I am a 45 year old female from Round Rock and I’m looking to get rid of my marionette lines. Is a facelift the right answer for me?
If marionette lines are your only concern, a facelift is probably more than you need. Most patients will do well by filling in the marionette lines. This is accomplished through the use of Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra, or Belotero. In certain individuals however, this is not adequate do to the degree of descent of tissue lateral to the marionette line. In that situation a facelift may be necessary with or without filler to accomplish the aesthetic goals.
