The good thing about plastic surgery these days is you have a lot of options, depending on your needs, preferences, and current lifestyle. Here at our Massachusetts plastic surgery practice, choosing between a facelift and a non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure such as Botox and dermal fillers is a common concern. So when exactly do you need a facelift? Let’s find out below!
If You Have Loose, Excess Skin
By and large, a facelift procedure with Dr. Russo is ideal if you have a significant amount of loose, excess skin in your neck and face. The excess skin will be removed during the procedure while the remaining skin could be trimmed and tighten to remove the appearance of facial folds and wrinkles. Furthermore, a well-defined bone structure is a bonus to help provide long-lasting support of the delicate changes made by Dr. Russo.
On the other hand, if loose, excess skin is absent yet fine lines and wrinkles still appear in your face, non-surgical techniques may be more appropriate such as Botox and laser skin resurfacing. It should be noted that there are certain skin problems that can only be significantly improved through a face lift.
