The law on cosmetic surgery.

The French government has just finalised measures ensuring cosmetic surgery is now completely covered by the law in order to bring an end to abuses. The new regulations tend to cover the places where such surgery is carried out and establish conditions for procedures so patients can rest assured that the surgeons are skilled and that the proper hygiene rules will be applied.


Before any intervention, the surgeon must provide you with:

- An information sheet and an informed consent form which you must return signed.
- A quote including the surgeon’s fee, the clinic’s costs and the anaesthetist’s fee.
- You have the right to a 15 day “cooling off” period.


This surgery has an IT system for the purpose of :

- Managing patient files.
- Managing the invoicing of procedures.
- Transferring care sheets to social security offices.
The information gathered during your consultation will be saved on the computer system for use by your healthcare professional, unless you raise a valid objection to this.
The healthcare professional treating you will make themselves available to provide you with all this data and any necessary information on the state of your health*.
Any doctor named by you may also be provided with your medical file in its entirety.

Law n°78-17 of January 6, 1978, modified.

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.
