Facial surgery

A Word from Doctor hayot

An aesthetic plastic surgeon for more than 25 years, I perform minimally-invasive and non-traumatic facelift surgeries to help reverse the effects of aging.

Facelift surgery has evolved over the last fifteen years. In the past, facelifts focused purely on the tightening of loose or sagging skin. However, today’s facelift techniques work deeper by lifting and contracting underlying tissue and muscles under the skin. This facelift technique results in a more natural-looking result.

In my opinion, instead of stretching the skin, a more effective facelift method would be to restore lost volume to the face which has disappeared over time.

THE AGING PROCESS IN STAGES

Genetics play a major role when it comes to the physical ageing of the face.

At 20: the fullness of youth

At this age, the contours of the face are perfect: the forehead is smooth, without expression lines; the eye contour is clear, without any fine lines or circles; cheekbones are high and the face shape is well contoured. Overall, the epidermis is smooth, without any signs of ageing.

At 35-45: the signs of aging begin to appear

The first expression lines appear on the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes. The upper eyelid begins to fall and form a cap. This is often accompanied by the collapse of the eyebrow tail. Volume loss becomes evident around the temples and cheekbones while the tear troughs become more prominent. Nasogenian furrows and peribuccal wrinkles become deeper.
The face shape is not as well-contoured and jowls begin to appear.

At 45-65: volume loss intensifies

Bone structures become visible under the skin, particularly around the tear trough and under the eyes. The fat that has been lost at cheekbone level can lead to a bulge forming at the nasogenian furrow level. Wrinkles around the contours of the mouth start to appear while excess skin sags underneath the eyes, under the chin and at the jowls. Little-by-little, the lower part of the face loses its dermal support structures. The collagen and elastin levels are both depleted.
