Alternatives to a Face-Lift

Face-lifts are out! At least that’s what Harper’s Bazaar says in its article on why face-lifts are truly dead! And it’s no wonder why. Today, we have the technology for nonsurgical cosmetic enhancements that can give you the look of a face-lift without any of the hassle of surgery and long downtimes.

At DiGeronimo MD Advanced Plastic Surgery right here in Miami, Florida, Dr. Ernest and his team are here to provide you with the latest in cosmetic enhancements, that’s why we’ve compiled this helpful guide to how you can get a face-lift without ever having to go under the knife.

What a nonsurgical face-lift is

Nonsurgical face-lifts are made possible today because of all of the advancements in the field of plastic surgery. Today, by combining treatments like fillers and skin-tightening treatments, you can get the stunning look of a face-lift without ever having to have one.

Here are some of the treatments that you can opt for to get the look of a face-lift:

Dermal fillers

These are your go-tos when it comes to nonsurgical face-lifts. Dermal fillers inject smooth gel-like serums into your face. These fillers usually contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, which is naturally produced by your body.

Dermal fillers are great because they can both smooth out wrinkles and plump up areas of your face that you want to enhance, like your cheeks, lips, and even your nose. 


Yes! Good old-fashioned Botox is an excellent solution because no other treatment offers the level of wrinkle reduction that Botox can. It even smooths out some of your more dramatic wrinkles, giving you a perfectly smooth complexion.

This is not your grandmother’s Botox. These days, we’re more skilled in the application, and can give your face a naturally smoothed-out look using Botox. 

Radiofrequency treatments

Radiofrequency skin tightening uses an applicator that delivers powerful yet safe radiofrequency waves to the deep layers of your skin. These waves cause minor damage to your skin cells, which ups their production of collagen and elastin, the proteins that keep your skin looking young, tight, and hydrated, naturally. 

Thread lift

A thread lift is essentially a face-lift without the surgery. It can be done in under two hours and involves lifting your face with expertly placed surgical threads. The threads are entirely undetectable and the effects of a face-lift can last for about 18 months.
