Band Aid Procedures vs. Facial Injections

Through the years, facelifts have remained an increasingly popular option for women and men alike. Just last year, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reported 133,000 facelift procedures, a 6% increase from 2012. However, these numbers can seem small when compared to facial injections, which dominated the top of the minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure chart with over 8.5 million injections received. So, what’s the difference between the results of more invasive procedures versus popular minimally-invasive treatments?

LeRoy BAlaserThe question lies in your chosen procedures’ durability.  Years of experience have allowed me to develop a smaller, minimally invasive version of the traditional facelift called Band Aid Facelift, which gives you a smaller scale of the more dramatic results of a facelift without the associated downtime.

Performed in-office with local anesthesia with gentle numbing, the Band Aid Facelift is distinctly advantageous versus other procedures because I am able to target the underlying cause of very specific areas of concern.  Unlike dermal fillers, injectables, or even facial lasers that treat only the surface layers of the skin, Band Aid facelifts work to physically address lax muscles that cause the drooping appearance and crepe wrinkles associated with aging.  There is no way to stop the process of aging—the skin continues to age after any cosmetic facial procedure. However, by addressing the root issues with Band Aid procedures and practicing a bit of prevention, patients can see and feel the difference with more significant, long-lasting cosmetic results.

That being said, wrinkle-releasing substances and fillers do provide some longevity.  Botox® and Dysport® produce temporary results that typically last 4 to 6 months, while wrinkle fillers like Juvederm® and Restylane® can produce results that last up to a year. Regardless of your chosen injection, you will inevitably require some revision later on. Keeping up with injections regularly is a good idea for those who wish to prevent wrinkles getting more severe while treating those already in existence.

Overall, cosmetic surgery patients are considering cosmetic treatments at a younger age than those in the past.  In an effort to address the more localized concerns of a younger demographic, I have developed other minimally invasive versions of traditional body and facial cosmetic surgeries including Band Aid Blepharoplasty, Band Aid Liposuction, Band Aid Browlift, and more.

Our Patient’s Mini Facelift Testimonial

Mini Facelift Patient Testimonial

When a patient recently visited my office to address her concerns with her aging appearance, I knew a little lift would help her rediscover her confidence and self-esteem that tends to diminish over time. With a Band Aid facelift, I use smaller incisions to significantly reduce the recovery period. This way, upon returning to your normal routine, you’ll emerge with a refreshed, younger appearance, just as our patient did. She had her youthful vigor fully restored, as evidenced in her video testimonial.

Is Rhinoplasty Your Ticket to Turning Back the Clock?

Think beyond the facelift. Just like many plastic surgery procedures, rhinoplasty (nose surgery) has the ability to aid in creating a more proportionate aesthetic, in turn producing a more youthful appearance.   With over twenty-two years of experience as a double board-certified plastic surgeon, I perform rhinoplasty to reduce a large or disproportionate bridge and/or refine the tip of the nose or nostrils.

eyelid surgery atlantaThe nose is a key player in determining facial balance and feature-blending, often more than my patients realize.  If the nose is disproportionate, it can distract from your beautiful features rather than integrate them symmetrically and naturally. There are a few factors that are often addressed when your rhinoplasty goal is to look younger, including a slight upward point, a straight and smooth bridge (though not flat—you should still have a prominent profile from the side in order to look natural), and a proportional width that covers just the right amount of your face.

There are two types of rhinoplasty for facial rejuvenation I typically perform: open and closed. In open rhinoplasty, I’ll make an incision across the thin strip of tissue separating the nostrils called the columella. This technique allows for greater access to the cartilage and bone of the nose, making for a very precise surgery. Scarring for open rhinoplasty is usually limited to an imperceptible line on the underside of the nose. On the other hand, closed rhinoplasty eliminates the risk of visible scarring because incisions are made inside of the nostrils. In open rhinoplasty, bone and cartilage is taken away and/or reshaped to attain your ideal nasal contour. When required, the method of using nasal implants can be used to give the nose a better shape and heightened support, further adding to the anti-aging effects of rhinoplasty.

The goal of many of my facial rejuvenation patients typically does not focus on one particular feature. Rather, patients want to look in the mirror and see themselves, but ten years younger.  Combining various minimally-invasive Band Aid Plastic Surgery treatments to address cosmetic concerns can achieve more subtle, yet effective results. For example, rhinoplasty can be combined with liposuction of the double chin or a browlift to refresh and renew a tired appearance.
