Surgical vs. Non-Surgical Facelifts
A surgical facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the face and neck. These ‘visible signs of aging’ include deepening fold lines between the nose and the corner of the mouth, loose skin and excess fat on the neck, and jowls.
Non-surgical facelifts, using injectables, are an alternative method to traditional facelifts that offer lasting results without going under the knife. Injectables allow for the treatment of trouble spots, thereby enhancing your natural beauty without surgery.
With surgical facelifts being the more invasive procedure, the recovery time ranges between a few weeks to a few months. Patients may experience pain, scarring, bruising and swelling from the procedure.
Non-surgical facelift procedures offer little-to-no downtime. Often referred to as “lunchtime procedures,” patients are often able to resume normal daily activities immediately. With extensive non-surgical facelifts, patients will require up to two weeks of recovery time.
Are They Economical?
Surgical facelifts cost anywhere from $7,500 to $50,000 depending on which doctor you choose and how extensive you would like the facelift to be.
Non-surgical facelift procedures, such as dermal fillers and injectables, laser resurfacing and non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments, are a great alternative for desirable results at a lower price.
