When you look in the mirror in a well-lit room, do you love what you see, or are there particular features that you overlook because they are not pleasing? A lot of the people we meet pass over one or more part of their face for this very reason. Maybe it’s your eyelids that you don’t love due to their droopiness. Maybe you’re trying to love it all and accept this thing we call aging, but your sagging jawline or flat cheeks keep you from your utmost confidence.
If you recognize that you’re not completely satisfied with the contours of your face, you may realize that there’s more of you that wants a change than wants to endure an utterly natural aging process. Facial rejuvenation is definitely on the table. The question is, how do you choose from a virtual cosmetic buffet? Let’s look at the options.
First Things First
For you to fully grasp what cosmetic treatments are best suited to your desired outcome, it is wise to consult with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon. In our office near Las Vegas, we offer both surgical and non-surgical approaches to facial rejuvenation. Do not shy away from a cosmetic surgeon because you assume you will be told you need surgery. Our priority is to supply you with the full extent of information you need to make the wisest decision for yourself.
Eyes or Face?
One of the primary questions that patients ask today is whether eyelid rejuvenation or facelift surgery is right for them. The truth is, neither may be necessary.
We can rejuvenate eyelids with blepharoplasty, yes, and this may be the best approach. However, the early signs of eyelid laxity that are related to a downward pull on the brow muscle may be reduced using Botox or Ultherapy. When you visit us, we will perform a thorough assessment of your tissue and discuss the results that are possible with each of these treatment options.
Facial rejuvenation may need to extend beyond the eyes if the cheeks have flattened and the jawline has softened into jowls. Facelift techniques have expanded over several years. This allows us to meet the exact needs of each patient without going more lifting than is necessary. Many men and women obtain the results they seek with a mid-face lift only or a limited-incision lift. At the same time, we also can’t overlook the value of non-surgical cheek augmentation and skin tightening (again with Ultherapy).
