Face lifting and Fillers to Pump Up My Face?

Can I have a facelift to fix the wrinkles and have fillers to pump up my face? Can I do them simultaneously?

Dr. Azizzadeh’s Expert Answer

Yes. I often recommend that my facelift patients also consider filler injections after the surgery. A facelift addresses skin laxity by removing and tightening excess skin, while fillers add volume back to the face. Both of these procedures are important components of facial rejuvenation. Fat grafting is another great treatment to combine with a facelift. Fat grafting can also add volume back to your face but will last longer than fillers. Combining the surgical and non-surgical procedures creates very natural looking results.
