People hoping to take years off their look often turn to either dermal fillers or a facelift at my Orlando, FL, facial plastic surgery practice. Each of these approaches offers its own list of benefits, but how do they really compare in terms of results?
- Fillers. For people with mild to moderate signs of aging, fillers often make quite a difference in terms of facial rejuvenation. There is a reason this approach is called a nonsurgical facelift or “liquid facelift.” Hyaluronic acid fillers such as JUVÉDERM® add volume to the cheekbones, fullness to the lips, and structure to the jawline, as well as filling in wrinkles, folds, and creases. (Learn more about how a liquid facelift works in this previous blog post.)
- Facelift. For people with more advanced signs of aging, a facelift is often a better approach. If you have sagging facial skin, jowls, loss of definition along your jawline, flat cheeks, and deep facial folds, surgery is typically the best way to create a naturally tauter, more structured, and younger-looking face. At a certain point in the aging process, many people find it’s better for their budget and their appearance to invest in a customized facelift that lasts about 10 or 15 years.
You don’t have to decide between a facelift or fillers on your own. Board-certified facial plastic surgeons like myself specialize in assessing faces and determining the best treatment plan for each person. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss all your options during a private cosmetic consultation.
