beautiful purple flowersAs we emerge from a long cold winter, we can turn our focus to warmer weather, lighter wardrobes, and looking our best. With so many options for rejuvenation of the face and body, each one of us can choose from a vast array of cosmetic surgical and non-surgical procedures to achieve the results we desire. We can also combine more extensive and less invasive aesthetic treatments to target all the issues we wish to address. Here is a partial guide to fighting the signs of aging, looking your best, and some of our most popular plastic surgery alternatives:

How to make your skin look younger:

  • preventive measures – use sunscreen daily, apply an antioxidant or retinoic acid product at night, moisturize, and stay hydrated
  • restorative interventions:
  • minimally invasive surgical procedures – fat injections (also called autologous fat grafts) restore volume and contain stem cells that improve skin tone and overall appearance

Best surgical options for rejuvenation of the face:

  • eyelid lift – corrects droopy upper eyelids, removes undereye bags and wrinkled eyelid skin, provides a more rested look
  • microsuction – minimally invasive liposuction of the lower face and neck improves jawline, corrects jowls, removes fat under the chin
  • rhinoplasty – corrects nasal deformities such as bony bump or hump, crooked septum, or bulbous tip
  • facelift and neck lift – tighten skin, lift and reposition soft tissues of the face and neck for smoother, younger look
  • fat injections – complement surgical treatments to fill in wrinkles and creases, add lost volume, improve overlying skin with stem cells

Achieving a more beautiful body:

  • liposuction – removes stubborn fat from areas where it persists despite proper diet and exercise, such as in the abdomen or thighs (saddle bags) in women, or flanks (love handles) and gynecomastia in men
  • breast augmentation – increases bust fullness and creates more shapely bosom in women with small or underdeveloped breasts, or after pregnancy and breastfeeding
    • choices for breast implants include saline implants, Ideal Structured Implants, and silicone gel implants
    • hundreds of options in various combinations of size, projection, and shape
  • breast lift and breast reduction – lift nipples, reduce areolas, reshape droopy, hanging breasts, correct asymmetry, and optionally reduce excessively large breasts
  • labiaplasty – removes excess tissue from enlarged labia and hooding of the clitoris to improve comfort and lessen bulkiness and visibility in bathing suits, leggings, and tight fitting clothing

Many of the aforementioned procedures may be performed together, and some complement each other to produce even better results. Be sure to discuss all your concerns and treatment options with your plastic surgeon prior to any cosmetic procedure. Choose a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in aesthetic plastic surgery and is experienced in the procedures you wish to undergo.
