About our facelift doctors

We work in the clinic where the MACS facelift was invented. It’s a state-of-the-art, bespoke facility which is only used for facelift surgery.

We are fully registered with the British General Medical Council, the Royal Dutch Specialist Register and the Royal Belgian Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Drs. Vermeulen and Van den Berge consult in London, Paris, Brussels and via Skype. 

Who we are

Dr Pieter Vermeulen and Dr Stefaan Van den Berge specialise in the MACS (Minimal Access Cranial Suspension) facelift technique. All other surgeons worldwide who use the MACS technique for facelifts have learnt it from our clinic. Our surgical team has the most experience at performing the MACS facelift in the world. 

Drs. Vermeulen and Van den Berge have performed over 1000 MACS lifts. Drs. Patrick Tonnard and Alexis Verpaele also operate at the clinic. For an operation and prices with Dr Tonnard or Dr Verpaele please email us at info@facelift-doctor.com. 

Dr Pieter Vermeulen



Dr Pieter Vermeulen is registered with the British General Medical Council, the Royal Dutch Specialist Register and the Royal Belgian Society of Plastic Surgeons.

He got his training as a physician and surgeon at the University of Leuven in Belgium. He specialised later at the Erasmus hospital in Rotterdam. He works with Dr Stefaan Van den Berge, Dr Patrick Tonnard and Dr Alexis Verpaele in Ghent in restorative and aesthetic facial surgery where he performs the well-known MACS lift.

Dr Vermeulen also specialises in aesthetic genital surgery. For this, he sought additional training with Dr Gary Alter in Beverly Hills, California. In this domain Dr Vermeulen performs labia reductions in accordance with the new V-technique, modifications of the clitoris (excess skin around the clitoris, clitoral reduction, clitoropexie) and secondary surgery of the labia after previous corrections. Also liposuction of fat deposits on the mound or Injecting fat of the labia majora are performed.

Also Dr Vermeulen has a special interest in skin corrections of the belly and breasts after pregnancy, through both surgical and non-surgical methods. 

Dr Stefaan Van den Berge


Dr Stefaan Van den Berge is registered in the Netherlands in the BIG register and is recognised as a plastic surgeon by the RGS (Registration Committee Medical Specialists).

He graduated as a medical doctor at the University of Leuven. He then spent two years as assistant general surgeon at the AZ Sint Jozef in Mortsel and returned afterwards to the UZ Leuven for his training as a plastic surgeon.

In Leuven he did his first two years of scientific research on tissue engineering of the skin, with a grant from the FWO (Fund for Scientific Research). This is especially useful for surgery with the body's own tissue (such as the liposuction technique accompanying the MACS lift at our clinic).

After his admission as a plastic surgeon, Dr Van den Berge began a comprehensive fellowship in aesthetic facial surgery (with an emphasis on MACS facelift and liposuction of the face), followed by an additional fellowship in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery of the nose in Leuven.
