Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Procedures To Combat Aging
Aging of the face is inevitable. Over time the skin on our face and neck loses elasticity. Crow’s feet appear at the corners of our eyes. Fine forehead lines become creases and then, gradually, deeper folds. On the lower face, the jawline softens, and beneath the chin, another chin or vertical folds appear at the front of the neck. Genetics, personal habits and skin care, the pull of gravity, and sun exposure all contribute to the aging of the face.
Fortunately, it’s possible to counteract the effects that contribute to an aging face. You can restore your natural youthful appearance or even address the early signs of aging before they take hold. More and more these days men and women are undergoing non-surgical and surgical facial rejuvenation procedures sooner, rather than later, to get ahead of the aging process. They are seeing better results because of it! Whether the focus is on restoring facial symmetry and definition or achieving an overall younger look, it’s possible to turn back time with the help of facial rejuvenation procedures.
Since there are many facial rejuvenation options available, here we are discussing the top surgical facial rejuvenation procedures.
Top Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Procedures:
Brow And Forehead Lift
The brow and forehead areas are often the first places to show fine lines and wrinkles. For those who have sagging eyebrows and wrinkled foreheads, a brow and forehead lift can soften the face and smooth lines for a more youthful appearance. This procedure is recommended for those with severe signs of facial aging in the brow and forehead area. It is most commonly performed on patients between the ages of forty to sixty. However, it can help younger patients as well who have developed furrows or frown lines due to stress or sun exposure.
Your plastic surgeon will make an incision in the hairline or use an Endoscopic method to tighten the tissues and raise the eyebrows so that you no longer look tired, aged, or even angry. With a more relaxed and refreshed appearance, you will feel more youthful and look significantly younger.
The eyes are an area where age first begins to make an appearance as well. The skin around your eyes is much thinner than other areas of your face. This means that it ages sooner than other areas. Over time, your eyes can look tired, dull, puffy, and even droopy. Eyelid surgery, also known as Blepharoplasty, can make your eyes look younger and brighter and fight signs of aging. Men and women of all ages who want to rid themselves of droopy eyelid skin or fatty pockets in the upper and/or lower eyelids can benefit from this procedure.
Like with aging, eyelid surgery and its intended results are based on the individual. Eyelid surgery can do several different things including smoothing out wrinkles and reducing their appearance, repositioning fat deposits around your eyes, removing any fat deposits that make your eyes look puffy, and lifting the skin around your eyes so that it is tighter and younger looking. Your plastic surgeon can accomplish these goals using various techniques, depending on your needs. For example, the incisions can be made at your hairline, at or inside your lower eyelid, or at the crease in your upper eyelid. Because eyelid surgery can help improve your appearance in many ways, it is one of the most popular surgical facial rejuvenation procedures.
One of today’s greatest plastic surgery myths is that minimally invasive procedures have taken the place of a facelift. Unfortunately, trendy names like ‘Thread Lift’ or ‘Lifestyle Lift’ don’t guarantee the facial procedure will have the desired effect. A traditional facelift is still one of the best counter-aging surgical procedures available.
A facelift will tighten and lift the tissues of the face and neck and take up to ten years off your look. Incisions are inconspicuously made starting at the temples and extending in front of and behind the ear within the natural folds. They may also continue hidden in the hairline. The scars remain difficult to notice after surgery and further fade over time. While most candidates for facelift surgery are in their forties to their sixties, older individuals with good skin elasticity and facial bone structure may also be good candidates for the procedure.
