FACE AND NECK LIFT Rhytidectomy
Face and Neck Lift in Geneva.
This procedure is designed for patients who have started to notice jowling and sagging of the face and neck.
The aim of the procedure is to obtain harmonious rejuvenation without altering natural expression. To achieve this, Dr Raspaldo focuses on relocating tissue to its natural position, restoring a firmer, more youthful appearance without an unnaturally “tight” look.
Surgery is performed either under local anaesthetic with sedation administered by injection or under general anaesthetic and takes 2 to 4 hours to complete.
Incisions are almost totally concealed within the hairline and inside the ears.
OVERVIEW OF THE PROCEDURE
Careful questioning during the first consultation is essential to help the surgeon identify the patient’s expectations. The doctor will then take the time to explain what will happen during the operation and talk through every aspect of the procedure with the patient.
Each patient is provided with an information pack, a price quotation and a consent form (as is standard for every Rhinoplasty, Otoplasty, Genioplasty and Liposuction procedure).
Patients must undergo a pre-operative medical check-up and consult an anaesthetist a few days prior to the procedure (at latest, 48 hours before the operation).
A face and neck lift can be performed as an out-patient procedure with active surveillance. However, an overnight stay is generally required.
Any bruising and swelling will usually subside within 2-4 weeks. The face will look less puffy after the first week.
Stitches will be removed around six days to two weeks after surgery.
Scarring can be concealed with make-up and will gradually fade in the 6 to 12 months following the procedure. Patients with skin that is prone to keloid formation or hypertrophic scars may experience some permanent scarring.
Final results are apparent after approximately 12 months and will last around 10 years.
The result can be maintained and prolonged for several years beyond that by using complementary cosmetic procedures using gentle techniques involving dermal fillers (Juvéderm Ultra®, Voluma®, Restylane®), botulinum toxin, Chemical peels, Carboxytherapy, Laser,
