There is a dental alternative to facelift surgery
A surgical facelift targets the middle and lower areas of the face. During facelift surgery, skin is removed, and fat and tissue are repositioned to produce a lifted and more youthful appearance – sometimes reducing apparent age by as much as 10 years. Facelifts in the dental office, by comparison, are non-surgical and can correct the lower one-third of the face.
Facelift surgery is largely considered safe, but it is a surgical procedure and comes with risks such as excessive bleeding, infection, and irregular wound healing. What’s more, a surgical procedure will require a recovery period during which your activities will be limited, and discomfort is to be expected. Even worse, bruising and swelling can obscure results for several months and, even after healing is complete, incisions will need to be protected from the sun and daily care may become significantly more complex.
There is a dental alternative to facelift surgery that doesn’t require incisions or an extended recovery period. Nor does it come with risks like excessive bleeding or poor wound healing. In fact, facelift performed by a dentist can produce a fuller, symmetrical, and more youthful appearance without any skin removal or the forceful manipulation of facial muscles as well as correct the lower 1/3 of the face.
Less invasive and extreme, the changes brought about by nonsurgical facelift alternatives are natural-looking and complementary to surrounding features. If you are interested in learning more, call our downtown Nashville office and schedule a consultation with Dr. Clark today.
