Injectable Fillers or Surgery: Which is Your Best Option?

Injectable Fillers or Surgery: Which is Your Best Option?

If you want to get rid of the signs of aging from your face, you can either get dermal filler injections or undergo facelift surgery. However, sometimes it becomes difficult to choose between injectable fillers and surgery. This article gives you a breakdown of how injectable fillers and surgery work.

Injectable Fillers

Injectable fillers are soft tissue fillers injected into your skin at various depths to help smoothen your skin by filling out facial wrinkles and fine lines. They also provide volume where the skin has become loose or is sagging. These injectable fillers are also good for augmenting facial features and restoring a smooth, youthful appearance.

These fillers are recommended in the early stages of your life when you can restore your youthful appearance without going under the knife. There are different types of injectable fillers including Botox and Dysport. Most of these fillers are made from compounds that occur naturally in human bodies, including hyaluronic acid. This makes them completely safe for cosmetic applications.

They are designed to help your facial muscles relax, especially those that cause crow’s feet and brow furrows. When they are injected at different parts of your face, these fillers will give you a revitalized and well-rested look. They are fairly painless and do not require any downtime. Therefore, if you want a procedure that doesn’t affect your daily routine in any way, just get the injectable fillers. However, you need to understand that the effects of injectable fillers are temporary. In most cases, you will enjoy the results of dermal fillers for about 6 months. So, you have to keep getting the injections every now and then.

Plastic Surgery

Even if you are using the injectable fillers, there will come a time when they won’t give you the desired results because the aging signs are too advanced. When this happens, the only effective solution will be a surgical facelift procedure. This procedure will help you reverse numerous aging signs including sagging skin, excess fat around your chin and neck, deep folds and wrinkles around your nose and mouth, and cheek or jaw jowls.

This type of plastic surgery involves removing excess skin and fat from your face and tightening the loose muscles and skin. To do this, the plastic will make an incision along your hairline or behind your ears to remove the excess skin and tighten your face. The effects of facelift surgery can last a lifetime if you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

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!!
