While we all wish to age gracefully, you might need a little bit of extra help with this goal if you are starting to notice unwelcome wrinkles and skin laxity. Though most people can spot signs of aging as soon as they appear, not everyone is knowledgeable about which treatments are available to turn back the clock.
All rejuvenating therapies share the same objective – restoring your youthful glow. However, each treatment targets a different facial area, so choosing the one that suits your needs is crucial for a successful and satisfactory result.
Dr. Jeannie MacDonald offers several surgical solutions to refresh your facial appearance.
1. Eyelid Lift
Eyelid surgery, technically known as blepharoplasty, is the perfect alternative for patients aiming to remove and tighten the excess skin from their eyelids and reduce the bagginess under their eyes. Eyelid lifts make patients look younger and rested as they effectively smooth wrinkles (crow’s feet in particular) and clear the eyes. This procedure can even help those facing difficulties in their vision due to the excess skin under the eyes.
- Brow lift: this procedure involves removing excess skin and wrinkles from the forehead and repositioning the eyebrows to make them look natural and in harmony with the eyes. It is performed through incisions in either the hairline or just at the eyebrow, achieving a younger, smoother look of the upper third of the face. Also known as a forehead lift, this treatment is ideal for those patients worried about frowns and expression lines.
- Neck lift: a neck lift improves the contours and general appearance of the neck area. It’s a common procedure, as multiple factors can affect this area, causing cosmetic issues like isolated wrinkles, double chins, or turtle necks. A neck lift can smooth and tighten the skin on the neck and jaw, provide a more defined and sharp jawline, and take years off the patient’s appearance. It can be performed on its own or combined with a facial lift.
- Facelift: A facelift dramatically enhances your facial appearance. This surgery reverses signs of aging like wrinkles, sagging skin, and expression lines by tightening facial muscles, removing fat, and trimming excess skin. After surgery, patients get a fresher, more youthful look – some of them look up to 10-15 years younger! This treatment involves a fine incision that starts in the hairline, goes down along the ear (first in front), and then continues around to the back of the ear to disappear into the hairline. A facelift targets multiple facial areas, so it’s ideal for those who want a noticeable transformation!
