Face lift

Face lift

The facelift aims to rejuvenate the face, without changing the basic features of the face. The main reason for looking for this procedure is usually the sagging of the lower jaw, which accentuates the wrinkles around the mouth, and gives a sad and tired look, completely changing the facial expression with which we communicate with others and see each other. to the mirror.

Usually, people who go for a facelift will have already done some basic aesthetic treatments, such as botulinum toxin and hyaluronic acid fillers, but either because of the results that can no longer disguise aging or because they want more lasting results, the solution is to move forward with a facelift.

This surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia with sedation, the main technique being that of SMAS (a deep lifting, which is not limited to “pulling” or stretching the skin) which are completely outdated concepts, being increasingly out of use in more developed countries.

Doctor Tiago Baptista Fernandes has been dedicating more and more time to developing this procedure through specific courses, training given by himself, and presentation of clinical cases among peers. He is already a world reference, with lectures in New York, Miami, and Paris, among others. This being the surgery that most transforms people’s lives and causes a greater increase in the self-esteem of its patients is clear and is carried out with extreme dedication. Through this specialization, Dr. Eduardo Matos and Dr. David Rasteiro naturally have intense training in this surgery, considering the facelift as their surgery of choice in facial rejuvenation.

Another technique widely used by surgeons is the lipoestaminal Facelift ® which consists of using the person’s fat, which after centrifugation is added to plasma, rich in growth factors and stem cells, achieving a Lipostaminal Facial Rejuvenation.



The facelift is a surgical procedure lasting 3.5 to 6 hours and is performed under local anesthesia with sedation.
