Surgical and Non-surgical Treatment Options for Marionette Lines
Marionette lines - the name alone conjures up unpleasant images. Who wants to resemble a marionette in any form? Unfortunately, if you have begun to develop lines that run from the corners of your mouth to the edges of your chin, then yes - you have marionette lines. And if you want to do something about those marionette lines, then modern cosmetic medicine offers a variety of excellent solutions, from minimally invasive injectable treatments to state-of-the-art facial surgery.

We invite you to contact our practice today to schedule your initial consultation with Dr. McCall and take that first step toward feeling better about how you look.
Non-surgical Treatment Options
If you have only begun to experience the signs of marionette lines, or if you do not wish to undergo a more invasive plastic surgery procedure, then you may want to consider treatment with an injectable dermal filler. At Lake County Plastic and Hand Surgery, Dr. Tracy E. McCall offers JUVÉDERM®, one of the safest and most effective dermal fillers on the market, to restore volume to hollow areas on the lower face, including marionette lines. JUVÉDERM® injectable gel is based in hyaluronic acid, a protein that occurs naturally in the human body. It produces long-lasting results because hyaluronic acid attracts and binds to water. Although results are temporary, they can safely be repeated as necessary.
Facial Plastic Surgery
For a definitive long-term solution to marionette lines, especially if you have deep marionette lines, you might want to consider facelift surgery. Dr. McCall can modify your facelift surgery to focus on just the lower half of your face if you are not yet ready for a full facelift. However, if you are experiencing deep lines and wrinkles on your entire face, she can perform a comprehensive facelift, as well, perhaps combined with brow lift and eyelid surgery. As with all other procedures, Dr. McCall customizes facelift surgery to meet the unique needs and goals of the individual patient.
