At my Tampa practice, I often meet with prospective facelift patients who aren’t sure if their needs would be better addressed with non-surgical injectable procedures or facial plastic surgery.

Fillers are a popular treatment for subtler issues as they offer a minimally invasive solution with little to no recovery time. However, as aging progresses, many patients reach a point when no amount of non-surgical treatments can deliver the degree or longevity of results a full facelift will provide. At this point, a facelift can end up making more sense from both a cost and time perspective, as it lasts much longer and creates a more dramatic transformation than a “liquid facelift” can.

Signs You’re Ready

Here are signs you can watch out for to determine if you have reached the optimal time to book a facelift for the best possible results.

If you are noticing these signs of aging, you may be ready:

  • Sagging neck skin
  • Flat, fallen cheeks
  • Loss of definition in the jawline

With these concerns, especially if you are experiencing multiple, a surgical facelift could be the ultimate refresher for you.

While injectable fillers, BOTOX, laser treatments and the like can restore some youth to your face, they generally fall short when it’s time for a surgical lift. You may end up spending more money and more time in our office if you choose to continue with frequent temporary approaches as opposed to a more intensive, more permanent option.

Your Facelift Results

Our cosmetic surgery center has performed more than 2,500 facelifts. We have mastered the art of creating youthful, refreshed and natural-looking results for both men and women.

The most common complaint we hear from patients is that they wish they had opted for their procedures sooner. In my experience, the longer you wait, the more work there is to be done. If we address your concerns earlier on, your results will be much easier to maintain with just injectable treatments, though the aging process unfortunately never stops.

Combining Procedures

An added bonus of a surgical facelift procedure is the possibility of combining it with multiple treatments within one operation and recovery period. A popular addition is a surgical rhinoplasty, which can restructure the shape of your nose and address any bumps or bends to help it better harmonize with your features overall.

When you meet with me for a consultation, we will discuss all areas of concern and create a custom treatment plan designed to address as many as possible in one procedure. We will take into consideration your available time for recovery, budget, lifestyle, and other factors as we move forward.
