Here’s What You Should Know About Loose-Skin Surgery
Will fillers do the same thing as a face-lift? Apparently, that’s a no. Melissa Doft, MD, tells us, “When a patient truly has extra skin, a loose neck, or jowls, fillers and ultherapy will not resolve the problem. Only a face-lift can remove excess skin, tightening a neck and repositioning your jowls. Fillers are great to add volume to cheeks and nasolabial folds. Ultherapy is best for a patient who wants to tighten their skin but who does not have extra skin.”
However, sometimes you can combine fillers with a surgical procedure that will remove loose skin.
