What is a "Liquid Facelift"?
A liquid facelift consist of using a combination of injectable medications such as dermal fillers (Restyane, Juvederm, Belotero) and neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport) to improve the appearance of the face and neck. This is performed in the office and the results are very natural adding volume where it has been lost and relaxing muscles which cause wrinkles to form.
The results are not as aggressive as surgery, but there's also very little recovery and it is less expensive than most surgery procedures on the face.
Best wishes, Dr. ALDO :)
Thank you for your question. Liquid Facelift helps restore your face’s naturally young and healthy appearance. The treatment uses dermal fillers such as Restylane and Bellafill which help your wrinkles dissipate and any sunken areas of your face. Results will typically last for 9-12 months. For more information, please get a in person consultation from a board-certified dermatologist.
Thanks for your question. A liquid facelift is a procedure where dermal fillers, typically Hyaluronic Acid (Juvederm or Restylane) are used to re-volumize areas of volume loss. After significant weight loss, volume loss in the face can give a person a more aged appearance, thought without photographs it is difficult to determine exactly what is going on. There are plenty of non-surgical as well as surgical options for everyone and the best course is to seek out a board certified facial plastic surgeon who has an in-depth knowledge and experience with all the various techniques to give you the specific and tailored refreshment you are seeking! Best of luck!

Thanks for your question! I'm sorry to hear about your accident, but happy to hear that your recovery is speeding up.
It sounds like what you need most is more definition added to your jawline. This can quickly and easily be accomplished through non-surgical chin augmentation. In this procedure, dermal fillers like Juvederm Voluma and Radiesse are placed along the chin area. However, in order to balance out this effect with the rest of your face, definition should be added to your cheeks as well. Check out the links I've attached for more information. Hope this helps!
The fillers quickly followed suit using this misnomer for marketing. Fillers are the hyaluronic acid products (Juvederm/Voluma/Restlane/Perlane) and have an instant effect, and are reversible.
The idea of both Sculptra and the fillers (Voluma is my favorite) is that they can create a more youthful appearing and "lifted" face without surgery.
Without picture, the answers that you are going to get will be speculative in nature.
To be sure, see two or more experienced, board-certified Plastic Surgeons for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have surgery.
I hope this helps.
What is a liquid face lift
- I am so glad you have recovered but sorry you were in such a bad accdident.
- A liquid face lift uses fillers to plump up the face to rejuvenate it.
- It sounds as though your weight loss has made your face a bit gaunt.
- If you are going to gain back the weight - don't do anything now because with more weight, you may look fine.
- Botox is unlikely to help but fillers can - they pump up the areas where volume was lost.
- A true liquid face lift uses about 5 syringes of filler and can be costly.
- But you may not need so much.
- Always see a Board
Certified Plastic Surgeon.
