Making Myself Feel More Beautiful

After I had four kids, I could tell that my dedication to my children had really caused some problems with my body. I was left wondering what to do, how to stay in shape, and how to move on with my life after children. I wanted to feel like myself again, so I started looking for a great place to help me to make a few surgical changes. I was able to find a cosmetic surgeon that truly understood my needs, and he did incredible work. This blog is for anyone out there who wants to make themselves feel better than ever before.


Fillers Or Facelift: Which Is Best For You?

If you've been unhappy with the look of your face in the mirror lately, the good news is that there are plenty of things you can do about it. Cosmetic procedures abound these days, but most people opt for either fillers or a facelift. The challenge lies in determining which one is the better fit for your needs. Here are the key questions to ask yourself as you decide.

Are you worried more about wrinkles or sagging?

Wrinkles and sagging are often discussed as if they are one and the same. The two do share some similarities. They are both brought on or worsened by thinning skin as you age. They can both make you look older than you'd like. But wrinkles are, as the name suggests, folds in the skin. Sagging skin simply hangs.

If sagging is your primary concern, then a facelift tends to be a better choice. Some really intensive filler injections may improve the sagging somewhat, but they'll never erase it completely. For wrinkles, a facelift is often overkill, as there are numerous filler injections that can camouflage your wrinkles effectively for months at a time.

How much downtime can you handle?

These days, most facelifts are done using smaller incisions, which means the healing process is shorter than it used to be. But still, you'll need to be away from work for at least a few days, and it can be weeks before you're able to work out or do physical labor. If you have this time to spare, then a facelift is within reach. But if not, you may be better off opting for fillers. Even if they don't erase all of your sagging, they can get rid of the wrinkles and at least give you a little control over the sagging without the need for a long recovery. In fact, you can go back to your normal routine immediately after filler injections.

Can you handle touch-ups?

Today's filler injections usually last anywhere from 6 to 24 months. This is not a ton of maintenance, but if the idea of continually having to get injections bothers you, then you may want to opt for a facelift instead. One surgical procedure, and you'll get years of a tighter, toned look.

If you're still not sure whether to get filler injections or a facelift, reach out to a cosmetic clinic like Capitis Medical and Aesthetics. They can help you weigh the pros and cons of both options.
