Botox or Necklift - Which Is The Right Option For You?

Okanagan Health Surgery Centre Botox or Necklift - Which Is The Right Option For You?

Looking to dramatically rejuvenate your facial appearance? From traditional necklifts to customized Botox treatments, we have everything you need to enhance your features and create a youthful, beautiful look. 


Cosmetic surgery to rejuvenate the face is a common, effective, and time-tested way to reduce the signs of facial aging. The right procedures for your needs, when carried out by a cosmetic surgeon, can help you address:

  • sagging skin
  • unwanted facial lines and wrinkles
  • volume loss
  • age spots

However, despite the proven benefits of facial plastic surgery such as face and necklifts, more and more patients are turning towards non-surgical procedures such as dermal fillers and Botox.  With so many options available, it can be difficult to know which procedure is best for you. 

 

Botox: An Innovative Approach to Aging Gracefully

Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. As you get older, your skin gets thinner, drier, and less elastic, leading to creases and lines on your face. Botox is one of the most popular and minimally-invasive facial rejuvenation skin treatments and can be used to treat a number of aging concerns, such as:

  • frown lines
  • crow’s feet
  • forehead lines
  • lip lines

How does it work? Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the activity of the facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. When injected, Botox blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles so that they can no longer contract, causing wrinkles to soften and relax.

When will I see the results? While you’ll notice instant changes to your skin, you’ll be able to enjoy the full benefits of a Botox treatment within 1-2 weeks of your treatment.

How long will the results last? The results of Botox are long-lasting, but not permanent, and a treatment is required every 12 weeks.

What is the recovery time? One of the biggest benefits of this skin treatment is that it requires no downtime, so you can squeeze in an appointment even on a busy day.

When Non-Surgical Treatments Aren’t Enough

As beneficial as Botox is, and despite its lower cost, there are cases when sometimes surgical intervention, such as a face or necklift, is a better option for achieving facial rejuvenation. This is particularly true for patients whose wrinkles are more pronounced, usually due to age. Additionally, droopping or sagging skin in the jaw area can have a significant impact on your face shape and profile, creating a heavier or more tired look. In this these cases, a necklift may be the best way for a patient to restore their face's youthful contours. 

What is a Necklift?

A necklift, also known as a lower rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic procedure designed to improve visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck. For patients who aren’t ready for a full facelift, but notice excess wrinkling or loose skin in the lower part of the face, a necklift is the ideal solution.

Which is Better: A Necklift or Botox?

Decisions regarding cosmetic surgery and aesthetic enhancement are unique to each patient.

Which treatment is right for you will depend on many factors, including:

  • your age and appearance;
  • the severity of the areas of your appearance that you're unhappy with;
  • the time you can spend recovering;
  • financial considerations;
  • your general feelings about cosmetic surgery.

During an in-depth consultation with one of our plastic surgeons, you will discuss your needs, aesthetic goals, and medical history to better determine which cosmetic treatment is right for you.
