With so many facial rejuvenation options available, determining which procedure will best address your personal cosmetic concerns can be a challenge. Should you go the nonsurgical route with dermal fillers and other injectables? Would a mini facelift be better, or would a facelift give you the results you want? For my Roanoke patients from Lynchburg, Blacksburg, and Charlottesville, the options can be confusing at first glance.
In this blog post, I will review the various facial rejuvenation options available, and explain their benefits.
What is the best nonsurgical facelift?
Many of our patients at Aesthetic Surgery of Virginia have turned to nonsurgical methods of achieving a younger appearance, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM®, and Radiesse®. These injectables can smooth fine lines and wrinkles, targeting areas on the brow, around the eyes, and around the mouth.
What is a mini facelift?
For those who have some excess or sagging skin around the jawline, a mini facelift often proves to be an excellent option. This procedure tightens the jowl region while still allowing you to return to your daily activities the very next day.
A mini facelift:
- Requires minimal downtime
- Creates a shorter scar than a full facelift
- Receives high satisfaction ratings from patients
When is a facelift the best option?
However, if you are seeking a truly comprehensive facial rejuvenation, there is no substitute for a facelift.
Facelift surgery remains the most effective technique for targeting the:
- Corners of the mouth
The procedure’s particular benefits also include lifting the cheeks while simultaneously eliminating excess fat and skin from the face and neck. The transformation provided by a facelift is often significant and can dramatically reverse many of the common visible signs of aging.
Facelifts are so effective at reversing some of the signs of aging that they earn a “Worth It” rating on RealSelf.com from facelift patients.
Revisit our blog in the coming weeks for a follow-up blog post about facelift surgery. In the post, I’ll elaborate on the facelift process, from the first consultation to what to expect during recovery.
