What Procedure Is Right For Me? Surgical Vs. Non-Surgical Facelift

Surgical vs. Non-Surgical Facelift

With the appearance of more and more non-surgical procedures on the market, patients are left wondering what’s the right procedure for them. At Panacea Plastic Surgery, we offer a wide variety of options for patients seeking a younger, healthier-looking facial appearance.

There are several factors that can help determine which procedure may or may not be right for you. The severity of your cosmetic concerns, your desired results, and the time available for recovery can all play a role in what your best option is.

Both surgical and non-surgical procedures have advantages and disadvantages. Let’s take a closer look at a few of the possibilities available to you.

Surgical vs Non-Surgical Facelift


Surgical Facelift

A surgical facelift involves making small easily concealable incisions behind the ear and along the hairline. Numerous cosmetic issues can be fixed at once with a traditional facelift. Excess skin is removed while underlying fat and muscle tissue are tightened and readjusted.

Surgical facelifts provide long-lasting dramatic results. Facelifts can correct fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, sunken cheeks, and deep folds. There are several facelift options available depending on the treatment area.

The ideal candidate for a surgical facelift is a patient with deep skin folds or one who wants to eliminate loose sagging skin for good. Patients should plan for up to two weeks or more of recovery time when undergoing a surgical facelift.

Non-Surgical Facelift

Non-surgical facelifts can include a combination of minimally-invasive treatments such as Ultherapy and dermal filler injectables. Dermal fillers can be used to fill in fine lines and wrinkles while Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to reduce the appearance of sagging skin.

Although non-surgical methods can be long-lasting, they’re not permanent and they can take multiple treatments to achieve desired results. The majority of dermal fillers last anywhere from 1-2 years max. However, patients who are looking to improve their appearance with minimal downtime might benefit from non-surgical treatments.

There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ procedure for everyone. Your surgeon will work with you to create a specialized plan tailored just for you. Our goal is to help you improve your self-image and give you the best outcome possible whatever method you choose.
