Facelift – Look younger and radiant
As you age, your skin loses its elasticity. Your skin may begin to sag, and wrinkles may develop. If you are bothered by this, a facelift is an option for you. This reduces wrinkles, crow’s feet and sagging cheeks so that you look young and radiant again. Dr Schiettecatte specializes in facelifts and will gladly discuss your wishes and the possibilities. He is your treating plastic surgeon at Clinic Veldhoven. Ask for your consultation with Dr Schiettecatte now.

Various facelift techniques
There are different techniques to make your face or neck look younger again. You can choose from different techniques: the Eric Auclair lift, the MACS lift, the mini-facelift or the forehead lift. Dr Schiettecatte will gladly advise you on this during the consultation.
Eric Auclair lift
Dr Eric Auclair is an authority in the field of facelifts. He developed his own technique (the ‘French Touch’), which ensures an especially natural result. The Auclair facelift is often used to remedy hamster cheeks and to lift the neck.
MACS stands for Minimal Access Cranial Suspension and provides smoother skin around your cheeks and a tighter jawline. Through a small incision, in front of your ear up to your hairline, the underlying tissues are lifted with a suture. Your excess skin is removed, and then your incision is carefully sutured. The MACS lift is popular because of the short treatment time and the fast recovery. Moreover, this treatment leads to fewer scars, and the procedure can be performed under local anaesthesia.
The mini-facelift is also called the S-lift. With a mini-facelift, only your sagging skin on your cheeks and under the jaw line is treated. Your forehead and neck are left alone. The mini facelift is a popular treatment because the procedure is far less drastic than the classic facelift. The plastic surgeon removes a narrow strip of skin in the form of an S on both sides of your face, in front of your ear. The procedure is done under local anaesthesia.
With a forehead lift, you can correct a tired or worried expression, caused because your eyebrows are sagging or lowered. In combination with an eyelid correction, your face takes on an energetic, fresh and ‘open’ appearance.
This is the most extensive facelift treatment. Your entire face, from your hairline to your neck, is treated by the plastic surgeon. With a classic facelift, the plastic surgeon stretches a deep tissue layer in the direction of your hairline. The incision runs along the hairline and natural folds, so that it is barely visible. Depending on your wishes, the surgeon may make a second incision under the chin. A classic facelift takes a few hours and is done under general anaesthesia. Contact us for more information.
Facelift with lipofilling
Each facelift can be combined with lipofilling. With lipofilling, Dr Schiettecatte uses your own adipose tissue to give more contour and, if necessary, to fill in deeper wrinkles, such as for example the nostril fold and the cheekbones.
When the skin on is your neck sags a great deal, a neck lift can be a solution. With the ‘SMAS’ facelift technique, Dr Schiettecatte treats your neck. You can read more about this here.
The liquid facelift is the facelift without surgery. With this treatment, Dr Schiettecatte uses fillers and injectables that temporarily give your face a more youthful look. The treatment takes just 30 minutes, and you see immediate results, which remain visible for about a year. You can read more about this here.
