Q: When is a liquid facelift better suited for the patient than a surgical facelift?

What our experts say:

Liquid facelift is just a term that has been adopted because of the different gel- or liquid-based fillers that we use. Instead of a surgical facelift we inject different fillers to basically plump up the tissue in the face, which takes up the slack in the skin. A lot of people need facial volume anyway so when they receive the volume they look better, so if you only need minimal elevation it's an excellent way to do it.
