The history of the Facelift procedure

Screen Shot 2017-08-02 at 18.13.51

It may surprise you to know that the Facelift procedure has been around for over 100 years and with pioneering techniques evolving over the years, the facelift has seen many medical advancements in the search for eternal youth.

We discuss the history of the Facelift and the surgeons who first pioneered it including Bella Vou’s Concept™ Facelift procedure pioneered by Head Surgeon Amir Nakhdjevani.

The historical pioneers of the Facelift Procedure
The desire to recapture a youthful appearance led to the first reported attempt of a Facelift procedure that took place in 1901 which was performed by Eugen Hollander in Berlin. A female Polish aristocrat requested that she would like for him to tighten the skin around her cheeks and corners of her mouth. After much deliberation he attempted the procedure to excise an elliptical piece of skin around the ears, but Hollander only excised skin at the front of the ear and closed the hole; he didn’t lift the area.

Harland Miller 'I Am The One I've Been Waiting For'
Gallery Director Sam Rhodes commented on what people can expect from the show: “Our annual summer group show is always an interesting exhibition, showcasing many talented contemporary artists, each with their own signature style and differing medium and practices. We’ve curated a mix of established and emerging artists, spanning collage, silkscreen prints, neon, oil, acrylic and watercolour paintings, pencil drawings and mixed media. The main thing they all have in common is clearly defined originality. It’s a real treat to have such a concentrated pool of talent in one show.”
