Is a facial operation reimbursed by my insurance?
An upper eyelid correction is sometimes reimbursed by your insurer; the other treatments with which Dr Schiettecatte can help you are not.
Does a facial operation hurt?
No, the operation takes place under anaesthesia. After the operation, you will at most have some trouble eating, and you can experience some pressure.
How long does the result stay nice?
Eight to ten years.
Will I have scars from the operation?
Yes. Dr Schiettecatte will, however, place them wherever possible in a place that is not visible, or make them almost invisible. Small scars on the face can be carefully camouflaged with some make-up two weeks after surgery and with a completely closed wound. After about six months, the scars have faded so much that this will no longer be necessary.
Do you use staples or stitches? What do you base that choice on?
Staples are only used to seal wounds in the hairy scalp zone. They are easier to remove and do not leave visible scars.
What kind of material is a chin implant made of?
A chin implant is made of silicone and is available in three different sizes. Dr Schiettecatte determines together with you which size best suits your face and wishes.
Can an implant move under my skin?
No. You can sometimes feel the edges of the prosthesis.
What does it cost?
Very good experience!
