- Dr. Petit will listen to you in order to understand your discomfort and your expectations relating to your face. In front of the mirror, he will determine with you the areas on your face that you wish to rejuvenate.
- He will analyse your face as a whole in order to suggest the best possible strategy, which will ensure a natural and harmonious result.
- Dr. Petit will sometimes advise you to combine your lift with an upper and/or lower eyelid surgery, even if these ones do not constitute your main unease. Indeed, the beautification of a tired look will sublimate the result of the facelift. However, performing a lift without treating the bags under the eyes will lead up to an undesirable dysharmony between the lower and the upper areas of the face.
- Dr. Petit will provide information on the scar positioning, treatment process and procedure limits, post-operative recoveries as well as main risks, so as to make an informed decision.
