Why are  facelifts and facial rejuvenation so confusing?

Facelifts and facial rejuvenation procedures are topics that cause a lot of confusion amongst patients and there are a lot of options including   both surgical and nonsurgical  from browlifts, rhinoplasty, botox and other options. Patients often do not know which procedures to seriously consider and which to avoid.

What  should patients considering  facelifts and facial rejuvenation know?

Dr. Paul Scioscia advices patients about the right approach to surgical facial rejuvenation. A lot of patients come in for facial rejuvenations and the suggested approach is for the surgeon to first start with an evaluation of the face and skin in general as this is important in order to develop a real comprehensive plan for the patient. This is an important step as it helps determine the procedures or steps to be included. In some cases, non-surgical options are better and surgery may be avoided.
Dr. Scioscia breaks this examination into four modalities for taking care of facial lines:

 

  • Surgery.  In case there are issues of skin laxity, then surgical options might be a good solution
  • Dermal fillers are another option to fill in grooves and valleys created in the face. These would include fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Collagen or fat.
  • Skin Resurfacing. One approach is sanding from above or dermabrasion. This falls into three categories the first of which being laser of light sourced energy or lasers.  Another resurfacing option is to use a chemical peel and dermabrasion which involves mechanically doing the skin tightening and remodeliing.
  • Botox – which is unique in that it addresses dynamic lines which are created when one animates or moves their facial features.

Using this general breakdown patient may better understand the options to  choose from for facial rejuvenation or  facelifts.

Dr  Paul Scioscia is board certified by practices at  Ponta Vedra Plastic Surgery in Jacksonville Florida and has  particular expertise in facelifts and  facial rejuvenation.
