Is Minimally Invasive Better?
When it comes to getting plastic surgery from Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants, you have two different choices: you can get a surgery done, or you can take a more minimally invasive approach. With things like Botox and fillers maintaining popularity amongst both men and women, it poses the question “Is minimally invasive better?”. From the results you want to the recovery process, this article will discuss both the pros and cons of minimally invasive procedures to help you decide if they’re something you should consider. Read on to learn more.
Botox and fillers are great at treating collagen loss, fine lines and wrinkles, and even adding more volume to your face. However, because they are temporary, they only last the upwards of a year. If you are looking for tighter results that are more permanent, then you will want to consider a surgical procedure like a facelift. Although not completely permanent, a facelift will buy you years rather than a couple of months.
The Recovery Process
The biggest benefit of a minimally invasive procedure is the recovery process. During a surgical procedure like a facelift, you will have to undergo a fairly extensive recovery that will take a few weeks. And, although our staff at Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants will ensure that you feel as comfortable as possible during both your surgery and recovery, it can be still be painful. With minimally invasive procedures like Botox and fillers, there is no recovery time involved— which means that you can come into our office on your lunch break and go back to work right away. Additionally, most patients only experience a small amount of bruising afterward which typically subsides after a day or two
Minimally invasive isn’t always better but it does have a better recovery process. If you are choosing between a facelift or injections, consider the results and the recovery. To learn more about these procedures, contact Associated Plastic Surgeons & Consultants today and schedule a consultation.
