Breasts

(Local anesthesia with sedation)

1. Should I choose prostheses filled with saline solution or prostheses filled with cohesive silicone gel?

The final choice will depend on your personal shape and what your expected results are. Our highly skilled surgeons will provide you with all the information necessary to make an informed choice.

2. I’ve heard that prostheses last for 10 years. Is this true?

While it is true that the prostheses have a limited shelf life, it is difficult to predict exactly how long they will last. It will be necessary to replace prostheses after a certain amount of time.

3. If one of my prostheses breaks, is it dangerous?

No. The contents of the prostheses, regardless of the type, are not toxic or harmful to the body.

4. Must I absolutely have a breast lift if I have breast augmentation?

No. A breast lift is not necessary in all cases. A breast lift is performed in combination with breast augmentation when a patient’s bust is too low.


Body

(General anesthesia: Abdominoplasty / Local anesthesia: Liposuction)

5. Will cellulite on the thighs disappear with liposuction?

Liposuction helps soften cellulite found in undesirable places but it will not cause it to disappear. Liposuction allows for excess fat to be sucked away to reshape the silhouette. The only ways to lose weight and eliminate cellulite are by following a healthy diet and practicing physical exercise.

6. Should I go on a diet before having liposuction performed?

This decision will be made by your surgeon as an excess of fatty deposits can bring about disappointing results. Your surgeon may therefore ask you to lose weight or propose another alternative to maximize your desired results. Liposuction is not a weight-loss method.

7. In the case of obesity, is liposuction beneficial?

No. Liposuction is not a weight-loss method. In obesity cases, other methods are recommended.


Face

(Local or General anesthesia)

8. Can I undergo a facelift at the same time as blepharoplasty?

Yes, it is possible to combine the two surgeries during the same operation to obtain the expected results.

9. Where are the incisions made during a facelift?

Normally, incisions are made in the scalp at the level of the temples and the nape of the neck as well as around the ears. This way, following healing, scarring is less noticeable.

10. I am a smoker with wrinkles on my upper lip. Can a facelift help remove them?

If the problem is limited to the upper lip, we recommend Jevederm or Botox for better results. These products are specifically made to reduce wrinkles.

11. Does blepharoplasty bring immediate results?

Yes. Results are noticeable on first sight. It should be noted that some blue bruising will be present following surgery but this disappears after a few weeks.

12. Will I have a noticeable scar following rhinoplasty?

It all depends on the type of surgery and its intensity. Your surgeon will be able to provide you with precise details.


Bariatric

13. What is the waiting time to undergo bariatric surgery in a private hospital?

If you wish to have your operation in a private hospital or clinic, the waiting time is approximately 4 to 6 weeks.

14. How long will I stay in hospital following surgery?

For laparoscopic gastric bypass or a gastrectomy, the client can leave the hospital on the morning of the second day following surgery.

15. Why I am experiencing regurgitation?

Regurgitation is caused by the small size of your new stomach which can cause heartburn as well as indigestion. These symptoms are normal. Nevertheless, if regurgitation persists beyond six months following surgery, please contact your surgeon.
