When Surgery is the Right Solution for Facial Aging

Studio shot of a beautiful young woman posing against a gray backgroundWe’ve come to realize that we cannot stop our aging process. Through the ages, humans have developed all sorts of ways to at least slow down its progression. Most recently, research has led to the development of multiple injectable products that can pump up the volume and smooth wrinkles with extraordinary speed. For nothing more than the ease of injectable treatments, many adults easily slip into the notion that surgery is no longer a necessary consideration. This isn’t the case. Here, we discuss how to identify when surgery may be the best option for achieving the results you want. 

What is a Liquid Facelift?

Treatment that focuses on the use of soft tissue fillers and neuromodulators like Botox is often referred to as a liquid facelift. Doctors and nurse injectors can achieve outstanding results using carefully selected products in specific areas of the face, such as the cheeks, eyes, and jawline. Depending on the products included in the injectable treatment, the rejuvenating results may last up to two years. 

The benefits of injectable treatment are obvious. People first choose this route because they don’t need to schedule time off for recovery, do not require prescription painkillers to ease postoperative discomfort, and can see at least some improvement the same day they undergo treatment. Injectables are also pretty accessible in terms of cost, making them more convenient to get than surgery. 

Today’s Facelift Surgery

Facelift surgery has been performed around the world for many years. The perceived downside to a facelift is that it will look obvious. In the early days of this procedure, when surgeons focused more on tightening the skin and superficial tissue, that may have been true in more cases than not. Today, it’s just a lingering misconception. Facelift surgery today gets to the heart of facial aging. It repositions the fatty tissue and muscle that have descended downward from the cheeks so that a more youthful facial shape is restored. Sure, a facelift can achieve more dramatic results than injectables. It can make a person look about 10 years younger versus 2 or 3 years. However, it does not result in an overly-tightened appearance. 

It is a big decision to have a facelift. We understand that. Some of the signs that it may be more appropriate than injectables include:

  • More severe signs of aging
  • Significant tissue laxity has caused a turkey neck, jowls or sagging cheeks
  • The neck could also benefit from some lifting
  • You want more dramatic results
  • You want long lasting results

Facial rejuvenation via surgery has been on the rise. To explore your options, including the Thread Lift, contact us and arrange a visit in Pottsville or Hazleton.
