Will my nasolabial creases be improved with a facelift?

Answer:

The nasolabial creases run alongside the mouth up to the nose and often are accentuated with smiling. As a person ages the soft tissues deflate and sag and the nasolabial folds often become deeper. Sometimes facial fillers like the hyaluronic acid products can help improve this area. Fat grafting can do the same and may be a more permanent solution. Facelift techniques can be performed that will lift tissues around the cheek and will help soften the nasolabial folds. Effacing or completely flattening the folds can be performed but is not recommended. Nasolabial folds are part of the normal facial anatomy and should be present to some extent. Removing them completely causes patients to look a bit “robotic.” Back to Questions
