FACE

qode interactive strata

The relaxation of the skin is inevitable with the years, and more or less important according to the lifestyles, the physical hygiene, mental and food. The harmful effect of tobacco on cutaneous trophicity, texture and vascularity is currently known. Genetic factors also intervene to a certain extent; some getting older better than others. We also recognize the importance of the influence of hormonal hormone changes during menopause in the aging process in women. There are different approaches to correct the aging effects of the face that we can analyze here in a progressive way.

Face lift

The facelift: It is the treatment of choice to tighten a face and erase the harmful effects of the terrestrial attraction. Indeed, with the facelift, the cutaneous relaxation is corrected by cutting the excess skin by camouflaged incisions in the pre-, retro-atrial and temporal regions. The principle of retensioning a face is also based on the quality of tension of the musculature of the paucier of the neck (SMAS = superficial musculo-aponeurotic system).

There are several types of facelifts according to the importance of the necessary correction and according to the goal to achieve.

Care before and after the procedure is essential.

The socio-professional activities can be resumed after 2 weeks.

Upper and lower eyelidplasty

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) aims to correct the sagging skin of the upper and lower eyelids. It also corrects the appearance of fat stores located essentially at the level of the lower eyelid, better known as the “bags under the eyes”.

In certain situations, the excess skin of the upper eyelid is due to a ptosis of the brow bone, in which case a suspension of the latter brings a better result.

Blepharoplasty is performed under local anesthesia with mild sedation. The duration of the intervention is 30 to 90 minutes. The stay is ambulatory. The indication for superior blepharoplasty alone or associated with lower blepharoplasty is discussed during the consultation.

Socio-professional activities can be resumed after 1 week.

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty aims to correct rhinomegaly, rhinocyphosis and other unsightly forms. There is the so-called closed technique, without visible scar and the so-called open technique that leaves a scar barely visible on the columella. The latter technique is mainly used in complex corrections that affect the nasal tip or in secondary or even primary rhinoplasty according to the surgeon’s preference.

The procedure lasts about 60 to 90 minutes. General anesthesia is preferred, especially in case of osteotomy (fracture of the nasal bone). The clinic stay is one night. Social and professional activities can be resumed after 1 to 2 weeks.

Otoplasty

The detached ears can be a handicap that is often dragged since childhood.

In case of major discomfort, this procedure is performed from the age of 6 years. However, it is best to wait until adolescence. Ear recollection is an intervention in general child anesthesia and local anesthesia with intravenous sedation in adults.

Duration of the operation: 50min to 90 min.

The week following the procedure, the patient must wear a bandage for 7 days.

BREAST

The beauty of a breast is the result of the convergence of several parameters and criteria.

Volume, shape and consistency are essential parameters for planning breast surgery.

Breast enlargement

Breast augmentation can be done when growth is complete.

To obtain the desired volume, there is a wide variety of breast prostheses. The latter are distinguished by their content, their shape and their surface.

The choice of the form will take into account the peculiarities of the breast, the thorax and the desire of the patient while respecting the harmony of the feminine aesthetic.

Depending on the anatomy, the implant can be placed in front of or behind the pectoralis major muscle.

This procedure requires a scar of about 4 to 5 cm which can be placed in different places:

• Scar at the level of the areola

The periareolar or transareolar route is an elegant access requiring a large enough areola

• Scar under the breast

The inframammary way is an access leaving the scar (4-5 cm) in the groove of the breast

• Scar in the armpit

The axillary pathway is used primarily to put the implant behind the muscle

The choice of the location of the scar depends on the anatomy of the patient but also the habits of the surgeon.

The duration of the intervention is about 1 hour and is practiced under general anesthesia with a night in clinic.

The rehabilitation time is one week and the sport can be resumed after 6 weeks.

Breast reduction

A large breast (hypertrophy mammary) and heavy can be manifested by a physical discomfort during your professional and / or private activities, by back pain (backache) or simply by an aesthetic discomfort.

The technique used is chosen according to the shape of the breast. However, we favor the vertical technique and avoid as far as possible the infra-mammary horizontal scar (“T” inverted).

Important breast reductions (more than 500 gr per breast) can be covered by health insurance, as long as there is no excess weight. General anesthesia is required and the duration of hospitalization is two days / one night.

The resumption of the professional activity is conceivable after 1 to 3 weeks. As for sport, it will be taken over gradually at the end of the 2nd postoperative month.

Breast lifting

The breast pexie aims to “lift” the breasts.

This procedure requires the presence of several scars: around and below the areola and, in some cases, in the inframammary groove.

However, we favor the “L” technique and avoid as far as possible the infra-mammary horizontal scar (“T” inverted).

If needed, a breast implant is used to better fill the breast. General anesthesia is preferred and the duration of hospitalization is two days / one night.

The resumption of the professional activity is conceivable after 1 to 3 weeks.

As for sport, it can be resumed gradually at the end of the 2nd post-operative month.

BODY

Liposuction liposculpture

Liposuction aims to correct localized fat called structural fat (double chin, flank, belly, breeches, inner thighs, knees and ankles, etc.) in a patient who has a weight in Standard. In case of excess weight, it is better to follow a weight loss before any intervention.

There are different techniques:

liposuction by tumescence (infiltration of a solution of anesthetic and diluted adrenaline)
Liposuction with the Microaire® system
ultrasound liposuction
dry liposuction (without infiltration)
Depending on the importance of liposuction, the procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis or require a night in the clinic. The type of anesthesia is determined by the number of areas treated.

We practice liposuction with the American Microaire® system. It is a lipoaspiration technique that uses fine cannulas that vibrate to practice a regular aspiration and less traumatic.

During the days following the operation, a certain number of (blue) echymoses are to be expected, accompanied by pains comparable to muscular aches. After 7 days, it is possible to resume his professional activity. Wearing a lipopanty (sheath) is recommended for a period of 1 to 2 months. The final result is judged after about 6 to 12 months.

Abdominoplasty

This operation aims to correct the sequelae left by one or more pregnancies or by a great loss of weight. The abdominoplasty corrects the excess skin and the possible muscular relaxation of the abdominal belt (diastase of the white line).

The classic abdominoplasty with transposition of the umbilicus requires general anesthesia with hospitalization of 2 nights / 3 days. The removal of the threads is done after the first and second week. Wearing a panty (sheath) is recommended for 2 to 3 months. The professional activity can be resumed after 2 weeks.

The mini-abdominoplasty is a less invasive procedure that is different from the abdominoplasty with a smaller scar. This operation is practiced if the problem of excess skin is located mainly below the umbilicus. The professional activity can be resumed after 1 week.

The scars are discreetly placed in the umbilicus and another scar, low and horizontal or “V” hidden in the panties.

Surgical Skin needling

Skin needling is a dermato-surgical treatment that aims to significantly improve the cutaneous texture. It consists in applying to the area concerned a roller provided with multiple fine needles.

The perforation of the needles causes subcutaneous bleeding generating a cascade of biochemical reaction which has the effect of regenerating the dermis and the epidermis. The results are already visible after a few weeks. Face and body can be treated.

It is not uncommon to associate it with another intervention such as liposuction.

The indications are:

Sequelae of acne
Rides
Stretch Marks
scars
