Facelift Vs. Minimal Invasive

Posted: 3:35 p.m. Friday, May 8, 2015

By Anita Mandal, M.D.
Question: I am 72 and prefer to avoid surgery. For my lip and chin wrinkles, deep smile lines, droopy mouth corners with sagging, hollow cheeks, a plastic surgeon advised Botox, fillers and laser. With so many different treatments, would I be better off just getting a facelift?

Answer:While it would be nice to treat all your wrinkles, sagging and hollowing with a one procedure, I don’t know of a single procedure that corrects all of those problems. Twenty years ago, facelifts, which mainly lift and tighten facial sagging, were the main option. Treatments for wrinkles and facial hollows were few.

Nowadays, numerous options exist, many of which are non-surgical. Botox and fine-line fillers can soften wrinkles. Deeper fillers can improve smile lines and droopy mouth corners. Infini can tighten sagging skin. Facial volumization, a latest advance for treating hollows, can be done with safe, long-term fillers like Bellafill rather than invasive surgical implants.

While cosmetic procedures are no longer limited to surgery, in-depth knowledge and expertise in both surgical and aging anatomy is key to natural looking, effective results. Facial Plastic Surgeons are specifically and extensively trained to address concerns on the aging face. Why even consider a non-specialist, who is not board certified in facial plastic surgery, when it comes to your face?
