« You Have To Be Good-Looking To Succeed ? »

Dr. Sylvie POIGNONEC co-written with Marie-Pierre SAMITIER ; Health Journalist France 2 - © Boîte À Pandore (La) Publishing | 2015

What is the job of a plastic surgeon ?

have been a plastic surgeon for over twenty five years. The follow-up of a patient begins with the first consultation: people of all ages come to see me to treat malformations (protruding ears, for example), or for rejuvenation, face-lifts, or laser treatment. So I have a rather varied clientele. When I receive them, I try to discuss their project with them. Then, in the operating theatre, I perform the operation (rhinoplasty, eye rejuvenation, liposuction, etc.) and then I examine them to check that everything has gone well. At the practice, I perform treatments: this is the aesthetic medicine part. At the hospital (Pitié-Salpêtrière), once a week, I treat more serious pathologies such as skin cancers or facial paralysis due to accidents.

What are the different operations I perform ?

Breast prostheses are in great demand at the moment. I also perform rhinoplasty (or nose surgery), liposuction, eyelid surgery, facelift, breast reduction, protruding ears, and many others.

What are the trends and innovations ?

At the moment, it is genital surgery (lip reduction or injections for menopausal women). There is also cryolipolysis (fat treatment to reduce fatty deposits), with very interesting results: it is an alternative to liposuction for both young and older women. Even if it is more complicated after 60 years of age, because the skin becomes looser.

Which operations are most in demand according to age ?

Among young people, rhinoplasty and breast augmentation are the most popular procedures. Young girls generally wait until they are 18-19 years old. In children, it is the operation for protruding ears: this operation is started from the age of 8.
