DR. L-Ph. Dombard
All that can be done under local anesthesia.

ou must operate, but not create sequelae. It is necessary that the hair does not retreat, that the ear does not leave forward, that the lobe is not deformed, that there is no tension. For a facelift to be visible, we must not see the after-effects. There is facelift and facelift …
(..) In general, the follow-up is at least six months. We have an interest in operating perfectly! It is an obligation of quality.
