Question: I’ve heard that injectables can be used as non-surgical versions of certain procedures, like a facelift, eyelid lift, nose job, etc. How effective are these?
Answer: Non surgical rhinoplasty, non surgical facelift or non surgical liquid cheek lifts may be done. Non surgical eyelid or brow lifts are also possible. However, patient selection is key. These non surgical minimally invasive in office injections should be treated with respect and care and only an experienced board certified plastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon or dermatologist should be doing the injections after proper diagnosis and dialogue. Unfortunately too many people go to spas and gyms and their OBGYN or family doctor and get injections by persons who are not trained in facial analysis. Non surgical options are only one of many options and the patient should be informed of ALL of their options.
