So you love your mini facelift. Now what? We’ve got you covered. One of the most exciting things about growing Dr. Brent J. Smith’s 30-year facial plastic surgery practice with an expanded medical aesthetic offering is that we get to help you prolong, highlight and maximize your post-surgical results.

At Smith Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Aesthetic Center we’re building on three decades of facial cosmetic expertise by offering exceptional nonsurgical enhancements to help you maintain your refreshed look for life. And, our team couldn’t be more excited to guide a new generation of patients through the exploration and selection of the right solution from all of the advanced nonsurgical options available today.

Understanding maintenance after a facelift

Once you make the investment in facial plastic surgery, it’s imperative that you understand the best complimentary treatments to maintain your new look. While facial plastic surgery is meant to last a long time, the more you maintain your skin’s appearance and critical support structures like collagen, the better your results will look over the long term.

Think of it as buying a luxury automobile. You don’t just get to drive it off the lot and call it a day. Over the years, you need to maintain your beloved car with oil changes, mileage services, new tires, insurance coverage, etc. Or you could think of having a facelift like investing in a home. It’s a big decision, as well as a big asset that you need to protect through routine upkeep and attention.

One of the best ways to maximize your investment on a facelift is to schedule regular visits to Smith Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Aesthetic Center. Our nonsurgical treatments can enhance your post-surgical features and keep you looking as fresh and young as you feel. Plus, we just love seeing our patients and assisting them with common questions and concerns they have about aging, skincare and the effects of advanced nonsurgical treatments such as Botox.

Fillers, facials, and skincare to protect your investment

Botox is one of the most popular and effective non-surgical procedures on the market, whether it’s used to prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place or to maintain a youthful appearance before and after facial plastic surgery. Each day, thousands of people receive this trusted injectable. And you can rest assured that at Smith Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Aesthetic Center we use only approved Botox and dermal filler – and in just the right amounts for your individual face.

The Botox injectable is designed to treat the upper third of the face, including forehead wrinkles, lines between the brows and crow’s feet. It works by “relaxing” the muscles that get overtaxed by constant expression on the human face.

It’s only natural that we make repetitive movements to squint and smile, for example, but these micro-movements can lead to dramatic wrinkles over time. Botox works by gently calming the tiny muscles around the forehead, eyebrows, and corners of the eyes. Not only has Botox proven effective for temporarily fixing already formed wrinkles, but it can also help prevent new wrinkles from forming, all while still maintaining a very natural look.

But there are also dermal fillers, laser treatments and medically directed skincare that can be incredibly helpful for maintaining the post-surgical look you’ve envisioned. The skin treatments at Smith Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Aesthetic Center range from fillers for different areas of the face to laser-led facials to treatments for acne, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, melisma, and rosacea. Just ask our skincare professionals which of these are right for you:  

Facial injectables: Botox (eyes and forehead), Juvederm and Restylane (mouth and all-over volumizing)

Laser skin services: fractional CO2 laser skin renewal, hyperpigmented lesion treatment, vein therapy, laser hair removal for the face

Clinical skincare: SkinMedica, Image, and Elta MD professional skincare lines

Facial treatments: laser facial, glow skin treatment, dermapeel, acne facial, microdermabrasion and chemical peels

Upkeep is easy with our loyalty program

When a facelift is done properly the first time – something you won’t have to worry about with Dr. Smith – you most likely won’t need to undergo another surgical procedure. But even with the best facial plastic surgeries on the planet, patients still need to consider regular maintenance. Results just look better when you stay on top of them.

While nonsurgical aesthetic treatments cost significantly less than a facelift, having treatments regularly may be a concern for those on tighter budgets. That’s why we’re creating a loyalty program: so, you can save money; we can see your smiling face more often; and you can keep that smile on your face with the most beautiful facial enhancements in the industry.
