The Difference between Facelifts and Injections

The Facelift Surgery Chicago clients undergo may seem extreme to some people. However there are many reasons a patient might opt to have a facelift over injections. Here are the key differences to help you decide which is best for you.


A facelift is a surgical procedure that can take a few different approaches to lessen the sign of wrinkles and saggy skin. A facelift is a safe procedure and one of the most effective techniques combines the tightening of loose skin with the injection of the patients own fat to help shape and lift the face. The fat used is taken from your own body usually the tummy area. For many people cheeks become thin and hollow looking and the addition of fat brings back the natural, pretty plump cheeks of a more youthful face. The procedure is invasive which is one of the reasons some people might hesitate to undergo facelifts. However the down time is limited and the new approaches and techniques add to a far faster recovery and stunning results. The results will also last well over a year, making it a good investment to maintain your lovely looks.


There are many different types of injections from botox to liquid injections. Botox is actually a poison, albeit harmless when used to remove the appearance of wrinkles. Botox causes the wrinkles to smooth out and soften due to the toxins. Liquid injections, also known as fillers, soften the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin by literally filling in the sagging areas which helps to smooth the skin. This works well but does not last as long as facelifts. This means it has to be done on a regular basis. The skin remains intact following injections meaning that the sagginess is not completely removed as with face lifts. Although it is non-invasive it can be quite uncomfortable and some patients may also be allergic to the ingredients used. As you can see there are pros and cons to both injections and the facelift surgery in Chicago area uses. Many plastic surgeons may even use a combination of procedures to get the best results. You can discuss your options and come up with the one that is best for you.
