Can Too Many Fillers at a Young Age Lead to Early Facelift Surgery?

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


Young people are always looking for easy ways to improve their appearance. This is why dermal fillers have become so popular in recent years. Fillers are administered in specific areas to add volume to the face and smooth out wrinkles. While fillers can provide stunning results, overuse can cause unexpected and undesirable side effects, like stretched-out skin.

Fillers are becoming increasingly prevalent among young adults in Las Vegas, NV, but there is concern that overuse can lead to cosmetic concerns. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi has helped countless patients reverse the signs of filler overuse through advanced facelift surgery. Call VIP Plastic Surgery for a skin assessment and see how we can help you look your best.

How do dermal fillers work?

Dermal fillers add volume and smooth out wrinkles in specific areas of the face. They enhance sunken or hollow cheeks, create fuller lips, and improve deep nasolabial folds (the lines that form along the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth). Young patients love fillers because they provide instant results, and they report looking and feeling more refreshed after treatment.

Dermal fillers are temporary, which means they need to be re-administered regularly to maintain results. Unfortunately, constant use of fillers may stretch out the skin and create a sagging appearance. This is especially true among patients who start using fillers at a young age – including those in their 20s and 30s. Overusing dermal fillers may require a long-lasting solution, like facelift surgery, in Las Vegas, NV.

How does facelift surgery help?

Facelift surgery removes excess skin and carefully tightens the underlying tissue to provide youthful results. Dr. Khorsandi personalizes facelift procedures to meet the needs of each patient, whether they have sagging skin in the upper face, mid-face, or jowls. Our practice offers the following facelift techniques, so you achieve great results:

  • Traditional facelift: Ideal for patients with more severe signs of aging, including drooping skin and deep wrinkles. Usually reserved for older patients but can yield dramatic outcomes.

  • Short scar (MACS) facelift: Uses small incisions behind the ear and up along the hairline. Best for a moderate amount of sagging skin on the neck and jowls without invasive surgery.

  • SMAS facelift: Addresses poor skin elasticity in the lower two-thirds of the face, including the cheeks and jowls. Also reserved for older patients with sagging skin.

  • Mid-facelift: Provides lift and volume in the mid-face and cheeks. Excellent for patients with a moderate amount of excess skin and volume loss in this region.

Am I a candidate for facelift surgery after dermal fillers?

Each patient is different, and Dr. Khorsandi will need to evaluate your situation to determine if facelift surgery is suitable for your needs. If you have been using dermal fillers from a young age and are now seeing classic signs of overuse, like loose or stretched-out skin, Dr. Khorsandi can work with you to find the best solution. Our goal is to provide natural results that make you feel youthful and confident.
