There are so many options and procedures available that it’s no surprise most consumers do not know what to pursue. Not only should you research any plastic surgeon you may consult, but you also need to do some homework on the treatment options you might be considering. Potential patients are under the impression that people who choose to have a facelift will appear stretched and tight. It is not true. The truth is, an excellent facelift will not show to others. When a stranger is able to tell that you’ve had facial surgery done, the procedure was not performed well. It is more likely that someone looks young for his or her age if they’ve had a good facial surgery.

Face rejuvenation is a multi-faceted process. Other treatments may be less invasive. Surgery can produce different results than Botox or Fillers. This is why patients often get confused. Surgery is done to move sagging, lax tissue that has fallen due to gravity or aging. Botox blocks nerves. This toxin prevents muscles from reacting to nerve impulses. Because muscles can’t move when they aren’t used, their wrinkles will appear less pronounced. Botox, unfortunately, can give some patients a frozen, unnatural appearance. That is why I don’t use it. The fillers that are used to treat wrinkles can come in a wide variety. They may be injected directly into the skin or around a furrow. Different types of fillers last for different amounts of time, from four to two years.

When patients exhibit signs of facial aging such as wrinkles, furrows or sagging tissues I find that the best results can be achieved by combining skin care with fillers and surgical procedures. It is important to remember that if you omit any one prong, your results may not be the best. Some patients find it difficult to determine which procedures are best for their needs. Patients want to achieve the best possible result with the longest-lasting effect. However, some patients seek shortcuts which are cheaper and have a faster recovery time. Unfortunately, some of the most popular cosmetic treatments do not work over time. However, they can still be very expensive. It is best to seek out a plastic surgeon with experience who has performed at least 20 facelifts in a given year.
