Should You Do A Facelift or Botox? Tips on How to Pick Which

Facelift or Botox

What Is A Facelift?

A facelift is a surgical procedure which allows the face to become firmer and more youthful in appearance. It aids in diminishing wrinkles and improving problem areas like sagging skin on the neck. The important thing to remember is that this is a surgical procedure, and as such it can require up to two weeks recovery time for some patients before they are ready to resume their daily activities.

The results of a facelift are permanent, although the effects of aging will begin to show again after an extended period. By taking loving care of your body and face after the surgery, you can extend the life of your facelift results for over a decade.

How Facelifts Have Changed

How Facelifts Have Changed in the Last 50 Years

How Facelifts Have Changed

Once upon a time, when someone visited a plastic surgeon for a facelift, the procedure was quite simple. Surgeons simply placed patients under anesthesia, tightened and repositioned the skin on the face, and then removed the remnants. Though it did remove lines, wrinkles, and sagging, it was notorious for creating a “stiff” appearance. Fortunately, times have changed, and surgeons now use a multi-faceted approach to perform facelift procedures.

Facelifts vs. Botox: Getting the Results You Want

Botox vs Facelift

These days, when it comes to creating a more youthful appearance, there are non-invasive, minimally-invasive, and surgical options available to you. Two of the most popular methods for creating a younger-looking face are Botox injections and facelifts. While both of these options can provide dramatic results, there are some significant differences that may influence your decision.

Understanding the Facelift

Facelifts are surgical procedures, but there are some minimally-invasive endoscopic options available. Patients who want dramatic changes and long-lasting results often opt for facelift procedures because they can last for decades and offer far more visible results than other options. However, there are risks, particularly when it comes to anesthesia. Recovery times vary from patient-to-patient, and many are off work for two weeks or more. Finally, facelifts will result in some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but surgeons do their best to manage this with anti-inflammatories and painkillers.

Why Your Eyes Show Your Age (or Youth) the Most

female eyes

Per the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s journal, Ophthalmology, people make judgements of others’ age based almost solely on their eyes and the skin around them. They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, and it seems that people can tell just how old your soul might be just by looking at them.

The Unique Study

Researcher Huy Tu Nguyen, MD, who works with the Harvard Department of Ophthalmology, along with his colleagues, studied 47 younger adults who were asked to look at and analyze the faces of older adults on a computer screen. These individuals were fitted with special eye-tracking cameras that allowed the researchers to better understand the parts of the faces the individuals looked at the longest.

Why Knowing Who Your Plastic Surgeon did His or Her Fellowship Under is Important

Fellow

The team at Mardirossian Facial Aesthetics knows that choosing a facial plastic surgeon or FFS surgeon can be a daunting task. After all, everyone claims to be the best, and it’s hard to know who is all talk and who can truly provide the results you want. One important factor to consider is who your surgeon did his or her fellowship under. This is vital for a few different reasons.

Plastic Surgeons are Doctors Too

All facial plastic surgeons are doctors, and they all must undergo the same basic training as a pediatrician, a general practitioner, or even a podiatrist. However, it’s once those first few years of education are over that a doctor begins to choose his or her path and specialty. When it comes to plastic surgery, it is common for people to confuse the terms “plastic surgery” and “cosmetic surgery”. A plastic surgeon is someone who is specially trained, through additional education and a fellowship program, to assist in advanced reconstructive procedures. A cosmetic surgeon, on the other hand, is someone who performs purely elective surgeries, such as facelifts designed to improve aesthetic appearance.
