Liquid Facelifts vs. Surgical Facelifts: Advantages of Each to Be Explained at Seminar
By: Quigley Eye Specialists
The seminar begins at 11:30 a.m. with a light lunch at the Naples Beach & Golf Club, 851 Gulfshore Blvd. N. The seminar is free, but reservations are required by calling 239-437-3900. Space is limited.
"Liquid facelifts are the newest trend in facial rejuvenation because there is no surgery, no anesthesia required and no downtime," said Dr. Prendiville, who also is director of the cosmetic division of Quigley Eye Specialists. "Patients love it because they can go about their usual activities immediately afterward."
A recent filler has joined a long list of injectables that Dr. Prendiville said can enhance cheek volume and restore youthfulness. "Revanesse Versa is specifically targeted for deep-set wrinkles and fine lines. It is a slightly thicker formulation that is injected into the mid to deep dermis to correct more pronounced lines and wrinkles like nasolabial folds," he said
Revanesse Versa is among a series of injectable fillers that Dr. Prendiville uses to minimize or erase sagging, increase fullness in the cheeks and reduce fine lines and wrinkles without surgery.
Among the injectables to be discussed are:Juvederm Vollure™, Juvederm Voluma®, Juvederm Volbella®, Sculptra®, and Fat transfer, which utilizes fat from the abdomen, thighs or other areas that is injected into the face to fill acne scars and sunken areas of the face.
Dr. Prendiville also will discuss other fillers, such as Radiesse®, Restylane®, Botox® Cosmetic, Dysport® and others, as well as eyelid lifts, nose surgery, lasers and reconstructive surgery.
"These injectables are the newest medical breakthroughs in facial rejuvenation, but they are temporary, unlike a surgical facelift," he said. "Most injectables need to be repeated every four to six months to maintain that youthful appearance. Surgical facelifts, on the other hand, are permanent and can last 10 years or longer."
The liquid facelift is appropriate for patients with mild to moderate aging changes. Severe facial lines and deep folds in the skin require a surgical facelift, he said.
In addition to a light lunch, attendees will be able to make an appointment for a free consultation with Dr. Prendiville.
Dr. Prendiville is the only Fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon in Fort Myers who is certified by both the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery
