NEW YORK, Dec. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In a new study released by Aesthetic Surgery Journal, Andrew Jacono, M.D., F.A.C.S. and Director of the New York Center for Facial Plastic & Laser Surgery, revealed original data that showed women are abandoning nonsurgical antiaging treatments for facelifts in their early forties, on average. While patients perceived a four-year reduction in age after nonsurgical treatments, they perceived an eight-year reduction in age after undergoing initial facelifts.
The study, entitled "Nonsurgical Facial Rejuvenation Procedures in Patients Under 50 Prior to Undergoing Facelift: Habits, Costs and Results," found that patients spent an average of $7,000 on nonsurgical treatments before choosing to undergo a facelift. Of these patients, more than half did not regret their initial expenditures on nonsurgical treatments and would choose the same path if given the opportunity to relive the journey.
The retrospective study looked at 157 female patients before age 50 that underwent initial facelifts between January 1, 2003 and December 31, 2013.
"While many of my patients seek noninvasive antiaging treatments, today's minimally invasive, rapid recovery facelifts offer the most permanent solution to facial aging with the highest level of satisfaction," says Dr. Jacono. "Since there is no 'one-size-fits-all' approach to facial rejuvenation and surgery may not be right for everyone, I recommend that all facial plastic surgeons incorporate nonsurgical techniques into their practice to best serve the individual needs of the modern patient."
