Question : With so many less invasive alternatives to a traditional surgical facelift, when is the traditional lift the best option?
Answer : Even though there are so many alternatives, you may be surprised that for most of the patients looking for facial rejuvenation in my office, I still offer them the facelift procedure. The reason is that the traditional facelift is tried and tested with good results over a long period. Many of the newer techniques are not being tested and the final result is not well known. Also, some of the newer techniques do not have the same longevity as the traditional facelift.
