Were you shocked to see how tired and aged your face appeared to be the last time you took a look in the mirror? If this is the case, having one – or more – of the following procedures carried out will not only result in you looking more radiant; you will end up looking many years younger as well.
Eyelid surgery can be performed on men and women who may have noticed their eyelids drooping or sagging with age. When performing blepharoplasty, surgeons will make tiny incisions in the creases of the upper and lower eyelids and remove any excess skin or fat that may have accumulated there. Once this is done, it helps to firm the eyelid to the point where the skin is no longer loose or sagging, leaving patients looking younger and rejuvenated.
This treatment has become extremely popular because it is quite affordable, relatively quick to administer and results can usually be seen within a few days at the most. Botox can not only be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, creases and crow’s feet throughout the facial area; it can be administered into the lips and the area surrounding the mouth as well, which will make them look more youthful.
As patients age, gravity along with a loss of natural collagen in the body causes their cheeks to lose a lot of their natural volume or to start sagging downwards. In many cases, deep creases start appearing as well, making patients look droopy, permanently tired and older than they should. Plastic surgeons can address these issues by inserting solid silicone implants into a patient’s cheeks, which will make them look fuller. The main advantage of these implants is that they cannot leak, which means that patients will be able to enjoy their new look for many years.
Face and Neck Lifts
Some of the most common signs of aging include the appearance of neck wattles, drooping jowls and sagging skin around the eyes. All of these issues can be addressed by means of a face lift and/or neck lift procedure, whereby a surgeon will lift the cheek area, jowls and surrounding neck muscles. This is done by making small incisions behind the ears and along the hairline to ensure that the incisions heal without causing any visible scarring, and patients can look forward to firmer skin and muscle tone afterwards.
Although not strictly a plastic surgery procedure, dermabrasion can help rejuvenate a patient’s appearance by sloughing off the outer layer of facial skin to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and other imperfections that may be present. This enables new skin to grow through, which in turn leaves the patient with smoother and younger looking skin.
