Question : Would it be advisable to have a facelift while botox and fillers are still in effect? I had both of these procedures done within the last year.
Answer : If the filler is a short-acting filler and the effect of the filler has past, and similarly if the Botox was injected a long time ago, then I think you could have the facelift. I like for my facelift patients to have no other factors to consider in the healing in order to get the best result. It’s possible if there is some weakness of the muscle after surgery or any post-op problems that it may be hard to differentiate whether it’s related to post-op swelling or healing or complications to surgery due to prior injection.
