Facelift surgery corrects skin laxity and sagging tissue from the cheeks to the chin. The procedure eliminates jowls and double chin, lifts sagging cheeks, and creates a firmer and more youthful appearance that can last for ten years or more.
Facelift surgery is very effective at correcting age-related skin laxity. However, it is not the best solution for every need. Facelift surgery comes with surgical risks and a recovery period, which may not be attractive to all patients.
At South Tulsa Plastic Surgery, we take the time to understand your needs, allowing us to suggest the safest and most effective ways to reach your goals.
A “liquid facelift” is a non-surgical treatment that uses dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers to address skin laxity, wrinkles and fine lines, skin hollowness, and more. Unlike facelift surgery, which focuses only on the mid and lower face, a liquid facelift can be used from the brow to the collarbones, improving the appearance of the entire face.
Options that may be used in a liquid facelift include:
- Dermal Fillers. We use fillers from Belotero®and the JUVÉDERM® collection to add volume to the skin, eliminate sagging, and improve symmetry. The JUVÉDERM line includes formulations for lip augmentation as well
- Wrinkle Relaxers. We offer Dysport®and Jeuveau® to relax wrinkles around the nose and mouth, on the chin, and along the neck. Wrinkle relaxers are also used to eliminate crow’s feet, lift sagging eyebrows, smooth forehead creases, and soften frown lines
With a liquid facelift, wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers are used together to address multiple issues impacting the skin. Which combination and which products you’ll need depends on factors unique to your body. During your initial consultation, we can help you choose the best fit for your needs.
How Long Does a Liquid Facelift Last?
A liquid facelift can produce results for six to 18 months, depending on which products are used. We will help you plan accordingly and discuss maintenance during your initial consultation.
