Am I a Candidate for Facial Rejuvenation?
Good candidates for facial rejuvenation will be in good physical health, maintain steady body weight, be non-smokers, and have realistic goals in mind. You may not be an ideal candidate for facial rejuvenation if you are obese, smoke and drink alcohol regularly and/or have underlying medical conditions such as high blood pressure.

Types of Facial Rejuvenation
Dr. Bonillas offers surgical and non-surgical forms of facial rejuvenation.
The facelift is the longest-lasting procedure for facial rejuvenation. It’s hard to believe the origins of facelifts are over 100 years old. Facelifts have aged phenomenally well, with innovations that make them safer and more effective than ever before. However, facelifts for facial rejuvenation are not simple processes. A highly technical and complex procedure, skilled surgeons are adept at achieving remarkable results. But don’t trust your face to just any doctor. You want a facial rejuvenation expert such as Dr. Bonillas to ensure the best results.
Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, presents some challenges for correction that might elude a new patient. No nose is perfectly symmetrical. Even noses that might appear in symmetry often have subtle distinctions between the right and left. When you entrust your nose with a plastic surgeon, make sure you have an experienced surgeon that understands the subtleties of rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty can be performed for both functional and cosmetic reasons. One popular reason for nose surgery is a deviated septum, which often causes breathing issues.
Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)
It’s said the eyes are the “windows to your soul”. Research in cognitive science finds that eyebrows are also one of the first things people notice about someone’s face. Eyebrows are also extremely important in conveying emotions and non-verbal communication. Browlifts are an increasingly popular rejuvenative technique to reverse aging and restore youthful vigor.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
It may surprise you to know that eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is the most popular facial rejuvenation procedure, following rhinoplasty. Many patients seek eyelid surgery during their quest for rejuvenation. Some people’s eyelids consist of very thin skin. Some have afflictions that affect the eyelids including aging, smoking, and obesity. The value most people place on the eyes can’t be underestimated. Blepharoplasty can be conducted by itself, though it often accompanies brow lifts.
Preparing for Facial Rejuvenation
After your initial consultation but before your procedure, you will have a pre-op meeting with Dr. Bonillas to go over any specific instructions he might have for you. In the days leading up to surgery, make sure you wash with antibacterial soap. Make sure you take any pre-op medications your doctor prescribes.
Recovery from Facial Rejuvenation Procedures
Because many facial rejuvenation procedures require IV sedation, arrange for someone to take you home as you don’t want to drive after general anesthesia or IV sedation. The last thing you want is to get into an accident while beginning your journey to facial rejuvenation. Recovery will depend on the procedures chosen, and vary from individual to individual. When your goal is to rejuvenate your facial features, you don’t want to take any shortcuts.
Make sure to follow all the instructions from the surgeon’s office, especially if you want to minimize scars.
Make sure to keep on your surgical tape for as long as recommended. You might be tempted to remove it, but refrain from doing that. The tape ensures the incisions properly heal. Stay out of the sun. The sun can darken scars. If you can’t avoid sun exposure, make sure to wear the strongest SPF product available. Ask your surgeon about any additional topical treatment you can apply that minimizes scarring.

What is the Cost of Facial Rejuvenation in Scottsdale, AZ?
Depending on which procedures you and your surgeon decide upon, the costs will vary. Insurance might cover some procedures, so make sure to ask as many questions as possible during your consultation and Dr. Bonillas will give you precise information about pricing. Financing options are available to help offset the costs.
Best is a relative term for something as individual and personal as facial rejuvenation. Many factors contribute to which rejuvenative facial treatment will work best for you. The best treatment for your friend or neighbor might not be the best treatment for your ideal look. It’s best to consult with an expert such as Dr. Bonillas to go over all your options.
There is no one-size-fits-all answer for the duration of facial rejuvenation techniques. A lot depends on your body and lifestyle choices. In general, injectables can be expected to last up to two years while surgical rejuvenation techniques are more enduring. Facelifts can last for five years or more. Make sure your surgeon has verifiable reviews from former patients.
