When a more youthful appearance is desired, a facelift can help to improve the visible signs of aging in your face and neck.

Bottger, M.D. at 610-355-1929 to schedule your cosmetic consultation.
A facelift is one of the best ways to treat sagging skin and create more youthful look, but there are still many misconceptions in regards to this popular procedure. Here are 3 important facts that you should know about facelifts:
- Surgical facelifts don't improve fine age spots, folds, or wrinkles. These types of imperfections are on the surface-layer of the skin and will require different treatments, such as BOTOX, filler treatments, or skin resurfacing treatment.
- Facelifts typically treat the lower portion of the face. Those looking to improve mid-level features such as the eyes of forehead may want to add an eyelid lift or brow lift at the same time as their facelift.
- Advertisements for non-surgical facelifts aren't actually facelifts. These non-surgical treatments typically consist of BOTOX or fillers to aid in adding volume and smoothing wrinkles, the outcome will not be the same as that of a surgical facelift.
