Who is Dr. Lauri Wauters?
Dr. Lauri Wauters is a Maxillo-facial surgeon specialising in aesthetic, orthognathic and skin cancer surgery. Maxillo-facial surgery is the only medical speciality where the focus is on the entire spectrum of the face.
Making people shine, inside and out, is what she strives for. Using 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 at Skincenters Malle and Brussels. The surgical procedures take place in her practice in Meise.
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 are part of the facial aesthetic practice. Dr Wauters uses them both separately and in combination with surgical procedures, depending on what is needed to achieve the best, most natural-looking results.
Our skin has to endure a lot as we age. It loses its youthful radiance, partly due to a decrease in the substance hyaluronic acid produced by our body. The result? Lines and wrinkles.
Belotero fillers can counteract these signs of natural ageing. The extensive range offers the solution here. Wrinkles are filled, 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, especially the cheeks and jaws.
Belotero® Soft: The gentle solution for correction of fine lines and deep rehydration of 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 the cheeks, chin, jaws, corners of the mouth and at the temples.
Belotero® Lips: full sensual lips. The treatment is specially designed for lip contours and for adding volume to the upper and lower lip.
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 stimulates the production of collagen, optimising the quality of the skin and counteracting signs of ageing. This non-permanent filler fills in the volume and softens deep wrinkles in just one treatment.
The result of this treatment may 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.
- Nose lips-folds
- Marionette lines
- Jaw line and mandibular angle
Botulinum toxin is a natural protein that is used to temporarily relax the muscles. The transmission of impulses from the nerves to the muscles in the skin is blocked, so that these can no longer contract. The functioning of the muscles is temporarily reduced.
The injection of botulinum toxin 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 places such as the armpits. It is also used against migraines. Botulinum toxin reduces the tension in the forehead and the feeling of pressure in the skull and eyes.
- Eyebrow lift
- Crow's feet
- Corners of the mouth
This procedure is aimed at rejuvenating the eyelid. Unless it is a desired change, the shape of the eye does not change. The treatment is usually done under local anaesthetic.
Age causes laxity and wrinkles, vertical sagging of the fat pads and loss in volume of the bones. The excess skin and sagging that occur are easily resolved with surgical repositioning.
Dr Wauters will consider your options. Her honest, expert advice will indicate whether the facelift is possible without surgery or not, in order to achieve the most natural-looking result.
The procedure involves repositioning the deeper layers and pads of fat. Usually, the facelift and necklift are performed in one procedure, but can also be done separately. The procedure is performed under sedation or general anaesthesia.
Ageing causes the eyebrow to sag, resulting in a tired-looking face. The browlift is performed under local anaesthetic, sedation or general anaesthesia. 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.
Every 10 years, our upper lip shrinks by about 1 mm. As a result, the upper lip becomes visibly thinner, there is an imbalance in the face 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 surgical procedure can take place under local anaesthetic or sedation. The result is a fuller appearance without filling.
A rhinoplasty is the preferred surgical approach if you are not satisfied 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 works best for your body. This can be an open or closed approach.
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 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 the tissues, but it also improves their quality.
Frustration and loss of self-confidence are common when it comes to the ears. This can include floppy ears and malformed ears due to piercing or traumatic pulling. During this procedure, part of the ear cartilage is removed or folded over, depending on the problem.
