Making your decision
Below you will find three of the most impressive benefits to choosing facelift surgery over a non-invasive anti-ageing treatments. This list is not exclusive and every patient is in individual, so what works for one person may not work for another one.
The advice below is simply to be used as a guide if you are considering moving on from non surgical facial rejuvenation treatments to facelift surgery.
– Long term results
One of the undeniable benefits of choosing a surgical facelift over non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments is that the results are long-lasting. Unlike treatments such as skin tightening with energy assisted devices or injectables such as dermal fillers, the surgical facelift is designed for longevity.
Whilst a facelift cannot stop the ageing process, it is often found the patients who have undergone this form of facial rejuvenation surgery look more useful in 10 to 15 years than a patient who has not undergone facelift surgery.
– Versatility in the procedure
There is a common misconception that undergoing facelift has to involve lifting the entire face. This however is not the case, and there are multiple forms of facelift surgery offered if you are more concerned about specific area of the face.
For example: a mid-facelift is ideal for patients who are only concerned with skin laxity in the midsection of the face. Whilst there are non surgical treatments that can also tackle ageing in the midsection of the face, in the long term they cannot replicate the results of the mid-face lift.
– No follow up treatments
As all patients who enjoy nonsurgical anti-ageing treatments will testify, there is a certain amount of upkeep and follow-up treatments that are necessary in order to maintain the results. A prime example of this would be fillers, which require ‘top up treatments’ to preserve the results.
On of the clear benefits to undergoing facelift surgery as an alternative is that the results are long-lasting and do not require the patient to clinic every 12 to 18 months in order to maintain the smoothing or lifting results of the injectable product.
