Face Lift

A face lift is a procedure that eliminates the excess skin from the face, then lifted and also the muscles tensed, to achieve an aspect of less tiredness, more rejuvenated and younger. This way we also improve the cheekbones, the facial grooves and the wrinkles on the face.

The technique used in our consultation, is a technique that, through incisions that go infront and behind the ear, and with a minor detachment of the skin, only the necessary, we improve substantially the face and the neck. At the same time, we lift all of the structures anchoring the SMAS after the lifting, on top of the cheekbone. With this technique and in aproximately three hours, we obtain an optimum result, with a mínimum hospital stay and mínimum risks.

There exist a series of treatments that are usually associated to a face lift, such as filling with fat, eyelid surgery, eyebag fillers, etc etc.
