Fact Vs. Fiction: The Truth About Facial Rejuvenation
Free Seminar Planned for January 17 in Bonita Springs to Explain the Difference
Injectable wrinkle fillers are all the rage these days, but Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Stephen Prendiville says they are not a solution for everyone.
Dr. Prendiville says he sees patients who come to his office for Botox or one of the other facial fillers when what they really need is a facelift.
“There is fake news that fillers and injectables are all you’ll ever need to keep looking your youthful best, but nothing could be further from the truth,” he said. “The gold standard for facial rejuvenation is – and always has been – a facelift.”
Dr. Prendiville will separate fact from fiction at a free seminar he is hosting Friday, Jan. 17, at Bonita Bay Country Club in Bonita Bay. The seminar begins at 11:30 a.m. with a light lunch. The seminar is free but reservations are required by calling 239-437-3900. Space is limited.
According to the most recent data available from the American Academy of Plastic Surgeons, there were 1.7 million cosmetic surgery procedures such as facelifts and eyelid lifts in the U.S. in 2017 The number of non-invasive cosmetic procedures such as Botox and fillers dwarfed that number with 15.7 million procedures in 2017.
“Fillers and injectables work well as stand-alone treatments for women in their 30s and 40s, but cannot be considered the best treatment available after this period in life. Women in their 50s, 60s and 70s will require more substantial treatments to achieve spectacular results. Results obtainable with surgery aren’t possible with fillers and injectables and people need to be honest about that,” Dr. Prendiville said.
