Surgery alone won't do everything
A combination of a good skin care regimen, fillers, some Botox (or equivalent), and perhaps a limited lift (but unlikely) are the way to start. I would ease into the process. Seek a consultation with a physician versed in surgical and non-surgical interventions.

The fractionated CO2 laser can be used for texture changes of the skin due to sun damage. I also do this under just a topical anesthetic.

Surgery versus fillers
This is a simple question to answer. If there is a need for surgery, drooping and sagging due to age and gravity, there is no realistic choice but surgery. Fillers will plump things out temporarily and do have their place.....but they are temporary and do very little to properly reposition tissues that have real sagging issues. I do all my surgery with oral sedation and local infiltration anesthesia. The process is totally safe, very easy, and almost completely painless except for a few simple needle sticks. Once the tissues and facial structures are back in the proper position, any need for volume and filler use can easily be done to get the perfect result
