Liquid face lift
- Your mid and upper face look lovely - either by nature or with the help of Juvederm.
- The lower face and neck however are the areas that are showing your age.
- A liquid face lift uses fillers - a surgical face lift tightens the deep, loose tissues.
- Fillers in the lower face are not likely to give you the improvement you want -
- A lower face and neck lift is the standard and best approach.
- Recovery varies from 7 - 10 days and at your age, the improvement should be very pretty and very long lasting.
Hope you found this answer helpful. Best wishes.
Additional filler could be an answer to your concerns
The best treatment for skin rejuvenation and prevention depends upon an individual’s skin type, age, ethnicity, sun exposure, and overall health. I recommend a healthy lifestyle: a diet high in fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes and fish; eight to ten hours of sleep nightly; limiting alcohol intake other than the occasional glass of red wine; and regular exercise. An important step for all skin types is sun protection including the use of daily sunscreen, sun hats and sunglasses, all of which help prevent aging and sunburns. When it comes to rejuvenating and prevention treatments, a combination of treatments are available including cosmeceuticals (skin care products including ZO® Skin Health or ZO® Medical, Skinceuticals® or Glo-Minerals®), neurotoxins (Botox®, Xeomin®), dermal fillers (Restylane®, Juvederm®, Esthelis®, Belotero®, Emervel®, Radiesse®), and skin resurfacing procedures (advanced laser resurfacing or OBAGI® controlled depth chemical peel). These are advanced techniques so be sure to get an experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon consultation for recommendations and treatment options.

Am I a Liquid Facelift candidate?
A board certified plastic surgeon will listen to your concerns, outline the options that are available, and suggest the best treatment to achieve your specific aesthetic goals. In our office, we routinely combine treatments (such as facelift surgery along with syringes of filler and/or Botox). Again, other options that are available to delay surgery a little longer include: Ultherapy (highly focused ultrasound that subtly lifts and tightens the skin over a period of months), and skin-tightening lasers (such as fractionated carbon dioxide and erbium). These treatments will not give you surgical results but may allow you to postpone surgery for awhile.
I hope this is helpful!

Am I ready for a liquid facelift?
Hyaluronic acid fillers or HA fillers can prolong the need to undergo surgery. The results of a liquid face lift are immediate, and with very little to no downtime! You may get some light swelling or bruising, however many of my patients come on their lunch break and resume all normal activities within 24-48 hours. Results vary, but it can last up to 2 years. The cost is relative to surgery, the difference being the instant gratification and little to no down time.
The LiteLift™ is a modified facelift developed by board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Jed Horowitz and myself. We created this facelift technique with the goal of providing a less invasive, natural looking option for women and men wanting to refresh their appearance with less downtime and fewer risks. The LiteLift™ is a “real” facelift, which does address the underlying muscle, tissue, and overlying skin. It is not a superficial skin lift like other mini-lifts performed elsewhere. The LiteLift™ facelift is also not a “Thread-lift” or “String-lift,” and is not to be confused with the mega facelift chain “Lifestyle Lift,” which has closed its doors nationwide.
The LiteLift™ modified facelift technique perfected by us, results in less swelling, bruising, and healing compared to traditional facelift procedures. Most LiteLift™ patients have their procedure performed under local anesthesia, which reduces healing time, because they don’t experience the after effects of general anesthesia. Many patients are able to go back to work within one week.
I hope this helps you, be well!

Thanks for posting your photos. I do believe that a liquid facelift would really help reverse aging on your face. Be sure to see a board certified injector for best results.
Best wishes, Dr. ALDO
Thank you for your question. Based on the photos you seem to be a good candidate for a Liquid Facelift which help 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. For more information, please get a in person consultation from a board-certified dermatologist.
Thanks for your terrific question. You are a very beautiful woman who is showing some signs of the aging process mostly in the jawline. A "liquid facelift" would use a combination of different types of dermal fillers to re-volumize the mid-face and jawline to give you a completely rejuvenated appearance. It wont take much to give you that refreshed look you are seeking - especially since you have a wonderful framework to start with! Best of luck!
