With both surgical and nonsurgical options available for facial rejuvenation, how can you choose the right procedure for your needs? Here’s a quick guide that can help you better understand your options for facial cosmetic surgery from our San Diego practice.
There are several cosmetic procedures that can help you look younger without surgery. These range from completely noninvasive, like facials and chemical peels, to very minimally invasive, such as injectable fillers or BOTOX® Cosmetic, which are administered with a superfine needle. Our team will work closely with you to discuss which treatment, or combination of treatments, will work best for your goals.
Nonsurgical treatments can help reduce superficial hallmarks of aging, but changes that lie deeper may require surgery to properly address. A facelift from our La Jolla practice does much more than just get rid of wrinkles. With age and gravity, the skin and muscles of the face start to sag. A full facelift, or our less invasive QuickLift™, will actually tighten the muscles below the skin, reducing signs of aging from within.
For the most comprehensive results, many of our patients combine cosmetic surgery and nonsurgical procedures. During your consultation at our La Jolla practice, we can discuss your goals and tailor our efforts accordingly. For example, laser resurfacing will smooth out rough, damaged surface cells to reveal the fresh, glowing skin below. And this treatment can be performed along with a facelift and neck lift to repair lax muscles that lead to sagging skin. The result? A refreshed, younger-looking you.
