Who is Dr. Lauri Wauters?

Dr. Lauri Wauters is a Maxillo-facial surgeon specializing in aesthetic, orthognathic and skin cancer surgery. Maxillofacial surgery is the only medical specialty where the focus is on the full spectrum of the face. Making people shine, inside and out, that’s what she strives for. By means of meticulous facial analysis she wants to achieve results that look as natural as possible. From now on Dr. Wauters will be available for various surgical and non-surgical procedures. The non-surgical procedures take place in Skincenters Malle and Brussels. The surgical procedures take place in her practice in Meise.

Intake

Nothing is more important than for patients to feel at ease. That is why Dr. Lauri Wauters always takes the time for an initial consultation. By starting a conversation she wants to find out what the patient’s expectations and concerns are. The general analysis of the face is intended to achieve optimal results together. Non-surgical procedures Non-surgical procedures are part of the facial aesthetic practice. Dr. Wauters uses them both separately and in conjunction with surgical procedures, depending on what is needed to achieve the best, most natural-looking results.

Belotero fillers

Our skin has to endure a lot as we age. It loses its youthful appearance, partly due to a decrease in the substance hyaluronic acid that is produced by our body. The result? Lines and wrinkles. Thanks to Belotero fillers, these signs of natural ageing can be counteracted. The extensive range offers the solution here. Wrinkles are filled, the facial volume is restored and the skin is rehydrated. All these products can be used on their own or in combination. Belotero brings an aesthetic solution with natural looking results.

The Belotero range:

Belotero® Revive: rehydration of the skin for skin rejuvenation. This treatment is used for the face, particularly the cheeks and jaws. Belotero® Soft: the gentle solution to correcting fine lines and deeply rehydrating the skin. The treatment is suitable for fine lines around the mouth, crow’s feet, forehead lines and light frown lines. Belotero® Balance: the best choice for correction of moderate to deep wrinkles. Its complete absorption by the skin improves frown lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, lip contours and moderate lines around the mouth. Belotero® Intense: the ideal filler for natural-looking results. This treatment is recommended for nasolabial folds, marionette lines, lips and corners of the mouth. Belotero® Volume: Powerful restoration of facial volume, including cheeks, chin, jaws, corners of the mouth and at the temples. Belotero® Lips: full sensual lips. The treatment is specially designed for the lip contours and to add volume to the upper and lower lip.

Radiesse

Collagen gives our skin its volume, flexibility and resilience. As we age, our skin’s natural collagen breaks down. This causes wrinkles and facial lines to appear. Radiesse provides a stimulation in the production of collagen, optimizing the quality of the skin and counteracting signs of aging. This non-permanent filler fills in volume and softens deep wrinkles in just one treatment. The result of this treatment can last for a year or even longer. The duration of the effect may vary from person to person and depends on age, skin type, indications, lifestyle, metabolism and the area treated. Treatment areas:
  • Cheeks
  • Nose lips-folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Jaw line and mandibular angle
  • Chin
  • Hands

Botox

Botox is a natural protein used to temporarily relax muscles. The transmission of impulses from the nerves to the muscles in the skin is blocked, preventing them from contracting. The functioning of the muscles is temporarily reduced. The injection of botox not only relaxes the muscles, but also blocks the action of the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. This prevents the production of sweat in areas such as the armpits. In addition, it is used against migraines. Botox reduces the tension in the forehead and the pressing feeling in the skull and eyes. Treatment areas:
  • Forehead
  • Eyebrow lift
  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown
  • Corners of the mouth
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Jawline
 

Surgical interventions

Eyelid correction

This procedure is aimed at rejuvenating the eyelid. Unless this is a desired change, the shape of the eye does not change. The treatment is usually done under local anaesthetic. Facelift As a result of age, laxity and wrinkles develop, vertical sagging of the fat pads and loss in volume of the bones. The excess skin and sagging that take place are easily resolved with surgical repositioning. Dr. Wauters will look at your options. Her honest, expert advice will indicate whether the facelift is possible without surgery or not, to achieve the most natural-looking result. The procedure involves repositioning the deeper layers and fat pads. Usually the facelift and neck lift are performed in one procedure, but can also be done separately. The procedure is done under sedation or general anesthesia.

Browlift

Aging causes a sagging in the eyebrow, resulting in a tired looking face. The browlift is performed under local anesthesia, sedation or general anesthesia. The treatment involves making small incisions behind the hairline to avoid visible scars. After undermining the tissues, the brow is lifted and attached to the bone for permanent fixation.

Liplift

Per 10 years our upper lip decreases with approximately 1 mm. As a result, the upper lip becomes visibly thinner, an imbalance in the face takes place and the upper teeth are covered when smiling. The procedure restores the youthfulness of the upper lip and the balance of the facial features. A strip of skin and muscle is removed from under the nostrils on the inside of the nose. The muscle is lifted and attached to the bone of the upper jaw. The surgery can be done under local anesthesia or sedation. The result is a fuller appearance without filling.

Rhinoplasty

A rhinoplasty is the preferred surgical approach when you are unhappy with your nose or have medical problems, such as difficulty breathing. After a careful analysis of your anatomy, Dr. Lauri Wauters determines which rhinoplasty technique will work best for your body. This can be an open or closed approach. Orthognathic surgery Orthognathic surgery ensures facial harmony by adjusting the upper and lower jaw and chin. An imbalance in the face can also affect health. Think of problems with chewing, damage to the joints and premature tooth loss.

Lipofilling

Lipofilling is just a minimally invasive technique that uses one’s own fat tissue to add volume. The fatty tissue that is removed during liposuction is purified and injected elsewhere in the body. Not only does this restore tissues, but it also improves their quality.

Ear correction

Frustration and loss of self-confidence is common when it comes to ears. This can include floppy ears and malformed ears due to piercings or traumatic pulling. During this procedure, a portion of the ear cartilage is removed or folded over, depending on the problem. Do you feel insecure about your face? Would you like to turn back the clock a few years?
