When you hear plastic surgery, what do you think of? Perhaps it’s changing the appearance of someone’s nose or removing fat with a tummy tuck. While cosmetic desires like these are often achieved with plastic surgery, there are also options specifically designed to shed years off a person’s appearance!
Learn which surgical procedures are the best fit for patients in search of an effective anti-aging solution.
Did you know that your eyes are often the first area of your face to show signs of aging? While puffy bags below the eyes and drooping eyelids can appear because of genetics, these are also common effects of aging. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, specializes in removing excess skin and fat that causes sagging on the upper and lower eyelids.
Eyelid surgery is most commonly performed on patients 35 years or older. But since this treatment can also address hereditary concerns in addition to effects of aging, it is popular among patients younger than 35 as well. The days of looking older or more tired than you feel can be over with the help of eyelid surgery!
Facelifts and Necklifts
Lines and wrinkles occur naturally over time, and unfortunately, there’s no way to tell exactly how you’ll age. Luckily, rhytidectomy, or facelift and necklift surgery, can help patients achieve a complete anti-aging makeover. Designed to correct deep facial creases, tighten weakened muscles and remove excess fat deposits, this treatment can help you regain the youthful appearance you once had.
Each facelift and necklift procedure is unique, with Dr. Lazarus creating a customized treatment plan just for you. Unlike eyelid surgery which can be performed on a range of ages, rhytidectomy patients are typically between the ages of 40 and 60. Severe effects of aging can be corrected, but this procedure is recommended for patients whose skin has retained some elasticity (the ability for skin to return to its original state after being stretched).
