Facial Rejuvenation: The Choice Between Surgical vs Non-Surgical Procedures Discussed by Dr Lycka & Dr Cangello

Leading cosmetic dermatologist & plastic surgeon discuss when different facial rejuvenation procedures are recommended


Edmonton, AB -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/23/2014 -- Facial rejuvenation is a term which covers a range of procedures which treat the typical signs of aging. The procedures also range from non-surgical procedures such as injectable facial fillers and neuromodulators such as Botox, right through to having surgery for a full neck and face lift.

To discuss when the different procedures are most appropriate, and at what point is surgery the only solution, this week on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today on webtalkradio.net, show host, Edmonton Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka, talks with Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and experienced facial rejuvenation surgeon, Dr David Cangello from his New York City practice.

In this in-depth interview, Dr Lycka & Dr Cangello begin by discussing the different procedures and rejuvenation challenges and whether surgery or minimally invasive procedures are more suitable, and the advantages and limitations of each. They highlight that the key point when considering these procedures is that they are no longer considered in isolation: it’s not just a choice of ‘one’ procedure but rather the choice of which combination of procedures will deliver the best results. Examples are given where procedures are successfully combined such as combining the use of injectable facial fillers to add in lost facial volume, with a facelift to tighten and lift the structure of the face, and with laser resurfacing to smooth out irregularities and improve the appearance of the skin. Combining these procedures provides a natural looking rejuvenation, as compared with the over-tight almost skeletal results created by facelift surgery from years gone by.
