Traditional facelifts are surgical procedures performed by a Board Certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Ali. He has extensive experience I n the field, and has been the surgeon of choice for other doctors and their patients. The results are typically permanent, although over the course of years, more procedures could be required.
Liquid facelifts, on the other hand, involve non-surgical procedures utilizing various fillers or other methods to sculpt the face and refine pores and skin tone. Although not as long-lasting as a surgical facelift, liquid facelifts can achieve excellent results for many. As the aging process continues, we lose fat, collage, elastin and muscle tone in our faces. This loss of volume results in the sagging, drooping appearance associated with age, and can be accelerated by sun exposure, heredity or lifestyle.
Dr. Ali employs a variety of FDA approved injectable products that help to replace lost volume and “fill in” wrinkles and deep creases and folds in the face. Although very effective at enhancing volume, injectables will not correct sagging jowls or drooping eyelids; surgical procedures are required to change these conditions. However, for a boost of youthfulness with no surgery and minimal recovery and downtime, the latest liquid facelift procedures can create outstanding results.
Results from liquid facelifts are often immediate, and may last between six months and one year, depending on the type of filler used and the procedure performed. Touch-ups will be needed over time to maintain the refreshed appearance, and to accommodate additional changes associated with aging. Liquid facelifts can correct the signs of aging, but they don’t actually slow down the aging process.
Dr. Ali will meet with you and perform a full evaluation of pre-existing conditions, medical history, previous procedures, medications and more. He prides himself on the time and care he devotes to each patient, to insure the procedure he performs is a good fit for them, that their expectations are realistic and that all of their questions are answered. Make an appointment with Dr. Ali to learn more about liquid facelift options, and determine if this procedure is right for you.
