Dr Steve Merten of Pure Aesthetics provides a look at what aesthetic concerns require facelift surgery compared to less invasive cosmetic treatment options.

Sydney, NSW – Dr Steve Merten, a plastic surgeon in Sydney, provides each of his facial rejuvenation patients with a tailored treatment plan to help them reach their ideal aesthetic outcome. While some patients can reach their goals through minimally invasive procedures, Dr Merten explains that others may require the more in-depth option of facelift surgery. The surgeon says that both surgical and non-surgical options have the potential to take years off of one’s appearance, but depending on the patient, one may be more appropriate.

There are many factors that Dr Merten looks at with each patient before he can determine whether surgical or non-surgical procedures will provide the best results. These include:

  • The age of the patient
  • Their health history
  • The extent and severity of their symptoms
  • Their concerns
  • Their budget

Each of these factors helps Dr Merten determine which treatment method would be best for each patient. He says that older patients with severe signs of aging may benefit more from plastic surgery, while younger patients may get great results with cosmetic procedures, like dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections. During the initial consultation, Dr Merten discusses what the patient hopes to achieve and, based on this information, the treatment options that can help them reach their goal results.

For those considering a facelift or other facial rejuvenation treatment methods, Dr Merten recommends consulting with a qualified plastic surgeon that has experience in the specific procedure. He emphasises that the skill of the plastic surgeon can have a significant impact on the outcome of the procedure.
