Bella Vou’s very own cosmetic surgeon, Mr Amir Nakhdjevani has developed a revolutionary local anaesthetic facelift known as the ‘Concept™ Facelift’.

How does the Concept™ Facelift compare?

The Concept™ facelift is suitable for men and women who wish to reduce sagging in the lower face and regain a more natural, rejuvenated appearance. The procedure is less invasive than a traditional facelift and there is less scarring, bruising and swelling for a significantly quicker recovery period.

Is this right for me?

Age is not a factor for this kind of surgery. If you have lax facial skin, lost volume and feel that you have jowls and wrinkles on your cheeks and you look tired when you're not then the concept facelift can help improve your appearance. With concept facelift you will look natural and fresh just like the way you feel inside. There are no bandages, drains and hospital stay but with lasting results of traditional facelift techniques it fits with today's age.

Our consultant Plastic Surgeons will see you at consultation and address your concerns and can provide you with information about which surgery is best suited to the look that you want to achieve.

What the procedure involves

Concept™ Facelift is a cutting edge facelift surgery performed under local anaesthetic with a short scar that runs in front of the ear and ends behind the ear. It addresses the cheeks by lifting them back to their original position, removes the jowls, smoother skin of the cheeks and defines the jawline. The SMAS lift (muscle tightening) is performed to allow longevity and the final result is a natural fresher looking you.

All the sutures we use are absorbable leaving a fine line scar that will fade making the scar hardly noticeable. This facial cosmetic surgery will last about 2 hours and can be combine with other local anaesthetic facial surgery such as eyelid lift, lip enhancement, fat transfer, neck liposuction and neck lift to achieve a harmonious balance to your face.
