Botox or Facelift: Which is Right for You?

Botox or Facelift: Which is Right for You?

Botox or Facelift Blog

Botox has become the most popular non-invasive procedure used for correction of facial lines and wrinkles. It is extraordinarily effective in the area around the eyes and forehead. Used sparingly around the mouth, it can be effective especially when combined with dermal fillers for the treatment of vertical lip lines.

However, when there is excessive skin folding or drooping as in the development of jowls or redundancies of skin around the neck, a surgical procedure for correction is appropriate. These procedures are commonly used in patients who have had Botox and filler treatment for years, and they are becoming less and less effective. The nature of the modern facelift procedure is that it is exactly tailored to that patient’s specific area of correction. The procedures are generally a short-scar or mini lift, and can be combined with procedures about the neck for tightening loose skin.

Only by consultation and consideration of all options can an appropriate course of action be determined. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.

    Hands down this is the most amazing plastic surgery office! No haggling and Dr. Jacobs will not perform a surgery if the scar exceeds the benefit. His words exactly which is exactly what I want to know ahead of time not after the surgery is done. Dr. Jacobs is a phenomenal surgeon and I trust him 150%. Felecia his nurse is as wonderful as Dr. Jacobs!!

  • I visited Dr. Johnathan Jacob's Office to see about getting a Lipoma removed from my upper left shoulder. After meeting Dr. Jacob's he discussed with me what needed to be done to remove it. I was very happy with the surgery and how good a surgeon he is. I was very satisfied with the procedure and the outcome. I was happy with his staff also they took good care of me. ???

    Felicia is the absolute BEST. If you enjoy the feeling when people say, “You look too young to have a 19 year old.” Then book an appointment with Felicia immediately. She’s the sweetest human being on the planet and excellent at her job.
