The French lift is a procedure perfected by Dr. Philippe Bellity.

It provides a real solution to sagging cheeks and jowls and is as non-invasive as possible. The procedure is carried out in the clinic under a local anaesthetic and really rejuvenates the face while completely respecting the integrity of the personality. A light anaesthetic (sedation) can also be given if the patient wishes.

This technique is aimed at women whose faces are showing the first signs of ageing. At last there is an alternative for those who refuse to have a face lift but who do not want to let their faces sag.

Basically, it involves a small incision near the ear and in the ear, hidden by the hairline. This means the cheek and jowl can be separated and the sub-cutaneous fatty and muscular structures lifted, giving a natural and lasting result without the skin looking stretched.

The down time simply involves a little swelling and bruising, lasting a week. The result is all the more natural because it does not alter the face’s expression at all – it simply restores it to how it looked five or 10 years earlier.



The FRENCHLIFT ® was invented by Dr. Philippe Bellity who has been working on minimally invasive solutions for years. It is aimed at men and women experiencing the first signs of sagging jowls and has become, over the last few years, the alternative to a facelift. FRENCHLIFT ® offers many advantages : it is very effective in lifting the cheeks and jowls and recreating the oval line of the face. It respects the entire personality of the face without stretching the skin excessively or deforming the mouth. Scaring is kept to a minimum, and the scars are hidden inside the ear and at the side of it, the recovery period is much shorter (about a week. The results last as long as a classic facelift.



Dr. Bellity is equipped with the new innovation by Urgo laboratories, UrgoTouch : A unique laser technology for all those who want a more beautiful scar after their surgery cosmetic surgery. Treatment of the scar with the UrgoTouch laser is performed in the operating room at the end of the procedure once the surgical suture is complete. Still under anesthesia, you will not experience any pain.
