Fact vs. Fiction: The Truth About Facial Rejuvenation

Injectable wrinkle fillers are all the rage these days, but Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Stephen Prendiville says they are not a solution for everyone.

Dr. Prendiville says he sees patients who come to his office for Botox or one of the other facial fillers when what they really need is a facelift.

“There is fake news that fillers and injectables are all you’ll ever need to keep looking your youthful best, but nothing could be further from the truth,” he said. “The gold standard for facial rejuvenation is – and always has been – a facelift.”

Dr. Prendiville will separate fact from fiction at a free seminar he is hosting Friday, Feb. 18, at Connor’s Steak and Seafood Restaurant at Gulf Coast Town Center in South Fort Myers. The seminar begins at 11:30 a.m. with a light lunch. The seminar is free but reservations are required by calling 239-437-3900. Space is limited.

“Fillers and injectables work well as stand-alone treatments for women in their 30s and 40s, but cannot be considered the best treatment available after this period in life. Women in their 50s, 60s and 70s will require more substantial treatments to achieve spectacular results. Results obtainable with surgery aren’t possible with fillers and injectables and people need to be honest about that,” Dr. Prendiville said.

There is a cost factor involved. A facelift or eyelid surgery cost more than fillers, but there is a disadvantage to fillers too.

“A filler will only last about six to eight months and then you’ll need to keep repeating it to maintain the same look. A facelift may be more expensive initially but it can last 10 or more years,” he said.

Dr. Prendiville said a patient in her late 60s commented to him recently that she has done fillers for seven years. She realized that for the amount of money she spent on fillers, she could have paid for a facelift. And it would have been permanent instead of temporary.

Using before and after pictures of actual patients, Dr. Prendiville will discuss the latest advances in facelifts, eyelid lifts, nose surgery, lasers, and reconstructive surgery. He also will review injectable wrinkle fillers Botox®, Sculptra®, Juvederm®; Restylane®, Restylane Silk®, Radiesse®, Voluma®, Vollure®, and Revanesse Versa® for deeper wrinkles and lines.
