Is your face looking weary and aged? Are you ready to throw back the hands of time and refresh and rejuvenate your appearance? At Dr. Andrews Plastic Surgery, we offer a number of cosmetic procedures that can rev up a tired face and give you a renewed outlook on life. Check out these three options to treat yourself to a fresher look this spring.
In addition to their claim to fame as the “windows of our souls,” the eyes are also one of the first facial features to belie the passage of time. Fine lines, sagging skin and puffiness can make your eyes (and the rest of you) look tired, even if you are getting your full eight hours a night. Eyelid surgery can address all of these concerns, giving you a more alert appearance.
Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both at the same time. The procedure, which can be done under local anesthesia, removes excess skin and tissue that can age you prematurely and even impact your vision. Most patients are able to return to regular activities within 10-14 days after eyelid surgery.
Another area of the face that can make you look tired too soon is the brow area. Horizontal lines can begin to form across the forehead, while vertical lines between the eyebrows create the look of perpetual anger or worry. Sagging skin can cause the brow line to droop and can contribute to upper eyelid skin impeding your line of vision. A brow lift effectively lifts the skin of the brow, smoothing away worry lines and rejuvenating your appearance.
A brow lift can be performed a number of ways, depending on the specific needs of each patient.
The technique used will determine whether local or general anesthesia will be used and how long the recovery process will take. Incisions for this procedure can also vary, but are typically hidden within the hairline to keep visible post-operative scarring to a minimum.
If you want to wake up your appearance, but you aren’t quite ready for surgical procedures, injectable treatments offer another option. Injections of Botox, and dermal fillers can effectively smooth away fine lines and wrinkles that make you look weary and older than you feel. These procedures typically take just a few minutes to complete and there is minimal downtime after treatment.
