Patients today have more choices than ever for nonsurgical facial rejuvenation, thanks to continual advancements in technology. Still, the tried-and-true surgical facelift remains popular for many reasons.

Many patients find that combining the benefits of a facelift with nonsurgical options—BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, and laser treatments—offers optimal facial rejuvenation. From traditional surgery to noninvasive procedures, we take pride in finding the best combination of procedures to help each patient achieve a more youthful appearance.

How Can a Facelift Improve My Appearance?

The facelift is an excellent surgical solution for long-lasting facial rejuvenation, taking up to 10 years off your appearance and creating dramatic results that other treatments simply can’t achieve.

A facelift transforms your appearance by:

  • Adjusting not only the skin but the underlying tissues
  • Reshaping and contouring the lower half of the face
  • Removing sagging skin and excess fat
  • Reducing jowls

Our practice specializes in creating flattering, natural-looking facelift results by carefully customizing the procedure to each patient’s unique goals.

What Nonsurgical Treatments Can Enhance My Facelift Results?

A facelift can significantly turn back the clock for the lower two-thirds of the face but can’t address each wrinkle and crease. It also can’t restore youthful-looking fullness or address surface skin issues.


BOTOX is a time-tested, trusted way to fade the appearance of lines and wrinkles by relaxing the facial muscles and preventing the repeated contractions that form them in the first place.

BOTOX injections can enhance the results of a facelift by minimizing fine lines, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and the vertical lines between your eyebrows. Your doctor can advise how long you should wait after your facelift to get BOTOX, but it’s generally best to allow yourself plenty of time to heal and see the full results before proceeding.

Dermal Fillers

While a facelift helps tighten the skin and underlying tissues, the procedure doesn’t add volume to the skin. Dermal fillers can enhance your facelift results by restoring volume loss and creating a softer appearance after a facelift.

Dermal fillers plump up thin lips, fill in hollowed cheeks, smooth the area under the eyes, and treat fine lines and wrinkles. Combining BOTOX and dermal fillers offers comprehensive rejuvenation, often known as a nonsurgical facelift.

As with BOTOX, your doctor can advise how soon after a facelift you can have fillers. Once you’ve sufficiently healed and the full results of your facelift are visible, your injector can place the filler in the areas of the face where it will give the best effects.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Although a facelift addresses many signs of aging, the procedure doesn’t directly help with skin texture issues. Laser skin resurfacing corrects skin tone and texture, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and scars, diminishes age spots and redness, and promotes collagen production.

Laser skin resurfacing uses high-intensity lasers to stimulate collagen production and cell turnover. This treatment harnesses your body’s own healing process to naturally improve skin texture and elasticity for firmer, smoother, and more evenly textured skin.
