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 appearance.
1. Eyelid Lift
Eyelid surgery, technically known as blepharoplasty, is the perfect procedure to remove lax skin around your eyelids and address prominent under eye bags. An upper or lower blepharoplasty will make you look younger and more rested. It also has practical benefits if your sagging upper eyelid skin is obscuring your peripheral vision, making daily tasks like reading and driving more challenging.
2. Brow Lift
Drooping eyebrows that have fallen below their natural position can contribute to hooded eyes and a permanently angry or tired expression. With a brow lift, Dr. MacDonald will reposition your brow through small incisions concealed in your hairline or eyebrows.
3. Neck Lift
In many cases, the delicate neck skin ages more rapidly than your face, leading to cosmetic issues like prominent muscle banding, a double chin, jowls, or a turkey wattle. A neck lift can smooth and tighten the skin along your neck and jawline, creating a slender neckline with a clearer separation between your jaw and neck.
Facelifts are the gold standard of anti-aging procedures, with the ability to target multiple concerns simultaneously. In rejuvenating the lower two-thirds of your face, Dr. MacDonald can remove wrinkles such as nasolabial folds, reposition the underlying muscles, and remove excess skin. While nothing can stop the aging process, you can expect to look 10 to 15 years younger after a facelift.
