Best options for deep furrows: #botox or #browlift and composite #facelift
If you wanted to start slowly, botox could be tried for your furrows.
But if you were looking for something more powerful for a rejuvenation, I would then suggest a composite facelifts (upper and midface), high-SMAS lift, neck lift and eyelid surgery. This would address your furrows, your brow, your lids, your mid-cheeks, jowls and neck.
Hope this helps!

Face lift after a year of great pain?
- I am so sorry you have had such a very hard year.
- Your photos suggest that you mighty start with Botox and skin treatment to treat the deep furrows and improve your skin -
- Then a face lift is likely to be the next step.
- A consultation that sets up a plan, addressing each issue one by one, will be very helpful.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Is a facelift a good option for me?
A facelift is a good option for you...

My patients report that they can't bear looking tired and run-down anymore.
There are different solutions for different patients and I heartily recommend an indepth consultation with an experienced specialist Plastic Surgeon. This is exactly what our many years of training in both reconstructive and cosmetic work have equipped us to do.
Some patients benefit best from a facelift, with or without eyelid tucks and browlift. Some patients can get excellent results from a host of non-surgical modalities, like fillers and laser and wrinkle reducing agents(in Australia we are not permitted to use Brand Names of drugs in a public forum).
And many patients benefit most from a combination, like a facelift for the sagging and drooping, and fillers for specific lined areas or for the loss of volume as we age or lose weight. And we all age differently.
The best thing you can do for yourself is get a good, in-depth consultation with an experienced Plastic Surgeon. Then you will be armed with a lot of information and options that are specific for you and your situation.
Then you can make some decisions about what is right for you.
I hope this has been of value and wish you well.
