Facelift surgery is one of the most effective ways to address aging, jowling, and saggy, wrinkled skin. However, is surgery always necessary to see a great result that makes you look years younger? Currently, there are many non-surgical facelift options available such as liquid facelifts, thread lifts, and more. Does facelift without surgery work?

The answer largely depends on the individual patient. Many patients in their late thirties, forties, sometimes early fifties have not yet seen the advanced signs of aging necessary to correct with a facelift. Therefore, many non-surgical facelift options will offer these patients results that make them look younger. While often not permanent, it can keep them looking younger until a facelift becomes necessary. 

Patients who are good candidates for facelift surgery, however, will likely see little benefit from non-surgical facelift options before surgery. Many patients do use dermal fillers, BOTOX, and other non-invasive procedures after their facelift, but need extra skin and sagging addressed first to see the best results from these non-surgical options.
