Botox + Laser: Botox for crows feet lines (prevention more then correction). Laser for crows feet and lower lids (both prevention and correction). Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is not really the mainstay anymore for the lower eyelid, but is a great choice for the upper lids.

Pain : Pain control after facelift surgery is usually achieved with a combination medication such as oxycodone and Acetaminophen (this combination is the same as percocet). Typically patients need such heavy pain medication for only 2-3 days. After that, Acetaminophen alone or a safe anti-inflammatory, like celebrex, (celecoxib) can be used. The lifestyle lift is a brand-named procedure, but it typically represents a "mini-facelift" approach.

Doctor with ultherapy machine: will this procedure also smooth out fine wrinkles around my eyes and on the forehead (this way no botox each 3 mos)?

Doctor with ultherapy machine: will this procedure also smooth out fine wrinkles around my eyes and on the forehead (this way no botox each 3 mos)?

NO: Ultherapy machines use focused energy of ultrasound to heat deeper structures. The problem is like with many other devices, that this energy is not delivered and absorbed evenly and the long term results are far from good. With eventual destruction of fat under the skin and hollowing of the face as a result. ...Read more
