Facelift or Filler: Which is Right For You? Beverly Hills, CA
Beverly Hills CA Oculoplastic Surgeon

The traditional method of going “under the knife” for a youthful look is being rapidly overshadowed by the growing popularity of non-invasive cosmetic techniques.

For example, JuvedermⓇ is a facial filler that more clients are opting for over surgery to achieve a facelift-like look.

A facial filler is applied by a trained doctor, who injects a serum just beneath the skin to smooth out wrinkles and plump up weak areas.

Which route is right for you? Here are a few things to keep in mind.

The younger you are, the less likely you are to want to opt for surgery. Make the most of your body’s youthful tissues and stick with conservative treatments like injectable fillers. Surgery is a more probable option as you age, since the effects of topical treatments and fillers are usually more mild than dramatic.
Do you want a fast fix with minimal downtime for recovery? Fillers are the quicker option. You’re more likely to have a quick outpatient procedure with minimal side-effects.
Fillers and surgery can be pretty comparable in terms of cost overall. A surgery is a bigger one-time investment, but fillers are not as permanent and so they require touch-ups to maintain their effect.
What Needs Attention?
Which cosmetic treatment you should get depends on what your skin needs.

A few wrinkles is one thing, but a lot of sagging skin is another. Fillers can only achieve so much good! You may need to consider something like an eyelid lift if you have droopy lids.

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am to have found you. I am deeply grateful for you, for your generosity and caring nature as pertaining to my medical condition. As you know, I was apprehensive about having further surgery, but you are and have been reassuring and confident in the type of procedure you would perform in order to fix my eyelid from the beginning. The fact that you are not pushy and gave me the time and space to make the decision on my own allowed me to prepare myself mentally and emotionally, that really made a difference. Besides from that, your continuous generosity made me confident that you were the right doctor for the task at hand. You will never know how appreciative I am of that. I would also like to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. I have not felt this comfortable in years. My parents are also very grateful since this was my 14th surgery. You have a true gift. Thank you again for your patience, time, concern, and overall care. I pray that God continues to give you strength to help people who truly need life-changing medical procedures.

Dr. Parsa is an amazing doctor. Warm and very caring. I had my eyes done a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Parsa likes to take the conservative approach which I greatly appreciate in a doctor when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I also go to Dr. Parsa for Botox and he always knows just the right amount. The staff in Dr. Parsa's office are all terrific!
