Frequently asked Questions

Do I have to worry about ugly scars?

Scars appear, but I place these scars in places that are almost invisible. In addition, scars will fade more and more over time.

When will I look normal again?

The first few days after a facelift you wear a bandage around your head. After that, you will have facial swelling and bruising for about two to three weeks. The swelling disappears three weeks after the operation.

Do I no longer have wrinkles at all after a facelift?

Your skin will be lifted, only the wrinkles around the mouth, eyes and forehead will not disappear. This way your face retains its character. Wrinkles from laughing, talking and frowning persist.

Will I get an unnatural appearance after the treatment?

After the facelift, your skin will be tighter, but your facial muscles and tendons are still the same as before the operation. You will still be able to make the same facial expressions and grimaces as before your facelift.

Plastic surgeon

Doctor Xander R. Bakker

I am an experienced plastic surgeon, specialized in cosmetic surgery. I have been working as a plastic surgeon since 2005. For a long time, I have been working as an all-round plastic surgeon in several leading hospitals. Therefore, I have gained a lot of experience. Plastic surgery of the face has always had my special attention.

My work requires a personal and tailor-made approach. This is what makes my work so fascinating. Every time I ask myself: ‘Will I be able to bring a change, which makes the patient happier?’ It is always great when this is possible, but sometimes it also means saying ‘no’.

I focus completely on aesthetic plastic surgery. My areas of interest are the face, breast corrections, liposuction and lipofilling of the face and body. By attending many international conferences and courses I stay up-to-date. This way you can be assured that I always deliver state-of-the-art work.
