Houston facial plastic surgeon Dr. Haresh Yalamanchili performs this innovative treatment combination to help patients look youthful and refreshed with immediate results and minimal downtime.
Dr. Yalamanchili invites you to talk to him in person to learn how he can help renew your look. Request a consultation or call the Belage Center to schedule an appointment.
Why Choose Dr. Yalamanchili
As an experienced facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Yalamanchili understands the three main components of the facial aging process: changes in the skin, loss of facial volume, and the effects of gravity that occur over time. By understanding the aging process and then having the tools to address it, Dr. Yalamanchili is able to provide you with a non-surgical treatment that can leave you feeling and looking refreshed and rejuvenated.
If you are looking for optimal results from a non-surgical facelift, it’s important to choose a plastic surgeon who has experience using injectable fillers not as individual tools, but together as a comprehensive strategy for effective, long-lasting, and natural-looking facial rejuvenation.
The Tools of Non-Surgical Facelifts
There are many non-surgical treatments that combat facial aging, but no single treatment successfully combats all three types. When the right treatments are skillfully combined in a non-surgical facelift, they can give excellent results. Non-surgical facelifts utilize a variety of innovations in facial rejuvenation, which most commonly include:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® to combat the underlying muscle activity that causes creases in the changed skin.
- Dermal fillers such as RADIESSE® and JUVÉDERM® primarily combat the volume lost in the face. By targeting specific areas where the loss of volume can dramatically impact your appearance (such as hollows under the eyes), facial fillers can decrease your apparent age significantly. They can also counter some minor sagging by providing volume that can support sagging skin.
- Laser skin resurfacing and other skin resurfacing treatments are designed to reverse some of the changes in your skin by stimulating a healing response that produces younger skin with increased elastin and collagen.
When You Need a Surgical Facelift
Although facial fillers can provide some elevation of sagging facial tissues, in general, the effects of non-surgical facelifts on sagging are very minor. In addition, the effects of a liquid facelift are relatively short-lived, ranging from three months to a year, depending on the treatments used.
Of course, a surgical facelift offers a more permanent enhancement that can be much more dramatic than facial filler. If you want long-term correction or have significant sagging in your face and neck, Dr. Yalamanchili may recommend a surgical facelift.
