The Face Lift Procedure with Dr. Sof


Considering a face lift to rejuvenate your facial appearance and restore a more youthful look? Discover what to expect when you choose Dr. Sofiane Rimouche for your face lift journey:

Consultation and Evaluation: Your face lift journey begins with a thorough consultation with Dr. Sof. During this initial meeting, Dr. Sof will listen attentively to your concerns, assess your facial anatomy, and discuss your goals for facial rejuvenation. He will perform a comprehensive examination to determine the most suitable techniques tailored to your needs.

Preparation: On the day of your face lift procedure, you’ll arrive at the surgical facility prepared for your surgery. Dr. Sof and his team will ensure you’re comfortable and relaxed before administering anaesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

Surgical Technique: Dr. Sof will employ advanced surgical techniques to address signs of aging in the face, such as sagging skin, deep creases, and loss of facial volume. Depending on your individual concerns and goals, Dr. Sof may perform a traditional face lift, a mini face lift, or a combination of procedures.

Traditional Face Lift: For patients with more advanced signs of aging, Dr. Sof may recommend a traditional face lift procedure. This involves making discreet incisions along the hairline and around the ears to access underlying tissues. Dr. Sof will then lift and reposition sagging facial muscles and tissues, remove excess skin, and smooth wrinkles to create a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

Closing Incisions and Recovery: Following the procedure, Dr. Sof will close the incisions with sutures and apply dressings as needed. You’ll be closely monitored in the recovery area before being discharged with detailed post-operative instructions. Dr. Sof will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, address any concerns, and ensure a smooth recovery process.

Results: As you heal from the face lift procedure, you’ll begin to notice the rejuvenating effects on your facial appearance. Dr. Sof’s approach and surgical expertise ensure natural-looking results that enhance your features while maintaining harmony and balance.


Important Note from Dr. Sof: While you may observe initial improvements, the full results of your facelift surgery may take a few months as swelling gradually subsides.

Guidance on Return to Activities: Your personalised plan for gradually resuming daily activities will be carefully determined in collaboration with Dr. Sof, ensuring a smooth transition back to your regular routine.


You may choose to undergo a Face Lift for a variety of reasons which are personal to you. These may include:

Facelift surgery can help improve the contours of the face by tightening sagging skin and muscles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, and restoring youthful facial proportions.

As individuals age, the skin loses elasticity and firmness, leading to sagging, deep creases, and folds. A facelift can address these signs of aging, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Many individuals undergo facelift surgery to enhance their self-esteem and confidence by achieving a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Feeling better about one’s appearance can positively impact overall well-being and quality of life.

Unlike non-surgical cosmetic treatments that offer temporary results, a facelift provides long-lasting rejuvenation. By addressing the underlying causes of facial aging, a facelift can offer significant and enduring improvements in facial appearance.
