As we age, we become increasingly susceptible to the signs of facial aging, like lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. Factors like sun exposure and smoking can even speed up the aging process, making you look years older than you actually are. If you’re not ready to simply accept the signs of facial aging, there are a number of surgical and non-surgical procedures designed to “turn back the clock” on your appearance and restore a more youthful look.
Four Procedures to Help Fight Facial Aging
- Facelift. Over time, it’s natural to notice midface sagging, jowls, deep creases between the nose and mouth, creases under the eyes, loose skin around the chin and jaw, and more. The facelift procedure, also known as a rhytidectomy, works to combat these changes by tightening muscle, removing fat and trimming skin from the face. Patients often report looking 10-15 years younger following this procedure.
- Brow lift. You may not realize it, but drooping or lined foreheads can cause you to look angry, sad or tired. The brow lift procedure works to restore a youthful, revitalized appearance by removing or altering muscles to smooth forehead lines and lift the eyebrows.
- Eyelid surgery. The aging process, sun exposure and more can all cause eyelids to droop and sag over time, creating not only cosmetic concerns but visual concerns as well. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a surgical procedure that works to revitalize your face by tightening muscles and tissue and removing excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids.
- Dermal fillers and injectables. For patient looking for a non-surgical, minimally-invasive alternative to address the signs of aging, injectables and fillers offer a solution. There are a number of different options, from BOTOX® Cosmetic to Restylane® and more, so contact your doctor today to find out which is right for you.
