When most people think of a facelift, they think of going under the knife and having a surgical procedure to tighten the face and remove excess skin and fat. But there’s another option that doesn’t require surgery that can achieve excellent results. The procedure is called a liquid facelift, and it’s gaining in popularity.
What Is A Liquid Facelift?
A liquid facelift involves the use of dermal fillers to achieve the desired results. As we age, our faces tend to lose volume, which can result in a droopy look that can make us look tired or like we’re always scowling. Also, the loss of facial volume can make people look older than they really are.
Our plastic surgeon will use a variety of fillers to produce the best results. The doctor might even use Botox to help fine-tune the way your face looks by improving your facial contours.
What Are The Benefits Of A Liquid Facelift?
The biggest benefit of a liquid facelift is that it’s a non-invasive procedure. This means that instead of making incisions, our surgeon will make small injections with very fine needles. To ensure your comfort, local anesthetic might be used so you won’t even feel the needle injections. However, many fillers now have an anesthetic mixed in, meaning there’s no need for additional pain-killing drugs.
Another large benefit of a liquid facelift is that it allows our plastic surgeon to make highly targeted corrections to your face. This is in contrast to a traditional facelift where the entire facial area is treated because the surgeon tightens your face by pulling the skin upwards.
Am I Candidate For A Liquid Facelift?
Only one of our double board-certified plastic surgeons can determine if you make a good candidate for a liquid facelift. This is done after taking a detailed medical history and a careful examination of your face. You’ll also see before/after pictures of previous patients who have had a liquid facelift so you know what kind of results to expect.
The surgeon may recommend a more traditional facelift if your face has a lot of excess skin or fat that needs to be removed. Liquid facelifts are designed to help patients with facial volume loss. During your consultation, the surgeon will go over all of your options and help you make the best decision based on your desired outcome. Once you and the surgeon agree on the best treatment, you’ll make an appointment for the procedure. Liquid facelifts are performed in our state-of-the-art surgical suite, right here in our office.
