Facelift or Injections? Facial Rejuvenation in Melbourne or Sydney


Facial Rejuvenation in Melbourne or Sydney

There may come a time when you want to assess whether a Facelift or Cosmetic Injections, such as anti-wrinkle solutions or dermal fillers, will be of greater value in your pursuit of a fresher-looking, more youthful appearance.  It can be difficult for patients to fully understand the pros and cons – and duration value – of facelift vs cosmetic injections.

To make decisions between a Facelift or Cosmetic Injections, you need to consider not only the potential results and treatment costs, but also:

  • the longevity of those results
  • treatment risks
  • appearance benefits
  • surgery or injecting processes
  • healing downtime
  • cumulative costs of temporary injecting treatments versus longer lasting facelift results
  • which Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Injecting or Skin Resurfacing procedures are recommended in combinations and which treatments to prioritise to get the appearance enhancements you’re wanting to attain
