Surgical vs. Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Procedures
The decision to have a facial rejuvenation procedure performed can be difficult. There are numerous surgical and non-surgical options available, and it can be difficult to determine which is the best option for you. Here is a comparison of the two most common types of facial rejuvenation procedures: surgical and non-surgical, as well as their advantages and disadvantages, so you can decide which is best for you.
To improve the appearance of the face, various surgical procedures can be used. Three of the most common procedures are blepharoplasty, rhytidectomy, and rhinoplasty. Blepharoplasty, also referred to as eyelid surgery, is a common cosmetic procedure that involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids.
Another common cosmetic procedure used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face is rhytidectomy, also known as facelift surgery. Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is typically performed to improve the appearance of the nose or to correct a deformity.

When it comes to cosmetic procedures, there are several non-surgical options available today. Non-surgical facelifts, dermal fillers, laser treatments, and Botox are all popular options for improving one’s appearance.
Botox injections are used to temporarily smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. Dermal fillers are used to restore volume to areas of the face that have lost volume, such as the cheekbones and lips. By removing damaged layers of skin, laser skin resurfacing can help to improve the texture and tone of the skin. Facelifts are more invasive procedures that tighten loose skin, remove excess fat, and smooth wrinkles.
- Less expensive than surgical procedures
- No anesthesia required
- Little to no recovery time
- The results are not as dramatic as surgical procedures.
