Loss of Volume in the Face


Lighter-on-the-wallet non-invasive touch-ups 

Budget-friendly Procedure:

Dermal fillers, (hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers), from $600 per syringe

Reasons it rocks:

Quite like filling in the depression in your nose, facial fillers can be used to add volume to your face.  As Dr. Bendago explains, “It only takes about 30 minutes and you see instant results with little downtime.”

Things that make you go hmm:

Since facial fillers only last about two years, “most people need several syringes to see the most improvement,” explains Dr. Bendago, adding that some swelling and bruising are common.

Big-ticket invasive surgeries: Longer-lasting and, in most cases, permanent results

High-level fix:

Facelift, $8,000 to $20,000

Reasons it rocks:

“When doing a facelift, we can reposition the tissue underneath to restore volume while tightening the skin at the same time,” explains Dr. Lista.

Things that make you go hmm:

This is a much more invasive surgery. Dr. Lista adds that there will be bruising for a few weeks as “the internal structure is getting moved around to replace the volume you need.”
