Aesthetic medicine and cosmetic surgery are complementary solutions.
In young or middle-aged patients, aesthetic medicine techniques are generally preferred for treating the first signs of face and neck ageing before opting for surgery.
However aesthetic medicine treatments can also complement surgical procedures to obtain more harmonious results. For example, by improving the skin texture through a peel in addition to a cervico-facial lift, or by treating fine lines with injections and not by surgery.
Finally, aesthetic medicine helps maintain long term results from more invasive treatments performed at an earlier time.
