Facelift Question:

Face Lift at 40 years old.  If I’m in my 40’s, would it be alright to have a Face Lift instead of a filler like Perlane or Restylane?

Beverly Hills Facelift Surgeon, Dr Francis Palmer’s Answer:

Your age is much less of a deciding factor, when considering a Facelift, than the signs of aging and the shape of your facial features.  If you have nasolabial folds, jowls and excess loose skin, fillers would be helpful in shaping the face but won’t and can’t remove excess skin or tighten the underlying SMAS muscle.  For that, you would need a Face Lift.  In our Beverly Hills Surgery Center, we perform a minimally invasive Facelift called the “Palmer Celebrity Facelift” instead of the larger, more invasive traditional Face Lifts.

Think of fillers like Radiesse, Perlane, Juvederm, Restylane and Sculptra as the least invasive and effective method of reversing facial aging.  We typically combine these with our  Minimum Incision Face Lift (Palmer Celebrity Facelift) to make the face appear more youthful and naturally attractive.
