What Is a Facelift?

A facelift is a type of plastic surgery that involves the tightening and/or removal of facial skin to correct signs of ageing on the face. Skilled plastic surgeons like Dr. Lee are able to create a very natural look that corrects the obvious signs of facial ageing. To perform the surgery, small incisions are first made near the ears. Then the surgeon lifts the skin and fatty tissues off of the underlying musculature and connective tissues and tightens it until the desired effect is achieved. Next, the skin is sutured to its new location, and any excess skin is trimmed away. The incisions are then sutured closed and the surgery is considered complete. The recovery period following a facelift lasts about two weeks, during which time the patient must primarily remain at home and rest.

What Is a Non-Surgical Facelift?

A non surgical face lift  London is a cosmetic procedure that treats signs of facial ageing through methods other than surgery. Dr. De Silva frequently performs non-surgical facelifts on patients who do not want to undergo a traditional facelift. He utilises a number of non-invasive treatments to create the desired effect. Depending on the patient’s unique needs, he may use one or more of the following cosmetic treatments to perform a non surgical face lift London:

  • Injectable fillers such as Restylane or Radiesse add volume, treat wrinkles, and augment the lips and/or cheeks
  • Botox to eliminate lines and wrinkles
  • Ultrasound technology or radiofrequency energy to tighten and tone the skin
  • Laser skin resurfacing to improve tone and texture while minimising fine lines and wrinkles
  • Other therapies as needed to achieve the desired result

A non-surgical facelift can rejuvenate the face and provide results that last between 6 and 18 months, depending on the treatments utilised. Dr. Lee can also perform touchups to maintain the effects of the non-surgical facelift.

The obvious difference between these two procedures is that one involves an invasive surgery while the other utilises several non-invasive treatments to achieve results. Another major difference is the recovery time following the procedures. While it takes most people a minimum of 2 weeks to recover from a surgical facelift, individuals who undergo a non-surgical facelift can typically resume normal activities within the hour! There is also a significant cost difference between the two surgeries, with a traditional facelift typically costing quite a bit more than a non-surgical facelift. The results of a surgical facelift will last between 10 and 15 years, while those who wish to maintain the results of their non-surgical facelift will need to undergo regular touchups. As a facial cosmetic surgeon, I can advise for both surgical and non-surgical options, as no two people have identical needs from treatment.

How Is a Non-Surgical Facelift Different From a Traditional Facelift?

Which One Is Better?

It is not possible to state that either procedure is better than the other. The question to ask is, “which type of facelift is a better option for me?” If you would like to rejuvenate your appearance without undergoing surgery, then a non-surgical facelift may be a more appropriate choice. If you desire a more dramatic effect with results that will last for quite a while, then a traditional, surgical facelift will be a better solution.
