If you have concerns about the appearance of your face, there are a lot of options out there for you. One question on many patients’ minds is whether or not surgery is right for them. After all, sometimes an injectable is all you need to look your best. Additionally, maybe you’re not ready for surgery or aren’t sure if you are. At Karolak Facial Plastic Surgeon, we’re here to help you decide on the right technique for you, be it surgical or non-surgical.
Non-Surgical – Silhouette InstaLift®
First, let’s take a look at our non-surgical option. Silhouette InstaLift® is our preferred procedure for people who don’t feel quite ready for surgery but still have some concerns with wrinkles, contouring, and skin laxity. Silhouette InstaLift® is a minimally-invasive procedure in which medical-grade sutures are inserted at very precise depths for optimal lift and contouring. The sutures are outfitted with knots and soft cones to naturally trigger collagen production. As an added bonus, they are designed to dissolve over time, meaning fewer office visits as they wear down naturally.
While the results are not as dramatic as those from a surgical facelift, Silhouette InstaLift® is a good option for patients who want a subtle, but effective rejuvenation technique. Additionally, it is ideal for those with a busy lifestyle. Results can be seen right away with steady improvement over time. There is no downtime and swelling subsides after 1-2 weeks.
Surgical – Dr. Karolak’s Signature Facelift
Facelifts are a household name in the aesthetic surgical industry, and for good reason— the results are more dramatic than their non-surgical counterparts and the results last the longest. While we can’t halt the aging process, a facelift can act almost as a rewind button. The results can take years off of your appearance.
Dr. Karolak has developed and refined techniques in surgical facial rejuvenation that deliver the very best natural-looking results. His signature lift is an Advanced SMAS Facelift developed to restore loose facial muscles back to a more youthful-looking position.
Facelifts are ideal for those looking for a dramatic solution to lines, wrinkles, and volume loss brought on by aging. While recovery and downtime are significantly longer than non-surgical procedures, the payoff is longer-lasting and a better solution for those who want a customizable procedure tailored to their current bone structure and aging patterns.

After my face lift I had some fillers and Botox done and as usual Dr. Karolak was great. He is very informing and will make sure I keep looking natural and not overdone. I will be patient forever. Thank you Dr. Karolak.
