Have you heard about the Injectable Mid-Facelift procedure that can reduce wrinkles and restore a youthful appearance without surgery? For men and women in Tampa that have lost volume in the cheeks or have premature aging caused by the sun, an injectable facelift can be a quick way to revive facial features. It is also a way to “try-on” a facelift without actually undergoing the knife.
What is an Injectable Mid-Facelift?
Aging can impact the face in many different ways. As the skin loses its connective tissue, it no longer will bounce back into shape so wrinkles develop and deepen over time. Also the fat tissue under the skin is impacted by gravity and by the reduction of collagen and elastin. This tissue gives us the plump, healthy look of youth but it tends to migrate downward as we age which can lead to sunken cheeks and a sallow appearance.
An injectable mid-facelift replaces the volume that is lost with age and can restore facial contours. According to Dr. Dominic Castellano, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Tampa, an injectable facelift is accomplished with dermal fillers and can mimic the look of a surgical facelift. By using the combination of injectable fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic, a talented plastic surgeon can reduce wrinkles, soften facial folds, raise the corners of the mouth and eyebrows, and restore a more desirable contour to the cheeks and jawline. The lower eyelids can also be rejuvenated with the use of an injectable filler such as Restylane® or Juvederm.
Why choose an Injectable Facelift rather than a Surgical Facelift?
Having an injectable lift rather than a surgical lift can provide many benefits for the patient. It is generally recommended for an individual with sagging cheeks but no jowls or banding of the neck. It is also a good solution for addressing deep marionette lines or nasolabial folds around the mouth. The mid-facelift targets the skin and muscle tissue in the cheeks and lower face to provide a fuller, smoother appearance.
While a mid-facelift is not a permanent solution, it is an effective way to rejuvenate the facial tissue for several months or up to a year depending on the type of fillers used for the procedure. Dr. Dominic often recommends the non-surgical approach to allow the patient to enjoy the look of a facelift without having to invest time to recover from the surgery. An injectable facelift is also less of a financial cost than having a surgical lift. For some, it is simply the right procedure if a surgical facelift is not yet warranted.
Are you a Candidate for a Non-Surgical Facelift?
The best candidates for a non-surgical facelift are those that have moderate to severe facial lines in the mid-face and jaw areas. Younger patients that have lost volume in the cheeks and individuals that want to look refreshed for a specific event or want to “try-on” a facelift prior to scheduling surgery. If you are interested in learning if a non-surgical mid-facelift is for you, the best course of action is to schedule an appointment with a well-qualified facial plastic surgeon for a consultation. Although an injectable facelift is a relatively safe procedure that does not require a lot of recovery time, it is still a medical procedure. It is important to choose an experienced practitioner that has years of training in the art of using injectable fillers and that the procedure be done in an accredited medical facility.
