Usually immediately after removing the nasal splint, although the fine-tuning process usually takes several months to over a year, especially if you have thick skin.
Rhinoplasty is generally experienced as a relatively painless procedure.
Depending on your work, we advise you to resume your activities after two weeks.
If there are medical issues, your health insurance may reimburse a portion of your rhinoplasty.
This question is regularly asked when people call in for a consult. The fear of a “visible scar” is on the one hand understandable but is unfortunately also actively fueled in the media. In practice, however, the choice of technique is not particularly important as long as your surgeon is experienced in what he/she does. In experienced hands, the scar from an “open” rhinoplasty is hardly visible and is rarely a source of dissatisfaction. Our advice is: choose your surgeon based on his/her experience, reputation and results, and not on the “technique” of surgery.
Face-neck lift
A facelift is not a painful procedure. There is some discomfort because of the drains, stitches, swelling and poor sleep in the early days of recovery. If you suffer from significant pain, mild painkillers will be prescribed.
That risk is very small when using modern surgical techniques. In fact, it is more likely that you would have hoped for a stronger effect.
During the first 3-4 months after the facelift, your face is still a bit swollen, so the result looks slightly more beautiful than the end result (the so-called “honeymoon phase”). After that, the result of a facelift will be fairly stable for years, depending on physical factors that Dr. Wever will discuss with you beforehand. In (ex-) smokers, those with a lot of sun exposure, those with a thick skin, those with a heavy jawline, people who have lost a lot of weight, and people with a small skull structure, the result of the facelift can sometimes be disappointing. Gaining weight after facelift surgery will potentially provoke relapse.
The effectiveness and durability of a thread lift is of an entirely different order and cannot be compared to a face-neck lift.
Unfortunately, it happens that clients who are referred for a facelift by another clinic have the pricing of that particular clinic in mind when they visit Dr. Wever. This is not correct however. The prices we charge for a facelift do not change if you have been referred by another clinic. Please take a look at our website so that we do not have to disappoint you unnecessarily.
No. You will feel the sting of the initial anesthetic, but the procedure is usually not painful.
Almost immediately, but it takes several weeks to months for the eyelids to look completely natural again.
We recommend resting for a week and not exercising actively after surgery.
Unfortunately, health insurers almost never reimburse blepharoplasty.
Chin augmentation
Chin augmentation is not a painful procedure. You will experience a sore feeling and stiffness of the lower lip.
The result of a chin augmentation is visible immediately. Initially, however, there is still swelling which will make your chin look larger. The end result can be assessed after about 6 weeks.
We usually recommend a “rest” period of 7 to 14 days.
A chin augmentation is not reimbursed by health insurers.
