Surgical Face Lift Vs. Fillers

A facelift, technically known as a “Rhytidectomy” (from Ancient Greek word rhytis which means “wrinkle” + ektome which means “excision”, surgical removal of wrinkles, is a type of cosmetic surgery procedure used to give a more youthful facial appearance and decrease signs of ageing. Despite the ever-increasing popularity of nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedures and fillers, the traditional surgical facelift still remains the most popular gold standard and sought for procedure for people wanting to get rid of signs of early ageing such as Deep wrinkles and smile lines, Loose skin on neck and jaw, Signs of aging in the lower & middle third of the face, Heavy jowls,Sagging cheeks etc.because of the fact that the results of nonsurgical treatments such as artificial fillers rarely come close to those of an expertly performed facelift. And artificial fillers often come with certain risks and possible complication because they are a foreign material which can have disasterous outcomes if it fails.
