Surgical vs Non-Surgical Cosmetic Anti-Aging Treatments

Everyone is affected by aging at some point in their lives. Working with a board-certified plastic surgeon offers many ways to help you achieve younger-looking, more vibrant skin.

While traditional plastic surgery methods, such as facelifts, are extremely effective in shedding years off your appearance, there are a growing number of patients in Kelowna seeking less invasive, non-surgical anti-aging treatments.

Whether you are seeking extensive plastic surgery or a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure such as Botox, our team of Kelowna plastic surgeons have the training and the expertise to help you achieve all your aesthetic goals.


Is Plastic Surgery Right For You?

Plastic surgery is a huge consideration and should be a decision that is taken very seriously. For some patients, it may be the best way to achieve the results they want, but for others, non-surgical options may be more suitable.

During an in-depth, personalized consultation with a plastic surgeon, they can assess your age, skin-type and aesthetic goals to determine which cosmetic treatment will best meet your unique requirements.

Non-Surgical Vs Surgical Anti-Aging Treatments

Whatever aging concerns you may have, there are many different plastic surgery & minimally invasive treatments available to help naturally rejuvenate your appearance.

Here are some different signs of aging and the treatments you may want to consider:

1. Loss of Facial Volume

In the normal course of aging there is a natural loss of facial fat and collagen, the chemical which keeps skin full and youthful looking.

However, there are other factors which can contribute to volume loss including:

  • Emotional stress
  • Lifestyle factors
  • Trauma
  • Frequent weight gain and weight loss

If you are experiencing a gradual loss of definition in areas such as the cheeks, eye sockets or lips, working with a plastic surgeon can help restore the vitality to your appearance.

Surgical Non-Surgical

One of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures in Canada is the surgical facelift.

Also known as a rhytidoplasty, facelifts tighten the skin around the face, jawline and neck to completely transform your face.

Dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are agents that are injected under the skin in a minimally-invasive procedure to restore volume to the face in areas such as the cheeks and lips.

In addition to restoring facial volume, a dermal filler treatment performed by a qualified plastic surgeon can delay and/or prevent skin sagging and slipping.

However, it’s important to note that once skin has sagged severely, only a surgical facelift can restore a youthful appearance.

2. Sagging Eyelids

Drooping or sagging eyelids often occur as you age, affecting both the way you look and your vision.  A hooded appearance and bags under your lower eyelids make you look older, tired and more severe.

While age is one of the major culprits of sagging eyelids, they can also be caused by:

  • Ptosis
  • Sun exposure
  • Disease or injury
  • Nerve problems

There are some surgical & non-surgical options available at our Kelowna clinic to improve the look of sagging eyelids.

Surgical Non-Surgical

The most popular plastic surgery procedure for drooping eyelids is blepharoplasty.

This relatively fast and simple surgery can be performed by a plastic surgeon under local anesthetic to rectify drooping eyelids and restore a more youthful appearance.

Fixing drooping eyelids without plastic surgery is more tricky than some other signs of aging.

However, depending on your individual case, wrinkle injections such as Botox or a non-surgical facelift may be able to improve your appearance.

3. Facial Lines & Wrinkles

Wrinkles and unwanted facial lines are one of the most common aging concerns worldwide. As you get older, the skin gets thinner, drier and loses its elasticity, leading to creases and lines.

Luckily, there are a number of anti-aging cosmetic treatments available to instantly rejuvenate the skin and produce long-lasting, natural-looking youthful results.

Surgical Non-Surgical

Depending on where your lines and wrinkles are, you may be a good candidate for a browlift or facelift.

Also known as a browplasty, a browlift is a plastic surgery procedure that tightens brown muscles and reduces any loose skin or excess fat in the area.

Despite only lifting the forehead, this treatment can make a dramatic difference to the entire face.

One of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world, wrinkle injections (commonly known as Botox) is the best non-invasive solutions for unwanted facial lines.

Botox works by stopping the nerve actions of the wrinkle-causing muscles, preventing lines and deep creases from forming.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
