With cosmetic surgery, you’re never too old to look younger!
Today, people are healthier and living longer than ever before. Many of our patients in their 60s, 70s and 80s have told us that when they look in the mirror, the person they see looks older than they feel. They want to lead not only a healthy life, but a younger looking one. They want to look as good on the outside as they feel on the inside.
A variety of cosmetic surgery procedures are performed by our doctor for patients in our region that wish to look as young as they feel. If you have been considering cosmetic surgery to reverse the signs of aging, you need to understand what procedures can and can’t do.
The most popular Down Aging procedures
Botox is the most popular non-surgical procedure for patients over 60. It is used to effectively improve the appearance of frown lines, forehead creases and “crow’s feet.” It relaxes the underlying muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Chemical Peels can repair sun-damaged skin and are widely used with older patients who have had decades of ultraviolet light exposure.
Eyelid Surgery or blepharoplasty can give you a brighter, more youthful appearance. A blepharoplasty can eliminate those unwanted bags and wrinkles and help you look as energetic and cheerful as you feel.
Browlifts or forehead lifts can smooth out wrinkles and correct drooping brows to provide a younger, friendlier appearance.
Facelifts are probably the most widely known procedure in plastic surgery. Today, surgeons are able to tighten both the facial skin and the underlying tissue as well.
A Neck Lift can tighten loose, sagging skin under the chin and provide a dramatic, youthful profile.
Cosmetic Breast Surgery can greatly improve self-esteem for many women. A breast lift, breast reduction or even a breast augmentation procedure can make a woman feel more vibrant and attractive while drastically improving the way she views herself.
Liposuction surgery is performed to actually remove unwanted, localized deposits of fat cells from the body. The result is a resculpting of bulging areas into more attractive contours. Liposuction is often requested by older men to remove their love handles.
Your Down Aging consultation
We want you to have a thorough understanding of what procedure or procedures will best help you achieve the results you desire. During your consultation, our physician will discuss your goals for the surgery, help you select the best procedure and explain your probable outcome of treatment. Your doctor will let you know what can realistically be expected before, during and after your procedure.
We will take your complete medical history and perform an exam. You may be shown before and after photographs of other patients with similar procedures and we may take preoperative photographs of you to evaluate the changes.
What is recovery like from Down Aging procedures?
After our doctor performs your cosmetic surgery procedure, healing is a gradual process. Recovery is different for every patient and recovery times for these procedures vary with each procedure. Our doctor will give you complete post-operative instructions during your consultation.
