Sagging skin and wrinkles can make you look older than you feel, and you may desire a more permanent solution than fillers and BOTOX®.
Long-lasting results are available through a natural-looking facelift with John F. Zavell, MD, FACS.
At our Toledo, OH, office, we use the SMAS technique which won't give you an overly tightened appearance, a common fear of patients.
What Is a Facelift? And What Is the SMAS Technique?
Facelifts, known in the medical world as rhytidectomies, are a popular facial cosmetic procedure among men and women who want to reverse the effects of aging and stress.
Benefits of a Facelift
Although BOTOX and fillers like BELOTERO BALANCE® are popular nonsurgical procedures that target wrinkles, a facelift is a more comprehensive and permanent solution. Because BOTOX only prevents wrinkles for a few months and fillers smooth wrinkles and address volume loss for a few years at most, these treatments cannot provide the same kind of long-lasting enhancements as a facelift.
Dr. Zavell believes a facelift should give patients a healthier, more rejuvenated appearance. Our plastic surgeon provides a personalized touch and decades of surgical experience to help you achieve natural-looking results.
Multiple Concerns Addressed
SMAS facelifts with our plastic surgeon can address signs of aging in the lower face region, jawline, and neck. You can simultaneously address concerns like sagging skin, jowls, wrinkles, fat deposits, and lost volume with one facelift surgery.
