NATURAL FACELIFT - FACE LIFT - NECK LIFT
A face lift, also known as a facelift, is a surgical method of tightening the facial skin and restoring sagging tissue to a youthful position
Facelift: Facial rejuvenation
They are in the middle of life, are curious and always push themselves to get the best out of themselves. They want to look and feel their age and dazzling.
Wrinkles form on the face with increasing age. The skin becomes thin and wrinkled and the connective tissue begins to follow the force of gravity and sink downwards. Volume, especially fatty tissue, disappears from the face and makes people look older and often very tired, grumpy or ill.
Now is the time when you may feel younger than you look and consider having a facelift. I will be happy to provide you with more information below to ensure that you can make a well-informed decision. However, individual advice can only be given in a personal consultation.
Goals achievable with a natural facelift:
“With me, you never get “just a facelift” using a specific method. It’s about the overall picture and, above all, about your wishes, how you look and what you want to radiate more in the future.”
I would be happy to advise you personally

Basics for a natural facelift
Not an ideal image, but your individual face shape and appearance are the basics that must always be taken into consideration in order to make your face appear harmonious and natural. After all, you don’t want to lose your charisma.
It would be unnatural to want to look at 60 like you did at 40. The goal is to look your best for your age with respect for who you have become. You should remain who you are, but look good, fresh, fit and healthy, and above all natural. This is the aim of a modern approach to facelifting.
Facelift - prevention is better than recovery
The ageing process accelerates between the ages of 40 and 50. It is therefore best to have the treatment carried out around the age of 45. The more advanced the ageing process, the more complex and difficult it becomes to carry out optimization.
The method of face lift / facelift and/or neck lift
Facelifts have been performed for more than 100 years. A very long time in which methods have been developed and refined and important insights have been gained. There are a number of different procedures available for a modern facelift (S-MACS, X-MACS, SMAS-Lift, Mini Lift) but these are either too little or too invasive and people do not appear in public for up to a month afterwards.
In my opinion, Dr. Jaques van der Meulen’s EnBloc face-lifting method offers the best starting point for achieving an optimized, age-appropriate and natural appearance. Unlike traditional methods, the EnBloc method does not just look at one part of the face, but takes a holistic approach. If only part of the face is rejuvenated, this can very often lead to an unbalanced appearance, i.e. a procedure must not ruin the natural balance of a face.
The aims of the EnBloc facelift method are
- Correct your face in a natural way
- Minimize the impact of the intervention
Scars after an EnBloc facelift/face lift/neck lift
One of the reasons why patients recover relatively quickly after an EnBloc facelift and can return to their everyday lives is the incision and relatively small wound areas compared to other methods.
The incisions are kept as small as possible and placed in such a way that they are practically invisible afterwards. Self-dissolving stitches are used so that the healing process is even more comfortable.
If a facelift is combined with an eyelid lift, the incisions are also made in such a way that they are almost invisible afterwards.
As a rule, scars take 3-4 months to fade. During this time, however, scars can be concealed with make-up. It takes up to a year for scars to fully mature and you must strictly protect the scars from UV radiation during this time.

4 steps to a natural facelift / face lift and/or neck lift
Facelift: What you should know about!
How long does the result of a surgical facelift last?
The results of a facelift, a surgical face lift, can last for many years. One facelift per lifetime is usually enough. Some patients also come twice, with usually 10-15 years in between.
The individual result depends on various factors, such as age, genetics, the method used, lifestyle and many more. In summary, however, it can be said that a facelift lasts for many years in the vast majority of cases. But of course the face is subject to a certain ageing process even after a facelift.
Combination facelift & neck lift
Combining a facelift with a neck lift is ideal and is performed very frequently. In most people, these two regions do not age in isolation, but together.
Many people judge the success of a facelift primarily by the appearance of the neck. The combination of a facelift and neck lift can effectively counteract the ageing process.
Combination facelift & forehead lift
In the past, a surgical facelift was almost always combined with a forehead lift. The forehead lift was a thoroughly invasive procedure, which above all led to a significant lifting of the forehead hairline. Usually not a pretty sight!
Nowadays, modern and gentle treatments are used, such as lifting the eyebrows with a thread lift or smoothing the forehead by injecting a wrinkle-smoothing substance.
Facial tightening without surgery
It is also possible to tighten the facial skin and restore volume without surgery. Examples include liquid facelifting and skin resurfacing with our CO2 laser. Both methods – liquid facelift and CO2 laser – have their justification but also their limitations; an individual treatment plan is determined for each patient. I would be happy to advise you personally.
Preparation for a facelift
Before a facelift, we will discuss the following points together in order to positively influence the success in advance and avoid risks:
- General state of health and any illnesses
- The influence of nicotine on the wound healing process. If possible, avoid smoking for 3 weeks before and after surgery.
- Avoid aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs, as these greatly impair blood clotting.
- Previous procedures you have undergone, such as laser treatments, peelings, injection therapies
- Preparations for at home after the operation
The following guidelines apply to all types of facelifts:
You need to take it easy after a facelift. The more you take care of yourself, the faster you will be fit again and can enjoy the results.
- Lie flat so that swelling can subside more quickly. You may need to use a neck pillow to sleep without putting pressure on your ears.
- Do not bend your head far forwards or backwards.
- Mild pain may occur, which you can easily control with prescribed painkillers. Pain usually begins to subside after 24-48 hours.
- Bruising and swelling may occur in the first 1-3 days, peaking after 24-48 hours and gradually subsiding over the following 10-14 days
- Self-dissolving seams are used. As soon as these have dissolved, scar care can be started to ideally support the result.
Risks and side effects
No medical procedure is without risk and this is also the case with a facelift. The risk can be minimized by adhering to the highest standards, constant quality controls and further training. Patient safety is my top priority!
The most common risks associated with a facelift are post-operative bleeding. Wound healing disorders or scarring disorders can also occur. However, this is rarely the case. Nerve damage to the facial nerves is very rare.
Prices/costs for a surgical facelift
A facelift is a complex surgical procedure. The price also depends on whether extensions such as an extended neck lift, forehead or eyebrow lift, an eyelid lift or an additional autologous fat transfer are to be performed. To achieve a reasonable result, you have to reckon with costs starting at € 7,890.

Dr. Roland Resch is available for a consultation by appointment.
Very detailed consultation in which all my questions were answered AND explained very well by Dr. Resch. The operation was painless, I received a call from Dr. Resch on the same day in which he asked how I was feeling (great aftercare). The healing process went just as Dr. Resch had told me before the operation...... The whole team - receptionist, surgery nurse - is VERY nice and explains all the steps that need to be taken before and during the operation....
Great people are doing a perfect job. Many thanks for that
I had my breast done by Dr. Resch, it was before the summer and I am soooooo happy! He suggested the operation with implants and it was really the right decision. Size, shape - everything is great! Everything was explained well and in detail. I was a bit scared and nervous, but I had almost no pain. I could have gone straight back to work, which really surprised me. It healed quickly and I was in the bath and had a hot summer with my new twins! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
I have had liposuction on my hips and thighs. From the first consultation to the 2nd check-up appointment, I was well looked after by the whole team and Dr. Resch and the results are really impressive. I can really only advise everyone to seek help here if they have an aesthetic problem!!!
WOW! I had a thread lift done by Dr. Resch to liften my face and chin line. I am more than thrilled. My husband says: 10 years younger! The advice and clarification were excellent and no questions were left unanswered. Dr. Resch also explained to me exactly what is achievable and what is not. The entire team is very friendly and empathetic. I felt very comfortable. I was able to go home shortly after the treatment. There was hardly any pain. The check-up appointments afterwards, which are included in the price, are also carried out in a relaxed and attentive manner. For me the best beauty doctor! 5 stars!
Dr. Resch lifted my upper and lower eyelids in a single operation. The result is a dream. Dr. Resch gave me incredibly good advice and showed me before and after pictures. He answered all my questions and also asked me in great detail about my ideas in order to harmonize reality and my expectations. My expectations were even exceeded: It's now been 3 months and you can't see the scars at all. Everything is firmer and the bags under the eyes have disappeared. The staff are also extremely empathetic and courteous, and the practice is also very nice. All in all, this doctor can really be recommended! Thanks to Dr. Resch
At the end of last year, I decided to have surgery to remove my gynecomastia, which had bothered me since my youth. I came across Dr. Resch, who made a very professional and emphatic impression from day one. After the initial consultation, I decided to have surgery with Dr. Resch.
The entire procedure, from making appointments, pre-operative information, intra- and post-operative care to follow-up checks, was of the highest standard.
This is where the humanity of Dr. Resch and his team really shines through.
All questions were answered patiently and in detail, even outside the surgery's working hours.
Dr. Resch and the entire team can only be recommended!
As a specialist in plastic surgery and also surgery (this combination is rare to find) he is really highly recommended! He is very nice, competent and responds wonderfully to his patients' problems. What you quickly find very likeable is his down-to-earth attitude - i.e. he is not aloof like so many others in his industry. The support was excellent, his team is very friendly and the appointments are uncomplicated. I can only warmly recommend him and his team! Thanks to him I have a normal everyday life again without massive sweating! Thank you!
I have already had several procedures with Dr. Resch (eyelid lift, liposuction on the stomach and legs) and can only warmly recommend him - and his team! From the professional, empathetic and - in terms of the result - realistic consultation to the procedures in a reassuring, trusting environment, I felt that I was in good hands and very professionally looked after. I was also always very well looked after and advised during aftercare. Thanks to the whole team for the great all-round support!
I was interested in breast augmentation with autologous fat. Dr. Resch explained everything to me very precisely and also told me realistically what is possible. But I already knew from reading on the internet that only a certain amount of size increase was possible, which was completely ok for me. The operation wasn't bad at all, the girdle was a bit annoying. But hold on girls: bigger breasts, fat pads gone! Especially riding breeches and so over the waistband! It really paid off! Can only recommend Dr. Resch and his friendly team!
I had breast reduction surgery with Dr. Resch and it was a fantastic experience. Right from the beginning he lead me through the whole process of preparing for surgery, finally underwent surgery and all went well!!!! I am so happy with the results and finally feel so much lighter! My breasts were such a heavy load for so many years! Healing was also no problem and in the meantime the scars look fine! New breasts, new life! Thank you!
