Is the Facelift a Surgery of the Past?

North Carolina Liquid FaceliftAs advancements are continually being made in the field of facial rejuvenation, there are more noninvasive procedures available to treat the visible signs of aging than ever before. Some may think that with these noninvasive treatment methods becoming more popular, the surgical facelift is a treatment of the past. I recently came across an article in which the author believed this to be true, however, while there are many wonderful noninvasive facial rejuvenation treatments, I’d like my patients to know that a surgical facelift is still the only way to remove severely sagging skin and reposition fat and muscle to give the face a more youthful appearance.

Here at Carolina Facial Plastics, I offer my patients a variety of nonsurgical facelift treatments as well as the traditional surgical facelift depending on unique and individual needs.

Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation

Many patients who are just beginning to see the signs of aging on the face, but are not quite ready for a surgical procedure are good candidates for a liquid facelift. Minor skin laxity, volume loss, and fine lines and wrinkles can be treated through a variety of injectable treatments. As a dermal filler expert in Charlotte, I carefully combine hyaluronic acid gel fillers such as Juvéderm, Restylane, and Perlane with the neuromodulators Botox and Dysport to treat some of the most common problem areas, such as:

  • Droopy eyebrows

  • Under eye bags

  • Crow’s feet

  • Volume loss

  • Smile lines

  • Thin lips

  • Gummy smile

  • Weak chin

  • Expression lines

A Charlotte liquid facelift is performed in my office in one treatment session. Because it is a noninvasive procedure, there is no downtime, meaning patients can return to their normal daily activities right after treatment.

Surgical Facelift

Despite continued development in the field of nonsurgical treatments, the surgical facelift remains the best way to treat severely sagging skin and wrinkles. Trained by the top facial plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills, I believe that each facelift patient deserves a customized treatment plan to achieve the most natural-looking results possible.

The traditional facelift, or a rhytidectomy, tightens the facial muscles, removes excess fat from the neck, lifts the cheeks, and removes excess skin. A facelift is an outpatient procedure in which I use small, carefully placed incisions to create the desired look. My goal is always to provide natural-looking results with minimal scarring.

Patients that do not have severe sagging of the neck skin may be excellent candidates for a facelift or mini-lift.  This less invasive surgery lifts and tightens loose skin and creates a longer-lasting result than a liquid facelift.
