When patients come to Sean Weiss Facial Plastic Surgery, they may be curious about the treatments they qualify for to address the signs of aging. For many, injectable fillers can be used to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, while others may be better suited for plastic surgery procedures such as facelifts. Let’s learn about the two and when you might qualify for a facelift over cosmetic injections.
What Are Injectable Fillers?
Injectable fillers, sometimes referred to by our professionals as “dermal fillers,” are typically hyaluronic acid cosmetic injectables designed to address the signs of aging. These treatments reduce wrinkles, restore volume and smooth out contours in areas such as cheeks, lips and jawline. Injectable fillers can also be used for facial sculpting, achieving fullness in specific areas like the chin or temples. Depending on the product chosen, results can last anywhere from a few months to up to two years, depending on the area treated.
In addition to injection treatments with dermal fillers, other skin care treatments may help enhance your overall look and feel more youthful. Dr. Sean Weiss is a double board-certified plastic surgeon who can customize a treatment plan just for you based on your individual needs and desired results.
When Should I Consider a Facelift?
Some patients may find dermal fillers and other cosmetic injectables to be reliable options for reducing signs of aging. However, a facelift may be more appropriate in some cases. A facelift is a more invasive surgical procedure that can significantly improve the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin and facial volume loss, among other signs of aging.
If you are looking to completely transform how your face looks and feel more satisfied with your look over time, then a facelift may be right for you. Dr. Sean Weiss has extensive experience performing various types of plastic surgery procedures, including facelifts. He is committed to providing highly personalized treatment plans that address each patient and can help in deciding whether injectables or plastic surgery are best.
