Non-Surgical Facelift Before-and-After Photos
Individual results may vary.
This 57-year-old woman wanted to brighten her appearance and firm her cheeks and neck. Restylane® was used to lift the cheeks and add volume, Ultherapy to tighten the jawline, and BOTOX for facial lines. The results shown here are 2 months after the procedure. There was no downtime.
Proven Techniques, Outstanding Results
Dr. Gross takes pride in recommending the most appropriate treatment approach based on his personal examination of patients and conversations about their short-term and long-term aesthetic goals. Patients trust Dr. Gross' experience and judgment when he creates a treatment plan designed to meet those goals. In some cases, patients who think they need facial plastic surgery to get the desired results may be better off undergoing non-surgical treatments that don't require downtime.
Non-surgical facial rejuvenation can address a range of cosmetic concerns, either in a single procedure or over the period of a couple of months — depending on the specific treatments. Treatment options include:
- Ultherapy skin tightening to reduce jowls and give the neck and face a "lifted" appearance
- Laser skin treatments to improve the skin's overall texture and tone
- Certain fillers such as JUVÉDERM®, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC, and Restylane to restore volume and smooth wrinkles on the cheeks and around the mouth
- BOTOX or Dysport® injections to soften forehead creases, relax vertical lines between the eyes, and minimize crow's feet
Our customized Primera Lift, developed several years ago by Dr. Gross, produces a rejuvenated, younger look without the downtime or cost of surgery. He's proud to offer patients this exciting alternative to surgical facelifts.
Non-Surgical Facelift with a Facial Plastic Surgery Specialist
Many cosmetic physicians without the experience and training of Dr. Gross offer combination treatments that they call non-surgical facelifts. As a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Gross sets himself apart because of his detailed knowledge of facial anatomy and his understanding of how different treatments interact with each other. For example, a patient who combines BOTOX and filler injections may also benefit from an Ultherapy skin tightening treatment, but Dr. Gross recommends waiting 2 to 4 weeks to allow any swelling or bruising from the injections to subside.
One of the most important jobs of a facial plastic surgery specialist is recognizing when patients concerned about signs of aging won't really benefit from a non-surgical approach. Dr. Gross honestly assesses each patient's specific condition and may suggest a mini facelift for men or women whose skin may be too lax to respond well to non-surgical skin tightening.
A Smooth Recovery
One of the primary benefits of undergoing non-surgical facial rejuvenation, such as the Primera Lift, is that patients can refresh their appearances without the downtime associated with surgery. The nature of recovery following a non-surgical facelift depends on the customized treatments used by Dr. Gross. If Ultherapy is part of the procedure, most patients will take the remainder of the day off from work.
During your consultation, Dr. Gross will discuss exactly what to expect, after deciding on the treatments that will help you meet your cosmetic goals.
