Botox and Plastic Surgery Can Make You Look Better and/or Younger
There is no single answer to that question. Some procedures, such as Botox injections, make you look “better” and “more rested,” as the treated areas will be smoother and more youthful. How many years that “takes off” will vary by the perceiver. For more extensive work, such as surgical facelifts, some people report looking and being told they look as much as 10 years younger. However, no procedure can turn back the clock entirely. One issue that plastic surgery can't address is bone loss, which occurs as a natural part of aging. So a 70-year-old, for instance, will not look like a 30-year-old, no matter how much work is done. The aim in any plastic surgery procedure – whether Botox, fillers, or surgery – is to make you look the best you can be at this moment in time: healthy, rested, rejuvenated and with a unique beauty that looks natural, balanced and harmonious. I hope this helps.
Cosmetic surgery and turning back the clock
There are many techniques to rejuvenate - non-surgical and surgical. The goal is to help you look better - more vibrant, less tired, more confident, and have a more cheerful expression. Patients often feel they they have turned back the clock more after combination treatments rather than any single treatment. Often, Botox, fillers, skin tightening and laser treatments are combined. This is especially true if the patient is at the earlier end of the aging process, are non-smokers and so not have significant sun damage. As the signs of aging progress, more invasive surgical techniques are necessary to achieve rejuvenation, although Botox, fillers and resurfacing procedures continue to be important and enhance the results of a facelift or other surgeries. Nevertheless, the results of plastic surgery, too, are more impressive in patients who do not have advanced aging.

How Young Can Surgery make you?
I combine fat transfer with traditional lifting surgery such as facelifts, brow lifts, and eyelid lifts. This gives an added dimension to the face that the procedures alone do not do. A traditional facelift turns back the clock about 10 years. With the addition of Fat Transfer, it adds the lost volume to the face and it is almost impossible to put an age on them. The fat transfer part adds a stem cell like quality to the face and adds volume. This is a necessary part of the youthful nature that is necessary. Also, fat transfer around the mouth area and this adds another youthful feature to the face. This is a necessary part of the youthful face that adds a naturalness. Please check out my phoos and you will see this part. Thank you for your question.
