When it comes to facial rejuvenation, the answer for many is a facelift. If you’re a healthy non-smoker with resilient skin, you’re probably a good candidate for facelift surgery. Facial wrinkles, folds and sagging jowls will be reduced as your skin is tightened and in most cases smoothened.
“After talking with patients about the many facial rejuvenation techniques, we decide the appropriate procedure together. I suggest options; if a patient doesn’t agree, it is a sign we should not proceed together. Surgery is something that a patient and doctor should agree on together,” says Dr. Villanustre.
Facelift Alternatives and Complementary Procedures
The facelift is just one of many techniques to assist in facial rejuvenation available at Reflections at St. Luke’s. Some patients can benefit from other surgeries, such as neck lift, brow lift or eyelid surgery.
Non-surgical techniques do not offer the same long-term results as a facelift. However, if you have mild or moderate signs of aging, an injectable treatment can be a great option. Botox® Cosmetic can reduce lines and wrinkles on your face, while dermal fillers such as BELOTERO BALANCE®, Juvederm®, Radiesse®, and Restylane® can add volume to sunken areas.
