3 Treatments to Try Before a Facelift

Eyelid Surgery

Noticing that your reflection in the mirror is starting to look older than you feel can definitely be unsettling. For my patients who are concerned about early signs of aging but are not ready to commit to a facelift, I recommend a few alternatives they can try for great results.

1. BOTOX® and Injectable Fillers

BOTOX® was the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure performed in the United States last year, according to the 2013 plastic surgery statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. BOTOX® can smooth away dynamic wrinkles and work preventatively to keep skin looking younger, while dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® can restore lost volume to minimize deeper lines like the nasolabial folds.

2. Fat Transfer

As a natural alternative to synthetic fillers, I can add volume to the midface for a more youthful look or diminish wrinkles using fat cells taken from your own body. This microfat grafting offers organic, lasting results for facial rejuvenation.

3. Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery is a wonderful solution for helping men and women look younger without a facelift. The delicate skin around the eyes makes this area particularly susceptible to showing signs of premature aging. With eyelid surgery, I can lift droopy lids and remove bags below the eyes for a well-rested, more alert appearance.
