Why You Should Get a Facelift Rather Than Non-Surgical Procedures


While noninvasive surgeries are certainly on the rise, there are simply some non-surgical procedures that can never replicate or replace the effectiveness and long-term results that a traditional surgical procedure can. If you’re still deciding between surgery and a noninvasive treatment then it is advised that you book a consultation with Elements Spa’s board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Adibfar. From the consultation, you will be able to determine the best solution to your cosmetic concerns. Let’s take a closer look at 3 benefits of a classic surgical facelift over nonsurgical alternatives.

1. Customized Approach

A traditional facelift performed by a professional like Dr. Adibfar is not a one-size-fits-all approach. The procedure is a tailored plan created around each patients’ desires as well as the patients’ facial anatomy and underlying structures. There are also multiple facelift procedures to address different scales of aging as well as the degree of conservative results.

Mature patients may require more substantial revisions while a middle-aged patient with great skin may simply require a mid-facelift to address some skin sagging. The customization of the facelift procedure is certainly versatile and Dr. Adibfar uses his astute knowledge of facial anatomy to deliver the best results possible.

2. Maintenance

Patients who choose noninvasive treatments such as injectables like dermal fillers will need to maintain results with repeat treatments every 6-18 months depending on the patient. Depending on your injector, he or she may also deliver results that are asymmetrical or don’t provide the impact and improvement a patient desires.

With a well-executed surgical facelift, a definitive benefit includes long-lasting results. While surgical procedures will never be able to stop the natural aging process, facelift procedure results can last over a decade as opposed to injectables which only temporarily provide smooth and lifting results.

3. Long-Lasting Results

A traditional facelift offers long-lasting results incomparable to the results of noninvasive facial rejuvenation procedures. This is done via tweaking the underlying structures and removing any unsightly excess that would allow the patient to appear older than their actual age. Some patients may be concerned that the results of a surgical facelift appear obvious and overdone. While this may be true for some patients, a facelift performed by a board-certified cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Adibfar creates results that are noticeable to the patient, however conservative to peers. The goal is to allow the patient to appear rejuvenated and refreshed with results that truly support the natural beauty and features of the patient.

While facelift procedures certainly are more common, you must choose a plastic surgeon who is qualified and can offer the guidance and direction that best suits your needs and desires.
