You can’t stop getting older, but that doesn’t mean you have to look your age. If wrinkles or loose, sagging skin have made you dissatisfied with your appearance, you may be considering a facelift to refresh and revitalize. However, that isn’t your only option. Today, many people have discovered the benefits of combining non-surgical and surgical solutions for stunning anti-aging results.
Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Yula Indeyeva uses her refined skills and extensive knowledge of facial anatomy to help her patients look and feel their best. She has more than a decade of surgical experience and routinely travels around the country to train other providers on how to perform non-surgical techniques. With her meticulous attention to detail, she improves lives, elevates confidence, and allows people’s inner beauty to shine.
Besides facelifts, non-surgical treatments make an excellent companion to procedures like nose jobs, neck lifts, and eyelid lifts. Read on to learn more about some of our patients’ favorite combinations to help you decide whether this approach can benefit you.
What Are Non-Surgical Facial Treatments?
Non-surgical facial treatments are ideal for anyone with a busy schedule because they are quick, virtually painless, and require no recovery time. Mild side effects and few activity restrictions allow you to resume your typical daily routine immediately after your appointment.
Minimally invasive products and procedures include:
- Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that attracts and retains moisture. Fillers can diminish wrinkles and add volume to areas like your cheeks, lips, temples, tear troughs, and the backs of your hands.
- Sculptra Aesthetic is a biocompatible collagen stimulator. Rather than being a gel that dissolves over time, Sculptra works within your body to produce new collagen. This long-lasting rejuvenation helps prevent wrinkles, sagging, and volume loss. Sculptra differs from other injectable products in that it works more subtly to gradually improve skin’s appearance, with results that last as long as two years for some patients.
- Neuromodulatorslike Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin reduce wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes and eyebrow area. These treatments work by temporarily relaxing the underlying muscles in the targeted areas and preventing them from contracting.
What Procedures Pair Well With a Facelift?
Combining your facelift with non-surgical treatments can deliver more comprehensive results. For example, since facelift surgery makes targeted improvements in the lower two-thirds of your face, adding neuromodulators to your facelift can smooth wrinkles like crow’s feet, forehead furrows, and glabellar lines. Non-surgical eye rejuvenation can also brighten your appearance by diminishing prominent tear troughs, which can make you look chronically fatigued.
Depending on your concerns, a chemical peel can also be an excellent non-surgical complement to your customized Austin facelift. By exfoliating with a specially formulated blend of chemicals, a chemical peel can simultaneously resolve multiple skin concerns, including discoloration, acne scars, and a dull skin tone.
How Do Non-Surgical Procedures Help Enhance Surgical Results?
A comprehensive anti-aging plan that includes surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments is the best way to get your ideal appearance and maintain it over the long term.
If you’ve chosen a surgery that requires general anesthesia and downtime for healing, using this opportunity to have multiple procedures can reduce your expense and recovery period. For example, having lip filler injected during your rhinoplasty procedure can create more harmony among your facial features by enhancing your lips to balance your artfully reshaped nose.
After surgery, Dr. Indeyeva may recommend non-surgical treatments such as Botox and filler injections to prolong your results and keep your complexion healthy.
What Is a Non-Surgical Facelift?
With a non-surgical facelift, Dr. Indeyeva can contour, refine, and revitalize your look without incisions, stitches, or anesthesia. Injectable products can minimize wrinkles and fine lines while reshaping areas that have begun losing their youthful contours.
Depending on your aesthetic goals, Dr. Indeyeva will use her gentle, expert touch to add volume and smoothness to your skin with fewer risks and no need for downtime. Liquid facelifts are also more affordable than a traditional surgical facelift, which can allow people with less advanced facial aging to delay surgery.
In general, the goal of a liquid facelift is to create subtle enhancements that don’t look overdone. Patients seeking the following results are good candidates for a liquid facelift:
- Reduced wrinkles, creases, folds, and fine lines
- Gentle lift of sagging facial features such as jowls, eyelids, and the corners of the mouth
- Smoother, fuller, better-defined lips
- Added volume to sunken cheeks, temples, and tear troughs
- Enhanced contours
