Looking Younger With a Facelift vs. Liquid Facelift, What’s the Difference?

Bloomfield Hills, MI – When the goal is to look years younger, a facelift is the way to go. What facelift, then, should one choose?

It’s not common knowledge that there are two types of facelifts. There’s the traditional facelift, and then there’s the less known liquid facelift. What’s the difference?

Top Michigan plastic surgeon Dr. M. Azhar Ali explains the advantages and disadvantages of these two image-enhancing treatments.

Liquid Facelift

The liquid facelift isn’t much of a lift at all. It’s a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves the use of transdermal fillers.

Dr. Ali performs liquid facelifts in his Bloomfield Hills, Detroit office, and says that many patients remain unaware that liquid facelifts, while they are able to turn back time on the face, aren’t permanent.

Liquid facelifts make use of injectable fillers that are comprised of biocompatible materials. The fillers provide volume to areas of the face that have become sunken and misshapen due to age. The fillers smooth wrinkles and create a more youthful appearance.

According to Dr. Ali, the dermal fillers will eventually become absorbed by the body, prompting the patient to undergo a follow-up procedure to lengthen the effects.

Dr. Ali points to a myriad of benefits to liquid facelifts, however. In addition to giving the patient a more youthful appearance, there is little to no discomfort and almost no downtime.

The cost of a liquid facelift is also very affordable. Though the cost of the procedure is one area Dr. Ali hopes that patients will analyze carefully before making a decision to undergo this life-enhancing procedure.

“Any doctor can take a weekend course and call themselves a cosmetic surgeon,” says Dr. Ali. The Hour-Detroit magazine’s top doc 2016 award winner says that many patients may turn to subpar cosmetic surgeons in an effort to save money, but patient beware.

Dr. Ali says that only a plastic surgeon who has undergone years of intensive study after medical school can perform liquid facelifts, in addition to traditional facelifts, with the care and precision patients expect.

Dr. Ali says that cost should never be a factor when it comes to one’s appearance. As with most things in life, you get what you pay for. Dr. Ali advises patients to research the procedure and doctor heavily before signing up for liquid facelifts or any other cosmetic procedure.

Traditional Facelift

The traditional facelift is a surgical treatment that involves the drawing back and tightening of the face. This also smooths out wrinkles and can do away with sagging cheeks (jowls). Unlike liquid facelifts, however, the effects are permanent and more natural-looking when done well.

Dr. Ali has performed dozens of facelifts in his years at Amae Plastic Surgery Center and says that while the cost may be higher, and there may be some downtime following the procedure, patients are typically happier with the long-lasting effects of a facelift when compared to the temporary effects of a liquid facelift.

Both the liquid facelift and facelift can erase the years and give an ample boost to your self-esteem. Dr. Ali says that if budget is a concern, a liquid facelift is a perfectly viable alternative to the traditional facelift. However, only the facelift can provide the longevity and youthfulness that is sought out by most plastic surgery patients.
