surgery.

Medical photographs are always made.

Provide for a period of professional unavailability after the procedure, because no sick leave may be prescribed. Depending on circumstances, this period varies from 10 to 15 days.

The most important medical instructions are the following : stop taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, or oral anticoagulants within 15 days before the surgery, to reduce the risk of bleeding.

Smoking before and after the intervention is strictly forbidden in order to improve healing. To reduce the social seclusion, a homeopathic preparation will be required. This treatment should be started several days before surgery and continued a few days later. A specially designed make-up will be prescribed in cases of bruises.
You should Wash your hair the day before surgery.

 

Intervention

You are hospitalized the morning of the procedure.
You must be fasting.
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia or neuroleptanalgesia. It takes 1 to 2 hours depending on the case. The scars are placed in the hair or at the line implantation level (precapillary scar).
If intracapillary scars, the suture is not visible. For greater comfort, closure is performed with staples in the scalp. If precapillary scars, they are situated in front of hairline, and therefore visible, but will be overshadowed by the regrowth of hair through them. For greater comfort, closure is performed with absorbable suture.

 

After Intervention

Surveillance takes place in the recovery room first, then in your room. The dressing is removed the day after surgery. Drainage is not necessary. Your hair must be washed again. There is no need to re-bandage.

The hospitalization lasts one day.
Get someone that he accompanies your return home. Provide for a scarf or a hat and when combined intervention on the eyelids, dark glasses.

In a variable manner, after a temporal lift, may be present:

  • a small bead to the upper skin of the scar temporal.
  • edema (swelling) and bruising (bruises) in the temporal area. These effects disappear within weeks.
  • a feeling of tension in the temples in the early days.

Any intervention may also carry risks of complications. There is very rarely pain, which is then relieved by simple analgesics. Staples are removed between the 8th and 21st day.

Make-up is allowed after 7 days.
The first colouring or permanent is allowed after 4 to 6 weeks.
Control consultations are planned after surgery.
After two to three months, there may be a good idea of the final result.If in the next few years there was an indication for a face lift, a new intervention in the temporal area would not be necessary.

Botulinum toxin injections spaced and regular in the orbital fibers of the orbicularis muscle can maintain longer result in reducing lowering effect of this muscle on the tail of the eyebrow.

Nose surgery

 

La chirurgie du nez ou rhinoplastie

La rhinoplastie est l’intervention qui permet de corriger les défauts esthétiques et fonctionnels du nez.

2 surgery consultations are always made. An anesthesia consultation is required several days before surgery.

Medical photographs sont toujours réalisées. Special X-rays or CT scan are sometimes prescribed.

If the operation is not supported by social security, professional unavailability after the procedure must be provided for, because no sick leave may be prescribed. Depending on circumstances, this period varies from 10 to 15 days.

visage_rhinoplastie_enpratique

 

After Intervention

Surveillance takes place in the recovery room first, then in your room. The nostrils are packed with gauze and you breathe through your mouth for at least 24 hours. The dressing is removed the day after surgery. In some cases, however, it can be maintained for several days.

In most cases, a plaster covers the back of the nose and up to the forehead, where it is attached by a sticky patch. It will be kept in place for 7 to 15 days and removed at the doctor’s office.

Nasal obstruction is common during the early days, and requires frequent washing of the nasal cavity to prevent crusting. The return home takes place either the same evening or the day after surgery. It is recommended that a person is with you when you go home.
The threads placed in the nose are usually absorbable. In some cases, however, there may be other non absorbable threads, which must be removed after 5-15 days.

Usually, during the first weeks or months after surgery, you may find:

  • edema (swelling) and ecchymosis (blue or purple) of the eyelids and face. Of variable importance, they are often asymmetric, and persist for several weeks, and at least 15 to 21 days especially at the tip.
  • edema (swelling) and ecchymosis (blue or purple) of the eyelids and face. Of variable importance, they are often asymmetric, and persist for several weeks, and at least 15 to 21 days especially at the tip. disappearance or decrease of the sensitivity of the nose are almost constant for several months.

Any intervention may also carry risks of complications.

Control consultations are planned after surgery. 6 to 12 months are indeed needed before judging the final result of the intervention.
You must avoid all violent sports for 2 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty can improve the nose and correct potential problems associated with breathing. The goal of rhinoplasty is to achieve a balanced and natural nose in harmony with the rest of the face respecting the patient’s personality. Rhinoplasty can be performed alone or combined with other gestures such as a change to harmonize the chin profile.

At what age can I undergo a rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty can be performed both in women and men from the age of 16.

Will I have any scars?
The scars of rhinoplasty are completely concealed inside the nostrils : this is called the “closed” way. Sometimes an external incision is added to the columella (skin separating the nostrils): this is the “open” way, very useful in case of necessary fine adjustments especially on the nasal tip.
The incisions are closed with thin threads there is no need to withdraw except at the columella. The nasal cavity is packed with gauze during the first postoperative night. As for the plaster, it should be kept from 7 to 10 days.

What is ethnic rhinoplasty?
This type of rhinoplasty is aimed at Afro-Caribbean or Asian patients and consists of an increase in the nasal dorsum by an implant. An additional hidden scar at the base of the nostrils can possibly reduce the size of the nostrils if necessary. Ethnic rhinoplasty does not transform the patient but features are softened by aligning the nose to the rest of the face.

How is the hospital?

Rhinoplasty usually requires an overnight hospital stay.

What is the mode of anesthesia?

Rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia. It can be performed under local anesthesia when isolated treatment of the tip.

otoplastie2

Surgery of prominent ears

 

Les oreilles décollées peuvent être acceptées ou tolérées, en les cachant avec les cheveux. En revanche, c’est parfois plus difficile pour ceux et celles qui portent les cheveux courts, en particulier les hommes. Cette malformation peut générer un complexe et ce dès le plus jeune âge.

L’intervention qui permet d’y remédier se pratique à partir de l’âge de 7 ans, dès lors que l’enfant en exprime le désir.

In practice

The correction of prominent ears ears requires surgery, called otoplasty, which allows:

  • to reduce the angle between the pinna and the skull when it is too important
  • and / or enhance the relief when the cartilage is missing or badly kinked.

This intervention is possible from the age of 7, when the child so desires.

 

Before Intervention

The most important medical instructions are the following : stop taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, or oral anticoagulants within 15 days before the surgery, to reduce the risk of bleeding.

Smoking before and after the intervention is strictly forbidden in order to improve healing.

To reduce the social seclusion, a homeopathic preparation will be required. This treatment should be started several days before surgery and continued a few days later. A specially designed make-up will be prescribed in cases of bruises.

You should wash your hair the day before surgery.

 

Intervention

You are hospitalized the morning of surgery.

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia or under local anesthesia as appropriate.

If the procedure is under general anesthesia, you must be fasting (including water and tobacco).

It lasts about 1 to 2 hours.

visage_otoplastie_enpratique

After Intervention

Surveillance takes place in the recovery room first, then in your room. A bulky dressing, like a helmet, keeps the ears in a good position for the first 24 hours.

The dressing is removed the day after surgery. It aims to compress the protruding areas in the early hours. The ears will then appear swollen, with reliefs masked by edema (swelling). Bruise are sometimes present, that are more or less important. This aspect should not worry if any: it is only temporary and does not compromise the final result. The first shower is allowed the day after surgery and may be accompanied by a shampoo.

The sutures can then stay in the air, and you may wear your glasses. There is no need to re-bandage. But it is essential to always wear a headband over the ears. This headband, which aims to prevent inadvertent turning of the ear, is to keep day and night for two weeks and then only at night for 1 month. Similarly, avoid violent sports for two months or at risk of causing violent trauma to the ears.

The return home takes place either the same evening or the morning after surgery. Get someone that he accompanies your return home.

Pain is quite rare, and is then relieved by simple analgesics.

Exposure to extreme cold is not recommended for at least two months because of the risk of frostbite due to the transient decrease in the sensitivity of the ears. Any intervention may also carry risks of complications. The threads are removed 10 to 15 days after surgery.

Control consultations are planned after surgery. After two to three months, there may be a good idea of the final result.
