Non-surgical cosmetic procedures have been gaining popularity in recent years for good reasons. The fillers available and the results obtained, when performed appropriately, are better and better. I believe in fillers as an option, and I offer them and do all the injections myself in my practice. Unfortunately, I see all too many cases where they are used inappropriately. While dermal fillers offer promising results, they are not an alternative to a facelift. If you are looking to address minor early-on signs of aging with a quick, in-office visit, or to maintain the results of your facelift by addressing limited areas, fillers may be right for you. However, the majority of patients concerned about significant aging will see more advantages with traditional facelift procedures.
Injectables can be a tempting option for patients with busy lifestyles. That’s why, as a board-certified plastic surgeon, I pair advanced surgical techniques with the skill and artistry necessary to maximize your results with as little downtime as possible. Today, we’ll take a look at a few reasons you should consider a facelift over dermal fillers.
