What is a facelift?
Over the years, the skin loses its firmness. If the skin has slackened so much that the contours of your face are less defined, a facelift could be the solution.
Dr Capi Wever from Praktijk Gabriels has observed three factors that can cause the face to look aged:
At Diana Gabriels Clinic we look at the causes. Our approach is therefore not based on a preference for any particular technique, not on price nor profit, but on reliable knowledge and analysis.
A slackening of the skin and the underlying tissue go hand-in-hand with ageing. You will notice this by the sagging skin around your jawline and in the hollows that have formed at your temples. Facelift surgery is an effective solution for this.
Fat loss sometimes plays a significant role in the ageing process. A facelift operation can partially resolve this. Moving fat from the stomach to the face – mostly in combination with facelift surgery – would, in this case, be advised to achieve optimal results. We call this lipofilling or fat transfer.
Sun or Smoke Damage to the skin
Superficial wrinkles, blemishes and veins will not be improved with a facelift, and, not even by injecting fat into the face. A laser treatment, however, or a chemical peeling would be ideal.
