Facelift VS Liquid Facelift: Which is Right for Me?
Should you consider a facelift or a liquid facelift? You should consult with Dr. Vitolo before you come to any decisions, but you may wish to consider these points.
A facelift requires surgery under general anesthesia and will downtime. It usually takes a week or so to see the initial results to see your full results as the swelling goes down. With a liquid facelift, people experience no downtime and require no anesthesia. Results are visible immediately.
A traditional facelift may last for many years, although it may change somewhat as you age. A liquid facelift will last up to two years, depending on the types of fillers used to add fullness to the face. Without maintenance, a liquid facelift will return to its original state after the fillers wear off.
Results of a liquid facelift look less dramatic and visible than a standard surgical facelift. A liquid facelift cannot lift sagging skin the same way a surgical facelift can, although Dr. Vitolo achieves amazing results.
Recovery and Results
Non-surgical liquid facelifts will never achieve the same results as surgical facelifts. However, a liquid facelift makes an excellent option for people who do not want a surgical facelift or want to test out what results might look like before committing to a surgical procedure.
Recovery from a standard facelift performed by Dr. Vitolo lasts ten to twelve days. Recovery from a liquid facelift takes no time at all, and people return to normal activities immediately. If avoiding those days of recovery time is a priority, a liquid facelift offers a no-downtime option.
