What’s The Right Option For Me: Facelift vs Botox

The decision regarding whether or not to choose a surgical facelift or Botox skin treatment is unique to each patient. The answer to this question will often depend on many factors, including:

  • your age
  • your appearance
  • your time-constraints
  • your budget
  • your overall health
  • the severity of your cosmetic concerns

Book a Consultation

The best way to get effective and safe results is to book an in-depth consultation with your plastic surgeon prior to any treatment. During this meeting, you can discuss your needs, aesthetic goals, and medical history to better determine whether a facelift or Botox treatment is the right choice for you.

Is There An Age Limit For Botox?

Contrary to popular opinion, there really is no age-limit for getting treated with Botox. If you have animation lines that cause wrinkles with movement of certain facial features, then Botox can and will help relax those muscles and give you a more youthful appearance.

However, you SHOULD NOT use Botox if you:

  • are allergic to any of the ingredients in Botox
  • have a skin infection or other condition in the injection area
  • have a nerve or muscle disorder
  • have difficulty swallowing problems
  • having breathing problems such as asthma
  • have bleeding issues
  • have drooping eyelids
  • are taking/have recently taken certain medications

Why Should I Consider a Facelift?

As safe and effective as skin treatments such as Botox are, and despite their lower costs, risks, and recovery times, sometimes a facelift can be a better option for achieving long-term facial rejuvenation. This is especially true for individuals who have more pronounced facial lines, typically due to age.

What is a Facelift?

A facelift is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to rejuvenate patients’ facial appearance by eliminating deep wrinkle lines and tightening the skin around the neck and jawline. It can be used to address a number of concerns including:

  • loss of muscle tone in the face and neck
  • loss of chin and neck contours
  • loose skin
  • deep creases at the base of the nose and corners of the mouth
  • jowls


Total Facial Rejuvenation

As you get older, you may notice that the skin of your face and neck progressively loses its elasticity, causing volume loss in the mid-face. In turn, this can cause:

  • the volume of your cheeks to become less prominent
  • jowls to develop
  • neck folds
  • facial lines and wrinkles to deepen

If you are worried about one or all of the above concerns, then they can be addressed surgically with a facelift and necklift, which may also be combined with an eyelid surgery for total facial rejuvenation.
