Expert recommends facelift and filler combination

Consumers who want to improve the appearance of their face should be aware that cosmetic surgery and injectable fillers are likely to produce differing effects.

According to Dr Richard D'Amico, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (Asps), facelifts have started to increase in popularity again as consumers are realising the difference in results.

The expert said: "Our latest statistics show patients now know they get the best results when surgery and injectables are used together.

"Facelifts are critical to lift and reposition skin and underlying tissues, while injectables are vital for plumping and restoring volume."

Dr D'Amico recommends having a facelift, and then maintaining the repositioning with fillers and injectables.

He added: "If you have jowls the size of Kansas, you can't expect any injection on earth to move them back where they belong."
