I have deep wrinkles but cannot have a Face Lift because I'm on blood thinners. What longer lasting wrinkle fillers would you recommend, like Artefill or something? Thanks.

Medical issues and facelift surgery
Depending on the medical condition that have you have you may be able to stop your blood thinners for a short period of time.
I have encountered this scenario a number of times. What I would recommend is a pre-operative consultation with your cardiologist or medical doctor to determine the risks of being off the blood thinners for a short while for the surgery.
If the problem is the surgeon (unwilling) please get a second opinion from another qualified surgeon.
You may be surprised to find out that with proper medical management a Facelift surgery can be carried out safely.
Hope that helps.
