PRP

PRP injections or platelet-rich plasma are a technique involves taking a few millilitres of your blood (with a simple blood test) and centrifuging it during a few minutes. This process allows getting the famous Platelet-Rich Plasma that contains nutrients promoting the natural skin rejuvenation. The platelet-rich plasma fraction can be injected into the dermis of the face, neck, neckline, the back of hands and hair. The result is thicker and suppler skin with fewer wrinkles.
The PRP stimulates hair bulbs and promotes hair growth. Treatment sessions can be repeated every 3 to 6 months.

SCARS POSITION

BEFORE SURGERY

The first consultation with Dr Thomet will allow you to get to know your surgeon, talk about your personal situation and present your expectations. In order to complete your medical record, she will ask about your medical history, previous operations you may have had, and the list of medicines and allergies.
A physical examination will be carried out with measurements and sometimes photos that will remain confidential and only used for your medical file. At the end of the consultation, Dr Thomet will make a diagnosis and tell you if you are a good candidate for surgery. She will explain to you the contemplated surgical procedure, scar positions, the recovery time and the risks of complications.
After you have had time to think it over, a second consultation will be scheduled, in order to answer your questions and set a surgery date.
An ophthalmological check-up is required before any surgery.
