How to choose between Surgical and Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation

The application of both surgical and nonsurgical modalities has increased significantly over the past decade. 

There are many options available for remedying visible signs of facial aging like sagging in the face and neck. Depending on the needs and situation, patients can often postpone the need for a surgical facelift by using a combination of injectable fillers, such as Botox and Juvederm , and laser treatments like Morpheus 8 and Lumecca to tone skin and treat wrinkles, scars and age spots.




Dr. David Lo of Premier Surgical Plastic Surgery in Knoxville discusses the options in detail with patients and guides them to what’s best to accomplish desired results.

For reducing deep folds and tightening up sagging skin in certain cases, a combination of both surgical and non-surgical facelift techniques may be most effective.

A surgical  facelift is most likely the best way to achieve a more youthful appearance for patients who are experiencing significant sagging skin, loss of facial volume, and wrinkling. Facelift is more comprehensive procedure for Facial rejuvenation. A facelift is a surgical procedure, or combination of procedures that can be used to target and correct different areas of the face.  

Cosmetic injectables, such as Botox and Juvederm are a range of safe and highly effective treatments which can be used to help target signs of facial aging, such as volume loss and wrinkles, and help restore a softer and more youthful appearance.


How To Choose Between Surgical and Non-Surgical Face rejuvenation 

Typically, patients in their 30s and 40s are able to get the facial correction they desire using cosmetic injectables such as Botox and Juvederm. Patients who are over the age of 40 may find that their goals can be met with a facelift that is designed for their specific needs. Laser treatments can provide effective benefits for younger and older patients seeking other options to smooth and rejuvenate skin.

It is best to get the  opinion of a plastic surgeon and have a consultation to decide about which option is best for you. .
