Since the upper face doesn't age as quickly as the lower face and neck, some avoid surgery thinking it’s unnecessary and instead seek other, less effective, nonsurgical options. While surgery can seem daunting, when your neck area does not match your upper facial appearance, a neck lift may be the best and most cost-effective solution to get the permanent results you desire. In just one procedure, you look and feel years younger!

Do Non-Surgical Face Lifts Work?

By Orlando Florida Plastic Surgery

Yes, they do! You can achieve very nice improvements of facial aging changes with fillers, fat injections, Botox and laser treatments, all of which are non-invasive face lifts with no down time. As we age, the fat in our faces atrophies or is lost. The effect on our face is similar to what happens when you let the air out of a balloon. The skin loosens and folds and lines or wrinkles appear.


If you’ve been considering Botox, consider the side effects and be sure to choose an experienced medical professional. The best practitioners know the correct sites of injection to avoid side effects such as droopy eyelids. Additionally, a small, highly concentrated dose of Botox is less likely to spread from the injection site than a large diluted dose.


Why Botox? Let’s start with the benefits of Botox as a wrinkle corrector. Where do wrinkles come from? A wrinkle in the skin is typically formed perpendicular to a contracting muscle located directly beneath it. For example, the muscle in the forehead is a vertical muscle, and when it contracts (such as when you raise your eyebrows), the lines that form (wrinkles) will be horizontal. Likewise, the two muscles that are responsible for the frown lines are positioned slightly horizontally between the eyebrows, so when they contract, the frown lines appear vertical.


Botox, or onabotulinumtoxinA, is used to treat various ailments. The three main benefits of Botox are muscle spasm control, severe underarm sweating and cosmetic improvement. In this article we concentrate on the cosmetic applications of Botox. Botox Cosmetic is used for the temporary smoothing of glabellar lines (also called frown lines), which are the lines between your eyebrows that can make you look tired, unhappy or angry.


Let’s face it. Very few of us are 100% comfortable with the way we look. Whether it’s trying to keep up with social expectations or meeting our own personal goals, most of us have at least one area of our body that we poke and wince at every time we strip down for a shower – or for other activities.


Get the Red Carpet Look with Our New Oxylight Facial

By Orlando Florida Plastic Surgery

Do you wonder how celebrities always seem to have beautiful, glowing skin? Hint: they weren’t born with it. While there are many skin care treatments out there, the latest, and most sought after treatment is the Oxylight Facial. The Oxylight “Red Carpet Facial” uses the latest technology by infusing oxygen into your skin with little recovery time.


Don’t wait! Now is the perfect time to get that perfect skin. You can look younger and more beautiful without going through advanced surgery and having a lengthy downtime. But with all of the acne treatments, micro-needling and chemical peels out there, what is the best treatment for you?


Dr. Rotatori is an experienced board certified plastic surgeon that is known in the Orlando community as trustworthy, caring and skilled. He has achieved widespread recognition for his outstanding work in breast surgery, facial cosmetic surgery and body contouring. He is well known for his surgical expertise and artistic skills. Patients come from all over Florida to get the results that Dr. Rotatori’s skill, personal commitment and experience can offer.


In "I Feel Bad About My Neck," Nora Ephron gave voice to generations of women who have been silently hiding their necks in turtlenecks, scarves, and boas. Her blunt advice is to start concealing the neck at age 43. "Our faces are lies and our necks are the truth. You have to cut open a redwood tree to see how old it is, but you wouldn't if it had a neck." Sure, she had a point. But there is an equal embarrassment perched right above the neck: the sagging jawline.


With the development of treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Restylane, Radiesse and quality skin care products in Winter Park, patients have a wide range of choices to help with facial rejuvenation. Although these treatments can provide temporary improvement, many patients have a difficult time choosing between nonsurgical facial rejuvenation and a facelift.
