Why Choose a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
Choose a board-certified plastic surgeon and be confident you are in the care of a highly trained surgeon you can trust.
Every face tells a story – but for some people, unwanted lines and wrinkles turn it into one they're reluctant to share with the world.
Today, there are many options to help those people transform their stories, by restoring their youthful appearance and regaining their confidence. Two of the most common are facelifts and Botox, and while both can have a significant impact, there are key differences between the two. Which is best for you? Let's take a look.
A facelift is a surgical procedure, which may include removing excess skin, tightening skin and lifting facial muscles or tissue. Sagging skin and deep wrinkles are among the issues a facelift can address.
Botox is an injectable treatment that relaxes facial muscles. It smooths lines and wrinkles, including around the eyes and forehead, as well as those near the mouth.
Every face is different, and every patient's goals are different, too. Before choosing any cosmetic procedure, it's important to discuss what you want to achieve, and what is possible with today's treatments.
