Facial Rejuvenation Procedures Available Near Carrollwood, FL
What is the right facial rejuvenation solution for you? To address signs of aging in your face, you may have both surgical and nonsurgical options to choose from. In general, a facelift will produce the most dramatic result. But, depending on your needs and preferences, dermal fillers and botulinum injectables may also be effective. Dr. John Roach, a double board certified plastic and general surgeon who practices at the Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery LLC near Carrollwood, Florida, can help you choose the optimal facial rejuvenation approach for you.
Injectables or a Facelift?
Contrary to popular belief, age is not the sole determining factor in choosing a facial rejuvenation technique. Everyone ages at a different rate, which can be influenced by genetics, sun exposure, stress, and tobacco use. For this reason, some people notice signs of facial aging much earlier – and can benefit from a facelift much sooner – than others, who may be able to achieve the result they’re looking for with injectables.
In general, injectables are designed to smooth out fine lines and restore some lost facial volume. However, unlike a facelift, nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedures cannot address loose skin or sagging tissue, which often result from a natural decline in the body’s production of collagen and elastin over time (both proteins are essential for maintaining smooth and supple skin). When performing a facelift, a surgeon can trim away excess skin, tighten the underlying tissues, and remove or reposition fat to create more youthful facial contours. If your primary concern is sagging skin on your cheeks, jawline, or neck, a facelift may be appropriate for you.
While injectables can produce a good result that lasts anywhere from a few months to a few years, these treatments generally must be repeated over time in order to maintain the desired look. On the other hand, the result of an expertly performed facelift can last up to a decade or longer.
