Many characteristics of the face start to give away our age as time passes. Sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, facial creases, and bags beneath the eyes are just some of the effects of facial aging that can make us look older and worn out. Most of us wish we could halt the aging process, but even with at-home treatments to prevent facial aging, Father Time will still take hold. We may not be able to stop aging indicators from forming, but we do have cosmetic options to help diminish the appearance of facial aging. Dr. Alexander offers a variety of facial plastic surgery procedures to help you turn back the clock to look and feel more youthful.
What Are My Facial Plastic Surgery Options?
There are many factors that contribute to an aging face, such as genetics, environment, lifestyle, and diet. Thankfully, plastic surgery offers patients the option to reverse unwanted signs of aging. Depending on your facial needs and goals, there are different procedures Dr. Alexander can perform. He will evaluate your facial anatomy to help you decide on the best surgery or configure a combination of techniques to create a rejuvenated facial appearance. The following are the facial plastic surgery procedures we offer:
- Facelift: Facial sagging in the mid-face as well as loose skin and fat deposits in the face and neck are corrected by removing excess skin and fatty tissue. Different facelift techniques can be used, such as a full facelift, mid-facelift, and/or neck lift surgery.
- Brow lift: Drooping eyebrows, wrinkles on the forehead, and furrows between the eyebrows can be corrected through incisions in the temples and the natural crease of the eyelids.
- Eyelid lift: Sagging of the upper eyelids, fat deposits underneath the lower eyelids, dark circles under the eyes, and excess skin obstructing vision are corrected by performing upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery, or both.
- Nose surgery: The size and shape of the nose are changed to create a better-proportioned nasal structure to improve the aesthetics and/or the function of the nose.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Facial plastic surgery results are designed to be long lasting. Someone may not be able to prevent the aging process from taking hold, but they can maintain their results with a healthy lifestyle and diet. Following a daily skin care regimen and refraining from unhealthy habits, such as smoking, are highly recommended in order to achieve longer-lasting results. Overall, patients will notice a dramatic change in their facial appearance, which makes them look naturally younger.
