DOCTOR PHILIPPE KESTMONT, FACE AND NECK SURGEON IN NICE OFFERS YOU DIFFERENT TYPES OF FACELIFT
The term “facelift” is often associated with the treatment of facial wrinkles, which is partly wrong. We distinguish several types of facelifts, depending on the area of the face concerned. They all have in common the treatment of the “relaxation” of the tissues of the face, including the eyelids, and the neck.
Repositioning the structures that have relaxed will have a positive effect on certain wrinkles, but will be ineffective on most wrinkles around the eyes, nose or lips, the treatment of which will be developed in the medical treatment sections.
TEMPORAL OR DUMMY FACELIFT
This technique corresponds to the treatment of the lateral region of the eyebrow. Classically associated with Botox, it allows to reposition the drooping eyebrow with a mini-incision hidden in the hair, sometimes with the help of video surgery.
PRINCIPLE OF AGEING
Ageing of the “skin envelope” is characterised by thinner, wrinkled skin in the region of the facial openings such as the eyes, nose or mouth. The fat in the face migrates away from these openings to the jowls (thus breaking the oval line of the face) and under the chin (giving the classic double chin).
This applies to both Women and Men…
FRONTOTEMPORO-FACIAL COMPLETE FACELIFT
Today these practices are reserved for reconstructive surgery after accidents or malformations.
The current trend is to combine simpler techniques and injectables such as Botox and Hyaluronic acids…
This is what Doctor Philippe Kestemont, face and neck surgeon and injection specialist, offers.
CLASSIC CERVICAL-FACIAL FACELIFT
This technique will correct the contours and volumes of most of the face. This facelift technique which “protects the skin” allows for longer lasting, more natural results, with shorter scars and therefore much simpler post-operative follow-up.
The resumption of social life should be possible partially during the first week and completely after 15 days of treatment.
This type of facelift is proposed by Doctor Philippe Kestemont, a specialist in cosmetic surgery of the face and neck.

The maintenance of a facelift is systematic to keep the benefit of the intervention. Medical techniques such as injectables, lasers, peelings, mesotherapy all have their place and will be proposed according to the type of skin and ageing.
Even simplified, a facelift is a surgical procedure to be performed in an approved surgical clinic, offering optimal conditions of medical safety. The complications of facelifts are specific to each technique and each type of patient and must be systematically discussed with the surgeon.
