Facelift vs FillersDr Rajat Gupta
At some point, we all begin exhibiting signs of ageing, particularly on our faces. These signs manifest as sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss. Nobody wants to look older, but the best part is facelifts and fillers are the most common options that can help you to rejuvenate your facial appearance.
But people often ask their surgeon if there is any difference between a facelift and filler and which treatment is right for them. Should they go for a liquid facelift in Delhi?
Facelifts and fillers are two different types of cosmetic treatments that can be used to improve the appearance of the face. Let’s understand the difference between a facelift surgery and fillers.
Difference Between Facelifts and Fillers
Here are the differences between facelifts and fillers.
Facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that tightens and lifts the skin on the face and neck to improve the facial appearance. Typically, it treats wrinkles, sagging skin, and extra fat deposits on the face. Facelift surgery can be performed on both the face and neck and is typically done under general anaesthesia.
On the other hand, fillers are injectable substances that add volume to the skin and fill in wrinkles and lines. Several types of fillers are available, including hyaluronic acid fillers, calcium hydroxylapatite fillers, and poly-L-lactic acid fillers. Fillers are typically injected into the skin using a fine needle and are usually done in a doctor’s office or clinic. They can add volume to the cheeks, fill wrinkles and lines around the mouth and nose, and enhance lips. The type of injectable used and the treated area determine the liquid facelift cost.

Facelift surgery involves making incisions in the skin and repositioning or removing excess skin and fat. The results of a facelift are generally more dramatic and long-lasting than those of dermal fillers. The results of a facelift can last for several years, depending on the individual’s age, skin quality, and other factors.
The results of a liquid facelift in Delhi are typically temporary, lasting anywhere from a few months to a year or more, depending on the type of filler used and the area being treated.
Facelift surgery is an invasive procedure, and the recovery can take several weeks, during which time the patient may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort. You should take at least a week off work to recover and avoid strenuous activity for several weeks.
On the contrary, fillers are non-surgical treatments that typically have a shorter recovery time. Some patients may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site, but these side effects are mild. Most people can return to their normal activities immediately after a filler treatment. The cosmetic surgeon in Delhi will provide you with post-operative instructions to achieve the best outcome.
Choose the Right Procedure!
While both facelifts and fillers, are effective ways to enhance facial appearance, these carry potential side effects and complications. Therefore, you must consult a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine the best treatment option. They will evaluate your needs and recommend the most appropriate treatment based on your individual goals and concerns.
