Will Evaluation for Lower Facelift surgery Be Accurate if I Have Fillers?

I just had Radiesse for my nasolabial folds and Juvederm injected to fill out the upper and a little for the lower lip. Nice improvement. However, the little jowls are still there and since fillers or lasers won't help, I'm afraid that some sort of lower lift is in the near future. My question is, can a surgeon evaluate my face properly with all these fillers? Or is it better to let the fillers be absorbed before surgery?

Fillers and planning a facelift

Thanks for the question - In most cases having filler will not greatly change the ability to determine your needs for a facelift. Be sure to disclose to your treating surgeon the amount of filler, the location and the type used. With this information you should be able to get a good plan for facial rejuvenation. I hope this helps.
