Are You Ready for a Nip/Tuck?

When is it time to consider a face/necklift? Have you been thinking about it?? Do you look into the mirror and pull your face and neck taunt??... Oh the wonders of growing older and the price of maintaining our youthful appearance...As Nora Ephron says,"There's your neck. You know, our faces are lies, but our necks are the truth." UGH!!!

When you add up the costs and the time of liquid facelifts, (even if you are in the industry ;-) )........ is it cost effective? or is it time for a little nip- tuck. There are, of course,factors to consider. And the longer you wait- the more elasticity is lost, the greater the cost. OUCH!!

It can be a difficult decision. Unless of course, you are very opposed to going under the knife... which I am not.

The costs of Injections and fillers adds up very quickly and they are temporary. Let's face it, temporary has its pros and cons.
Pro- if you don't like the results there are quick remedies. You can actually dissolve fillers like Juvedem, Perlane, and Restylane. Or you can wait it out for a few months. Not true for Radiesse and Sculptra, which may last 1 or 2 years. On the flip side-IT IS HIGH maintenance. Once you start it's hard to stop. Very addictive. IF you choose to continue to use fillers, plan on budgeting for them, or go for it.. it will pay for itself and no more needles in your face. Except of course for a little Botox now and then :-)

One more point... please do your homework and choose a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. See his before and after photos, talk to his patients and please do not go for a quick fix. Don't go to a chain facility or think a non-surgical face-lift will really give you the result you are looking for. least we have them. :-)
