Popular Anti-Aging Treatments from a Plastic Surgeon

Posted on: November 20, 2018

To reverse aging, sometimes a surgical procedure is the best option. If you have a superficial blemish that cannot be restored without surgery, then you might consider booking a consultation with a plastic surgeon to express your goals and worries. Every surgical procedure is prone to complications, which means you must choose a board-certified plastic surgeon with positive reviews by former patients.

New developments in plastic surgery have ensured personalized treatments to improve your appearance and self-esteem. The following are popular anti-aging treatments from a plastic surgeon.

Popular anti-aging treatments

Facelift surgery

The primary purpose of a facelift is to make your face appear relaxed to give you a youthful look. The process entails lifting and tightening the facial muscles to form a visually appealing, contoured appearance and reinvigorate the face. Also, additional skin and wrinkles will be cleared. The scars take around six months to heal.

The cost of facelift surgery is not uniform; anesthesia, operating room facilities and other related costs may add to the average price.

Liposuction

Often called Lipo, this surgical procedure is performed to eliminate fat deposits and skin from the neck, abdomen, thighs and other parts of the body prone to fat accumulation. Liposuction aims to decrease the fat in the surgical location. Nevertheless, the procedure is not meant to replace diet and exercise.

Rhinoplasty

Also known as a nose job, rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that alters the appearance and size of the nose. You may decide to thin the nose out, remove a bump or change the appearance, but ensure the surgeon verifies that the new nose will match your facial structure. Some patients also get chin implants to fit the new nose. Recovery takes a few days, but the nose may not heal completely for some weeks.

Blepharoplasty

Eyelid surgery, sometimes called an eye lift or blepharoplasty, is performed to lessen eye bags in the lower eyelid and remove surplus skin from the upper eyelids. The surgery is typically an aspect of anti-aging treatment. It is also a practical method of improving the eyesight of seniors whose sagging upper eyelids inhibit their vision.

Nevertheless, eyelift surgery is not effective for clearing dark circles from the eyes or removing crow’s feet or other forms of facial wrinkles. In some cases, the surgeon may use filler injections and laser resurfacing for the procedure.

Breast augmentation

This surgical process entails the use of breast implants to improve the shape and size of the breasts. It is designed to restore the breast volume to achieve better roundness and breast size evenness. Breast implants help give your self-esteem and body shape a boost.

Breast augmentation is sometimes an aspect of the “mommy makeover” after childbirth. The recovery period for the procedure is about five to seven days.

Butt augmentation

Also called gluteoplasty, butt augmentation entails the insertion of implants into each buttock to improve their size and shape. The purpose is to decrease the appearance of cellulite and lift the butt to get a youthful appearance. Following a butt augmentation, you will need a few days before you can resume mild work, and it may take several months for a full recovery.
