Some patients come in who are probably good candidates for facelift but will come in requesting facial fillers and laser skin tightening procedures. In general I tell patients that laser skin tightening which I also have in my office can probably improve your skin between 10 to 20 percent at most. It is not a substitute for facelift and skin tightening for other body parts is not a substitute for the other excisional procedures that I do. Fillers can help provide volume to the face for patients that are maybe bored enough of needing a facelift because basically of short facial depletion then short facial fillers like fat whether its hydraulic acid products are good products to use to lay the need for a facelift procedure. But in general if a patient needs a facelift I think those patients that then get overfilled look unnatural and I think that in general a balance between incisional procedures to reduce the laxity of the skin and facial filler volume are good procedures to combine to give a natural result not overdoing one versus the other.
