I’m considering a facelift. However, I’d like to know if there are any other options for tightening the facial skin?
Your question regarding alternatives to face lift surgery is a good one and one that I am asked frequently. There is a great deal of information in the media about facial skin care products and various lasers that can tighten your skin without surgery or with little or no downtime. However, if you are considering a face lift and if you are a good candidate for a face lift, then it is very unlikely that any other procedure or laser intervention will give you the results that you are hoping for or that can only be obtained with a face lift. It is possible that a mini or weekend face lift could be an alternative to a full face lift but, I would only suggest these alternatives if you had only mild neck skin laxity and no other issues related to aging of your neck such as loose muscle and neck banding.
