What happens during a Face-Lift

When you undergo a facelift, the surgeon makes an incision along the hairline and then reattaches it around and behind your ear. Through the incisions, the surgeon has access to the muscles and tissues under the skin. If you want to have the nose and lip fold lifted, the incision continues for a few centimeters. above the ear. With a lift from the jaw and neck area, the incision continues for a few more centimeters. behind the ear. the surgeon carefully loosens the skin from the binding and muscle tissue of the face. the area that is separated is about the same size as the cheek. the plastic surgeon then uses special sutures to tighten the binding and muscle tissue. the sutures are then carefully tightened. during the procedure, the surgeon pulls the skin tight and cuts away the excess skin. the skin is then reattached as inconspicuously as possible. in some cases, the surgeon may decide to place a drain to drain wound fluid. after the treatment, you can often go home after 2 to 6 hours.

The S-lift or mini Facelift

The S-lift is also called a mini-facelift. It is a less invasive operation with small, almost invisible scars. With this facelift you can lift the jawline in a subtle way. How strong the change in the neckline will be depends on the condition of your skin. This operation can already be performed under local anaesthetic. 

The effect of the treatment is visible for an average of 3 years. As with all facial anti-aging procedures, we recommend that you supplement your skin care routine with skin boosters and filler treatments. These treatments stimulate the skin and provide improved skin structure, more elasticity and hydration of the skin's surface.

The MACS-Lift

This mini facelift is more extensive than the S-lift, but still less invasive than a full Facelift, resulting in a shorter recovery period and smaller scars. Our surgeon uses the SMAS method for this lift, which reduces the tension on the skin and results in smaller scars. 
The advantages of a MACS lift:

  • It is an innovative technique that can only be performed by experienced plastic surgeons.
  • Can make you look up to 10 years younger
  • The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia
  • The procedure takes about 2 hours
  • Short recovery period (1-2 weeks)
  • After the procedure a relaxed lifestyle can be continued
  • If the bandage is not an objection, you can work again in 2-3 days
  • Virtually invisible scars thanks to the SMAS lift technique

The result of a Facelift

The optimal result of a Facelift is visible after about a year, depending on the chosen procedure. The scars are then completely faded and the skin and underlying muscle and connective tissue are then completely healed. How long the end result lasts depends on the chosen lift. The result can remain beautiful between 3 years (S-lift) to 10 years (full Facelift). Of course, this is also influenced by the extent to which you take care of your skin and face.   

As with all facial anti-ageing procedures, we recommend that you supplement your skin care routine with skin boosters and filler treatments, which stimulate the skin and improve skin structure, elasticity and hydration of the skin's surface. 

Restoring a facelift

After the operation you will receive a tight band around your head to support the skin, which can only be removed after 24 hours. After a facelift you will suffer from swelling for about 2 to 3 weeks. The recovery period after an S-lift is shorter than the recovery period of a MACS-lift or an extended Facelift. Of course everyone heals at a different pace.

You can walk around again one or two days after the operation, but keep in mind that you need to take it easy for the first week. The surgeon will remove the bandage around the face after a few days. In the first months after the operation you will see small changes in the face every week. The end result will be visible after about 4 to 6 months. The scars will then be barely visible and the wrinkles and lines on the face and neck will be nicely smoothed.

Of course, the way you take care of your skin contributes to a better and longer lasting result, so our advice is to supplement your skin care routine with skin boosters and filler treatments that improve and optimize structure, elasticity, hydration and skin tone. Ask your doctor or our care team about the possibilities.

Safety by precaution

A Facelift involves the same risks as many other operations. Cartilage sometimes tends to bend back to its original shape, so we cannot fully guarantee that the ears will remain completely symmetrical. Although the complications listed below hardly occur, you should consider the risk of them: 

  • The post-op bleeding of the wound.
  • An allergic reaction as a result of medication including anaesthetics.
  • Change of scar tissue.

Risks and complications of a facelift

There may be some complications when performing a Facelift:

  • Hematoma (an accumulation of blood under the skin, this must be removed)
  • Negative reaction to the anesthetic
  • Aftertreatment
  • Infection
  • Change of feeling
  • Permanent scars
  • Damage to underlying structures

"Super customer friendly" 5

After my 45th birthday I noticed that you started to see the hormonal changes in my face. It took a while for me to face it, because I, like all other women, wished to stay as young as possible. After 3 years of doubt I chose for the facelift.

I searched online for clinics and ended up at the largest clinic in the Netherlands. Unfortunately it wasn't done carefully, so after a year I was back to square one. 2 years later I wanted to try again, but at Essential Aesthetics. I was very scared to have another bad experience, but I was helped so personally that I dared to do it anyway. I felt safe, something I didn't immediately feel at the other clinic.
During the consultation Dr. Piombino took the time to understand my worries and situation. He proposed a personal treatment plan: vitamin boosts to tighten my face and ultherapy for the collagen stimulation. After this I went under the knife again for a facelift, neck lift and eyelid correction.
I received an amazing amount of information about the precaution and aftercare. Before each treatment the team called me to see if I had understood everything correctly and was ready for it. It was nice to get this personal support, I was immediately looking forward to the result!
After every operation I had checks on my healing. It wasn't always that easy, but I trusted that the end result would make me happy. When I look in the mirror now, I have a smile on my face. Thanks to the team of Essential Aesthetics I have regained my self-confidence.

"So happy" 5

For a number of years I had been walking with an uncertain feeling and the consideration of undergoing a facelift, as I no longer felt happy with my own face and charisma. Because it was such an exciting decision and procedure for me, I visited the necessary clinics and talked to several doctors. But when I arrived at Essential Aesthetics I immediately felt at ease.

I experienced this feeling of warmth and welcome as soon as I was welcomed. the dressed up cup of coffee and the lady who came to have a nice symphatically reassuring chat, because she already knew what I was coming to get information for. the ambiance and serenity I felt there actually made me feel very relaxed. once at the specialist Luca Piombino, an Italian top doctor who once a month has a week left to carry out his extraordinarily talented treatments, I was so comprehensively and clearly explained what would await me on that particular day and how I would feel afterwards. I immediately planned an appointment and for a month I lay there on the operating table, with the sweat still in my hands, but still full of confidence and the knowledge that I was in good hands. I feel so full of confidence at the age of 52, and receive daily compliments from my loved ones around me that this was done so beautifully, naturally and skilfully, and that I was

"Highly recommend this clinic" 5

As an expat in The Hague, I found it difficult to let myself in the hands of a clinic.
After quite some research, I found Essential Aesthetics. Immediately when I arrived, I felt the warm feeling of the team and the attention for details. The care team specialist took care to explain me the steps of the consult. What I liked is that I have been introduced to the way of working and they explained me the story and the drive behind the company based on which they are working and helping their patients.

Doctor Luca Piombino, took his time to explain me a lot of aspects related to a facelift surgery and made me aware of what I can expect. I could have seen why he had so many good reviews. I was impressed when I heard that he is coming from a family of plastic surgeon and that initially he worked for several.
years as a maxillofacial surgeon helping kids with malformations to have a better life.
I found it unique as well that at this clinic, the doctor is working in a team with another surgeon. It sounds convenient to have 2 specialists for myself when it comes to such a delicate surgery as a facelift. It took me 2 weeks to recover, period in which, the team was very often in contact with me, showing me
The result is absolutely great, and I love to see my fresh look now, a few months after the surgery. I feel like I am glowing again.
What I also wish to share in this review is that the clinic has a whole package integrated in maintaining the result after the surgery with a non-invasive treatment I am going to follow: a HIFU technique based on ultrasound therapy.
