Traditional or Liquid Facelift: How to Choose

It’s not uncommon for many of my patients to ask for help when deciding between a traditional and a liquid facelift in the Boston area. While both procedures have benefits, it’s important to understand what each can offer before determining treatment.

Facelift Surgery

Facelift surgery is often chosen to tighten and firm the skin in the lower face and neck. I typically combine a traditional facelift with an endoscopic mid-face lift to elevate the fat pads of the cheeks and create youthful facial contours. This procedure is recommended for individuals who have advanced signs of aging, such as loose skin and muscle in the jowls, neck, and jawline. Advantages of a facelift include:

  • Long-lasting results
  • More significant improvements
  • A defined jawline
  • Overall facial renewal

Liquid Facelift

A liquid facelift uses a combination of dermal fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic to create a temporary lifting effect on the skin. Liquid facelifts are best suited for individuals with more mild or moderate signs of facial aging, and can help restore essential volume to areas of the face that appear sunken or hollow. Benefits of a liquid facelift include:

  • Temporary enhancements
  • Subtle, natural improvements
  • Improvements in specific, targeted areas
  • Quick, comfortable treatments
