About Nonsurgical Facelift
Have you heard of a "liquid facelift?" This is a nonsurgical treatment, typically consisting of injectable facial fillers and wrinkle relaxers. At Today's Cosmetic Surgery in Pittsburgh, PA, our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Chiu, performs his nonsurgical facelift with great skill and precision. He can rejuvenate a patient's skin and take years off of their appearance in less than an hour. Dr. Chiu's nonsurgical facelift typically includes a combination of wrinkle relaxers (BOTOX/Dysport) and dermal fillers (Juvederm/Restylane).
This is not a replacement for a surgical facelift, but it can be an alternative for individuals who are not yet ready to undergo an invasive, full facelift. Similarly, Dr. Chiu also offers the most advanced nonsurgical brow lifts, nonsurgical eyelid lifts, and nonsurgical neck lifts by implementing injectable relaxers and fillers as well. Dr. Chiu will use his experience, judgment, and conservative approach to replenish the aging contours of the face. During a consultation at Today's Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Chiu will discuss with every patient the different options that will help them achieve their goals.
Choice candidates for either a nonsurgical facelift, brow lift, neck lift, or eyelid lift will have the following:
- Wrinkles, lines, folds, drooping skin, or other signs of aging that need to be addressed.
- A desire for a nonsurgical, noninvasive approach.
- A desire to achieve natural-looking results with a subtle touch.
- Overall good health.

"Perfectionist, Natural, Conservative. - Dr. Chiu is a magician! He’s truly amazing. He’s a total perfectionist, always takes his time, listens to your concerns with a conservative approach & natural results. I’ve been elsewhere and will never trust anyone else with my face again. He specializes in the face not the whole body like so many others. Plus I love the fact that a medical doctor is doing the injections not just an “injector”. Highly recommend him in every way!"- F. / RealSelf / Mar 05, 2020
"Thumbs-up Lip Filler - I had lip augmentation with Juvederm and the results are fantastic. I'm going to do this for as long as I have lips! Plus, the pain level was so low it was practically non-existent. Before this I had lip augmentation with another doctor and it was very painful, so I was nervous about doing it again. I'm glad I took a chance with Dr. Chiu and highly recommend him to others considering..."- L. / RealSelf / Jan 10, 2019
"Astonishing Results - Dr. Chiu is a highly skilled and brilliant plastic surgeon! His keen eye for perfection and artistry has given me the very best, long-lasting and natural results that I have desired. His techniques used on my recent neck lift/tuck resulted in the most amazing results all with minimal pain and swelling. Whether it has been receiving Botox, fillers, or my recent neck lift/tuck surgery, my experience from the second I step into the office for my appointments to the smile that he puts on my face from the end result, has been true perfection and expertise that can't be matched. Dr. Chiu and Sara are dedicated to their patients, and I am thrilled and filled with gratitude by the results and care provided by this extraordinary team. Sara and Dr. Chiu are the BEST in Pittsburgh in my opinion!"- M. / RealSelf / Jun 22, 2020
What to Expect
Each nonsurgical lifting procedure: facelift, neck lift, brow lift, or eyelid lift, will utilize filler and/or relaxer injections into the desired areas. Dr. Chiu will begin by showing and confirming with you the planned injection areas and then proceed with the strategic placement of the fillers and relaxers in order to present a more three dimensionally lifted, youthful look. Depending on the extent of the treatment, the procedure could take anywhere between 30 - 60 minutes with some variations per patient. This is a noninvasive, outpatient procedure that requires little or no downtime afterward.
Patients can typically expect to see results instantly after their treatment, and they will also witness a gradual progression towards the best appearing results within a few weeks. Liquid facelifts (nonsurgical facelifts) and other nonsurgical lifting procedures can produce noticeable, natural results for up to 1, and in some cases 2 years depending on the severity of the case, the product implemented, whether optimal correction was achieved, and patient expectations. Typically, patients maintain their relaxer treatments every 3-6 months, and filler treatments 1-2 times a year.
