Aesthetic treatments

Aesthetic treatments in plastic surgery are manifold. One can distingish aesthetic treatments in sugical and non-surgical ones. Surgical aesthetic treatments can achieve impressive, long-lasting results,  such as eyelid tightening, tightening of bagged eyes, face lifts, neck lifts and breast augmentation, just to name a few.

Non-surgical aesthetic treatments

If you desire however, a more subtle improvement for instance in the appeareance of your face, consider the many safe and effective non-surgical aesthetic treatments. Non-surgical procedures are not lasting and thus need renewal over time. Just as for instance, injections with botulinum toxin or hyaluronic acid or platelet rich plasma need to be renwed after some time.

Non-surgical, so-called conservative treatments such as botulinum toxin injections or filler treatments or PRP (platelet rich plasma) can fight signs of ageing. However, they can never substitute a facelift or an eyelid tightening as their effect is only temporary and does not fight the sagging of our SMAS (Subcutaneous Muscular-Aponeurotic System). The SMAS is a heavy layer which is responsible for the sagging down of the skin in the face. The sagging of our skin in the face can only be resolved by a face lifting.

Choose your plastic and aesthetic surgeon wisely

Your choice of practitioner will directly affect your safety and the quality of your results. For instance, a cosmetician is not qualified and allowed to inject botulinum toxin or hyaluronic acid safely and satisfyingly. Therefore, we recommend to choose your doctor and plastic surgeon carefully. Trusting the wrong practicioner can put your health at risk.

Detailed consultation before any aesthetic treatment

Before any procedure or treatment, a detailed and individual consultation needs to take place.  And the surgeon will explain everything to the patient and to discuss together the most adequate and efficient treatment plan.

Thus, non-surgical aesthetic treaments are an excellent way and method for slowing down the aeging process for some time.
