Not all facelifts or facial rejuvenations require a surgical facelift. Although facelift surgery does offer a longer-lasting solution to reducing the signs of aging, there are non-surgical options available. Dr. Khosh is a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon that offer several facelift options, from the most complex surgical facelift like the deep plane to minimally invasive options like the non-surgical facelift.
There are many ways to rejuvenate your face as it ages without the use of surgery. New advances in injectable options are available to combat many signs of aging that were once only fixed through surgery. From reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles to removing under-eye bags, the non-surgical facelift is a viable option for many men and women.
The non-surgical facelift is also called the liquid facelift as it uses liquid injectables to do the lifting instead of the scalpel and sutures. There are several different facial fillers, neuro-modulators and other injections that can add volume to the face and even reduce fat deposits under the chin. Laser resurfacing can give the skin new life and better tone. The benefit is a younger looking face without the risk or downtime of facelift surgery. However, a non-surgical facelift is not permanent and many of the injections will need to be repeated every several months to maintain the appearance.
