"The fight against aging, you lose from the day you were born." Or not ...?

What can be corrected to face and body? And more specifically: to your face or body? We discuss this together during a first extensive consultation followed by a clinical examination. We examine your wishes and propose the possible solutions, with their advantages and disadvantages.

Plastic surgery comprises three components.

Le first one, plastic surgery, deals with interventions aiming at the improvement (beautification) of appearance, such as abdominoplasty, breast reduction, hand surgery.

Reconstructive surgery involves interventions to rectify congenital or acquired malformations, such as scar corrections due to an accident or burns, and reconstructions following cancer surgery.

Aesthetic surgery mainly deals with anti-ageing or rejuvenation surgery such as eyelid corrections, facelift, breast enlargement, liposuction ...

Nowadays, aesthetic surgery attracts much attention due to a growing number of television programmes enhancing its possibilities. These programmes make aesthetic surgery accessible to a larger part of the audience. People find it easier to talk about their problems and are more aware of the possibilities. Men too, seem to find their way to the aesthetic surgeon more and more often.

Obesity and the sometimes dramatic weight-loss following gastric procedures often necessitate plastic surgery to remove excess skin on the tummy, breasts, arms and thighs. Some of these interventions are partly reimbursed by your health insurance.

It is not about the beauty you have, but about the beauty that you desire.
