A facelift procedure can reduce the visible signs of aging by tightening the skin and removing excess, sagging skin. During this procedure, facial fillers can be used to enhance the final results. Many patients see fantastic results when pairing non-invasive facial fillers with a cosmetic surgery procedure like a facelift.
- The Facelift
Your cosmetic surgeon will perform the type of facelift that you both have agreed upon, depending on which is best for your needs and goals. You will likely receive a local anesthesia before the surgery is performed. The incisions are made for the facelift are often in the region above the jawline, in front of the ears, and in the hairline at the temples.
Excess tissue and fat are then removed using liposuction techniques. The skin is pulled back and reattached to the face at the incision points. Some surgeons will make larger incisions and pull back more skin, if necessary. Facial fillers are then injected in areas of the face that need extra assistance.
- The Fillers
Patients who have deep lines and wrinkles present on their faces will typically see better results from facelift procedures when facial fillers are used as part of the procedure. The fillers may help to reduce the extent of surgery that is needed. Combining these two treatments can reduce the healing time as well, as you may be able to undergo a limited facelift when you opt for fillers as part of your treatment. Fillers also boost the results by adding volume to the face.
