Facelift and Facial Rejuvenation Differences

Facial rejuvenation is the correction of aging changes of the face. It can be done using skin care, lasers and peels, injectables or surgery. The surgery can be a "facelift," brow lift, eyelid lift or any of several other procedures. The term "Facelift" actually refers to the surgical rejuvenation of the lower face and neck, but, the way many people use it can include surgery to the face, neck, cheeks eyes and brow.

Face Lift versus Facial Rejuvenation

Hi Rose.  I suppose the definition of terms varies among surgeons and patients.  Generally speaking, "Facial rejuvenation" is a global term, with the objective being to improve the face.  This may include surgical procedures, such as facelift and eyelid surgery, and may refer to non-surgical procedures, such as laser, Botox, and facial filler.  For the most part, a "facelift" refers to the surgical procedure intended to re-drape and re-suspend the collapse of facial tissue that occurs over time.  I hope this is helpful.  Regards, Andy Shah MD.

Facelift or Facial Rejuvenation

As stated, facelift is a surgical procedure while facial rejuvenation is really a concept of attaining and maintaining a youthful appearance. It incorporates skin care, surgical and non-surgical options. I like to tell patients that a facelift will restore the architecture by elevating the sagging tissues and tightening the loose skin, but it alone does not slow down the aging process. That is accomplished with the other treatment options to improve your skin texture, complexion, and improve collagen production.

Considering a Facelift

Options for facial rejuvenation include facelift, fillers, and noninvasive skin tightening, as well as laser peels. Consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon to discuss your options. Good Luck!

Facelift versus facial rejuvenation

A facelift is a type of facial rejuvenation procedure. Rejuvenation refers to making you look more fresh, rested, and younger. There are both surgical and non-surgical methods of doing this. Non-surgical methods of facial rejuvenation include lasers, botox, and dermal fillers. These can correct subtle signs of aging. For sagging of tissue such as jowling and a turkey neck, surgery, such as a facelift are required to rejuvenate the face. I hope this helps.
