Question: I am 55 and have been reading about your minimal invasive neck-jowl lift under local anesthesia. I don’t want a facelift but would be open to less invasive surgery for my mild sagging neck and lower jowls. I also have deep nasolabial smile lines and marionette lines. Would I be able to get Bellafill, your 5-year filler, even if I had the neck-jowl lift?
Answer: It is quite common for my patients who have the neck-jowl lift to also have injectable filler treatments with Bellafill. Since most surgical lifts don’t usually take care of nasolabial folds or “puppet lines” at the mouth corners, softening these lines with a 5-year filler like Bellafill is a good option.
My minimal invasive neck-jowl lift, also known as the Whisper Lift, does not have any visible incision lines, is performed under local anesthesia and is minimal invasive. There are also no stitches to remove after surgery. For this reason, the downtime and recovery is typically much less than a facelift or standard mini-facelift.
Due to the shorter recovery of the neck-jowl lift, Bellafill can be done much sooner after surgery or, if you prefer, Bellafill treatment can be performed prior to surgery. Because Bellafill is known to typically last 5 years, this filler works well in conjunction with the neck-jowl lift which can also give long-lasting results.
Many patients are willing to pay more for less invasive surgery and longer lasting fillers. This trend in facial rejuvenation has become mainstream due to patient lifestyle needs as well as the investment potential in one’s overall well being. The focus on health and body has especially taken front and center stage as a result of Covid since patients are staying at home more and have extra time to take care of themselves.
A thorough consultation with a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon who is experienced in facial rejuvenation surgery, minimal invasive procedures and advanced injectable filler techniques is the first step in helping you determine the optimal procedures for your individual needs.
