Look The Way You Feel With Facial Rejuvenation
In the last decade, cosmetic treatments have become more accepted in society. People are living longer and lead more active lives. And with age, some women and men want to look and feel younger. Facial rejuvenation is one of the most effective, long-term ways to achieve this. Facial rejuvenation refers to any combination of medical procedures used to reduce the signs of aging. There are many types of facial rejuvenation treatments, both surgical and non-surgical. So choosing the proper treatment for you can often give desired results.
Do I need eyelid surgery?
With age, skin loses elasticity due to reduced collagen production. A lack of elasticity and gravity’s constant pull causes excess skin to collect on the upper and lower eyelids. Excess eyelid skin causes wrinkles, crepe-paper-like skin, bags, and dark circles under the eyes. In addition, on the upper eyelids, skin can hang over the eyelashes and obstruct vision. Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery removes excess skin from the upper eyelids and reduces bagginess from the lower eyelids.
How is it done?
A board-certified cosmetic surgeon will assess the patient and determine the best approach to blepharoplasty. If the surgeon is addressing the upper eyelid, a small incision is made in the natural groove of the upper eyelid. From there, the surgeon removes excess tissue. The surgeon can make an incision just below the eyelid or inside the eyelid for the lower eyelid. From there, a combination of skin removal, tissue removal, lasers, or fillers is used to rejuvenate the eyes. The procedure seeks to leave and show as little scarring as possible.
Ready for a brow lift?
An eyebrow lift improves the appearance of sagging skin on the forehead, upper eyelids, and eyebrows. A classic lift consists of a single continuous cut that begins at the ears and extends around the hairline. The surgeon will strive to avoid visible scars depending on the location of the hairline. Excess fat and skin are removed, and then the brow is stitched in a new position. In an endoscopic lift, the surgeon makes small incisions on the scalp. An endoscope, a tiny camera on the end of a thin tube, helps the surgeon make the necessary changes. Because the cuts are minor, this procedure is less invasive than the classic lift, with minimal scarring and a shorter recovery.
Consider facial implants
With silicone implants, facial implants improve specific aspects of the face, such as the cheekbones or jawline. Patients may opt to have the procedure for cosmetic reasons or a previous facial injury. With a jaw procedure, the implant is inserted beneath the lower lip, and the incision is placed through the upper lip or the lower eyelid with cheek implants. These implants give a more contoured, sculpted look.
When to consider facial rejuvenation
Of course, facial renewal can feel like a tough decision—many factors to consider, including cost, recovery time, risks, social benefits, and more. However, there are a few reasons to consider rejuvenation. People with deep wrinkles, Crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and jowls are good candidates. Middle-aged men and women wanting to fix dropping or sagging skin around the face or neck are good candidates. Finally, skincare treatments and non-surgical options like fillers or Botox fail to bring the desired results. Talk to a cosmetic surgeon for a customized facial rejuvenation plan when this happens.
Choose the right procedure today
Ultimately, sagging facial skin and wrinkles can reduce confidence and affect the quality of life. Seeking surgery as a resolution can give the desired look or even take a few years off the face. Facial implants, brow lifts, and eyelid surgery can also last several years. Consult a board-certified cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist about these treatments’ possible risks and benefits.
