BOTOX® Cosmetic or Facelift Surgery?

If you are unhappy with the impact aging has had on your facial appearance, there are many treatments that can be used to restore a smooth and youthful look. Which one is best for your needs can most easily be determined by meeting with board-certified Fort Myers plastic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña for a facial rejuvenation consultation.

Two of the most popular cosmetic options offered by Dr. Peña are BOTOX® Cosmetic and facelift surgery. However, while both of these can produce a noticeably more youthful appearance, they offer very different benefits.

Facelift surgery addresses loose and sagging skin in the neck, along the jawline, and throughout the lower and mid-face. This cosmetic surgery procedure is also used to lift underlying facial muscles and tighten skin – reducing deep lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose. Facelift surgery can remove up to ten years from your appearance and provide long-lasting results.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a nonsurgical cosmetic option that addresses fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face. Dr. Peña injects BOTOX® Cosmetic into specifically targeted problem areas to relax muscles and produce a smooth and flawless look. A single BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment can take several years off of your appearance, but results are temporary. To maintain a smooth complexion, you will need to visit our office every three to four months for additional treatments.

Dr. Peña also offers volume replacement options including Voluma™, Sculptra® Aesthetic, and other dermal fillers, as well as facial rejuvenation through fat injections and grafts. These may be a better alternative for people seeking a nonsurgical solution that lasts longer than BOTOX® Cosmetic. Dr. Peña can discuss this in greater detail during your initial consultation.

If you are looking for the facial rejuvenation treatment best suited to help you reach your goals, please contact Peña Plastic Surgery today. Based in Naples, Dr. Peña welcomes patients from Fort Myers, Bonita Springs, and surrounding areas of Florida.
