Over the years plastic surgery technology has evolved tremendously to help someone look and feel younger.
Many of these new technologies are less invasive and require less recovery time than before.
Here’s a look at a couple of the more popular anti-aging surgical techniques.
Endoscopic Brow Lift
A brow lift is commonly requested to remove or improve the creases that stretch across the forehead and between the eyebrows – normally referred to as frown lines. This procedure utilizes fiber-optic technology allowing the surgeon to perform this surgery without the need for large incisions. An endoscope helps eliminate bruising, scarring, infection and eases in recovery post-operatively.
- Over time the brow may change as a result of aging
- Lifting the brow may remove excessive skin and fullness from the upper eyelids
- It may also improve the symmetry of the eyebrows
- Change the overall shape of the eyebrows
- Helps remove wrinkles from off the brow
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Eyelid surgery is becoming one of the most requested surgeries today. This procedure removes the loose skin (baggy eyes) that obscures the natural fold of the upper eyelids.
There are several surgical techniques for eyelid lifts:
Transcutaneous Eyelid Blepharoplasty – uses incision that goes through the crease of the upper eyelid skin. Removing the excessive skin, muscle and fat will help give the eyes a more pleasing result.
Transconjunctival Eyelid Blepharoplasty – uses an incision in the inside of the eyelid where the fatty tissue is then removed. No skin incision is made with the technique so consequently if there is excessive eyelid skin this would not be the best blepharoplasty of choice.
Transcutaneous Lower Eyelid Fat Lipolysis technique – lipolysis has gained popularity in recent years by injecting fat dissolving materials or inserting a electrolyzed specialized needle through the skin into the pocket of fat – dissolving it.
A facelift surgery is a procedure where a person receives the most visible surgical results. Loose facial and neck skin are stretched or removed to produce a new youthful appearance.
For additional information about any of these procedures both Dr. Sorosky and Dr. Park would be happy to consult with you.
Recent studies have shown the age percentages of people having facelifts are the following:
- 1% for patients under the age of 35
- 29% for patients between the ages of 35 through 50
- 53% for patients between the ages of 51 through 64
- 17% for patients 65 and older
There are things to consider before you have a facelift procedure.
It is important to know that people with good skin elasticity usually have better results than those that don’t. While the natural tendency is for people to lose their skin elasticity as they age, there are many factors that can contribute to it’s acceleration, including; smoking, drinking excessively and extreme exposures to the natural elements like sun and wind over the course of one’s life.
It is also important that a person who desires to have a facelift is in good health. This will ensure they heal faster and have an easier time during their recovery.
A facelift can help you return to a more youthful appearance and it can also help you improve your self-confidence.
The draw back is that a facelift patient should have realistic expectations about their surgical outcomes before they undergo any surgery.
